Freedom vs. Force – The Individual and the State

It is a fact that throughout history, freedom has been considered so precious that some individuals have preferred death to a life in which it is absent.

Once a society comes under the dominion of centralised authority, such a power will grow to leviathan proportions, which, like a parasite, sucks the life-blood from the subjects it governs.

  1. Great share Ethan what a gem of a man Auberon Herbert was how can you not rally to the words of ” the one and only one true basis of society is the frank recognition of these rights of self-ownership; that is to say, of the rights of control and direction by the individual, as he himself chooses, over his own mind, his own body, and his own property, always provided, that he respects the same universal rights in others.’ Regards Russell

  2. Huge fan of the Academy of Ideas channel! Been a subscriber for a couple of years now and continuously share their vids hoping they might impact others as they have me.
    Quality channel and quality topic. Nice work

  3. A fantastic synopsis of what freedom vs cipher mentality encompasses!

    I’m surprised that U-Tube hasn’t taken the video down yet.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. I wrote this on September 2nd 2020 and posted on a number of independent news sites, I believe it fits nicely here.

    Australians have been engaged in a war of attrition for over half a century against a juggernaut United Nations and New World Order funded by the wealthy one percent. Australian governments have collaborated to steadily wear down our defences attacking critical thought, individual rights, freedoms, personal responsibility and accountability. They have normalised immoral behaviour and sowed the seeds of corruption, infesting all systems of our society. When perception is held higher than truth what becomes of truth? It’s through linking truth to perception that evil men implement their plans to destroy truth.

    “The only thing for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. Edmund Burke

    When good men find themselves alone stay true and strong in character leading by example.

    “Habit is the daily battleground of character”. Dan Coats

    If provoked respond using all necessary force to go about your business in peace. Everyone has the God given right to defend themselves against all aggressors no matter badge, flag or patch. Accept that you are alone in this fight and that the enemy will target you at your weakest but don’t stop searching out good men.

    “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle”. Edmund Burke
