Posted at Fox - Rapid-Fire Q&A: Explain Political Principles to Youngsters

Royal Serf (draft)
By Ilyn Ross
Start: October 19, 2008

Plot-theme: A royal slave’s flight for independence, and an uncommon man’s struggle that his country’s Declaration of Independence might not perish from the Earth

Setting: The US and the UK, mainly in 2012 (US Presidential Elections)

Royal Serf is a political thriller that uses many true events as background. It has a prologue and 15 chapters. I have finished writing up chapter 11. Four more chapters to go. This is an excerpt from chapter 12:

She relaxed on a reclining chair, turned on the television, and watched a replay of the Teenage Q&A show. The guest was Apollo Marianto.

An eighteen-year-old boy from the audience asked, “Mr. Marianto, could we have a rapid-fire Q&A? How would you make youngsters understand these political principles – first, the principle of Individual Rights?

“Live and let live.”


“Mind your own business. Good work is the key to good fortune.”


“Babysitting adults.”

“Mixed economy?”

“Clean water with drops of poison.”

“Antitrust Laws?”

“Russian roulette, with the government holding the gun at every businessman’s head. Government-mined fields traversed by businessmen."


“Shackles for wealth and job creators.”


“To the irrational: damn if you do, damn if you don’t.”

“Do good by force?”

“The power-luster’s subterfuge. Absolving the lazy from the necessity of thinking. Arranged marriage.”


“The command to eat vegetables. Military draft. Rape.”


“Too lazy or cowardly to take up a position.”


“A pragmatist’s description of one who has convictions.”


“One who blanks out the past, the future, the whys, the wherefores, and the hows.”

Regarding: “Profit?” “To the irrational: damn if you do, damn if you don’t.”

Changed to: "To the irrational: damn if you do; damn if you don’t. Greed if you profit; greed if you don’t.”

Job Losses: Dishonest Diagnosis, Deadly Prescriptions

It is devastating when a breadwinner loses his job, or when there are no jobs for jobseekers. Yet, politicians, judges, the media, and voters unremittingly bash job-creators.

The most prolific job-eradicator is the government. The destruction of jobs and their creators is due to serfdom made possible by unreason, envy, power-lust, and the criminalization of the value enshrined in the Declaration of Independence: the freedom of action in the pursuit of individual self-interests.

For more than a century, job-creators, i.e. businessmen, have been slaves. Power-lusters, looters, and moochers have rendered them fair game to every vilification, extortion, and rights-infringement by dishonestly portraying them as callous evil crooks.

Job-creators are widely denounced as exploiters of consumers, employees, investors, competitors, and the public. It is dishonestly or stupidly blanked out that businessmen with no political pull cannot impose their products or services on anyone. Only the government has the power to coerce.

Job-creators are widely denounced as materialistic and greedy. It is irrationally blanked out that they must earn profits in order to survive, and that big profits mean more jobs and also more money in the coffers of the kings (i.e. congressmen, senators, and the president) and the royalty (i.e. recipients of coercive-favor or coercive-welfare).

The only savior of jobs and their creators is freedom. Unleash the job creators!

But power-lusters, looters, and moochers will not relinquish their coercive power over businessmen. Although many job-creators have gone out of business or have been jailed and banned from creating more jobs (e.g. Mr. Mike Milken, the creator of 62 million jobs), the job-eradicators irrationally believe there will always be job-creators to bash.

If you care about jobs:

1. Advocate capitalism: the complete separation of state and economics
2. Champion reason
3. Value businessmen who do not want the government to coerce anyone in their behalf.

There is bipartisan support of serfdom and job-eradication in the government. Democrats are for socialism and the Republican Party is not for capitalism. Republicans strongly support bashing job-creators with regulations like the antitrust laws. The Republican Party is not for freedom. It is not pro-choice, the cornerstone of liberty. It dishonestly describes itself as pro-life. Since it blanks out the life of the pregnant human being, since it champions destroying the life of an actual human being, most of the time: a young girl, and since it advocates force -- forcing a female human being go through a lifetime paying for a mistake -- the Republican Party is certainly not pro-life. It is paving the way towards the worst scourge of mankind: theocracy.

A corrupt government has favors to sell. Unwilling to relinquish this goldmine, it cannot grasp that what rights-abiding producers and consumers do is none of the government’s business, that the rights-abiding market must be absolutely free for the economy to survive. Freedom categorically ends lobbying and favor-seeking because it ends the politicians’ power to offer extorted property and their own souls for sale in the name of the poor and the middle class and in the interest of the public. Serfdom is not in the interest of rights-abiding people.

Serfdom, e.g. businessmen-bashing, neutron-bombs jobs. The honest prescription to the loss of millions of jobs is freedom. Unleash capitalism and the heroic job creators!

My letter to:

Mark Tapscott
Editorial Page Editor
The Washington Examiner

Declaration for Socialism

President Obama said that government deficit spending stimulates the economy. This is the dishonest version of ‘spread extorted wealth around’. Deficit spending is wealth confiscation, wealth created by productive slaves. Much of it, if not all, will be borne by yet-to-be-born slave-producers. Right to life means the freedom not to be burdened with other people’s debts or costs of living. Mr. Obama is no rights-respecter.

“It is absolutely true that we can't depend on government alone to create jobs or economic growth," President Obama said. "But at this particular moment, with the private sector so weakened by this recession, the federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back into life. It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs."

Since only the government has the power to coerce, Mr. Obama’s solution to the ailing economy is: more coercive power – more enslavement.

Tragically, the alternative offered by the Republican Party, a strong advocate of oppressive laws like antitrust, is a path towards theocracy.

Recessions are caused by serfdom. The cure is freedom. The solution to the loss of jobs is capitalism: complete separation of state and economics, coercion-free existence. Unleash the job creators!

Royal Serf (draft)
By Ilyn Ross
Start: October 19, 2008


A historical and current events fiction, Royal Serf is a political thriller depicting the real-life enslavement of the world’s lifeblood, the consequent economic dislocations, and an intellectual revolution.

To free wealth and job creators relegated as royal serfs, US Presidential Candidate Apollo Marianto and British Prime Minister Ian Washington shine light on the camouflage used by statists to enslave job creators: Business’ Goliath image. Having a monopoly on coercive power, only the government can become a Goliath.

Government-Goliath has terrorized job creators for over a century. Corporate America is under a bipartisan dictatorship.

Apollo and Ian fight for equal inherent inalienable rights, but they are in the crosshairs of a powerful quartet and a perfect assassin.

The quartet blackmails Apollo and Ian, using the British Crown Prince desirous of freedom, regarding himself as a royal serf to tradition, duty, and public opinion.

Set in the United States and the United Kingdom, mainly in the 2012 US presidential elections, the novel’s plot-theme is: a royal slave’s flight for independence, and an uncommon man’s struggle that his country’s Declaration of Independence might not perish from the Earth.
