No choice

I can’t be anything other than Abolitionist/Voluntaryist/Anarchist/libertarian (AVAL). I don’t really have a choice- like I have no choice but to accept gravity. Reality is what it is.

It really is like taking the red pill- if you really absorb it. I know there are all these “formers” out there, but I have yet to encounter one who really understood what it was he “used to be”. This is exposed quickly by any conversation with them. The “former” may have been a statist-lite, who then decided to bring more statism back into his life, but he couldn’t have understood liberty and human rights.

So, regardless of anything else, without accounting for brain damage, I will never stop being an advocate of Rightful Liberty.

That doesn’t mean I’ll always be so vocal about it. You never know where life will take you. Some days I feel defeated and tired. Some days I think I need to give up and go somewhere else with my life. Recently this has been a real struggle for me, due to several different problems and pressures.

Maybe someday I’ll stop speaking about liberty, but truth with still be true. Forever.

And today is NOT that “someday”.

    It is a trade off; the value of liberty and freedom vs comfort and conformity, rationalized by a standard value of conflicting principles. They cannot see government for what it really is because they deny the values and principles of Libertarianism.

    If you see government as anything other than a big violent gang, you missed something. It operates on the same principles as gang rape and extortion syndicates. It uses a great big mechanism full of people in suits saying magic words with endless stacks of bullshit on paper and armed henchmen to do it, but but is principally no different. At it's principle core, it is still a group of people organizing to violate others.

    Government is unethical.
