Have You Declared YOUR Independence?

Frankly, I don’t care much about July 4th celebrations; because I don’t think many people have the slightest clue about what it’s about.

Clue: It’s about telling government to go get fucked.

And the whole weepy "Land of the Free" shtick? Ha! Don’t even get me started.

Accordingly, I’ve never seen it recognized or celebrated in any way resembling how it ought to be recognized and celebrated. No idea what the actual number of people there are who’ve actually read The Declaration of Independence (I did, just now, for the several hundredth time in my life), much less understood it, but it has to be a very small number.

So there’s my middle-finger, "Independence Day" message for ya. I rather think it’s become a cruel joke. Sorry.

But hey, let’s have some fun. Turns out that while Googling for something that might be interesting on this topic a GoTOQuiz that I put together a number of years ago came up. I’d forgotten about it, but apparently still remember all but one of the "correct answers." 

You are 98% Individualist

 

You’re an individualist through and through. The bedrock of civilization. If you scored less than 100%, then it can probably be accounted for by shortcomings in the quiz itself. Your individualism is heart and mind, integrated into an uncompromising whole. You are to be congratulated on your ability to see through feeling and tough issues, abandoning "easy solutions" through theft and aggression. You are part of the hope for civilization, as civilization was built upon people such as yourself. You power is such that civilization marches onward in spite of every effort to tear it down by collectivists and communists, or to suck it dry by socialists and fascists.

Are You an Individualist?
Take More Quizzes

Go ahead and take it if you dare. As I recall I think it’s pretty brutal if you don’t score high. Oh well, I guess. I am giving you fair warning.

    Richard,
    Good meeting you at the Paleo Meetup on June 19th. I’ll gladly take the test. Been doing a lot of self-assessment lately.

  2. Organism as a Whole on July 4, 2010 at 12:19

    I like this quote:

    “If you scored less than 100%, then it can probably be accounted for by shortcomings in the quiz itself.”

    This is the only test I know of which mentions the possibility for being biased.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 4, 2010 at 12:22

      Oh, it’s definitely biased, alright. No doubt about it.



  3. Suzan on July 4, 2010 at 12:43

    Your post today is spot on. Thank you.

  4. Liberty & Flour on July 4, 2010 at 13:21

    Great post. The celebration of traditional American values has largely been co-opted and replaced with the celebration of modern American nationalism. I’ll be spending the day with sympathetic friends and avoiding turning on the TV at all costs.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:07

      Lib and flour:

      Precisely. This is not Independence Day or anything like it.

      It’s Nationalism Day. We’re Europeans, now.



  5. Matt on July 4, 2010 at 16:24

    Hi Richard, I just took your test, scored a 72%. What are your issues with the US constitution? I’m not trying to be belligerent, but asking out of sheer curiosity.

    • Jeff on July 6, 2010 at 13:20

      Richard- Thanks for the information you provide on the paleo diet/lifestyle- this reference to Lysander Spooner is just icing on the (no carb)cake. I never believed in any implied “social contract.” You can’t contract for future generations.



  6. Paul Verizzo on July 4, 2010 at 18:32

    I hear Somalia is nice this time of year. A Libertarian/Warlord paradise.

    If you think government is so bad, try a society without it.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:01

      Oh, and Paul, maybe check this out.



    • Sean on July 5, 2010 at 03:12

      LIbertarians believe that the rule of law is important, the most important thing for a country. Take a look at Transperency International rankings and GDP, very high correlation. Take a look at free market rankings of countries and GDP, again, a very high correlation. People perpetuating this idiotic canard that Somalia is a libertarian paradise and economic ignorance, highest correlation of all.



    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:03

      Sean, just so we’re clear, I don’t believe in “rule.” Of law, or otherwise.



    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 08:58

      First you need a new gimmick, Paul. It’s not the Somalia of 1992, anymore. Check it out.

      Other than than, I didn’t expect to see the Spiro Agnew schtick quite this soon. Like you own the place, Eh?



