On 8 May, 2019, DeepdotWeb.com was seized by the FBI, Europol, and other LE agencies. The owners were both Israeli citizens. 1 was living is Israel, the other was in Brasil. They were accused of money laundering and kickback money. They had an affiliate thing going on where they got commission from everything bought, and also possibly received money for ranking their marketplace. They had tones of money in their dwellings, so they did earn a lot from this. They were both arrested. Their court files can be found on the web. When you go to deepdotweb.com now it shows an image of seizure.
Their Onion link does not appear to do anything.
I have since then notices that DarkWebNews.com no longer works and their social media has been taken down. I do not know when this happened, and the Wayback Machine on Archive.org does not index it, but it is probably pretty recently. I can try the Wayback Machine on their social media sometime, but I do not know if DarkWebNews will be back, if it was taken down by LE, or what happened. Their site has Whois guard, so it is hard to find info on this site, and there is less info about it on the web, but if I had to guess, I would guess they are from Panama, since it said that in the WHOIS still.
It seems like recently the government has been cracking down on Dark Web stuff. There is suspision that they were part of the shut down of Dream Market, and they shut down Valhalla, Wall Street, and I think some others recently. I am very upset that the state is trying to get rid of these sites. They help bring privacy to online shopping and the web in general. The state is just choosing to be like Big Brother. Surprisingly, the price of Bitcoin is still going up despite these places being the hotspot of purchases with Bitcoin.
Sadly, Grumpy Cat died today (Actually on May 14 but it was not announced till today) after complications from a urinary tract infection at age 7. Grumpy was a great MEME and we will all miss him. He will always be with us on the Internet though.
I often see people who say how your life is the most valuable thing. Whenever you go to someone asking how to commit suicide, they almost always seem to try to say how there has to be another option. Some Search engines, such as Google and AOL have an autoanswer for words in the nature of “how to kill myself”, of just the suicide hotline (though this is likely the Bourgeoisie who thinks they can get money from you). In California if you go to school and joke about suicide, they force you to some kind of treatment or try to stop you (this happened to me). And Around the world, suicide is illegal (so the state can slave you). If you just talk to a friend they will try to prevent you from doing suicide. Churches and religions seem to look down on suicide. Abortion is causing protests every day. All these entities they seem to have some value in your life.
But why do so many people value life?
This is most likely from people trying to take advantage of us and have made it sound immoral to kill yourself and seem to put life as the most valuable thing. This is likely because of Moralism. Moralism is a paradoxical philosophy that states that actions can be right or wrong. 1st of all, there is little if any prof that an action can be right or wrong, they is little to distinguish, there are many moral/ethical philosophies. But the thing is, where people seem to get lots of their morals from, are the state and large corporations. The people in power are often the ones who make the ethics. These entities like to take advantage of you, either to slave you or to take your money. If you are dead you cannot be their slave/help them or give them money. This can be traced back to the hunter gatherer days, back then, you were looked at as bad if you killed yourself because you would often be a big part of how they got their food. This attitude continued through Egypt and Mesopotamia, who used slaves and still were authoritarian(just a little less bad) to everyone else, and this has continued to the present day. They know they can get taxes from you and stay in power. Since this was already looked down upon, religions could easily integrate it, and it would make sense and in fact spread the fire. The Bible and Quran look at suicide generally unfavourably. But these books are obsolete, filled with errors, and just not provable in most instances. So are the times of small groups of people being dependent on each other. There are now over 7.3 billion people on Earth. There are about 225 people born every minute. Thats more than 3 a second. There are almost that many people who die a minute. Why do people care so much? A single person is just 1 in 7 billion, and that number is growing. The world is already too densely populated in many cities. There is no need to save that many lives anyhow. This value mostly seems to be placed on humans as well. If someone stomps on a wasp, or an ant, people seem to place little value on it, but if a person kills another person, they often make a big deal about it. They are alive to. There is no reason that I can think of that a human life would be worth more than a wasp’s life (both are worthless). The reason that a human can do something in his life is flawed. 1st of all, a wasp can also do stuff in life, there are many humans competing for opportunities to do the things you can do, the last reason is that the earth will be molten in a few billion years and what you did in the 2000’s won’t matter.
I hope I made some stuff clearer for you. If you have questions please be sure to ask.

