Yet libertarians fiddle.
Are you amazed that libertarians blab about marijuana while the economy of the entire world is crashing? Are you astounded that libertarians nit-pick about bedroom issues while the entire populace is being reduced to slavery? Many libertarians spend their time forever addressing puny little issues which (a) make them look to the public like petty teenagers, and (b) serve only to side-track the public’s thought from an infinitely more important underlying truth.
Okay, let's suppose you want to do some real good for the libertarian cause. How about addressing the one and only truly meaningful issue? Maybe a little story would illustrate what libertarians should be talking about.
One upon a time there was a society comprised of 10 individuals. Nine of them voted that their society would be better off if the tenth one was worked to death. They called it the “common good.” Before long there were only nine individuals in their society. Oh, well.
So then eight of the nine decided that for the common good almost all property of the ninth one (who was the richest) should be confiscated and redistributed among the eight who were doing the deciding. After all, that was the greatest good for the greatest number, right? Of course one day they woke up and only the eight were remaining in their society. The ninth had disappeared. Oh, well.
Then seven of the eight huddled and made a plan which would force the eighth one (who was the best producer) to work most of his time not for himself but for the huddling seven. From one of ability, to those who need. What could be more fair? Unfortunately. the eighth one finally went on strike. Threatening the eighth one didn't work. They finally had to resort to torture and solitary confinement. So there were only seven left in their society anyway. Oh, well.
The story could continue, but you get the point. The “greatest good” for a society cannot come at the expense of any individual in the society. Society as a whole can only experience its greatest good when all members of society are experiencing their own greatest good. There is no such thing as a "good of society" divorced from the good of its members.
The Obama belief that some members of the society have to be sacrificed in order for the society as a whole to experience its highest good is worse than unenlightened ... it is morally depraved and evil. But this truth must be voiced at every possible opportunity by libertarians.
In fact, the essence of libertarianism, the very definition of libertarianism, can be stated in two words: no sacrifice.
Jesus Christ throughout his revelation for the 21st century, A Course in Miracles, teaches the evil of sacrifice. Here is one excerpt:
"Be certain any answer to a problem the Holy Spirit solves will always be one in which no one loses. And this must be true because He asks no sacrifice of anyone. An answer which demands the slightest loss to anyone has not resolved the problem, but has added to it, and made it greater, harder to resolve, and more unfair." (Text Chap. 25)
Obama's crowd, so-called "Progressives," have made dishonorable political progress by repeating their mantras over and over and over again, year after year. For example, the media repeating so many millions of times that health care is broken and can only be fixed by government starts influencing even free market conservatives like Mitt Romney to disastrously toy with the idea.
Libertarians need to learn this much from Progressives- mantras work. Libertarians need to repeat week in, and week out, again and again and again and again shouting it from the mountain tops: Sacrifice is not the answer.
The world is languishing on the altar of sacrifice. Among political movements, only libertarians have the appropriate answer. But libertarians need to quit fiddling and commit themselves to not being sidetracked from the real solution.
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
