What Does 'Sovereignty of the Individual' Mean, Exactly?Submitted by Anisha on Wed, 02/11/2009 - 19:29
Oh sure, its good to be aware of how we got to be in this mess and who are all those deviants of sovereignty who work cunningly with endless cash at their disposal to ensure their monopolies. Many Daily Paul posters have educated each other on these things. All very well.
I found a quote that I feel may be a good segue into the discussion of 'Sovereignty'.
I believe whoever wrote these words did some serious thinking about what 'freedom of the Individual' really means intrinsically, and is at the crux of where we are now at in our struggle here in United States of America and the world at large.
"As no single individual man has any natural authority to command another man to service, it is not reasonably possible for such men to imbue any government they create with authority the men don't individually naturally possess.
As no individual man has any authority to command another to pay taxes, it is not possible for any government such men create to properly be imbued by them with the authority to tax!
Taxation and freedom cannot exist in the same society - where taxation is used to fund government a police state is immediately in operation!! A government of a free people cannot be given the authority to decide how much money it needs nor to decide where such money shall come from.
Freedom means each individual man and woman is individually free. Freedom is individual, freedom is NOT a group event!! "
Well people, could this be our new LITMUS test?
Keep in mind what Einstein says,
"Employing the same failed means to solve the same problem and expecting a different outcome - is the very definition of STUPIDITY!!"
