The Praxeological Theory of History
Human groups do not act. Only individuals act. They choose and act with their free will. Thus laws of history do not exist in the strict sense that they would determine the course of history. This is because on the one hand the events of nature can be unpredictable and on the other hand individuals have free will.
Even evolution cannot be predicted with absolute certainty because there can always come unseen events such as meteorites or other unpredictable natural phenomena. With human history the situation is even more unpredictable since humans can have new ideas and make new choices. They are not automatons but choosing individuals. Even the biological law of reproduction does not hold 100% for the humans because it is conceivable that humans could stop reproducing either because of some disease, voluntarily or by force through some green dictatorship. From methodological individualism it follows that strict laws of history do not exist. Future for humans is not inevitable.
Human free will makes it impossible to predict future with absolute certainty. However, under certain fairly realistic assumptions it is possible to predict both natural and social evolution with high degree of probability. After all, the evolution of animal groups is quite easy to predict under certain assumptions. And since humans are also animals and divided into genetic groups it is also possible to predict the future of different human races with fairly high probability.
Predicting is made even more easy by the fact that human actions are constrained by scarcity, competition, laws of logic and protophysics, laws of nature (physics, biology, medical science, psychology), action (praxeology) and interaction (ethics, economics and politics). These natural and social laws operate as frameworks of action. They can be called the framework laws of history and future.
For example, Robinson Crusoe can make many choices but they are all limited not only by his scarce physical surrounding but also by his own mental and physical limitations. The laws of logic, protophysics, nature (physics, sociobiology, etc.) and action (Robinson Crusoe economics) create sort of framework which limit his choices and thus possible life paths. We can fairly accurately predict much of his life within the framework though we cannot predict many of his daily individual choices.
Later we can as historians study these individual choices and see what crossroads Robinson faced and how he chose and acted. For example, how did he feed himself? Was he lazy or hardworking? Did he decide to build a raft so that he could escape from the island? Did he burn fires during nights so that ships could find him? These major decisions determined what crossroads he took and what of the few available paths he therefore followed. The framework laws not only help to predict his life path but make it even easier to explain them afterwards.
From the Christian Middle Ages through Spanish Scholasticism to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries of Enlightenment, parallel to and intertwined with the development of “normative” natural rights theory, a systematic body of economic theory developed, culminating in the writings of Cantillon and Turgot. According to this intellectual tradition—carried on in the nineteenth century by Say, Senior, Cairnes, Menger, and Böhm-Bawerk, and in the twentieth century by Mises, Robbins, and Rothbard— economics was viewed as a “logic of action.” Starting with self-evident propositions and combining these with a few empirical and empirically testable assumptions, economics was conceived as an axiomatic-deductive science and economic theorems as propositions which were at the same time realistic and nonhypothetically or a priori true.48
Consider, for instance, the following economic propositions: In every voluntary exchange, both partners must expect to profit, they must evaluate the things to be exchanged as having unequal value, and they must have opposite preference orders. Or: Whenever an exchange is not voluntary, but coerced, such as highway robbery or taxation, one exchange party benefits at the expense of the other. Or: Whenever minimum wage laws are enforced that require wage rates to be higher than existing market wages, involuntary unemployment will result. Or: Whenever the quantity of money is increased while the demand for money remains unchanged, the purchasing power of money will fall.
Or: Any supply of money is equally, “optimal,” such that no increase in the money supply can raise the overall standard of living (while it can have redistributive effects). Or: Collective ownership of all factors of production makes cost accounting impossible, and hence leads to permanent misallocations. Or: Taxation of income producers, other things remaining the same, raises their effective rate of time preference, and hence leads to a lower output of goods produced. Apparently, these theorems contain knowledge about reality, and yet they do not seem to be hypothetical (empirically falsifiable) propositions but rather true by definition. (Hans-Hermann Hoppe. The Great Fiction, p. 462)
History and sociology
Predicting the future actions and understanding the past actions of an individual are thus two sides of the same coin because they both utilize the laws of logic, protophysics, nature, action and interaction. Understanding the past is the task of history. Understanding and predicting the future is the task of sociology. Both apply the same laws that constrain human action.
