-liberty – noun

  • emancipation from external (as in governmental) restraint, compulsion, or interference in engaging in the pursuits or conduct of one’s choice to the extent that they are lawful and not harmful to others

“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

–Claude Frédéric Bastiat

“It is a fact that a hundred years ago only a few people anticipated the over-powering momentum which the anti-libertarian ideas were destined to acquire in a very short time. The ideal of liberty seemed to be so firmly rooted that everybody thought that no reactionary movement could ever succeed in eradicating it.”

–Ludwig von Mises

“The rights of men – that is to say, the natural rights of mankind – are indeed sacred things; and if any public measure is proved mischievously to affect them, the objection ought to be fatal to that measure, even if no charter at all could be set up against it…. Indeed… formal recognition, by the sovereign power, of an original right in the subject, can never be subverted, but by rooting up the holding radical principles of government, and even of society itself.”

–Edmund Burke

“I define anarchist society as one where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against the person or property of any individual.”

–Murray N. Rothbard

“Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find it to be an ‘inconvenience.’ We have opted instead for an authoritarian system disguised as a Democracy. We pay through the nose for an enormous joke-of-a-government, let it push us around, and then wonder how all those assholes got in there.”

-Frank Zappa

“In every language, the first word after “Mama!” that every kid learns to say is “Mine!” A system that doesn’t allow ownership, that doesn’t allow you to say “Mine!” when you grow up, has — to put it mildly – a fatal design flaw.”

-Frank Zappa

As for those possessors of all things pertaining to the current era of destructive partisan politics known as trolls… sorry, not interested. Open your damn eyes and read something other than hackery. I’ve already been there, years ago. Your tired arguments are nothing new and your wing of the cult isn’t going to correct anything. No service should be provided at the barrel of a gun; governments are not here to protect and should be abolished. Seriously, if your preference is to be led around by the nose ring by this or that pundit or talking empty head or politician, it’s your fault, not mine. Something to consider before hitting that ‘Submit Comment’ button, because once you do, it’s mine to do with as I see fit.
