Libertarian Solution: Rent-a-Government

Victor Hugo once famously wrote you cannot resist an idea whose time has come. Obviously liberal-progressives (properly labeled "fascist socialists") resist libertarian ideas even beyond paranoia, as if the world would utterly burn up in flames if men and women were free to determine their own lives.

Yet the impulse to liberty is ever-present in men and women, and is powerfully promoted by the natural energies of the universe. Therefore, the last 150 years of Marxist thought has been answered in the last 50 years or so by libertarian ideas gaining ever more wide-spread prominence.

So what is the next idea whose time has come? It can't be political success in any current system because current systems depend on a desire to triumph over others, and the desire to triumph over others is antithetical to the libertarian impulse.

The next progress for libertarians may come from a new concept called "Rent-a-Government."

Socialism has run it's course. Governments everywhere ... federal governments, state governments, county governments, city governments ... are bankrupt financially (sometimes not even able to pay their bills or their employees) and leading their constituents into conditions of poverty and misery. People who feel creative impulses and want to produce prosperity for themselves and their neighbors cannot gain traction under today's systems. What alternatives do creative people have? They can stay and "go down with the ship," they can leave and "seek greener pastures," or....

They can pass the hat, ask for donations, and call for rescue.

"Who you gonna call?"

No, not Ghostbusters.

"Who you gonna call?"

"Rent-a-Government!"

Rent-a-Government is a community service organization funded by voluntary donations which provides the very most basic essential services which people want from governments ... security from local bad guys, defense against invasion from other areas, adjudication of disputes, facilitation of compensatory justice.

When your automobile is crashed maybe beyond repair, you call Rent-a-Car.  When your system of government is broken seemingly beyond fixes, you call Rent-a-Government. No politicians. No voting wars. No legislatures. No lobbyists. No greedy unions. No corruption. No hassle. Rent-a-government provides only services that are necessary and only what people can afford through voluntary donations.

Especially for smaller towns and counties which are hopelessly bankrupt, Rent-a-Government organizations are life savers in more ways than one because by using Rent-a-Government there is no taxation and no local regulations of a proactive nature.  Thus businesses are allowed to grow and prosper.  Inventors, discoverers of new processes, and entrepreneurs are attracted to the area by the promise of freedom and profit.  Increased productive activity brings renewed prosperity to everyone in the area.  Everybody breathes a sigh of relief and becomes much happier than they were under the old system.

"Who you gonna call?"

"Rent-a-Government!"



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…
