Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

Once again a small number of evil people have determined to enslave the rest of mankind. Good people are ready to oppose tyranny. You have an opportunity to meet some of them at events coming to you soon.

Freedom is demonstrably, provably better than slavery. Freedom is better than tyranny, and, again, this can be proven. Logic, economics, health, conservation of natural resources, and inventiveness all support these conclusions. We are better off when we delegate fewer powers to others, keep our own original sovereignty, and build for a better tomorrow.

These conclusions became so clear by the 1970s that the postmodernist movement was founded to attempt to strip away logic, reason, and standards of accomplishment in the pretence that the undesirable, unwanted, hateful, and evil ways of authoritarian governments should be accepted even though they are clearly no good at all. The 262 million dead in government genocides and the 55 million dead in wars stand in mute testimony to the depth of evil involved in state authority.

Thousands of years ago, Jesus said that a wise man builds his home upon a rock. Rains, floods, and winds come and beat upon that house and it stands. A foolish man builds upon the shifting sands of expedience. All political systems, all authoritarian strategies are built upon sand. All of them fail. And, in failing, all such systems bring about misery for millions or billions of people. I invite you to put on the greatness you have within you, and be who you need to be to win freedom for yourself and your family.

If you want to rule yourself, if you want to work with other sovereign free people to build free communities, to engage in trade and commerce, to advance the cause of freedom, to get to the amazing future that awaits, you should find other people who think as you do. You can cooperate with them voluntarily to make our world better, for fun and for profit.

You won't find anyone at in Las Vegas later this month. It has been cancelled by tyrannical decree of the governor of Nevada. However, an emergency meeting of freedom enthusiasts is being organised, and will take place, so watch that page for details.

You can find some free people at the Jackelope Freedom Festival in the Sittgreaves National Forest in Arizona (near Heber Overgaard) in the first two weeks of August 2020. I attended in 2018 and 2019, and there are many good people there. I've not made arrangements to attend this year, but I'm willing to do so if I can find sponsors for that purpose.

You can find such people at the in Colorado 24 to 27 September 2020. I have made arrangements to attend, and the event is sponsored by as well as Houston Space Society, After Dark Publications, and the Resilient Ways Foundation.

You can find such people at MidFest in Oklahoma 10-11 October 2020.

You can find some at Luau East in Kentucky, 19 October 2020. Links and other information available in the near future.

You need to form teams, establish secure communications, make plans, and build for the future.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of good is for good people to cooperate. Your time is now.
