HISTORY IS FAR FROM OVER:
The blue nations are free; the grey - less so; the red - not really free at all:
SADLY: Most people in the world still live under one for of tyranny or another: China, Russia, the Muslim world...
And the South American democracies seem to be slipping backwards into statism/socialism/tyranny.
I pray that 2010 sees a new birth of freedom for all humanity.
Especially the nearly 3 billion who live in states which hinder their innate God-given freedom.
Freedom is good in and of itself.
But also: Prosperity is a by-product of freedom and liberty.
A freer world will be one in which living standards and life-spans increases.
A freer world will have more industry everywhere, (unhindered by either socialism or eco-fascism - MISANTHROPIC IDEOLOGIES based on lunatic theories, whether called Marxism or Maoism or Stalinism or Hitlerism of Mussolinism or Chavezism - OR OBAMANISM, and Gaiaism).
