We will call him Crazy Eddie. Always he does the wrong things for excellent reasons. He does the same things over and over, and they always bring disaster, and he never learns.
When a city has grown so overlarge and crowded that it is in immediate danger of collapse, when food and clean water flow into the city at a rate just sufficient to feed every mouth, and every hand must work constantly to keep it that way, when all transportation is involved in moving vital supplies, and none is left over to move people out of the city should the need arise, then it is that Crazy Eddie leads the movers of garbage out on strike for better working conditions.

I do not wish to seem overly dramatic, but I can only conclude from the information that is available to me as Secretary-General that the members of the United Nations have perhaps ten years left in which to subordinate their ancient quarrels and launch a global partnership to curb the arms race, to improve the human environment, to defuse the population explosion and to supply the required momentum to development efforts. If such a global partnership is not forged within the next decade, then I very much fear that the problems I have mentioned will have reached such staggering proportions that they will be beyond our capacity to control.

But you do know that in the greatest wars the Earth ever had there were always more people after the war than before, no matter how many were killed. Life is not merely persistent ... life is explosive. The basic theorem of population mathematics to which there has never been found an exception is that population increases always, not merely up to extent of the food supply, but beyond it, to the minimum diet that will sustain life — the ragged edge of starvation.

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans in the finite space of a planetary ecosystem as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system but what kind of existence is possible for those who do survive.

The fourteenth amendment to the U.S. constitution provides that a citizen is subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. The dictionaries inform us that jurisdiction means power and control. So, they lied to us in the regulated government schools when they told us that the citizens control the government. The citizens don't control the government. They're under its jurisdiction. They're controlled by the government.
In the United States, there are three categories of behavior. Those categories are required behavior, prohibited behavior, and regulated behavior. If the government catches a citizen failing to engage in required behavior, then the government will punish that citizen. If the government catches a citizen engaging in prohibited behavior, then the government will punish that citizen. If the government catches a citizen engaging in regulated behavior contrary to the regulations, then the government will punish that citizen.
If a citizen refuses to submit to the punishment, then the government will initiate the use of force against that citizen, to compel him to submit to
the punishment. If he resists the use of force, then the government will escalate the use of force. If he continues to resist the use of
force, then the government will continue to escalate the use of force. It will continue to do so, without limit, until either the citizen submits to the punishment, or the citizen is dead.
In consideration of such circumstances and consequences that are inherent in citizenship in the United States, one thing is absolutely clear. Citizenship must necessarily be voluntary. If it isn't voluntary, if people are compelled to be citizens by force, fraud, deception, manipulation, misrepresentation, coercion, or by any other method, then the involuntary nature of such citizenship causes it to be indistinguishable from slavery.
Rated PC: White Males Not Admitted
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Ever since the beginning of television, uncompromising fanatics with narrow minds have done everything that they could possibly do to control what's available for us to watch. They're the same kind of sanctimonious zealots who, in the past, banned books, or burned them. Today, they enforce political correctness. The opening few seconds of DW News is a good example of how successful they've been. That video sequence, which is only about 12 seconds long, shows six views of about a dozen people. Eleven of them are non-whites or females. One person, at the right edge of the top right picture, as shown below, might possibly be a white male, but the view is so obscure that the person's race and gender are not discernable.
Regarding those pictures, I can't afford the cost of color copies for the printed version of this newsletter. Also, it has limited space. So, the pictures are grayscale, and small. Of course, if the political correctness zealots or the copyright mercenaries find this article, then there might not be any pictures at all, or maybe not even an article. At least for now, larger, full-color versions of the pictures, and the video clip from which they were taken, are available in the videos section of The Frontiersman Website, under the heading DW News.
Sometimes, when I'm annoyed by white males being marginalized on the television, I wonder if I'm being too sensitive. Then, I think about how insidious propaganda can be, and the propensity that people have for bigotry and oppression. The female supremacists, as an example, and their misandrist family courts, view white males as being nothing more than beer-swilling, deadbeat pigs, fit only to serve the needs of heroic, selfless single mothers, and their angelic children. About half of the world population is male and, in the USA, more than half of it is white. So, when I see one white male in what is ostensibly a random collection of people, of whom the other 11 are non-whites and females, I think that I'm not being too sensitive at all. I think, instead, that we'd better wonder what the female supremacists have in mind for us next. I speculated about that in Lady's Man. It's available under the heading Stories, in my personal website.
While I was writing this article, I noticed an even better example of white male exclusion. It's an advertisement for Worldchannel.org. It's even more misandrist than the DW News video clip, and far more politically correct. I'd already put the DW News pictures in the article, so I put the Worldchannel.org video clip in the videos section of The Frontiersman Website, under the heading Worldchannel.

