Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

“If everyone relied less on political celebrities, if everyone stopped waiting for a knight on a white horse, or a feminist icon, a crusade to fight or a social justice mob to join and started determining their own futures; if everyone began looking far more carefully at the people behind the curtain, then perhaps we could finally see a change in humanity not seen in thousands of years.  Not a collectivist change, but an individualist change, which is the only kind of change everlasting or worth a damn.”
Brandon Smith

“As citizens of this nation, it’s important to understand that it was a group of states that came together to form a nation, not the other way around. This freedom is our baby, not the federal government’s. The people gave it life. The people saw it through tough times. We the people decide what options are on the table, and we don’t need permission from the government we created to ensure that it continues to serve us as we see fit.”
Dallas Brooks

“Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of its way.”
Henry David Thoreau

“The well-being – even the survival – of our species itself, depends on upon the full expression of the life force that is found only within individuals. This importance is best served by social systems in which decision-making is diffused among individuals. Life belongs to the living, not to soulless abstractions to which we have conditioned ourselves to be subservient.”
Butler Shaffer

“If the flag is symbolic of the Constitution, that Constitution died long ago — destroyed by a crony railroad lawyer and mercantilist who made war on a sovereign people to benefit monied interests.
If the flag is symbolic of freedom, that freedom no longer exists — stolen long ago by crony corporations and globalist banksters and unaccountable oligarchical black-robed satanists and idol worshippers who usurped their authority created laws out of thin air under the guise of ‘interpreting the Constitution’ a dictate not granted them under the original document.”
Bob Livingston

“I prefer to think of mankind as having no preconceived fate, but as a species whose varied, individual interests combine with their spontaneous and self-directed characters to respond to nature’s continuing demand for success: to be a changing person in a changing world, for whom peace and the inviolability of individuals prevails.”
Butler Shaffer

“Don't place blind faith in politics. Learn to respect your own power. Your ability to change the world isn't defined by who you vote for. You have a much greater capacity for creating a freer society through innovation and individuality than what mainstream media would have you believe. To hell with sitting around waiting for politicians to save us. Have some vision. Have some creativity. Have some self-respect. Have some self-determination.”
T.K. Coleman

“Only to members of the military are we urged to say, ‘Thank you for your service.’ Toward the great entrepreneurs who extend our lives and make them more fulfilling, we are taught to be envious and resentful. They are most certainly not thanked for their service.”
Lew Rockwell

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.”
H.L. Mencken
