End of the Republic

The American Republic is in decline. The decline is self-inflicted, a sort of suicide by choice. Why are people deciding to follow the "Road to Serfdom" over the "Road to Freedom"?

Freedom vs. collectivism

There are two trends in the US and a big fight is coming between those who want to bind us all together vs. those who want to keep individual freedoms alive and well.
The battle is between individualism (freedom) and collectivism.
How do we go about living our lives in a society with one another when one group (collectivists) want to tie people down and limit their freedoms while the other group wants to remain free? These are irreconcilable differences!!!!! We cannot have both in the same society!

The question is what to do next. Neither of us will likely ever shift to the other one’s point of view. So, what do we do when we are faced with this situation – especially where one of us wants a society that ties us all together and the other one wants to be free to go his own way? Those are two FUNDAMENTAL differences.

The only way to achieve peace between them is to go in the direction of freedom. In all cases of collectivism people like me are either killed, imprisoned, or exiled. In a free society, socialists and communists can exist – they can form their own voluntary organizations and participate as long as they want to whatever extent they want. The problem I have is when these same people want to use the FORCE of government to impose their values on others.

Freedom or death, mate. That is your only choice!
