  • Not a persuasive argument. Not every individual is considerate. Rules/ laws inform the selfish of their responsibilities to those around them. Freedom without responsibility = chaos. This guy has confused Collectivism with Cooperation.

  • This guy is an American Hero. He is still Alive even though some of the people commenting speak as if he is no longer with us.

  • Just goes to show you… People are reading the wrong books. They just don't want to know reality, preferring entertainment and fiction. Kinda sad. I fear for the generations to come.

  • The collectivists divide into very different ideologies and philosophies, hence they do NOT believe the same underneath.  Pure individualism is ridiculous since it too has to form a collective in its attempts to rule.  In the individualist UK the collective is hidden since there is no constitution; hence the rulers are unacknowledged, a bunch of feudal-origin capitalistic bankers who run everything from behind and mask themselves by supporting individualism.  Hence individualism is politically a swindle.  "Together we are stronger" is the foundation of Fascism and ONLY from such an objective basis can an organization arise to challenge the individualistic banker-swindle.  If UK, USA and Israel – all preachers of individualism – hurl nuclear weapons, then their populations can be sacrificed entirely for allowing this to happen.  This is why power is vital – and the group is NOT an abstraction but a physical fact, like a punch in the nose that the together group can inflict on the manipulative individualist.  The group rules by the correctness of its ideology irrespective of ANY individualism.

  • Individualism vs collectivism = good vs evil. Capitalism, libertarianism, conservatism of liberty are individualistic. Socialism, nazism, communism, Marxism and racism are collectivistic. I remember, my high school head teacher of my class in China openly promoted collectivism to us. And yes, he was promoting evil.

  • Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?
    No says the man in Moscow
    It belongs to the people
    No says the man in Washington
    It belongs to the poor
    No says the man in the Vatican
    It belongs to god
    – Andrew Ryan

  • whoah! facism is not a variant of collectivism! it's a variant of elitism, the precise opposite of collectivism. The cause of Griffith's confusion on this point is standing right behind him.

  • Until realization that Jews were 5% of the Russian population, yet 70% of the Bolshevik leadership that killed more Christians than German Socialists killed Jews, defense of liberty will not be as effective as it could be.

  • There is no such thing as equality. No one is equal. Everyone is different, someone will always be better. People can't even equal their own performance every day.

  • Anyone with at least a 70 IQ agree they are, I love debating leftist about it, plus telling them to think hard about it, and look at the Democrats, and the fascist regulation's on busyness and the centralization of agriculture, transportation, education, the fed, ect, etc. The Democratic party are economic fascists and now they support antifa, but somehow in the universe the Republicans are evil

  • Unfortunately, and I don't know if he's come to this realization, but our Constitution is also a scam. It is written by Oligarchs, for Oligarchs. At the time, we may see some or even most of the Founders as being relatively innocent (even though they had no legitimacy for what they were doing whatsoever), that they didn't intend for a collectivist rule, they did intend for an Open Oligarchy. What a lot of people do not understand, but I think he was beginning to understand, is that Oligarchs hate Monarchies (I mean hate with the passion of a billion suns) because they do not like anyone in any authority to tell them No, and mean it with deadly force. This is what they need, but they do not have in this nation or any nation which has adopted a "republic," which, by the way, doesn't exist. That is a complete fiction.

    Our Constitution begins with "We the People." Aren't a People a Group? Who are the People? It doesn't refer to me, because I had no hand in writing the Constitution, or even voting on it (most people didn't). Our Founders may have hated Mob rule, but why? Because they were terrified of it, and rightly so. But Oligarchs are terribly fearful of who they deem "the Mob." Meaning the Commoners, the Wealth Producers. Without a King to protect them from the Commoners, and vice versa, you have the enshrinement of a predatory class of people both in and outside of government proper, and we've always had that, since 1688.

    We do have rights, but if you notice, the Bible never really speaks of them. Because they're not all that important. Sure, you have rights, but for the vast majority of human existence, nobody cared about them because we didn't need anyone to spell them out. Because that creates an entitlement mentality, and if I can spell out your entitlements, I can change them or take them away. I can create new rights for other people, and use that as a wedge between you and them. The Bible talks principally of Duties, from which rights truly come from. All rights, even property rights, have duties attached to them. All of them do. The right to speak has at its purpose to spread Truth and Knowledge. The right to bear arms has the purpose of not only self-defence and sustenance, but to protect the nation and promote the tranquility of society. Among other things.

