Additionally from an earlier post:
When Negative Facts from American History are Brought Up, This Must Now be Interpreted Also in a New Way
Whatever happened in the faraway past, all of us still owe loyalty to fellow citizens over against the foreigner. Events from far back are brought up so as to cause this loyalty to break down. It is often done this way, not only relative to foreigners, but also relative to the net taxpayer versus those on net public subsidy here, citizens or otherwise. When a journalist, professor or official brings up some lynching from 100 years ago, apropo of absolutely nothing, the first question must now be what loyalty is he trying to release himself or others from, by mentioning some remote incidents?

The left especially, is not about to acknowledge any such rights, since that would mean giving up their best rhetorical trick. The way it works, is to choose issues so as to allow for attempted smearing of opponents, as being motivated solely by hatred against some group which is easy to hate or look down on. If, after more than forty years of this, the right still does not know that it is then necessary to point out that attempted smearing is being used, in the place of a rational argument, that same smearing method will be used over and over.

Voltaire's Definition of Liberty as: 'Only the Power of Acting' is Self-Contradictory and Subservient to Aggression
Added 7-9-08 Comparing American 18th century founding ideas:
How Did America Come To Have So Much More Freedom From Official Aggression?
This was the one country where the very smartest people believed, and would even conspire to establish it as the basic law that:"all men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree", as said James Madison July 11, 1787. Elsewhere and later, the idea was that power could be entrusted, if one had the brightest urging the theory that needed only to be forced one time. The founders here did not value openness to the gratification of power-greed, but were at pains to close openings by which it might enter.

With Regard to Loyalty Such as May be Commanded, Civilization is Lacking in Attributes of Sovereignty, Except...
Mindful of the experience of Holland and Belgium where refugees had choked the roads and prevented their own forces from engaging the enemy, the advice was to stay put until told to evacuate an area.(11) Sonia Tomara, New York Tribune (14th June, 1940):
Refugees blocked the road by trying to get past the main line of cars, thus interfering with oncoming traffic.[...] We saw thousands of cars by the roadsides, without gasoline or broken down.[...] After three nights and two days we had made only seventy miles.
Fleeing Hitler: France 1940by Hanna Diamond -four million refugees joined nearly two million Belgians and 150,000 Dutch and Luxembourgeois who had been in flight since the Germans’ first attack, on May 10. //www.memorial-quineville.com/quineville-gb.asp:
there are soon up to 8 millions civilians on the roads of France, which is not without bothering the French – British military manoeuvres.
//www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/UN/UK/UK-NWE-Flanders/UK-NWE-Flanders-3.html The 5th Division in G.H.Q. reserves was moving up to the Senne, having now to stem an almost overwhelming stream of refugees flooding westwards.Streams of refugees added greatly to the danger and difficult of their task, making it impossible to close road blocks or prevent espionage. It was doubtless the difficulty of maintaining communications and control which led General Beauman to issue instructions that troops would hold on 'as long as any hope of successful resistance remained' and that 'Brigade commanders will use their discretion as regards withdrawal' which was to be 'to and across the Seine'....the Béthune behind them. Withdrawal began during the night and, although greatly hampered and considerably delayed by congestion of refugee and other traffic on the roads, was duly completed." Axis History Forum Index » The Allies & the Neutral States » The Belgian's fought bravely ( May 1940): " more than one million Belgians (most of them on foot, as cars and horses had been requisitioned by the different armies) had become refugees. News of what happened at Vinkt would cause an additional one million to flee south or even west. By the middle of June, according to Red Cross figures, 30% of the Belgian population had left the country.
Arriving near the bridge on May 25, the German 225th Division, consisting mostly of badly trained soldiers from the Hamburg area, found it impossible to cross. They then took 140 civilians hostage and used them as human shields. "The Campaign of the Belgian army in May 1940:For several divisions it meant a retreat of 100 km, which had to be done on bad roads, clogged with refugees, which were their compatriots and who they couldn’t ask to free the roads. As the Belgian army had to take secondary roads, huge traffic jams were the result. At several places it took 24 hours to cover 20km.During the night of the 17th /18th of May all eight divisions on the frontline dislodged and started their retreat. From Blitzkrieg1940-http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/blitzkrieg.htm "May 10, the Germans unleashed their Blitzkrieg against the Netherlands and Belgium. The attack sent the defending troops reeling. The roads overflowed with refugees fleeing the front. French and British troops rushing to the rescue were caught in the headlong retreat" "The High Command is mostly in a state of confusion, and civilian refugees are blocking up the roads. The whole plan rests on the strength of the Gembloux position and the ability of the Belgian Army to delay the enemy. Neither has turned out as expected. If they act without delay before this evening, they can still prevent the Dyle plan from being carried out and adopt the Escaut Plan. Only the First Army’s three divisions of motorised infantry are on the move, the rest of the infantry has not yet crossed the frontier. They can still be held back," wrote General Prioux.
At 10 pm Billotte countermands Prioux and insists they stick with the Dyle Plan."12 million people - fleeing soldiers and terrified civilian refugees - are crowding roads out of every city in the north as Panzers race across France and panic grips the country. In Nancy, students working in bomb-proof cellars at the university are being snatched from their end of term exams by worried parents to join the chaotic stream heading west and south - in any direction away from the Germans. The town council has ordered the evacuation of the city, unaware that the enemy is relying on confusion and blocked roads to prevent the French army from re-grouping.

