How I Found Freedom in An Unfree WorldSubmitted by retrorepublican on Thu, 08/23/2007 - 19:47
As all of us know, the Ron Paul Revolution is more than political. It affects every area of our lives - even socially and economically.
With that said, right now I am excitingly waiting for a book (yes, a book) to arrive on my door stop. The book is "How I Found Freedom in An Unfree World" by Harry Browne. Basically, it is a libertarian/conservative self-help book that advises us how to live freer lives through positive thought, better decision-making to ensure independence and personal liberty, and everyday ways of avoiding the government.
Lately, I have been getting stressed out over things not entirely in my control, such as taxes, the welfare-warfare state, deteriorating public education (I'm 16 years old), and everything else destroying my country and future - a country which I have yet to even fully experience.
Although I get out there as much as I can to advocate for Doctor Paul, I started finding it harder to relax and kick back like any other teenager. There was this fire that ignited inside of me. I felt like the minute I stopped fighting would be the minute I condemned myself. "Restlessness" is a good word.
After I found this book online, I felt incredibly relieved. I found out that this is a common thing that happens to people struggling for freer lives and societies.
As a reader notes,
"No matter whether you are young or old, male or female, married or single, I think How I Found Freedom in an Unfree Word will probably increase your understanding of how erroneous thinking causes us to restrict our own freedom. By increasing your awareness of erroneous thinking and offering you better alternatives, Harry Browne gives you a chance to make choices that will increase your freedom and happiness. Whether you want to make those choices is up to you."
I think it will help other Ron Paul supporters to read this book as well. While advocating for Ron Paul and freer government, we can start living freer lives as well. I mean how awesome does that sound!
