For those of us who still believe in and embrace the ideas of our founding, for those who believe that the individual and their liberty are of paramount importance and prime value, for those of us who believe that free market capitalism is the most moral and just system for organizing economic activity, we need to have an epiphany. We need to awaken to the reality that we are not a majority. We are not a vocal minority with the same rights as the majority. We are now dissidents. We do not have the same voice as our ever-strengthening oppressors, and we do not have the same rights that they enjoy.
I’ve known that for a long time. In fact, I’ve known it, for various reasons, most of my life.
For those who might argue that there more of us, or at least as many of us, who believe in individual liberty and free market capitalism than there are opponents to same, I would suggest that you should not confuse a simple head count with total political atomic mass. The positions within society that our opponents hold and the institutions and machinery they control gives them leverage beyond simple membership numbers.
We thought our voting numbers would be sufficient to protect our liberties, but what most did not understand is that votes don’t control our daily lives, institutions do.
We spend our days working for companies that control what we do during those work hours. Our children spend their days in schools that control what they say and do, and attempt to control what they think. We all exist under a leviathan government of tens of thousands of laws, and hundreds of thousands of regulations with the weight of law.
And our votes change none of that.
We might consider adopting the rallying cry of liberty from a great American speaker, Governor Mike DeSantis: “I will not. And you can go fuck yourself.”
