Occasionally I will hear a seemingly well intentioned person utter the phrase: "There should be a law against that." I quickly correct them with the following argument:

Do you realize how many laws we already have? We have so many laws and regulations on the books that it is almost impossible for a normal person (especially in urban areas) to make it through the day without knowingly or unknowingly breaking the law.

You do realize that men such De Leon suggested implementing socialism through gradually increased laws and regulations? Did you know the our beloved "Land of the Free" has a higher per capita rate of incarceration than any other nation? Think about that, the average American is more likely to end up in prison than the average North Korean.


Yes, I know the war on drugs has a lot to do with that, but this is much bigger. Let's say I wanted to leave my home and live out of my truck in the mountains. In my state, the Federal government controls most of the land, I would likely be arrested or fined for homesteading on public land. If I wanted to start my own business, I would have to jump through an expensive and mind-numbing process of conforming with local, state, and federal anti-business regulations.

The whole point of this system is to demoralize the common person. To limit their ability to rise above being more than a cog in the grand socialist scheme. Now, I'm not making excuses for failure and mediocrity. No matter how repressive the system becomes, we still have the God given gift of agency and can rise above any hardship, if we are willing to pay the price. Never the less, it is much more difficult than it was a few decades ago, and if we keep adding more laws and regulations it will only get worse.

I do not consider myself Conservative or a Libertarian. I agree with both these groups on many issues, but I am neither. I am an anti-Marxist. On this issue, Libertarians are far less Marxist than Conservatives. Often, I see Conservatives say we need stricter laws. No, we don't need more laws, or stricter laws. As Reagan once declared:

"Government is not the solution, government is the problem."

You are not going to fix social problems with more laws. Can you not see that the more restrictive our laws become, the more lawless our society is becoming? I'm not advocating for an absence of laws, all orderly societies need laws. What I am advocating is that we only have laws which protect life, liberty, and property.

Then why are you so apposed to the homosexual movement?
Most of the what the homosexual movement is advocating is use of the government to force people into accepting and favoring them.  They want laws that restrict religious freedoms of individuals and organizations.  They want laws that make freedom of speech a hate crime.  They are a key tool of Cultural Marxist movements such as the Frankfurt School. In the grand scheme of things, the homosexual movement seeks to extinguish freedom. 

Our laws should not exist as a tool for the state to implement social engineering. This is nothing more than the state imposing their own form of morality; which in the end is designed to make religion obsolete. If you have listened to and read my words, you know that the destruction of other religions is one of the ultimate goals of the the Statist Church.

Whether they realize it or not, when a person argues for more laws, they are promoting the ideas of Marx.  When you hear someone wanting more laws, respectfully challenge the idea.  I do it all the time without offending people, so can you.

  1. Spot on Trestin!! Our main focus needs to be with conversion of hearts. Plus, there are so many laws and regulations that need to be eliminated.

    1. I was in Thailand this fall, and was amazed at all the freedom people there had. Simple thing like riding in the back of a truck, things I remember when I was a kid.

  2. Well, you had me until recognizing that equal protection under the law destroys liberty. Also, when you ignore that banning marriage equality tramples the religious liberty of the many religions that would like to carry out marriages for homosexual couples (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blessing_of_same-sex_unions_in_Christian_churches). Which is to say, until you hit your conclusion that ignores facts.

    1. Well, I think the silent majority would disagree.

  3. I have noticed that the older any state becomes the more laws it has. Seems that is almost always the case. Of course, more laws means a more repressive state and that continues until revolution comes and then we start the same old cycle over. This seems to me to be an unwritten law of nature.

    1. Very true, Ron. I can't think of any example of a government giving up power voluntarily.

  4. Enemies of a country can sneak an agent into the body of the Government, make laws that restrict and demoralize the public, so much so that the public throws up their hands and exclaim: what can we do to fight this!
    Then, the march to disarm the public with over whelming restrictive gun laws that the public says, to them selves what's the use of having guns.
    Like Now the Hollywood movie makers are about to make a movie about how bad the NRA is ruining the Country.
    The Quote I heard on the Radio from an interview with a Movie Mogul Producer = I am going to make the NRA wish they were never born!
    The bad guys think they have such a good grip on the Country that they are pounding on the Public more and more and from more directions that the Public will just give in.

  5. It is becoming more overt. I stopped watching TV (except for an occasional football game) years ago for that very reason. It is so full of propaganda, and most people are to uninformed to even notice it.

  6. There are so many laws at this point already, that millions of Americans are felon, and have no idea that they are.
