The Golden Scapegoat

Ever get tired of hearing how one group is always perpetrator of all of a person's woes in the world. Usually there is no solid causal evidence shared in regards to that groups sins. The problem is not with (insert your favorite hated group -corporations, businessman, etc) _______, but with the power to grant wishes and punish enemies. In other words, the evil of statism. The entitlement culture granted the government the power to grant wishes and punish their enemies. This automatically created a pressure group mentality (us vs. them, rich vs. poor, etc.) because no one wants to be on the receiving end of the punishment. Instead, each group fights for control of the government to grant the wishes of their special group and to punish the enemies of their group. The problem is not the individual groups (unions, business owners, corporations, rich, poor, etc), but the power of granting wishes and punishing enemies. The government’s sole moral purpose is to protect the individual rights of life, liberty, and property. There would be no reason to fight for control of the government, when it no longer has the power to control your life. This is why the Price of Liberty is Personal Responsibility. When we give the government the power of wishes; we take turns at playing master and slave. Instead we should strive to be personally responsible free individuals.
