As good a commercial for the Old Right ....., 6 November 2007
Author: toolkien from next to waldo I've seen.

It seems that many of the commentators lean left, but have some interesting things to say about Goldwater. They seem to have a high regard for his rejection of the cultural movements the Republican Party moved toward in the last 50 years. I agree. But as a libertarian/old rightist, I can only wish that they would follow through the logic and support Goldwater's anti-liberal policies of government transfer by force. There is a whole OTHER aspect as to how the government endeavors to control culture and that is through forced transfers. Liberty cannot exist if people are threatened with force, and have it used against them, that is not in a defensive posture. To dictate that one person MUST assist another without ANY consideration of facts and circumstances cannot be anything other than an abridgment of cultural paradigms.

Simply put, Goldwater was very consistent on the role government played in people's lives, especially the Federal Government. He simply wanted people out of other people's lives, socially AND financially. One without the other is nothing at all. So I implore those who have watched this program (or haven't but will) to consider that the State is Force, that is ALL that it is, and if we are to have one, we should be VERY careful what it is used for and rely that through a LIBERATED culture, socially AND financially, will people find maximum freedom to live their lives free of coercion of ANY kind.
