The Crime of Conspiracy

The atheist H.L. Mencken was wrong.

An organized crime syndicate -- like "the Mafia" -- is evil. Its core purposes are evil, it is dedicated to evil, and dedicated to increasing the dedication of its members and their willingness to keep the criminal enterprise secret. Simply being a member of the Mafia is usually a crime, as society recognizes that the mere conspiracy to do evil is itself evil.
West's Encyclopedia of American Law, edition 2. Copyright 2008 The Gale Group, Inc. "Conspiracy is a crime separate from the criminal act for which it is developed. For example, one who conspires with another to commit Burglary and in fact commits the burglary can be charged with both conspiracy to commit burglary and burglary."
"The law seeks to punish conspiracy as a substantive crime separate from the intended crime because when two or more persons agree to commit a crime, the potential for criminal activity increases, and as a result, the danger to the public increases. Therefore, the very act of an agreement with criminal intent (along with an overt act, where required) is considered sufficiently dangerous to warrant charging conspiracy as an offense separate from the intended crime."
Wanting to "improve" the Mafia or make it more "efficient" is not just "a waste of time," it is also evil. If you witness Mafia acts of conspiracy or other crimes, you are either going to
  • oppose them
  • do nothing (and become a "guilty bystander")
  • or join their evil conspiracy.
Evil-doers tread lightly for fear of the good, but the evil are inspired when the good do nothing.

"The Government" is evil. Its core purposes are to do things which everyone agrees are evil when done by people who have no plausible claim of being "the Government." "The Government" seeks to increase the loyalty and dedication of its members to carrying out its evil purposes, cloaked in secrecy or propelled by outright deception. Every humane society is endangered by the mere existence of a conspiracy to "govern" others.

Wanting to "improve" the Government or make it more "efficient" is not just "a waste of time," it is also evil. It is a crime against humanity. It is the crime of conspiracy.

How To Become a Christian Anarchist

Ron Paul and Anarcho-Fundamentalism

Libertarian and Republican Party Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is coming out with a home school curriculum:

I haven't studied the curriculum thoroughly, but it appears to be very light on the Bible. (That is, I searched the whole site for the word "Bible" and got zero hits.) This inspired me to think about how Ron Paul should integrate the Bible into his curriculum, or perhaps how an entirely new Bible-based home school curriculum should be created.

Without a doubt, the Ron Paul Curriculum is designed to promote Liberty.

But if there is no Bible Course in the Ron Paul Curriculum, it really cannot equip students to promote liberty.

Contrary to the shrill hysteria of some lesbians and secular progressives, Ron Paul is not a Christian Fundamentalist.

And contrary to some "Christian Fundamentalists," a fundamentalist approach to the Bible provides a more radical defense of liberty than Ron Paul's secular, Bible-free approach.

Ron Paul's curriculum is generally based on the "Austrian School of Economics." But Ron Paul's curriculum is not radically based on "Austrian Economics." It is "middle-of-the-road" Austrian Economics. Radical Austrian economists are anarchists, or "anarcho-capitalists." Ron Paul and his curriculum are not.

I'd like to introduce you to what might be called "Anarcho-Fundamentalism."
