A central question in any man’s philosophy must: “be who owns you?”
The primary social evil of our time is lack of respect for self-ownership rights. It is what underlies both private crime and institutionalized crime perpetrated by the state. State laws, regulations, and actions are objectionable just because the state is claiming the right to control how someone’s body is to be used.
One wonders how modern Americans think that slavery to the State is somehow any better than the old time slavery to another man. Either you are a free man or you are not. Few modern men seem to understand that being enslave to the state is still being enslaved.
