& GUNS ARE SOCIALLY ANALOGOUS
PEOPLE CONTROL BOTH

Libertarianism has become popular. But is it really the answer to the
despotic regimes that have characterized the history of human society? Some who
claim the name are close but many are far into utopian fantasies.
I like Lou Rockwell.
His internet page is always a source of truth and commendable prose. I saved a
quote where he said that the moral law applies across the board, and that one is not
exempted from it by a government suit. That is a good starting point as long
as the source of the moral law is the Word of the Christian Triune God.
Unfortunately, Gods Law is rarely, if ever, mentioned in Libertarian
are pedagogic, articulate, intellectual, and industrious; they have no peers in
chronicling the swift deterioration of our nation. Their primary moral code is that
coercion is evil and freedom is righteous. Most envision a society free from
restraints where everyone considers the rights of their fellows. Their objective is
attractive and though its realization is murky and imprecise their ranks are growing.
Libertarianism has roots in the
Godless intellectualism of the Enlightenment. Seventeenth Century French
intellectual Rene Descartes
declared I think, therefore I am. Deification of the human mind
began the tragic and irrational march toward human divinity. Thomas Paine called it
The Age of Reason
and with the irreverence of a rebel and the brilliance of an intellectual he discarded the
formal religion of the ages in favor of his own deistic opinions.
spawned the Enlightenment and like its progenitor Libertarianism is steeped in
intellectualism. Free trade ala Ludwig
von Mises takes on an almost divine character. The fractured condition of the
movement provides insight into the results of the deification of the human mind.
include Liberals, Conservatives, Paleo-Conservatives, Anarchists, Minarchists, limited
government rebels, mislead Christians, freedom loving intellectuals, and rebellious youth.
There are Socialist Libertarians and Capitalist Libertarians. European
definitions tend to be anarchic and politically left while American definitions are
broader supporting free market capitalism. All tend to resist coercion and emphasize
freedom, liberty, and voluntary association. There are moral Libertarians and
immoral Libertarians. There are Koch Libertarians and Rockwell Libertarians.
As with many Godless intellectual movements there is a wide acceptance of free sex.
Ron Paul has done as much as anyone to popularize the Libertarian Movement. His run
for the Presidency was filled with wisdom and honesty that would serve us well but his
defeat was programmed before he began his campaign. Peter Theil, an openly gay member of
the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group, provided
major support. I voted for Ron Paul and thought his financing was a result of
large quantities of small contributions from internet sources. I now wonder if it
was a setup to insure the election of Barak Obama.
lacks an anchor and is plagued with the anarchy of human opinion. When organizations
become fractured by opposing opinions they become weak through diversity. Power
results from a clear objective. There are too many voices in the movement. In a Business Insider
article Eric Zuesse writes that Libertarians entirely avoid the real question,
which is: What type of government is good? As an ideology, libertarianism
doesnt even make it to first base: its fake, from the get-go. Thats why
Gods overarching legal system provides an anchor and a big step forward for freedom.
Opinions are a form of coercion with each proponent striving to dominate.
Anthony Wile at the Daily Bell recently posted a fascinating interview with George Guilder. Guilder is a
consummate insider who lost his father to WWII and was parented by David Rockefeller.
Some of Guilders opinions are compatible with patriots, new world order
opponents, and some Libertarians. The
interview is here. It is an interesting interview of a very smart man.
However, I am not as much interested in the interview itself as I am with the
demeanor of Gilders responses. He responds with the assurance of the wealthy elite
and Wile accepts his responses with the demeanor of the proletariat. Though they are
just opinions Gilder expects them to be heeded; there is tyranny in his manner. An
interview with Walter Block provides another example of dominate opinion. Block has
the lofty credentials of an academic. He expects respect for his positions but with
less dominance. Read his
Rejection of the
Christian doctrine of original sin undergirds scores of disastrous social and political
ventures. The government of the United States of America was founded and has been
conducted under the assumption that government is a human domain. We live in a
Democratic Republic which depends on the voting public to elect individuals who will abide
by a Constitution.
Commandments, not opinions. Commandments are authoritative and dominating, they
demand compliance. Opinions vary from man to man and are subject to rejections.
