NOTE: THIS BLOG IS ROOTED IN LIBERTARIAN SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC PHILOSOPHY.  THEREFORE, THE BASIC POLITICAL AND SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY BEHIND ALL COMMENTARY ON CURRENT EVENTS IS A BELIEF IN PEACEFUL AND LAWFUL EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE. FOR CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE THE RELEVANT INSTITUTIONS OF SOCIETY ARE INTRACTABLE FOR A PROTRACTED PERRIOD OF TIME TO ALTERING LIFE NEGATIVE CONDITIONS, PEACEFUL CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, AS ADVOCATED BY GHANDI AND DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., IS RECOMMENDED. WHERE THERE IS ANY REAL ALTERNATIVE TO THE USE OF MILITARY FORCE, “SOUL FORCE” IS ALWAYS PREFERABLE. INDEED, USE OF FORCE IS USUALLY COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.  THAT SAID, THE RIGHT TO REVOLUTION IS IN THE CORE OF AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE RECOGNIZED BY THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE BASED ON NATURAL LAW.  WE DO NOT DERIVE OUR FUNDAMENTAL NATURAL RIGHTS FROM GOVERNMENTS AND STATES.  WE ARE BORN WITH THESE RIGHTS AS GIFTS FROM OUR CREATOR.  OUR GOVERNMENT DOES NOT “GIVE” US OUR RIGHTS AS SET OUT IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.  THE CONSTITUTION RECOGNIZES OUR INHERENT NATURAL RIGHTS BY POSITIVE LAW. IT CANNOT TAKE THEM AWAY BY DECLARATIONS OF PANDEMICS OR SUDDEN “EMERGENCIES.”  WE HAVE A RIGHT TO THE SANCTITY OF OUR BODY, TO BE FREE FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHS AND SEIZURES, TO WORK, THINK FREELY AND EXPRESS OURSELVES FREELY, TO MOVE AND TRAVEL ABOUT WITHIN STATES AND BETWEEN STATES, DUE PROCESS, ETC. THE CENTRAL ROLE OF ALL GOVERNMENT IS TO PROTECT THE CORE FUNCTIONS OF LOVE, WORK, AND KNOWLEDGE. – DR. STEVEN KATZ