A historian, sociologist or other social scientist who does not understand all these constraining laws is as incompetent as a scientist who believes that the laws of nature and action can be overcome with magic. Most historians, sociologists and other scientists understand the laws of nature. They realize that witches cannot cast magical spells. However, these very same historians, sociologists and scientists believe in interventionism or communism and thus believe in social magic.
Praxeological theory of history
Both the Marxian materialist theory of history and the idealist theory of history are mistaken because the former does not understand the power of the free will and the latter does not see how choices are constrained not only by laws of nature but also by laws of action (praxeology) and interaction (economics and politics). However, both theories do have so much truth in them that they are practically right. But how can both theories be true? Because we do have free will and we are practically under the mercy of material conditions.
The materialist theory of history is right in the sense that we do not live by air and ideas alone. First, we need good genetics, tools, food and other essentials before we can develop a culture where complex ideas can evolve in the first place. Second, true ideas do not spring from nothing but are dialectical in the sense that they develop not only in personal reflection but more so in the battlefield of debate and especially in practical tests of applications. A primitive society cannot develop advanced ideas of logic and mathematics let alone laws of nature, action and interaction. Complex ideas and theoretical systems require a certain level of material comfort, high culture and practical tests in order to develop. In this sense stages of material development do always precede the development of ideas. The plow is mightier than the pen.
For the same reason also the sword is mightier than the pen. Brute force always wins over ideas. Of course, it is true that the sword is wielded according to ideas but in the long run the sword will determine what the ideas are. In time it is easy to censor and brainwash people to obey and even worship the one who wields the sword. However, not all ideas are equal. Even the sword cannot change the framework laws and long uphold many false ideas. Such attempts only lead to the demise of the group in the competition with other groups.
In the long run the question is then not whether the sword is mightier than the pen but whether the sword or pen is right or not. Truth always wins in the end if not on the level of human ideas then on the the level of natural reality and human actions. Two plus two will be four whatever anybody says. Try to change that on the level of actions and you will fail. Similarly the law of supply and demand always work. Try to change that on the level of interactions and you will fail. If you refuse to face the facts and scientific laws your individual actions and your group’s policies will simply fail. If your group is too stupid or stubborn to understand this then sooner or later it will perish by famine, disease or by being conquered by another group.
There is only one way to cling on to false practical ideas: Hide on some isolated island or deep in the jungle or desert. This explains why these groups are extremely primitive. They were never under great competitive pressure from outsiders. It is only because of this that so may of their false ideas were able to prevail so long. False ideas and primitive cultures prevail only in hiding.
Praxeological theory of history combines the materialist and idealist theories by emphasizing human choices and actions. Matter is dead and does not choose anything. Ideas are conditioned by matter and serve brute force. It is only the relation of ideas to concrete actions of individuals and their groups that test and reveal their practical truth. These practical tests explain the development of ideas of both natural and social science. Ultimately those ideas survive and spread which help to serve human groups in the battle of the survival of the fittest individual and group. Competition is the God that reveals the truth and directs history on to the one true path.
Competition between individuals and human groups makes sure there is an inexorable tendency toward Natural Order of peace, justice and prosperity just like there is an inexorable tendency in biological evolution to ever higher species. The one true road that leads to natural order is propertarianism, i.e. principle of homesteading. From this natural and almost instinctual principle follows individual self-determination (control of one’s own body), right to homestead unowned resources and transform/produce them into commodities (agriculture, mining, etc) and/or barter one’s work for commodities. All interaction is voluntary and contractual and division of labor develops.
The reaching of this natural social order is not inevitable because of both free will and the possibility of unforeseen natural events but the tendency is extremely strong nevertheless. Humanity is marching on the one true path toward the Natural order. The path gives us a yardstick we can use both in studying history and predicting future.
