Cycle of Freedom

You may have heard about the cycle of freedom. Frases Tytler said that a democracy can’t exist as a permanent form of government. What eventually happens is people discover they can vote for their own largess from the treasury. We then vote in people that give us more and the loose fiscal policy leads to collapse and a dictatorship. The cycle goes from bondage, to spiritual faith, then to great courage, liberty and abundance, then to selfishness, complacency, apathy, dependence and then bondage. Tytler believed a democracy could not last longer than 200 years (we have that beaten by 31 years). Where do you think we are in the cycle? Our forefathers fought so that they could have freedom. We seem too willing to give up our freedom to be taken care of. I found a quote from a slave owner justifying slavery.
“I have also looked into the working conditions of free laborers in the North. You will not be surprised when I say that our Negroes live better than most factory workers. Does anyone lookout for the poor worker whose arm is permanently damaged? No. Does anyone see that workers are properly fed and housed?”
Many of slave owners went so far as to advocate for universal slavery. They believed that the “superior” slave owners would provide a better organized system where everyone would have jobs, be provided food, clothing, housing and cared for if they were sick or infirm. Is this much different than socialism? This has been replicated in the USSR, China, and Cuba. Europe has reached dependence in the Cycle of Freedom and I believe we are not far behind. It’s time to break the cycle.
