The problem with promoting liberty….

Is that freedom is a scary concept. Not just for the fact that there is no “Safety net” using money forcibly taken from your neighbors, but primarily due to a fear of ones neighbors. That person next door cannot be trusted! They allow their children to play in the front yard! They have no common sense! Long story short, is people don’t tend to fear government (as they should), they tend to fear their fellow man (which generally they shouldn’t).

I think that this is one of the biggest obstacles to the liberty movement (read agorist movement), is that people are not only distrusting (understandable) but are downright fearful of each other.

    It is a common criticism of collectivism that its conception of humanity is TOO optimistic in its assumption that humanity is (or can be) essentially harmonious. To quote the Gipper, “Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it, and hell where they already have it.”
