For those of us who love liberty and freedom, who believe that each person owns himself, who hold the idea that a person can do whatever he wishes with his life and property as long as he does not infringe on the rights of another person or his property, we find ourselves beset on all sides by a State that is oppressive of our rights and the most violent and consistent aggressor against life and property.

The State, media, and government run schools are all working to teach our children a near blind obedience to government and its agents.

In an effort to combat all the State propaganda and ensure my children receive a more enlightened education, I began recording short podcast type lessons for them. The lessons are all designed to be about 5 minutes long and to teach the ideas of liberty in a language they can understand.

I'm posting these lessons online so that others who might find them useful can share them with their own children.

Why do politicians put their own names on plaques?

When politicians put there own names on plaques like this, it demonstrates the hubris(extreme arrogance) of the State.

Politicians cast a vote to use force to extract(steal) wealth from property owners. These property owners have committed no fault except purchasing property within the geographical boundaries that these politicians claim to rule over(such as their city or county). The politicians then use the threat of violence to collect the money to build the park from these unfortunate property owners. If the property owner refuses to bow to the edict(command) of the politician, the politicians send the thug enforcers they call Sheriffs to forcibly remove the property owner from his home. The these mafioso(gang)-like enforcers called sheriffs auction the property off to collect the extortion money(money collect by threatening violence against a person) from the property owner. 
Of course, this threat of violence is understood by all the property owners, and since the mafia(gang)-like organization of politicians has many guns and obedient thug enforcers, most property owners willingly, if grudgingly, pay these extortion demands called taxes to avoid the violence. 
And when it’s all done, the politicians have the audacity(courage)

to put their own names in the plaque, as if their contribution to building the park was anything more than the threat of violence against their friends, family, and neighbors.
