  • Statists seem to reject anarchy based on a fundamental fear of giving people freedom. That freedom is what turns people evil. Parents today seem to control their children out of that same fear that people in the world can’t be trusted and will hurt their child, and it is so bad the kid needs to be kept in a bubble 24/7. But also, the child is controlled because free play and exploration is seen as so dangerous, as if a child directing their own life is the catalyst to societal destruction. Then the child grows up through the trauma, unable to handle life or freedom and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The parents’ worst fears are realized as true as their now adult child struggles to handle freedom for the first time. So often I see this covered up and ignored, that people are oblivious to the cycle of abuse and continually believe that murderers pop up out of nowhere for no reason. Just think, if statists knew what really caused people to become mentally ill, criminals, and/or murderers, then they would support anarchy as a way of minimizing this.   It’s funny how anarchy is the best solution for the most destructive society as well as evolving that society into something much better.

  • Is there such a thing as a victimless crime?  If a thief robs a Bank, aren’t all the customers and the Bank victims? Can anyone point to any kind of a crime that is not with a basic lack of respect for the other members of society?  In recent years States have enacted “Hate” Crime Laws or enhancements to sentences.  Isn’t the act of committing a Crime an act which lacks respect for the other members of a society.  How does it change when you call it: For the Crime of the Hate?

  • Or should there be prisons? There was one video I saw on You tube but I cant find it, stating “No prisons in a Free society.” If everyone carried guns, would we even need State/Federal prisons? I believe you should have private institutions like extended care living facilities that could be charity based, to look after so called, “criminals.” My idea, was that you can have one that looks after each-type-of-crime. Such as, having one facility for violent criminals, another for sex criminals, and another for theft. That way, each category can be examined separately instead of throwing them in all-together which is a festering danger. If any of you can help me find information on no prisons in a free society., please let me know. Videos are always great and easy.

  • I had a serious epiphany driving home from work today. I had realized, I don’t have to feel guilty or afraid anymore because of what society or the government would label me as.   I just drove home and felt…pureness. Innocence for ONCE in my life. And it all came from the feeling of Freedom. Having Freedom, and recognizing it in others. Even before a court of “law.” They have no right to take my Freedom away, and in thinking this I realized, that I was already, and always will be, Free.   When I parked at my plot I saw two young girls and a boy, and one of the girls had a puppy and the puppy was SO HAPPY! Full of joyful curiosity for adventure, and then I realized Freedom was in that puppy. And I thought…that is Freedom.   As the boy and girl with the puppy walked ahead, I saw the other girl turn back and walk towards a rose bush, she picked a rose from the bush, and then I had witnessed… that is Freedom.   No one has ANY right, to take that away from anyone. NO ONE. Neither YOU nor me, God or the Devil himself… NO ONE! (Not that I’m religious mind you, no offense.)   Freedom is more than just speaking freely and choosing freely.  It is being able to be like that puppy, or like that girl that had the ability of CONSCIENCE to pick that flower out of her own Free Will.   In these moments I had the epiphany of TRULY respecting EVERYONES Freedom and understood what Freedom was all about.   Maybe I’m just a sentimental bastard, or maybe I’m just an emotional.   But I do know, that this feeling of Freedom is too beautiful for ANYONE to take it away from anyone else.   I personally feel that we can rehabilitate thousands of people in the penal system, if we simply explained to them the concept of Freedom: that it brings happiness and joy and compassion to others, and without Freedom, there will be none of those things. They will not exist. Freedom is pain, Freedom is suffering, but its also joy, life, happiness and compassion!   Have any of you had moments like this? Where time just slows down and catches up with your thoughts? And then BOOM! It clicks. It makes sense, you have an epiphany of the human soul. Hopefully there is someone out there that has had it.
