My name is Mike. This is my second account on ok cupid. Liberty is not negotiable. I will not allow you to pick and choose what liberties I am entitled to enjoy. Liberty is my natural right at birth. I will not compromise away the most precious thing I posses as a human being, Liberty. There can be no compromise with freedom and government control. To accept "just a few" violations of liberty is to surrender the principle of inalienable individual rights. Likewise when there is a compromise between justice and injustice, the result is an injustice. When there is a compromise between rationality and irrationality, the result is irrational. When there is a compromise between integrity and not acting in accordance with ones convictions, the result is an act not in accordance with one's convictions. Therefore any compromise between freedom and slavery, results in slavery. If you wish to give up your liberty for safety or whatever else you think is worth that price, you are free to do so. You however have NO right to make this choice for me.
"The good of "society" has replaced the notion that the individual has a sacred right to live unmolested by government interference."
- Ron Paul
I'm a radical libertarian. I am an Anarchist. (Free Market Anarchist, Anarcho-capitalist, Individualist Anarchist, Voluntarist which ever you prefer) Not the smashes windows and loots kind, as Anarchism is generally stereotyped. Those types aren't even anarchists. I believe in non-violence and consensual interaction. I believe all human interaction should be voluntary. No exceptions. Even for those people calling themselves a government. Only the psychopaths of the world believe it's ok to shoot people to provide services. It doesn't matter what the service is you don't shoot people to build roads or to pay for schools.
Our constitutions purport to be established by ‘the people,’ and, in theory, ‘all the people’ consent to such government as the constitutions authorize. But this consent of ‘the people’ exists only in theory. It has no existence in fact. Government is in reality established by the few; and these few assume the consent of all the rest, without any such consent being actually given. And the so-called sovereigns, in these different governments, are simply the heads, or chiefs, of different bands of robbers and murderers.
That two men have no more natural right to exercise any kind of authority over one, than one has to exercise the same authority over two. A man's natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government. -- Lysander Spooner
The State! Always and ever the government and its rulers and operators have been considered above the general moral law. The "Pentagon Papers" are only one recent instance among innumerable instances in history of men, most of whom are perfectly honorable in their private lives, who lie in their teeth before the public. Why? For "reasons of State." Service to the State is supposed to excuse all actions that would be considered immoral or criminal if committed by "private" citizens. The distinctive feature of libertarians is that they coolly and uncompromisingly apply the general moral law to people acting in their roles as members of the State apparatus. Libertarians make no exceptions. For centuries, the State (or more strictly, individuals acting in their roles as "members of the government") has cloaked its criminal activity in high-sounding rhetoric. For centuries the State has committed mass murder and called it "war"; then ennobled the mass slaughter that "war" involves. For centuries the State has enslaved people into its armed battalions and called it "conscription" in the "national service." For centuries the State has robbed people at bayonet point and called it "taxation." In fact, if you wish to know how libertarians regard the State and any of its acts, simply think of the State as a criminal band, and all of the libertarian attitudes will logically fall into place. -- Murray Rothbard
"Off goes the head of the king, and tyranny gives way to freedom. The change seems abysmal. Then, bit by bit, the face of freedom hardens, and by and by it is the old face of tyranny. Then another cycle, and another. But under the play of all these opposites there is something fundamental and permanent — the basic delusion that men may be governed and yet be free."
- H. L. Mencken
As of late I've been thinking that we need to start acting in an more agorist direction, as opposed to using political means. If we are to achieve a world without coercion Agorism will lead us there.
"It doesn't seem to me that people who are serious about freedom can indulge themselves too much longer in the fantasy that freedom can be advanced through politics without the risk of doing themselves substantial hurt. Politics are the dynamic of government, government is theft and slavery, and we can achieve freedom through political action like we can achieve celibacy through rape."
