Sermon

FEBRUARY 01, 1958 by MALLORY CROSS JOHNSON

Mrs. Johnson and her husband, formerly of the Foundation staff, continue their study of freedom from Malaga, Spain.

What is war but death and taxes?
How will killing make men free?
Good will never come from evil;
As the seed, so grows the tree.

Taxes sap the life away from
Every source of future wealth,
Thrift and honesty discourage —
How can sickness bring us health?

Nor can bombing draw together
Men in friendship in the way
Voluntary operations
Draw men closer every day.

If you burn to fight for freedom
Know the source wherein it lies:
By respecting every person
Each will help the other rise.

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
