Civilization Lost

Western Civilization was formed as man’s work and the resulting work produced created the need for an economical system which motivated the development and creation of systems of laws. As humans graduated from hunting and gathering thru farming and the resulting marketing, rules of behavior necessarily developed along with polite manners to protect the work product of the individual and his related possessions. Laws were created to protect those manners and specifically the work products of individual labor. (1)

When laws are created to change civilization, rather than the natural order of civilization creating laws, we have a direct assault on the motivation to acquire individual work product. If others can assume control over the fruits of your labor then the motivation to labor will be infringed. We will then have little motivation to work and create. Absent adherence to the natural law created by the natural advancement of civilization, there will necessarily be created in its place a disunity and a restless dissatisfaction. This will of course result in a decrease in the availability of goods and services.

Without the natural order of economic development as the foundation of civilization and the laws created to protect it, civilization as we know it will have no solid foundation upon which to exist.

Thus once man has been deprived of this natural formation of a system of laws, and men become above the law, Men will find the need to recreate a civilization through reason or revolution or a combination of the two.

Hence, once the Obama administration ends, there is an opportunity to recreate civilization, that is self rule as we know it. Should Clinton or Sanders become president, the opportunity will be lost or at best postponed, since their intention is to ignore law and seek to redistribute wealth to those who did not create it.

The question remains can our form of self government survive another round of Obama style leftist fascism? If the answer is no, then we will have an solemn obligation to reclaim our government. I pray it will be through reason and intellect and not revolution.

The Return to Serfdom

Having not read Frederick Hayek since 1970 or so, it was a thrill to receive an abridged edition of “The Road to Serfdom” from the Heritage Foundation.

“The Road to Serfdom” deserves the undivided attention of the reader. In a moment of indulgence time was set aside to dedicate myself to the effort, just before nap time of course. Being an undisciplined sort, rather than starting at the beginning, I allow fate to show me what it wants me most to see.

The booklet opens itself to the following:

“Individualism, in contrast to socialism and all other forms of totalitarianism, is based on the respect of Christianity for the individual and the belief that is desirable that men should be free to develop their own individual gifts and bents. This philosophy, first fully developed during the Renaissance, grew and spread to what we now know as Western Civilization. The general development of social development was one of freeing the individual from the ties which bound him in feudal society.”

In recent years we have witnessed a brazen attempt by the powers of socialism to infect and weaken the Bill of Rights and thus our individual God given freedoms. The ties that increasingly bind man in slavery to a feudal society are often tightened around his neck with his permission, a permission that once given is near impossible to rescind. The call for abandoning your freedom’s for “the greater good” is in actuality a call to abandon liberty for a new nationalism, in this case socialism, the precursor to fascism and replacement for faith.

As Hayek further states:

“They do not realize that democratic socialism, the great utopia of recent generations is not only unachievable — but produces something utterly different — the destruction of freedom itself.”

If you loosen the chains of your pet they may run off but he will also be free to protect you and care for you. Risk is necessary in order to truly live. God blessed us with the opportunity to make our living worthy of his creation.

God created man, not government. Life without bureaucrats may be considered by the haughty to be tarnished, but at least the lives will be our own.
