Liberty is the absence of ideology

Revolution usually comes from the left and revelation from the right. This is not name-calling, it’s an observation of life.   Revolutions have seldom led to success for the revolutionaries or those they proposed to help.  Revolutions are usually based on an idea, an ideology, which has become incredible.

Ideologies collapse under their own weight because they were created atomistically…they are theories created in isolation (which is normal) but then not reconnected and tested against the empirical realities of life before being put into practice.  The ideology did not fit the reality.  In other words, they are impractical.  As the saying goes, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”   Ideologies are subsets of reality that may be totally rational as a subset theory, but collapse when interconnected to the facts of reality.  The theoretician did not connect all the dots. Thus, Keynesian economics collapses. Socialism and communism collapse.  Atheism collapses.  Moral relativism collapses.

Fascists and tyrants almost always are overthrown in violent revolution by the people or else the chaos of war.  When people spend their lives, energies, resources and hopes on ideologies and then their ideology collapses, these people become angry and hateful.  Rage and hate can come from any direction, but like today, it usually comes from the left because the left tends to cling to ideologies and disregards natural connections.  When the left finally realizes their mistake, then they finally revolt.  The right has been waiting.  A more successful model of adaptation is to overthrow the erstwhile tyranny when their direction becomes clear and before they entrench their power in government.

Absolutes come from the right.  Those absolutes were always there as natural laws.   We progressively become aware of them as we go through life, or we ignore or forget them.  The absolutes of natural laws eventually are revealed even if hidden, thus they are revelations.  There are absolute rights and wrongs, contrary to the claims of moral relativists for the last 100 years.

Liberty is the absence of ideology.  The path which increases liberty provides the best chance to adapt to the natural changes in life.  But, our intuition about change is not always correct.  We tend to overlook the many but reproducible fractals that occur in natural absolutes.  In the real world, change over time is rarely if ever a straight rational line from point A to point B.  It is a curve-fitting, an adaptation.  Ideologies inhibit if not prohibit adaptation, denying liberty.

The commonly accepted belief about Darwin’s theory of evolution is that it is the strongest who survive.  But Darwin did not say that.  It is not the strongest who survive, but rather it is the most adaptable who survive.

One hundred and forty million years ago reptiles began adapting, changing into what we know today as birds.  And almost all of that genetic code is still in your DNA today, in addition to the genetic code of bacteria and most other forms of life.    At the present rate of expanding knowledge, humans will be able to personally control and change their DNA code and other forms of biological code in 100 years or less.  However, there will be fractals of natural laws of which we are not yet aware because we are living among them and discovering them as we go.  The consequences are today unknown, but it would be a denial of natural law to prohibit the inevitable experiments.  For example, the first humans who decide to grow wings and fly may also discover that they cannot also regenerate their internal organs and thus cannot extend their lifespan.  Or those who decide to extend their lifespan indefinitely may also discover that they also become unable to have children.  Fractals are the natural changes in absolute laws which occur at event horizons.  Today, we cannot predict what the outcome of these experimental events will be, but natural law (in this example: entropy always increases and is thermodynamically irreversible) says that these experiments in adaptation will occur.  Life is an expanding fractal.

Life will continue changing and expanding.  Adaptation is accepted theory, not an ideology.  An ideology is a rationale based on assumptions.  Resistance to adaption is futile and self defeating if continued.  This means that you should discriminate.  Discrimination is itself a natural law of survival.  The immune system is the origin of the nervous system including the brain, which is fundamentally a system of discrimination and self defense based on fractal differentiation, a testing of fractal molecular variations until a successful fit to form succeeds.  Denial of your natural ability to discriminate, to decide, to judge what is best for yourself and your family is denial of nature itself, a denial of reality.  Reject political correctness.  Judge and let yourself be judged.

Increasing government control by any mechanism contradicts the natural law of entropy and is obviously moving in the wrong direction, which is moving in the direction of self-destruction.  The objective of governments today and their bureaucracy is to maintain the status quo for those in power.  Growth of the bureaucracy is built into the technology of government management.  In stark contrast, the bold, genius objective of the U.S. Constitution – including its first 10 amendments known as the Bill of Rights – is to protect people’s liberty, since liberty is a right derived from natural laws and God.  The Constitution and Bill of Rights were specifically designed to protect the people from their government, to limit government.  (Don’t believe me.  Read the papers of the founders and framers to discover their genius.)

Anyone wishing to subvert and change the Constitution is your enemy.  Today, there are many and we count the President among them.  Demonstrably, the group of enemies includes members of Congress, many in the boated bureaucracy and certain members of the U.S. Supreme Court.  Their intent and actions are to defeat liberty by blurring the lines drawn in the Constitution, by convincing you that the Constitution is a “living document,” that it should be subjugated to international laws, and by introducing confusion and  changes in laws which defy natural laws.  They persuade you in mass media that we should tolerate behaviors that we abhor.

For example, redistribution of wealth by anything other than the freely shared gift by an individual is rejection of natural law and acceptance of an unproven hypothesis of collective consciousness.  This is true regardless if proposed by a church, a government or a non-governmental organization and for whatever reason it might be proposed.  This   redistribution hypothesis is derived from the ideology of “social justice,” a belief-based ideology (as opposed to a theory or law which has been empirically tested) which encompasses moral equivalence, moral relativity, multi-culturalism and supposed “rights” (which are really choices) specific to an identified group.  It is the in-vogue means of persuasion for political conspirators to control you.  A free man will stand against it with all his being.

So-called “social justice” is the ideology derived from collectivism which is being used, has been used since the 1950’s, to ‘close the American mind’ in the words of the late philosopher Allan Bloom.  Everything, for example the social cost of carbon, is to be judged based on “social justice.”  If you believe that, then you are signing up for Aryanism,  Nihilism, more divisiveness and more of the everlasting war predicted in the dystopian book “1984” by George Orwell.

    Well said. I avoid those who KNOW they know what is right for you and me. I know what’s right for me, so far (I learn hard, but I learn good), but I won’t venture a guess as to what is right for you.

    Bud – This post contains more than one read can do justice. I look forward to rereading. John.