    • jon w on July 6, 2010 at 15:06

      check it out:

      And, about a week ago heard this story from a journalist who works often in Somalia (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128222247&ft=1&f=1022). A country where you need to hire 20 gunmen just to feel secure.

      I believe the government’s health advice is killing people. I get the idea that “taxation” is theft. I love the idea of telling the government to get fucked. But I’m experiencing some cognitive dissonance.

      Places without strong governments tend to be overrun by somebody whos more organized or more violent or both, either internally (Somalia, Colombia) or externally (Kingdom of Hawaii, A). I get your libertarian argument that places with strong governments are just controlled by bad guys in a different, more orderly way so people are more likely to accept their status as slaves. I would love to have less taxes and less rules. But I have trouble thinking of any place where this has worked, and so have trouble believing that it WOULD work at all.

      What are the best libertarian arguments on this subject? Give me any reference and I’ll look into it. As far as I can see, you are reasoning like this: a place like Somalia isn’t really that bad. Sure chaos and violence is unpleasant but probably exaggerated, but they would be worse off under the slavery of a government. (and, corresponding with that: life in the US is good, but would be even better with no government).



    • Richard Nikoley on July 6, 2010 at 15:27

      “What are the best libertarian arguments on this subject?”

      I almost never use them as they are principally unsound; collectivism that “works.”

      For whom?

      I simply demand to be left alone and I’ll take my chances. Everyone is free to pursue having everyone pay for everyone else but I want no part of it. It’s just that simple.



    • jon w on July 6, 2010 at 18:49

      Richard, that’s a non-answer. It’s your blog and you can write what you want, but there’s no sense in refusing to discuss your views. I scored 93% on the test. I’d say we share some common ground at the gut level. But I’m interested in what works as well. I’m genuinely curious here, about what is possible and consequences in the real world. Maybe I can rephrase the question. What would be the result if more people exercised the same point of view as you? (or do you just want to enjoy living as a free rider) Why would that be a good thing? A more just world, less evil, less slavery, something like that? How do you get a typical American (or anyone) to even begin to consider it beyond the fantasy level? I understand what you are saying, I’m asking why.

      cheers



    • Richard Nikoley on July 7, 2010 at 09:20

      “Richard, that’s a non-answer.”

      True. There’s no possible way I can tell you what would “work,” because I don’t believe in imposing anything on anyone by force, regardless of how well it would work or not.

      I operate on principle. Even if being free was the worst idea possible (I don’t believe it is) I would still advocate it over force.

      I long, long ago got over the need to explain how freedom would “work” better than slavery. I’m not a utilitarian by any stretch, as are many libertarians who argue for market solutions because they will work better. I don’t care whether they do or not.

      I simply demand to be left alone, completely alone and I’ll take my chances with whatever comes.



    • Richard Nikoley on July 7, 2010 at 09:31

      To put it another way, jon w, of course I think freedom would result in better outcomes for more people, but I don’t believe that should be any condition on whether humans ought to be free or not. They ought to be free simply because that’s their natural right.



  7. Chaohinon on July 4, 2010 at 21:05

    “No flag is large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.” – Howard Zinn

    • AJP on July 4, 2010 at 22:23

      While this is a great post by Richard, this Zinn quote is just childish University dribble.

      Every political structure has made their foundations on the loss of innocent life.
      The difference is that some attempt amends for those killings with the blood soaked freedom to openly say what idealist professors like Zinn say. I’m all for Zinn saying it, at the same time all for thinking he is another academic coward.

      As a side, my wife works in the communication industry and deals with the government very closely and is very clear that this current administration is quickly behind the scenes tightening its grip around the Internets throat.
      Deals are being made and soon your ability to freely speak your mind in a post like this will be terminated.



    • AJP on July 4, 2010 at 22:34

      And before I get flamed, I know Zinn fought in WW2.
      I was heavily brainwashed with his bio and philosophy in college.
      Brainwashing, what else is college for anymore?



    • Sean on July 5, 2010 at 05:08

      Quoting politically correct, socialist revisionist historians (or anyone else) is no substitute for thinking for oneself.

