The Voluntaryist comic book superheroes are back and they’re continuing to set the standard of what it really means to be a superhero; it means fighting against everyone who seeks to dominate others through coercion, intimidation and fraud.
If today you embrace the Non-Aggression Principle of the Modern American Libertarian Movement that includes the right to use defensive force against aggressors but grew up on every kind, color, shape and capability of yesterday’s comic book superheroes be very thankful for The Voluntaryists.
Be thankful because now with the Voluntaryists you have legitimate, meaningful, teachable adventures to hand down to your own children. Yesterday’s Superheroes fought invaders from the criminal underworld, dictators and tyrants and despots from other lands, menacing alien creatures from outer space, but they almost never fought back against the worst invaders of all; the ones from within our own walls.
How can any establishment superhero from the past fight for The American Way when The American Way has been hijacked by a corrupt gang of power-grasping, wealth-stealing, ego-feeding politicians, corporatists and banksters?
Whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange performed a great service to all the decent people of the world; they told everyone that the American Powercrats were lying to us. Lying about big, evil, violent, treacherous, murderous events. So of course the wielders of power branded these truth-tellers as traitors. But traitors to whom? To the Powercrats, of course.
Sadly thousands who cling to the myth that government is their savior, their protector, their surrogate Mommies and Daddies branded them as traitors too. But not libertarians. Not Voluntaryists. Not honest, decent, peaceful individuals who understand that violence and cruelty is always wrong no matter who perpetrates it, including their government surrogate Mommies and Daddies.
So after the comic book Voluntaryist Superheroes came to the rescue of Truth-Teller Edward Snowden in Voluntaryists Versus the NSA they’ve returned to save Truth-Teller Julian Assange in Part 2.
As Yesterday’s singers admonished us all to “Teach your children well” so today’s Voluntaryists – the superhero comic book ones and the nonviolent real ones and all of the Non-Aggression Principle ones – should teach their own children well. And if that doesn’t work for everyone listen to the rest of the lyrics in that song and then “Teach your parents well.” And when that is done join all of us who want to criminalize everyone’s coercion, intimidation and fraud and help us “Teach the world well.”
You can start by doing the little things that help the bigger things that help the even bigger things, like supporting the crowdfunding effort for “Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists vs. the NSA 2” on the Indiegog web page.
After all, what sort of monster teaches their children not to hit, not to bully and not to lie and then punishes them when they tell the truth? Today that monster is known as “government.”
