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 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…