  10. Scott on July 4, 2010 at 22:42

    Richard,
    Love the site. Especially the views on politics (Ok and the food porn…smile). Made me pull out a book that my grandfather gave me with a personal note from the author, “Love of Country Prevails”. It was published by a local bookstore in 1976 to celebrate the nation’s 200th b-day. Looks like it is out of print, I read it often and contemplate what is going on in this country. Starts with Gettysburg address in Foreward then to DofI, Constitution, Washington’s Farewell Address and then the Political Faith of our Fathers. You might not appreciate the Political Faith of our Fathers (a view of Benjamin Franklin Crawford, the author) – but the rest is beautiful. “When in the course of human events, it become necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth……” How can you not love this?

    Scott

    Hope you make #300 deadlift soon.

    Only scored 76% on the test – need to revisit some of my views!

    Scott

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:11

      Scott, 76 is a good score. Usually that’ a result of some allegiance to the US Constitutuin which I don’t share with some other libs.



  11. Nico on July 5, 2010 at 02:14

    I know it’s just for fun, but the test seems to conflate individualism and hard-core libertarianism. I think it’s totally coherent to be philosophically indivualist but be more modest in your political views. I used to be such a libertarian, but I now try to be a bit more epistemelogically modest in my approach.

    I do give them a lot of credit for the “If you scored less than 100%, then it can probably be accounted for by shortcomings in the quiz itself.”There’s a good bit of modesty.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:14

      Nico, I simply think it’s inconsistent to proclaim individualism on one hand and on the other, that all human animals as a condition of birth on American soil are somehow bound to a Constitution written hundreds of years ago.

      Or any other laws, for that matter.

      I am individualist to the core. Nobody has any claim on me whatsoever.



    • Nico on July 5, 2010 at 16:38

      I’m with you that people should blindly follow laws, and I agree with Thoreau that we have a duty to break unjust laws. But it may just be inescapable that there will be some kind of government, and if that’s true we’re going to need some kind of law. That doesn’t mean “that all human animals as a condition of birth on American soil are somehow bound to a Constitution written hundreds of years ago”.
      But hey, I’m open to better alternatives, and I’m certainly on board for abolishing the FDA along with many other government agencies. All I’m saying is that we ought to be open to looking carefully at institutions and realize the limitations of our knowledge. This, to me, is also individualistic.



  12. Jeff on July 5, 2010 at 06:09

    So I took your “test” and scored a 16. Of course the “comment” at the end was a simple and lazy insult. I don’t agree with everything you’ve posted on your blog, but I’ve never felt it necessary to insult you over it. Thank God (or god) or whatever we aren’t all alike….what a boring world it would be, but insulting another because they are different in their thinking than you are is a little over the line. BTW, I’m older than you so I have a little more life experience than you and I even understand were you are coming from. Life has a way of changing people’s minds.

    Good luck with your growth.

    Jeff

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:16

      I warned you, Jeff.

      But thanks for the wishes. I will pursue.



  13. Jeanne Shepard on July 5, 2010 at 06:57

    As with everything, it depends on who defines the terms, including “individualist.”

  14. Mike K on July 5, 2010 at 08:34

    You are 100% Individualist.
    In 100 years I will never understand my career choices in light of my personal credo. One more year and I am changing careers. Your website is very helpful in my quest to marry my individualist beliefs with my food intake. I think the paleo/primal lifestyle attracts those of us who distrust the hot air machine in DC. As for freedom, it has been dead for over a century in this country and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to study our history. I read the DoI and try to reconcile it with our actions as a country and I am at a loss. Thanks again for your website. Fight the power.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:18

      A 100, Mike?

      Let me know if you’re ever around the SF Bay Area. I’ll buy you a beer or two, or whatever is your preference.



