Piracy in The Channel…so where does that leave Space?

If liberty and order can’t prevail in the English Channel, how can they prevail in space which is and will be  much, much more vital?

David Davis

Successive Tory governments GramscoFabiWeimarians, followed by New Labour GramscoFabiaNazis, none of which, functionally these days, are populated by persons who have served properly, hate the Armed Forces so much that we now have effectively none.

There will, sometime, come a next election that matters. In it, a Libertarian Government will be elected in an England which has left or will immediately leave the UK, as will be inevitable, and therefore also structurallywill leave or has left the EU also. The legalistic shenaniggans will be tremendously hilarious. We do not (as Hitler said infamously, or maybe it was Ludendorff in another war? Or perhaps it was Stalin?) “care nothing for treaties” – we will, as people who do agreement and not force, do our very best to console and satisfy every party who is properly  involved, as is right and proper.

At that point, the lack of methods available to deal with simple stuff like a gang of semi-armed-men riding a rubber-tyre, and then stealing a cargo ship in full daylight at pop-gun-point, will be felt. Whether “our” ship or somebody else’s, is immaterial. The point is that, owing to in-house-Fabianism, control of our near oceans will appear to have been lost.

Since shipping lines will all be private property again by then, this libertarian State will appear incapable of helping to protect such individual property rights. This will be embarrassing to say the least.

In the interim, a very very  strong blue-water-Navy, probably encompassing  fully the Air and Submarine  Arms as is natural, will be a Libertarian Priority. The logical conclusion, so long as GramscoFabiaNazis continue to either exist or be able to teach on this planet, will be an extension to space.

The weaponization of Space, will become necessary for Man’s survival in the Universe in future, in order that he will be able actually to get off here with some hope of establishment elsewhere. It will become therefore a battle against people like Rousseau, Lenin, Marx, Gramsci, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Sir Jonathon Porritt (who is old enough and ugly enough and educated enough to know better), Pol Pot, Mugabe, that bugger who did the Peru thingy, and the like.

A very, very poor, badly-written and also bad and pedestrian, SF novel about politics, about 16 years ago, was started by me then. Fortunately, all trace of  it was lost when that computer went awol, and the only “floppy” (remember those? it fitted puite well on one in MS-Word 2.0 along with lots of other gear) which I had saved was an oldish draft and also was, much later, found to be “corrupted”. In it, fleeing libertarians were forced to construct a ring of Orbital Forts round the Earth (guns facing downwards) after they had left for The Stars, with whatever people and remnants of the Western Canon and Culture thay could carry with them.

I continue to be convinced by those insights which came to me when I was thus younger.

Libertarians will find how many enemies they have, among the still non-disarmed governments of places where they have not electorally triumphed, and they will therefore experience problems, for many many I hope only) months – but let’s not bank on it. Praise the Lord, and keep your powder very very very dry.

Jerry Pournelle: can’t think why this guy is not on here!

David Davis

Good writer. So here he is. I must have been unconscious since I stopped reading Byte a number of years ago.

Here’s a post in the true mould of his slightly convoluted but (if you work at it) readable style, about “bail outs” and regulation by governments.

So here’s Keeley Hazell, to congratulate me on finding that Pournelle is still about:-


Earth: prison planet….(recommended idea)

David Davis

The Landed Underclass thinks we ought to get off, too. Or, do something radical and quick. But maybe it’s more realistic for a proportion of humans, even if small, to leave for “other shores”. After all, that’s what we did before.

I don’t go for conspiracy theories, or for “world government” conspiracy theories. I don’t think the Fabianazis, indisputably and irremediably evil, murdering and wicked though they are, are sufficiently well advanced in their plans yet to consider this matter, even if they thought they were even to mean it literally, which I doubt.

I don’t even believe in the (Bob the) “Builder Burgers“. These are a fiction. It is just rich and powerful guys who want to get together and have a drink and a sexy f***, with girls who are specifically not their wives (just look at the wives and see why) in some nice hotels near to some good sources of the  more pretty escort girls. Also if money is no object, so I guess the sex would be fairly OK. Why do you think that _”journal ists”_ are kept out? They fear the News of the World just as everyone does. (Tony, it’s your cue here to say if we are right or not.) But this planet may become too unpleasant for liberals, and in the not to distant future, mainly because we failed to see how serious the Enemy Class was, about reinstating slavery, feudalism, and pre-capitalist-neopastoralism, because it has so little imagination abour how it could survive in a real-world.

But the idea of confining, by orbital forts, the pre-capitalist population of bureaucrats – sadly plus those peoples who are too badly-armed or too sheeplike to oppose them – on Earth, while the rest of us leave, is an attractive one.
