Kim Jong Un loves freedom

In True nature of the State on May 12, 2017 at 9:14 pm


He does for himself but not his people. 

“Even despots accept the excellence of liberty. The simple truth is that they wish to keep it for themselves and promote the idea that no one else is at all worthy of it. Thus, our opinion of liberty does not reveal our differences but the relative value which we place on our fellow man. We can state with conviction, therefore, that a man’s support for absolute government is in direct proportion to the contempt he feels for his country. Alex de Tocqueville 

Kim Jong Un is not alone in being despotic. The entire political class of all nations believe that they should keep liberty to themselves while they dictate how everyone else should live.  

The ruling elite of North Korea is reported to spend around $600 million dollars a year on luxury goods while their citizens suffer. In the United Stares six of the ten richest counties are located around Washington DC. How is this any different? 

The idea that drives the political class is the belief that they are superior and deserve unlimited liberty and that everyone doesn’t because they are not worthy of it. When politicians talk they are always trying to increase their choices in life why limited those of others. 

Liberty simply means freedom to choose how to live your life. Every law passed, every tax created, every zoning regulation is a reminder of the despotic philosophy of the ruling class. They believe they are worthy of freedom but you are not. 

When politicians are talking about killing despots around the world just remember that they share the same despotic philosophy with the ones they say are the embodiment of evil. They just haven’t been able to insitiute total government in their own country due to practical issues but they spend their energies working towards that goal.
