Who is Joe and why does he need Liberty?

Joe is everyone.  You are Joe.  Everyone you know is Joe.  Liberty is the message of voluntary exchange of ideas commerce and otherwise between Free thinking and Free living individuals.  We need Liberty because without it, there is Tyranny.

I hope that it inspires you to write your ideas on Liberty.  To voice yourself and take up the struggle of Liberty.  Freedom and Liberty are not free, and they are not without peril.  It is not easy and it can often be a tumultuous Journey.  The pay off is in knowing that you made a difference.  You helped someone develop their personal Philosophy.

The Journalist’s Creed

I believe in the profession of Journalism.
I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of responsibility, trustees for the public; that all acceptance of lesser service than the public service is a betrayal of this trust.
I believe that clear thinking, clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.
I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true.
I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.
I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by one’s own pocket book is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.
I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should alike serve the best interests of readers; that a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that supreme test of good journalism is the measure of its public service.
I believe that the journalism which succeeds the best-and best deserves success-fears God and honors man; is stoutly independent; unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power; constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of the privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance, and as far as law, an honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship, is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.

From the Great writer H.L. Mencken:

"I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind - that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking. 
     I believe that no discovery of fact, however trivial, can be wholly useless to the race, and that no trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent, can be anything but vicious. 
     I believe that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty... 
     I believe that the evidence for immortality is no better than the evidence of witches, and deserves no more respect. 
     I believe in the complete freedom of thought and speech... 
     I believe in the capacity of man to conquer his world, and to find out what it is made of, and how it is run. 
     I believe in the reality of progress. 
     I - But the whole thing, after all, may be put very simply. I believe that it is better to tell the truth than to lie. I believe that it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe that it is better to know than be ignorant."

I hope to bring truth through integrity as defined below:

"Living with integrity means Not settling for less than what you know you deserve. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe."― Barbara De Angelis

I encourage anyone that would like to contribute directly or indirectly (ghost writing) to get in contact through e-mail or comment board.  The message of Liberty does not care what country you come from.  Truth, honesty, integrity, knowledge and understanding.
