A good sound profit... (things are not always as they seem)

Parts 1-4 of a classic episode of a classic series that seems especially relevant for the Liberty minded to consider today, in a more current context.

Sometimes a white hat has to wear black for a time, for the ultimate greater good.

Thanks Troy. I know...

...I should have chosen a better focal point for my commentary, and certainly better words than the "greater good".

That being said, to me the real story within the story is that of Big John meeting opposition from everyone in his community. One by one his friends and family turn away from him, saying in effect "I don't know you anymore, how can you do this, siding with the war mongers".

Big John could not give away his game, though, not even to wife Victoria or blood brother Buck.

They doubted his motives, but had no reason to in the end. He risked his own life to shake out the vile money master and thwart the war mongers.

I see similar doubt of some within the Liberty movement, and in my view it is quite short sighted.

thanks for the video

although the "greater good" is at the root of statist philosophy, the high chaparral certainly shows us what works and what doesn't work to accomplish his goal. the deed isn't for the greater good. it's because it works. he finds it is functional to drive them out using their own game.
