Individuals go through a progression in life. Civilization is very much the same, it goes through stages of infancy, childhood, adolescence and maturity. Humanity as a whole has evolved and is now at the threshold of maturity.
In the midst of adolescent turmoil a youth can be influenced in many different ways. Will the pathway be a noble one or an ignoble one?
Will the pathway be a drug addiction like Keynesianism? Will the pathway be one of respecting private property like classical liberalism? Will the pathway be the adoption of some stoic interpretation of right and wrong leading to an empirical and sterile neocon view?
Most of the time even the pathway of drug abuses does not end in death but rather it eventually results in a return to a normal, mature life although there may be many secondary consequences that hinder the potential degree of prosperity.
That which is compatible with a peaceful, contractual and just civilization is classical liberalism. That is the mature state for human civilization. Education about the principles of classical liberalism and about ethics will help guide the vulnerable adolescent societies towards maturity.
The Mises Institute and the Campaign For Liberty and LewRockwell.com and Ron Paul are the best of mentors!
