Imagine, by Eric Peters, not John Lennon

This is an idealistic article, and it’s a lot better than John Lennon’s drippy anthem to collectivism of the same name. From Eric Peters, on a guest post at theburningplatform.com:

Imagine if you actually owned your car once you paid the seller for it in full.imagine lead

Did not have to put little stickers and metal plates on it owned by other people (the people who – collectively – are the reality of this construct styled “government”) who have empowered themselves to simply take “your” car in the event you decline to put their little stickers and metal plates on “your” car.

Imagine being able to just go wherever you wanted to go, whenever you felt like going – without having to obtain permission or explain yourself to random armed strangers. Without having to carry “ID.”

Cattle are fenced in and have ear tags.

Most people seem unable to draw a parallel.

Imagine your adulthood being respected. That it’s up to you to eat a balanced diet – or wear a seat belt.

How about being free to buy a car without air bags? Or a back-up camera? Or a tire pressure monitoring system? It’s probably a good idea to have a fire extinguisher in the house. But no one forces you to have one – much less have three in every room in the house, for “safety.”

Why don’t we have the same right to decide for ourselves when it comes to our cars?

Imagine riding around in the bed of a pick-up truck, wind in your hair, on a warm summer afternoon. Or the same on a motorcycle – without a helmet, if you wanted.non aggression pic

Imagine, in other words, being free to do as you liked – rather than being told what to do by others, or else.
