FOUND: “MAGA Country” Original Draft

CHICAGO, IL. According to sources within the investigation, Jussie Smollett’s original draft for January 29th’s “MAGA Country” attack performance has been found.

As has been previously reported, the embattled Empire actor originally related the performance to police when surveillance footage failed to capture the event. Audiences were then treated to a detailed interview where Smollett recounted the harrowing dialogue and skilled stunt work. This was thought to be the full story. But now, new documents reveal a troubled production full of rewrites.

Though many initially felt that the performance “felt like a first draft,” the actor’s latest production has been revealed to have undergone several revisions before it’s initial release.

Unsatisfied with the initial draft, Smollett reportedly brought in a heavy hitter to punch up the script, a common practice in Hollywood. Michael Bay, taking time off from working on an as-yet-unnamed new project, spent several days with Smollett rewriting the story.

“The big set pieces were just unworkable,” said Bay. “He was already over budget for the two principals, and then there were the props and extras, the planned pyrotechnics for the You’re Gonna Burn In Hell, Homo! scene, the dance number with dozens of Republicans dressed as hobgoblins, the bathtub full of bleach with a cackling Trump impersonator repeatedly dunking him, the travel costs, the rope for the lynching scene, I mean, Jesus, this ain’t Cleopatra, man. We had to scale it all back.”

Dialogue coach Hubert Marshall was also brought in to add extra racism and derogatory slurs. While the original draft featured such lines as “get out of here you big fairy” and “why don’t you go have sex with men somewhere else, like on your hit drama Empire on Fox, Wednesdays at 8pm 7 central,” the finished version cut down on the lengthy and rather “weak and unrealistic” dialogue.

“The original script just didn’t quite have the pop we wanted,” said Marshall. “I mean, it’s smart to get the plug in, but we needed to ramp up the racism. You know, to really reflect the average conversation between the races in Trump’s America.”

As revealed in the new documents, Smollett originally planned for the one act structure to be divided into two acts, with “an intermission where police, media, and other interested viewers could use the bathroom and get some snacks.”

Episode 117 – Incredibles 2 (1:04:59)

We don our super suits one more time and get back into the fray with Incredibles 2. Brad Bird is posing some questions here that we really enjoyed even though the movie plot has a few holes and never truly resolves.

The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world.

Helen is called on to help bring Supers back, and Bob must juggle the daily heroics of home life. But when a new villain arises with a sinister plot, the Parrs meet the challenge together!

In ‘Incredibles 2’, Helen is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life at home with Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

This is a fun, if incomplete movie that cashes in on the goodwill of the first Incredibles and rides that to 1.2 billion dollars at the box office. Plot holes aside, we take this opportunity to get into some meaty topics and have a good discussion on law vs. morality, gender roles and narratives being pushed in media and entertainment, and how the division of labor is the truly incredible thing in our world that has made it possible for billions of people to have an improved standard of living.

An Austro-libertarian reads a history book

One of the driving forces behind my attempting to learn as
much as possible is that I simply didn’t give my own education the seriousness
it deserved before attending college. In so many ways, I read and learn so as
to catch up.

However, as an Austro-libertarian, one of the challenges of
reading, say, a history book is that the author’s worldview and analytical
framework when discussing a particular subject may not jibe with my own. While I’m
always open to the possibility that I can profit from reading an author with a
different perspective, it can sometimes become difficult to glean from such works
what I should actually take away from them.

To provide a small example of what I mean, I’m currently in the process of reading Tudor England by John Guy, a British historian and biographer who currently teaches at Cambridge University. A particular passage, relating to Cardinal Wolsey’s service as Henry VIII’s Lord Chancellor from 1515 to 1529, highlighted this very challenge.

