Gun Control? Read - Power Kills - Professor Emeritus Rummel University of Hawaii - What Dictators Do

Freedom,
Democracy, Peace;
Power,
Democide, and War

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
----Lord Acton

Power kills; absolute power kills absolutely.
----This Web Site


Introduction

It is true that democratic freedom is an engine of national and individual wealth and prosperity. Hardly known, however, is that freedom also saves millions of lives from famine, disease, war, collective violence, and democide (genocide and mass murder). That is, the more freedom, the greater the human security and the less the violence. Conversely, the more power governments have, the more human insecurity and violence. In short: to our realization that power impoverishes we must also add that power kills.

Through theoretical analysis, historical case studies, empirical data, and quantitative analyses, this web site shows that:


Freedom is a basic human right recognized by the United Nations and international treaties, and is the heart of social justice.

Freedom is an engine of economic and human development, and scientific and technological advancement.

Freedom ameliorates the problem of mass poverty.

Free people do not suffer from and never have had famines, and by theory, should not. Freedom is therefore a solution to hunger and famine.

Free people have the least internal violence, turmoil, and political instability.

Free people have virtually no government genocide and mass murder, and for good theoretical reasons. Freedom is therefore a solution to genocide and mass murder; the only practical means of making sure that "Never again"

Free people do not make war on each other, and the greater the freedom within two nations, the less violence between them.

Freedom is a method of nonviolence--the most peaceful nations are those whose people are free.

The purpose of this web site, then, is to make as widely available as possible the theories, work, results, and data that empirically and historically, quantitatively and qualitatively, support these conclusions about freedom. This is to invite their use, replication, and critical evaluation, and thereby to advance our knowledge of and confidence in freedom--in liberal democracy. It is to foster freedom.

Pray tell, my brother,
Why do dictators kill
and make war?
Is it for glory; for things,
for beliefs, for hatred,
for power?
Yes, but more,
because they can.

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

Strain your brain a little GLP and read history instead of throwing the F word, the S word, and groveling before inarticulate buffoonery. Horse feathers to the ignorant who wish to remain as such.

The strongest words from a peer reviewed academic paper demonstrate governments turning evil and destroying people. All it takes is their precious "gun control." Lord of the Rings pun intended.

The sheer numbers show that the "libtards," who want their way make people helpless and dependent upon an absent government as well. The recent CT strategy took place where no one was able to defend themselves. Whether on a small scale or a larger scale, that's the argument. Add things together.

These are the strongest words to demonstrate what happens when governments turn evil and destroy people after obtaining their precious "gun control." Lord of the Rings pun intended.

I might as well save you the trouble.

Liberals are communists that don't even realize that they are communists. Liberals are just like the serfs in the movie "Braveheart". The ones jeering and throwing the rotten vegetables at William Wallace, just before he had his head lopped off.

Do not expect a liberal to care about facts, reason, or logic. It literally makes their skin crawl. All they will do, is resort to calling you names, when they cannot hold up against common sense and truth. The truth is simply not on their side, and lies are much harder to defend.

If you want to see the worlds largest concentrations of liberals, just go to ANY prison.

That alone, should answer a lot of questions about their mentality.
