The Teachings of Brave Minds. Michael Tsarion & Keith Knight

by | Nov 10, 2020


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.

Murray N. Rothbard 

Libertarian Forum v. 1, pp. 140, 142

About Keith Knight

Keith Knight is the creator of the Don't Tread on Anyone podcast and Odysee channel. Having supported Barack Obama in 2008, and Mitt Romney in 2012, he became a Libertarian Anarchist after running out of arguments for when initiating violence is morally permissible. His goal in life is to spread knowledge of critical thinking, the non-aggression principle, self-ownership, natural law and the private property ethic.
