Do You Believe in Freedom? by Lew Rockwell

Lew writes: "I challenge you to enter into the great struggle of history, and make sure that your days on this earth count for something truly important. It is this struggle that defines our contribution to this world. Freedom is the greatest gift that you can give yourself, and give all of humanity." Read it all please:

My name is Tony and I am writing Permaculture Republic which should be published by the end of 2010. I am writing you to tell you I thoroughly enjoyed your open letter to us people of liberty, however, I strongly encourage you to add Bill Mollison to the list of such great leaders of our movement.

Bill Mollison coined the term "Permaculture" which means permanent culture, this is the culture of a free market civilization. Permaculture is a farming method in Ecology for which the farmer can reduce his/her costs to zero without any labor involved. The whole purpose is to set up a fully self-sustaining farm. Permaculture has become so efficient we now can harvest all the energy, food, hot or cold water, materials, and shelter for a family of four to live all on a quarter acre of land.

With Permaculture debts are irrelevant, and in practice it will stem the effects of the fractional reserve banking system. The government is driving the populace into the hands of such agrarians through the carbon tax, rising consumer purchasing power, excessive credit, everything is driving towards sustainability.

In order for Austrian Economics to defeat Keynesianism we must become the system of choice for a sustainable lifestyle.

If there is anything I can do to help it would be an honor. I am young, only 23, but I am living on a farm in Costa Rica studying permaculture, I am enrolling into law school, and my plans are to build a Permaculture institute with Austrian Economics being the forefront of Permanomics.

Socialism will self-destruct somehow, whether or not that destruction will be a controlled revolution in the guise of social progress towards consolidating world markets, or it will be the decentralization of wealth back to local currencies and permaculture.

I think Austrian Economics should be the voice of the latter Mr Rockwell and unlike me, you have the influence to make your voice heard, so I urge you to make this same connection and make permaculture apart of us.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

important passage

"...That view does not account for the horrific reality that more than 100 million people were slaughtered by the state in the 20th century alone, not including its wars.

This is only the most visible cost. As Frédéric Bastiat emphasized, the enormity of the costs of the state can only be discovered in considering its unseen costs: the inventions not brought to market, the businesses not opened, the people whose lives were cut short so that they could not enjoy their full potential, the wealth not used for productive purposes but rather taxed away, the capital accumulation through savings not undertaken because the currency was destroyed and the interest rate held near zero, among an infinitely expandable list of unknowns."

I will have to agree this is the best way to analyze

how this monstrous parasitical monopoly has interfered with the destinies of millions of people.

The karma these ones have brought upon their souls will no doubt annihilate them. Natural laws are no respecter of persons only their intentions and deeds.

I don't just 'believe' in freedom, that is not good enough!

We must 'live' the liberty we were born with through the templates left us by our founders.

We must become single minded in pursuing to re-install this template once and for all.

If the democratic process fails us then we are left no choice but to break the laws that are not bona fide and Constitutional. We must be willing to go to jail for it and or die for it it need be.

That is what it means to be a freedom fighter. Fearless. Knowing death is not the end but just going home for a season. Then returning with a vengeance!

Constitutional amendment making taxes illegal.

Abolish the CIA and the Pentagon and return to the Constitution.
"State" regulated militias.
Take away the guns of the Federal government and who will pay their extortion in the form of taxes.

Thanks, for sharing this with

us. bump for others.

Thanks, Yvonne! Great article!

I like this part:
"The best and only place to start is with yourself. This is the only person that you can really control in the end. And by believing in freedom yourself, you might have made the biggest contribution to civilization you could possibly make. After that, never miss an opportunity to tell the truth. Sometimes thinking the unthinkable, saying the unsayable, teaching the unteachable, is what makes the difference between bondage and sweet liberty."
