rhino: This is what I think is going to happenSubmitted by rhino on Wed, 09/25/2013 - 22:42
I know our future and I wish to share.
It is clear that if you graphed liberty from the beginning of time that liberty has increased over time in a roughly linear line with a modest slope.
This is good.
We are born. We live. We die.
The fact that this cycle occurs dictates a single certainty. Liberty will continue to grow.
This is a global certainty, not specific to the west. This is a recent realization. A half century ago only the west was aware of this certainty. The ripples are no longer hidden in the east. A river bank will repel ripples, but over time Newton's third law dictates erosion as a consequence.
Servitude started locally but has been forced to relinguish and rely on global force. This is the last line of defense and that, too, will crumble. It is the natural progression of things.
Nature and Markets are the same. No matter what one does and no matter the artificial delay, Nature and Markets will rule and have the final say. This is good. This means liberty will always, eventualy, win out.
A quickening has occurred because information has become free. It has become free from cost and free from toil and yet the value of information has grown. How is that possible? Supply and demand dictates that if a product becomes more valuable then it's cost and/or the effort to acquire must grow. There is a simple answer to this perceived paradigm. Supply has out-paced demand. This is good. This means that the liberty linear graph has steepened. We are becoming freer ... faster.
Doctor Paul used a christian term to describe this realization when commenting on the outcome of the Syria debate recently. He referred to it as a "miracle". As a christian myself I will not discount this, but reason can also explain this outcome. The actual supply of information right now is yet beyond our comprehension, but in a few years we will be able to look back and explain such an outcome with reason because we will understand and comprehend the supply curve in information.
There is going to be great hardship in the near future. It cannot be artificially put off for too much longer. We should embrace this. We may suffer greatly, but for those of us with children we know that this means a greater future for them. We will be known as the new "greatest generation" as the result of these hardships.
This is upon us. If it has not started yet, it is about to.
Be strong and compete and grind, because while it will be the hardest of hardships ever known to man, it will be quick.
Because I know these things to be true ...
I know that Rand Paul will be president some day soon.
