A Memo on Slavery and Imprisonment

That’s all.

Update: Oh, except that 11:00 into the first video, the prosperity of America, combined with a level of Statism that surpasses anything else on the planet is adequately explained:

“Freedom metastasizes the cancer of the state. The government that starts off the smallest, will always end up the largest.”

I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    I haven’t watched the 2nd vid yet.

    The 1st makes a heck of a lot of sense to me.

    I have learned more in the last 5 years than the previous 30, and more in the last 1 year than the previous 5.

      What I don’t get is the desire of some to split hairs like that. Analogies are rarely perfect, just like parables. Hell, even concepts themselves are not typically perfect representations of reality.

      Now, that article is pretty reasonable and measured. So I suppose an “in-house” critique is fine. What’s really hilarious to me though is how many out there are really gunning for Stefan Molyneux. Like, there are entire websites and forums dedicated to taking him down (that article is NOT in that category).

      Imagine that. You have an entire website dedicated to the takedown of a single person, and he’s not even an elected official. Well, kids in mommy’s basement on her WiFi have strange perceptions of value. 🙂

    I wish people were more interested in these topics. The first is a great video I haven’t seen before, which paints a clearer picture than I’ve been able to. Ironically I’ve been trying to communicate exactly this to my family that’s still on the farm – unsuccessfully. They still mostly consume shitty box store food.