Greetings.... I found these 7 flag stamps I thought I sent to you a while ago. I guess it's a byproduct of going blind. My rt eye nerve is dead & Glaucoma is causing high pressure in my left eye. Don't know how much time I have left but I can still see a little to be able to walk the yard.
A lot of changes are coming and 3-strikes will probably get repealed....
Take care. Hope the "stimulus" funds come through!!

Hey Sam, I got your news letter you sent me, thank you, your wild story about the lost keys incident [Time in Hyperspace, May, pages 1-2] was interesting, I've had such incidents like that....
—Howie in the Max
Hello, how are you, healthy I pray. I just got done reading the May 2021 Frontiersman your "Time in Hyperspace" [pages 1-2] caught my attention. I too have had moments where something that was in my hands only moments before, disappeared into the great beyond. One time, I was in my cell, on my bed, and I had a coax, female to female connector, I never left my bunk, and it disappeared, it has never showed up.
But an equally mysterious thing has happened to me quite a few times in my life where I was in dire need of something, and I mean, like in dire need, for what ever unexplained reason, what I needed all of a sudden was there right beside me.
Example, once I was walking in the desert, and ended up getting lost, for like 12 hours. I roamed around trying to find where I parked my car. I was very near collapse from dehydration as it was a 120º, hot Arizona day. I had the vague memory that someone told me that nothing in nature was perfectly straight, so when lost, look for straight lines in the distance, straight lines mean "man made".
Off in the distance, I saw something with straight lines, white, so I headed over to it. It turned out to be a water culvert that ran under a dirt road, so I sat on it, looked down, and an albeit dusty, unopened bottle of Gatorade was sitting right there. While I was drinking it, a truck pulled up. I told the guy how I had driven to the desert, and by my description, he drove me to where my car was parked. I had roamed over 10 miles during the heat of the day with no liquids. How the Gatorade got there, why in the middle of nowhere someone was driving, I don't know, but I've had other weird events like that happen were I can't explain. Had I not found that Gatorade, I was near death.
In your article, "Memory and Respect" [page 3], you and I have covered this before, and to take it a step further, I heard a black woman, on the show "Big Brother" say, "no lives matter until black lives matter". With a statement like that, how can division not be the only result and the real problem isn't being addressed, like you said in your article "Amiss" [page 3]. Chauvin and other gestapo thug police officers are killing over a thousand people a year by shooting unarmed victims. Rounding to the nearest quarter, last year, 225 blacks were killed, 300 Mexicans were killed, and 550 whites were killed, all unarmed, shot to death by police. People like George Floyd aren't included in those stats. He was strangled and murdered, not shot.
And Sam, as for the time discrepancy in "live" programming, I was watching "live" footage of the Gaza Strip being bombed. It was 10:40 PM at night, but the time on the "live" video showed 8:10 AM. Now, the Gaza Strip was 10 hours ahead of us, so 10:40 PM my time should have been 8:40 AM their time, so the time showing 8:10 AM means there was actually a 30 minute delay. I know all "live" TV has a delay, so, by F.C.C rules, a station has time to delete or "bleep" unacceptable language, most delays are seconds or minutes. But, I've always wondered why would the news have up to an hour delay, so they can decide what watered down lie they want to release to the public, I don't know.
Anyway, Sam, be safe and healthy. I send my prayers in abundance.

A Better Funding Plan
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Remember that idea that I had in March about big sacks of cash falling out of the sky and landing at my feet? That was a stupid idea. How can that happen when there aren't any sacks up in the sky to start with?
So, now I have a better plan. FedEx and UPS are going to start delivering big boxes of cash to me, one box each per week. Those trucks are just filled with big boxes, anyway, so the plan is completely logical. They can just give me the boxes that are filled with cash.
That plan hasn't started working yet, so I still need contributions. No checks or money orders, please. Gedunk is always welcome.
My thanks to the following: El Dorado Bob; Betty; and Eric, of Ione, California.