The yardstick shows us many things. The one true path has many stages where the property rights, intelligence, savings, technology and the division of labor are increased and consequently also peace and prosperity. Rationalism tells us beforehand the milestones that we must pass in the journey to the Natural order. There are the three stages of economic development:
- Barter economy
- Money economy
- Banking economy
The development is practically automatic since rationalism and economic self-interest creates barter networks which then gradually start to use a medium of exchange (money) in order to solve the problem of the double coincide of wants. Similarly the development of banks is also inevitable because it is in the interest of both savers and investor-producers to use a bank as the middle-man in creating interest bearing credit contracts, i.e. loans. At each stage both savings and division of labor are greatly increased and thus productivity increased especially since prices and interest rates help to coordinate production. A great peace and prosperity ensues. Humans can rationally understand, create and predict social evolution.
If and as far as labor under the division of labor is more productive than isolated labor, and if and as far as man is able to realize this fact, human action itself tends toward cooperation and association; man becomes a social being not in sacrificing his own concerns for the sake of a mythical Moloch, society, but in aiming at an improvement in his own welfare. Experience teaches that this condition—higher productivity achieved under the division of labor—is present because its cause—the inborn inequality of men and the inequality in the geographical distribution of the natural factors of production—is real. Thus we are in a position to comprehend the course of social evolution. (Ludwig von Mises. Human Action: A Treatise on Economics. Chicago: Henry Regnery, 1966. pp. 160–61.)
These economic changes in a propertarian society also affect the social order in many ways by improving not only the genetic quality of the people but also the culture. Especially the natural elite becomes ever more intelligent, just and prosperous. By developing both the arbitration system and propertarian social discrimination it spreads these qualities to the whole population. Soon a man cannot anymore aggress, lie or behave badly without huge repercussions. Similarly philosophy, science, schooling and the media become completely rationalistic and culture is purged of all aggressive and relativist elements. All this develops in people a psychological independence, self-control and a positive can-do attitude.
This one true propertarian path is very narrow. It is very easy to deviate from it. The laws of logic, protophysics, nature, action and interaction cannot be changed. From the perspective of humans they are eternal and immutable. Those individuals and groups who understand the laws and act accordingly will prevail over all others. Deviate a little from the path by violating laws of logic and property rights and you will suffer. Violate property rights by regulating prices, debasing money or allowing fractional bank reserves and the economy and society starts to disintegrate in a cumulative manner. Stay on the true path by protecting property rights and you will not only prevail but soon lead others by example.
The parasitic detours are cyclical. All deviations from the true path only lead to destructive detours that cyclically always return back to the true path though the traveler might perish before that. Violate property rights and the disintegration of the economy either forces the group to become more respectful towards property rights or it becomes so weak that another more propertarian group starts to dominate it. Either way the group is forced to return to the one true path.
Every single individual has his own lane on the one true path if he wants to live justly and prosper. He must obey the laws of logic, protophysics, nature, action and interaction. In the case of Robinson this is very clear since he must homestead, save, invest and produce in order to live and prosper. However, following the path is not easy. There are many crossroads where he is tempted to turn to more easy roads where he does not have to work and save so much. The wrong turns create surprisingly long detours since laziness, stupidity and other weaknesses create more trouble in the long run. If he makes too many detours then he will die of hunger or disease.
Groups too have their own narrow lane on the one true path. When Friday and more people arrive on the island things change radically because instead of an isolated individual there is now a group. Robinson all alone on his island could take many false detours. But now when another person arrives on the island the actions of Robinson become much more constrained by interactions and their rules. In fact, Robinson and Friday have only two alternatives to propertarianism.
Three alternative paths
The first crossroad any human interaction faces is the question of social rules. The choice is simple because there are only three possible rules of interaction: Propertarianism, interventionism (mixed system) and communism. All these rule systems have very different social consequences that can be easily predicted with the laws of economics and politics. Communism is impossible on a large scale. Even tribes cannot be completely communist because tribe members always want to have some private possessions. So the only alternative to propertarianism is interventionism.
