Suffering Is The Greatest Teacher

Many of us tend to shy away from and avoid suffering, hardship, and pain. It is only natural since our bodies are constructed to desire pleasure and shun discomfort. It is our biological imperative.

 

Nevertheless sometimes it becomes necessary to override our limbic system base desires in order to attain a nobler goal. Forward thinking and the ability to contemplate abstract thoughts allows human beings to plan and execute complex strategies. This is the genesis of the great wealth that has been created that has lifted so many out of their default state of poverty. This is the enduring legacy of our forefathers.

 

The deferral of gratification is what separates the human being from the beast. You are part of a great human tradition.

 

The soul would have no rainbow, if the eyes had no tears.

Native American proverb

The Philosophy of Voluntaryism Ep 6: Is There A Role For Emotions In Voluntaryism?

Is there a role for emotions in The Philosophy of Voluntaryism?!

In our sixth episode of The Philosophy of Voluntaryism we discuss a point of much contention between the rigid and dangerously sharp edges of logic and the soft and often erratic nature of emotions.

-How does our previous topic of NVC relate to the emotional and logic needs of the Philosophy of Voluntaryism?

-If we don’t shun logic, then why should we shun emotions?

-Just as we should acknowledge and understand bad logic, we should acknowledge and understand negative emotions.

Emotions play a critical role in understanding how to understand Voluntaryism. It is why Voluntaryism is the evolution of simple anarchism. It is anarchism evolved through the understanding and use of empathy.

Statism Is A Relic Of A Barbaric Epoch

The urge to be accepted by the tribe and to conform to societal norms is powerful. It is this ancient characteristic that has kept humanity alive throughout our most dangerous and treacherous prehistoric past. At those times conforming to the tribe was a matter of life or death as very few people could survive on their own. All this has changed with technological development and the Industrial Age. We are now no longer so weak and dependent on each other. We can work to earn money to purchase the labor of other skilled artisans. We do not have to be 100% self-sufficient. Indeed this is one reason that humanity has been able to lift itself out of poverty.

Philosophy of Voluntaryism Ep 5 – How To Protest

The concept of ‘right & wrong’ implies the common understanding of a set of criteria to compare actions to. Since most people do not have that readily available, condemning the actions of others is often combative.

 

In this episode we discuss

-defining terms

-efficiency of protesting

-why protesting government is like voting (and doesn’t work)

-long term and short term goals of protest

 

Protesting is important. Understanding what we are protesting, why, and how to be effective in the right context is also important!
