What Kind Of World Is This?

Those who demand self-sacrifice say:

"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
*The only Good self-sacrifice is where one freely chooses to sacrifice the Bad within one's own self*


Those who demand self-responsibility say:

"The consent of one outweighs the initiation of force from all."
*The only Bad responsibility is where one is forced to be responsible for others without one's consent*

Consent of the governed was the primary principle the U.S.A. was founded.

The Declaration Of Independence
Action of the Second Continental Congress, July 4,1776
(The Unanimus Declaration of the thirteen United States of America)

WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are Created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any form of Government becomes destructive to these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.


(The Declaration continues with the list of reasons for the separation from Great-Britain.)


What Kind Of Governments Have We?

In a Slave society, the master does not consider any ideas from slaves. Only the master will benefit from a sacrifice of values through absolute force and control.

In a Socialist or Fascist Dictatorship, the "elite" will consider very few ideas from individuals. The "elite" will benefit from the sacrifice of values through coercive force and control.

In a Democracy, an idea is considered for the benefit of the majority. The majority will benefit from the sacrifice of values through laws against the minority.

In a Constitutional Republic, the government's only purpose is to protect the rights of individuals and to ensure they do not violate the rights of others, which is the prohibition of initiatory force and fraud. The individual is free to act on one's own ideas, to make mutual agreements, to create and exchange values with those who voluntarily consent. Each will benefit through one's own value production or the private act of benevolence.

In an Anarchist society, each individual's ideas may or may not be considered by all or none. Chaos is likely to control individuals and their values if a lack of mutual agreements and respect for each individual's rights is not established.

The individual is the smallest and most unprotected minority. When individual rights are protected, then the rights of all groups are protected.



Freedom In An Unfree World

Freedom in an Unfree World

What are the primary characteristics of an individual that dictate how one deals towards others in a society? Why does there seem to be an apparent difference between Republicans and Democrats? Both questions can be answered by knowing the differences that exist between being honest and dishonest and knowing the cause and effect to understand the logical consequences of actions that affect everyone.

Authoritian Control versus Self-Control


Philosophy Index Top





The Unclouded Mind


The only right and supreme right of all conceived rights, is the total control of one's own life, which includes one's property, earnings and debts. If it is dictated that some are entitled to food, shelter, employment, healthcare, education, transportation and/or paid holidays at the expense of others without their consent, then the rights of others have been infringed upon by forcefully taking away their earned property and thus, their life.

It is good when one freely consents to help or give to others that are in need or are worthy, but not an obligation of morality. It is bad and immoral when one has not consented but who is forced to help or give to others. The respect of each person's natural-born rights to their own life is primary. "The Golden Rule" is good for morality and ethics in dealing with others; "Treat others as you would like to be treated". "The Diamond Rule" is very good for morality and ethics in dealing with others; "Treat others as they uniquely like to be treated". But the "The Platinum Rule" is best and necessary for morality and ethics in dealing with others; "Do not treat others as they uniquely do not like to be treated". A moral society's common denominator is the right of individuals not to be forced to act for or against others and their interests, while the only numerator is for the right of individuals to act for or against one's own self interest.

The more control and responsibility you voluntarily take in your personal life, the more likely you are to be successful and prosperous. The less control and responsibility you take in your personal life, the more likely a coercive government or "authority" will take that control and responsibility from you. Then you will be less likely to succeed and prosper and then must rely on these government forces or "authorities" for your survival.
