Halloween is the time of fear and terror. I strain to consider an institution that has caused more worldwide fear and terror than the US Federal Government. The frightful spirit of Halloween is daily felt by many globally that wince when they see a plane flying overhead afraid it will drop a Hellfire missile or by those who tremble when they behold US troops arrive on their soils in Humvees to spread freedom by intimidation, torture, and terrorization.
If you want to strike true bone chilling fear in a man, simply mention the State is sending agents over to pay him a visit. No Halloween costume compares.
Civilization is built on a foundation of compassion, liberty, free trade, and Capitalism. Only when we holster our guns and sheathe our swords can we begin to truly understand and deeply empathize with our neighbors. Only the individual acts. Only the individual reasons. Only the individual loves! Vacate the State!
