Ronin of the Spirit

Because reality is beautiful.

tears of william wallace

I’ve come to the most startling conclusion of all:

Most people love security and comfort more than freedom. Laws don’t make men, men make laws. Changing the laws to be more libertarian would not make a people who love freedom. Men are meat, history tends towards a meat grinder, and Constitutions are gravel. Freedom stills the crank, and fear turns it. We could make all the laws we want, the best slow down the destruction, the worst speed it up.

Freedom is what really matters. Good laws make men who are in their hearts slaves and masters relate as free men, but it doesn’t touch the heart. Men either love freedom or hate it. Most hate it because freedom truly means “being totally responsible”. Most people really prefer to blame their failure on someone besides themselves.
