The Phenomenon of the Positive LibertarianSubmitted by phantasm on Tue, 02/11/2014 - 00:25
Alex Jones punched me right in the jaw. I deserved it. I was angry, I was sad, I was pessimistic, and I was miserable. I was a negative libertarian. My motivations were distrust and fear. My motto was "distrust everyone". I saw the truth as best I could within my limited capacity. I saw the truth from a pit. The details mattered. A dark man in a dark world can only rearrange the darkness. It is Law.
Dr. Paul handed me a rose. I did not deserve it. Today I'm joyful, happy, optimistic, and content. I am a positive libertarian. My motivations are trust and love. My motto is "trust yourself and your brothers and sisters". I see the truth as best I can within my limited capacity. I see the truth from a cloud. The details matter less and less. A bright man in a dark world dissipates the darkness. It is Law.
The truth never changed. My vantage point changed.
Some have arrived before me. Some have arrived with me. May the rest of us arrive until the light is blinding.
An Olde Irish Blessing to all:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
