Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Donnie, one of the co-hosts of the Force 2 Freedom Podcast. Herein we discuss voluntary/involuntary and beneficial/non beneficial interactions and all the variations, effective ways to bring the ideas of liberty to members of the military, a bit on Donnie’s background, knowing your audience, “hey, you goddamn hippy”, empathy, Chris Cantwell and the use of force argument, being a ‘good witness’, how to lubricate the mind by buying someone a beer and building up a rapport, the laws of supply and demand, how government takes the civil out of civilization, logicalfallcies.info, the Department of Offense, how to let it go when you’ve rubbed too deep, staying away from the Constitution/flags/wars when trying to win over vets, Scott Horton and AntiWar.com, Adam Kokesh and NVC, how the Constitution is a series of prohibitions, and more!
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
The forest is nothing without the trees. If it is harmful to the individual, it is harmful to society. It is not a Free Market Economy vs. a Mixed Economy or Command Economy. It is economic slavery governed by a ruling elite vs. peaceful people engaging in voluntary and consensual interaction. A regulation is strangulating the entrepreneur/employer by means of violent legislation. A tax is currency that is extorted from an individual or business by the threat of kidnapping or death should that individual resist. Both taxes and regulations divert precious resources away from production and customer satisfaction in order to placate the political megalomaniacs who will waste that stolen currency on pork barrel projects, boondoggles, and violent occupations, invasions, assassinations, drone strikes, genocide, and overseas war. They drive up prices and sacrifice quality in the marketplace. It is one giant Broken Window Fallacy. It is always a lose-lose proposition.
“Government” is a monopoly on initiated aggression over a given geographical region funded by extortion and propped up by the belief in the myth of authority. Saying that we need “government” to prevent certain businesses from polluting falsely assumes that “government” is not the largest polluter of all by means of the U.S. military and that our sociopathic political control freaks necessarily have the best intentions in mind.
Green Party environmentalists would do well to not forget the pollution of dead bodies and corpses that has littered history whenever “government” gets involved in anything. That is the only pollution that worries me. Once we get that taken care of then we can turn our attention to clean air, potable water, and fertile land. It was not the Anarchists that dropped two atomic bombs on defenseless cities immediately killing thousands, violently interned thousands of Japanese-Americans and German-Americans, exterminated Native Americans by the millions, captured, castrated, raped, and enslaved millions of Africans and Irish for centuries, waged bloody wars, murdered millions of German Jews in gas chambers, starved millions of Chinese and Russians due to misguided Communistic economic policies, killed or maimed 1 million Iraqis, and economically enslaved present generations and the unborn to crippling debt and unfunded liabilities so that we may continue to live in the phony dream of a thriving economy.
These insane megalomaniacs care only about securing their own power and ruling over peaceful people. If they express a concern for the environment it is only because they believe such rhetoric will land them more votes due to popular sentiment of the times. If we lived in the early 1800s you can be damned sure many if not all politicians would be campaigning on the grounds of supporting chain slavery and how best to subjugate the negro. This is not for any concern over slave masters but rather because popular sentiment dictates that a pro chain slavery perspective is likely to get one elected by support of those special interest groups. It is not only that “government” corrupts but also that it attracts the corruptible. If you think you can wear the ring of power and not be corrupted by its influence than you suffer from a destructive delusion far greater than ignorance. It is not that some classes are unfit to rule. All classes are unfit to rule! Vacate the State!
Americans shall never have real, lasting peace so long as we give our allegiance to a king — that is, in our case, to the whole conglomeration of institutionalized exploiters and murderers we know as the State.

The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?
Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we fielded some listener questions. Herein we tackled “How courts operate in a free society and what of the criminals that refused to submit to the process?”, “Where do rights come from and is this an irrelevant question?”, “How to lure the poor/disabled away from the safety net of the State?”, “What would we do in a SHTF scenario?”, “What is our preference: cats or dogs?”, and more!
The welfare state is the oldest con game in the world. First you take people’s money away quietly, and then you give some of it back to them flamboyantly. Thomas Sowell
This is what happens when we advocate for “government” which by definition puts the collective or “society” over the individual. The collective is never more important than the individual! If you truly believe this then by all means donate 100% of your currency to “government and send your precious children off to die for banksters, politicians, and war profiteers overseas in the War on Terror. Nothing is stopping you! The individual be damned!
If, however, you value the rights of the individual you must respect every individual’s right to do with their body and their property as they wish. To ignore this is to ignore that individual’s self-ownership. Indeed our body is our first property. If we do not have a primary claim on our body, how can we possibly own anything else? You feed your body. You nourish your body. You take care of your body. If you wish to live to 100 years, become indebted to someone else, enter into an intimate union with another, refuse medical treatment, or kill yourself nobody has the right to stop you. If somebody purports to have a higher claim on your body then they have become your master and you their slave. Never allow any man or institution to make such a false claim!
Violence is only justified when someone attempts to subjugate you or otherwise coerce you into doing something against your will. This is known as self-defense. Every organism in nature has means for self-defense or they would not survive for long. This is requisite for survival. Such means may include fangs, venom, claws, speed, camouflage, size, strength etc. True pacifism is self-destructive. Obedience to authority is not a virtue. It is one of the most destructive characteristics a human being can exhibit! It is the cause of all of the horrific atrocities we read in the history books! It is the most dangerous superstition!
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
