True Freedom is the Ability to be Racist, Sexist, and a Bigot


True freedom is the individual’s ability to act freely without infringing on the natural negative rights on another human being. Natural negative rights are the rights to not be robbed, assaulted, raped, or murdered. Fundamentally these negative rights are all derived from self ownership and property rights. Inherent in this is the right to associate or dissociate from whomever one wishes. We discriminate all the time when we choose who to befriend, who to date, who to marry, which businesses to patronize etc. Inherent in all these decisions is the concept of opportunity costs, which are those options that were not chosen because one decision was made. Such a decision could be made on the basis of whatever justification the person had in mind.

The fundamental ideas of Racism, Sexism, or Bigotry are based off of everyone’s right to associate or dissociate from whomever for whatever reason. There is no inherent immorality in the idea of dissociation or exclusion. Just as this right is inherent in the individual, it is inherent in the business that individual manages. Every good or service is produced by the labor of an individual. No one is entitled to the labor of another for that would constitute the very quintessence of slavery.

Voluntaryism is a descriptive philosophy rather than a prescriptive philosophy. It only describes the very basic skeletal structure of how not to act. It does not describe what is wisdom, how to gain knowledge, or how to make new friends. For this reason, although one may be a bigot and simultaneously be a Voluntaryist it is not advisable. One would rapidly encounter other incensed individuals around him that would use their right to peacefully dissociate through economic ostracism and boycotting. By these methods the Free Market will organically weed out and extirpate undesirable behavior. Humanity is on a one way relentless march of ethical and moral progress.  Statism is a decrepit and collapsing dinosaur that is relic of our barbaric past. It is time to slough it off, never to return.

Tomasz Kaye: Voluntaryist and Creator of George Ought to Help

Please enjoy my recent conversation with Tomasz Kaye. Herein we discussed how he became a Voluntaryist, the State is the electrically charged barbed wire of our enclosure, creative and imaginative people don’t join “government”, rule by the stupid, I didn’t sign the NAP, people are evil so we need “government” made up of people, George Ought to Help, welfare State, freedom is the ability to be discriminatory, racism is a highly charged word, discriminating relationships, Edgar the Exploiter, Minimum Wage Economics, pieces of paper cannot violate economic law, incessant competition, The Indispensable Janitor Fallacy, decentralization is messy, human biology is Anarchy, peaceful parenting, You Can Always Leave, social contract, moral nihilism, contrarian approach and much more!


It’s amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we’re compassionate we’ll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint.
