Please enjoy our recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Luis Fernando Mises, creator of Emancipatedhuman.com and writer for dollarvigilante.com Herein we discussed how Luis became a voluntaryist, using the Libertarian Party to repeal laws, attacking the State from all angles, Discordianism, good intentions losing out to the addiction to power, socialized money, using the Libertarian Party for education and outreach, misunderstandings about greed, the driving force behind most businesses, Starbucks: it’s not about the coffee, and more!
It’s incumbent upon people to come up with some sort of strategic perspective to dismantle the state. For example, Bob LeFevre somehow works it out that it’s almost impossible to get rid of the state — from his own point of view. He is against violent revolution — okay, now that is a very respectable position; he’s also against voting; he’s against political parties — it becomes very difficult to really see how one can get to the state at all with this kind of procedure. I don’t see why we should give up something like political parties. It might be a route eventually to dismantling the state or helping to dismantle it.
Please enjoy my recent interview with Voluntaryist author Jim Limber Davis. Herein we discussed how he became an Anarchist, the value of skepticism, what is Voluntaryism, his book Liberty Defined, talking Anarchy with people on the street, the case for the Confederate States, Abraham Lincoln the Fascist, the racist Social Security Ponzi scheme, Gold/Silver as money, the minimum wage in 1964 and much more!
What light is to the eyes – what air is to the lungs – what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.
Please enjoy our recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Skyler J. Collins, a voluntaryist and the creator of www.everything-voluntary.com . Herein we discuss how Skyler came to voluntaryism, the tragic case of the Naugler family in KY (who had their 10 children forcibly removed from their home by agents of the State), busybodies and their penchant for initiating State violence, “see something say something”, being principled with your children, communities protecting themselves, the Peacekeeper App, Dave’s Arbitration Service, connecting with your neighbors, and more!
“Allowing the State to dictate how you raise your own children is like allowing Sweeney Todd to give you a cut and a shave. Chances are that some blood will be spilled.” ~ Jeremy Henggeler
There are many blatant double standards that clothe the local monopoly on violence known as law enforcement. When some people are given superhuman rights over other people simply by virtue of their shiny piece of metal, costume, or special hat and are thus able to interpret the arbitrary political edicts at their discretion to murderous ends with immunity, it is quite apparent that we do indeed live in a state of chaos and disorder. They are entirely unaccountable for their actions and do not respond to the incentives and feedback mechanisms that bind the actions of a private security agency. Regardless of their heinous actions they will get paid through extorted funds, so what then is the incentive to treat the populace as customers to be satisfied? Rather the populace is viewed more and more as sheep to be frightened into submission.
This also illustrates the lunacy of the notion “equality under the law”. When there is clearly a difference between the rulers and the subjects or the lords and their serfs, equality under the law becomes a laughable notion accepted only by the morally blind who, no doubt, have been raised to believe such contradictory nonsense through their “government schooling”. There never existed equality under the law, even back when the Constitution was just written, for the very reason that there has always been a clear separation between lawmakers and law-abiding citizens. It is the mark of a successful representative democracy to persuade the peasants into believing that they can influence the violent legislation that subjugates them nay that they are in control of their “government” at all. Man-made laws are ideas so good that they must be forced upon the population by pain of death.
We live in an era of the appeal to force AKA argumentum ad baculum. He who has the bigger guns rules. In our current society it is “government” who holds most of the guns. By this logic if “government” can kidnap, cage, or murder you then they must be the rightful authority of all things moral and just. Just like superior numbers do not change the laws of morality so too does superior force not change the laws of morality. They may have most of the guns but their true power lies in the belief in authority AKA argumentum ad verecundiam. When the people stop believing “government” has such superhuman rights and stop giving them legitimacy for their evil, then they will be recognized as the liars, extortionists, thieves, molesters, rapists, and murderers that they are. The extent to which we choose to interact with our neighbor through the violence of “government” is the extent to which we have failed as a civilized society. The extent to which we live by the sword instead of by the plough is the extent to which we have chosen to become the monsters we fear our neighbors to be. Let us put the guns down to slough away our medieval Statist shell replete with mandates, rulers, and taxations. Let us relegate Statism to the dustbin of history along with the other demon children it has spawned such as war, genocide, chain slavery etc. Let us finally emerge to recognize the dawn of man’s true Renaissance, the age of voluntary interaction amongst peaceful people. When no one obeys, no one rules!
A free market in police would reward efficient and courteous police protection to customers and penalize any falling off this standard. No longer would there be the current disjunction between service and payment inherent in all government operations, a disjunction which means that police, like all other government agencies, acquire their revenue, not voluntarily and competitively from consumers, but from the taxpayers coercively.
Please enjoy our recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week Jon Moss, an anarchist and unschooling father, joined us. Herein we discussed what led Jon down the path of unschooling, how even kindergarten in government schools is overly oppressive, corrupting the youth with the truth, the benefits of unschooling/homeschooling, how most children thrive in self-learning scenarios, whether or not college is “worth it”, the myth of socialization in government schools, the destructive side of teacher tenure, how the government school system stifles good teachers and protects the bad, teachers unions, how learning is stifled through regimentation, online learning, and more!
This is a topic that is vital for many people to hear, parents and non-parents alike! In order to ingrain the children with a profound sense of Stockholm syndrome nationalism “government” must begin it’s programming at as young and tender an age as possible. In the former Soviet Union it was only 4 years. In the USA it is 12 years or 15,000 hours of State indoctrination and massively biased revisionist history. Overarching lessons include the appeal to authority, appeal to antiquity, black and white logical fallacy, no freedom of association, no freedom of speech, knowledge and justice comes from authority, Pavlovian bells signify movement, pervading eleutheromania clock watching mentality, deviation from the curriculum is harshly discouraged, obedience to authority is rewarded, and disobedience is punished. These are the unspoken and most important lessons that every child remembers long after the insignificant irrelevant information is long forgotten. If you give your child to the State for education do not be disappointed at the result. Vacate the State!
The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda – a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make ‘good’ citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens.
