I AM PUTTING MY REPLY TO MASTER JACK BELOW HERE TOO

I recall you labelled DiLorenzo this the last time we had an exchange which was on Lincoln--these ad hominem attacks it seems are typical of you. Your shoddy thinking continues with the belief that the assassination of Lincoln led to the centralization of government power when in fact, as DiLorenzo and many other non-Lincoln cult members have proven, Lincoln was one of the most dictatorial and centralizing of power of all the presidents.

It appears you have swallowed Matt Erhet’s narrative that classical liberals and modern libertarians like the Mises Institute are the “enemy of individual liberty” while the “liberators” of Mankind are Mao and Xi Jinping. YES, SERIOUSLY, READ HERE.

And I think your description of “They promote garbage historical narratives for the monarchy” is true of these two except for changing that last word to “the Chinese Communist Party” based on Marxism.

TAKEN FROM THE ABOVE URL:

Matt Ehret: “Welcome to a Canadian Patriot (the Canadian patriot – A Sovereign Voice in a Chorus of Nations) special podcast here where I’m very, very pleased to be joined by my good friends Jeff J. Brown and Dr. Quan Le.

And so the last thing I’ll say, Jeff, for people who want to read your books, I would suggest the BIG Red Book on China by Jeff J. Brown is easily findable. Do a Google search, buy it, read it to essential reading to put meat on the bones to a lot of the claims Jeff said, and honestly try to prove him wrong. If you, if you’re, I can imagine a lot of people are probably pissed off by some of what was said today. That’s a natural thing. Prove it wrong. Go to the evidence that Jeff is presenting.”

Here is some of Jeff’s “evidence” from his book, direct quotes. I wonder if you think you could prove it wrong as I definitely think I can.

BIG RED BOOK on CHINA—Chinese History, Culture and Revolution

“China’s constitutional preamble is already being looked upon around the world, by countries wanting to exert more independence from empire, as a towering Anti-West equivalent. At only about 1,000 words, it is direct and to the point. It sets the stage throughout the rest of the document as a nonstop, revolutionary litany for socialism and communism, to be lived by and aspired to, in all aspects and phases of modern China’s development, economy, governance and society.

“Lines 14-29 are the history of liberated China, from 1949 to then 1982, when this version of the constitution was written. A socialist society was created. The socialist transformation of the private ownership of the means of production means that every square millimeter of the country’s territory was nationalized, which is still true today. ALL REAL ESTATE IS OWNED BY THE PEOPLE. THE EXPLOITATION OF MAN BY MAN BEING ELIMINATED, MEANS THE END OF CAPITALISM ON CHINESE SOIL.” [my emphasis]

“The people’s democratic dictatorship is defined in Lines 17- 18 and is a defiant alternative to the West’s pluralistic version. CHINA DEMOCRATIC DICTATORSHIP MEANS THAT THE CPC IS AUTHORIZED BY THE MASSES TO USE EXECUTIVE POWERS TO VANQUISH ANY ANTI-REVOLUTIONARY IMPERIALISTS AND HEGEMONISTS (WESTERNERS) AND FIGHT THE EXPLOITING CLASSES (MEANING CAPITALISTS), [my emphasis] both inside China (fifth column compradors) and outside China (Western empire), who are all trying to overthrow the CPC (via Western international institutions, NGOs and internal and external

psyops/black ops subversion).”

So there is the “evidence” that Matt Ehret and Jeff Brown are absolute “TRUE BELIEVERS” to a ludicrous degree.

Matt do you ACTUALLY BELIEVE THESE WORDS of Jeff’s?

You, Matt, have seemingly been against “Covid1984” but obviously if Jeff is your “good friend” and you recommend his book, then you must know about his stance on the recent Chinese tyrannical lockdowns which he APPROVED OF? DID YOU TOO?

“Special Explanation To Address The Many Concerns Global Citizens Have About China’s “Zero-Covid” Policy, With Shanghai Now In The Headlines. China Rising Radio Sinoland 2022-04-09

“There is a lot of disbelief, scorn and laughs in the West’s mainstream media – what I call the Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM) – CONCERNING CHINA’S DRACONIAN “ZERO-COVID” POLICY. YES, DRACONIAN, BUT FULLY JUSTIFIED, AS I WILL EXPLAIN.” [my emphasis]

Yes, go there and read his fully justified explanation.

ALL YOU IN THE HEALTH AND FREEDOM MOVEMENT WHY ARE YOU NOT QUESTIONING MATT EHRET ABOUT HIS TRUE BELIEVERSHIP IN THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY ALONG WITH JEFF BROWN INCLUDING THE RECENT CHINESE COVID1984 TOTALITARIAN LOCKDOWNS INCLUDING WELDED SHUT APARTMENT DOORS AND FORCED CONTAINMENT CAMPS?

By the way, having lived in China, 2003 to 2015, I never noticed the real estate was owned by everyone (whatever that could possible mean?) and no one exploited another.

I do NOT follow the U.S. Government’s, embedded in the District of Criminals, neo-conarritive (sick), as Ehret puts it: It’s the big bad Chinese”. NOR, do I believe in the Bowdlerization and DisneyWorld makeover of Mao and his latest incarnation via Technocracy of Xi Jinping and the CCP (Chinese Criminal Party) as being the Saviors of The People’s Democratic Dictatorship of Humanity.

Responsibly Free individuals, ask yourselves, if Matthew Ehret and Jeff Brown not only condone but promote Mao and his legacy of the CCP to date for whatever, tortured, ideological Gordian Knot reasons, WHY SHOULD YOU NOT CRITICISE THEM AND HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT FOR THEIR BACKING OF CCP MURDEROUS TYRANNY IN THE PAST AND NOW?

Well, genuflecting to the dictatorial Trio of 4F (heavy irony here) FDR, Saint Lincoln and Liberator Mao was not enough for your immoral Caged Chicken version of the Farm of Statism, now you are singing the praises of the Fondling (sic-k) Fathers who could not keep their hands off the financial levers of power (Hamilton) nor their fingers off the War Triggers (Adams, Madison).

Quite a feat for a person who seems to be on the side of responsible freedom when it comes to the Global Predators depopulation agenda.

How do you square the circle of praising dictators and seeming to be for freedom?

“He that is not aware of his ignorance, will be only misled by his knowledge.” Richard Whately

I know you are well read in your area of conservative Statism but perhaps you will read more libertarian and even voluntaryist materials? Here are a few that do not praise the above dictators as you do.

As an equal opportunity offender, I am against all Statists Dictators, would be legitimated Rulers for the Greater Good, be they Hamilton, Monroe, Lincoln, Teddy, FDR, Stalin, Mao, Putin, Trump, Biden, et. al.

Eat All they did, and continue to, of whom remain on the Farm.

For you to pick and choose Dictators to defend and manage your version of the Farm is hypocritically immoral.
