Again, trade is a social act. Whoever undertakes to sell any description of goods to the public, does what affects the interest of other persons, and of society in general; and thus his conduct, in principle, comes within the jurisdiction of society: accordingly, it was once held to be the duty of governments, in all cases which were considered of importance, to fix prices, and regulate the processes of manufacture. But it is now recognised, though not till after a long struggle, that both the cheapness and the good quality of commodities are most effectually provided for by leaving the producers and sellers perfectly free, under the sole check of equal freedom to the buyers for supplying themselves elsewhere. This is the so-called doctrine of Free Trade, which rests on grounds different from, though equally solid with, the principle of individual liberty asserted in this Essay. Restrictions on trade, or on production for purposes of trade, are indeed restraints; and all restraint, restraint, is an evil: but the restraints in question affect only that part of conduct which society is competent to restrain, and are wrong solely because they do not really produce the results which it is desired to produce by them. As the principle of individual liberty is not involved in the doctrine of Free Trade, so neither is it in most of the questions which arise respecting the limits of that doctrine; as for example, what amount of public control is admissible for the prevention of fraud by adulteration; how far sanitary precautions, or arrangements to protect workpeople employed in dangerous occupations, should be enforced on employers. Such questions involve considerations of liberty, only in so far as leaving people to themselves is always better, than controlling them: but that they may be legitimately controlled for these ends, is in principle undeniable. On the other hand, there are questions relating to interference with trade, which are essentially questions of liberty; such as the Maine Law, already touched upon; the prohibition of the importation of opium into China; the restriction of the sale of poisons; all cases, in short, where the object of the interference is to make it impossible or difficult to obtain a particular commodity. These interferences are objectionable, not as infringements on the liberty of the producer or seller, but on that of the buyer.
Some dark path goals are inciting fear in others and recruiting others to their path. They are nourished by fear, in a pathological way. In chapter 8 of Barbara Marciniak's is another perspective of the dark path. It appears that dark path entities that have evolved beyond physical plane realities, such as Genghis Kahn, are helping humanity stay in fear, because fear creates an energy that nourishes them. A humanity in fear, bathed in violence and misery, is something that they thrive on. Humanity has proved a most productive herd for negative emotional "nectar." In a by , in his mind-blowing , he saw those beings that keep humanity in misery because they thrive on it. Those parasitic beings did not create the conditions of human misery - humans largely did that to themselves - but they capitalized on it and furthered it by using deceptive and secret tactics. and his wife echo those themes in Topper's peculiar prose. The theme of dark path beings thriving on fear, even to the point of inducing fear in people, extracting chemicals that fear produces in the human body, then bathing in it, are in Topper's writings. To bring this essay back to "Earth," how does it relate to my work? Self-servers on this planet are in it for themselves. They feel a duty to exploit others. Evil is their business, as they profit from the misery and exploitation of others. This site documents many extremely dark situations, and many people refuse to believe that people will actively and consciously create situations in which others suffer and die. They cannot believe that people could act so "diabolically." Dark path initiates depend on that denial. in .Because the dark path is the study of that which is not, deception and secrecy are their tools, which is largely how the USAs government operates. In the end, the dark path folks greatest victims are themselves, and the most deceived chumps of all are themselves, as they completely misunderstand who and what they are. The greatest deception is self-deception. It takes two to tango, and while dark path beings play their games they actively deceive others, and their greatest victory is not forcing people to do their bidding, but having them freely choose to.Dark path initiates know that few will consciously let themselves be used by dark path practitioners. So, they must deceive people into serving dark path interests instead of their own. That is not an easy trick. Most people are consciously committed to neither path. They worship comfort and merely try surviving. Full bellies, a roof over their heads, and their addictions temporarily sated are primary goals of the vast majority of humanity at this time. Most people can be called "good," because they will try doing the "right" thing if it does not cost them too much, and usually will not spend much effort to hurt others. About half of Americans would return a wallet they found on the ground, provided it did not have too much money in it.
