Bionic’s Hierarchy of Needs

January 5, 2017
Comments from two recent posts have me thinking….
From my post on the lack-of-real-discussion-or-presentation-about-Freedom Fest, from a thread begun by Michael Petrovich January 1, 2017 at 10:06 AM: there was some pushback about the number of speakers at this festival that are actually libertarian (I say the ratio of libertarians to something not-really-libertarian is rather small) – in other words, I shouldn’t make fun of this wanna-be Trekkie convention for finally admitting what they want to be: a Trekkie convention.
Also, from my post on the supposedly biggest winners and losers in the liberty movement for 2016, a comment from Unhappy Conservative (2.0) January 1, 2017 at 5:10 PM in which he challenges me on my view that I do not consider Alex Jones a libertarian.
It will go without saying that it is fundamental that one accepts the non-aggression principle; of course, I accept that application is difficult at times so we need not always agree on application. You will find that I can also find common ground with many who do not fully accept the NAP (frankly, I find many such people more agreeable than I find many libertarians); I just won’t call them “libertarian.”
The Base of the Pyramid: The “Deficiency” Needs
What do I view as the bare minimum requirement?
Identify the state as everywhere and always the enemy.
What do I mean by “the state”? An entity with a monopoly on defining law, establishing punishment, and responsibility for administration of these over a given geographic region; an entity with no limits on what it decides is or isn’t within their purview to control; in other words, virtually every “government” on earth today.
Now I know this excludes pretty much all of the mainstream libertarian organizations; I know this is too high a hurdle for most. I also know that I can found much common ground with individuals who do not feel the same way about the state as I do. But, hey…I can have non-libertarian compatriots, can’t I?
I recognize my basic requirement greatly limits my “libertarian” circle. While it is the base of my pyramid, I can accept that others accept a broader definition – call it minarchist or whatever. What I cannot accept as a libertarian is an acceptance, let alone silence, on each of the following:
Foreign wars and overseas adventurism
Central planning of money and credit
Government involvement in education
The first one inherently is the precise opposite of all things libertarian; in wars will be found every violation of the non-aggression principle. The second and third enable the entire apparatus of the state to function as it does; remove one or the other, and the entire structure as it exists today will come crashing down.
