Everyone speaks as though we actually have freedom, and have even been free for quite some time now. But in reality we gave up our freedom when we started living together in societies. It was subtle at first, when neighbors miles apart from one another started putting up fences, that is when we needed laws deciding how we are going to live with one another. At that moment true freedom ended. Now as more and more people crowd together and their interaction with one another increase more and more laws must be made so we can live peaceably with each other. Each law restricts our freedom. Now we fight with each other over whose freedom will be eliminated next in the form of a brand new law. Every session congress goes to work, and every session they pass laws. If they did not pass laws they would not have a job. If we keep sending them back to Washington they will keep passing laws that limit our freedom even more. The first act of civilization was to declare freedom dead.
