    Bounty Frontierism is an ideology combining elements from Frontierism and Kritarchy by defending a system based on the American West (frontier) during the age of Manifest Destiny, while considering justice and by extension some sort of law enforcement as the main concern of society. Just like how Capitalism belives in the good of free markets for the economy, Bounty Frontierism believes in the concept of "Free Justice" in which the judicial powers are entirely placed in the hands of individuals in the form of bounties. For example, if a person has offended a lot of people in a way or another, he is more likely to have an important bounty on his head, thus increasing the chances of him being neutralised.

    History

    Before the Civil War

    When an enslaved person ran away, they could expect to be questioned and asked to show their emancipation or manumission papers to prove that they were free by citizens or local law enforcement, who looked out for runaway slaves. Slaveowners hired people who made a living catching fugitive slaves. Since these slave catchers charged by the day and mile, many of them would travel long distances to hunt for fugitives. Slave catchers often used tracking dogs to sniff out their targets; these were called "negro dogs," and, though they could be of multiple breeds, they were typically bloodhounds.

    If a slave reached the Northern "free" states, a slave catcher's job was substantially more difficult; even if they did find the fugitive they could face resistance from anti-slavery citizens. If a slave managed to escape this far, slave owners typically sent an agent more closely connected to them, or put out notices about the escaped slave. [1]

    The Old West

    In 1873, the Supreme Court noted that bounty hunters were a part of the U.S. law enforcement system with a decision in Taylor v. Taintor :

    • "When the bail is given, the principal is regarded as delivered to the custody of his sureties. Their domain is a continuance of the original imprisonment. Whenever they choose to do so, they may seize him and deliver him up to his discharge; and if it cannot be done at once, they may imprison him until it can be done. They may exercise their rights in person or by agent. They may pursue him into another state; may arrest him on the Sabbath; and if necessary, may break and enter his house for that purpose. The seizure is not made by virtue of due process. None is needed. It is likened to the arrest by the sheriff of an escaped prisoner."

    Modern Times

    In modern times, bounty hunters are known as bail enforcement agents or fugitive recovery agents and carry out arrests mostly of those who have skipped bail or whose bail has been revoked. The term "bounty hunting" is neither often used nor liked by many in the profession, due to its historical associations.

    When undertaking arrest warrants, agents may wear bullet-resistant vests, badges, and other clothing bearing the inscription "bail enforcement agent" or similar titles. Many agents also use two-way radios to communicate with each other. Many agents arm themselves with firearms, or sometimes with less lethal weapons, such as tasers, batons, tear gas (CS gas, pepper spray) or pepper spray projectiles.

    In the United States, the National Association of Fugitive Recovery Agents is the professional association representing this industry.[2]

    Beliefs

    Frontierism

    The Frontier thesis or Turner thesis (also American frontierism), is the argument advanced by historian Frederick Jackson Turner in 1893 that American democracy was formed by the American frontier. He stressed the process—the moving frontier line—and the impact it had on pioneers going through the process. He also stressed results, especially that American democracy was the primary result, along with egalitarianism, a lack of interest in high culture, and violence. "American democracy was born of no theorist's dream; it was not carried in the Susan Constant to Virginia, nor in the Mayflower to Plymouth. It came out of the American forest, and it gained new strength each time it touched a new frontier," said Turner.

    Society

    Because of Frontierism, Bounty Frontierism also advocates for Libertarianism, Agrarianism, Nationalism, and Federalism. Values differ from person to person but generally it is economically right-centered, diplomatically left, civilly left-centered, and societally left-centered. Even if it draws inspiration from Washingtonism when it comes to the rights of bounty hunters, Bounty Frontierism does not recognize any racial theory, racist ideology or the use of slaves.

    Free Justice

    Free Justice is a concept created by Bounty Frontierism. It consists of giving the judicial powers to the whole population. With Free Justice, anyone is able to create a bounty against any person. Those bounties are generally made public on a board visible to anyone in a specific area or are directly shared to the populations by different means. This system quickly leads to the increasing value of bounties placed on troublesome members of society, as they are the most despised by everyone. Such a system leads to new economic flows which support the already existing free market supported by Bounty Frontierism. However, it is common for Bounty Frontierism to incorporate numerous elements from Plutocracy as the wealthiest indivuals can create the most important bounties thus having an important control over justice and society as a whole.

    Space Expansion

    Bounty Frontierism also draws inspiration from Anarcho-Frontierism by equally promoting space exploration with however less anarchic values. One of Bounty Frontierism's goal is to expand bounty hunting into space simply because of how fucking cool this sounds.

    Personality

    While Frontierism acts like a stereotypical, almost childish cowboy, Bounty Frontierism tries to be a lot more realistic, mature and edgy. He doesn't really care about politics in general and only potential rewards interest him, that's why he thinks his system is the best way for him to get what he wants. Because of it, you can also easily change the side he is on if you have enough money. Even if he tries to be edgy and indifferent, he still enjoys life a lot and can be quite emotional.

    How to draw

    Flag of Bounty Frontierism

    The design for Bounty Frontierism is based on the colours of Kritarchy. The central symbol which stands for Frontierism has its railroad spike replaced with the mallet of Kritarchy and an additional gavel below.

    1. Draw a ball,
    2. Fill the ball with light brown,
    3. Use brown to draw a mallet straight up and down, a lever-action rifle aiming towards the top right, a tomahawk with the head on the top left and a gavel just below the mallet,
    4. Add a cow-boy hat in deep brown,
    5. Add a revolver holster and a belt in deep brown and grey
    6. Add the eyes

    And you're done!
