Rally Against Injustice At Tent City (Lakewood, NJ)
« on: June 03, 2014, 05:23:59 PM »

For more than a year now, I've focused most of my thought and activism on what many consider to be the "Achilles' heel" of a libertarian / free market capitalist society - what is to happen to the "bums" who fail to pull their economic weight.

On March 1st, 2013, I've moved into Tent City - a homeless camp in Lakewood, NJ that at the time was said to be the largest in North Eastern USA.  In exchange for my stay (using the camp as an agorist cover for my on-going 10+ year tax resistance), I've worked as the camp's "computer guy" - running the Web-site and Facebook Page, maintaining correspondence with supporters, keeping books, writing letters for people, etc.  A distinction should be made between the positions of this camp's leadership and my own, although the positions overlap to some degree - they want to help the homeless by any means necessary, while I reject all government help.

I've been doing a lot of thinking and some online writing / ranting about the underlying causes of homelessness, how government hurts the poor, how the free market can do better, and the Right to homestead so-called "public land".

Socialist tyrants always say, "what about the poor"?...  Tent City is living proof that government does a lot more harm than good by artificially raising the cost of living, chasing away jobs, creating resentment, and discouraging voluntary charity!

Tent City is the voluntaryist alternative to the coercive, inefficient, corrupt, immoral, tyranny-empowering racket of the Welfare State!


Now the camp's population is down below 20, compared to over 120 a year ago.  Many people in need were prevented from coming here - many ended up living under bridges, in alleyways, etc.  Most of the original population has been bribed or coerced into leaving.  Tent City is now in its final death-throws...


If by any chance anyone here happens to be in the communist cesspool of New Jersey...

Please join us at Tent City (or by the intersection of Cedar Bridge Ave and S Clover St in Lakewood) any time you can this week with signs for a Rally Against Injustice At Tent City!

We are protesting unconstitutional and inhumane anti-homeless laws, government waste and corruption, and the bulldozing of a much-needed charitable institution!


Bring a token donation (ideally bottled water) in case the police question you, as it has been legally established that supporters are NOT trespassing when they bring donations to Tent City.

Please make and bring your own protest signs. Try to have a camera to take photos and videos of the events. If you are really brave, bring a tent.

While helping the homeless, as an alternative to "public housing", our Tent City has saved the tax-victims millions!

It offers a far more efficient alternative to government shelters, with far more respect to the Rights and Liberty of the homeless.  Thanks to personal freedom, a sense of community, mutual aid, and volunteers who actually care - a homeless person can be happier in a $300/year tent than government housing that (with all the bureaucratic overhead) can cost as much as $20,000/year!  Perhaps this is why they're so obsessed with bulldozing us...

Does anyone wanna go camping on the Jersey Shore?  We got a perfect camp-site here at Tent City, located just 9 miles from the ocean, 14 miles from Six Flags!   8)

Great article by Dave Gahary of the American Free Press -- An Orthodox Final Solution --

Quote
Struggling to survive, throngs of homeless are pushed out of NJ's "Tent City" to make way for construction of massive "yeshivas" subsidized by taxpayers.

One of the more biting ironies of recession-plagued America is the drama unfolding in the suburban town of Lakewood, New Jersey, where the homeless in that Ocean County township are being forced to defend themselves not just against the elements and regular police harassment, but against the powerful Orthodox Jewish community intent on stripping the last ounce of dignity from these down-on-their-luck Americans.

With no homeless shelters in the county, under the guidance of Minister Steven A Brigham -- a 12th generation American -- the homeless took up residence in the woods, constructing homes made of canvas tarps, wood, plastic and anything else they could rummage, in what would come to be known as "Tent City". Now, almost eight years later, Tent City is on its way out, a victim of Orthodox complaints of smoke from fires the homeless use to keep warm and cook their food.

The United States Census Bureau in 2010 listed Lakewood as the fastest growing of the Garden State's 566 municipalities, primarily due to that township's Jewish majority. They now constitute the bulk of the population of over 100,000, up a whopping 54% from the last census. The Orthodox population in Lakewood is projected to rise to 220,000 by 2030.

Founded by hard-working Americans in the late 1880s, a blast-iron furnace business kick-started the town's good fortune. Several magnificent estates sprouted around town, helping Lakewood to become a favorite winter retreat for the Eastern elite, including the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Goulds, Astors and others. President Grover Cleveland would spend his dying days in the town.

In what would be a turning point for Lakewood, a Polish-born rabbi purchased a building in 1943 and erected a yeshiva, a school where Orthodox Jews study their religion's central texts, like the Talmud and Torah, to cater to 13 students. Today, the Beth Medrash Govoha yeshiva serves around 6,500 students and may be the largest of its kind in the world.

The reason for the explosive growth is simple: Orthodox Jews like to proliferate. The average family has between five and eight children.

[...]

Minister Brigham, commenting on the matter, told this reporter: "For their own political gain, the politicians are taking the food out of the mouths of the American taxpayer and setting a banquet in front of those who mock us."

As I always repeat:  This isn't about any specific ethnic / religious group.  If the Yakuza, Cosa Nostra, La Eme, etc had been acting like the Vaad, it would be just as bad.  Political power corrupts all!  Also don't mistake this as anti-natalist criticism: I am very pro-natalist!  Having lots of kids is a very good thing - if you can pull your economic weight!
