Liberty Control becomes a farce with the absurd idea of knife Control.

Published

on

The Liberty grabbers have just parodied themselves into non-existence with the absurd notion of restricting edged weapons.

Let’s begin with this brutal reality: Bladed weapons can be easily made of any material that can hold an edge. They have been around for millions of years, they literally defined the stone age.

Anything that can hold an edge can be made into an easily concealed weapon.

They only need a material that can hold an edge and a way to make it sharp. These materials range from the stone to hard candy. with almost every solid material in between. It’s well known that these weapons are easily produced within the confines of maximum security prisons.

Nevertheless, the Liberty grabbers have gone to the absurd length of trying to control these weapons with calls for their removal from kitchens or detection by ‘Knife wands’. Not only are these weapons easily produced under the strictest of conditions but they can also be made of non-metallic materials, undetectable by non-invasive search methods. In addition, edged weapons can also be easily concealed, making them easily hidden from even the most invasive search methods.

Therefore, it should be obvious that society cannot control these weapons. Any attempts at the level of control necessary to carry out this task will inevitably fail. This type of control of Liberty will be to the detriment of the innocent since they will be rendered helpless in the face of criminal or terroristic threats.

The Liberty grabbers never give up trying to control people.

However, that hasn’t given pause to the Left in trying to push the authoritarian envelop into untold reaches of insanity. Never mind that Liberty control doesn’t work as advertised or that each failure means they will try to punish the innocent even further. Each failure of the Left’s Socialist national agenda only means they double down even more. Even the perennial “Cut down on the carnage” excuse fails since on balance because more people will be adversely affected by these controls on their freedom. Meanwhile, the government becomes more empowered while innocent people are killed.

The UK is showing everyone the future if the Liberty grabbers get their way.

The UK has reached a point where the sheer insanity of Liberty control has imploded in on itself. The imposition of private property controls (Intergalactic Background Checks) will be followed by gun registration. All of this setting for their final solution of Gun Confiscation, where the very same situation will happen, with the same tragic results.

It’s time to end the insanity of Liberty Control.

Repeatedly doubling down on the insane notion of trying to control the guilty by punishing the innocent has to stop at some point. We need to learn from their mistakes to halt this absurd process before it goes any further. As Benjamin Franklin once mused: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The people wanting to defend themselves will have to declare enough is enough with these absurd measures knowing that both Liberty and safety are at stake.

Differential equations teaches us that one can use the initial conditions of the present to extrapolate events in the near term balanced with the knowledge of the past. The interaction of technological advances and the march of history is fascinating. History can inform those willing to listen as to what will happen in the future because the laws of human natural are as immutable as the elegant equations of Newtonian physics.

    Guns yesterday. Knives today. Piano wire tomorrow. All wire next week. Then sticks and stones. Avert your eyes.

    There is only one rational response to these people and that is to declare the obvious, which is that they are functionally insane, and institutionalize them.
    Only the threat of the loss of ~their~ liberty will have a chilling effect on this sort of irrational utterance and action.
    If you study recent history, ~real~ history, not the propaganda that is the standard fare for most current curriculum, you will soon find that the drift into insanity coincides with the ACLU efforts to close most of the Mental Institutions. Prior to the 1950s nobody would have dared even utter these ideas outside of a sand-boxed classroom setting where the many manifestations of insanity are discussed. To do so would be asking for a commitment order to be issued for an extended stay at the local Laughing Academy.

Video: What is a Classical Liberal?

Published

A short video making the point that the Left is no longer Liberal, having traded individualism for collectivism.

In one of their first animated video shorts, the Rubin Report discusses the vitally important topic of just who is a Classical Liberal.

OUR FIRST ANIMATED VIDEO! What is a Classical Liberal?

Liberalism has been confused with Leftism or progressivism, which is actually has nothing to do with classical Liberalism. Sadly the Left is no longer Liberal at all for it has traded individualism for collectivism.

$.02: When is it OK to quit church?

