Terrorism in the United States

KKK PARADE IN TULSAI frequently say history for most Americans starts from the first day they were shocked and noticed some international event. Hardly any Americans know what happened in our nation prior to September 11, 2001. A significant number don’t even have a handle on that. There was a 100 year period when terrorism was a way of life here.

The following is a clip from Wikipedia. It matches other sources I have seen.

“3,959 black men, women, and children were lynched in the twelve Southern states between 1877 and 1950”

No guilt trip is required. There is not a soul alive today who had any part in this. If we held descendants of criminals responsible for what their ancestors did, we would have to go to places like Nigeria and find descendants of the folks who sold their prisoners of war as slaves to whoever would pay for them.


In the current time frame, we have unrestrained violence in Milwaukee. Is this not terrorism? Of course it is. The point in this is not to rationalize terrorism as a tool to for Muslims to use against United States citizens. I am bringing this up because most Americans know absolutely nothing about our history.  It is also silly to see these riots as being any kind of justified payback to the white race. What we all need to know is that terrorism is an extremely useful tool people use to get what they want. It works. The lynchings of blacks during the 19th and 20th century were extremely successful in accomplishing their intended purpose.

In 2008 we witnessed bloodless terrorism. It was financial terrorism. George Bush went on television and scared the holy hell out of the citizens so that he could get his TARP bill. Of course the TARP bill was sophisticated robbery. Since Americans know next to nothing about how government works most are clueless as to how much wealth and income this bill cost ordinary citizens. We may be the only nation in the world that actually celebrates ignorance. Folks this approach is going to be very costly.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
