"The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!" ~ Ludwig von Mises
Do You Know the Way to...Liberty?
Notice three distinctive features, not previously seen:
1. Everyone, not just "opinion leaders," is to be enlightened. No doubt, that will be a tough job with the hard core of government junkies; but remember that every human is rational at root, and that attitudes will change with time. There is a 23-year period involved here, and today's hard case will be less resistant when, two decades hence, he finds a sizeable fraction of his colleagues and neighbors telling him they no longer believe in government. He may even sense the coming collapse and want to prepare a parachute.
2. No action whatever will be asked of those who graduate from the School--except to replicate themselves once a year, as explained above. No political activism. No tax resistance. No sabotage. No violence. No emigration to the South Pole or to Outer Space. Nothing that each might not be inclined to do anyway. He will just be asked to live a normal life, to be patient, to study some more, to salivate for a free society pretty well exactly as we do here today on this web site and elsewhere, and to enjoy the anticipation of seeing it happen by 2027, well within the lifetimes of most who are reading this. The Plan would create 200-300 million "sleepers," awaiting completion.
3. Once the complete population understands and desires a ZGS, those of its members then working in some way for the government will simply walk away, like John Galt, and tell the boss to shove it - if the boss hasn't already quit, himself. Government will then evaporate like flatulence in the wind, for nobody will remain to work for it. Don't know about you, but that doesn't seem to me too hard. Re-educating someone isn't easy, but one a year for a maximum of 23 years seems achievable.