The passage in question is the following:

“… [Wolsey] attacked from star chamber[i] the abuse of private traders in civic markets, doing so in the interest of social responsibility. The ‘just price’ was still the main consideration in agricultural marketing, but traders were businessmen who, necessarily, made money at the consumer’s expense. At a stroke Wolsey hauled seventy-four provincial graziers before the Council along with dozens of London butchers, but this crackdown was not followed up – nothing happened. He also issued proclamations prohibiting profiteering in grain and enforcing traditional statutes regulating vagabonds and labourers. Yet when in 1520 six grain speculators from Buckinghamshire were reported to him for action, he referred the compliance back to the locality, being too busy to deal with it. Another swoop on traders led to one documented conviction, while only two cases were brought to Wolsey on the strength of his proclamations.”[ii]

For the most part, this passage appears to provide a relatively accurate description of Wolsey’s actions relating to curbing what he saw as market abuses. However, from an Austro-libertarian perspective, there are two aspects of the passage that are fascinating.

The first aspect is Guy’s comment that businessmen necessarily make their money at the
expense of consumers. On the one hand, it is not surprising for a scholar
specializing on Tudor England to hold the same opinion as those he studied. As
Murray Rothbard observed, Guy’s (and Wolsey’s) view was typical of
mercantilists in the sixteenth-century, who held that “in any trade, one party
can benefit only at the expense of the other—that in every transaction there is
a winner and a loser, an ‘exploiter’ and an ‘exploited.’”[iii]
In fact, such a view remains popular to this day.

However, that doesn’t mean that it is right. As Rothbard

“Both parties undertake [an] exchange because each expects to gain from it. Also, each will repeat the exchange next time (or refuse to) because his expectation has proved correct (or incorrect) in the recent past. Trade, or exchange, is engaged in precisely because both parties benefit; if they did not expect to gain, they would not agree to the exchange.”[iv]

The second fascinating aspect of the passage is Guy’s criticism of the effectiveness of Wolsey’s policy, not because it was erroneous to challenge prices derived through free trade. Rather, Guy was critical of Wolsey not following through and achieving the goal he established for himself.

What Guy appears to not recognize is that, regardless of how
aggressively a regime may enforce price limits, they never work. As Ludwig von
Mises observed:

“History is a long record of price ceilings and anti-usury laws. Again and again emperors, kings, and revolutionary dictators have tried to meddle with the market phenomena. Severe punishment was inflicted on refractory dealers and farmers. Many people fell victim to persecutions which met with the enthusiastic approval of the masses. Nonetheless, all these endeavors failed. The explanation which the writings of lawyers, theologians and philosophers provided for the failure was in full agreement with the ideas held by the rulers and the masses. Man, they said, is intrinsically selfish and sinful, and the authorities were unfortunately too lax in enforcing the law. What was needed was more firmness and peremptoriness on the part of those in power.[v]

“Economics does not say that isolated government interference with the prices of only one commodity or a few commodities is unfair, bad, or unfeasible. It says that such interference produces results contrary to its purpose, that it makes conditions worse, not better, from the point of view of the government and those backing its interference. Before the government interfered, the goods concerned were, in the eyes of the government, too dear. As a result of the maximum price their supply dwindles or disappears altogether. The government interfered because it considered these commodities especially vital, necessary, indispensable. But its action curtailed the supply available. It is therefore, from the point of view of the government, absurd and nonsensical.”[vi]

Therefore, it is no surprise whatsoever that Wolsey failed to
curtail high prices in certain goods.

Once these two aspects are addressed, an Austro-libertarian
can take this passage closer to what it is: yet another example of a state
attempting to control the prices of certain goods, only to not succeed.

and common-law judges, which supplemented the judicial activities of the
common-law and equity courts in civil and criminal matters. Wikipedia

Episode 116 – Brazil (1:00:17)

A tribute episode to our friend Lewis Liberman to discuss one of his favorite films, Terry Gilliam’s noir steampunk, “Brazil”.

A bureaucrat, in a retro-future world, tries to correct an administrative error and becomes an enemy of the state. Jonathan Pryce, Robert De Niro and Michael Palin star in this landmark cult classic about a government clerk in a future world who gets caught up in a case of mistaken identity.

