Since becoming libertarian, Thanksgiving has come to resonate with me more and more. Being, basically, a harvest festival, it is a good time to look at the bounty resulting from the efforts of the past year. It presents an opportunity to reflect on our actions and evaluate them relative to the outcomes, to decide if we are on the right path, and to consider what changes we could make in our goals, practices, and behaviour. Furthermore, since being libertarian means embracing personal responsibility for one’s life, Thanksgiving may be a time to enjoy some well-earned pride in one’s achievements, both as an individual, and through voluntary cooperation with others.
I hope this holiday finds you happy, in the company of friends and loved ones, and satisfied with this year’s harvest. Best wishes!
