Liberty Rising: Republican Anarchists?

smash the state

Anarchists taking over the Republican Party? Has Hell frozen over, Satan himself forced to purchase a humiliating Snuggie to keep warm in his infernal office? This surely can’t be true… or can it?

Better put on your mittens, ye infernal travelers. A recent Huffington Post discussion on the future of the Republican party featured five youthful representatives of the Grand Old Party. Two of the five, a whopping 40%, were self-proclaimed anarchists. Ignoring for a second the oxymoronic nature of anarchists running for government office, this development is still significant.

But what does it mean? Two big things:

One: At the present time, the Republican Party is shaping up to be much more receptive to change than the Democrats. That is most likely a natural result of a survival mechanism, something that the Dems don’t have to worry about having to resort to at this particular moment. Still, change is the future, and he who embraces change embraces the future.

Two: Liberty is rising. It doesn’t take more than a cursory overview of recent events to see that something big is bubbling under the surface. The Republican Party is an institution that has long stood in opposition of street activists, rioters, hippies, social malcontents and various other ne’er-do-wells. When the young face of said party is 40% anarchist, that can only be a powerful sign that their status quo-hating ilk are truly on the rise.

Keep your eyes open for other signs of liberty’s arrival. It’s coming, and you wouldn’t want to miss it.
