We recently learned that the so called “elites” belief the individual is too free. It is these “elites” who were meeting in Davos at the World Economic Forum who heard from one of those who belief that government has too much power. This has been the difference between individualists and collectivists; where does power reside. The individualist believes that power resides with the people and the collectivist believes that power resides with the government. The individualist believes that rights and liberties come from God and the role of government is to protect those rights and liberties. The collectivist believes that the government must control rights and liberties by determining what rights and liberties the people can have.
It was in 1776 that the common belief that rights and liberties were under the control of the government was challenged. The American revolutionists declared that rights and liberties come from God and are bestowed upon individuals and not government. A nation was founded on this principle, a nation that rose to lead the world. The “elites,” the collectivists have been slowing gaining control and, in many situations, have once again rationed rights and liberties.
This control by the collectivist is now being challenged. Donald Trump won an election in 2016 by declaring that power resides with the people and the government must protect rights and liberties and not control and ration them. The collectivist was so set back by the MAGA movement that they openly stole the 2020 election. Any reasonable and rationale person, after fairly reviewing the 2020 election, can arrive at no other conclusion.
The people throughout the world are agreeing with the 2016 American revolutionist that power must reside with the people and that government must not have control over the rights and liberties bestowed upon each of us by God.
We have seen the people of Hungary and Italy put into power leaders who understand this principle. We are seeing the same movement rising in other European nations like France, Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands to name a few. We also recently saw the people of Argentina elect a strong individualist, Javier Milei. Milei recently spoke to the World Economic Forum, a collectivist group dedicated to bringing control of all people under the control of one world government.
Milei reminded these “elites” that life, liberty, and property, are not under their control but are the rights of individuals. Milei explained to these aspiring dictators that power must reside with the people and not with government. When power resides with government, dictatorship is the result. When power resides with the people, freedom is the result.
Milei had promised the people of Argentina that his mission would be to restrict government and enhance freedom and liberty. He went to work to dismantle the inefficient and bloated government of Argentina. He has already consolidated 18 government ministries down to nine and refused to renew the contracts of 5,000 government workers.
Milei, like Washington, Samuel Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Henry understand they stand on the right-side of freedom. Milei is also unafraid of going into hostile territory to articulate his vision. During his campaign, he would go on TV and rail against the evils of collectivism, often shocking the anchor across from him with his bold style. And at Davos, he not only braved the ultimate lion’s den for free marketeers, he delivered a succinct but effective speech that rebutted the WEF’s usual agenda.
Milei is Argentina’s Trump. They both understand that government is the enemy of freedom, the enemy of Individual liberty, and the advocate for collectivism, which is Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive policies, which the Democrats advocate for the United States. We, who are individualists, must learn from such strong stalwarts as Milei, and apply what he has done and is doing to our own nation.
