It seems we have gone past Orwell’s “double-think, double talk.” One of the reasons we are in the state of crisis, currently, is because we have so misused and abused simple English language. We think we are communicating by applying different meanings to the same words. Common everyday words.

This did not just happen. It was all part of the plan for takeover of this nation, by a sinister force going back many years ago. Even Lenin said back in the twenties, “The United States we shall not have to attack, it will fall into our hands like overripe fruit.”

Having been born in the South, a term I heard frequently growing up was “over yonder.” That could have a multitude of meanings. For some it might mean down the road a ways, or the next farm over, across the creek, across the ocean. A non-specific term used to mean different things to different folks.

When my daughter was about 12 years old, she had never heard the term. When we made a visit to Georgia, she came home from church and asked, “Where’s yonder”? When I asked her why, she said she heard her aunt talk about over yonder, and at church, they sang the song, “When the roll is called up yonder.” It was obviously confusing because the aunt referred to some place on earth, and the song referred to some non-specific beyond locality.

I frequently go to the dictionary for very simple words, and looked up, “yonder.” Not much help, describing it as “that place there.”

I was prompted to write about this, because there appears to be so many different meanings of the word “anarchy” bantered around frequently nowadays. The dictionary describes it as “no government,” “lawless confusion and political disorder.” Many accept this meaning, but others accept different meanings of the word, hence the confusion about it.

I write a lot of articles on various subjects and let me make it very clear, I’m not an anarchist. I believe in Freedom and believe Freedom to be self-responsibility and self-control. Therefore I believe in self-government.

Accordingly, inasmuch as so many try to project their self-responsibility and control on to others, as evidenced by the thousands of rules, regulations, edicts, and force, the bottom line is the end result – we are all ultimately responsible for ourselves and individual actions, whether we want it or like it or not.

To accept the premise of anarchy, denial of government, wittingly or unwittingly, denies the self-responsibility of self-government. And I don’t think most who claim to be anarchist really mean to convey that. Any more than those who sing When the Roll is Called Up Yonder mean down the road a-ways.

In this connection, to express individual Freedom, and private property Rights, to support Free-Enterprise capitalism, it is incumbent upon all of us to be specific, and stop adding to the confusion, by participation in the double-think, double talk, used by the Marxist thinkers.

We must distance ourselves from the Tower of Babel confusion of the impractical scheme of structure of the language. If it’s our desire for Freedom, and our aim to further promotion of the benefits of Freedom over bondage and enslavement, it’s self-defeating to equate anarchy with Freedom. And adds to the confusion, relative to the meaning of just what Freedom really means.

Specifically, “that place there” yonder can be applied to what anarchy implies or means to some. Advocating the Non-aggression of Freedom while claiming labels of Anarchy, appear to me to be a contradiction of terms.

Another area of contradiction of terms I have heard President Obama use quite frequently lately, describing his values relative to all his subjective proposals, he describes as “Principles.” What he promotes and preaches are not Principles of Freedom and those basic tenets upon which this nation was founded, but simply his socialism values.

Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President and drafter of the Declaration of Independence stated: “The mobs of the great cities add just so much support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

0 Responses to FREEDOM DOES NOT MEAN ANARCHY: Deja Vu “Over Yonder” Language (Issue 241)

  1. Freedom does not mean “chaos”, but it does mean “without rulers” ( an- archos). I govern myself, so I need no one to rule me.

  2. HI KENT,

    I disagree with your position relative to Anarchy & Freedom. Hopefully we can agree to disagree. I decided to respond in an article titled, “Freedom is what it is.” My associate editor posts articles and comments when she has the time. I’m going to forward a copy to you.
    Thanks for reading my articles
