Please enjoy my recent conversation with Gabriel Scheare. Herein we discussed how he became an Anarchist, we are all born Anarchists, pre-packaged friends, finding your tribe, biblical hypocrisy, time of introspection, September 11th, climbing out of the lobster tank, Ron Paul, secular morality, Galt’s Gulch Chile, division of labor, Fort Galt, seeking family approval, peaceful parenting, I’ll tell you when you’re older, appeal to authority, earning respect, investing in the future, unspoken interconnectedness, voluntary vs. forced association, freedom to be racist, competing principles, Zeitgeist awakening, Marxism with robots, Sea-steading, floating skyscrapers, sky-steading, air ships and much more!
Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and ‘progress,’ everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man’s refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, ‘Disobedience was man’s Original Virtue.
