Inherent Rights

Because all are created equal, and endowed with certain inalienable rights, it takes all to stand for those rights. The moment we allow consciously, those rights to be stolen or trampled upon is the moment that our own rights become violate, our own freedom curtailed, our own futures to be shadowed or snuffed. My rights end where yours begin and yours end where mine begin. All equal, do not tread on me and I won't tread on you. It's really very simple and easy to understand.

Right now I am not sure where the world is going. I'm alarmed at what I see and have seen over the past decade plus. I believe we're on a course, globally, that will end terribly for all humans.

Our governments are out of control, politicians do nothing but lie and mislead, they no longer represent the people but rather nothing but special interests and global elites, all of which could care less about the general state of affairs of everyone else. OR, they use misguided emotionalism to power through laws that are resulting in and will result in further calamity and tyranny.

This is not a left right argument here in the states or anywhere else in the world where people are facing tyranny and oppression, who die by remote control or starve to death as a result of overfed political strata drunk on their own false power. Wedges between ideologies prevent civil discourse, our current trajectory of divergence cannot be altered without integrity and truth returning to front and center. It is NEVER permissible to abuse one group of people for the benefit of another, ever. What is mine is not yours, and what is yours is not mine, we know this truth to be obvious yet we are allowing our political leaders to violate that truth. I should be safe from you and you should be safe from me but yet again we watch as our ability to be defenders of our own safety is violated.

Take off the blinders, realize the road we are on, all of us, not just here in the states but globally.

The hope remains that the millions and millions awaken to realize the terrible future we are all faced with, through sheer numbers of vocal, dedicated, committed citizens of the world united in the cause of liberty, freedom, and inherent rights. If we don't do this, if we simply watch the world and our future burn then we have no one to blame in the end, but ourselves.

That video and the below commentary is from The Natural Rights Foundation.

Human societies are guided and held together by ideas and a shared sense of morality.

When the People lose sight of those foundational principles, corruption and dictatorial power inevitably take root, and once criminal elements have taken control of society it becomes harder and harder to unseat them.

As this process of deterioration progresses there comes a point of no return where real change can no longer be achieved from within the existing system. We've reached that point some time ago. It's time to come to terms with that and adjust our actions accordingly.

We face a situation right now where the electoral process has become little more than theater,and the political awareness of the population has been reduced to petty bickering over emotionally charged wedge issues,all the while those running the show remove our freedoms one by one and draw us ever deeper into undeclared wars of aggression.

The only way that we can change course is by organizing a unified front outside the existing system.
Not as a political party, not as a left wing or a right wing ideological faction, but as a people.

Unified not in protest of this broken and corrupt system but with rather under a set of principles...
principles that will lay the foundation to rebuild on.

Any right that is a true human right is inherent. Such rights are not granted by government, they are not privileges bestowed by society, or created by documents, therefore such rights cannot be regulated, limited or revoked by any such power. Any supposed authority which seeks to strip a Natural Right from the People is illegitimate, and should be dealt with accordingly.

The most common way that rights are subverted is through the assertion of rights which are not rights at all.
There was a time when it was accepted by all that Kings had the right to kill at a whim and to take the freedom and the property of any of his subjects at will. The divine right of kings is a false right. This is obvious to us now. However, each era is blind to its own darkness.

Before we can even begin to understand the nature of rights we first answer one question honestly...
and follow the implications to their logical conclusion.

When... is violence... justified?

It's a simple question, and there is only one sane answer.
The only morally acceptable context for violence is defense.

That answer is often referred to as the non-aggression principle. It's a fancy name for an obvious and simple truth, but simple truths carry the most devastating implications when applied to the real world. 


  1. And this is not limited to the U.S. of A.
    It is a global problem. Every nation today haces similaar problems. It is time that we, the commoners, stand up....

    Thanks for posting this, AG.

  2. Great post, well written. So I guess the step is to try and spread the message, get more people to understand and want change. Still seems like a lot of talk in the face of real problems. don't vote, that just gives legitamacy to them.

  3. Aggie at Shoestring Manor links to you and I make it a point to read everything you write. That said-- and I know this is silly-- Aggie nominated my blog (I'm a huge fan of 2A) for a Liebster Award and I, in turn, am nominating you. You can read all about it here: http://bigfoodetc.blogspot.com/2013/03/its-honor-to-be-nominated.html#more

    And if you are not interested in participating, no worries.

    Looking forward to your next post.

  4. This article fits right in with your post on Inherent Rights... "If they come for your guns, do you have a responsibility to defend yourself?" Link below. Thanks, abo4ster