It’s a movie about bureaucracy and totalitarian control with a populace of lobotomized passivity of consumerism. Mistaken identity due to a clerical error leads to government kidnapping and coverup intermixed with heroic dream sequences of saving himself from himself? Perhaps it’s all in his head. And remember, information is prosperity. Don’t suspect a friend. Report him.

There’s a “happy” version where he awakes from the nightmare with the woman he thought had died. In the director’s version discussed in this episode, the dream is the happy version in his lobotomized state of sitting in a chair with a grin as he finally escapes the horror of his world.

My brother in arms

Matthew Silber, a.k.a. “Lewis Liberman,” was the type of guy you could contact with a moment’s notice and explain, “Hey man, can I tell you about this blog I’m working on? It’s pretty radical. Uh, do you think you could come up with a compelling lead graphic by, say, tomorrow?!”

His reply was almost always without fail, “Sure. I’d love to. I have some interesting ideas.” Or “I already have a cool image that would probably work. You’re more than welcome to use it.” Or “If I tweak the wording on this old piece, I think it could be a nice fit for your story.”

Matthew passed away on February 3. He was only 41 years old. It was a total shock, as Matthew had no diagnosed illness or medical problem.

Dining out with Southern-without-apology stalwart Dr. Don Livingston (center in red tie) after the Abbeville Institute’s Secession Conference in Dallas in November, our unReconstructed posse included Matthew, Josiah, and Dawn Silber (front left) and me (back right in striped shirt). Even though that was my first and only time to meet the Silbers, they are forever in my heart – compatriots of the highest order!

As chief graphic designer and co-creator of Libertopia, Matthew was an ideas man who welcomed the big ask, but not because he was a sucker. Rather, because he was a tireless warrior for truth who knew the visual image is prime medium for pushing ideas and challenging the status quo, one colorful and thought-provoking graphic at a time.

I “met” Matthew in the Tom Woods Elite – a private Facebook group where dissidents like us get to let our freak flags fly. We’re a motley crew of snarky, intellectual, but fun-loving folks who have a penchant for free-market economics and thin-libertarianism.

It’s a “safe space” for expressing diverse opinions that fall anywhere under the very large umbrella of non-leftism. Though robust debate is a fine thing indeed, it’s always nice to stumble upon a fellow traveler who aligns overwhelmingly with your worldview – another square-peg rebel who doesn’t quite fit into any round hole.

Here’s one of Matthew’s last memes. He and I joked that we’d know Libertopia or Dissident Mama had “made it” if one of us got placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s meaningless “hate list,” which features some of our favorite non-hateful truth tellers. Maybe one day for me, brother. Maybe one day.

Sure, lots of liberty-lovers think statism is evil, but too few grasp the inevitable connection between the modern American empire and the Confederacy’s loss to the Union in 1865. Mathew got it.

Lots of anarcho-capitalists are free-thinkers, but many don’t believe in those “old” notions of Christian virtue and Southern tradition. Matthew believed.

Lots of voluntaryists are individualists, but many don’t appreciate that healthy society is comprised of collectives, which simply reflect people’s natural tendencies and desires of free association. Matthew understood.

Lots of libertarians say that flags are sky cloth and Southern statues are government icons, but too many don’t realize that Confederate symbols represent love of localism and resistance to central authority. Mathew knew.

Matthew seemed to me way more Thomas Jefferson than Ayn Rand, and this is what sparked our friendship. And once he knew I was a Southern-without-apology blogger, well, that was all it took for him to reach out.

This was the first graphic Matthew ever private messaged me, launching our year-long collaborative relationship. I also had a pretty good hunch that a guy who gives Wes Bellamy and his scary band of Blue Ridge tyrants robot eyes was also destined to become a good friend.

A voracious reader of anything Southern, Matthew had a deep library of “real” history, not the progressive garbage that passes for truth today. He wasn’t always unReconstructed, though. He was redeeming his education, relearning his heritage and roots after decades of public school and mass media indoctrination, as am I.

