Setting Up My Autonomous Zone

In the interest of personal independence, I set up an autonomous zone on Fazebook all by my lonesome. I can do whatever I want and am answerable to nobody. How good is that? What I did was simply set up shop and declare it my own and nobody can question it or disagree.

So I set up an autonomous zone. What right do I have, and where do rights come from?

Let me rephrase my earlier question: How stupid is that? While Facebook allows people some latitude (especially leftists, atheists, and anti-Semites) we're at their mercy. They are also supposed to follow laws, and so are users of their platform. Page owners and other users can be shut down (my own profile was shut down illegally and I was not told why "for security reasons"). They delete the account if I do the usual things that get accounts deleted.

My assertions are worthless. I can say "Mine!" until the cows come home, but that doesn't make anything mine. People can declare that they have rights, but cannot make up rights out of their imaginations. When legal systems make declarations when actually following the law, they are giving some rights, but ultimately, they are endowed by our Creator. Make up your own rules, take land by force, and you have to face the consequences for your actions.

As a Christian and an American, I know that I am responsible for my own sins. Not the sins of my forefathers (real or imagined), nor the trespasses of my neighbors.
