XXVIII – The Liberty and Consent Protection Amendment

XXVIII

The individual liberty of The People (those residing in these United States) shall not in any circumstance be infringed upon by other individuals, groups, or governments of any type whatsoever.

1) The People are, and always shall remain, as a right of humankind from the moment of conception and birth, inherently full owners of their own lives, including their body, their labor, and the fruits derived thereof;

A) As full owners of their selves, The People individually own their present selves, their past selves, and their future selves;

i. As owners of their present selves, The People are the exclusive owners of their personal efforts and labor, to be voluntarily associated and dispensed as each chooses;

ii. As exclusive owners of their past selves, The People are inherently entitled to the exclusive ownership of their accumulated fruits of their present efforts, e.g. property, wealth, etc., to do with as they please, and in perpetuity;

iii. As exclusive owners of their future selves, The People are inherently entitled to remain free from unwanted influence and coercion, threats thereof, as affirmed forthwith;

2) The People shall always be entitled to the right of consent, whereby they reserve the opportunity to consent to, or outright reject, all initiatives of and associations with others;

3) This right to Individual Liberty shall always be reserved by all The People who are of sound mind;

A) The liberty of those medically deemed of unsound mind shall be protected from themselves and/or others by guardians as the law establishes.

B) Children, until the Age of Consent (age 18), being of limited faculty to make sound decisions, shall remain the legal responsibility of their parents or guardians, and shall have limited rights to self-determination until achieving the age of consent; but shall otherwise retain the rights to consent;

i. Laws shall be constructed to protect children from themselves;

ii. Laws shall be constructed to protect children from predators who would avail themselves upon the innocence of a child in order to violate the child’s liberty before the child is capable of sound consent;

C) Belief in the merits and defense of Individual Liberty shall solely never be deemed to be a mental illness, or classify any among The People as being of unsound mind.

4) The People, as heretofore described, shall always reserve the right to make their own informed and voluntary associations, and to consent to activities which they deem appropriate so long as their actions do not violate the Individual Liberty of others among The People.

5) The People shall be free to protect themselves from the unlawful coercion, fraud and force used by others wishing to violate Individual Liberty as a means of achieving their goals, and may associate as they wish to do so.

6) The sole exception where an individual, group, or group organized as a government may violate the consent of another person or group is when that other person or group is in the act of aggressing against the right to consent of others, or has aggressed in such a manner whereby prosecution for such crimes is necessitated as a matter of protecting this Amendment.

7) Individual Liberty shall always remain inalienable regardless of the justification of those who would choose exceptions or exemptions in order to violate it. Under no circumstances, save those exceptions noted in this amendment, may The Peoples’ rights to Individual Liberty and to consent ever be violated.

Leave Ethnicity Out of It. Authoritarianism is the Problem

I don’t get the whole racism thing.   Scouring comment sections on articles about the politics of the day, invariably you find a moronic comment.  Granted,  I’m always keeping in mind that I may not be reading an actual racist, but rather a “progressive planter” who is following Saul Alinksy’s Rules for Radicals model for undermining the authority of your political enemy, whereby you keep your followers from sympathizing with the enemy by painting your enemy as a racist unworthy of receiving even two-seconds of your time.

That aside, there are no doubt legit rants about “the Jews”, blacks, legal immigrants, Muslims, illegals, etc.   Half the time they mix it in with socialism or communism, etc.   Always it’s a “they are killing this country” type of thing.

What ignorance when it comes to the universal hate on ethnicity.  And as for commie and socialist?   All of it is distractions from the core point:

I sort ’em all out by one factor: Do they believe in individual liberty? Or are they fundamentally authoritarian with the methods they choose? What do I care if they are Jewish or black?   Besides, some of the biggest defenders of individual liberty I have ever met or read were Jewish, gay [Lessons of “Bridgegate”], etc.

On the other hand, if you believe you and your group of voters are more important than another persons’ individual liberty, and your chosen methods and policies demonstrate absolutely no respect, whatsoever,  for others’ innate right to consent… And your resort to violence or threats thereof to achieve your goals?   Well… Simply — you are an authoritarian of some form or another.

Let’s do a quick walk on authoritarian behavior vs. liberty.  It is one word:  Consent.

Difference between rape and making love = Consent or not.

Murder and suicide = consent or not.

Theft and charity = consent. Laundering it through an election does not make it right.

You get it?

That said, you racist types — Why not attack the behavior and define those individuals for what they truly are?  But leave the rest of the Jews, blacks, and gays out of it. I’ve met plenty of good people, and some of the greatest liberty defenders you’ll find mixed in.

Now, some authoritarian folks don’t known any better and stoop to authoritarian policies without even understanding that’s what they’re voting for.  They wouldn’t know individual liberty if it beat them over the head due to an government school education that serves like an indoctrination of the virtues of government interventionism and the required violations of individual liberty.   You know who these people are — they are a ton of [fill in your ethnicity here].  Meanwhile, plenty of [fill in your ethnicity here] are authoritarians outright — commies, progressives… or right-wing anti liberty types.

That in mind, I’ll take a liberty-defending “illegal” any day over some sit-on-his-but “I’m entitled ’cause I’m ‘Merican Citizen” type who thinks he’s owed something from his hard working neighbors. Or some NeoConn – let’s use your tax dollars to remodel the world for “democracy” (not liberty, mind you….) type.

As for those darned Jews:

“It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes. If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus.” — Murray Rothbard

Liberty — either your for it or against it. There is no in between.

 

Progressive Operatives Are the Racists in Your Comment Section

The left has officially declared  that if your against Obama and/or progressive methods, you are a racist.  They have set about convincing everyone of this as a means of getting the fence sitters to ignore all criticism.  All very Orwellian —  thought planting kind of stuff.

Hence, there’s plenty of incentive for them to post extreme racism and hate on the comment sections of politician and news sites, and then reference that planted material in order to assassinate the entire message and messenger of the related criticisms.  The old “guilt by association” tactic.

This is, of course, impossible to prove.  But we do know that Saul Alinky’s Rules for Radicals is all about such deceit to achieve the essentially neo-Marxist / Fabian Socialist Utopia progressives wanted to enable.

And we do know progressives are all about calling other people racists…Look at the largely unfounded Tea Party accusations — Every progressive knows that racists attend Tea Party gatherings, although none has actually seen one.     They’re quick to accuse their opponents of being haters of the poor, wanting elderly to starve and arranging things so kids have no healthcare options…. Etc.

It’s all designed to put your opponent on the defense and get them off track.

It is followed by another Alinksy rule: Ridicule.  They’re “Tea Baggers”, Got it?

So why wouldn’t they be doing this?
