Never forget that the State is an evil violent institution that holds a monopoly on the use of violence within a given geographical region. The application of democracy to such an institution will always result in the most power-hungry, wealthy and perverted people assuming control over it. It takes wealth to run an election campaign. It takes connections between powerful interests to raise the money necessary for a campaign staff. The power of the State is custom tailored to suit the needs of business interests.
Such an institution can not be controlled through the ballot box. The wealthy can always buy the media they need to ensure their people are consistently elected to positions of power. Once in power, the State is then used as a shield to protect those to engage in evil.
The State protects billionaire bankers from charges of theft by legally handing them trillions of tax payer dollars in bailouts, grants, insurance contracts, and fractional reserve base money.
The State protects powerful child molesters by refusing to prosecute them.
The State punishes the innocent, such a pot smokers, pot dealers and hemp farmers who have never harmed anyone by their actions.

Bombshell Drops From Child Actor: “The No. 1 Problem In Hollywood Was And Is And Always Will Be Pedophilia” : Demon’s Kiss!
Corey Feldman has no idea what it’s like not to be famous. After all, he starred in a McDonald’s ad when he was just 3 years old.
“I literally was famous before I knew my own name,” he said in an interview with ABC News’ “Nightline.”
The ad led to roles in films such as “Stand By Me,” “Goonies” and “License to Drive.” He was a household name before he could read.
“I knew … to respond to Corey, but I didn’t know how to write it; I didn’t know how to spell it,” he said.
But being famous and underage, he said, caused serious damage to him and his friends, including loss of innocence and a lost childhood.
Feldman blamed the adults around him, not just those looking to profit from charming children, but also some with far more sinister motives.
“I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry. … It’s the big secret,” Feldman said.
The “casting couch,” which is the old Hollywood reference to actors being expected to offer sex for roles, applied to children, Feldman said. “Oh, yeah. Not in the same way. It’s all done under the radar,” he said.
“I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. … Didn’t even know it. It wasn’t until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted.

“There’s one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim. And that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul. And that person needs to be exposed, but, unfortunately, I can’t be the one to do it,” Feldman said, adding that he, too, had been sexually abused by men in show business.
Feldman said his realization followed the discovery of what some adults around him had allegedly done to other children. “There was a circle of older men … around this group of kids. And they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry,” he said.
Feldman admitted that Haim struggled with addiction but said it was a mechanism to cope with his demons. “It was a symptom,” he said.
In their 2008 reality TV show, “The Two Coreys,” Feldman and Haim confronted each other on their dark past.
“[T]here’s a lot of good people in this industry, but there’s also a lot of really, really sick, corrupt people. And there are people … who have gotten away with it for so long that they feel they’re above the law, and that’s got to change,” Feldman said.
Corey Haim’s mother said in an email to ABC News, “I am not willing to discuss or respond to anything Corey Feldman has to say. He shouldn’t be talking about my kid. I wish he would talk about himself only and leave my son out of it.”
“I’ve never heard that one about Corey Haim,” Snyder said, referring to Feldman’s new allegation.
Snyder said for most child stars, parents are the biggest potential problem. Many child performers don’t want to do it, but the parents want them to, he said.
“The biggest problem … is when the parents start to live through the kids and quit their jobs, and buy expensive houses, buy expensive cars,” Snyder said. “And the parents aren’t understanding it’s not going to go on forever. And it just wrecks everything.”
Corey Feldman Says He’d Never Want Stardom for His Son
Feldman’s parents managed his career until money came between them and the young star.
“I got legally emancipated by going to the [Screen Actors Guild] producers pension, health and welfare plan myself at 14 years old and saying, ‘What were my earnings, and what’s left?’” Feldman said.
He said he was told he had earned about $1 million, “which is really not that much money, but in those days it was,” and $40,000 was left.
“And guess what? When I went in for the emancipation trial, my father said, ‘Since I spent my time with you on your last film and took it away from my office where I should have been focused, instead I’m going to ask you for that $40,000 back as repayment for the money that I lost in my business,’” Feldman said.
