As I was walking up the stairs from my shower, my towel fell off. I said to my wife, "this is how I celebrate my independence." But then I realized that the 4th of July isn't celebrated for my independence, it is celebrated for our independence. Is the contradiction of celebrating the independence of a collective lost on everyone else?
As a libertarian I am rarely more conflicted than I am on the 4th of July. On the one hand, I support nothing more than the overthrow of tyrannical regimes. On the other, I despise nothing more than the nationalistic worship of the State. Today I am in a good mood, so I am going to focus on the former. I am hoping you do the same!
