The UNR Students for Liberty successfully combated enemies of liberty through education and throwing darts at the faces of:
John Maynard Keynes who created Keynesian economic policies that use a fundamentally collectivist approach of describing the economy as a whole. Unfortunately, no matter the presumptively utilitarian intentions, this type of economic policy requires centralized planning which leads to totalitarian abuses and the degradation of liberty.
Woodrow Wilson who, among many things, signed the Federal Reserve Act into law, essentially removing the fiscal responsibility of the federal government and currently responsible for the country being in nearly 10 trillion dollars of debt. Although regretful after his decision, it does not excuse allowing the federal government to grow exponentially through a secret tax of inflation. After the signing the bill into law, he was noted in saying:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world – no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
Plato‘s philosophy stresses shared property, a common good of the people provided through government, shared and equal wealth, public education, and emphasis on government parenting to be the proper way of operating a perfect society. When compared to similar ideas, communism, which is “a theory advocating elimination of private property b: a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed” is what Platonic philosophy strikingly resembles.
With the incentive of winning an Airsoft gun, along with the disbursement of the Liberty Report and FIRE’s books, the Students for Liberty successfully had a luau with the enemies of liberty.
