Mike, Norwalk

smiling great big while nodding head: Does anyone here know what driving force and unquenchable desire makes the socialist/fascist, democrat/republican, liberal/conservative, slave/politician want to force their collective/personal form of tyranny on me?

Mike, Norwalk

'me', being every emprical individual 'me' being the sole foundation of society. 'me' being the noble sovereign from which all authority, and power generates.

Me, Augusta, GA

Right on, Jimmy!

Mike, everybody wants to act like God and create the world in their own image. That's why they just can't leave other people alone to live their own lives. It is pure sacrilegious arrogance, the same Lucifer himself indulged in.

... because that is the antitisis of "society", we are beings of societal relationships, and that by very definition means that there is a series of trade-offs between the individual and the group. We are no longer grunting solitary hunters (well, most of us are not), we are now grunting social cavemen... ;-) So, it is not a matter of "leaving everybody else alone" but rather of "respecting others".

Because we find ourselves bored to death.

Anonymous, Reston, I believe that this means to quit interfering in others business unless invited. This is why I'm a Libertarian and believe in "Live and Let Live".

Excellent. Just start with the one in the White House.

They want somebody to make their bed and build their home for next to nothing. Then move away and don't live to close. Pilfering servants tips as they go. Besides there is no profit in leaving every body alone. To live fence to fence is not good. Just like water rights, return the property to the oldest claim. Reston your view of hunters and fishers is that of a city dweller that thinks trees are purple with pink trunks. Claim jumpers wont dig it out for themselves. Just before the industrial revolution 93% of the work force was on the farm. and that is a good place to be. Many wish they were there now. An elk in the freezer and a stack of fire wood is better than a piece of worthless paper in an empty store. Ed, the one in the white house, his days are numbered, all they do is replace him with one just like him. With the beginning of socialism, started the money grab, with the property tax, started the land grab, ROBERY, RAISE THE TAXES THEY WILL HAVE TO SELL.GREED,GREED,GREED ! Push the little man aside and hold him down with there boot on your neck.
