Guest Post: You Know You’re Not Living In A Free Country When…
You know you’re no longer living in a free country when the government tells you what you can and cannot put in your body. Or when an unelected board of bureaucrats and corporate insiders can confiscate the assets of hardworking small business owners. Yet these have become par for the course in the Land of the Free. The police, the bureaucrats… they are not the enemy. They are merely pawns of an entire system gone critically bad. In truth, there is no actual enemy. The enemy is an idea – a faceless government that is not embodied in a single individual or group. Trying to ‘fight’ this enemy, this idea, is as futile as a government ‘declaring war’ on drugs or poverty. These are not enemy combatants. They’re nouns. Concepts. As such, trying to ‘take back’ the country is a noble yet unfortunately misguided expenditure of precious resources.
