2001 05 20 Schools are one of society’s many methods of regulating information and governing the development of intelligence. Understand that a regulator — like a carburetor which mixes fuel with air, a choke which alters the mixture, a governor installed with the accelerator — can either enhance or limit performance: or rather enhances one type of performance at the expense of another. A free marketplace must be unregulated: no gate keeper! A regulated marketplace must take responsibility for its regulations. (In truth, we are responsible whether we take responsibility or not: whether or not there’s a God judging us. The truth is the truth whatever the politics, whatever lies whatever hierarchy tells.)
Regulated systems can move the goods;
regulated systems can siderail other goods.
Regulated systems control who and what gets moved,
who and what gets siderailed.
If there ever were such a thing as a society that wanted intelligent members (just after hell freezes), it would deregulate everything:
people want to learn, get out of their way
help but don’t show them how
Stand aside, watch: people will pay for what they want
(And if they don’t, fuck ’em.
The way I offered FLEX / FIX, it had to emerge: from the population. It didn’t. So the population, over-regulated, failed its own best chance of survival, of growth. (Such a population shouldn’t survive. Why should I save you? against the best interests of the total ecology?: which is obviously not interfering in human suicide. (Notice: God isn’t either.)
2013 03 31 A typo just lost some of my new text, there may be a senseless fragment somewhere, I solier on:
When I founded FLEX I didn’t distinguish “government” from “state”; now I do. Government is legitimate; state is not. If people agree to form a post office, or trash removal, that’s fine. If people are tired of dying from cholera and pool pennies to hire an investigator, good for them. The FLEX I offered was that kind of government. No coercion was involved. States however, however they are founded, soon adopt coercion: and become satanic.
