To restore our liberty, we must learn to think outside (and beyond) the official "narrative" box.
 
It's Rule 5 on the Fourth of July!
 
"There are those in our own country too who today speak of the "protection of country" — of "survival." A decision must be made in the life of every nation at the very moment when the grasp of the enemy is at its throat. Then, it seems that the only way to survive is to use the means of the enemy, to rest survival upon what is expedient — to look the other way.

Well, the answer to that is "survival as what?" A country isn't a rock. It's not an extension of one's self. It's what it stands for. It's what it stands for when standing for something is the most difficult!"

Rule 5 Monday!

"The problem with government regulation is that you cannot fine-tune the regulations: nor can you perfect the regulatory work force in such a way to make regulation work in anything but a superficial way. The truth is that regulation instills confidence in the public so that they let down their guard and makes them less cautious while at the same time distorting the competitive nature of firms in the marketplace."

Rule 5 Saturday!

"While it is true that a wage gap between the sexes does exist, common sense and empirical evidence demonstrate that this difference is due to the various individual choices that men and women make with regard to compensation and labor-force participation. It is not caused by sexist employer discrimination."

Rule 5 Saturday!

"[D]efenders of public reason do not in fact show respect for everyone's comprehensive doctrine. It is only those deemed 'reasonable' who have to be taken into account. If you hold a comprehensive doctrine that is not 'reasonable,' then you are excluded: it is not necessary, in public argument, to offer you a reason that you would find acceptable."

It's Rule 5 Sunday!

"It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a 'dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. ~ Murray Rothbard"

It's Rule 5 Saturday!

"The excessive use of the passive voice … damns us to mealymouthed platitudes. We still speak about poverty and violence, but we huddle around the victims of oppression without looking straight at their oppressors."

The Voice of Tyranny

It's Rule 5 Sunday! Hot chicks dig liberty edition.

The factions within the parties who bring neither money nor power to the party, such as free-market and pro-peace groups, slavishly vote again and again for the party, naively convincing themselves that the party will do something for them if they can just win one more election.

Those who benefit most from this management of factions and interest groups are the parties themselves, since electoral victories bring with them jobs, power, and many financial rewards … while the other groups within the coalition are told they should just be happy that the other party didn't win.