Matthew connected unconventional dots, revealing to him an undeniable picture that the leftist horrors we’re living through today can be traced back to Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. He could see that “Lincolnian nationalism,” as Abbeville Institute President Dr. Donald Livington coins America’s false sense of freedom and unity, is a sham.

This civic dogma grows government, spreads empire, empowers oligarchs, fosters tyranny, curtails rights, impedes state sovereignty, and destroys identity, yet it’s unquestionably accepted as American gospel by most people. But Matthew wasn’t most people.

My first Libertopia graphic, which so perfectly encapsulated my story’s theme: the perils of statism and gun control. That’s some artistic mojo right there, y’all – just brutal in honesty and effect.

“A big game changer for me was reading a book called ‘The Confederate Image’ – how the South suffered during the war because of difficulty in communicating their struggle to the world,” he wrote me.

“Same with Native Americans. How could things be different had they been able to use effective writing and graphics to persuade people to their side?”

This is what Matthew wanted to do today for the South: use eye-catching art with quick-biting rhetoric to bust false narratives and reveal true history. He wanted to rekindle through visuals Southerners’ rightful pride in their ancestral legacy and rehabilitate respect for Confederate veterans. He wanted to awaken, influence, and embolden.

Matthew knew that although many Southern folks love Dixie and hate Yankeefication, too many do not fully comprehend that their statist loyalties prop up a system which loathes them. To the Missouri native, the cause wasn’t “lost” at all, but rather, was utterly present and pressing. It was a matter of survival.

The Libertopia graphics page features this image but with a “government shutdown” theme. Matthew would often tweak the text on an image to help me out. If I needed his lunatic leftist’s hammer to read “equality” instead of “extremist hate,” he’d do it. If I asked to use one of his WWII propaganda parody posters, he’d make it even better by placing a transgender-symbol/rainbow-flag button over the swastika. No problemo.

Matthew saw clearly the fact that cultural Marxism seeks to destroy everything he held dear. That it’s an onslaught of puritanical-progressivism, just like the federal enemy his Confederate ancestors fought 150 years ago. The uniforms may be different, but the “reformers” are just the same.

He got that this is a war for home and place, and kith and kin, and that the hostilities reach even into the American church. He could see that many Christians are willing to accept leftism when it’s veiled as “social justice,” or anti-Southern or anti-white bigotry if it’s pushed as “racial reconciliation.”

So, Matthew and wife Dawn (Libertopia co-founder and wordsmith extraordinaire) homeschool their 14-year-old son Josiah, not only to impart a well-rounded, faithful, and politically incorrect education, but also to secure the blessings of liberty to their posterity. They knew history is key to understanding the nihilistic edge upon which we’re teetering.

The feature photo at top shows Matthew and Josiah flagging a highway on Confederate Flag Day 2018: Matthew with the Missouri Battle Flag (a.k.a. the Gen. Sterling Price Flag) and Josiah with a small Battle Flag. “Sometimes you just gotta stand up,” Matthew told me about this wonderful day out with his son.

Sometimes you gotta be like Frank and Jesse James, Cole Younger, Bloody Bill Anderson, William Clarke Quantrill, and the Missouri partisans, and tell the invaders to go to hell. Sometimes you gotta raise the Black Flag. Sometimes you gotta be a guerrilla.

Matthew grasped that Josiah was (and is) a battleground, for the young and impressionable are sheep for leftist wolves. So by teaching real American history, seceding from the feminized system of government schooling, setting a godly example, and passing on the tools of his trade, Matthew was on offense. And he didn’t plan on losing the war.

Father and son at their first Civil War reenactment with the 10th Missouri Dismounted Cavalry. Dawn it was nearly impossible to find a photo of Matthew without Josiah.

Matthew imparted to his son the power of graphic design and also encouraged other kids to express their bold messages visually. In fact, he and Dawn organized the Libertopia Youth Art Contest, in which my eldest son won second prize last summer.

Sure, my 11-year-old’s drawings were simple, but Matthew knew his art had heart and that fostering such nonconformist pursuits is always worthwhile. Teach ’em while they’re young, as they say.

