Circumcision and the profit motive:

People need to recognize that you cannot trust someone to be honest with you if they have a vested interest in promoting a lie.

The Medical Establishment makes way too much money off of circumcision to admit that it is Genital Mutilation, that it does destroy pleasure, and that it has no health benefits. So when the truth begins to come out, they attempt to suppress it with misinformation- quack studies that are supposed to prove that circumcision has health benefits, and does not destroy pleasure. Anyone who believes these studies is being an utter fool- just like anyone who believes that GMO's are not unhealthy or dangerous because Monsanto, a company with a vested interest in promoting the idea that GMO's are harmless, released a flawed and bogus 'study' which showed -you guessed it- that GMO's are completely harmless.

Just like with the Tobacco Industry- history will record with astonishment how long a profit seeking group was able to, through the supposed credibility of 'healthcare professionals,' and 'studies,' deceive the public into buying their harmful product. Many people do not remember that 'healthcare professionals' between the 1930's and 50's also used to recommend smoking as 'beneficial to your health,' {1} please read this article and see if you can spot history repeating itself:

"For a long time, physicians were the authority on health. Patients trusted in their doctors' education and expertise and, for the most part, followed their advice. When health concerns about cigarettes began to receive public attention in the 1930s, tobacco companies took preemptive action. They capitalized on the public’s trust of physicians in order to quell concerns about the dangers of smoking. Thus was born the use of physicians in cigarette advertisement."

Likewise, circumcision was originally introduced for the purpose of destroying male sexual pleasure and mutilating the penis enable to discourage masturbation,{2} like FGM, MGM was designed to control sexuality. However, after the social stigma against masturbation had passed, and performing unnecessary surgery to destroy a persons ability to feel pleasure no longer appealed to most people, circumcision rates began falling rapidly. So the Medical Establishment began taking action because circumcision was too profitable for them, and began releasing quack studies to 'prove' that circumcision doesn't reduce sexual pleasure, despite previously recommending it for the purpose of reducing sexual pleasure!

“When you knit this together into a full story, the scope of it and the way it duped the public was just incredible."

Just like circumcision!

"Executives at tobacco companies knew they had to take action to suppress the public’s fears about tobacco products. “Tobacco companies asked themselves: How can we go about reassuring the public that particularly cigarettes, but also cigars and pipes, are not harmful?” Jackler told HemOnc Today. The answer was to use medical research and physicians to show the public that cigarettes were not harmful."
 
This is the exact same way that the Medical Establishment went about circumcision- bogus medical research and cash-hungry doctors.

This, ultimately, is all I see medicalized circumcision as- like Female Genital Mutilation, a savage and barbaric, unnecessary surgery, done for the purpose of destroying sexual pleasure, and controlling sexuality. An ancient relic from our species barbaric and savage ancestors that somehow managed to continue on into our modern world- only with the help of the profit motive, the most effective means of getting things done, and the disgusting greed of unethical pedophiliac doctors.
Adam Smith said:

"Men whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public, and who accordingly have, upon many occasions, both deceived and oppressed it." {3}

Libertarianism and Circumcision:

A while ago I made another blog entitled "Men's Rights USA,' but now I decided to simply forget about that blog and cover those issues I did in that blog in this blog instead, as well as everything else I cover here. The reason for this is that I realized that Male Genital Mutilation wasn't just a Men's Rights issue, it was also a Libertarian issue, and Men's Rights, as well as Women's Rights, were all encompassed in the simple philosophy we call Libertarianism.

Don't believe me? Well let me explain, Modern Day Libertarianism is just a revival and an adaptation of Classical Liberalism, which was founded by John Locke. The basic principle is that every human is entitled to certain Natural Rights, of Life, Health, Liberty, and Property. These rights are Negative Rights, which means that:
"All equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his Life, Health, Liberty, or Possessions."

The fundamental principle behind this is self ownership: you own yourself- therefore no one has the right to kill you, because you own your life, no one has the right to hold you captive, because you own your body and have the right to direct it as you see fit, damage your health, because you own your body and such aggression damages your body, or steal from you, because, as you own yourself, you also own the results of your labor, your property. 

All humans are equal in these rights, and as these principles apply universally, everyone ought also to be equal before the law. 

What does this have to do with Circumcision? Well, cutting off a part of a persons body without their consent violates Self Ownership, as well as a persons Health and Property. Furthermore, as everyone ought to be equal before the law according to Classical Liberalism, that baby girls are protected from this violence, but baby boys are not, is contrary to Libertarianism. 

It also means that Men and Women ought to be ensured equal protection under the law, which confirms both Egalitarian (non Misandric, non SJW) Feminism and Men's Rights.

Decline in pageviews

I've noticed that my page views have been declining- originally each of my posts would get between about 20 and 40 views each. But after my post 'learn what libertarianism is before you criticize it,' I have only been getting about 5 views each. The solution to this is for you to share these posts with people and to post my links on social media websites.

