The state’s deceptive use of language—beware of it

The state often does more than just use the language of ethics for its purpose, however. It often promotes immorality in the name of freedom to distract people from their own enslavement. It encourages a definition of liberty as freedom from morality, and classifies sin as human rights. License to sin is defined as the essence of freedom. Such a people then fail to see their enslavement through high taxes, intrusive government, a lower standard of living because of the lower purchasing power of the government’s fiat money, and the abridgement of their historic liberties.