“He always used to get after Josiah by telling him ‘go do something productive,’” Dawn said. “Matthew could never relax unless he had something of value to show for his time.”

Matthew was a workhorse who never wasted an opportunity. He was an editorial cartoonist for his local newspaper (see his publisher’s tribute) and created the Brion McClanahan Show logo (listen to Dr. McClanahan’s accolades).

My oldest son proudly displays the Lee journal he won for earning second prize in the Libertopia Youth Art Contest … in a photo I took for Matthew to use in a Hughes Camp social-media post … upon which Matthew generously added a shameless Dissident Mama plug. That’s the kinda pals we were – always helping each other out, bouncing ideas off of one another, and promoting each other’s work.

Matthew recently published his first book, the satirical “Snowflake Buddies: ABC Leftism For Kids!” (read Shotwell Publishing’s kind words). He made graphics for organizations such as the Tenth Amendment Center, the Seasteading Institute, the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) National Headquarters, and the SCV Hughes Camp, of which he was a proud member.

All of Matthew’s projects were labors of love, whether paid or not. He was shocked and thrilled when I became his first supporter on Patreon – a monetizing site he didn’t even advertise at Libertopia. He told me he didn’t feel right asking for money since he couldn’t think of anything “special” to offer patrons.

“Dude, you give so much of your stuff away for free. Certainly there are other folks who you’ve supported who will support you!” I said, urging him to seek donations from friends and fans alike. Even his Patreon goal was modest – a meager $10 a month just so he and Dawn could finally purchase the domain “”

A spot-on graphic Matthew made per my request … and in less than 24 hours! I told him the story was about a self-righteous feminist spewing false dichotomies, anti-whiteness, and misleading poverty stats – and oozing misplaced moral superiority, of course – and this “white angel” is what he came up with. Such flawless snark!

Matthew was also quite the writer, penning parody articles for Abbeville, dystopian short stories for Lew Rockwell, and blogs for Libertopia. He was webmaster for the Missouri Division of the SCV (read their memorial) and board member of his local historical society.

Matthew did anything and everything – from organizing an effort to get Tom Woods’ book “Nullification” into the hands of Missouri State legislators, to making videos for Southern compatriot Hezekiah Brown, to creating awesome graphics for little ol’ me.

Matthew and I often worked in concert. It wasn’t planned; it just happened. For example, when I reviewed “Snowflake Buddies: ABC Leftism For Kids!” he wrote a Libertopia blog post about my book review.

If I used one of his images, he’d promote my blog on social-media. Matthew even gave me a shout-out on the Johnny Rocket Launch Pad – a pretty notable podcast in libertarian circles.

But probably our most memorable cooperative effort was when Matthew designed a graphic in response to my blog Totalitarians, t-shirts, and tirades oh my! This story tackled the encroaching meddlesomeness of uptight, white-guilt-ridden, virtue-signaling homeschool moms, who deemed offensive a cute and innocent shirt made by some crafty ladies.

Sadly, these too-altruistic entrepreneurial moms caved to the PC finger-waggers and decided not to sell their tee. Matthew saw the opportunity and ran with it, quickly creating his own “Some guy in Africa” graphic and products.

It’s a little inside baseball for folks who don’t participate in Classical Conversations, but suffice it to say that whenever I shared Matthew’s replacement design in certain homeschool groups, all the right people were outraged. Matthew told me that his Libertopia store had its best single-day in sales ever during this whole “controversial t-shirt” hubbub.

Although much of Matthew’s art was humorous, his messages weren’t always comical. He was a master at using the sledgehammer of parody to smash the glass house of leftism. His satire provoked and prodded, even if that made the viewer uncomfortable or even angry.

Matthew was a live-and-let-live kinda guy, but when social institutions, academia, and media want you dead, well, you’d better damn well pick up that cross and take the narrow path. And that he did.

