Join libertarians against historic preservation legislation. Learn about
the Committee for the Protection of your Rights (CPR). The fact that CPR
opposes the historic ordinances does not mean that they oppose historic
preservation. They oppose laws about historic preservation.
Learn about Randal O'Toole, a researcher with the Cato Institute in Washington
D.C. He says that government planning does more harm than good. He is well
known for his libertarian opposition to any form of urban planning. He
exposes the nonsensical interventionist moves by government to disrupt the
forces of supply and demand in an effort to engineer certain outcomes in
our sadly mixed economy.

Historic preservation laws are bad. When government aids historic
preservation with tax dollars, regulations, or in any way, the government
becomes the violator of property rights. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
The purpose of government is to protect individuals and their property
from interference by others. That is why Libertarians, Objectivists,
and freedom-loving people oppose government assistance in historic preservation.
So long as preservationists spend their own money and time, and do not
use government to pursue their petty fetish, they may do as they like with
property they own or purchase, and leave the property of others alone. http://rexcurry.net/curry-mansion.html
Historic preservation laws result from histrionic whining by hysterical
perversionists. When the government is involved, a truthful sign would state:
"Historic Preservation: Your tax dollars become history."
As an attorney, the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance
Secrets") is consulted about historic preservation laws, historic districts
and other violations of private property rights. Known as the "Libertarian
Historic Preservationist," he notes that today's historic preservationists
impede greater histories of the future. Historic preservationists block future
historic structures. They prevent historic homes from being replaced by
new homes that would also become historical. Newer structures become
more historical than the old ones, thanks to capitalism.
Historic preservationists owe their entire movement and a debt of
gratitude (which they will never pay) to capitalism. Historic homes
and buildings were built by capitalists and they are historical only because
capitalists kept building other homes and buildings. Preservable history
exists only because change occurred.
Historic preservation is antidisestablishmentarianism. The 28-letter
word describes people who stop others from fighting the establishment and
changing things. Preservationism was thoroughly debunked by the capitalist
philosopher Ayn Rand in her novel "The Fountainhead." Preservationists
are neo-luddites and, like the luddites of 19th Century England, they fight
progress as well as the liberty, property rights and capitalism that bring
progress, and they use old structures as an excuse. http://rexcurry.net/commentary/philadelphia.html
It is the dogma of American socialists like Francis Bellamy (author of
the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of the book "Looking
Backward") and their desire to nationalize all property in their global nationalism
That dogma of socialism not only destroys history and historic structures,
it also destroys prosperity and lives. It did all of that and more in the
socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million slaughtered
under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples'
Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers'
Some preservationists say that they are trying to "teach history."
What lesson is to be learned? Judging from the regulatory slant of
preservationists, old structures are grotesque reminders of how bad things
were before government grew so big and preservationists grew so powerful.
A principled preservation group would restore not just old structures,
but what produced them: free enterprise, progress, and the historic relationship
of government and people. Old homes would teach of times when taxes
and government revenue were tiny, when old neighborhoods and private mass
transit flourished, when historic preservationists could not impose their
whims on private property. Old homes would memorialize a history of individual
rights and capitalism. A principled preservation group would act without
government aid and against it. Now that's historic preservation! http://rexcurry.net/curry-mansion.html
Modern preservationists do not preserve history. All real estate
has history spanning the age of the earth. Why do preservationists
fixate on present structures? "Hysterical" preservationists can only
histrionically whine, "It's what's there now!" Preservationism is strange
idolatry that romanticizes old homes as empty symbols of arbitrary times.
They do not want to preserve everything that is historic, and they
do not want to restore the historic Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, nor
even remind anyone about those parts of their romanticized history. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
Historic preservation does not involve conflicts between property "rights"
and "responsibilities." There is never such a conflict. People
have property rights and everyone's responsibility is not to violate those
The same government that trumpets preservation destroyed historic neighborhoods
with urban renewal, strangled downtown businesses with taxes and bureaucracy,
and helped build highways through historic communities. The expansive
government preservationists support destroys more historical private property
than it ever saves.
Modern preservationists shirk responsibility. Preservationists do not
plan ahead, but wait until new construction nears and then cry for government
to intervene. It never matters how preservation impacts dreary people
who need jobs, food, clothing, and shelter. Preservationists who enlist
government are cavalier people with a love for old structures no deeper than
their neighbors' pockets.
Stop historic preservation Nazis and Gestapo.
