Predator/State vs. Prey/Agorist

I read an interesting article on predator/prey relationships. The prey has *MUCH MORE* evolutionary pressure than the predator. The prey evolves faster than the predator.

This also applies to the State/agorist relationship. The relationship between the parasite class and the productive class resembles a predator/prey relationship. The parasites are under no pressure to improve, but the productive workers are under constant pressure. Eventually, the productive class improves its abilities so much that it can overthrow the parasite class. I'm seriously considering the possibility that humanity has split into two separate sub-species, the parasite class and the predator class. Is the parasite class an evolutionary dead end? When the State collapses, the members of the parasite class will be forced to adapt or die.

I wonder if, at some point in the past, humans were the prey in a predator/prey relationship. This evolutionary pressure caused humans to evolve intelligence. Centuries/millennia of pro-State brainwashing caused further natural selection in favor of intelligence. It requires a lot of intelligence to keep your contradictory beliefs straight!

Even if some agorists wind up busted by the State, that will only provide pressure for other agorists to refine their methods. Defending your property is much easier than stealing! Defense is easier than offense.

The agorists should be able to evade their pro-State zombie predators. The pro-State trolls have the advantage of numbers, but the agorists will have the advantage of superior flexibility and intelligence. An agorist will be encumbered by far fewer false beliefs than the Statist. If I set up an agorist trading group and others follow my example, then some groups should successfully evade detection by the State. It isn't feasible to crack down on them all simultaneously, once 1000+ people are involved. The Internet will allow word of a crackdown to spread rapidly, giving others a warning so they may improve their methods.

The relationship between the State and productive workers and the State resembles that of a predator/prey relationship. However, the wolf provides no illusion that he is looking out for the best interests of the deer. The State continues to exist because the productive workers have been conned into believing that the State is necessary.

I like to look at it like tank verses anti tank weapons. The predator is the anti tank weapon and the prey is the tank. New armor is much harder to design, costs more, and takes longer to develop.

A new anti armor missile costs much less to design and manufacture. In relation to defeating new armor technology.

Its much harder for the tank to stay ahead of the missile.

But at the same time, the tank that was once the prey, can turn the tables and become the predator in an instant..

This is nothing new. The only reason the productive are not in charge is that predators have subverted education, history and media to hide the fact we already have freedom and can easily deal with our predators, should the productive co-operate.

The "rule of law" is a precisely defined law. It is the highest law of mankind, stated below:

“the suppression of forceful and fraudulent methods of goal seeking”

“all are treated equally by the law”. This means ALL, including king and judges

“absolute property rights”

This in turn is based on the fact that human behavior (the topic of law) is about goal seeking. In the seeking of any goal, there are only three possible methods: force, fraud and honest trade. Any transaction that is not an honest, mutually agreed trade will cause a self-defensive response (conflict) from the victim whose survival has been affected.

"The Rule of Law" is the glue that keeps all of mankind acting together in common interest, tied together by mutual dependence of trade, on an evolutionary path to excellence. Force and fraud creates conflict and destroys civilizations. Mankind is now on a devolutionary path to extinction because the co-operation once forced by "the rule of law" has been replaced by legitimizing force and fraud for those who incorrectly believe they wield power.

i recently came upon a thought (follow the link to my blog post) that i later dismissed as utter misanthropism: humanity could be a virus, existing to further its own life cycle without regard for the welfare of its environment or other organisms. in a reader's comment, the notion of parasitic behaviour arose, which falls in line more so with your line of thinking. but i responded that 'environmentalists' could possibly be a mutation of the human virus.

i suppose my point is that it is very possible a subspecies may exist, but perhaps it is more of a thought-process or paradigm that causes the behaviour we're erroneously attributing to subspecies offshoots. the question remains, though: what brings about this parasitic paradigm? might it simply be the classic struggle between the proles and the bourgeois? how does one combat that without using the weapons of coercion? how do we convince a parasite that abandoning their coercive ways is preferable and more beneficial in the long term? that's a tough question, and i think the essence of the current struggle of humanity.

There's a book i think you would like: Political Ponerology by Polish psychologist Andrew Lobaczewski. Himself and other researchers stumbled upon humanity's natural predator while studying psychology in countries fallen victim to totalitarianism: Communist Poland and other eastern European countries behind the Iron Curtain.

They found that a statistically constant 6% of any given population are psychopaths - quite literally, a subspecies. The numbers involved are far higher than we've been led to believe, in part - as Lobaczewski points out - because psychopaths 'gravitate' towards power and positions of social influence. . . not least as educators and 'authorities' in the field of psychology!

The effect this subspecies has on the rest of the population varies in accordance with many factors. It's ultimately inevitable that all societies succumb to their pathological influence. Lobaczewski and co. examine the dynamic in terms of the development of disease: a body-politic becomes infected, undergoes stages of illness, then recovers as immunity is acquired.
