Moral Disagreements

I have a moral problem with the mass killing of innocent people; the casualties of the Iraq war being just one small portion of democide that has occurred throughout recorded history.  So, the question remains as to what I should do about it.

Should I parade around in front of government office buildings with a peace sign?  Should I write letters to my congressmen asking them to please stop killing people?  Should I write news articles telling people that it is morally wrong to kill people?  Should I donate my time and money to the political campaign of a politician that promises to end the wars?

I have a moral problem with the public indoctrination “education” system; the casualties of the U.S. education system being just one small portion of propagandized youth throughout recorded history.

Should I parade around in front of government office buildings with a sign that decries our public education system? Should I write letters to my congressmen asking them to support education reform?  Should I write news articles telling people that it is morally wrong to support an education system with 50% graduation rates?  Should I donate my time and money to the political campaign of a politician that promises to end the public education system?

As it turns out, I have moral problems with practically everything the state does.  I morally disagree with conscription, drug laws, marriage licenses, permits to engage in commerce, wealth redistribution, fiat money, centrally planned interest rates, bank bailouts, cronyism, nepotism, etc.. etc.. etc..

I argue about these issues online.  I run an editorial news web site.  I submit articles to news websites.  I donate money to political campaigns.  I donate money to private organizations that promote libertarianism.  I donate my time to various organizations that work to stop what I find to be morally repugnant. – Yet nothing changes.

Nothing changes because I am prohibited from doing the ONE THING that will actually STOP morally repugnant behavior by the state.

You see, I can argue with a statist about the morality of war, public education, wealth redistribution, and all the rest; statists are perfectly fine and happy to argue with me about these issues.  However, if I withdraw my funding from those things which I find to be morally repugnant, well that’s just going a bit too far.  A statist will never really lose an argument to me, because in the end, they have a gun to my head.

    Yep… the only way to kill the beast is to starve it. Yet the beast controls the whole world.