Published

on

Chris Sonsken of South Hills Church and founder Church BOOM penned a piece on Fox News that caught my attention on Twitter. It was a good column. Read the article here. The article addressed a Pew Research finding as to why people change churches. There finding as shown by Sonsken are:

  • Sermon quality
  • Welcoming environment/people
  • Style of worship
  • Location

Sonsken does a great job in arguing that there are biblically sound reasons for leaving a church and finding a new one.

1. It’s OK to leave if God calls us to leave.

2. It’s OK to leave for family and marriage.

3. It’s OK to leave a church if you have moved too far away to conveniently drive to your church.

4.  It’s OK to leave if you cannot follow the church’s leadership.

5.  It’s OK to leave if heresy is being preached.

Sonsken even mentions that unethical practices like abuse are reasons to leave, though not the norm for the majority of church swapping.

The reasons Sonsken gave are no cause for disagreement, and I’m sure his book Quit Church probably better articulates them.

Where I want to add my two sense on the matter is that I disagree with his assessment sermon quality is not a biblical reason for changing churches. The supposition that sermon quality is inherently a result of the person treating church like an object of consumption, as Sonsken suggests is not true. I believe sermon quality is an umbrella term for several reasons for not liking a Sunday message.

Too often people leave a church because of disagreement, not getting their way, or because the sermons are no longer deep enough. Often when we dig into the reason the sermons are not deep enough, it ultimately goes back to the person being offended or not having their faulty theologies endorsed from the pulpit. The same pastor who was previously deep enough becomes shallow once there is an offense. It’s incredibly difficult to hear from God in a sermon when we are offended by the person delivering the sermon.

This is true in many cases. A sin that is personal gets preached on and the offended party leaves. I don’t deny this to be the case. But I believe we should look deeper into the current trends of worship and focus on the mission of the church.

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-21 ESV

The church is to preach the gospel, but people accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior is only part of the mission. The Church is tasked with making disciples. The church is meant to teach. Not every follower is at the same level in their spiritual maturity or theological depth. Some churches, larger churches in particular dumb down the bible. In public education, this would be seen as lowering the bar. In church this practice could hold back believers in their growth. Small groups are a way to supplement this, and every church should employ bible study as a means to grow discipleship.

Many churches now are focused on metrics. This can lead to theologically watered down sermons and worship. Why risk offending that person who may leave with a sermon? But if a church is more focused on using a Sunday message to give a motivational speech using an out of context passage, what does it matter if they are doctrinally sound (in their written beliefs)?

There are a lot of heretical churches in America. We have issues like gay marriage to separate the sheep from the goats. But what about the sheep that suck? If a church has the right doctrine but is more focused on metrics than the power of the Holy Spirit, their head is in the wrong place. So it is biblically sound to change churches so that your head to remains in the right place.

That is not treating church like a consumer product. That is treating church like one’s means to grow spiritually, better recognizing the mission of the Great Commission.

That is my $.02 on the matter. I hope I added some meaningful word to this topic.

Video: So, You Think You’re Tolerant?

Published

Leftists like to fancy themselves as being tolerant and Liberal, but they fall way short in both qualities.

Leftists will tell you that they are the most tolerant people who have ever lived, they will also scream at you for being a racist, xenophobic troglodyte if you happen to mention that you’re a conservative. They are supposedly ‘Liberal’, being in favour of Liberty while demanding it’s polar opposite – socialism.

Yes, if there is one constant in the universe, its that Leftists cannot be honest about who they truly are. This is what we love about our wonderful opponents on the nation’s socialist Left, for they are nothing like another group that went by the same nomenclature who also screamed at people in the streets with the motto: Common Good Before Individual Good. [Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz]

But let’s not talk about the epithets they project on their enemies, let’s talk about how they get along with everyone who just happens to agree with everything they say. A new PragerU video featuring Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report looked at who is really tolerant. He is a true Liberal that discovered that it is actually the Pro-Liberty Right that is more tolerant, go figure.

Are you tolerant? You probably think so. But who is tolerant in America today? Is it those on the left, or those on the right? In this video, Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report analyzes this question and shares his experience.