You often have parents who tell their children not to do something because that something is bad. Such as beating someone up for not obeying you, or acting upon impulse, or stealing from someone else. While some of these may be things to avoid in this current situation or things you may not want to do in general, parents try extra hard to enforce these rules upon their children sometimes. But if you’ve looked into it, sometimes you would notice, that the parent does these things when disciplining their child or sometimes, just for any reason. They say doing something is bad, and do it themselves. Such as, if a hit someone, the parent may think that is bad, so what do they do? They often hit the child who committed the act of violence. Why would you do violence to someone if you think violence is wrong? The idea that it is wrong can often be used as an excuse for the you not to do it, so then the person who is saying it is wrong can just have an advantage over you. They often have excuses such as since they are parents it gives them exceptions to their own rules or that it is for the child’s own good. The issue with the 1st is there is no reason why someone being a parent would give them any reason to be accepted by the children. Parents sometimes say how they gave their children life. This is true, but 1st of all you never asked for that life, and like me, wish you never had it. 2nd of all, just because your parents give you life does give you any objective obligations towards them. Another thing parents say is that you live under their property. Now this is similar to the one about parents giving their kids life; children often do not have a choice where they life. The state often forces them to live with their parents who do this kind of stuff to them. While it is in some cases possible to escape from this, it is often super hard and may need parental approval. Parents will rarely accept. Which brings us to our next point; the state enables this to happen to a large extent for creating exceptions to the laws that allow parents to take from their kids even if it is their own money, and not let the kids take anything. They force the law on minors, but not parents. There are also laws which exist only for minors, such as runaway laws, and other rebel laws. And yet, they are often taught in schools how they are “free”. This brings us to our 2nd section, that this hypocrisy is for their own good. 1st off, we have a section of our forum based on dissing this idea, the name of the section is Anti-Paternalism, 2nd it does it benefit the kids most of the time. Beating them and taking their stuff is just going to make them revengeful to get their stuff back (often through stealing ) or to beat someone else up. Which, if you are punishing them for these actions, actually just makes them want to do it more. Also, many of these “benefits” the children do not want anyways and it just wastes their time.
Edit 3 June 2019
Also, Parents sometimes hit you or steal from you even if they tell you not to for a completely different reason.
That’s it for now, I may make changes later. Feel free to challenge any of these ideas
The Broken Windows Theory states that if one person does crime, most specifically stuff similar to vandalism, anti-social behaviour and other stuff, that it will create an environment where that is allowed and sometimes encouraged or the norm. People often use it to say why we should prevent crime and try to fix the damages of crime as quick as possible. This is to prevent the property and the property nearby from loosing value. But I am proposing something different. Instead of opposing the Broken Windows Theory, why not embrace it? What do I mean? I mean to let people put graphitte on your dwelling, dont stop a criminal doing their crime. Why should we do this? Because the more criminals that vandalise your property with their gang symbol, the more their competitor gangs want to 1 up them. Also if criminals see that it is easy to get away with a crime in a place, more will come do it. Then more criminals come, law enforcement starts to loose power, and is more crime comes and they loose power by the hour. Then they start to try to hire more cops. This part is bad, but more cops leads criminals to recruit more members to their gangs. They soon will have more power than the law enforcement. When the criminals are ahead of the cops at this point, the law enforcement has little chance of catching up. They will also mostly target more serious crimes. This leads to you having more freedom, LE will have less control over you and will big you less. Just maybe pay the criminals some money if they ask. I have had this idea this idea for a while. I recently heard that this was happening in Seattle. Tons of homeless people live there, and LE has little power there. They make this look bad, but I think it is good. There is more freedom there. This theory seems to lead to freedom. Thats why we should embrace it. Also, who does’nt like some art on their property?
The State of the Union is happening today as I am writing this. There are many issues with the state of the union which I wish to cover. The 1st issue, and this happens a lot even outside of the state of the union. This issue is that people call the USA, America. The USA MAINLAND is in America, but they are not the only part of America. And Not all of their land is even in America(such as Guam). Here is a Map of America and the USA.
The Blue is The USA, Everything in the line is America. Yes I know I left out some islands part of America and Parts of USA-Only/Non-American Land. But as you can see, USA is not the only part of America. And even though they are not on this map, some islands the USA owns are not in the Americas. When they call themselves just “American” they seem to think they are the only Americans. I often call people from USA “United Statesian”, I am United Statesian, and I do not think that we are the only part of America.
Next thing, they have many references to god. Many people belive in god, but there are some people who do not. When you put god references in your speech to the whole country, even full of people who do not belive-in a single god or any higher power, they are leaving those people out. If you belive-in god, that’s ok, but I do not think they should push that on people who do not belive-in a higher power.
They also like to say how the “State of the Union is Strong”. This can be good or bad depending on how you view it. In this case, in many ways I think it is bad. Being together with the federal government lets them control you more, they block autonomousness.
Another thing, is they talk about closing boarders more. Why should we even have boarders? Boarders stop business decisions and just benifit the state. EU contries dont really have boarders with other EU Contries, why should we have such strong boarders? Wouldnt all that crime eventually spread out and be even? Boarders I think do more harm than good. We could work together with contries, but the state does not seem to like that. If state did not exist, there most likely would be no borders. It would be great IMO.
One thing they said is how they are working on a “trade deal” with PROC (People’s Republic Of China). What kind of “trade deal” could they be making? Why cant they just let the people who live in the country decide the trades on their own? Why do they need governement to do that for them? Or do they mean tarrifs when they say trade deals? Those are bad, they are just the government saying how much power they have and how they do not want you to benifit other contries even if it benifits you.
Another thing is that Trump called us Socialist, which in some ways we are depending on who you ask. But I think we are more of a Social Democracy. Socialism I think is more of a transition to Communism and maybe in super rare cases capitalism. But do you think we will ever go to Communist or Capitalist? I doubt it, if we did, then the government would loose their power. And we all know they do not want that.