Any deviation from the propertarian natural order by aggression (interventionism and communism) leads to the creation first a band of robbers then mafias and finally the ultimate parasite, the state. From the rationalist perspective the worst social idea has always been the institutionalization of aggression with the monopoly of arbitration and violence. This creates a state that is always in a parasitical relationship with individuals. It is the slave master. It robs you of your right to arbitration by unilaterally decreeing judgments and laws that conscript you, tax your property and regulate your trade and other interaction. Even worse: You are public slave. Unlike a private slave who can buy his freedom a public slave is stuck in slavery with no hope of freedom. Even worse: Public slavery tends to get worse every year.
But if the state is such a cruel slave master why has civilisation advanced at all? Because the state behaves parasitically just like any other mafia. It does not want to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs. Political entrepreneurs running the state firm at least try to not exploit the people too much though often they fail. But why are not people discouraged by the continuous and often worsening exploitation? Why they continue to feed the parasite? Because they have the will to live despite of everything. Adam Smith noted that this natural determination is what drives history forward despite the parasitical state:
This frugality and good conduct, however, is upon most occasions, it appears from experience, sufficient to compensate, not only the private prodigality and misconduct of individuals, but the public extravagance of government. The uniform, constant, and uninterrupted effort of every man to better his condition, the principle from which public and national, as well as private opulence is originally derived, is frequently powerful enough to maintain the natural progress of things towards improvement, in spite both of the extravagance of government and of the greatest errors of administration. Like the unknown principle of animal life, it frequently restores health and vigour to the constitution, in spite, not only of the disease, but of the absurd prescriptions of the doctor. (Wealth of Nations, book 3, chapter 2.)
State is simply a parasite that slows us down. If it grows too big it will destroy us. The parasite theory of the state explains much of history. It is a simple theory that has been understood since time immemorial though rulers have always tried to suppress it. Rationalist history and sociology can easily study the parasitic detours made by interventionist and communist states. The detours are cyclical errors in the sense that they eventually lead to the disintegration of the economy and thus there is a move back towards propertarianism until there is again another attempt to violate natural order. History is thus both linear and cyclical. It is linear because there is an inexorable tendency toward the natural order but it is cyclical because of parasitic activities. However, even the cycles gradually move towards the natural order. Cycles only slow down the march towards natural order though at worst dysgenics can return man to the start. If the statist parasite grows too big it can even destroy man itself by reducing him to animal level both economically and intellectually.
French revolution: before and after: satirical drawing by French draftsman Caran d’Ache, 1898, in the middle of the Dreyfus affair and the foundation of Action Française. Although the Ancien Régime is not shown as idyllic, the contemporary situation is shown as an increase of oppression, which technical improvements (notice the plowshare) don’t lighten, and to which financial capitalism (the banker with his top hat and his wallet), the Freemason (with his set square and plumb bob) and the Jew (with a curved nose) are contributors. (Wikipedia)
Three parasitic cycles of history
It is relatively easy to see the parasitic stages of history since parasitism starts a process where the host tries to rid himself of the parasite by seceding while the parasite tries to hold on and keep on sucking blood/income from the host victim. This creates three parasitic stages of history which all end up with secessionism, withering away of the state and move towards propertarianism. At each three parasitic economic stage the parasite gets too greedy and secessionism follows.
- Barter limited with tribal communism and primitive imperialism
- Money economy limited with business interventionism and classical imperialism
- Banking economy limited with banking interventionism and monetary imperialism
The secession usually occurs when parasitism has first weakened the economy and then the state. However, since the state is not completely killed it gains more power from the next more economically efficient stage. At each stage state becomes more powerful both in strength and geographical extension. The third and final parasitic stage is a world police state.
The big question is why the parasite is not totally killed off after each cycle? Why even after its own near destruction it always keeps on lingering? There are at least four explanations: Ideas, war, technology and race. First, ideas are probably the biggest reason. After all, there has never been a clear anti-statist movement. One reason for this is that the intellectuals have been bought by the state. However, that cannot be the main reason because there has not been even one anti-statist Liberty Manifesto until very recently. And this despite the fact that the essence of the state, the monopoly on arbitration and the consequent parasitism is obviously absurd as is the state money machine.