    • Mike K on July 6, 2010 at 06:03

      Stout, the only grain I ingest. 🙂



  15. Uwe on July 5, 2010 at 08:49

    I think if you know ahead of time what the test is for you will check the questions that will result in the outcome that you desire. I think it would work if the question were imbedded in a more generalized survey.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 09:22

      Uwe, there are actually quite a few trick questions such that your standard anti-big gov Republican will do decently but won’t get near 100 (50ish, probably) and your rule of law libertarian will get in the 70s. It pretty much takes a market anarchist (as distinguished from European syndicalist) to get into the 90s.



  16. anand srivastava on July 5, 2010 at 10:03

    Got 79%. I don’t know much about American politics ;-). I guess I guessed wrongly several places.

  17. Jeff Shattuck on July 5, 2010 at 11:52

    You’re kinda entertaining, but here’s thing: you’re an extremist, so you can’t be reasoned with. You believe what you believe and that’s that, like the Pope, you know?

    Anyway, to describe the Declaration of Independence as ” telling government to go get fucked ” is just stupid. Sure, it told the British government at the time, a monarchy, I might add, to go get fucked but it did so in order to establish a new and different kind of government.

    Also, your test is pretty lame. It’s poorly written and unconvincing.

  18. William on July 5, 2010 at 14:08

    Clue: It’s about telling government to go get fucked.”

    Ah, a man after my own heart. But I was surprised at the test result. My score was 82%. Something went wrong, as I consider myself much more of an individualist, than 82%

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 14:15

      No big, William. While many questions have multiple individualist-ish answers, I’m looking for the BEST, in my own anarchistic view, of course.



  19. Lewis on July 5, 2010 at 15:04

    I must be becoming a statist in my dotage—only scored 93 percent. Good survey, Richard, and a good post to go along with it.

  20. John Campbell on July 5, 2010 at 15:19

    81% – I can live with that – probably pretty accurate for me. I am a Capitalist without the Anarcho – I just can’t see competing police forces working for anyone’s benefit. Your rights cease at the end of my nose and contract law would not exist without a minimal state to enforce that.

    I’d rather not be woken up in the middle of the night by gunfire in my living room because some idiot believes I wronged him in some way. My goal is to have as little to do with the state and the legal system as possible, but I still wear my seatbelt when I drive just in case shit happens.

    • Richard Nikoley on July 5, 2010 at 20:12

      To be clear John, I’m no advocate for competition over force, police or other.

      “I’d rather not be woken up in the middle of the night by gunfire in my living room because some idiot believes I wronged him in some way.”

      You’re more likely to be woken up in the middle of the night by a thug or thief and, “when seconds count, the cops are only minutes away.” – Billy Beck

      There really is no alternative to being able and prepared to defend yourself unless you’re simply will to take your chances, which is fine too.

      “contract law would not exist without a minimal state to enforce that.”

      Amazing how any cooperation, peace, defense takes place internationally. After all, there’s no super state or government over all the Earth’s nations.

      In essence, the arguments, fear, trepidation against notions of a one-world government are precisely the same as I’ve had for 20 years against government.



    • John Campbell on July 5, 2010 at 22:35

      I hear you Richard – I am all for defending myself and not simply leaving it up to the state. And I don’t mean to suggest that nothing could get done without contracts. Clearly that is not the case. I guess I am concerned about a discussion I got into years ago online with some hardcore libertarian of the Anarcho-Capitalist school.

      I don’t mean to say that I understand their position based on a few proponents, but they were crazy from my perspective – not at all what I have seen demonstrated by you or other commentators. I even own a couple of Murray Rothbard books that I have yet to plunge into – my reach always exceeds my grasp and my library exceeds my time.

      I appreciate yet another provocative post, that encourages some more thinking on my part. I know at 81%, I have a lot more in common with your political ideas @ 98% than the vast majority of people out there. It is a funny position for me to be in – a moderate among radicals – after the political screaming matches I got into many years ago with traditional socialists and “progressives”, it is refreshing for me. I fell pretty hard for Ayn Rand and Objectivism when I was 17 years old and still consider myself an Objectivist. Like this paleo lifestyle, it makes way too much sense to ignore or dismiss – and it seems to work – surprise surprise.

