Description

For a principled libertarian, living in a world dominated by collectivism can be a daunting task. For John Hunt and his readers, fiction offers solace and a platform for spreading rugged individualism.

Coauthor with Doug Casey of the successful High Ground novels, Hunt is a man whose moral compass led him to career change. A physician and former tenured university professor, he shares his disillusionment with both academia and medical practice.

Hunt argues that US healthcare is imploding and that universities are no longer the truth-seeking institutions they used to be.

  • I don’t want to steal ErickR’s thunder because he started the post “Laguage of Liberty”. I started this thread because I also don’t want to sidetrack his thread by focusing on the procedure of language instead of his particular-subject-matter. That said the evidence shows that Libertarians have trouble coordinating efforts for the promotion of Libretarianism. This is a given when one considers that many Libertarians are, by nature, Independant-thinkers. Coordinating independent-thinkers is like trying to herd cats, however even independent-thinkers manage to get together on some things. Take the math problem: 3+3= 6. Are there any Libritarians who don’t “agree” that 3+3= 6? If no one speaks up I would presume that it is because Libritarians “agree” that a standard-set of rules is necessary if one wants to get a true, correct and certain-answer for the math-problem each time one does the same procedure for the same math-problem. I am also going to presume that Libretarians want their pay check calculated with math which is true, correct and certain. Now, for the hard part: Why is it that people accept “rules” for the correct operations of math, but reject rules for the corrct-construction of a sentnece? THIS IS A DO IT YOURSELF TOOL KIT. You have to figure it out for yourself. Facts: Do you have the same piece of evidence as a fact if you modify that evidence? If you went to a crime-scene and pulled a knife out of a victim with your bare hand, have you “modified” the murder-weapon with your finger prints? If you give a “red” barn a coat of white paint is it still a “red” barn? If you charge someone with gross-neglence is it the same as neglence? If you use a pronoun such as he she in place of the actual-name of a witness or victim how does anyone know who you are talking about? When you can answer these questions correctly you will have the beginning of a tool kit for the correct-construction of a sentence.

  • The words we use reflects and affects the way we see the world. The number one collectivist tool is the language of generalization. Try to eliminate “groups” from your language and watch how your perspective changes. For example, I try not to refer to a country as a person. The “USA” cannot act, only the people with power can. So saying the US did this or that is an illusion. But this language is used by so many that the illusion is considered real. Accepting this falsehood leads to all kinds of propaganda and manipulation. How many ways can we alter our language to better reflect the true view that collective generalizations are not realities, but just conceptual aggregates?

  • Hi and Happy New Year! I’m doing another liberty-themed anthology, this one (mainly) of flash fiction. All authors are welcome, whether you identify even remotely libertarian or are just writing a liberty-themed story. I would love to have you on board with this. Will you join me? Why am I doing this? Because I want to gain a greater collective readership for libertarian fiction. We’ve done lots of work reaching people with logical arguments for liberty. It’s time to inject more emotional arguments for liberty into the conversation. So you in or what? 🙂 Here are the details: Submit as many stories as you like, up to 5,000 words each but ideally around 1,000 words. These need to be complete stories with a beginning, middle and end, in any genre. The deadline for your completed story/ies is Monday, March 30, 2016, so you have plenty of time. But you might as well get on board with this marketing opportunity right now! You need to commit to helping me market the final anthology to the best of your abilities. Anyone can submit, whether you are published before or not. Get the full story here: http://georgedonnelly.com/seeking-short-fiction/ Thanks and I look forward to reading your stories! P.S. If you know anyone else who might be interested in this, please share it with them. TIA! P.P.S Here’s the last one we did, in case you weren’t aware of it: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QU9FU78/
