-Freedom requires independence,
-Independence requires the acceptance of self-accountability, &
-Without self-accountability freedom can NOT be maintained.
Here is why...without maintaining self-accountability, many people will adopt parasitic behavior. Crime an other socially irresponsible behavior will rise...and then in order to protect itself, the host (society) will find it necessary to eliminate the parasite. If we want to maintain freedom, we must accept self-accountability. This requires that breeders and dog owners accept responsibility for their actions. For this to happen, education on responsibility is necessary. Education requires an acceptance of the truth. The truth isn't always nice per say...however, if it is accepted it can be constructive...as the truth builds prosperity via freedom, knowledge, wisdom, and Independence.
Laws then come into place to manage a problem created by the irresponsible...the parasites to society. For this reason, the K9 community must promote responsible breeding and ownership. To solve the problems of irresponsible ownership and breeding, we have to first acknowledge where the weaknesses are so we can fix those weaknesses ourselves. If we refuse to do so, then the public will eventually find it necessary to do so. Maintaining and protecting our freedom requires our independence and accountability...and the promotion of such.
Cars, guns, cigarettes, fast food all do more harm than dogs...but, there are laws regarding off of these topics that require one to be SELF ACCOUNTABLE. Cars requires licensing and insurance. Gun ownership requires that you can't be a criminal (convicted felon) or crazy. Fast food and cigarettes cost you your health...and you can't make others consume them for this reason. Using those products requires free choice...but they also come with accountability. Dog ownership and breeding has not yet required owners and breeders to be self responsible. They should be...but they are not. Many breeders seem to think that one can present an IMAGE of professionalism by creating a nice looking banner...but that does NOT MAKE ONE RESPONSIBLE.
If we are HONEST...out of sight = out of mind. So, why is the public thinking about BSL
? It is because they SEE that owners and breeders are not accepting responsibility. The public is having to deal with the consequences. If we properly secured our animals and refused to allow the public ever be subject to paying for our dogs in ANY WAY...we would be fine. If they never were exposed to a dog bite, do you really think they are going to care about the criminal that gets bit while breaking into your home? Nope. If they never had to deal with any pet over-population problem, do you really think they would care if you humanely put down any dog that you didn't want and couldn't find a suitable home for? Nope. Out of sight, out of mind...this means, it is only a problem to the public if the public has to deal with the problem. If we manage ourselves, the public will gladly move on...as it won't be a concern to them.To fight BSL
, we have to be self-accountable. This is the ONLY WAY to maintain liberty = independence and accountability. If we don't want laws to regulate us, then we need to use education and accept the philosophy of self-accountability.
Biology defines three types of relationships within a community...
1. Mutualism - both organisms benefit. Both do well. This would apply to "friends and family" as this promotes community.
2. Commensalism - one benefits, the other isn't affected. Both survive. Creating the out of sight out of mind view off the public.
3. Parasitism - one does well by harming others. In order to survive, healthy populations develop a system to resist and eradicate parasites.
If people are going to be allowed the freedom to post advertisements and banners on a public forum and do so free of charge, then "We the People
" have a responsibility to expose bogus claims or promotions of social irresponsibility...in order to protect FREEDOM!
If they want to post, OK fine...but I don't like parasitism. If we do not question social irresponsibility (which IS a form of parasitism), then we are not a free society...but are a socialistic one...and in socialism, the responsible are taxed to take care of the irresponsible. Is this what you want? For once that happens, the next step is slavery...as it becomes impossible for the freedom to survive chaos...and restrictions become more necessary to regain "order"...typically in the name of "safety."
To maintain our FREEDOMS, the parasitic way of thinking needs to be exposed and condemned. By denying self-accountability, parasitism does not operate under the philosophy of independence. As a result, parasitism is a threat to freedom by producing slavery. We do NOT want that!
