Women’s History Month

The Cato Institute pays homage to Three Women Who Resurrected Classical Liberalism

 Mothers of the Libertarian Movement.

Isabel Paterson, Rose Wilder Lane, and Ayn Rand

For those of you who may not know it, Classical Liberalism, is the foundation upon which this country was founded.  The tennants of classical liberalism includes the importance of human rationality, individual property rights, natural rights, the protection of civil liberties, individual freedom from restraint, equality under the law, constitutional limitation of government, free markets, and a gold standard to place fiscal constraints on government as exemplified in the writings of John Locke, Adam Smith, David Hume, David Ricardo, Voltaire, Montesquieu and others.

Three Women who in the early 1940s unabashedly defended individualism and free-market capitalism in an age that widely considered American capitalism dead and socialism the future. In 1943, Isabel Paterson, Rose Wilder Lane and Ayn Rand published three groundbreaking books (The God of the Machine, The Discovery of Freedom and The Fountainhead), which laid the foundations of the modern libertarian movement.

Communitarianism, New Word Meaning, John Q. Public is Screwed! or will be soon…

In January 2008 Former President Bill Clinton addressed a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, here is a quote from his speech.

“Communitarianism is a movement that considers individualism an impediment to society uniformly adopting values the movement considers appropriate, including authoritarian gun control.”

So, do you think your individual freedoms are safe?

Clearly these pompous elitists think they are smarter and better than everyone else.  In reality they are just a rehash of old fashioned socialism.  My Grandfather would have called them “educated damn fools!”  Conservatives are still the majority in this country, we need to become the vocal majority and put a stop to such foolishness.  We need to teach, speak out, share, influence, and express our views at every opportunity.

If you do not consider this to be an important issue I suggest some reading:

  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • The Fountain Head by Ayn Rand
  • Paradise Lost by John Milton

Freedom and Individuality were the building blocks of this country and they are what draw peoples from all over the world to our shores.  If we give them up we loose our identity and frankly our value to humanity.
