We hold these truths to be self-evident

Abstract: Unknown News

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

      Freedom is a good idea.

      Freedom is not forcing other people to pay or obey your god, not having Congress decide whether and how consenting adults may f**k, not imprisoning people who eat, smoke, or drink things you wouldn't, etc. Freedom is letting people decide such things for themselves.

      Most people are adamantly opposed to freedom. Not their own, of course just everyone else's.

      All human beings even humans who don't live in America, whose skin isn't white, who don't speak English, who worship a different god than you do (or worship no god at all) deserve human rights. "Liberty and justice for all," even for people you don't like, who believe things you don't believe, and do things you wouldn't do.

      Killing people who haven't done anything wrong is a bad idea.

      Trusting government to decide who lives and dies is an especially bad idea.

      Trusting governments at all is something best done in small doses.

      Trusting corporations to do the right thing is another bad idea.

      Mass media, owned by massive corporations, is not a ferocious "watchdog" protecting the public's best interests.

      'The system' doesn't work, except for those working the system.

      Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The United States government has very nearly absolute power.

      The chasm grows wider every day, between the lofty ideals America publicly professes and the actual behavior of its government and corporations.

      Now is the time to speak up. Tomorrow may be too late.
