❝Who Ya Gonna Call? Government or Ghostbusters?❞ by Foundation for Economic Education. Out of Frame

Comments

“2020 was an ugly year and so far, 2021 doesn’t look any prettier.

With mass lockdowns still enacted, businesses failing by the hundreds of thousands, rising suicides and drug overdoses, and a pandemic that still has yet to subside, things may seem bleak.

Surprisingly, the 1984 comedy classic “Ghostbusters” can teach us a lot about the situation we’re stuck in and how we can get out of it.

Hint: More government is not the answer.”

❝How the Elite Trap You in Their Unfree World❞ by Joe Jarvis

Comments

“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.”

❝The EARN IT Act Is a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing❞ by Decriminalize Sex Work

Comments

“The Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act of 2020, also known as the EARN IT Act, is a dangerous bill introduced by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. If it becomes law, it will end private communication on the internet.

The EARN IT Act is part of a long history of using sex panics to expand state power. If we fall for it this time we may effectively end freedom of expression and open communication on the internet as we know it.

EARN IT threatens website providers’ and other intermediaries’ ability to provide end-to-end encrypted services. End-to-end encryption is critical to ensuring private communication and often personal safety.

Like so many of the save-the-children bills before it, EARN IT will not combat child sexual exploitation, but it will be the largest expansion of state surveillance powers in recent history, eliminating private communication on the internet."

Tip of the hat to The Honest Courtesan.

❝Voice of Freedom❞ by Jim Kirk & The TM Singers

Comments

“This song was played frequently on KVIL in Dallas back in 1980. Until today, I had feared that this song was lost. When i came across a recorded performance today I was elated! It is a wonderful song of patriotism that this country really needs! Please watch it and share it with your friends and help revive the song!”

❝Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!❞ by John Stossel

“This 4th of July, when you watch the fireworks, will you think about the Declaration of Independence?

We should. After all, the holiday is meant to honor the Declaration. It, and the Constitution it led to, help keep us free.”
