These discussions always wind up the same way, the very few demanding everyone accept the common perception that paying money in the form of fees,
licenses, taxes etc. equals freedom. Fallacy number one, money paid to a governing body equals freedom.
Freedom is inherent in each living thing, unless they give it up for some reason. The reason people now equate freedom with anarchy is there has been
a wonderful series of perfectly timed, exquisitely exploited events that have proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that people left to their own are
evil. It never occurs to those who support fallacy number one that people are systematically taught to rely on laws, and a horrendous system of
education, to teach them to avoid their own personal sense of morality and take on that of the freedom eliminating State. If a car is no different
then a horse, we can assume that the Old West never happened as all died due to lack of regulation. Had the Old West had the millions and millions of
laws we have now it would have worked perfectly. BTW, why are we not taught in school the millions and millions of laws?
These discussions always wind up with the few demanding everyone accept that freedom is something handed out by a governing body and is in no way
inherent to a living being. Fallacy number two, governing systems, king, pope, or other give out freedom.
Folks have been educated on the notion that man is not free, but documents written by other men give them freedom, a freedom that only exists within
the confines of all the documents governing freedom. Get that, MEN give other MEN freedom? Folks are under the delusion that behavior is the same
thing as inherent right and they have taken their education to heart, demanding that folks are not really free unless their behavior is regulated as
they are nothing but behavior. Humans are NOT behavior, and behavior should be of no concern to the State unless the humans fall so far from their
true self the require a corporate fiction to control their existence and demand it - which those on earth have.
These discussions always end up with a few demanding everyone accept the idea that laws protect people and standing above or outside the law
inherently makes the world more dangerous. Fallacy number three, laws equal safety.
Laws are punitive, not preventative. Only the child, or the child mind, thinks that laws, lawyers, judges and the institution of governance stops
anything. Those systems only exact punitive/monetary damage on behavior but the acceptance of the external system as overlord of self has led all to
accept more and more control of their entire self. We now demand the governance system control thinking as the freedom to think is dangerous.
The discussions always wind up with the few demanding people just accept the obvious fact that the OTHER guy needs to have his freedoms stopped or
curbed because HE will do harm or damage to them and the others around them. Fallacy number four, restriction is for the other guy.
The human mind is so feeble minded that is believes that ALL laws, restrictions and actions taken are for the other guy. They are not, all laws and
restrictions taken are for him, personally. I repeat:
All laws are for YOU, not the other guy. It is YOU that requires the endless laws, licensees, taxes, penalties, fines, tariffs and so on, it is YOU
that is the problem, not the other guy. It is YOU that needs your thinking stopped.
The story is apt: Some time ago a test was done of a fish. The fish was placed in a tank 4 feet long. The tank was cut in half with a glass partition,
the fish swam in the truncated tank for some time. When the partition was removed, the fish stayed in the truncated area. Humans don't know what
freedom is, they've never had it, so there is no desire for it. Education and endless fear mongering has them fearing freedom. I'll say that
The human condition actually has them fearing freedom, demanding, with anger, vitriol and self righteousness that anyone at all take away their own
All of these discussions wind up the same way, with a few demanding they loose more of their personally freedom because it protects them from the
horrors of themselves.