    What this means is that Error does not have rights. You do not have the right to debauch yourself. What this means is that the State does not have an obligation to protect the Errors you spread or the debauchery you inflict on yourself, nor does it have an obligation to prevent others from correcting you. Individuals do matter, but not to the extent that their proclivities ought to be protected in such a way even if they are deleterious to society at large, and yes, societies do exist. There are limits to your rights, and they are bound by your responsibilities to God, and your fellow man.

  • Our current technological ability to harness infinitely regenerating energy resources renders any and all scarcity based money notions obsolete… Socially accepting any and All forms of money as a way to determine our net worth as people in today's world is totally insane and the root cause of most every one of our problems.

  • Counter question – How many Red Indian Individuals can you see today? They would have survived if they had better organised themselves against collective attack. Collectivism is not the villain, individualism surely is, as it isolates the individual enough for a race to be easy prey for the organised collective.

  • It doesn't take a brilliant mind to know what he speaks of, it just takes common sense and reason,well it also helps to be raised under a authoritarian like house hold,as I would call it, my dad always said I will understand one day.

  • *FIRST OF ALL, I AM NOT BLACK (B-LACK). ROOT RESEARCH 1849 WEBSTER DICTIONARY DEFINES BLACK AS LACKING COLOR, BLANK, PALENESS, ETC. DESCRIBES RACIST REDDISH-PINK-PALESKIN FACE EUROPEANS WHO ARE THE TRUE ALIENS-FOREIGNERS-INVADERS OF THIS LAND CALLED AMERICA (iDENTITY THEFT-ROBBERY).
    *THIS SAME DICTIONARY+ DESCRIBES AMERICANS AS NEGRO "ABORIGINAL COPPER COLORED" NATIVE AMERICANS WHO WERE HERE ON THIS LAND "BEFORE" EUROPEAN ROMAN CATHOLIC POPE "GODFATHER" CHRISTIAN "AGENTS" COLUMBUS AND CORTES INVADED OUR ANSESTREE MOTHERLAND AMERiKA IN 1492———2020=530 YEARS GENERATIONAL MEMORIES KNOWN.
    *SECOND OF ALL, I AM NOT FROM AFRICA. NOR AM I AN AFRICAN AMERICAN. THERE ARE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF AUTHORITATIVE RECORDED IMAGES AND DOCUMENTS PROVING A THOUSAND TIMES BEYOND ANY DOUBTS THAT OVER 100 MILLION NEGRO ABORIGINAL COPPER COLORED NATIVE AMERIKAANS WERE HERE BEFORE AND IN 1492.
    *THIRDLY OF ALL, EVERY LAND SO CALLED CONTINENTS HAVE-HAD "DARKSKIN ABORIGINAL NATIONS" BORN OF THAT LAND EARTH THAT EXISTED BEFORE ANY EUROPEAN REDDISH PINK PALESKIN FACE FOREIGNERS-ALIEN-INVADERS.
    *THE EUROPEAN MANIFEST DESTINY IN AMERICA MUST BE THE "PSYCHE ERASING" AND MASSIVE HIDING HISTORICAL RECORDS (PAPER-GENOCIDE iD CENSUS RECLASSIFICATION: BLACKS, AFRICAN AMERICAN, ETC.) OF THE "NEGRO COLORED" BEING THE NEGRO ABORIGINAL COPPER COLORED NATIVE AMERIKAAN RIGHT LANDOWNERS. THIS IS THE "ROOT OF THE DEVILTREE" SUB-PLANTED ON ALL EARTH ABORIGINALANDS.
    *LAST THOUGHTS. EITHER YOU DO "FURTHERESEARCH" …UPDATING YOUR NEGRO ABORIGINAL COPPER COLORED NATIVE AMERIKAANaTIONS' ANSESTREE MEMORIES THAT ARE KNOWN AND ACCESSIBLE TODAY, OR YOUR INTERNET FORMAT PLATFORM (VisionLiberty) BECOMES PART OF THE PROBLEM AS A KNOWINGLY PROPAGATING FALSE ID CONCEPTS THAT DISEMPOWERS AND DISCONNECTS THE NEGRO ABORIGINAL COPPER COLORED NATIVE AMERIKAANaTIONS FROM THEiRiGHT MOTHERLANDeeD iNHERiTANCE EARTH RESOURCES.
    *YOUR NEXT MUVEMiNDTS WILL iDENTIFY WHO YOU REALLY ARE…

  • Yah-yah! And the US with its perfect Constitution is in such a deep shit now. and the USSR, KGB are gone. So what are the errors in this case? Think about it blockhead!
