Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

DIRECTION OF FREEDOM

I get so tired of people waving national flags and bragging about how they live in Freedom. Because they don’t.

Freedom is the condition of every individual having complete control over his or her life and property.

Therefore,

– if somebody can successfully vote to have your money taken from you, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to prevent you from marrying a person or several people simultaneously, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to make you perform a job like soldier or sailor, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to put you in a cage for smoking a plant, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to make you pay for someone they have sympathy for – including themselves – you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to restrict your travel, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to restrict anything that you and another consenting adult do, you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to keep you under unwanted surveillance , you don’t live in a Free country

– if somebody can successfully vote to make you accept a mandatory “service,” you don’t live in a Free country

If you live under a social system where other people can control your life and property by voting, you don’t live in a Free country. You don’t live in Freedom.

Democracy is not Freedom. Democracy is generally better than other coercive social systems – but it’s lightyears from satisfying a definition of true Freedom.

The first step in building something better than coercive Democracies is to stop waving flags and bragging about having Freedom that does not yet exist.

And for the love of all humanity –  please stop voting to hurt other people!
