About Your Free Lunch

What is the FLP?

Pronounced “FLOP”, the FLP is a Universal agreement among all to demand social justice, a one-world governance, and “Dependence in Our Lifetime.” Help us “Remove the Trigger”! Also, FLP is a parody. Satire too. So, calm down.


There is no newsletter. That would require effort. We’re busy eating our Free Lunch (or standing in line waiting for lunch). We’d hire you, but we don’t have any money. You should know that Capitalism is evil. Seriously?

Price We Pay

Building roads (and other infrastructure…physical, social, and spiritual) is a complicated and very tedious endeavor. It requires miles of bureaucratic red tape and inordinate amounts of unionized labor. Pay your share. Follow all rules. Responsible citizenship over individuals. This is a little dark…

Magical Thought

The Universe is providing. It’s sort of like Economics, only, there’s a magical money tree of sorts. Just imagine it, and it will appear. Either that, or the government will step in and provide education, housing, childcare, food, and transportation for you. If you don’t like what you get, you get camp! Re-education camp!


(1) The Two Types of Democracy, Liberal and Totalitarian

The essential difference between the two schools of democratic thought as they have evolved is not, as is often alleged, in the affirmation of the value of liberty by one, and its denial by the other. It is in their different attitude to politics. The liberal approach assumes politics to be a matter of trial and error, and regards political systems as pragmatic contrivances of human ingenuity and spontaneity. It also recognizes a variety of levels of personal and collective endeavour, which are altogether outside the sphere of politics.

The totalitarian democratic school, on the other hand, is based upon the assumption of a sole and exclusive truth in politics. It may be called political Messianism in the sense that it postulates a preordained, harmonious and perfect scheme of things, to which men are irresistibly driven, and at which they are bound to arrive. It recognizes ultimately only one plane of existence, the political. It widens the scope of politics to embrace the whole of human existence. It treats all human thought and action as having social significance, and therefore as falling within the orbit of political action. Its political ideas are not a set of pragmatic precepts or a body of devices applicable to a special branch of human endeavour. They are an integral part of an all-embracing and coherent philosophy. Politics is defined as the art of applying this philosophy to the organization of society, and the final purpose of politics is only achieved when this philosophy reigns supreme over all fields of life.