      Keep fighting the good fight.



  21. trevalyan on July 5, 2010 at 15:19

    I suppose it’s my fault for taking a quiz that purports to measure individuality. But speaking as one of the people who got a low score on the test despite having what I consider to be pretty strong support for libertarianism, I’m now going to break down my scores.

    1, 2, 3, 4, 5: 27 year old man, no more voting, Democrats are thieves, Republicans are thieves. Nothing offensive here, I hope.

    6, 7, 8: The chief problem with Libertarians is their political actions, Selfishness is natural, pure democracy as constituted is shit. Not a problem, ay? (To think I was actually proposing voting for Ron Paul three years ago. I don’t think Billy Beck has stopped shaking his head yet.)

    9: Homelessness/ poverty is the province of charities. Well, what the hell is wrong with this? I personally feel like kicking some money towards the poor, and don’t demand government money for it, what’s it to anyone else? 3% for this one thing?

    10: Terrorism is best dealt with by understanding their motivations. Now, I know that you and De Coster would agree with me that half of our problem with the government right now, and probably more than half, is how much money is sucked into building the War Machine. Keep terrorists out, have active citizens work to stop them when they try shit. People that compel this much theft money to the military are why the Republican party exists. 7% off.

    11: Illegal drugs are a danger to my children that I should be aware of. If you want to do drugs, that’s cool, but there are some drugs I watch like a hawk. Drugs like crack are poison that carved the hearts out of communities: I hate this stupid War on Drugs, but that doesn’t mean I can’t keep my eyes open. 3% off.

    12, 13: Sex for hire is no problem, public education is deeply flawed. Come on now! I think federal policy is as screwed as a chocolate kettle, and state governments frequently have no idea what the hell they’re talking about. But if people choose to make their own policies with public schools (not, I add, with stolen money), who else is really going to care? 5% off and the quiz is starting to hate me.

    14: My primary reason for helping people is goodwill towards men/ society. Aw Christ, what’s wrong with this? I want to help someone who’s down on their luck- if I think it’s worthwhile, why not? 3% off and it’s at this point 95% of the country is telling the quiz and its writers to get fucked.

    22: You can fit as many individualists as want to try on the head of a pin. Less patient people would be quite surprised that 4% of the test rides on the joke question, comparing the second and third answer. All this one shows is that libertarian humor escapes me.

    The quiz says I need to think more, but I suggest that my deficiencies aren’t on display. A lot of Republicans would read the quiz and simply conclude that Libertarians are narrow-minded fuckheads who can’t be slightly surprised they’re having difficulty in leading a parade, never mind leading Americans to thought.

  22. trevalyan on July 5, 2010 at 15:23

    I should probably add: no, you can’t make people think for themselves. I am really not down with people who take life under this government as a smug debating exercise, though, rather than the deathly serious business it is.

  23. Andrew on July 5, 2010 at 17:07

    33% first time; 100% second. No idea what I truly am. Views are still being molded.

    • trevalyan on July 5, 2010 at 17:32

      Yeah? Do you want to share what you put down for these questions, Andrew? You’d be surprised how some things are weighted by the quiz, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a bad person- no matter what the test might imply.

      But the test also does raise some pretty serious issues that are affecting large numbers of Americans every day. So if I can show you how the system is failing everyone, but particularly you, I’d like to do that.



  24. gallier2 on July 5, 2010 at 23:07

    The quiz is silly. The questions are loaded and the response choices incomplete. Example, “Terrorism is best dealt with by…?”, all 3 choices are bullshit, where’s the choice “stop being an empire” and “Stop manufacturing it” . In the choices of the political parties, they forgot both are political arms of the oligarchy (coprorations being the financial arm of the same oligarchy). etc.. By giving up to 6 possible responses they try to hide that there are much much more possible answers to the questions (let’s call it false hexachomie like in false dichotomy). So that quiz is utter ridiculous and only helps to restrict the political choices by artificially narrowing the spectrum of responses.

