Central planning and an economy based upon Washington directed dictates is destined to fail. We are destroying ourselves for the false hope of security... One could as the question 'Is welfare from the central planning state a bad thing?'
Many find themselves dependent on welfare simply because it is so hard to become independently productive and self-reliant.The bad thing is that it is now necessary since all other options have been destroyed.
Are we a nation of individual liberty? No. We no longer have the freedom to pursue our dreams since nearly everything is directed and regulated out of Washington.
This fellow thinks we can extract ourselves from this...
Freedom is not having to be dependent on government for anything. Freedom is not having to depend upon systemically too big to fail banks and a corrupted financial system for one's economic and social security.The leviathan will not give up its power and control that easily. just look at how the IRS fought against the Tea Party, Christian groups and those that were advocates of a return to constitutional self rule. The leviathan does not take these kinds of threats without striking back.
Freedom is not having to depend upon our existing infrastructures to be economically productive and useful. Every human being has the potential to be productive and socially useful, the only problem is that our existing infrastructures are far too restrictive in practical terms for the greater part of individuals and communities to fully realize their potential.
What we need is a new war of independence, one that is not waged on the battlefield, but technologically designed and constructed to enable our independence from the stifling hyper-structures of our existing institutions.
