Limited Risk

Common Genius, the American experiment in rational radicalism in the self interest by and for the rights of man with all its’ caveats. Not before or since has there been a unique and constitutionally bonded government; as originally proclaimed, that contains check and balances within the Federal government. Thomas Paine in Dissertations on first principles of government wrote, “It is all times necessary…until right ideas confirm themselves by habit, that we frequently refresh our patriotism by reference to first principles. It is by tracing things back to their original origins that we learn to understand them, and it is by keeping that line and that origin in view that we never forget them.”

Value your freedom and its’ virtues; the American Revolution did not create a template for limited risk and fairness to all. What the sophistos behind the blackboard seem to dismiss is the common thread between opportunity and the citizen. By embracing the principles of the Scottish enlightenment the founders responded to the tyranny of the then current government proxy from Britain. Born from Smith’s Classical model of economics were four standards, thrift, hard work, enlightened self-interest and benevolence toward fellow citizens…you know, virtues. Secondly; government should limit its activities to administer justice, enforce private property rights, engage in certain public works and to defend the nation against aggression and not turn its aggression upon the citizens and to work the public over by institutionalizing risk.

How about free trade, lower taxes, minimal bureaucracy and constitutional restraint. Adam Smith defended the ideas that natural liberty and a self regulating system of competitive free enterprise and limited government would eventual free the world of mercantilism and the heavy handed intervention by the state. Now you statists do realize your heroes of the state with the likes of Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, Castro ad nauseam, reflects the vacuum of the sophistos’ reality.

To take liberty with in its’ frame work of optimism and to reduce it to a principle of precautionary logic is systematically reducing risk to a method of control and limitation of the natural risk of capitalism. Limitations on risk compound the reason for liberty…devaluing constitutional establishment of the origins of the principle of liberty does not reform the limits of the value of risk. To create a governmental opiate by seducing its’ citizens into a vagabond of the statist derivative in regulating the individuals’ magnum opus, reclaims a path to tyranny and limitless relativism. Mans’ freedom to self-realize without interference from the post modernist leaves one inherently important risk, the rights of man are seldom won by relenting but by the consecration of the will to be free from limited risk of utopian failures.
