Episode-2000- How Liberty Creates Inequality and Why that’s Good

There is a fallacy out there masquerading as a universal truth, and that is that our goal in society should be equality for all.  That inequality should be eliminated, period.  Politically many people have many different views on how that should be done, however the average person would agree that inequality is a bad thing, and should be eliminated.

The truth though is while the definition of inequality has been changed by the politically correct you can’t ignore the root of the word.  It is formed from two parts,

In this case the prefix “in” indicates a negative, as in the word “not”.

The component equality comes from the word equal as in each part, person, etc, get the same thing.

In other words inequality means “not equal”.  So some get more than others, some get less.

What we have done is made inequality the same as or equal to injustice, which means a lack of fairness or justice or simply “not just”.

These two things are not the same thing.

If you think I am splitting hairs tune in today because this is a critical thing to understand when discussing liberty with others.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • What is an inequity
  • What is an injustice
  • How liberty reduces injustice but increases inequality
  • Why this is a great thing and we should stop trying to create equality
  • No, everyone doesn’t even have an equal opportunity and that can’t ever happen
  • What would a society built solely on equal justice look like

Episode-1996- Can Insurrection and Unity Coexist

When I started this show I was a minarchist libertarian, over the years I made the logical migration to full on voluntarist.  Many people of anarchist ideology see no value to things like national borders or any “love of country”.  I am not such a person, though I am labeled as such at times.

The truth is in all things I am first a pragmatist.   It is great to know how things should be so that we can strive for that, but it is also important to know how things are, so we can adapt to and over come them in the now.

To me anarchy is something for humanity to one day rise up to, rather than descend into as the fear mongers would say.   In the end though we have what we have today, and honestly in the US despite our flaws we do have many opportunities and recognized rights that many other nations do not.

Part of me loves my country, more accurately the ideals of my country, the ideal for instance that all men are created equal in regard to rights.   That each of us should have the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   I think that is a good common ideal to share among all free men and women, a source of unity.

Yet in every place our nation falls short of these ideals, I feel the spirit of insurrection should be alive and well.  We all know that governments do not grant rights, they either protect or trample upon them.  And once government takes a right away by increasing their power, they never give it back willingly.  It is only thought rebellion and insurrection, that power is taken from the state.

Words like revolution, rebellion and insurrection conjure up images of violent resistance.  Yet the state is violence, the state is force and the state is very good at these things, hence we do not strike the opponent where he is strong, rather where he is weak.

  • Insurrection is America, without it there is no America
