I Will Never Call the Police

by Silver at The Mental Militia Forums (quoted with his permission)

I will never call the police. I have in the distant past, but never again.

There are multiple reasons.

1) Never talk to police. Period. Not. One. Word. You have the right to remain silent - use it. They should think you are mute or don't speak English when they let you go. If you don't talk to them, then you can't call them.

2) The police cannot defend you. You must defend yourself. Police arrive after the crime, generally long after.

3) I have renounced the use of violence to get what I want. The police are the state's agents of violence. Calling the police is initiating aggression against another person. If that other person is threatening or attacking you, defend yourself. If they are not threatening or attacking you, don't initiate violence against them by calling the police.

4) Police are criminals, hypocrites, bullies, and cowards. All of them, without exception. Every cop, without exception, is paid with stolen money. Every cop will happily assault and kidnap a mundane who knowingly receives stolen money, but they do it themselves all day, every day. No honest person consorts with or utilizes such vile criminals.

5) Police are above the law. They are free to assault, rob, kidnap, torture, and summarily execute anyone, for any reason, or no reason at all. They face essentially zero chance of any consequence more severe than a paid vacation. Calling them places you, your family, your pets, your friends, your neighbors, and completely innocent passerby in mortal danger.

A free society does not have police. A free man does not call police. I will never pass the chance to mock, ridicule, insult, denigrate, and delegitimize any cop, all cops, and the very idea of police. Police are a stupid government idea that like all such ideas do not produce what was promised, but grow like a cancer anyway. It will be a far better word when people point and laugh at the pathetic doughnut burners in their silly costumes instead of watching their entirely fictional heroism on MSM.

Calling police is an act of aggression and cowardice. Free men don't indulge in these behaviors. I was taught differently, but I was taught wrong. Now I've grown up and know better. I will never, ever, call the police.

Announcing the Great
Loompanics Unlimited
Going Out of Business Sale

As our drama opens Loompanics President Mike Hoy is having a conversation with Miss Demeanor, the office cat...

"I hoped this day would never come, Missy, but we are going to have to close down Loompanics!!"


"Well, sales have been steadily falling for several years, and we just can't keep the place going any longer!"


"Besides, I'm actually in my sixties now, and it's time for me to try my hand at something else!"


"While it's a sad day for us here, it means GOOD NEWS for our customers!! .. In order to clear out our inventory, we are offering everything we have for 50% off!!"

"This short sampler contains all the titles that we have added since our 2005 Main Catalog came out! For complete list of everything we have for sale, check out our website at, or you can still get a 2005 Main Catalog from us for $5.00!"


"Oh, you and me are still going to be together, Miss Demeanor, irregardless!"


"I recommend our readers use this opportunity to try something new..."

"... Try some drug books, some alternative housing books, conspiracy books, sex books--see where something new will lead you!"

"Owning Loompanics has been the biggest thrill of my life--for 30 years I got to live my dream (and stick it to the man!). I want to thank everyone who made it possible! Our customers, authors, artists, reviewers, interviewers, vendors, and most of all, the super efficient Loompanics staff...

...And everyone who made it necessary! All the censors, prudes, prigs and pigs in the world, especially in the U.S.A..."

"Well, Miss Demeanor, it's time for you and me to waddle of into the sunset!"

Man pitches pixels, makes a million

Alex Tewe made a web page with 1,000,000 blank pixels. Then he put them up for sale for a dollar apiece. He sold them all. Unfortunately, loaded too slowly for me to wait for the entire grid. It seems that Mr. Tewe needs faster hosting. [root]
