I Keep Reminding Myself That It Is Never Too Late To Shut Up

Silence is always appropriate. It is the refuge of the wise.

The Statue of Personal Responsibility - Galt's Gulch

The Statue of Personal Responsibility - Galt's Gulch


"Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men."

Observing the Statue of Liberty was the First Contact many people had coming to the United States through Immigration on Ellis Island. The observation was made that the West Coast should have a corresponding Statue of Personal Responsibility. Because Government Legislates, Judges, and Executes Law and Order primarily against law breakers and generally appreciates law abiding citizens, it follows that TRUE liberty and personal freedom results from people who behave themselves and are in no dire need of someone else to make them behave. Personal Responsibility of individuals, IF PERFECTED, would not require ANY Laws or even Government controls of any kind. It is the simplest idea in the world to understand. Controls are only multiplied out of necessity because certain people can't control themselves. If you cannot tend to your own needs then someone else must tend to them for you. And if that is the case, you simply must accept their style and manner of control and defer to it until you can do it yourself. Humans are interdependent, of course, so we need each other. That is a fact of life. A Community of less than 1,500 individuals can generally do without the problems that arise from urbanization because there is a stronger sense of knowing each other and being accountable to each other. It takes a Community like this to raise a child, so even with human nature being what it is now, if anyone encroaches upon the boundaries and rights of another through abuse, neglect, misappropriation or outright exploitation, the matter can be addressed effectively at a local level for both the Perpetrator(s) and the Victim(s).

Living in the middle of no where in Wisconsin my whole life, I understand this is over simplified and ideal, even for Rural small communities and families. In Wisconsin, one cannot rely on the Federal or the State functionaries that be on any level, so we have become accustomed to doing things on our own locally. In the end, that is all there really is. Let the Propaganda fly back and forth over our heads and land where it may, but ultimately it's just help your neighbor as you would yourselves. Then, misbehavior is quite clearly apparent and collectively taken care of. If you have a truly decent community of people to begin with, there is no further abuse, neglect or misappropriation committed in that process and things can remain quite open, even transparent

NY Times: QUOTATION OF THE DAY

QUOTATION OF THE DAY

"It's impossible to understand what it is to move when you have nothing. To risk everything - losing your bed, your sense of community - for an uncertain benefit? There's no way you want to risk that."


JENNIFER LAURENT, director of a homeless shelter in Texarkana, Tex., on why few move to adjacent Arkansas where health insurance is more accessible.
