Without Government, There Are No "Rights"



January 02, 2011 – Comments (20)

Every right you have comes from Government.  The right to get married, the right to own property, the right of citizenship, the laws we function under, the right to own a stock in a public company, etc.....

Three years ago, when I started blogging under the name Alstry, I created and defined the term Zombulation.  It was even cited in the New York Times by the late William Safire.  Zombulation was defined as what occured when a person, business, and/or government entity ran out of income, savings and access to credit.

It was clear back in 2005 that most of our private sector was simply functioning by an unprecedented amount fraudulent lending (as defined by knowing or should knowing that the loan couldn't be paid back when originated) to the private sector...

And...once you cut off credit to the private sector, tax and other revenues to government would soon evaporate and government would soon also become insolvent.

Today, government is functioning by a MASSIVE multi trillion dollar deficit.  A deficit so large that no nation or entity in the world has sufficent dollars to fund it.  Since the market crash in 2007....Wall Street and Washington have maintained operations by borrowing OVER $5 trillion dollars(the total amount borrowed by both the public and private sector from 1776 to 1980)....which by the way is the basis for much of the "cash on the sidelines."......and much of that borrowing has come from our investment, retirement and pension accounts through the purchase of corporate and government bonds.....including money market funds. credit has NOT been restored to the private sector.....the deficits to our cities, counties, states and Federal Government has been increasing steadily.......and access to credit has been decreasing as of late evidenced by rising interest rates, services being cut off and increasing articles about municipal defaults.

What was frustrating to me, after talking to economists, judges, scientists, public company executives, bank presidents and more.....very few people fully appreciated or understood the dynamic between government solvency(Zombulation) and personal/property government had NEVER been systematically insolvent before.

Even fewer understood that the only reason Wall Street functioned was and is because it was able to sell toxic debt and securites to our pension, retirement, and investment accounts.....Over $5 trillion in the last few years alone....AFTER infecting our accounts with trillions of toxic mortgage backed securities.

Even though the main street and the private sector was in a depression, most didn't care as Wall Street flourished and Washingtion kept operating with business as usual due to borrowing.....but now, as revenues continue to remain depressed and obligations rising.....more and more services that we took for granted are being cut off as access to credit is becoming burdened.......

In addition, Tension and Anger is rising between Governments' need for revenues and the Citizens' ability to fund government and still financially function.  As financial burdens incrase, more and more cannot afford health insurence and basic necessities such as food, fuel and shelter. 

What those citizens who perceive themselves as solvent don't understand is that everything that defines their wealth is a function of a solvent government......and now, insolvent governments need everything those citizens have to function.

As there was no credible source analyzing Zombulation and the impact on the nation.....I created the online news source to track news stories about Zombulation and the dynamic between citizens rights and government's solvency.

In addition, as systems shut down due to Zombulation...innovation will drive new systems and organizational structures for humanity to function as much of the world we currently know will morph into something different.

In sum, will track the transition from Zombulation to Digital Transformation.

It will not be the end of the world, but merely the end of a world as we knew it......and the beginning of a fresh and sustainable new system as much of what we currently function with and under will be obsolete.

And the best of all....Alstry's blogging on Motely Fool will come to a grinding halt as we begin 1.1.11........

Happy New Year To All.......

Why "udder"?  Does that have to do with citizens sucking off the govt? 

Happy New Year and best of luck in your new endeavor, Alstry.

What are your rights if someone is holding a gun to your head and government can't afford police to protect you?

What are your rights if government can't afford judges?

Zombulation is just beginning to be felt by the average Joe....

As the video above explains more fully, without government you have no political rights. But those are just privileges.

If someone puts a gun to your head, whether there is a government or not, you are at his mercy. That's a frickin stupid example. Particularly since most of the time this happens it is an agent of the government with the gun to your head.

You are clearly qualified to refute this statement.  However, ask yourself, what would a world be like absent government?

Who would defend the people? Who would fund education?  Who would prop up pension plans and public companies to keep Wall Street and Warren Buffet functioning?

This blog contemplates the extreme......NO GOVERNMENT...

but the appropriate measure, like most things, is somewhere in between.

Well, there is always government, and of course I've asked myself many times what a world without the State would be like. But humans are capable of self-government without the coercion necessary to feed the State apparatus. Economically, we'd be far better off.

Pragmatic steps toward self-government are clearly preferable to complete collapse of the State. However, that collapse is inevitable, so we shouldn't just sit around and wait for it. Those who are prepared will be fine. Those who refused to see the truth will suffer greatly. And I don't really feel sorry for them.

Ask yourself this simple question....What would happen to the world if access to the internet, banks and oil shut down?

What would rights be?   What would anything be worth? 

It is why I started

From a practical standpoint government is insolvent as many governments around the world are borrowing unprecedented amounts of "money."

When citizens can't do the same, government controls the power if money is what drives production.  The question is how do we strike a balance between the trend toward globalization, the role of government, and the rights of the citizens?

Is this really Alstry or has someone bought the rights to that name and is embarking on a journalistic endeavor for profit? The blog tone just doesn't to be on the same par. Good luck anyway...

Yes, the tone has changed.

In a world of collective interdependence....we will soon learn that we collectively depend on the whole in order for the individual to function.

Here is a perfect example cited on

Housing Distress Pits Condo Owners Against Each Other

It was something I predicted years can extend the same problem as more and more taxpayers can't pay taxes.....what are we going to do, fingerprint people on who gets to drive on highways, or go to schools, or play in parks?

Right now, government needs more than the collective net worth of every American combined.......and without government, net worth is worthless as net worth is a deriviative of a functioning of government.

First, perhaps Alstry has had an epiphany.

Second, Alstry what are the bounds of "collective interdependence" Community, State, Federal or global?

That's right up there with predicting that Mel Gibson will wind up emitting another racist rant this year or that Kanye will say something really weird.

Alstry has only been right about one thing so far, so I'm setting up my own site now too.

Alstry .. Many of the people who read your blog are very discriminating when it comes to sources ... and our time is valuable ... so what makes Udderworld any better than Drudge?  I feel like you are self-spamming when you shamelessly plug udderworld ...  Some of the links appear stale ... who do you think you're kidding?

Udderworld is designed to provide "all" the news.  If you click the right red NEWS link, you get news from over a dozen sources in an easy to read format.

The set up of the main page is designed to track news in the following three catagories. 

1)  The bankruptcy, or Zombulation of government.

2)  The rights between citizens and government when government is insolvent.

3)  Solutions to the problems due to Zombulation of our economy such as Free Education when government can't afford to provide education and few can afford to pay for it.

As far as the stale nature....the "NEWS" link is constantly updated........and the links on the main page are updated and changed as needed.

Coming soon will be an interactive feature between the reader and

I think many will like it and can express their own views.

The question now is how do we as a society deal with government and ourselves when essentially our entire economy is bankrupt......and my site will hopefully help many segway into the UdderWorld by providing relevant knowldege and infomation.
