Some thoughts on natural freedom (a.k.a. "anarchy"): 1. "It's strange, indeed, in the "Land of the Free", to constantly have the experience of telling someone I think he should be free... and him arguing with me." 2. "You become a libertarian when you realize it's wrong to hurt other people and take their stuff. You become an anarchist when you realize there are no exceptions." 3. "Anarchism is not some romantic fable, but the hardheaded realization, based on 5,000 years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners." (Edward Abbey) 4. And my favorite, from J.R.R. Tolkien: "My political opinions lean more and more to anarchy. ...The most improper job of any man is bossing other men. ... Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity." What do you think the One Ring in The Lord of the Rings was symbolic of? It's ultimate power, where the buck stops, fiat override of anything else. It's the concept of government. It's power no one needs, that no one should have, and is too much for any person to wield -- it will corrupt anyone (even, almost, two most rare and admirable humble Hobbits...). Tolkien invented the world of Middle Earth while he was fighting in trenches in World War One. While living through, being a part of, the most extreme result of fiat power. No one could understand the danger any better than him. Certainly not these pampered Ivy League kids -- these Bushes and Clintons and Trumps and Bidens -- who are always the ones holding the Ring, and deciding their wars are worth thousands of yous and mes and Tolkiens dying gruesome deaths. I agree with him. Better to cast it into the fire, and go back to the Shire. #freedom #naturalfreedom #statism #power #poweraddicts

Fear is one helluva a motivator. That is why the establishment uses it as their primary tool while social engineering manufacturing consent
