Real Heroes of the Forgotten Man: Libertarians

If "libertarianism" means anything, it means abandonment now and always of government attempts to better the lives of citizens economically.

In the news: 263,000 jobs lost in September; jobless rate 9.8%

The Obama Administration is following exactly the same steps as the Roosevelt Administration took in the 1930s: attempting to "cure" an economic recession by vast government expenditures to fund utopian "welfare" programs. Just as in the 1930s, insane government spending is deepening the recession into a depression. Increasingly Americans find themselves at the mercy of a government elite who know not what they do.

Government by so-called "Progressives" can only be regressive, can only create more poverty than ever, can only lead to citizen-slaves going through the motions and feeling their spirit only in forbidden black markets, can only lead to martial law and slavery to government. Just as human beings were not born to live under water like fish or to fly from treetop to treetop like birds, so it is not and can never be a proper function of governments to provide for the economic welfare of people.

Libertarians say "No!" to the welfare state if it means the state telling people how they must live and robbing people of the opportunity to learn how to survive and thrive through lessons they create for themselves.

Libertarians are grounded in natural law, not man-made law. They see that human beings find it necessary to form governments for one and only one reason: to hold up before them reminders of the laws given by God (or by "common sense" if you consider yourself an atheist). People cannot live together in peace if they are allowed to murder each other, steal from each other, bear false witness (lie about each other), defraud each other, etc. The highest good for everyone is served only when men and women live by a "rule of law," but not just any law; not man-made law stiffling spirit in the hopes of lessening material challenges.

Amity Shlaes illustrates how stary-eyed communist sympathizers ruled during the Roosevelt Administration and would have wrecked the American economy forever had it not been for a few heroic men and women who said "No!" to an American fascism masquerading under the label "Progressive." Her book, The Forgotton Man, is a must read.

a socialist governmental system led by a dominant party which seeks to control industry and commerce, and uses legislation and governmental decree to force Utopian programs on people.

one's natural state of being; a governmental system reflecting one's natural state, including voluntary funding and voluntary willingness to join and cooperate with some rules, but with no restrictions forced on people.

If you are just waking up to your innate libertarian side and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of Obama's religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, Atlas Shrugged

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

For the last election year studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
