Government Biggest Rights Violator!

"A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll." CNN Poll: Majority says government a threat to citizens' rights

Libertarians have always understood that the federal government (not to mention various state and local government agencies) has been violating the rights of citizens forever.

The proper role of government is to respond to rights violations such as theft, murder, threat of imminent force, fraud, etc. Libertarians understand that any "majority rule" government initiative which is not aimed at responding to rights violation is a violation of the rights of some minority ... a dictatorship of the majority ... and is inherently immoral even if the minority is only one citizen.

No majority is ever right to force a man to live by their dreamed up government programs, as long as that man has violated the rights of no one else.

"Holy 10 Commandments! If we lived by that idea, the government would never do anything but track down and prosecute true criminals, or defend against invaders!"

Could we live with such a novel idea?

Now if for years and years and years people have been willing to allow government to run roughshod over citizen's rights, why is it that all of a sudden in 2010 people are almost "up in arms" about government violating their rights?

Is it the blossoming of years of libertarian activism?

Is it certain dangers in George W. Bush's Patriot Act?

Could it be the result of Ron Paul's 2008 Presidential run?

Might it be Obama's attempt at health insurance dictatorship?

Or are we seeing a sort of divine "perfect storm" socially. Maybe so-called "liberal progressives," who spiritually speaking are neither liberal nor progressive, are experiencing their 666 ... the last desperate attack of their humpty-dumpty ego as it teeters before falling off the wall?

Time will tell. It is fun to watch, wouldn't you say?

To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "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

The Winning Tao Of Liberty

One who follows the Liberty Way with people, 
does not use weapons to enforce his will. 
Initiating force always leads to pain and suffering. 

With the Liberty Way where armies once gathered,
briars and brambles now blossom. 

A liberty leader exercises his leadership, 
and that is all. 
If he uses force, it is not to seize for himself. 

He skillfully overcomes liberty's enemies, 
but is not proud. 
His progress might be admired, 
yet he is not boastful. 
His work may even win accolades, 
still he does not brag. He fulfills his purpose for liberty, 
because he knows he has no other choice. 

The Liberty Way is fulfilling one's purpose without using force. 
The above is a liberty interpretation of a passage from the ancient spiritual classic Tao Te Ching.  As in all spiritual works which have been venerated worldwide down through the centuries a difference is recognized between (1) the use of force by ego determination for ego purposes, and (2) the use of force in defense of the freedom to act …

How Liberty Lovers Can Assure Winning

The freedom-loving Libertarian Party has been active 46 years, yet manages to gather only a minuscule percentage of the vote. Many would say this is pathetic.

The Republican Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives heroically saves America from a disastrous re-application of the ObamaCare premise that dictatorship of people's health insurance is government's business ... a rescue effort for which they should be presenting themselves as national champions. Instead they allow themselves to be portrayed as villains. Maybe not pathetic, but a mixed bag.

It's not that freedom is no longer considered a value among Americans. It's that modern freedom lovers haven't yet learned how to win fully, completely, without limitation. Liberty lovers achieve only partial victories because we do not have a winning mindset.

To achieve complete and lasting victory liberty lovers need to transform their minds and think like winners.

To do this we must first train ourselves to …

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…
