André Thirion Quote

“For this future emancipation, we have to rule out ideologies that aim at reinforcing the state, the police and controls in general, and at reducing liberty.”

~ André Thirion

I agree with that! We must also rule out the current form of funding politicians coffers - there lies the greed and corruption that's got us into this mess.

As you reduce the power of government you will also reduce the corporate bribery/political extortion. There is no evil that does not concentrate with power and the only way to diffuse the greed and corruption is to take away the power to be greedy and corrupt. More government regulation will never eliminate the bribery and blackmail, it only gives it the opportunity to flourish and the incestuous relationship between government and corporate interests to develop. I thought the left's motto was supposed to be "Power to the People". D's and R's have both demonstrated they don't want the individual to have power. They want it for themselves and they're determined to keep it. If only we'd neuter the politicians, we might find out what freedom is really like. "Free at last! Thank God Almighty! We're free at last."

YES! Interesting how politicians propose the exact opposite...

The next emancipation will have to come at a greater cost than earlier efforts. Beyond police state enforcements, and religious ideologies (progressivism, socialism, etc.), the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has purchased the vast majority of helots, serfs and slave through their dole and otherwise entitlements (such inferiors do not know what liberty is while, they are afraid of it and do not want it).
