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
-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!
I am not a political activist. I do not advocate for marches, protests, or the signing of petitions as a means of effecting change. This represents the acknowledgment that political predators have legitimate authority over my life. The host does not concern itself with the opinion of the parasite. Shuffle off and deprive it of nourishment and rest assured, it will perish of it’s own accord. The laboring industrious have no need for the leeching bureaucrat. Indeed a new Renaissance will be realized when producers finally stop prostrating themselves in obeisance to the rulers. Every extorted tax dollar is one less unit of currency that could have improved a product, created a new product, started a business, or enriched the lives of a peaceful human being. This is the principle of the seen vs. the unseen. Stop feeding the beast with your currency, attention, and participation.
I am a teacher. I pass on the lessons of Peace, Compassion, Economics, and Voluntaryism I have gleaned from those who have come before me so that I can do my part to help lift humanity to dizzying heights of prosperity and wealth. I teach with words and by example. I teach to empower my fellow brothers and sisters. I teach to make the world a more peaceful, gentle, compassionate, and loving place. I may not live to see a world absent the belief in the State but that will not deter my focus or render impotent my words. That some 19th century Abolitionists did not live to see the end of chain slavery did not detract from the power of their message. I am privileged to learn and espouse this magnificent philosophy. It has improved my life in countless ways. It behooves me to spread it far and wide. I remain eternally grateful to all the peaceful human beings who strive to leave the world a more beautiful place then when they entered it. You are my heroes!
