Liberty found dead. Starvation likely cause.

Liberty was found dead today by an unsuspecting acquaintance who stopped by for a visit. There are indications that Liberty had died of starvation. Liberty had fallen out of favor by those who had known her for reasons unknown. It seems that most of those who once were counted as her friends had been courted by her neighbor, Welfare. Although Liberty would always entertain any who would listen with high ideals and would always encourage everyone to find and obtain their maximum potential, Welfare would lure most of them away with her constant parties where free drinks and generous prizes were offered. Of late, few had seen Liberty and the few who had indicated they saw her wasting away from neglect. It is unknown how long Liberty lay dead before discovery, but the decay indicated that it had been a very long time.

Rest in peace Liberty, those few who miss you will be preserving your DNA for possible cloning when such technology becomes available.

For those interested, Welfare is having a large party next door with free drinks and even more generous prizes...

Jews did it?

While I certainly have no problem in pointing out how Zionism has a part in minimizing liberty, not all Jews are Zionists and indeed, most Jews are every bit as much a victim of those powerful men (only some of whom are Jewish) as we are. There are many confused people in the world who do not understand the difference between the political viewpoint of "Zionism" and the term "Jewish" which could either refer to a religious belief or a genetic bloodline of the human variety. I prefer to use only three groups for people: Those who understand Liberty for all, those who wish to restrict Liberty, and those who have not even considered the issue.

This is a DP Original.

Why is this not showing up under DP Originals? I gave it over 24 hours in case it needed some "update" to log the tag, but it still isn't there. Sometimes this board really confuses my poor little brain...

CA,

Top voted enter Originals. (It is stated in the selection box when you make a post, next to the DP Original choice)

I guess I just don't see it. When I go back to edit I see Subject, Forums, State, Helpful Tags: (where I choose DP Original) and Body. Don't see anything there about being top voted. I assumed that they were just showing the newest DP Originals. This is why I've had such a hard time getting started on this board. It's confusing for me. The RPF is more like a standard BBS and being old-school I just find that easier to get around and find things...

Thanks for the information. Now I know.

There should be a one sentence line of text that

pops up or appears to the right of the DP Original option when you hover your mouse over it.

Either way, When I threw you my plus vote to help, it put you there. It was the last one you needed. It's at the bottom though because of the age of the post, so it may roll to the next page of DP Originals before you see this. (Click the little side to side arrows up there in the originals box if you don't see it.

Hope all of this helps a bit.

Seems they were stealing electricity from liberty.

As long as they are

As long as they are "peaceful" they will not have to go to the camps. When they start to starve, then the trouble will start.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I share some pessimism but

Liberty will never die. We ourselves must improve our ideological position. Ron Paul and von Mises institute did a great job teaching us basics. Now we have to incorporate the missing part - teaching of Ayn Rand.

If von Mises looked at capitalism from pure utilitarian prospective, Ron Paul echoed conventional wisdom of the founding fathers - "natural rights come from god or nature." Rothbard, after he was expelled from Ayn Rand circle for plagiarizing, did not advance Libertarian idea besides "natural rights are a Libertarian axiom." Thereafter, Block, Hoppe, Stefe M and others detached themselves from reality and focused on "non agression" magic that lead them to anarchy.

According to Ayn Rand, natural rights come from REASON. Unreasonable people cannot build or maintain free society no matter what religious or humanistic morals they adapt or what drug they smoke. Only majority equipped with rational morality can.

hey

Can you reach in there and correct the grammar and lack of punctuation. It is a great piece that should be mastered. IMHO. He won't mind. Don't ask me to correct it.

ChristianAnarchist's picture

Help w/grammar?

Grammar was never my strong point. Maybe you (or someone) can correct it for me and I will make the changes. Thanks.
