Government Remains Prime Enemy of Liberty

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

House Rejects Bill to Give Patients a ‘Right to Try’ Experimental Drugs:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/13/us/politics/house-rejects-right-to-try-bill.html

(In a surprising rebuff to President Trump and Republican leaders, the House derailed a bill on Tuesday that would have given patients with terminal illnesses a right to try unproven experimental treatments.

The bill was considered under special fast-track procedures that required a two-thirds majority for passage, and it fell short. When the roll was called, 259 House members supported the bill, and 140 opposed it.

Most of the opposition came from Democrats, who said the bill gave false hope to patients and could actually endanger people dying of incurable diseases, because it would undermine protections provided by the Food and Drug Administration.

My Commentary: All current “drug laws” are predicated upon the assumption that the State owns your body…

Multiple Studies Reveal the Truth that Human Beings Are Naturally Compassionate and Cooperative

The following debate originally took place here, upon the Facebook page, “Living in Modern Times“…

Living in Modern Times:

"10 Things to Use to Make You a Better Human 1. Self Ownership 2. Natural Law 3. The Non-Aggression Principle 4. Consent 5. Using Conscience at All Times 6. All Interactions Must be Voluntary 7. Only Self Authority is Inherent to Humans 8. Truth & Freedom Come Before Family Obligations 9. Positive Rights Are Not Inherent to Humans 10. No Ruling Class, Society, & Collective Can Provide 'Justice,' 'Morality,' or Protection, as These Are Owned, Individually"

“10 Things to Use to Make You a Better Human
1. Self Ownership
2. Natural Law
3. The Non-Aggression Principle
4. Consent
5. Using Conscience at All Times
6. All Interactions Must be Voluntary
7. Only Self Authority is Inherent to Humans
8. Truth & Freedom Come Before Family Obligations
9. Positive Rights Are Not Inherent to Humans
10. No Ruling Class, Society, & Collective Can Provide ‘Justice,’ ‘Morality,’ or Protection, as These Are Owned, Individually”

Joseph H.: Fine on,paper but won’t work,in reality. You don’t understand the universal nature of evil.

Living in Modern Times: oh? please explain the universal nature of evil, Joseph H.

Jeff R.: You don’t understand the universal nature of good.

Joseph H.: Everyone is sinful and everyone is capable of evil. Radicals always make the same basic, fatal mistake. They want to overturn an established flawed
order and replace it with What they think is a utopia. They don’t see that
they are subject to the same faults as the rulers they replaced. It happened in the French Revolution and in the Russian Revolution. A bloody, sadistic regime replaced a long established monarchy. Power corrupts and unless you have something to balance that, you’ll be corrupt too.

Rayn: Reality does not tend to agree with the highly cynical notion that humanity needs to be ruled over by morally-bankrupt criminal scum. And, the Statists currently denying our natural right to live, to own ourselves, and to peacefully co-exist are simply those who wish to violate them, by way of robbery, slavery and/or murder – either directly, or through violent, coercive proxy (church, state, etc). This is typically done while espousing the usual brand of illogical superstition, replete with “original sin/presumed guilt/pre-crime/chaos” myth about the inherent “evil/cruelty/disorder” of humanity.

Of course, I reject such cult-like nonsense, as it is absolutely illegitimate. Not only have I personally met more kind and caring souls than I can count, I also recognize every human being as a UNIQUE, SOVEREIGN INDIVIDUAL – to be judged ONLY by the merits of their OWN character! As far as I’m concerned, assigning humanity with labels fit for criminals is merely an excuse for the corrupt and polluted souls among us to collectively oppress and punish us all for crimes we haven’t even committed, in an effort to catch a boogie man that lives no further than the nearest MIRROR! Besides, biology, itself, does NOT support the “freedom is slavery” double-think mentality of such control-freaks, no matter how many clever excuses they come up with in order to justify their lust to harm and enslave others:

The Average Statist Constantly Flip-Flops, and Only Places Any Major Passion and Conviction into Horizontal Enforcement of Their More Freedom-Minded Peers

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Liberty Memes,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"'This is a REVOLUTION. A revolution of the PEOPLE. No long are we going to bow down to the 15 and the two-party syste...' Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton"

“‘This is a REVOLUTION. A revolution of the PEOPLE. No long are we going to bow down to the 15 and the two-party syste…’
Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton”

My Commentary: Yup… That’s about the exact level of passion and conviction that guides the average Statist… *sigh*

You should see how much effort they put into HORIZONTAL ENFORCEMENT of those who advocate for human self-ownership over life-long enslavement within this corrupt “legal” system, though! Now, THAT’S where their dedication really shines through! They have perfected the art of defeatism and cowardice!

“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” – Frederick Douglass

Without a Hint of Irony, Statists Believe “Freedom is Slavery”

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Anarchy, Natural Law, Truth and Freedom.,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“It seems strange that any thinking human being would not be naturally open and receptive to the idea that he owns himself and should be in charge of his own life, unhindered by any human ‘authority.’ However, the average person who hears such a message often lashes out at the messenger, insists that actual freedom, a world without masters and subjects, would mean chaos and destruction, and then vehemently advocates the continued enslavement of all of mankind, including himself.” – Larken Rose

My Commentary: Debate a Statist about government, and you’ll soon discover that they truly believe “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.”
