One of the most prolific writers is Walter Williams, a professor of economics at George Mason University, and one of my favorite people to read. If one has any interest in understanding the Philosophy of Freedom, I highly suggest reading anything by Walter Williams.
Here’s a quote from him: “People want government to do all manner of things, things if done privately would lead to condemnation and jail sentences. Some want government to give money to farmers, poor folk, college students and businesses. There’s no tooth fairy nor Santa Claus. The only way government can give money to any one person is to forcibly take it from another person. If I privately used the same method to raise money for a “deserving” college student, homeless person or businessman, I’d face theft charges. Others among us want government to protect wild wolves, bears and the Stephens kangaroo rat, even if it results in gross violations of private property and loss of lives.
The problem is that some people disagree with having their earnings taken to satisfy someone else’s wishes. They don’t want the Corp of Engineers and Fish and Wildlife Service dictating to them what they can and cannot do with their property to insure a habitat for the kangaroo rat. Threat and force must be used. Here’s the question. Could the average American kill a person who resolutely refuses to give up his earnings so Congress can give to Farmers. Could you kill a person who insists on using all of his property, even though some wolves have set up a den on it? You say, “What do you mean -Williams—Kill?” Here’s the scenario. The Corp of Engineers commands me not to remove debris from a drainage ditch on my property, placed there by beavers building a dam, because the debris creates a wetland. I remove it anyway. The Corps of Engineers fines me. I refuse to pay the unjust fine. The Corps of Engineers threatens to seize my land.”
There you have it. A short basic understanding of the meaning of Freedom.To truly understand Freedom, it’s imperative one understand the economics of it, and the meaning of property ownership. And Walter Williams presents a brief, easy to understand of property ownership concept.
Because the majority in this country have rejected the self-responsibility required to be free in exchange for the System of Socialism, here’s what the father of the Communist brand of Socialism, Karl Marx said: “The Theory of Communism can be summed up in three words, “Abolish all Private Property.”
I would highly recommend copying this quote by Walter Williams, and re-read until you get it. Pass it on to your public school indoctrinated child, to understand, because school children are not receiving this kind of education, in the Socialist tax supported public school system.
If we are to have any hopes of re-claiming and returning this country to the Principles upon which it was founded, it is imperative to understand Freedom, and the concept of Private property ownership. A description, Professor Walter Williams so eloquently explains, in terms a child can understand.
If I had a child in the school system today, I would attach his quote to the refrigerator door, for my child to read over and over until he understood it and accepted it as Truth.
Let FREEDOM RING
Just me AC
