The Word-Smith Fallacy


Quick rant here…

When one hears an excuse enough times, especially one that is blatantly outrageous in its underlying con-text, it sometimes causes one to boil over with the urge to lash out and utterly destroy the character of the one using the excuse.

In this case, having just heard such a term used for the 100th time at least, I’d like instead to practice my repose and dissect the problem calmly and rationally.

It is often the case that people in their discourse and cognitive dissonance use the term “wordsmith” in a dualistic fashion to defend whatever disposition they find themselves in. This term is used as a single phrase that implies a two-fold meaning, one being the defensive notion that “I am not a wordsmith,” while at the same time offensively inferring that “only a wordsmith would say such things.” In other words, the use of this term singlehandedly stops the conversation and thus the furtherance of knowledge sharing, and at the same time belittles the speaker or writer by creating an ad hominem attack on the character of he who studies and attempts to use words correctly. Amazingly, this seems to be a very popular response when the Reality of things, specifically the artful and alternative legal and metaphorical meaning of words of art, is presented and verified by multiple sources.

And so I am creating an new logical fallacy here, by the name of “The Wordsmith fallacy,” though logic and reason are nowhere to be found in its use.

So let me be perfectly clear while at the same time venting a bit of repressed and pent up aggression when I say this:

IF YOU AREN’T A WORDSMITH THEN YOU ARE FUCKING ILLITERATE!!!

There. I said it. Feels surprisingly liberating, really.

—=—

“Am I therefore become your enemy,
because I tell you the TRUTH?”

—Galatians 4:16, KJB

—=—

The synonyms of this term wordsmith are not many, those being “writer” and “author.”

–WordNet 3.0, Farlex clipart collection. 2003-2012 Princeton University, Farlex Inc.

In its most simplistic definition, we find the following:

1. fluent and prolific writer, especially one who writes professionally.
2. An expert on words.
American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition, 2011, by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company.

1: a person who works with wordsespecially:  a skillful writer

 –Merriam-Webster, Incorporated, online, 2015 

Controlled by words…

The legislature is the author of law. The court administers that law and writes opinions. The president writes executive orders and presidential directives. The attorneys at bar write everything else, from procedure to rules of evidence to the over 100 Uniform Codes.

Oh, but they are just wordsmiths.

Sure asshole, and their skillful writings, being experts on the terms of art of the legal language just happened to enslave you and your illiterate family and their illiterate forefathers before them for generations.

Yeah, but they’re just wordsmiths!

Right dickweed, that’s the point. Because you are not. Because every contract you sign, every law you are bound in surety to follow, every flattering title you pretend, and every aspect of your life is controlled by their words. Yep, they smithed your person (status), they smithed your license, your social security card, and hell, they are even the smiths of the banking laws, which let’s face it, that number’s game is a whole other language most of us are also quite illiterate at.

Sure, but they are still just wordsmiths.

How fucking long can we play this game? How many times can you play this fallacy? How long can you “stick with stupid?”

Not ironically, there is already a word to describe this fallacious tool of idiocracy that has long been in existence, and of course each word leads to a connect-the-dots story to be told:

WORD-CATCHER – noun – One who CAVILS at words.

CAVIL – verb intransitive – 1. To raise captious and frivolous objections; to find fault without good reason; followed by at. It is better to reason than to cavil2. To advance futile objections, or to frame sophisms, for the sake of victory in an argument verb transitive – To receive or treat with objections. Wilt thou enjoy the good. Then cavil the conditions. – noun – False or frivolous objections; also, A FALLACIOUS KIND OF REASON, bearing some resemblance to truth, ADVANCED FOR THE SAKE OF VICTORY.

CAVILER – noun – One who CAVILS; one who is apt to raise captious objections; a captious disputant.

CAPTIOUS – adjective – 1. Disposed to find fault, or raise objections; APT TO CAVIL, as in popular language, it is said, apt to catch at; as a captious man2. Fitted to catch or ensnare; insidious; as a captious question. 3. Proceeding from a CAVILING DISPOSITION; as a captious objection or criticism.

SOPHISM  noun – [Latin sophisma.] A specious but fallacious argument; asubtilty in reasoning; an argument that is not supported by sound reasoning, or in which the inference is not justly deduced from the premises. When a false argument puts on the appearance of a true one, then it is properly called a sophism or fallacy.

–Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language

So, is it fair to say that using the term wordsmith to escape discourse and ensnare the conversation is but a captious, sophist method of fallacious rhetoric? Or am I being too damned word-smithery for you?

At this point I have figured out the whole game, how everything was stolen from us through attainder and escheat, and how the feudal system is alive and well through contract, for the words of the contract make the law.

Oh, but those are just words, right?

There I go again. Damn wordsmith.

