"Liberty is never out of bounds or off limits;
it spreads wherever it can capture the
imagination of men."
"Human liberty comprises, first, the inward domain
of consciousness in the most comprehensive sense: liberty of thought and
feeling, scientific, moral or
theological." - Ogden Livingston Mills
"So long as some men wish to do violence to others,
there cannot be complete liberty,
for either the wish to do violence must be restrained, or the victims must be
left to suffer. To give freedom to the strong
to oppress the weak is not the way to secure the greatest possible amount
of freedom. This is the basis of the socialist revolt against the kind of
freedom advocated by laissez-faire
economists." - Bertrand
"The idea of human
liberty is grounded in the belief
that each individual has the inviolate right to live his life according to his
own conception of the "good life," even when others may believe, and believe
strongly, that the road he has chosen is leading him to hell. As long as
he respects the rights of others to follow
other - perhaps more noble - paths,
his destiny is to be left in
his own hands. The freedom philosophy has also argued that the best
chance for individual and social improvement is an
environment in which
persuasion and exemplary example act as the avenues for change." - Richard
is defined as:Freedom from
Freedom to do as one
Freedom or right to frequent or use a place

Freedom from interference,
obligation, restriction, hampering conditions

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
