Fight urban planning regulations and oppose historic preservation laws. They are hysterical perversions and historical perversions. Fight the dogma of Edward Bellamy, Francis Bellamy, and Looking Backward at the Pledge of Allegiance

As a libertarian lawyer, Dr. Rex Curry is often asked about legal ways to do things that are normally illegal in the USA or in some states.  One way to avoid the USA's growing police state is to travel.

Vacations are a fun time to leave the USA and to avoid as many US laws as possible (but not really "breaking" the law because U.S. laws don't normally apply in foreign countries).  It can be a fun time to leave your home state and to avoid as many home-state laws as possible in another state (whenever friends visit from New York City we fill the car with guns and take them out shooting).  Another example: Cuban cigars can be bought in most foreign countries (the USA's police state prosecutes its citizens with felony charges for the peaceful non-violent vice of importing and smoking a Cuban cigar). Gambling is enjoyed (the USA's police state prosecutes its citizens with criminal charges for the peaceful non-violent vice of gambling in much of the USA and the only reason Florida has any land-based casino gambling is thank goodness for the Indians). Grand Cayman has a turtle farm where humans can handle sea turtles (the USA's police state prosecutes its citizens with felony charges for merely handling sea turtles.  The USA's government nearly destroyed the Grand Cayman turtle farm). Grand Cayman serves turtle burgers and turtle fritters and turtle anyway it can be prepared (that's illegal in the U.S. and they will confiscate any jewelry or products that you purchase that are made from turtles).  Mexico lets you walk on top of Mayan ruins (that is probably an arrestable offense in the USA's police state).  At the Grand Canyon, the Hualapai Indians, on their reservation, will let tourists do things that might result in arrest or hassling by federal bureaucrats. 

Cruises are a great time to learn about and liberty and meet people who love liberty too.  Take T-shirts and caps that read "Say No to Searches" and "My socialist Slave number is 262-00-6302" and "More government means you need more guns" and "" all visible at   Your audience is captive. Every time a boat photographer wants to shoot you, say "yes."  Your shirts and caps will be sprinkled throughout the photo gallery and every single passenger will see them.  And join in the videotaped activities that the cruise line replays constantly on the TV.  

Nothing ruins a vacation like the government, and especially the U.S. police state.  They demand your papers coming and going, search you and your luggage, and they want the asinine U.S. Customs form 6059B (19 CFR 122.27, 148.12, 148.13, 148.110, 148.111, 1498, 31 CFR 5316) upon your return. You can be held prisoner for hours waiting in the heat for your government to let you go home.  Everyone is fuming all over the boat about the local gestapo, and that is the perfect time to walk all the way around each level of the boat and then switch your shirt and cap and do it again, over and over, until the prisoners are freed.

SWITZERLAND  It was illegal for Americans to buy and own gold American coins, but Americans could enjoy more freedom (and that freedom) by leaving the U.S. and traveling to Switzerland, where U.S. gold coins could be purchased in Swiss banks (though it was illegal for Americans to bring those American coins back into the U.S.). A fan of the web site who is a doctor purchased U.S. gold coins in Switzerland in 1956. The Federal Reserve Act was imposed in 1913 and it expanded the government's ability to print, counterfeit and inflate its paper money, leading to more depressions created by the government, including the Government's Depression of 1929. These measures lessened American faith in government money.  Government inspectors found that most banks were healthy, but the socialism stayed, of course. Adding insult to injury, FDR confiscated every American’s gold.   That further expanded the government’s ability to counterfeit and inflate its paper money. It is sad to note that the USA's police state did not allow private ownership of gold until 1973. Sure, Roosevelt paid Americans more money for the gold he seized than did Roosevelt's socialist comrade Castro. But, it is impossible to overstate the significance of Franklin Roosevelt's confiscation from Americans. The hatred of money is the root of all evil. SUPPORT CAPITALISM ! IN GOLD WE TRUST!

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.

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.

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.

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 movment.

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' Party.

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!

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.

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 rights.

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.


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.

Stop historic preservation Nazis and Gestapo.
