Beck: To Act Like Humans

From Billy Beck:

"Human ingenuity, not wind, not sun, is the only truly renewable resource. Without it, nothing in nature would be transformed to further human life. Your car, your clothes, your food -- none of these things are naturally occurring. If all we can do is take what we get, then we are but hunter-gatherers without tools or any remnants of cognition to help us along. But because humans are rational animals, we can identify the materials in our environment and mold them to suit us.

Be it stones or soft metals or iron or oil or electricity or fusion -- or the sun -- the human mind is the inexhaustible resource that makes all others possible. It is time for the government to recognize this alternative energy source, and to unleash it fully upon the world by getting the hell out of our way."
Titanic Deck Chairs brings to clarity the function of humans in the world. It is our job to bring our only tool of survival -- our minds -- to bear on everything else that we find in the world, in order to adapt it all as values for the existence and advancement of human life. All government action prevents this, and to that degree it positively inhibits human survival and flourishing.

Why are you letting government kill you?

Or, "How long have you been beating your wife?". Anybody wants to talk about it, give me a buzz.