Commandments vest authority in God while opinions vest authority in the creature.
One is God centered, the other is humanistic. Gods Commandments are
simple and immutable; human law is voluminous, complex, emendable, and often obtuse.
The United States Constitution is a man made document that is being
shredded by men and women who have taken a sacred oath to uphold it. These are evil,
dishonest people. This kind of behavior is typical of the majority of kings,
queens, and dictators that have enslaved and abused the earths population from
antediluvian times. It would create severe problems in an anarchic Libertarian
Absolute freedom is
like infinity, it is beyond the kin of mankind. We are captives in a body and
captives in a universe. We had nothing to do with our birth and baring suicide we
have little to do with our death. Our inclination is to fall into a captivity of action
that imprisons our lives. Some of us become obsessed with business, some with
learning, some with drugs, some with sex, some with ego, etc. A mature person in a
properly governed society should be free to choose where he will use his life.
Al Benson began one
of his recent columns with this paragraph: We see in operation today two kingdoms in
the worldthe Kingdom of God and the kingdom of man (the state). There are few
legitimate governments anymore that really comprise the state. Most of the
legitimate ones are gone, having been replaced with dictatorships, oligarchies, or fake
republics that fool people with charades they refer to as elections and whose
results have already been predetermined long before the election takes place.
We recently had one of those in the United States.
The human freedom
being pursued by the Libertarian agenda is at war with the Kingdom of God and in spite of
its popularity it cannot realize its objective. Freedom is rooted in Christianity.
It is rooted in individual responsibility and obedience to Gods Commandments.
Gods government is the opposite of the new world order; His government is
decentralized. The family is the basic unit. The state acts as protector and the
church is Gods agent.
application of Law is the key to freedom. All of society; the individual, the
church, and the state, must abide by Gods Law. Government cannot be allowed to
pass laws to which they, themselves, are not subject; it always ends in
been living in a dream world and the next few months and years may bring a big change in
their religious perception. Gods Judgment has fallen on our world!
R. J. Rushdoony wrote that the Moloch state is a product of
apostasy. We are in the grip of a product of apostasy that is abolishing our
freedom and conducting a war against God and His people. Hobby Lobby is resisting
the new health care law which demands support for abortion. The Moloch state will
require a massive daily fine for non-compliance. The state does not worship the
Christian God of Hobby Lobby; its god is the anti-Christ.
thousands of Dispensational Christians are expecting world government to bring the Rapture
and the Second Coming of Christ. It could happen but it is likely it will not.
If they are wrong they will be shocked to find themselves living in a police state
run by an evil cabal that hates their Savior. The dictionary defines apostasy as
abandonment of a previous loyalty. We have abandoned the orthodox Reformed Christian
Faith that was bequeathed by our fathers and followed a heresy that has allowed the
humanistic hand of evil to invade our religion, our lives, our homes, and our
As the horrors of
the new world order afflict the Western World people will realize that government is not
the source redemption. They will concede that we have not followed the gift of
salvation with obedience and dominion; and that if we expect to live in freedom again
we must turn from our sin and repent of our wicked ways.
quote 2 Chronicles 7:14 where God promises to remove His judgment If my people,
which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn
from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land.. I get many emails quoting this Bible passage but none
of them specify what is meant by turning from our wicked ways. Gods
judgment is not confined to abortion or to homosexuality or to disobeying the often
questionable personal guidance that comes from God speaking to individuals.
Judgment comes for disobedience to His Commandments (His Law).
We have lost our
nation to Moloch because we have allowed a foreign religion to change our laws legalizing
the evils of abortion, homosexuality, murder, dishonesty, theft, injustice, war, genocide,
hate, pugnacity, greed, torture and independence. When a society allows its
government to disobey Gods Law that society is on the road to ruin.
Freedom is not
realized by abandoning government and allowing moral evil to run rampant, it is not a
product of a lack of laws, nor can it be produced by intellectual endeavor. Freedom
is a result of obedience to the Commandments of our Creator.
Libertarians put the rational product of their minds above the Law of God. They are
not the only ones who believe their opinions are superior to Gods. Our
society is full of legal standards, folkways, and mores that are at odds with God.
We are living in a cesspool created by our own vain laxity and many have not yet smelled
