After Ron Paul ... Time For Jesus Christ and John Galt?

The liberty movement desperately needs those who will stop what they are doing and take time to prepare themselves for real success ... for actually creating a world of liberty.

Far too many libertarians are like people brought into the ballpark off the street to comprise a baseball team. They are unprepared. They have neither the skills nor knowledge to create the world they want, so they spend their time flailing and fumbling, sabotaging the achievement of their true goals without even a clue as to why their efforts are doomed to failure. Worse than that, many think they know so much already that their arrogance renders them unteachable.

What if you want to be different ... and make a real difference?  What if you want to do what it takes to absolutely guarantee your success in teaching a philosophy of liberty and creating liberty in the world?
 
Many say they want liberty, but how many really mean it?
 
If you are one who really means it, you will make yourself a student of Ayn Rand and Jesus Christ.

"But Jesus Christ and Ayn Rand are contradictory!"

Seems so when looking at surface appearances, doesn't it?  But in truth, far below surface appearances there are extremely important ways in which Jesus Christ and Ayn Rand are non-contradictory and mutually complementary. Yet how many are willing to look deep enough to see non-contradiction? How many of Ayn Rand's fans are willing to, for example, spend a year studying A Course in Miracles, which is Jesus Christ's revelation for the 21st Century? And how many students of A Course in Miracles would spend a year reading and studying Atlas Shrugged?

Anyone who is not willing to spend an extended amount of time digging into the depths of these two world-changing books has no business making a judgment about their compatibility or efficacy, wouldn't you say? Wouldn't you agree that the height of intellectual dishonesty would be making judgments based on surface appearances, or based on what one imagines is being taught vs. a deep understanding derived from immersion in the teaching?

You cannot successfully teach freedom to the world until you are free of self-imprisonment.  Ayn Rand correctly sensed this and endeavored to portray a man free of pain, fear, and guilt ... John Galt.  But she was never able to articulate how one is made free of pain, fear, or guilt. Neither was Rand ever able to explain the psychological dynamic which tempts one to allow such self-imprisonment. A Course in Miracles is the "how to" and explanation manual.

This is John Galt speaking:

"Who, then, fears healing? Only those to whom their brother's sacrifice and pain is seen to represent their own serenity. Their helplessness and weakness represent grounds on which they justify his pain. The constant sting of guilt he suffers serves to prove that he is slave, and they are free. The constant pain THEY suffer demonstrates that they are free BECAUSE they hold him bound. And sickness is desired to prevent a shift of balance in the sacrifice.

"There is NO compromise that you can make with guilt, and escape from the pain which ONLY guiltlessness allays. Whenever the pain of guilt seems to ATTRACT you, remember that, if you yield to it, you are deciding AGAINST your happiness, and will NOT learn how to be happy."


Actually those were the words of Jesus Christ. But they could have been John Galt's words. They are the words of one who knows how to be free of pain, fear, and guilt.

This is Jesus speaking (or is it John Galt?):

"Like all that stems from reason, the basic question is obvious, simple, and remains unasked. But think not reason could not answer it. Your path to liberation cannot be established without your will and your consent. Such would your reason tell you, if you listened. Yet if it must be so, it must exist. And, if it exists for you, and has your freedom as the purpose given it, you must be free to FIND it."

Jesus explains what John Galt perhaps would have explained in a sequel to Atlas Shrugged, what Ayn Rand obviously knew but never portrayed as fully as she might have liked: since we teach what we are ... to TEACH freedom we must BE freedom ... in every sense of the word.

Anyway, here's our guarantee: If you are willing to grasp the deep and profound lessons of these two gifts to mankind, Atlas Shrugged and A Course in Miracles...

...you cannot fail to create a world of liberty!



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…
