Government Itself is Immoral – James Corbett

Government Itself is Immoral – James Corbett

For example, consider slavery. Slavery is a system in which a nonviolent human being must labor for another under the threat of aggressive violence. For Rothbard, slavery is unjust because it violates the non-aggression principle. Therefore, slavery must be illegal. Now consider the case of drinking alcohol. Although it may be morally reprehensible and bad for one’s health, drinking alcohol
does not involve the use of violence against a nonviolent human being. Therefore, drinking alcohol must be legal. In this manner, Rothbard uses the non-aggression test to determine whether any act is just or unjust and must be legal or illegal.

Although the non-aggression principle itself has never been controversial in the history of thought, its implications can be shocking for the uninitiated. For example, consider the case of taxation. A tax is a payment that government extracts from a human being under the threat of aggressive violence. To Rothbard, taxation is unjust because it violates the non-aggression principle. Any logically consistent thinker who accepts the principle must reject taxation.

Natural Law Anarchism. Mark Passio and Keith Knight

Since the nature of man is such that each individual must use his mind to learn about himself and the world, to select values, and to choose ends and means in order to survive and flourish, the right to self-ownership gives each man the right to perform these vital activities without being hampered and restricted by coercive molestation.

Murray N. Rothbard
Economic Controversies, p. 353

HERE’S THE DIFFERENCE: IN CAPITALISM, PEOPLE HAVE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE THEIR DOGS; IN SOCIALISM, PEOPLE KILL THEIR DOGS TO SAVE THEIR OWN LIVES … THAT’S WHY PEOPLE RISK THEIR LIVES TO MIGRATE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AND THAT’S WHY PEOPLE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO MIGRATE FROM VENEZUELA, NORTH KOREA AND CUBA.”

Statist Finds Out He’s A Voluntaryist! – Larken Rose & Hodey Johns

Statist Finds Out He’s A Voluntaryist! – Larken Rose & Hodey Johns

The state cannot be fought by simply boycotting it, as a private business could, because an aggressor does not respect the negative judgement revealed by boycotts.  But it also simply cannot be fought by countering its aggression with defensive violence, because the state’s aggression is supported by public opinion.  Thus, everything depends on a change in public opinion………In order for the state to fail in reaching its objective, no more and no less than a change in general public opinion must take place: state-supportive action must come to be regarded and branded as immoral because it is support given to an organization of institutionalized crime.

The Teachings of Brave Minds. Michael Tsarion & Keith Knight

The Teachings of Brave Minds. Michael Tsarion & Keith Knight

Man, in particular, must use his mind to learn, to formulate his goals and the means to attain them. He has no inborn instinct to guide him automatically to the correct choices, as the bird or the salmon are supposed to be guided…. animals are bound within the environment in which they find themselves. If a group of animals are adapted only to the environment of a certain area, X, and they are forced to leave X they will die. They must then defend this environment to the death.  Man, on the contrary, is unique among living beings for his capacity to change his environment, to leave, transform, and alter his circumstances on behalf of his own survival and progress. Man is not bound to a fixed plot of earth and all the environmental conditions upon it; he can move, he can build shelter against the elements, he can transform the earth, etc.

The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

Minimum wage laws tragically generate unemployment, especially so among the poorest and least skilled or educated workers… a minimum wage, of course, does not guarantee any worker’s employment; it only prohibits, by force of law, anyone from being employed at the wage which would pay his employer to hire him. It therefore compels unemployment.

Murray N. Rothbard
For a New Liberty, p. 196

Democracy = Mob Rule By the Ignorant

Democracy = Mob Rule By the Ignorant

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, aft er 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 N. Rothbard 
Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, p. 202

 

…Hayek had to fall back on the importance of blindly obeying whatever social rules happened to have “evolved,” and his only feeble argument against intervention was that the government was even more irrational, and was even more ignorant, than individuals in the market economy.

Murray N. Rothbard 

Making Economic Sense, p. 450

Deception in War, Arming ISIS, & the Military Industrial Complex. Scott Horton & Keith Knight

Deception in War, Arming ISIS, & the Military Industrial Complex. Scott Horton & Keith Knight

A final word about conscription: of all the ways in which war aggrandizes the State, this is perhaps the most flagrant and most despotic. But the most striking fact about conscription is the absurdity of the arguments put forward on its behalf. A man must be conscripted to defend his (or someone else’s?) liberty against an evil State beyond the borders. Defend his liberty? How? By being coerced into an army whose very raison d’etre is the expunging of liberty, the trampling on all the liberties of the person, the calculated and brutal dehumanization of the soldier and his transformation into an efficient engine of murder at the whim of his “commanding officer”? Can any conceivable foreign State do anything worse to him than what “his” army is now doing for his alleged benefit? Who is there, O Lord, to defend him against his “defenders”?

Propaganda Analysis – FBI Document on Crystallizing Public Opinion

Propaganda Analysis – FBI Document on Crystallizing Public Opinion

In all societies, public opinion is determined by the intellectual classes, the opinion molders of society. For most people neither originate nor disseminate ideas and concepts; on the contrary, they tend to adopt those ideas promulgated by the professional intellectual classes, the professional dealers in ideas. Now, throughout history … despots and ruling elites of States have had far more need of the services of intellectuals than have peaceful citizens in a free society. For States have always needed opinion-molding intellectuals to con the public into believing that its rule is wise, good, and inevitable; into believing that the “emperor has clothes.”

“… there are two and only two ways of attaining wealth in society: (a) by production and voluntary exchange with others — the method of the free market; and (b) by violent expropriation of the wealth produced by others. The latter is the method of violence and theft. The former benefits all parties involved; the latter parasitically benefits the looting group or class at the expense of the looted.”

How to Wipe the Smirk Off the Face of Idiots Who Call You a “Conspiracy Theorist”

… government is always and everywhere the potential or actual aggressor against the rights and liberties of the people. Liberty, the source of all the fruits of civilization and human happiness, is ever liable to suffer the aggressions and encroachments of government, of power, the source from which war, tyranny, and impoverishment ever flow. Power always stands ready to conspire against liberty, and the only salvation is for the public to keep government within strictly limited bounds, and to be ever watchful, vigilant, and hostile to the inevitable tendencies of government power to encroach upon liberty.
