Each and every one of us are a one-of-a-kind....No duplicates....No copies.
Even if a perfect physical copy could be created of you, that new person would still occupy a different place in the universe. It would observe, and interpret what it observes in its own unique way.
So, no matter how you slice it, no two humans think the exact same sequence of thoughts.
It's our individual thinking that makes us truly unique.
If you've been paying attention to the news (and human history) you'll notice that there are a lot people who have a problem with this.
They don't like that other people form their own opinions. They don't like that other people make different choices than what they themselves would make.
In their minds, everyone should think exactly the same way. And of course, they're the ones who are to decide what that way should be.
If they say X is "offensive," then you are to think that X is offensive.
Their goal is uniformity in thought.
Immediately, these authoritarian individuals experience a clash with reality. They quickly find out that the world is not structured to their pleasing. And so, they need to be whisked away into "safe spaces," and protected from reality.
The last refuge of those who seek uniformity in thought is violence; either on their own, or perpetrated by the government on their behalf.
But violence doesn't change human nature, no matter how much of it they're able to wield.
We're still different and unique. We still observe and interpret the world in our own individual way. The only thing that's changed is now there are a bunch of people trying to beat up on others.
The whole thing is a futile endeavor.
Just as Economic Marxism was an impossible utopia, so is Cultural Marxism.
Those who seek uniformity in thought are just spinning their wheels and creating a ton of unnecessary heartache while doing so.
Real unity (not uniformity, but unity) entails a recognition of everyone's individuality.
The ideas of Liberty coincide with this recognition.
Liberty means no one is allowed to use aggressive force against another. It means you can't get government to use force on your behalf either.
Liberty means that you live your life as your individual thinking decides it should be lived, and you let others do exactly the same thing. They don't need your permission, and you don't need theirs. You're going to make choices that they may not like, and they're going to do the same.
As long as no aggressive force or fraud is committed, it means live and let live.
Doesn't that seem more reasonable considering our uniqueness?
Doesn't that sound like a better idea than a forced uniformity that can never be achieved?
All Empires have collaborators and accomplices. Creditors, vassals, and partners will play ball with the Empire if they see it in their interest to do so. But once the Empire over-stretches militarily or financially (or both) the search for the exit door begins. Ron Paul discusses the race to get away from the dollar on today’s Liberty Report!

The U.S. and Russian governments have enough weapons to destroy everyone many times over.
With that being the inescapable fact, it makes no sense for any type of provocations. President Trump rallied the country behind the idea of getting along with Russia. Despite the military-industrial-complex's resistance, it's a promise that president really needs to keep.
Ron Paul discusses below:
Candidate Trump was skeptical over claims of a Russian invasion of Ukraine and was confident he could work it out without escalation of tension. Just yesterday, however, he did something that even Obama did not do: approved some US weapons sales to Ukraine. Will neocons be satisfied? Or will they push for more?

U.S. dollar hegemony is coming to an end, and the expanding interest in cryptocurrencies is a symptom of it.
The bubbles created in cryptocurrencies (as well as the stock and bond markets) are also products of The Fed's reckless "QE" programs.
Ron Paul discusses on CNBC's Futures Now.
Ron's segment begins at the 2 min mark:
US National Security Advisor HR McMaster has warned that the US is ready to "force" the denuclearization of North Korea. Of course that means a US military strike. But how enthusiastic is South Korea about being in the crosshairs after a US strike?
A recent Wall Street Journal article has suggested that President Trump is planning to re-purpose US troops in Syria toward confronting Iran. If true, he would be veering far from any thread of legality or claim of self-defense. Will Nikki and her neocon coterie finally get their way?
Secretary of State Tillerson said we should talk to North Korea, then the White House said it's a waste of time, then Tillerson agreed. What's going on?

Americans and the U.S. federal government have been living way beyond their means for decades. The false belief that "debt doesn't matter" was enabled and made possible by the existence of The Federal Reserve.
Ron Paul has warned (throughout those very same decades) that this unnatural and forced condition could not, and would not, last.
Well, with each passing day, we see foreign nations taking concrete steps away from dollar dependency. They're no longer finding it in their interest to keep the Empire of Debt alive.
Please enjoy this classic (and prescient) floor speech that Ron Paul gave in 2006:
The "European Defense Initiative" was launched after the US-backed coup in Ukraine to counter Russian "aggression" in the region. Its budget has quintupled to nearly $5 billion next year. Hundreds of millions will be spent to rebuild military bases in eastern Europe. What happened to making the Europeans pay for their own defense?