Well, I leave you with this final thought. In overcoming my own arrogance in using the English language in the pointless rhetoric we are bombarded with everyday, I was presented with a piece of information that I could not have imagined to be true, and one I followed to its suprising end. It spawned a whole discourse on the legal language, in the form of my upcomming works, an encyclopedic journey through legalese. And nothing I have ever done has been more enlightening, revealing just how illiterate I was in using the language I learned in public schools; the one given to us to keep us dumb to the designs of those wordsmiths we complain so much about but never learn their art.

And so to be clear, here is what you think you know.

DOG-LATINThe Latin of ILLITERATE PERSONS; Latin WORDS put together on the ENGLISH GRAMMATICAL SYSTEM.

–Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition

You see, my fallaciously caviler detractors, a slave-master never teaches his slaves his mysteries, never revealing the artful law and its structure of words that entangles him in intangible chains. He keeps his slaves illiterate, spiritually and deductively, just as the priest-class has kept the multitude ignorant of its words for many centuries, so that the people may listen to the wordsmiths (priests) rather than read the Source and True meaning of their words.

The lawmakers will never teach the general population that which they seek to control them with, keeping their private language as their secretive terms of art, revealing them only under oath in private associations; conspiratorial combinations of men acting as agents (attorneys), as officers of the court (crown). And guess what, the translators of the Bible too will never re-smith it into anything but dog-Latin, so that despite the fact that there are more Bibles than people on this planet and that they are given away free and can be found available in every hotel room, these wordsmiths of the king ensured that you would never be able to read it’s words in their true intent. For they only teach us dog-Latin. They keep us all public-minded, through public-education, by the vulgar public language, while they privately control the “higher” one to ensure constant confusion. The Bible is written in the king’s language, legalese; as a mostly parabolic metaphor. And the legal fiction is opposed to dog-Latin.

—=—

“All intelligent thoughts have already been thought; what is necessary is only to try to think them again.”

—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

—=—

And so, my illiterate compatriots, when you finally figure out that every word you say in dog-Latin carries the opposite meaning of the legal wordsmith in a black robe you are speaking to, perhaps then you will comprehend why you always loose in court. Why you can’t figure out how to exit their system based on their artful words. Why you can’t quite grasp how you are tricked into volunteering to be subject to them. And why you always turn away from perfectly good conversations simply because you can’t speak the language that sounds exactly like your own, public, dumbed down version.

So learn the language or continue to eat shit.

SHYSTERnoun -“unscrupulous lawyer,” 1843, U.S. slang, probably altered from German Scheisser “incompetent worthless person,” from Scheisse “SHIT” (n.), from Old High German skizzan “to defecate” (see shit (verb)).

–Etymonline.com

It’s up to you…

The roots of language are

—Jorge Luis Borges, Prologue to “El otro, el mismo.”

—=—

“Names are an important key to what a society values. Anthropologists recognize naming as one of the chief methods FOR IMPOSING ORDER ON PERCEPTION.”

—David S. Slawson

—=—

“There exists, for everyone, a sentence – a series of WORDS – that has the power to destroy you. Another sentence exists, another series of WORDS, that could heal you. If you’re lucky you will get the second, but you can be certain of getting the first.”

―Philip K. Dick, quoted from: ‘VALIS’

—=—

“…and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by CRAFT, and put him to death.”

—Mark 14:1, KJB

—=—

“In politics, nothing happens by accident.
If it happens, you can bet
it was planned that way.”

—President Franklin D. Roosevelt

—=—

“In doubtful cases, the presumption always is in behalf of the CROWN.”

—Latin Maxim, AMBIGUIS CASIBUS SEMPER PRAESUMITUR PRO REGE. Lofft, Append. 248. (Blacks 4th)

—=—

“The latter part of a wise man’s life is taken up in curing the FOLLIES, PREJUDICES, and FALSE OPINIONS he had CONTRACTED in the former.”

—Jonathan Swift, ‘Thoughts On Various Subjects, Moral & Diverting’
—=—

Cure yourself, or stand in painful prejudice and ignorance. But keep your fallacy and false opinions away from me! For your dis-ease is not medical, but contractual. And the only solution is end of contract. No really, the word solution in legalese means only one thingend of contract.

Oh, but that’s just word-smithing again…

STRAWMAN: The Real Story Of Your Artificial Person


Apologies for my absence lately in the blogosphere, and for those comments I have not read and managed yet. I am also catching up on emails and wish to thank everyone who has made donations to keep me alive, researching, writing, and hosting the daily radio show (Mon-Fri, 7pm Eastern, on republicbroadcasting.org).

That being said, I’d like to introduce my new website and that which has been taking most of my attention these days:

http://www.strawmanstory.info/

I’ve been writing this work in book-form for several years off and on, building it bit by bit, until this year when I made it my full-time project. As I have been researching and writing I am continuously learning while pouring over legal dictionaries, U.S. Code, international law, etymology sources, scripture, concordances, and other sources of ancient and hidden knowledge, from Plato to Bastiat. This fact has not and certainly will not change.

There is a point in which a researcher must bravely and with uncertain confidence finalize his writings into a utilizable form, though when this point is supposed to happen is beyond my own comprehension. For I wish not to be bound by my own misunderstandings and set-in-word errors in logic and rhetoric due to so much faulty grammar out there, as so many (most) authors certainly have. Perhaps this notion of perfection is as much an impossibility as the idea of attaining all knowledge is. Only time will tell…

Of this work I can only say one thing… that it has never been attempted before. It is being compiled so as to teach a new language, the legal language, to those who seek to comprehend that which enslaves them. The magic of words is the invisible web that entraps and enjoins us to a legal matrix of fictional things. But we are not shown or taught this authoritative, “higher” language in which true knowledge has been hidden. Instead, we are taught the common words of illiteracy. This is called public education. And it keeps us public, stealing all privacy.

One cannot simply pick up a Bible, for instance, and read it in the common tongue. It’s meaning will remain a mystery even while its Law remains highest. The common words are often quite opposite in meaning from their legal counterparts, though they appear to be the same. But the symptom of this disease causes the victims of this “vulgar” form of common communication to remain subject not only to man, but specifically to man’s creation of language terms of art. For the word common also means “goyim.”

The illusion is steadily shattered with every word uncovered, with every maxim revealed, with every Bible verse clarified, and with every lie demystified.

For the reader and as disclaimer, there will be no turning back. No more turning away from reality. No more living in ignorance. No more convenient lies. No more shirking of responsibility by blaming a fictional persona. And therefore no more legal excuses.

What is legal is not what is right.

This work will be offered in (non-commercial) book form in exchange for gifts in private donation and barter. I will be offering it in advance soon as well so that I can raise the funds to have it created (printed) in that “book” format. But it will always be offered for free as well, for no one should be without the knowledge of their own enslavement. A (.pdf) will be available to anyone unable or unwilling to offer trade or gift. The only difference between these two formats will be that the physical book-form will be indexed. At over 1,000 pages, this will be a reference book as much as anything.

Yes, 1,000+ pages… If there is one thing I have learned for certain in my many years of laboring for knowledge, it is that nothing worth learning or doing is easy. The path is narrow, and only a few will walk it. This work is designed to help light that path.

The website is temporary for now, and will be updated in the next few months as I begin to organize my tome of notes and research into a final collection. Again, thanks to those who have supported me with love and kindness, and the ability to continue this work.

If you’d like to hear what’s been happening in “The Corporation Nation” radio show, you can check out any of my 375+ shows from the last 20 months for free here:

https://corporationnationradioarchives.wordpress.com/

(Note: Search tool at bottom of page, looks like a magnifying glass)

I hope to have the “book” finished in the next few months, and I’ll set up a unique email for that purpose. I will rely on merely word of mouth and radio promotion, so please help to spread the word and share freely. Just remember I can only continue this effort with your support.

Be well…

Please Help Us Foster Gamble


Dear Mr. Gamble,

I can’t tell you how absolutely thrilled I am to finally see a mainstream figure such as yourself actually talk openly and publicly about the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report structure of government accounting. (see video below)

Now that you have bravely brought this forward, and now that you are starting to comprehend that this document is the holy grail of government accounting – showing trillions of hidden wealth and investments in perhaps the biggest open secret in history – it is time to put your money where your mouth is (with all due respect). Walter Burien and myself are the only two figures who are attempting a mass public disclosure of these financial statements. We are both the only people willing and capable of critically and correctly disclosing the information within the CAFR’s – due to the purposeful and deceitful lack of disclosure by government and by the purposeful omission that you disclose by government in your video.

I want to personally thank you for this, by the way, and can at this point only hope that you realize that this topic of government accounting as it is hidden from the public comprehension is the most important subject out there. It is directly responsible for not only the poverty in the United States and indeed globally, but for the corporate takeover/buyout and enslavement of the entire world.

I can only ask of you, man to man, to do the right thing… and to do it right. Already there are too many incorrect statements being made about the CAFR’s, like the erroneous statement by yourself that these are anything remotely close to what you referred to as “rainy day funds“. I assure you, they are not. It is of the utmost importance that we educate the people in the right way, without misinformation and without error. Only with myself, with Walter Burien in the lead position as my supervisor, can we do the job properly.

And so I am asking you for the financial support necessary to do the job right, and for your help to implement Walter Burien’s Tax Retirement Fund solution.

You have the very real opportunity to literally save the world here; to actually bring forth and re-distribute the government investment wealth to invest in cures for disease, for alternative energies, and for all of the things that will bring this world and its inhabitants into its true potential.

The ball is in your court, as is the corporate wealth…

The world has been waiting for someone like you. So what will you do, sir?
