RIP Terry Pratchett & "How Terry Pratchett Made Me a Libertarian"

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 23:28 +0000

Sir Terry Pratchett, fantasy author and creator of the Discworld series, has died aged 66, eight years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

"The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds," said Larry Finlay of his publishers Transworld.

The author died at home, surrounded by his family, "with his cat sleeping on his bed", he added.

Sir Terry wrote more than 70 books during his career and completed his final book last summer.

He "enriched the planet like few before him" and through Discworld satirised the world "with great skill, enormous humour and constant invention," said Mr Finlay.

"Terry faced his Alzheimer's disease (an 'embuggerance', as he called it) publicly and bravely," said Mr Finlay."Over the last few years, it was his writing that sustained him. His legacy will endure for decades to come."

Sir Terry leaves wife Lyn and daughter Rhianna.

The announcement of his death was made on Sir Terry's Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, with Rhianna later writing: "Many thanks for all the kind words about my dad. Those last few tweets were sent with shaking hands and tear-filled eyes."

How Terry Pratchett Made Me a Libertarian
The fantasy author whose Discworld novels talked up liberty and self-ownership has died at 66.

It may difficult to explain how remarkable Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel series is in the way it expressed concepts of liberty and self-determination to a libertarian who has never read him. Two of the protagonists in his fantasy universe were a police officer and a self-described "tyrant" ruling the city of Ankh-Morpork, an imaginary analogue of a Renaissance-era big city like London. That doesn't sound like the kind of people a libertarian would want to follow around through book after book. There's also an orangutan who is a librarian.

Rand is Right to Redraw Iraq Map.

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 23:10 +0000

Rand Paul is right to want to redraw the Iraq map. Not because I am a doe-eyed Rand fan. Not out of any secret Neocon conspiracy, but simply to right the wrongs of the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916, wherein the French and British had arbitrarily drawn the lines of newly-minted middle-eastern nations, paying no attention to long-standing ethnic and religious divisions that had been in place for centuries - and some for millenia. The Sykes-Picot Agreement ignored the existence of concentrated Kurdish and Turkmen majorities in areas of northern mesopotamia and southeastern Turkey ignored Shi'i majorities in southern mesopotamia, and druze majorities in areas of the Levant and transjordan, and propped up the puppet hashemite kindgdom of King Faisal (descendant of current Jordanian king). This was a recipe for disaster, and a powderkeg of ethnic and religious tensions, waiting to be lit - the product being perpetual war and profit by those who can step to the plate to arm or finance. The Balfour Declaration (established the state of Israel), in my opinion, was yet another chess-play by the banking elite, to have perpetual conflict and perpetual profit.

For Rand to step in and want to redraw the map, is to finally bring justice to many a people that had long been forgotten and stomped upon by foreign interests with no care for peace.

Where I have a problem, is using US taxpayer dollars to arm, fund, or otherwise support such a movement. We should simply support the redrawing in principle.

I Don't Know What's Best For You

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 18:09 +0000

What should you do? How should I know? How could I possibly know? I don't have your memories, your experiences, or your preferences. I don't know what you value now or what you will value in the future. I don't know what trajectory you are on or which trajectory will take you to a better place.

I can tell you what I would do in your situation. I can tell you what's important to me. This may help you in your situation. Comparing and contrasting can be quite helpful.

I can tell you the possible consequences of your actions. I can say "well, if you do this, then this might happen." I can warn you about the pitfalls of this or that, based on my experiences. However, you should not take my experiences as a reflection of what would happen if you did the same thing. As the saying goes: your mileage may vary (YMMV).

I can tell you what I would like you to do. You should always weigh this against my own interests. Will I feel genuine pleasure from seeing you succeed? Am I steering you toward my vision of the world? Do I want to reassure my own beliefs by spreading them onto others? Am I protecting my feelings?

Kentucky students get hard lesson in politics from lawmakers

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 17:22 +0000

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A group of bright-eyed, clean-cut high school students whose ideas of government were shaped by "Schoolhouse Rock" wrote a bill and watched it sail through the Kentucky state legislature this year in the type of feel-good story that had parents beaming.

But politics can ruin anything.

The bill would let high school students be appointed to committees that screen new school superintendents. But at the last moment, a Republican state senator pulled an old legislative trick, tacking a controversial amendment he wants passed to their widely supported bill. Then another added a contentious amendment of his own.

Liberty Rising: OK House Oks Bill Ending State Marriage Licenses!

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 16:50 +0000

“The point of my legislation is to take the state out of the process and leave marriage in the hands of the clergy,” said state Rep. Todd Russ, R-Cordell, the bill’s House author. “Marriage was historically a religious covenant first and a government-recognized contract second. Under my bill, the state is not allowing or disallowing same-sex marriage. It is simply leaving it up to the clergy.”

Uh oh... there's controversy...

Optical Illusions by Rob Gonsalves

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 15:07 +0000

Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves is a genius when it comes to optical illusions. His surreal paintings seem ordinary enough at first, but move your eyes across the frame and suddenly the scene is something completely different. What at first looks like an aqueduct over a river gradually shape shifts into a line of massive ships sailing across the sea.

Some of my favorites:

Rand Paul, Longtime Foe Of Nation Building, Is Ready Now To Redraw The Middle East

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 14:58 +0000

" "Nation-builder" probably isn't a term Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) would use to describe himself. The libertarian-leaning senator has built a reputation on his reluctance to intervene abroad, a point he emphasizes as he travels the country ahead of a likely White House bid in 2016.

But on Wednesday, two weeks after telling a crowd of conservatives that Republicans should give up the concept of nation building abroad, Paul called on the United States to ship arms to the Kurds with a promise to build them a nation: Kurdistan."

“Part of the problem is the Kurds aren’t getting enough arms,” Paul told Breitbart News. “The Kurds are the best fighters. The arms are going through Baghdad to get to the Kurds and they’re being siphoned off and they’re not getting what they need. I think any arms coming from us or coming from any European countries ought to go directly to the Kurds.”

He then endorsed redrawing the borders of Iraq and Syria to form a new country, exposing as he did the gaps in his understanding of the region.

Michigan is First to Get Statewide Approval for Police Drones
By Carl Engelking | March 11, 2015 4:05 pm

After getting authorization from from the Federal Aviation Administration, the Michigan State Police represents the first law enforcement agency in the United States that can use drones in every corner of the state.

Officers can now deploy surveillance drones to assist with operations at the scene of major accidents and other crimes. The State Police earned the approval Feb. 25 after FAA officials visited Michigan earlier that month to review the program and its safety procedures.

Iran Calls GOP Letter 'Propaganda Ploy,' Offers To 'Enlighten' Authors

Daily Paul - Thu, 2015-03-12 02:10 +0000

MARCH 10, 2015

Republican senators' letter to Iran about ongoing nuclear talks has prompted a lengthy response from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who delivered an overview of international law as he critiqued the letter.

Zarif said he was astonished by the letter, saying it suggests the U.S. lawmakers "not only do not understand international law" — a subject in which he is a professor — "but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy," according to Iran's Foreign Ministry.

The Iranian minister said that "in our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy."

His response (we have more of it below) came after it was announced Monday that 47 Senate Republicans who oppose a potential deal with Iran over its nuclear program had signed a letter to the country's leaders.
