Heritage Mourns Loss of Walter Williams
“Walter Williams was an American hero. Born in poverty, raised by a single mother in the projects of North Philadelphia, a college drop-out, he overcame all types of adversity to become a nationally renowned professor, economist and columnist. ”
“The government is a big trap designed to keep people in its orbit.
You are supposed to work within the context the government provides to live your life, make money, and affect social change.
Or you're at least supposed to be too afraid of the government to step out of line.
But even rebelling against the government directly is part of the trap. It means you have accepted the importance of the government-- that it is capable of controlling you.
Harry Browne identified different "traps" like these that we fall into in his 1973 book, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World.”