He had to pay his father, he said, putting him in debt at the age of 15.
Court records of the trial are sealed. In a statement to ABC News Feldman’s father said, “I love my son with all my heart however his lifestyle has impaired his memory. I opposed his emancipation because he was not mature enough to face life in the world of show business. I feel the court made a mistake in allowing him to be on his own and out of control. Any money that the court awarded is a fraction of his claim and this was reimbursement for strictly professional expenses since after Corey’s Mom and I separated she received Corey’s income and I ended up with his expenses, ie: private school, a publicist, professional wardrobe, traveling expenses and lots more. This helped to save his career while he was in trouble with drug problems. I thought I was doing the best for my son and I am always here for him.”
Being underage and famous is not a dream Feldman has for his son, he said, and unlike many famous parents, he doesn’t walk the red carpet with him.
“Child stars have nothing,” he said. “They have no choice. … I was never taught how to have a family. I was never taught how to raise a child, because I wasn’t raised properly. I was never taught how to care for somebody, because I was never shown genuine love.”
“I knew how to read a contract by 10 years old, but I didn’t know what it meant for somebody to come in and tell me they loved me and kiss me goodnight,” Feldman added. “That’s a problem.”
As more homosexual and/or pedophile priest scandals selectively air on media across Europe, we should be ashamed of the offenders and those who sheltered them and oppressed the victims. The guilty should be weeded out, removed from office and handed over to the civil authorities where they are guilty of crimes. Systems to avoid abuse must be established and rigorously maintained, and victims should be justly compensated for their suffering.
However, Penn State professor Philip Jenkins (who is not a Catholic) has written the most objective book on the subject, and he summarizes his arguments in this excellent article. In light of his work, we should remember some basic facts and principles:
Priestly celibacy is not the issue – married men are more likely to abuse children than unmarried
Most child abuse takes place within the home.
All religious groups have pedophile scandals, and the Catholics (while the largest religious group) are at the bottom of the list statistically.
Child abuse is prevalent in all areas of society: schools, youth organizations, sports, etc.
Statistically, of all the professions, Christian clergy are least likely to offend. Doctors, Farmers and Teachers are the professions most likely to abuse children–not clergy.
Among clergy offenders Catholic priests are least likely to offend.
Catholic cases of pedophilia make more headlines because of anti Catholic prejudice and because the Catholic Church is bigger and more lucractive to sue.
Pedophilia and Euphebophilia are different problems. The former is sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children. The latter is attraction to teenagers. Most cases branded ‘pedophila’ are actually ‘euphebophila.’
Most of the cases of euphebophilia are homosexual in nature, however the politically correct do not want this problem to be associated with homosexuality.
The number of Catholic priests guilty of pedophilia is very small.
What we now call ‘cover up’ was often done in a different cultural context, when the problem was not fully understood and when all establishment organizations hushed scandals. They did so for what seemed good reasons at the time: protection of the victims and their families, opportunity for rehabilitation of the offender, the avoidance of scandal to others. It is unfair to judge events thirty years ago by today’s standards.
When lawsuits are looming people smell money. We must be wary of false accusations.
The accused must be entitled to a fair hearing. The church should insist on hard proof of the abuse, and for the sake of justice, ensure that the innocent are not prosecuted.
When guilt is established the offender must be punished, not sheltered.
Distinctions must be made between types of abuse. Some offenses are worse than others. Verbal abuse or corporal punishment during a time when that was acceptable, while lamentable, is not the same as sexual abuse or extreme physical abuse.
Sexual abuse of an adult, or a sexually experienced older teenager is wrong, and damaging, and should be punished, but it is not the same as the sexual abuse of a younger, innocent child.
Number of offenses must be considered. One lapse is not of the same seriousness as repeated, persistent and premeditated offenses.
I am in no way wishing to be soft of pedophiles and those who covered for them, however justice and truth demand an objective analysis of the facts.
