THE TIME HAS COME! TYRANNY, ANARCHY AND LIBERTARIANISM
Storming of the Bastille, July 1789
From Thomas Carlyle, Scottish essayist of the Victorian era known foremost for his widely influential work of history, The French Revolution, wrote that the French Revolution was a war against both aristocracy and anarchy:
Meanwhile, we will hate Anarchy as Death, which it is; and the things worse than Anarchy shall be hated more! Surely Peace alone is fruitful. Anarchy is destruction: a burning up, say, of Shams and Insupportabilities; but which leaves Vacancy behind. Know this also, that out of a world of Unwise nothing but an Unwisdom can be made. Arrange it, Constitution-build it, sift it through Ballot-Boxes as thou wilt, it is and remains an Unwisdom,-- the new prey of new quacks and unclean things, the latter end of it slightly better than the beginning. Who can bring a wise thing out of men unwise? Not one. And so Vacancy and general Abolition having come for this France, what can Anarchy do more? Let there be Order, were it under the Soldier's Sword; let there be Peace, that the bounty of the Heavens be not spilt; that what of Wisdom they do send us bring fruit in its season!-- It remains to be seen how the quellers of Sansculottism were themselves quelled, and sacred right of Insurrection was blown away by gunpowder: wherewith this singular eventful History called French Revolution ends.
Libertarian Socialists, including Noam Chomsky and Colin Ward argue that the term "libertarianism" is globally considered a synonym for anarchism and that the United States is unique in widely associating it with free market ideology. However, free market libertarians and mainstream sources note that such libertarians have been spreading their ideas worldwide through think tanks and political parties since the 1970s and around the world libertarianism is often thought to refer to the free market and pro-property position.
Enlightenment ideas of individual liberty, constitutionally limited government, and reliance on the institutions of civil society and a free market to promote social order and economic prosperity were the basis of what became known in the 19th century as liberalism While it kept that meaning in most of the world, modern liberalism in the United State began to take a more statist viewpoint.
Ayn Rand's international best sellers, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged and her books about her philosophy of Objectivisminfluenced modern libertarianism. For a number of years after the publication of her books, people promoting a libertarian philosophy continued to call it individualism. According to libertarian publisher Arizona United States Senator Barry Goldwater's message of individual liberty, economic freedom, and anti-communism also had a major impact on the libertarian movement, both with the publication of his book The Conscience of a Conservative Goldwater's speech writer, Karl Hess, became a leading libertarian writer and activist
According to the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, "Libertarians are committed to the belief that individuals, and not states or groups of any other kind, are both ontologically and normatively primary; that individuals have rights against certain kinds of forcible interference on the part of others; that liberty, understood as non-interference, is the only thing that can be legitimately demanded of others as a matter of legal or political right; that robust property rights and the economic liberty that follows from their consistent recognition are of central importance in respecting individual liberty; that social order is not at odds with but develops out of individual liberty; that the only proper use of coercion is defensive or to rectify an error; that governments are bound by essentially the same moral principles as individuals; and that most existing and historical governments have acted improperly insofar as they have utilized coercion for plunder, aggression, redistribution, and other purposes beyond the protection of individual liberty." *the information above is gleaned from Wikipedia."
Limits on the decisions that can be made by such majorities, such as CONSTITUTIONAL limits on the powers of Government and use of a BILL OF RIGHTS in a DEMOCRACY are commonly meant to reduce the problem.
In modern usage, a tyrant carries modern connotations of a harsh and cruel ruler who places his or her own interests or the interests of a small OLIGARPHY over the best interests of the general population which the tyrant governs or controls.
As any free thinking American knows, todays tyrants reside in the Halls of Congress and they rule over the majority of the United States Citizenry with an Iron Hand. Now is the time for the SILENT MAJORITY TO ACT.
Ayn Rand, developer of the philosophy of Objectivism asserted that a group, as such, has no rights. A man can neither acquire new rights by joining a group nor lose the rights which he does possess. The principle of individual rights is the only moral base of all groups or associations. She maintained that since only an individual man can possess rights, the expression "individual rights" is a redundancy (which one has to use for purposes of clarification in today’s intellectual chaos), but the expression "collective rights" is a contradiction in terms. Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual
President Barack Obama
From the AP, July 11, 2009.CCRA, Ghana -An American president who has "the blood of Africa within me" praised and scolded the continent of his ancestors Saturday, asserting forces of tyranny and corruption must yield if Africa is to achieve its promise.
Think for a moment, Obama is in Africa preaching to the people in hope they will recognize that they have and are living under Tyrants. Apparently he has two definitions for tyranny' one for Africa and one for the United States.
So as any independent minded American knows, Libertarianism means LIBERTY from the government and its meddling in free markets. A pro property position, not the position taken by our Supreme Court involving Kelo vs New London. The Supreme Court took the position which runs counter to the Constitution. The Constitution defines eminent domain as "the taking for Public Use", in Kelo the court defined "taking" as allowable for a "Public Purpose". T
As the time goes by a socialist agenda under Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will infringe more and more on the liberty of all Americans. These three anti-Patriots are out to destroy your life, your children's life and your grand children's life. Now is the time to make your voice heard, join up with the Tea Party groups in your area. Send a message to the socialist tyrannical politicians, that we have had enough already. REVOLUTION in the air
