63. Book Reviews
SELFHELP. by Samuel Smiles foreword by Lord Harris. It originated as talks which journalist Smiles (1812-1904) gave at evening classes in Leeds, England.
V oluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitmacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitmacy. Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends.

Jailed for Sheltering a Child from the State by Barbara Lyn Lapp and Rachel B. Lapp (reviewed by Jim Powell)
Who says issues of justice can best be resolved in legislatures and courts? Back in 1993, Child Protective Services officials charged New York welder Donald Stefan with child abuse, and his son Billy was committed to a boys' "home," although he emphatically denied that he had been abused by his father. He did testify that while subject to the government's "care," he was isolated, beaten and drugged. This book offers a dramatic account of how the Stefan family sought help and found the courageous Mennonite Lapp sisters. Inspired by their religious principles and by individualists like Lysander Spooner, Henry David Thoreau, Frederic Bastiat and Rose Wilder Lane, they did their utmost to obtain justice for the Stefans. Jailed for their efforts, they refused legal assistance and cynical plea bargainsand were ultimately vindicated.

65. Self-help - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
History. The first selfhelp book was - indeed - titled Self-Help . It was written by Samuel Smiles (1812-1904) and was published in 1859.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Though the term self-help can refer to any case whereby an individual or a group betters themselves economically, intellectually or emotionally, the connotations of the phrase have come to apply particularly to psychological or psychotherapeutic nostrums, often purveyed through the popular genre of the "self-help" book. Sometimes writers refer to a "self-help movement", though exactly what this is taken to be is not clear. Group and corporate aid for the "seeker" has also moved into the "self-help" marketplace, with LGATs and therapy systems ready with more or less pre-packaged solutions to instruct folk seeking their own individual betterment. Compare: Though remaining popular, self-help books and programs have been criticized as offering "easy answers" to difficult personal problems. According to this view, the reader or participant receives the equivalent of a placebo while the writer and publisher collect the profits. In the views of one parodist of the self-help movement, "The only way to get rich from a self-help book is to write one." (1)

Statue of Sir Walter Scott, below the Scott Monument, Princes Street, Edinburgh

"O Caledonia! stern and wild,
Meet nurse for a poetic child!
Land of brown heath and shaggy wood,
Land of the mountain and the flood,
Land of my sires! what mortal hand
Can e'er untie the filial band,
That knits me to thy rugged strand!" Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) "Oh, what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive." Perhaps you have heard this quotation and did not know who first said it? It was penned by Sir Walter Scott. Breathes there a man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself has said, This is my own, my native land! Whose heart hath ne'er within him burned, As home his footsteps he hath turned From wandering on a foreign strand! If such there be, go, mark him well; For him no Minstrel raptures swell; High though his titles, proud his name, Boundless his wealth as wish can claim; Despite those titles, power and pelf, The wretch, concentred all in self, Living, shall forfeit fair reknown, And doubly dying, shall go down

Slave Trade - Social Contract
Jump elsewhere Back to Shonghai - Slavery Forward to Social Credit - Sony SLAVE TRADE
Between 450-400BC Greece had 2 million citizens and 1 million slaves. Athens had 50,000 citizens and 100,000 slaves. After the Battle of Pydna, the Macedonians were sold as slaves in Rome. Prices ranged from $50 to $75 for males. Some female slaves were sold at $1000 each. [TTH] For centuries Arab traders rounded up slaves in tropical Africa to take them to the markets of the Near East. David Livingstone estimated that ten Negroes were killed for every six captured, and out of the six, five died. For the shipment to the Americas, slaves were packed side by side like sardines into the holds of the slave ships. Rarely more than half survived. ['World Atlas of Exploration', Eric Newby] New World
The Portuguese and Spanish were the first Europeans to use slaves in the New World. (Some Indian nations also practised slavery.) The enslavement of the indigenous peoples failed because those Indians either quickly died or escaped into familiar territory. Using Africans as slaves proved more profitable. Slavery was common in African tribes, increasing the power and wealth of tribal chiefs. So when European slave ships appeared along the African coast, chiefs were eager to barter human slaves for weapons, cloth, metal and other merchandise. Of course the civilised English also indulged in slavery. In 1619 the first African slaves were transported to the English colonies in North America. At that time they were classed with English indentured servants. It wasn't under some years later that the notorious trade triangle developed where English ships carried goods to Africa, exchanged them for slaves, cartered them to the West Indies or English colonies where they were exchanged for agricultural products such as sugar which were sold back in England.

"The very greatest thingsgreat thoughts, discoveries, inventions have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty." said Scottish writer Samuel Smiles (1812-1904). His book, Self-Help (1859) celebrated the accomplishments of successful men and was a best-seller in the Victorian age. "Obstacles don't have to stop you," said basketball great Michael Jordan . "If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

Samuel Smiles (1812 - 1904)
The political reformer and moralist was born in Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland, and was the eldest of eleven children. He left school at the age of 14 and was apprenticed to a doctor, eventually enabling him to study medicine at Edinburgh University where he campaigned for parliamentary reform and contributed articles to the Edinburgh Weekly Chronicle. He followed this with contributions to the Leeds Times and was offered editorship of the newspaper. He abandoned his work as a doctor and pursued his desire to instigate change using the Leeds Times as a platform for his views. Like his icon, Joseph Hume, his vision was radical: he was opposed to the aristocracy and worked hard to bring legislative change to factory conditions. He believed in household suffrage, the secret ballot, equal representation, short Parliaments and the abolition of the property qualification for Parliamentary candidates - all six points of the Charter. However, his sympathies for the Chartist movement were marred by his mistrust of characters like Feargus O'Connor who advocated physical force to bring about change. In May 1840 he became secretary to the Leeds Parliamentary Reform Association but his support for Chartism waned and he began to form his theory of developing the self, which eventually found expression in his book
