Would You Push The Button: Anarchy Roundtable Ep 3


The magic anarchy button,
Ending police makes things better,
False flags,

Show Notes:

Steve Pinker’s bogus statistics: A critique of The Better Angels of Our Nature (Part Two)   turns out that if we include all wars, atrocities and acts of murder, then the percentage of deaths that can be attributed to known acts of violence is highest for the 20th century. If, on the other hand, we look at the percentage of people that died each year as a result of violence, then you could argue (using Pinker’s figures, which as I’ll show are badly flawed) the 13th and 17th centuries were more violent than the 20th, but even so, you’d still have to concede that the 20th century was still one of the most violent of the past 25 centuries in human history.

Businesses raise millions to keep lights on in Mexicantown  Residents in the stretch of West Vernor said they were disappointed to learn their neighborhood wasn’t part of Detroit’s five-year repair plan. The infrastructure of their street lights is crumbling, literally leaving them in the dark.

One interesting side note on the above article:  It was difficult to find that article and I was unable to find the one I was looking for, talking about how businesses were concerned about the lack of lights and them getting together to put lights in front of their own businesses.  What I found instead, were dozens of articles praising the government for installing street lights.  This would be like there being news articles praising JC Penny for having clothes on racks in the stores.

Entire Town’s Police Force Went on Strike, It Backfired. No One Wants Them Back  It turns out that without the transit police there is less traffic, and without the municipal police there has been no noticeable increase in crime.

A False flag operation describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by perpetrators other than those who actually planned and executed them.
