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 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?"


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…