Another thing, he says they will cut taxes. Sounds good IMO, but is it really do you think? Do you actually think the government will cut its spending on things we do not really need? No! They are probobly just going to build more debt that the newer generations will have to pay off.
One last thing I want to mention for now, is how the U.S President is picking sides. They are claiming that their pick for the president of Venezuela is the legit president fo Venezuela. There is still debate on that. And they also claim that Jerusalem is the capital is Isreal. It may be, but it is also under dispute with Palestine. The USA does not recognise Palestine for some reason, they are just spitting in their face. Also, USA claiming the legitness of their side probobly makes their allies angry, such as Russian Federation or PROC. I recognise Palestine, but USA government does not.
Now there are many more things I would like to cover, but I am a little low on time and ideas now, I will most likley be editing this to find more problems with the state of the union.
I have always been against DNA Finders for this reason. I have said that the FBI will be able to have access to your DNA. If you have an identical twin who does crime you can be in trouble. DNA is a big thing used in Crime finding, but even if you claim you have nothing to hide, you still probably want the FBI or anyone knowing what you DNA is. Sometimes, you can be wrongly accused of a crime because your DNA was found. Plus, the government will always know where you go if they find your DNA in other places. Also, “Nothing to Hide” can be a flawed Argument, this is an article from DuckDuckGo/Spread Privacy, an online privacy company. I am sure there is some stuff even if not illegal that you do not want the people to know. A Reddit User gives a great example of this.

Whenever I hear someone saying that they have nothing to hide, I ask them when they last masturbated and how often they do that. Then suddenly they seems to have things to hide after all… strange… If you have nothing to hide, you are either deliberately lying or have seriously bad imagination.
******OK Back To Me *******
Not everyone may be scared to hide this, but I doubt you want certain people knowing, and this is just one of millions of things people like to hide, and giving the government access to your DNA more easily can make it much easier for government to know that you were linked to something even if it is not illegal.
The Final Point I would like to make, is that if they can get away with this, they will eventually be able to get away with it even more. USA is already in many ways a censored police state with tons of surveillance. Do you really want more? I think life would be better if we all fought against all the spying we have, not allowing more.
If the FBI knows they can get away with 1 thing, then they know they probably can with another. They may say they have only used it for a few cases, but government has a rep of lying to people, and could have used it more, or even found a way to copy the whole DNA database to use for all future cases.
I would also recommend this writing on the Anarchist Library.
Please Note, this is the old article, for the new article please look at The Leftist Case against a Minimum Wage.
The minimum wage is suppose to help people in the lower classes not be poor. But there are many disadvantages to it, 1st of all, it is anti-capitalist, and such a thing would not exist in Communism either, since wages do not exist in communism. Its just a regulation. If someone pays too low, then people can just not work there. If you are limited in options, you can just go on strike in a union of other workers until they either pay you back or do not have any employees. If everyone pays low, you can go to a communist group. The government must just be assuming that we are too stupid to decide what we can live off of. They, like all the time, are using paternalism to justify what they are doing so they can control us more. Its not “wrong”, but I think it has more bads than goods, another thing is it makes it harder for a startup to hire anybody and makes it so it is harder for them to gain momentum. This in turn causes for less jobs and higher unemployment (which government seems to care about). If they do need to hire some people for a minimum wage, then the goods start to cost more. Some of the things these people do are easy and probably do not require minimum wage to be done. Another thing, is that if people cost too much, then the employers are just going to hire people off-shore or use robots to do the work for them. This is just a regulation to try to stop unchecked capitalism. Unchecked Capitalism is good for people like me, but not for governments, so that’s why they try to stop it in my opinion.
Edit 27/09/2019 CE :
I am now an Anarcho-Communist, and see minimum wage as a way to keep the capitalist and power and make it look like the state is helping. The Minimum wage does not help workers in my opinion, the prices of things will just go up, as long as there is capitalism, there will be oppression.
I often hear the phrases “Communist Country”. This term is flawed because in order to have communism, the state must wither away or have been abolished. While all countries today (that I know of) have centralised governments and claim land that they do not even use. Even “Communist” countries suffered from these things. They are mostly centralised, and often were imperialistic. These countries were is almost no way communist, but rather a version of Marxism. These countries are mistakenly called communist. Not even all of them say they have achieved communism yet. The more accurate way of how communism would work, is that there would be communes, these communes do not have centralised government, and decisions are made collectively by the commune. This is to make sure everyone is equal. Communes would also never be that big. Maybe a few hundred people at most, they may have set boundaries, but you are free to go in and out, and its almost never more than they need. You would always be able to easily leave your commune and join another, while in most countries you could not. People often misunderstand what I mean when I say I want communism, they seem to think I want the whole United States to be a single communist country. This is not the case; we do not want to keep the United States or whatever country, rather people would be in communes, there would probably be millions of communes in a place like the United States area, it would not be a single country. And if you really were to not like communism, I am sure there would be a lot of land not claimed by a commune which you could do capitalism stuff if you really wanted to.
