Ok, I had a bout of inspiration as I woke up today. I had been a bit torn on what I would do as one of my first “full fledged” vlogs (with the new mic, backdrop, mixer, webcam, etc).
The topic of the vlog is going to be, “Anarchism/Voluntarism FAQ”. In this VLOG, I intend to answer many of the questions I often get, the easy questions and especially the tough questions. Feel free to add your question here and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll do some research; but it WILL be answered. (more…)
I have a rare treat for my readers today. This is an audio book, It’s a Jetsons World: Private Miracles and Public Crimes, read by Stefan Molyneux. This book is by far one of the best descriptions of how fantastic of a world we live in, yet often are not aware of it, because we become desensitized to it and take it for granted.
We often do not fully realize the potential of what we have available to us, perhaps because we are slaves to our day-to-day perspectives and habit patterns. Sometimes it helps to step back for a moment, so we may realize what is available to us.
Think back just a decade or two and remember what the world was like. Could you have even imagined all of the wonderful tools that are now available to virtually everyone at little if any cost? Imagine what it would be like to go directly from the world of the 1980’s to the world of today? Wouldn’t you be blown away by the fantastic pace of change that has happened in many areas of life?
The marketplace of innovation and ideas has brought us so many magnificent additions; but it’s up to us to figure out how to get the most out of it. Imagine what it will be like in another 10-20 years, if the marketplace of innovation and ideas is allowed to continue along. Furthermore, imagine what it will be like if people are motivated by the inspiration they receive, when they contemplate the vast potential of everything we have and are in the process of creating.
We are surrounded by miracles created in the private sector, particularly in the digital universe, and yet we don’t appreciate them enough. Meanwhile, the public sector is systematically wrecking the physical world in sneaky and petty ways that really do matter.
When two individuals — who are adept thinkers, writers, speakers, researchers and philosophers — come together for a melding of minds, the result is almost always synergistic beyond what you might expect; in a way that can make us see the world from a fresh perspective.
Adam Kokesh and Alex Jones are two great and influential men of our time, inspiring a spirit of freedom and individualism in everyone who will give their message a chance. Every day they put themselves out there to speak of what they feel is the truth, despite being seen as politically incorrect by the vast majority of loud voices in our society such as the government, media and major political parties.
Today I had the good fortune of stumbling across a fantastic discussion, between Alex Jones and Adam Kokesh, on a set of topics which really crystallized for me what will be the lasting challenges for the post-millennial generations. These challenges include: the challenge of recognizing the violence inherent in statism, overcoming statism and establishing a truly free society with free markets and individual liberties.