Second, wars including civil wars tend to concentrate power into one hands which makes the creation of state relatively easy in the early stages of history. Third, weapon technology might also have played a role. The superiority of offensive weapons gives the advantage to the statist armies while the superiority of defensive weapons such as castles removed it for a time. Fourth, there seems to be racial differences in individualism and consequent anti-statism. For example, Iceland had a stateless society for hundreds of years. Neither the Whites nor Blacks seem to have a tendency to create states though for opposite reasons. The Whites are too individualistic while the Blacks do not have a tendency to be organized in a bureaucratic sense. However, the blacks can be enslaved more easily and this might be one reason why among mixed races in the river cultures it was relatively easy to create states especially when the ruling class was composed of White conquerors. Among Mongoloid people individualism is so low that statism seems almost natural for them. Consequently the Chinese state has continued almost uninterrupted by many thousands of years.
Applying the parasitic cycle theory we see that the first cycle starts when on the tribe level there is a sort of democratic or rather mobocratic (rule of the mob) semi-communist ministate where the majority opposes the development of private property and arbitration. Primitive communism inevitably leads to the tragedy of commons, overpopulation and war. Gradually those groups start to dominate which have started to secede from communism by becoming more respectful of property rights and created a society based on private families. This first parasitic cycle ends in the birth of agriculture, development of barter, money and civilization.
The second cycle starts after the development of a money economy which greatly increases productivity. However, this prosperity easily leads sometimes leads to civil wars as well as conquests especially from the north. The conqueror or the winner of the civil war can now efficiently tax the people and create a military state. It is the combination of wars, money monopoly and taxation that lead to the birth of classical states. These parasitically draw great income from the money economy thus creating the classical empires of Egypt, Babylon and Rome. This second classical parasitic cycle usually starts with conquering aristocracy and gradually develops into monarchy and finally its most aggressive form, despotism when the money has been debased and price controls have destroyed the economy. The cycle ends with the disintegration of the empire, anarchic political competition and the birth of freedom. Especially frontier freedom shows how freedom works and leads to the ideological freedom movements. Now there is a real possibility to kill the state. After the fall of Rome the political system became highly decentralized, the economy started to gradually boom and general living standards rose to new heights.
The third cycle starts when banking has developed and thus economy has greatly expanded. However, honest 100% reserve banking is soon turned by the state-banking alliance into fraudulent fractional reserve banking and monetary imperialism. The ability to create money out of nothing gives the state not only great income and debt finance but even more importantly it allows the state to gradually free the rest of the economy. The paradox of state finance becomes clear: By decreasing taxes and especially regulations (monopolies and cartels) the income of the state is increased in the long run especially with a better credit rating. The consequent paradox of imperialism forces most states to also free their economies.
This decrease in taxes and especially in regulations makes the Industrial revolution possible even if the state money machine (fractional reserve banking) makes it unstable by creating ever worsening business cycle. In the face of high popular expectations, banking crises and wars the state tries to maintain public support with democratization and egalitarianism. However, eventually monetary imperialism creates a world state which eradicates the competition between states. This leads to ever increasing regulations, taxes and a global police state with almost communist rule. Economic growth stops and the business cycle helps to crash the semi-communist global economy which then leads to a global secessionist movement. If the freedom movement is strong enough the state can finally be killed.
The three parasitic cycles feed from the linear development of the propertarian economy that starts from barter economy proceeds to money economy and finally to banking economy. The cycles create an economic megacycle from tribal communism to national interventionism to global communism. Similarly there develops a political megacycle from the tribal majority rule (mobocracy/democracy) to the national rule of the few (oligarchy/aristocracy to tyranny/monarchy) to the global majority rule (mobocracy/democracy).
