Economic law and moral truth cannot be repealed; and they will not remain on the sidelines indefinitely. There’s no financial mystery here. Legal theft has finally run out of rope.
In 2004, Congress knew the Bush administration was planning a unilateral attack on another country. In 2004, Congress knew such planning occurred prior to September 11, 2001. In 2008, Congress continues to sanction pre-emptive murder. In 2008, I continue to ask why.
Consider the principle of non-aggression. Aggression is the initiation, or threat of initiation, of physical violence against the person or property of anyone else. Every four-year old attending pre-school gets basic instruction in recognizing and defending against aggressive behavior. They are taught that it is WRONG to use violence against another person or their property except in defense of life and property.
Why does Georgia and Gwinnett criminal justice spend so much of our hard earned tax money trying to stop some forms of self-destructive behavior, but not others?
Do you think it is appropriate to hold people accountable when they use deadly force? Is it appropriate for society to know if a particular case of deadly force was justified or not? If one neighbor kills another neighbor, I would want to know the shooting was justified. I think this is important for those of us that live that neighborhood.
How private is our property and who really controls it? When states threaten violence to those who ignore official edicts and set their own prices, states then assume partial ownership of the property being sold. We are faced with a choice between freedom or enslavement.
Individuals do not have a right to forcefully take another person’s property. In such a struggle, only the party defending against theft can claim to be just. The same is true for government. Government, or law, is simply two or more individuals combining their separate rights. Government/law is nothing more than the organized right of individuals to defend their lives and property.
I think there will be a revolt sooner or later of the American public against this disastrous crushing of the saver in order to accommodate Wall Street’s appetite for liquidity.
Politicians are dangerous creatures for they devour whatever exists to support their lifestyle at the expense of everyone else. They are aggressive carnivores for they will strip the meat from the economy right down to the bones. Unfortunately, they will continue on this path because they are incapable of admitting a mistake. Society always pays for the mistakes of its leaders. Therein lies our worst nightmare.
They [politicians] should look after their own backyard for when the economy turns down and they are caught again coddling bankers and taking bribes to stay in power, they may see significant civil unrest at home.
Money cannot be controlled by the state.
America is a pressure cooker with no steam valve, and things are about to blow. This is what happens when a parasitical government muzzles the citizenry, fences them in, herds them, brands them, whips them into submission, forces them to ante up the sweat of their brows while giving them little in return, and then provides them with little to no outlet for voicing their discontent.
The baby boom which started with so much promise when it came of age in the 1960s has ended up a colossal failure. It has turned America into a bloody imperial hegemon aboard and a bankrupt Spy State at home where financialization and the 1% thrive, half the populations lives off the state and real main street prosperity has virtually disappeared from the land.
There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil…
The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man; but only to have the law of nature for his rule.
Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary new film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.
If I take your money and give it to somebody else as a private citizen, this is called stealing and fencing of stolen goods. If I do that as a public official, it’s called social policy.
