#49 - Ron Paul and the Non-Agression Principle

Some people try to attack Ron Paul on this or that, usually very weak attacks due to Ron Pauls consistent integrity that makes it hard to really slam the guy. Although, if you want to buy into very unfound smear tactics that usually take advantage of his supporters you don't have to like Ron Paul or his supporters. Why? Cause his campaign has nothing to do with him or his supporters, it has to with a message.

A Message of Freedom

It's this message that underlines all the writings I've talked about from Robert Nozwick, Isaiah Berlin, and so many more. It's all about freedom, and if you love freedom it's hard not to love the message no matter what form it comes in cause it benefits everyone. The message itself has no fault and no bias and neutralizes bias from anyone who wields it. True freedom from any individual, is still true freedom. Beware the seller of fake freedom in the guise of Security and Welfare.

Epicurus is earliest speaker of the non-aggression principle:

"The justice of nature is a pledge of reciprocal usefulness, neither to harm one another nor be harmed."

This idea would come from many greats mind, and most influentially out of the mouth of Thomas Jefferson:

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

It's this principle of true freedom Ron Paul is fighting, if you believe in freedom from tyranny, freedom from the chains that restrain true life, join the Freedom Movement and remove the bondage from which past generations have suffered so the generations to come will not suffer even the smallest crumb of tyranny we may have suffered.

For a full description of the "non-aggression principle" try L. Niel Smiths definition. Thanks for bringing this up Alex.