Matthew created this snowflake-triggering graphic and sent it with me as a joke, as it was referencing my aforementioned t-shirt blog, a more recent blog on the Covington teens, and my annual MLK Day criticisms. I encouraged him to post it in a politically incorrect homeschool group we’re both in, which he did, but I never shared it in the original CC group where the original strife took place. But perhaps in Matthew’s honor, I will do just that. I think he’d find that hysterical.

Matthew was peaceful but pissed. Not really a contrarian at all, but more of a good old-fashioned American traditionalist and a Southern gentleman. Yet in our world gone mad, those types of folks are deemed haters or bigots, which is why Matthew used an alias. He was also a humble man, routinely working in obscurity and not receiving much recognition for his work.

Providing for one’s family can be a precarious and difficult thing to pull off in our victim-obsessed times, with “aggrieved” mobs running amok, constantly doxing and destroying those who dissent to the nihilism. Most people as talented as Matthew would’ve chosen an easier life, a comfortable career, or personal glory. Not Matthew.

I feel blessed to have met the Silbers at the Abbeville conference in the fall. Paul Graham from Shotwell brought an early release of “Snowflake Buddies,” and Matthew and Dawn were obviously proud of the work and excited about what their future would hold.

After two fun-filled days of talking Dixie, secession, Dixie, and current events, the Silbers attended Divine Liturgy at St. Seraphim Orthodox Cathedral with my husband and me on Sunday. That was a big deal for us, since many Protestants wouldn’t dare enter a church filled with icons, incense, and saints’ relics.

Matthew shared this devastating graphic with me a week before he passed. He was so adept at using a single-frame image to dismantle evil that I think he really was a guerrilla artist. A true Missouri partisan fightin’ the good fight.

We rounded out our unReconstructed weekend by visiting Dealey Plaza, where we met Robert Groden, Kennedy assassination expert and author of “High Treason.” I think Matthew had actually read the conspiratorial book, as he seemed quite well-versed in multiple-shooter-ese. I shouldn’t have been surprised.

Matthew Silber was buried on Saturday with casket draped in his favorite Missouri Battle Flag. Dawn surrounded her husband with his other Southern flags, Civil War reenactor uniform, and guns, adorning him in “things that represented who he was, and still is,” she told me. The Missouri SCV provided an Honor Guard and did a graveside gun salute. A fitting ceremony for this loyal Southern son.

Matthew was not only my friend, he was my brother in arms. I hope to see him one day on the other side. Rest in peace, rebel.

If you’d like to help out Dawn and Josiah during this trying time, please make a donation through Go Fund Me. You can also purchase Matthew’s Libertopia designs at Red Bubble, his cool Southern gear at Keytesville Mercantile, or “Snowflake Buddies” through Shotwell Publishing; all creator and author profits will go to the Silber Family. Dawn hasn’t worked outside the home in 16 years, so every penny is appreciated. Let’s support and pray for the remnant.

Episode 115 – Les Misérables (1:02:43)

We are joined by special guest, Alex Hay, to sing our way through the 2012 musical version of Victor Hugo’s, “Les Miserables”.

The film takes place in France during the early 19th century and tells the story of Jean Valjean who, while being hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker’s daughter. The story reaches resolution against the background of the June Rebellion.

It’s a story of redemption for one character, and a relentless pursuit for another. There is love at first sight in the midst of a revolution that will never come.

Episode 114 – Starship Troopers (1:10:43)

A B-movie/war movie that is so over the top that it is actually an anti-war movie. Back when the left was dependably against war.

Mike C. joins us again to do his part as we discuss one of his favorite movies.

We also discuss how they acquired rights to Heinlein novel for the name and some characters, but is pretty much the opposite of the sentiment of the novel and was already written prior to said acquisition. In fact, the director couldn’t even get through the novel.

This may be one of the great troll jobs in film history.

One person who had early access to this episode gave this glowing remark:

Awesome show this week! I was just going to listen to a few minutes now and wait until Monday, but here I am having finished it. I thought it was funny that somebody referred to it as having a Saturday morning cartoony feel, and that is what I did when I woke up this morning.
