Unaccountable Government & The Illusion Of Freedom
by Ryan Cristián
Truth and free speech are indeed being suppressed today, and not all in obvious ways. We of course have our illusions, our preconceived and entirely engineered notions of what “freedom” actually means, except the term freedom is not up for debate, it is quite clear in fact:
The absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action.
Yet today, the idea of freedom is muddled — intentionally so — with the idea of safety. We have been conditioned to forget that this country was founded on the essential ideals of limited government, and freedom of choice, in every regard. Which absolutely comes with a measure of danger; the world is not without its dangers, and no government presence, authoritarian or otherwise, can ever remove that danger from our lives. It can only replace it with one of its own creation — which is entirely the point. The ideas of limited government and freedom of choice should not be misunderstood as the allowance of that which society deems unacceptable or worthy of repercussion or exile, but the point being that such choices were always meant to be society’s, and not that of an uncontrollable, unaccountable oligarchy, which is what we see today.
In a truly free society — that which the Founders were arguably aiming to achieve — there will be flaws, faults and mistakes, but those are ours to make, as a community, and not to be overseen, or entirely overcome, by a faceless ruling entity that has no real understanding of what each specific community holds dear or ultimately values. If said community falls victim to corruption or manipulation, it is the right of the community themselves to remove those doing the manipulating, as is our inherent right, as outlined by the Constitution; and point of fact, even in regard to the Federal Government itself. The simple realization that such a right has been removed from possibility, should show us just how illusory our freedom in this country truly is.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ~The Constitution Of The United States Of America

About the writer
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our main websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
