THE THREE COMMANDMENTS OF FREEDOM

The Creed of Freedom is based on five principles. However, in day-to-day application, they
can be reduced to just three general codes of conduct. I consider them to be The Three
Commandments of Freedom:
INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS
Do not sacrifice the rights of any individual or minority for the assumed rights of the
group.
EQUALITY UNDER LAW
Do not endorse any law that does not apply to all citizens equally. 
FREEDOM OF CHOICE
Do not use coercion for any purpose except to protect human life, liberty, or
property.

THE THREE PILLARS OF FREEDOM
Another way of viewing these principles is to
consider them as the three pillars of freedom.
They are concepts that underlie the ideology of
individualism, and individualism is the
indispensable foundation of freedom.

I can't believe this stirred zero commentary! To be fair Mr. Griffin is preaching to the choir with me, still I found this essay to be a superlative comparison between what I call the blessing, (individualism), and the curse, (collectivism).

I look around the USA today and see a lot of pawns. People led by their emotions, maybe it is difficult in the face of the propaganda onslaught, but some of us manage.

You just need to start asking why. Why is state mandated healthcare so important to politicans? Why have they excluded themselves from its provisions? Why does our government provide hard cash to some of our largest financial institutions?

Yes I realize the propaganda center has answers to these questions, so the matter is, just how lazy are you that you refuse to question them even after all evidence suggests they are leading you to perdition?
