Freedom

Merry Christmas Rule 5!

"The initial promises made with such conviction for new government 'solutions' have been unrealized pipedreams. And unlike self-ownership and the jointly beneficial market arrangements it allows, which has produced uncountable successes without theft, there are no such 'success stories' that demonstrate miraculous improvement from the intrusion of government that can match the historical successes of the market."

Troll the NSA

2013-09-21

Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, recently revealed that NSA tried to corrupt him. They wanted him to build a special NSA back-door into the Linux operating system. Writing to Becky Akers, a reader notes the obvious, "This is more evidence the NSA cares nothing about the regime's stated enemies or terrorists. All it cares about is spying on common Americans, and it doesn't care if the Russians, Chinese, Iranians and Israelis do the same."

Whether John Ashcroft's "new paradigm" or Barack Obama's "new normal," it doesn't really matter. Because neither is friendly to freedom. In fact the whole massive spying apparatus that presently captures and stores "the content of trillions of telephone conversations, texts and emails, and can access that content at the press of a few computer keys" proves beyond doubt that the U.S. federal government is openly hostile to freedom today.

So how about joining in a little civil disobedience?

Jared Marcum, a 14-year old eighth grade honor student, is staring down the possibility of spending his next year in jail … for the crime of wearing an NRA t-shirt.

You see, according to "our" brave pansy-assed men in blue, Marcum "almost incited a riot." Like, OMG!

"No Christian would be in favor of criminalizing all sins. Not when the Bible says that 'the thought of foolishness is sin' (Proverbs 24:9). Why, then, are some Christians so quick to applaud making some sins criminal just because the state happens to select them and not others?"

It's Rule 5 Saturday!

"In short, the wish for socialism is a wish for unparalleled human evil. If we really understood this, no one would express casual support for it in polite company. It would be like saying, you know, there is really something to be said for malaria and typhoid and dropping atom bombs on millions of innocents."
