Pondering the issues of Liberty in my personal life

While I am sorting out my thoughts on religions, let me give you a quick one on one of my recent subjects: rights.
I came across this video on Learnliberty.org. Watch it, it’s only four minutes. I highly recommend the site, this is the first video I am having issues with. (…..and if you do not want to watch it, you can find the transcript at the end of this post.)

Yesterday I came across a YouTube video where John King is asking the progressive gotcha question from Ron Paul in the First GOP debate in 2012. That reminded me of another debate from before the primaries where Wolf Blitzer asked the same sleazy question from the same candidate.
Although it may seem not particularly timely to post something about a debate of the Republican primaries that happened over a year ago, I think both the question and the answer are timeless. Democrats, socialists, leftists constantly throw this question at people who are opposed to the notion of government run health care.

I read Leo Taxil when I was fourteen years old. “The Amusing Bible” is the classic and definitive ‘attack’ on the bible (I read it in Hungarian; I cannot find a link to an English translation, it may not exist).
Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Michael Shermer are old news for me. Read more of this post

My point about abortion is made, but I would like to use another subject I seem to have difficulties to walk away from to illustrate the point I made about laws in my last post.
I don’t exactly know what homophobia is, but I do not think that I am suffering from that curious mental illness. I don’t fear them, I don’t hate them, I can’t even say that I disapprove. I simply don’t care. Whatever makes them happy. What I do care about, is the politics. That, I have problems with and I would finally like to explain to you why.

When I finished my second post about abortion, I promised two more on the subject.
Libertarians won’t like this, but I must declare that I do not believe in natural rights. There is absolutely nothing “natural” about rights. What we get from nature is an imperative, a drive to survive. Since we are both social and thinking animals, over a very, very long time of social and intellectual evolution we rose above the biological imperative and came to a general agreement on some basic rules to help the survival of our species.

My blog is a year old today. Time for some self-evaluation.
It is said that over 90% of blogs are abandoned within a year. 80% will not make it over a month. The fact that I am still here is already good news and I am definitely not planning to go away.
I would like to thank all of my readers for being with me, for liking, commenting and following, for agreeing or disagreeing with what I have to say. I appreciate your comments more than you know.
