Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Prof CJ, an anarchist and history professor, who is the host of Prof CJ’s Dangerous History Podcast. Herein we discussed being born an anarchist but having statism bludgeoned into you, learning history as a springboard to anarchism, ranking the U.S. Residents of the Awful Office, some debunking of Jefferson’s myth, protecting your family from the stupid and evil, David and Goliath, Teddy Roosevelt: the perpetual 6 year old, Skull and bones, the Porcellian Club, the Bush family, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, James J Hill and the Great Northern Railway, the Myth of the Robber Barons, how pools are totally statist, the race between freedom and power in the technological world, the double-edged sword of technology, how McGraw-Hill are fascist bastards, and more!
History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there.
Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. Herein we discuss the contradictory nature of the reports surrounding the SC church shooting, the absurdity of gun-control advocates, how citizen disarmament leads to democide, the counterproductive nature of gun-free zones, what to do in a free society when your neighbor buys a tank, how ridiculous it is to blame the tool instead of the actor, and more!
This battle for ‘common-sense’ gun control laws pits emotion and passion against logic and reason. All too often in such a contest, logic loses. So, expect more meaningless, if not harmful, ‘gun control’ legislation. Good news – if you’re a crook.

The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion draws all things else to support and agree with it. And though there be a greater number and weight of instances to be found on the other side, yet these it either neglects and despises, or else-by some distinction sets aside and rejects, in order that by this great and pernicious predetermination the authority of its former conclusion may remain inviolate.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
The question, “What is Voluntaryism?” is one that brings me particular joy in answering when it is asked with an open mind. We all have different perspectives on religion, culture, government, and life. Such overwhelming variety in opinion can be discouraging to some, but I invite this as an intellectual challenge. It is only when you step out of your comfort zone and test unfamiliar waters do you grow in any respect. If you are comfortable and complacent in all that you do, then you are not trying hard enough. One must put oneself in the difficult situations of defending one’s position in the midst of formidable debaters. This is the fertile soil in which spiritual growth is encouraged and nourished. Stir the waters of entrenched corrupt interests! Do not allow evil to go unpunished! The incessant vexing of political crooks is the noble occupation of the virtuous.
A government is a compulsory territorial monopolist of ultimate decision-making (jurisdiction) and, implied in this, a compulsory territorial monopolist of taxation. That is, a government is the ultimate arbiter, for the inhabitants of a given territory, regarding what is just and what is not, and it can determine unilaterally, i.e., without requiring the consent of those seeking justice or arbitration, the price that justice-seekers must pay to the government for providing this service.
