Folly of Fanaticism

There is a sense of fanaticism that many experience when confronted with the facts of government’s immorality and unnecessary existence. It is defended like a religion, except this particular belief involves mass enslavement of other individuals.

No system or absence of a system deserves such rigid adherence. Practice the principle of absolute doubt: free your mind from fanatical beliefs. Tell the truth, what do you have to lose?

You may lose your fear, you may lose your hope, but I don’t believe you will suffer for very long before something new takes its place. Your mind needs space then form to arrive at function.

Give a man a place to express creativity, and he will fill it. Take it away and he will be crushed until it is replaced with a bigger space, then he will be delighted. Such is the way it is with statism and voluntaryism.

Tool Toward Peace

Peace and civility are exist right there alongside liberty. This is not a mistake, for when a new liberty is established, the people rush to provide for one-another.

So what can be done to expand the purview that the heart so longs for? I imagine the tool itself lies within your own being. It is the power of desire. The more desire you have for something to occur, the faster and more readily it does.

A sense of urgency is necessary for the establishment of freedom, yet that is not the only thing that we have to strive for. Actual work in the name of liberty is required, but common decency while doing that work leads to a more accepting populous.

Dreams

Dreams tell us life is worth living. Without hope from dreams we don’t have the persistence to finish what we start, the balls to finish what we find scary and hard.

So why not live like you’ll accomplish your dreams? Don’t have an attitude of “I’ll give it my best shot for 3 years, and if it doesn’t work out, I guess it wasn’t meant to be!”, have an attitude of being buried doing what you enjoy, where you enjoy doing it.

Subjugating your long-term fulfillment for your short-term euphoria is a recipe for disaster, but don’t think it will be too hard.

Determine your goals, and the plans required to reach them. Starting now is important.

Overthrowing Ideas

“My argument with the pure anarchists is they think the oblivion is the path, from which will spring a healthier society. And I completely disagree with that. It would take decades, and millions of lives, if it were pushed over the brink tomorrow. We would never live to see the new ‘better’ society that would theoretically grow from god-knows how many civil wars, and an incalculable amount of chaos that would arise in all the major cities, generations of hostile MadMax civilization.”
Bill Brasky

The above quote is fundamentally missing the point. My view is that government should not be thought of an existing power separate from man, but as a meme: an idea that spreads from one mind to another.

Remember: government is a particularly nasty mind virus because of the 12 years of indoctrination that virtually every student goes through.

Mr. Brasky is misunderstanding that instead of government being violently reduced in power and influence, it should be sidestepped by undermining the very legitimacy itself.

Aggression is imposed upon society by society. It does not exist in a vacuum of individuals.