  25. Keagan on July 6, 2010 at 00:23

    I find the test to be very flawed, biased and skewed to Americans. I’m unfamiliar with the natures of Democrats and Republicans. Also unfamiliar with the contents of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The last question I assume is some weird humour, since I don’t know of anyone who can fit on a pin.

    But as long as you’re having fun… cheers

  26. trevalyan on July 6, 2010 at 19:36

    We’d prefer to try making our lives right where we are. Is there something about Our Leaders, Democrat or Republican, that makes you particularly like them?

    • Richard Nikoley on July 6, 2010 at 21:55

      “Is there something about Our Leaders, Democrat or Republican, that makes you particularly like them?”

      Like them? Nothing whatsoever. Caveat: if my life came down to it, I’d side with the Reps. In spite of their religious fantasies, they are far less likely to kill me for what I think (they’ll stupidly believe they can covert me for a feather in cap). Dems…well, they go as the wind blows so there’s no predicting. See, Reps are intellectually dumber, but can be fooled easier. America is dumb, so go with the Reps. Dems, on the other hand, are pure evil. Best you not fuck with that, if you can help it.

      Unless you like nouvelle slavery.



    • trevalyan on July 7, 2010 at 05:39

      I had hoped capitalizing Our Leaders had made my own opinions quite clear. Personally, I think both sides have the best of intentions, and they’re free to gather people as they like. Of course, we all know the best use of good intentions. What I have a problem is the theft they use- the increasing exclusiveness of their viewpoints plus the limited (but large) resources of America means their current path is inevitably going to collapse in either internal conflict or lead to one subsuming the other.

      But I think you’re deluding yourself if you think the Republicans are less likely to kill you. This insane drug war is one of their key issues, and they will become a lot less friendly if they ever suspect you don’t feel like handing over however much taxes to support the war machine, or the Social Security that keeps them in the good graces of the elderly. Oh, the Democrats would gladly hang all tax cheats, but they aren’t more or less evil than the Republicans.

      Both are only paying lip service to the idea of personal freedom and economic freedom for smaller businesses, and if Bush/ Obama doesn’t prove how much this is true, then I think people will never see it.



  27. Richard Nikoley on July 6, 2010 at 21:43

    V: what is it about “LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE AND I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES” are you too much of of a silly and pathetic little moron to understand, finally?

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams — 1776

    Just found your site from a link from Whole9 and thought it was pretty good. Then I read this post and knew I had to save you to my daily websites to visit. I only got an 83% on the test, guess I need to re-think some things as I thought I was 100% committed to the non aggression principle and anarchist/Voluntaryist principles.

    Gee, to show you are an individualist you have to think like everyone else in the individualist movement? I don’t think they are using the word the way I use the word. Even though I scored 15% on that quiz, it’s an opinion quiz, not a process quiz. Their explanation of the score is quite ugly and insulting.

    “You either think that others owe you a living, or, you believe that you hold the path to enlightenment — either materially or spiritually — and you’re willing to impose it upon society as a whole, through force, at any cost. ”

    No one owes me a living. I think I am on the path to my own spiritual enlightenment and that’s why I go to church, to share with others on the path. I hold no delusion that my way is THE way everyone else has to follow.

    Also, voting is a duty of citizenship, not a social duty or a moral privilege or an imposition.

    I guess to be an individualist is to not give a crap about others in their view.

    I’m pretty much a fascist myself. Black uniforms, flags, secret police……it all gives me a boner.

      Ok, funny to the ridiculous, so I’ll let the trill pass.

    I’m surprised about all the hate on the constitution. I looked at it as a document to keep government off of our back….it’s not but thats what it’s supposed to do. At least i thought. I’m all for being left alone.

    Im a libertarian and hate the fed g0v as they intrude on our liberties every day.. The gov is a big bully who will show up at your doorstep with guns if you don’t do what they say. And all the bills passed post 9/11 are a detriment to our society. Replublican and Democrat = same party. Its a 2 headed monster. We are ruled by the elite..
