The Greenest Organization On Planet Earth 

A Tirade Against Freedom
January 2015

Life is not about freedom. The liberals got it all wrong. The lust for freedom produces debt and other social ills. Debt is the antithesis of freedom. The intrinsic paradox of the liberal agenda has to be understood if one is to understand freedom and the problems the liberal free market has created.

Libertarianism is a philosophy about freedom but Libertarians do not oppose debt, they are not antithetical to debt, Libertarians do not fear debt and so do not understand it and do not mitigate the problems it creates. Liberals see Socialism as a solution but it is a source of social costs and debt. Libertarians tend to evaluate things according to their personal objectives and needs. Liberals are Ego Centered. The means to achieve goals are other human beings and the resources of the planet. People are not to be sacrificed to any end no matter how seemingly grand or personally rewarding.

The Libertarian conception of freedom is flawed. The Free Market, the Libertarian model of freedom, is closed to those without the financial means to access the market. Libertarian styled freedom extends to those with capital and is decidedly missing for those without it. The poor are a debt created by the wealthy a debt they have disavowed. This is the immorality of the Libertarian lifestyle and a symptom of the inconsistency that flows through liberalism. Liberals promote freedom but require the interference of governments to achieve it and Socialist policies to maintain it. The Liberal Paradox is the outcome when freedom is made a purpose and the purpose overshadows those who are meant to be free.

Those who fully understand freedom abhor debt and fight it tooth and nail. Debt is a revolution maker. Debt is a line in the sand the point at which retreat is no longer an option.

Economic rational exchanges are perfectly liquid in that they carry no debt. Debt cannot be carried in an economic rational exchange; debt and rational exchanges are immiscible because they will not mix. Eliminating social costs not only creates rational exchanges it spontaneously generates specialization. Specialization is the single factor behind all increases in productivity. Therefore the promotion of specialization and the absolute rejection of debt in all its forms are ultimately responsible for all wealth generation. The more debt is tolerated the less wealth generated because debt drives out rational exchanges.

Some form of debt is always required to enforce control. Putting ends before the integrity of the ecology of earth always creates debt. Ecological destruction occurs every time liberals adopt a socialist platform for Socialism of necessity generates debt. Socialism creates dependency and authoritarianism because the subject depends on something the authority holder has. Dependency is a form of debt. The slave supposedly owes the master obedience; the worker owes the employer his job. Both exist to fulfill a purpose that is not part of human nature and is ultimately antithetical to nature itself.

No one questions if natural processes can be described by laws stated mathematically. It seems reasonable that it should be so. Yet, there seems to be a common misconception that because humans possess choice and because we have the power of free will we can choose whatever course of action we wish as if life choices were of no more significant than selecting a breakfast cereal. Is this thinking rational?

If choices matter and it is the position of this essay that they do then there are consequences and of necessity some choices are better than others. Some choices are right because they produce good results and others are wrong because they leave debt behind. All environmental damage is a debt owed the planet and humanity in general.

We have, in this life, but two choices. This is not negotiable. The options are contradictory and incompatible. The paths cannot be reconciled or made to co-exist, not in reality, not in our conscience or consciousness nor in theory or in our way of living. At each step in our life we are confronted with the inescapable fact we must choose one way or the other; one path or the other. We either pay the costs we create or we leave debts behind us. One path or choice is rational and the other less so. 

The two choices we have create two philosophies: Rationalism and Liberalism. The focus of these two ways of thinking and understanding and managing are labelled the rational way and the liberal way. The world has always sought for the line in the sand, the division between right and wrong, good and evil, truth and injustice this line is based on private property rights and reflects the distinction between human rights and legal rights.

Human rights are founded on and express our property rights.

Property Rights creates an objective metric missing from the liberal’s accent on freedom. Freedom is essentially indefinable, un-quantifiable and infinitely regressive and reflects the whims of those in power.

There are many different theories and strategies for managing the workplace, none have solved all the issues because liberals do not actually understand or respect private property. All theorists have been to varying degrees disciples of the liberal conception of freedom and their ideas betray this enslavement to a meaningless concept as expressed by liberals. Property Rights is more concerned with issues such as accountability and sustainability. These are economically definable concepts. This differing priorities is reflected in the different ways conservatives and liberals think about private property.

Owning property does not give people rights over others it makes people accountable for its use. Being responsible is what is also referred to as Dominion. Having Dominion over the world means earth is ours collectively and individually human beings are accountable for its use. We ought to have Dominion over our communities because communities are an expression of our point of accountability. We ought to be accountable for the state of our communities but the way earth is managed does not make this possible. This is the legacy of liberal thinking.

Liberals are advocates of freedom but their ideology sees freedom as associated directly with the accumulation of assets as if freedom was contained in property. Private Enterprise is a liberal theory as to how those with private property ought to be free to exploit what they have as they see fit while costs are simply an inconvenience to be shed as the opportunity arises.

The liberal conception of freedom is flawed, a point that has been developed elsewhere primarily in Human Rights - Legal Rights  available on kindle.

Freedom expressed in private property hinders the ability of other stakeholders to impact what you are doing. Their freedom over property others own impacts your ability to exercise your free will. This kind of freedom is both self-limiting and creates conflicts. Libertarianism promotes the idea (ideal) of the moral island and moral relativism a condition in which differences are settled by a recourse to power and war.

Libertarianism sees the individual as a self-sufficient island that acts as a sovereign entity unto him or her self. Right and wrong are relative concepts that adhere to the individual moral islands.

Conservatives cannot subscribe to this way of thinking. We live in and our humanity is expressed through the ecology of earth and the specific expression of this in community and the specific and local way a community cares for the planet. Environmentalism demands dominionism and conservativism not anarchy and most certainly not moral relativism. Green Management is a movement to put the focus of managers on the integrity of earth’s ecology not the profitability of an enterprise especially when this is achieved at the expense of planet earth.
