The Cycle of Life and the Cacophony of Statism

The circle of life as it relates to nature (dead plant matter), business, and the economy is such that resources are always conserved and can never be destroyed. In the natural world there is a clear cycle of birth, growth, death, and birth. There is no waste. All resources are conserved. Even in death resources go to support new life.

 

As it is in the natural world so to it is in the economic world. Businesses are born, grow, perish, and new businesses are born. It takes a vast amount of resources to start a new business and attempt to provide value. Through their patronage or lack thereof only the consumers can decide if the market is well served by this new business. If the market rejects it then it is by definition an inefficient allocation of scarce resources and its best value to the market is in death. This frees up those scarce resources to be used by other intrepid and bold entrepreneurs to try their hand at serving the market.

 

This natural process can be interfered and meddled with only when coercion and force is introduced into this magnificently functioning symphony i.e. the State. At this point it becomes a cacophony of zombie undead institutions, artificially propped up and unnaturally maintained. Reality can be staved off only for so long. To believe resources are not scarce does not make them so. Statism is a self-destructive ideology, from whose ashes a wonder will emerge of epic proportions that will catapult human progress to the stratosphere and beyond. I look to the future with bright and hopeful eyes at what magnificent splendor awaits us.

Surround Yourself With People Who Inspire You

 

We must be civil and courteous to everyone we meet. If the sentiment is not reciprocated, respectfully retreat, no argument or hostility is required. There is no shame in accepting some people to be incompatible with one’s nature. We all discriminate with who we choose to spend the valuable finite amount of time we have on Earth. This is at the direct expense of other people. There is no time for insults, shaming, and degradation. Spend your precious time with only those who inspire, motivate, and uplift you. In helping each other we become stronger. The rising tide raises all boats.

Philosophy of Voluntaryism Ep 4: Non-Violent Communication, How To Build Bridges

 

Role playing games use skill points, experience points, and such to level up playable characters, learning how to communicate is a lot like that. We learn how to interact with others based on what people know while we are children first. We can only learn by social behavior to begin with.

After that we can ask other questions. However, learning how to communicate beyond what we pick up subconsciously seems to be a little more difficult. Words have meaning. And these meanings can be altered or interpreted differently based on a number of different stimuli.

Body language, tone of voice, inflection, word choice, and actual comprehended definition of a word can all affect the perspective of others we communicate with. Most importantly of all of these things is the difference between observation and judgment.

Non-Aggression Parenting Podcast Ep 1: Introduction and Haircut Stories

 

The core idea behind this program is to explore the crazy idea of treating our children like human beings instead of obedient property. To understand this concept it is our goal to help shed light on how to the importance of teaching kids how to reason, peaceful parenting, attachment parenting, through the ideas of self ownership and nonaggression!

 

In this pilot episode we introduce ourselves, explain where we are coming from, and help guide you through the rabbit hole of wonder that is often fundamentally different from the idea of teaching authority and obedience but with the same goal of preparing our children to be more than order takers and order followers.

 

What makes the ‘revolutionary’ concepts of self-ownership, property rights, and nonaggression so important to teach our children? How could these ideas help you and your children?

 

How much of a difference will explaining the purpose of acting a specific way will make when talking to children? Employing reasoning with children, even if they are not quite able to understand everything all at once or even in the same day will help develop their cognitive abilities.

Telling your children ‘because I said so’ is like a precursor to hearing ‘obey because it’s the law’ when they are an adult. Context and clarity in communication and action is important to the development of critical thinking skills. These skills can be learned through as simple a task of self-responsibility as cutting one’s hair.

 

An underlying goal is to ensure that our children are prepared to step foot into a world where freedom of choice is the status quo, not freedom of pre-selection. Respecting the child in the moment will help them in the future by giving them the experience to understand the difference between demanded respect with undertones of coercion and voluntary respect to create trust, loyalty, and positive reputations.

 

Topics discussed: background, Stefan Molyneux, The Facts About Spanking, authoritarian parenting is exhausting, comfort with knives and fire, treating kids with respect, belief in authority, apologize to your kids if you have wronged them, child haircut stories, respect self ownership, understanding the consequences of decisions, not having all the answers, teaching independent thinking, ear piercing infants, circumcision, blaming one’s parents for their mistakes, rise of the digital age, 50 Real Differences Between Men and Women, college/university irrelevancy, Joel Salatin from Polyface Farm and more!
