    Liberate Wall Street! (And Main Street, Assorted Cities, etc.)

    Liberate Wall Street! (And Main Street, Assorted Cities, etc.)

    If the authoritarian anarchists (which, weird as it may be, is what they are) insist on using the language of occupation, so be it.

    That means the rest of us can use the parallel language of liberation.  When the police clear out occupations, we should refer to the event as the liberation of those spaces.

    We don’t need America’s cities to be “occupied” by law-breaking extremists. We need America’s cities to be liberated.

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from crony socialism that undermines markets and enriches politicians and their friends;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from job-killing, over-criminalizing regulations that keep businesses, small and large, from hiring workers and serving their customers;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from unfair taxation that fuels unproductive policies;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from rent-seeking and rent-taking that undermines our republic and promotes toxic relationships between special interests and politicians ;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from crime and terrorism, with government accomplishing its first duty before taking on unhelpful optional tasks;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from the government-union education cartels that are failing America’s future;

    We need America’s cities to be liberated from moral blindness that obscures who our true friends and enemies are;

    Above all, we need America’s cities to be liberated from those politicians who use the force of government to impinge on, rather than to promote, freedom, prosperity, and fair order.

    That’s my list.  What do you think we need to be liberated from?

    You’re right, but “Liberation Theology” in its several iterations will be thrown against your point.

    A form of “liberation from …..” would be more durable. TEA Party movement rests on that form.

    For example, Liberation from Sadism.