I hope to make this blog mainstream, and gain popularity as I make posts. But enable to do that we need to share these posts all across the internet.

Transgenderism is bullsh*t

I know that this isn't normally the subject of this blog, and though I am a Libertarian Atheist as opposed to a Conservative Christian, I still think that transgenderism is complete and utter bullshit.

So, let's start with what transgenderism is.It is the idea that you can have a 'gender identity' which is separate from your 'biological sex.' This relies on a redefinition of 'gender,' which used to be a synonym for sex. Now they have defined it as:
"The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones)."
 So now 'gender' refers to the state of having traits which society has decided were traits specific to one set of genitalia or another.

This makes everything sound very complex, which prevents us from seeing it for what it really is. So let's explain it step by step:
People have genitalia- some people have female genitalia and some people have male genitalia. This is called biological sex. Now, Society has determined that people with vaginas should assume this set of specific roles and traits, and people with penises should assume this other set of roles and traits. Some people with vaginas, however, assume roles and traits that society has decided people with penises should assume, and vice versa. Therefore, such people are actually men, and not women, because they assume these stereotypical male gender roles.

As an objectivist and an Aristotelian, I believe that this is complete and utter bullshit. I only believe in cold hard reality- things that I can feel, smell, taste, hear, or see- like genitals, and not things that I cannot feel, smell, taste, hear, or see- like gender identities. Personally I think it is dangerous when even a significant part of our population jumps right on top of a bandwagon, transgenderism, which literally and admittedly has no relation to reality whatsoever.

Ask a transgender if they can prove they are what gender they claim they are, and I guarantee you they will not be able to answer this in any way that helps their case. They will most likely respond along the lines of 'well, it has nothing to do with the physical world, so I can't prove it.' Well, if it has nothing to do with the physical world, then why should I be expected to just take your word for it?

Even these transgender-enthusiasts admit that gender identity is entirely based on a persons subjective feelings and preferences. This is flat out Platonism- and I'm sorry, but I am not a Platonist, I am an Aristotelian. I do not believe n the 'world of shapes,' for the same reason that I do not believe in transgenderism. It is just a concept that has no relation to reality, and that some pseudo-intellectual made up.

I'm a philosopher folks- not a feelosipher.

The solution to the budget:

We are in a budget crisis, so I formulated a plan to eliminate the deficit and pay off the national debt. Here is a few diagrams demonstrating all Federal Spending as of 2015. {1} What we can do first is eliminate funding to Food & Agriculture, Transportation, Housing & Community, International Affairs, and Energy & Environment. Then you will be left with the following programs, which should be funded as follows:
Social Security- 1.22 Trillion
Medicare- 1 Trillion
Military- 588 Billion
Interest on the Debt- 225 Billion
Veterans- 157 Billion
Education- 100 Billion
Science- 29 Billion
This will reduce the Federal Budget to 3.319 Trillion. We then abolish all taxation, and replace them with a single flat tax of 25% on all income beyond an exemption of 20,000 per person in your household. This will give us a revenue of 3.4 Trillion, and a surplus of 81 Billion.

Now regarding the National Debt. The Federal Government owns 1.89 Billion Acres of land, worth a grand total of 23 Trillion Dollars. {2} Now, my copy of the constitution says that aside from a number of ports and forts across the country, the Federal Government has no constitutional authority to own any land at all. So, we sell it to American Citizens just like Andrew Jackson did when he paid off the National Debt.

Government invented the internet?

Sam Seder, the propagandized socialist baboon, loves to claim that the government invented the internet, among other things including penicillin. It seems that what he is referring to is an experiment in the 1950's where a group of scientists who received government funds used wireless technology to transmit information from one computer to another.

The government did not invent the internet- both computers and wireless technology, as well as commercially available internet, were invented privately. All this was was a group of scientists using technology that was already there together.

Blasting the mindless driblings of freedom hating zombies

Mindless anti-libertarian zombies have gotten to such a point where they are literally pulling random shit out of their assholes and hurdling it at libertarianism, even though they don't even know what it is. One such piece of gibberish is that 'libertarians are just selfish!' Which was just so fucking stupid I had to take a five hour break and then come back to deal with it.

Anyway- I am going on this rant today because some fucktard on the internet literally said that libertarianism is an 'inherently selfish ideology.'  Now, that statement was just so absurdly stupid I had to stand in awe- for about 15 minutes- before I could make sense of anything. He basically just pulled a random word that he thought had a negative connotation and called libertarians it because he had no argument, and he knew this- so he went with an ad-hominid attack instead.

Excuse me- how is promoting liberty selfish? I guess because libertarians want to live free? What the fuck are these imbeciles going on about?

I think they have hit such a level of stupidity that they aren't even wrong anymore- they're just spouting out random gibberish and they're so dumb they actually believe that its this 'profound concept,' that they thought of.
