“The word “freedom” brings out the communities of men to fight against every kind of force, against every kind of authority, even against God and the laws of nature. For this reason we, when we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase this word from the lexicon of life as implying a principle of brute force which turns mobs into bloodthirsty beasts.” – Protocols of Zion
“In the course of history no people has ever been made a present of freedom, and if freedom did cost nothing no people would ever keep it! Freedom has a high price, and men must ever struggle to preserve it.” – Adolf Hitler
The word “freedom” has frequently been used, and continues to be used in current times, by both malicious subverters and genuine radicals (not to mention the status quo authority) to rally support. It is a dangerous term, but danger is best dealt with not by running away from it, but by acquiring immunity to it. Therefore we advocate not dismissing the term as innately deceptive, but rather defining it to leave no scope for deception.
The opposite of freedom is slavery. Slaves are, by definition, not free. Does this mean that slaves have no liberty to do things they enjoy doing? No. The living conditions of many slaves throughout history were often moderately comfortable. They had decent food and housing, leisure time after work, private, familial and social lives of their own; some were even highly educated and contributed to academia. Most importantly, they were content with their lives. In fact, it is mostly in the slavemaster’s practical interest to make them feel as content as possible, so that they have no motivation to rebel.
They are slaves not because they are disallowed liberty, but because they are allowed liberty conditional upon obedience to the slavemaster. As such, clearly it is the pleasure of liberty itself by which they are enslaved, as their willingness to obey the slavemaster is proportional to their desire for the pleasure they can derive in return via the liberties given them. This is even more obvious when we consider the term “wage slave”, in which liberty takes the form of money, which can be used to fund a hedonistic lifestyle. To make clear this process of enslavement, liberties could be referred to as Goy biscuits.
Freedom, then, is emphatically not the same as liberty. Rather, freedom is the condition whereby obedience cannot be obtained by any offer of liberty. If we view liberties as the actions which the slavemaster has decreed can be performed with no negative consequences, then freedom is the willingness to face any and all possible negative consequences for one’s actions, for only in such a state of mind is one prepared to act against the slavemaster’s will without reservation or constraint. Most importantly, freedom cannot be given to anyone by anyone else; it is a purely spiritual idea.
The free man is the one who rejects the entire system of incentives (bribes) and disincentives (threats) by which a slavemaster exerts control. The free man is the one who cannot be bought. He may be a prisoner, but he is yet more free than the slave, for the very need to imprison him physically implies that he has refused to bargain spiritually with the slavemaster. Freedom is not liberty, but defiance.
Mel Gibson: “They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!”
Many people who would rather die than be enslaved, but more would rather be enslaved than die. And as long as it is the free who die and the slaves who live in every social upheaval, in other words as long as natural selection favours slavery over freedom, the situation will not improve. What can we do to change this?