The economic and political megacycles then create the ideological superstructure starting from philosophy. First, tribal democratic semi-communism creates pre-modern relativism with belief in magic. Second, national monarchical interventionism tries to control society with historicism and nature by empiricism but largely fail because the glue of rationalist apriorism is censored as too anti-statist. Third, global democratic semi-communism creates postmodernist relativism which returns science to the primitive magical level. At the end this philosophical megacycle is accelerated by communist politics and culture especially since they return the more communistic women to political and cultural power.
Together these two parasitical megacycles and their superstructure determine history as long as property rights are violated.
- Tribal pre-modern relativist democratic communism with marauder imperialism
- National semi-rationalist monarchical interventionism with high regulation and military imperialism
- Global post-modern relativist democratic communism with low regulation and monetary imperialism
Parasitism starts the cycle but its motor is the long-run impossibility of both communism and interventionism. Pure communism is impossible even in short-term except as a relationship between baby and mother. Otherwise communism is in practice always semi-communism and only tries to modify propertarianism. Pure interventionism is also impossible in the sense that it is not possible to totally regulate the lives of people. Interventionism is in practice always semi-interventionism and only tries to modify propertarianism. Just like communism is practiced in infancy so interventionism is practiced during early childhood. Both are practically impossible in productive adult life and totally impossible as a social system. Their popularity is based on the atavistic desire to return to childhood and the idea that “world owes me a living”.
Both communism and interventionism suffer from “internal contradictions” or rather in the long run they fail to deliver which leads to a change of policies. This is why communism has to turn either into propertarianism or interventionism. Similarly interventionism has to turn either to propertarianism or communism. Since propertarianism is unacceptable to the ruling elite communism and interventionism take turns. However, the third cycle is the final stage of parasitism since there is no way to make parasitism more efficient. Parasitism can not extend geographically since almost the whole globe is now under a parasitic monetary imperialism. There can be no fourth cycle but only reversion to an earlier cycle.
Also tribal communism does not seem possible unless there is a global green dictatorship and strong dysgenics. This seems improbable because people probably would not accept massively lower living standards. Therefore the third cycle probably leads either to peaceful propertarianism or return to militarist interventionism. Either way the situation is improved since communism always totally destroys reason and civilisation. Even interventionism is better since slavery is more privatized and there is at least a drive towards higher civilisation. It is communism that is the enemy of civilisation.
Parasite megacycle in history
Applying the parasitical cycle theory to history in more detailed manner we see how for thousands of years human societies have been dominated by parasitic activities, i.e. first primitive communism and then classical and modern states. Since parasitism cannot continue without the host the property rights have only been curtailed and parasitism has only dragged down human societies and their productive activities. However, without parasitism many wars, poverty and injustices would have been avoided.
The first parasitical cycle of history started at the dawn of history with the appearance of human tribes. These were clearly communistic to the extent that there were not even families but that females and males copulated almost freely. The political order of the tribe was democratic majority rule. Land was not owned and transformed since the tribe members were hunter-gatherers. Almost all property was shared equally. Naturally this led both to low investment and overpopulation. This was first alleviated by migration but soon also by continuous intertribal wars.
Gradually these tribal wars intensified to the extent that only the fittest groups survived or could expand their territory. The fittest were naturally those groups who had started to adopt private property principles. Couples became contractual and families emerged. This privatization of interaction led to huge increases in productivity and gradually also land was privatized. Soon propertarian tribes were able to have more members and better arms. Agriculture started to spread ever faster and propertarianism became dominant. The great river valley civilisations developed and living standards rose to previously unimaginable heights. 3000 BC the average living standards in the fertile crescent were so high that they would not be surpassed until 1800 AD.
The second parasitic cycle of history started when money economy developed in the Fertile Crescent. This further increased living standards but made the economy dependent on the price system. Civil wars and conquests easily threatened to collapse the economy and allowed especially the military leaders and conquerors to create the first states. First there were many small competing states run by aristocrats and monarchs. It was the states and especially empires which made slavery, taxation, monopolies, cartels and large scale wars possible. In time relatively low tax military empires such as Egypt, Babylon and Rome developed. Gradually they increased taxes and regulation thus keeping humanity in the Malthusian trap.
