Freedom

John_Heisenburg

Technically a subject of everything I share, but these are videos that deal with the principles of freedom directly.
============================

"Freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion. It does not mean freedom from the landlord, or freedom from the employer, or freedom from the laws of nature which do not provide men with automatic prosperity. It means freedom from the coercive power of the state—and nothing else."
- Ayn Rand

"In reality, our liberty is not a vague concept that we can reaffirm on occasion as it suits us. It is a choice that we make each and every day, to live in independence or in slavery. Every day is independence day."
- James Corbett

"Like it or not, everything is changing. The result will be the most wonderful experience in the history of man or the most horrible enslavement that you can imagine. Be active or abdicate. The future is in your hands."
- Milton William ("Bill") Cooper

(Trivia on the U.S Constitution. While it certainly must be defended & restored today, it is worth knowing how to came to be in order to understand the nature of "politics")

"The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were not written by, or supported by, the same people. The Declaration was almost an anarchist document, while the Constitution was openly pitched as an attempt to STRENGTHEN the central governmental power (as compared to the Articles of Confederation). In other words, the Constitution was a BETRAYAL--not a continuation--of the sentiments expressed in the Declaration. For example, while the Declaration says that the people have the right and duty to throw off any "government" that has become destructive of individual rights (which every "government" always does), the Constitution gives Congress the power to violently "suppress insurrections." (And George Washington, as the first President, did just that by terrorizing tax resistors in the Whiskey Rebellion.) The two individuals probably most responsible for the American Revolution happening--Thomas Paine and Patrick Henry--were both vehement CRITICS of the Constitution. Generally speaking, the Declaration was pro-freedom and the Constitution was anti-freedom. And lest you forget, the federalists (who pushed for the Constitution to be ratified) did NOT include the "Bill of Rights" in it originally, and tried to keep it out. They had to concede on that point as a compromise. (That's why they are "AMENDMENTS," instead of part of the main original text.) But if your favorite part of the Constitution is the Bill of Rights, keep in mind that it was ANTI-federalists--people who OPPOSED the Constitution--who pushed for that to be included."