[http://www.usna.org/plebecorner.html] This kind of increase requires deliberate numerical preferences, involving a randomization of the information provided on merit considerations, substituting racial/ethnic ones. That this is done during time of war, surely deserves to be called a betrayal.

From another post: Putnam's Findings That Increasing Diversity Elevates Suspicion, and Tends to Destroy Participatory Democracy...
...May the government still be allowed to get away with decreeing that increasing diversity is a compelling state interest? Do the federal courts have the brazen effrontery to believe that they might just establish pro-diversity as a compelling interest, when this would clearly mean a state interest in increasing division, suspicion, civic disengagement and other dysfunctions of society?

Openness to Terrorists as a Value to be Sought by the Powerful and Power-Greedy Sounds Improbable? What Have We Here Then?
"Here are the Frequently Asked Questions and answers for the dangerous and defeatist Democratic Iraqi refugee bill in the House - H.R. 2265 (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:h2265:) (S. 1651), with Kyle Shideler’s more detailed analysis here. It’s being sold as a way to get at-risk Iraqi employees - Iraqi translators, contractors, spouses and kids - into the U.S. as “special immigrants.” But the reality is that the bill seriously undermines provisions in US immigration law, opening immigration to those identified as terrorists or supporters of terrorist groups." [It is hard to see how this proposed legislation could be surpassed for malicious, disloyal and treasonable qualities in the history of our nation]

Mental Infectious Agents & The Valuing Of Openness to Parasitical Lineages Will Preferentially Aggrandize Them
Added 6-26-08 from: For Each Increment of Mobility of Net-Consumers, What is to be Expected?
Increasing the mobility of net consumers should be expected to also increase the damage that they do, preferentially selecting for damage-inflicting types. When their mobility is more constrained, they are that much more likely to have to live with the nest that they have fouled.

Mental Infectious Agents, Openness-Value and the Fundaments of Memeology and the Spread of Evils
A purely mental 'infectious agent' is postulated to have to follow laws of nature in the same way as a biological infectious agent. Following Ockham, the simplest account is given precedence. The infectious agent needs you to be open to it just one time, and thereafter to try to command others to be open to it, or to value openness in general. This will then be the irreducible minimum form of the message of an infectious agent; try to command others to be open. Realizing this, one can evaluate anew the call to have entire societies value openness; isn't this what a mental or biological infectious agent would have to order, just to get itself transmitted and nothing else?
From Monday, August 6, 2007Insofar as an Infectious Agent is Damaging or Lethal Its Interest is Served by Getting its Carriers or Vectors to Command Openness on Others......or not? What are the chances that professionals in the relevant fields will mention this, and are they even less likely to do so in a country with many immigrants? Are the chances of the above being spoken of by such professionals even lower, in proportion as there is allowance of mass immigration from tropical pestholes?

A Gifted & Witty Reactionary Conjures With The Nature Of Mental Infectious Agents
Mencius says, in OLXI: the truth about left and right : "...it would choose the smart hosts over the less-smart ones. If you're a sexually transmitted virus, you want to be in a promiscuous gay host, preferably an airline steward. If you're an intellectually transmitted principle, you want to be in a smart and loquacious host, preferably a university professor. We expect to see some corollaries of this Q-M asymmetry, and we do. If smart people are more likely to host Q, we'd expect Q to be more fashionable than M. If you want to get ahead in life, acting smart is always a good start - whether you're smart or not. If smart people tend to host Q, hosting Q is a great way to look smart. Q becomes a kind of social lubricant. Anywhere, any time, the best way to meet and mate with other young, fashionable people is to broadcast one's Q-ness as loudly and proudly as possible. Also, if Q is more competitive than M, we'd expect to see Q progressing against M over time. Again, this is exactly what we see. The M-Q conflict is at least a hundred years old, and when we exhume the frozen thoughts of century-old Q-ists from dusty old libraries, their specific beliefs would put them deep in the M range - often at extreme M levels - if they lived today. But does any of this answer the question? It does not. At least one of Q or M is darkness. But we cannot tell which [according to his story-premise]. If Q is the dark side and M is mere sanity, we see immediately what Q is: a transmissible mental disease, which spreads by infecting education workers. If Q is mere sanity and M is the dark side, this same system is in the business of overcoming superstition..."JB comments: Although I don't suscribe to the dilemmas as stated, and intellectual fashion seems over-emphasized, this is still a fascinating exercise in contemplating the requirements of mental infectious agents.Q may possibly be the initial of a 'Quakerism' with horns and blood on its hands, and M may be a 'Militarism' with a sound mind and truth on its side; those are guesses...

Valuing Openness to Diversity of Standards Means Preferentially Pushing Towards Ever Lower Standards
Valuing Openness To Globalization Of Minimum Standards Is Not Known To Be Good
It would close off the possibilities of raising or maintaining minimum standards, such as are high above global norms. Therefore valuing openness in that more globalized sense, reduces to a contradiction-in-terms: valuing more openness and closing-off possibilities at the same time, and in regard to the same attributes, is self-contradictory
