Expensive Beliefs

Faith: Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel. – Ambrose Peirce

The ANCYL is currently marching for “Economic freedom” – which for them means basically eliminating private property rights.

After all as Kris Kristofferson sang - freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose, nothing ain’t worth nothing but it’s free.

And once they find that nationalising the mines and the farms doesn’t work, they will start looking at other industries.

The freedom we desire is not the freedom of poverty – but the freedom to choose what you deal in and who you deal with. That freedom comes with private property.

We are all quite aware of the economic problems plaguing our country, and we kind of need some real solutions to those problems. Marches that call for a frankly Orwellian concept of freedom aren’t going to present them.
