What Will Mankind's Greatest Advancement Be?
It seems fairly obvious to me that the single greatest advancement mankind could make is the eradication of the religious notion that government can and should solve all of the world's problems. All one must advocate in order to achieve this is the simple explanation of the so commonly misunderstood concept of "rights." So much of the world is concerned that the government must protect their right to eat in certain restaurants without being exposed to cigarette smoke, nicotine-laced water vapor or trans-fats. They say that the government must enforce these "rights", neglecting their true nature and what must be done to their neighbor in order to make it so. I implore everyone to always remember that rights are those things to be respected by others, not provided by them.
