Well, I .. I don’t use the word ‘belief’, because I don’t use the concept of ‘faith’, or the concept of ‘justification’. So I would instead, say “this is my understanding, or this is history as I understand it, or these are my understandings.”

(I will explain some other time why resource and opportunity scarcity and lack of agency attract ‘beliefs’ and why resource and opportunity plenty and possession of agency attract ‘understandings’. Or you can ponder that on your own.)

Let’s, for the sake of argument, say that:

1. my work consists of completing that thing we call the scientific method, and systematically applying it to the entire scope of human knowledge.

2. My ambition is to eliminate the propagation of falsehoods in the commons – particularly given that we’ve industrialized lying during the past century, and that this means of lying has been designed to undermine our civilization just as were judaism, christianity, and islam in the ancient world, and marxism, boazianism, freudianism, and Frankfurt and postmodern schools in the modern world.

3. my understanding of history is that western civilization evolved not first but fastest because we required a militia in our territory, and as a byproduct of organizing a militia, discovered what we think of today as scientific (or I call ‘testimonial’) truth – and as a consequence, markets in every aspect of life.

4. The rest of my work explains how to evolve our traditional system away from a second dark age, and continue the process of dragging humanity kicking and screaming out of ignorance, superstition, poverty, disease, and lack of agency.

In historical context, let’s just say that almost all of the world is only partly through the scientific revolution, and that this will help humanity with understanding the ‘rest of the way’.

ITS ALL AVAILABLE
If you want an understanding of propertarianism, believe it or not, ‘its all there for the taking’.

See …

And if you read ….

https://propertarianism.com/2016/01/05/an-overview-of-propertarianism-for-serious-newbies/

… which includes a description of history and western civilization’s unique place in it.

Then you will have a basic understanding. But this is like learning any other discipline – and is very close to learning a mixture of programming and law.

The technical part is quite difficult. But you don’t need to understand it. All you need to understand is that small homogenous nationalist polities operating under what I call ‘perfect government’ will produce the desires of socialists, libertarians, and aristocrats, without providing any of the m with a monopoly that allows them to live parasitically upon the others.
