Martin Luther King Junior day and what it means –

I highly recommend that you read this article all the way through before making assumptions regarding the author, website or anything else. Only a fool believes that this government (regardless its president) cares about or wants to help those who need the most. Only we can help ourselves, its time to stop relying on a broken and outdated method of subjugation. Thanks for reading!


Many individuals would have you believe that Martin Luther King Junior was a saint, hero and one of the greatest people of all time. To some he was all of those things, to others, those like myself he unfortunately served to further increase the bonds of slavery that the state holds so many under. New laws rarely decrease crime or reduce problems, instead laws will always have at least one of three different results.

  • They will increase the number of potential criminals and resulting crime
  • Further divide society along either racial, class, ethnic or religious lines
  • Increase the revenue generated from theft of those who work to produce it

So what does Martin Luther King Junior day mean to me personally? As an individual, atheist and voluntaryist I detest physical slavery, aggressive non defensive violence and the state. Martin Luther King Junior was a tireless promoter of natural rights. His life was dedicated to what he saw as a the solution, legal equality. Unfortunately, as anyone can easily see using the state to fix the states problems only furthers the real problem. I make it a habit not to celebrate the days dedicated to anyone except my loved ones birthdays. I will gather with family on other major holidays but personally do not agree with the use of holidays or holy days as celebratory approaches.

Thank you Martin Luther King Junior for being a man who desired more then what he was given as his lot in life. However, I will respectfully decline to celebrate a day enshrining you as more then just a man desiring more for others around him. I will however offer up my support in another way if others are interested.

On January 15th, this coming Monday I may gladly join others in front of the local police station with full pressure fire hoses and well trained salivating attack dogs. When the police come out I will tell them, “Go back where you came from,” and open up the hoses and release the dogs. I may bring expandable batons or the old PR24 and as they lay writhing on the ground start beating them and drag them around by their hair. After all, isnt this what their predecessors and many modern cops love to do against any and all that “defy” their falsely gained “authority”?

So celebrate Martin Luther King Junior day, I wont, but I will teach my children the evils of men that caused the good men (regardless the many various personal issues uncovered) to stand up for others. I will continue to teach my children what the real evil is, and why until it is gone we will not live free. What will you do on Martin Luther King Junior day?


Free the mind and the body will follow.
