It gives me great pleasure to announce that Tim Wikiriwhi is joining me as co-blogger!
I first met Tim at the 2006 Libertarianz Party Conference. His speech to the conference attendees was unforgettably, pulpit-poundingly passionate! Just like the man himself. A Christian libertarian cat set among the Objectivist pigeons!
Here is how Peter Cresswell live-blogged it.
Tim Wikiriwhi – Keeping the faith
Tim Wikiriwhi, the christian libertarian. T-shirt reads: “Stand fast in the liberty of Christ.” Christ!
This isn’t a game. This is real. People’s lives are being destroyed, but those people will do so little to help remove the shackles that help imprison them. People’s lives are being destroyed, but so many libertarians themselves who KNOW what’s wrong will do so little to do what they know is necessary.
Organising libertarians is still like herding cats. Why? Why so many ‘useless inert nothings’?
Don’t be pessimists; be optimists. Take it seriously. LIVE YOUR CONVICTIONS.
There is no reason and passion dichotomy: if you’re not passionate, then there’s something wrong with your reason.
Why quit? Why quit when the competition is morally bankrupt to their core, and totally absurd. To quit in the face of such small adversaries is cowardice. We have reason and virtue on our side.
Give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Don’t be a quitter. If you are, and you KNOW what the fight is about, you’re shirking what you know needs to be done. God said, the lukewarm will be spewed from my mouth. Don’t be lukewarm.
The socialists aren’t beating us, too many are doing it themselves.
While hundreds of libertarians sit on their arses, the forces of evil are at work. Rust never sleeps. What do you need to wake up?
Being an individualist is no excuse for excluding yourself from activism. An individualist wants to see his values in the world; a christian libertarian who KNOWS that libertarianism can save the poor, the weak and the needy MUST do what he can to make those values real.
Not to attack the enemy is to give them the advantage. Why, when the enemies of civilisation will do everything — even blow themselves up! — will so many libertarians not even support their local Libz candidate?
Libz offers the only real choice between freedom and slavery. Your motivation for activism should be love: love for your fellow man. Individualism need not be anti-altruism.
God bless the Libertarianz.
