What is America’s greatest moral challenge?
(Jun 6, 2007)

The greatest moral challenge to America is relearning HOW to think, not what to think, so we may regain the ideas and concepts underlying the only rational code of moral epistemology ever discovered and implemented on Earth: inherent individual rights in the U.S. Constitution.

Boise, ID – Since it was asked but not answered at last night’s 3rd GOP presidential debate, the greatest moral issue America faces today is how to regain its intellectual code of rational individual rights morality and thus regain the concepts of limited government with an objective judicial system.

  Virtually every national and international problem today can be boiled down to a conflict between inherent individual rights vs. altruistic collectivism.  The underlying bankrupt premise that the highest moral ideal is the sacrifice of the individual to the collectivist church or collectivist state is the root cause of what ails America, and the entire world, today.

   In order to obtain the "sanction of the victim," as Ayn Rand would say, the collectivist church or state must first destroy the individual's rational consciousness, his ability to think.  This has already been accomplished through the major religions, including Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, and the state's public education system in which Johnny has purposely NOT been taught HOW to think.

   Sight thinking or disconnected spin-thinking has replaced categorized, consistently-principled, logical thinking as the predominant form of teaching our youth how to think – or rather, how NOT to think -- in the same manner as sight reading replaced phonetic reading and produced a nation of children who can’t read.  Now we have produced a nation of citizens who can’t think.

   Continually bombarded by the anti-individualist morality of the major religions’ fairytales and voodoo ethics, coupled with collectivist socialist sophisms, we have now replaced the moral epistemology of individual rights logic and reason with collectivist political slogans.  The individual’s freedom of speech, voluntary association, trade, religion, and choice of gold money has been replaced with an anonymous ethic of “public good,” “universal health,” “state welfare,” and “non-backed, non-collateralized, non-promissory counterfeit dollars” printed up for 3-cents per bill no matter what the denomination.  The stripping of value from America’s dollar is a de facto stripping of your individual rights, whether you can trace the logic or not.

   Thus, the welfare state collectivists had only one thing left to do to complete their moral takeover of America:  remove the major financial basis of free market capitalism, namely the gold standard, the only moral result of non-infringing individual rights, and replace it with counterfeit paper that can be expanded at will by the private central bankers.  Blurring both the conceptual and physical distinctions of a commodity (gold money) and a paper receipt for that commodity (the dollar) has ensured that those in power can commit any individual rights violations anywhere throughout the world by "legally" financing both sides of every war, by translating wealth and savings from others to themselves through churning fake “paper” in the markets, and continually providing Congress with unlimited deficit financing.

   Note that these collectivist atrocities have all occurred within the bankrupt moral philosophy of, “God is on our side.”  Across the ocean, the same collectivist atrocities against the individual are committed within the bankrupt morality of, “Allah is on our side.”  Evidently, Earth humans have yet to discover the moral basis for inherent individual rights.

   The greatest moral challenge to America is relearning HOW to think, not what to think, so we may regain the ideas and concepts underlying the only rational code of moral epistemology ever discovered and implemented on Earth: inherent individual rights in the U.S. Constitution.  That is Rep Ron Paul's challenge: to bring that message to the people of America, whether he is elected President in 2008 or not. – FM Duck
