For the last 5 years I have been leisurely studying philosophical and psychological stories from old European authors such as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Gulag Archipelago), Fyodor Dostoyevski (Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov), and Friedrich Nietzsche (Beyond Good and Evil) as I was interested in their time period and style in Europe. The first wrote about the atrocities occurring in the Soviet Union and the latter 2 informed us as to how and why it would happen. Simultaneously I read the Bible more thoroughly than I have before with a new understanding of some of the worst atrocities man can commit. Imprisonment, Starvation, Brutalization, Enslavement, and Cultural Enforced Hysteria/Spying. The stories within the Bible made much more sense now revealing a value structure that was in stark contrast to those embodied in the tragic stories above. I had come to a realization that this book was more than stories for entertainment but a cultural artifact documenting human psychology and the fallen nature of man through narrative over thousands of years by those who came before us.
The Fallen Nature Of Man
The fallability of the individual is exactly why centralized/federal power is so deadly, the few cannot have the circumstantial information nor computational power of the many acting freely in their own self interest to make as many decisions as possible. The government is simply a framework in which individuals work within and is meant to protect the rights of those individuals anything else is what Fredrick Bastiat calls “Legal Plunder” which is undertaken by the State under the protection of the legal system that exempted sovereigns and government officials from the usual prohibition against taking other people’s property by force. Only those in power domestically and globally wish to expand that power in ways I didn’t think possible. And I’m going to DC to stop them as just one voice to block their overreach of privacy, deprecate their legislative stranglehold legally, and defend the god given rights of Americans from tyrants foreign and domestic.
