A Philosophical Cure to a Social Disease by Steven Brodie Tucker

This Earth is wild, it is unforgiving and unequal, it requires every living thing to conform to its laws, or perish. Objectivism, or “Reason”, is the philosophy that tells us that such a planet requires thoughtful logics, objective discernment, and an unfettered acceptance that what is real, really is real. Statism, on the other hand, stands in judgment over Nature Itself, and condemns it. The Egalitarian condemns all of the natural inequities and injustices, all the unfair unmentionables, all the inequalities; and does so with a fervent religious faith that they, as Man, can thwart Nature.

Why do we have so many problems in the world? Why do we suffer? We suffer because Man believes that in His own wisdom, He can remake the world in His own idealogical image of Himself.

The Founding Fathers believed that Man was endowed with inalienable rights and that only God decided the laws of this realm. The Statist resents God, all gods… all pretenders before the thrown that they and their Utopian Idealists claim as their own.

If they want to believe that men were not only created equal, but that they should remain so, then this is the society within which we shall be forced to live; even though such insanity is as significant as a gnat beating its head against the back of an elephant. The plans of governments and the men who seek to organize society never succeed. They only serve to stand as a childish tantrum in the face of Nature, or God if you will.

Listen to the liberals, to the socialists, and the Statists: they are always trying to change nature. For it is a fact that we each, as individuals, are born free. It is a fact that this world requires all living organisms to obey its laws or suffer. It is a fact that a thing is what it is, and that it cannot be itself and something contradictory to itself at the same time; but liberals don’t believe this. They cannot allow themselves to submit to the tyrannies of reality or God. They make reality. They make God. The rest of us must stupidly obey, no matter how disastrous the consequences. If we complain, then WE are the cause of injustice, WE are the cause of inequality, WE are the cause of inequity in the world.

What is it that we want? Those of us who cannot stomach sacrificing our lives and the lives of others to a childish Utopian fantasy; what is it that we reject?


We reject the impossible. We reject the untrue. We reject the idea that we can change Nature, human nature, God, Reality, whatever it is that is. In this we are but humble men.

We are also confident men. Because we are not angry at reality, we are then able to embrace it and work with it, to prosper within it, because we are not trying to pretend that we are bigger than It. We don’t try to redefine the world. We try to understand it. We don’t try to change Man, we try to form societies that take into account the nature of Man. We don’t try to fabricate our language to make things seem different than they are, we accept that what exists exists according to its nature, as WE exist according to ours.

And Liberals are those who disagree. They believe that they can change our nature, that they MUST change our nature. Statism is the process through which they seek to accomplish these goals. The division is that basic and that simple, and it is time people learn to articulate our differences in this manner; because we cannot pretend that free people and Statists are both living in the same reality and merely drawing different conclusions. The Statists draw different conclusions because they reject reality. Our free will and our freedom, will always be the reality they reject first; but it is never the last.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