The late Roman emperors tried to compensate the decrease in tax income by debasing the currency with money clipping. To make matters even worse they instituted comprehensive price controls that strangled the economy. The disintegration of the economy by led to the collapse of Rome and the invasions of the Germanic people. This coupled with the power of the Church and the idea of Natural Order created an almost anarchic political order in Europe. In frontier areas such as in Iceland state did not develop at all. Competition between the remaining small European states was so intense that many people and especially the merchants could vote with their feet. In Switzerland, Netherlands, North Italy and Holy Roman Empire the state was withering away. This gave birth to liberty and the European Miracle. It made possible the Industrial Revolution which freed mankind from the Malthusian trap.
The third parasitic cycle started with the development of banking in Europe. It was especially the Court Jews that helped make the states powerful again by helping to create the fraudulent fractional reserve banking system. This money machine made both Jews and the state very powerful especially in England which developed an empire and parasitic monetary imperialism together with the United States. Jews also helped states to develop egalitarianism and democracy. This third parasitic stage is still continuing and creating a global police state and accelerating dysgenics.
The present third parasite cycle of history ends when monetary imperialism creates so deep depressions and crises that there will start a secessionist wave. If the state is totally killed then liberty and natural order is finally achieved. However, if the state is not killed then the parasitic cycle will continue. In worst case scenario the democratic dysgenic tendencies continue and lower the average IQs so much that civilisation itself is destroyed and humanity descends back to the level of primitive states.
The end of parasitism
The three cycles are not inevitable. The cycle of parasitism can be stopped at any time with secessionism and propertarianism. The first cycle could perhaps not been avoided but the second cycle could easily have been avoided in many ways. In fact, from the sociobiological perspective the Whites seem to have avoided primitive state building and only engaged in it in Southern multiracial societies. This is all the more probable since after the second cycle states remained very weak especially in the Germanic Holy Roman Empire. Whites and especially Germanics seem to be anti-statist by nature because of their high individualism. This is also why the third cycle probably would not have occurred without the Jewish court bankers. The present global domination of U$Srael also points to this. Jews are the great state builders. Therefore during the break-up of U$Srael the secessionist wave should make it possible to destroy statism in White countries unless dysgenic tendencies have degenerated Whites too much both intellectually and psychologically.
The Great Man theory
The state has created a trend towards ever increasing interventionism that is now finally creating a global police state, U$Srael. How can the trend be stopped and even reversed? It requires several things. First, the truth about both the state and elite Jews must spread at least among the intellectual elite. Second, there must be enough courageous people who dare to oppose the state and especially the hegemonic U$Srael. Third, states must be temporarily weakened by economic depression and political crises to create a secessionist wave. Only when the natural secessionist powers start to break out it is possible to destroy the state. This creates a crossroad moment that requires great men who dare to take the decentralist forces so far that both the law and money monopoly can be destroyed.
In other words it is the social laws that largely determine the course of history. They are so powerful that single individuals cannot suddenly change the course of history. Even great military battles seldom change history because it is the underlying economic and political trends that are often more important. In fact, it is the economic power and logistics which make great battles possible in the first place. However, at single individuals can still influence the course of history with their philosophical, economic and political ideas and actions. The influence will be greatest at crossroad moments when society has entered a crisis situation such as a war or Great Depression. In these moments even a single individual can change the course of history. After all, the emperor and his state has no clothes. Revealing the statist Ponzi schemes can create a domino effect that can fundamentally change the society and the course of history itself.
To reveal the big picture of history is relatively simple but at the same time it is important to know the details. It is especially important to understand how for 2000 years the Jewish elite helped the state to grow into a global police state, U$Srael that now rule over us. This Jewish power developed during several critical moments. Only by studying these crossroads of history is it possible to really understand both the history and the future of the parasite state. You have to understand the beast in order to kill it.
