False Alarm: The Libertarian Revolution Has Not Begun

Libertarians don't understand that Freedom can not exist without a Virtuous people. (Socrates, Machiavelli, Locke. all Founders, etc). They "think" you can have "Justice" (a Virtue), without promoting Virtue in laws. All Just Laws have to promote Virtue (by definition), because if they promote Vice (sodomy) then they are Unjust Laws which are "Null and Void" according to John Marshall's jurisprudence. Their inability to understand our Supreme Law--"God-Given Rights" or "Rule of Law" "Higher Law" than man-made up arbitrary (evil) laws are extremely Marxist and troubling. We have "Vice" being promoted in our military by force of "Just Laws"????? Ha---that will force Virtue out of our military (Machiavelli) and collapse it.

You can't force people to be virtuous. We can barely force them not to rob and kill each other, and that with mixed success. Virtue doesn't come at gunpoint, it comes from a culture of virtue. The first thing we have to discard is the idea that legal equals virtuous.

I just saw a headline that made me think that libertarian fantasies somehow had turned into reality.

As you can see, 24 IRS employees were just arrested for stealing. But what about the other 105,976 bureaucrats at the Internal Revenue Service who seize our money under the implied threat of violence?

Shouldn’t they be arrested for stealing from us as well?

IRS Employees arrested

But then my bubble burst. The story has nothing to do with the injustice of the internal revenue code and the shakedown...
