The Cult of the Omnipotent State

New webpage added today:

The Cult of the Omnipotent State

The basic political philosophy of the Libertarian Party is stated in its Statement of Principles:

We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual.

This is a very important statement.

  • The Declaration of Independence says our rights come from God. The modern State now claims to be the giver and protector of our rights.
  • America used to be a nation "Under God." The modern State now claims it is God.
  • Americans used to say, "In God We Trust." In practice, Americans now trust the State rather than God to provide salvation and national security.
  • In short, belief in the State has become an idolatrous cult.
Details have already been posted on this blog:
