Red Pill

Thanks very much for posting this. Watching this video has been like taking a very powerful red pill. Life changing for me on many, many levels. I have spent quite some time over at Stefan Molyneux YouTube channel and website. His audio books are excellent, especially "The Handbook of Human Ownership - A Manual for New Tax Farmers". http://www.freedomainradio.com/FreeBooks.aspx#EA

It certainly has me yearning for more.

Again, thanks!

It's too bad many people won't watch

if they are Christian and are offended by the initial allusions to evolution.
No matter how persuasive the rest is, they will simply turn it off after the first 30 seconds.

How about truth?

What's too bad is that so few people seek after truth - spiritual truth, political truth, health truth, historical truth, etc.

Molyneux is peddling lies - evolution is only part of it.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

If really you think evolution's a "lie"

I'm inclined to spend little time or effort listening to anything you have to say

"OK"

.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

A fool

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." Molyneux is a fool.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

An existential rant...

with no solution, devoid of truth, God of our Founders, mankind's personal responsibility, the rule of higher law than often erring man, the need for a republican form of government which also requires the rule of law... yes, existential libertarianism at it's finest.

Also, the reason why such a party goes exactly nowhere but distracts a few into thinking it has solutions.

Also, the reason why Libertarianism as a party is but a few dollars short of ever existing as a party, and also a few billion dollars away from becoming the next logical tyrant to replace the currant tyrant.

In contrast, Dr. Paul speaks and writes only solutions. Simple, common sense, freedom based, under the rule of law, recognizing our duty before God and our fellow man.

Strom Thurmond was Senator till he was what.... 109 years young?! (99).

Ron Paul 2012... then Ron Paul 2016!

To See The Farm Is To Leave It

I wish more people (even here) would understand what that means. "The state" or the tyrants are not in Washington DC. They are not at your state capital. They are not on the TV. They are the every day people who surround you. They are the people who attack you for simply pointing out things like you own your own body. They are your own neighbors who believe its ok to steal your money (thus your time/life, because it took a portion of your life to earn that money) for what they perceive is the moral high ground. They are the tyrants. Stop going on whimsical wild goose chases looking for Bilderberg attendees and NWO agents. Start looking at your own neighbors!

Re: To See the Farm is to Leave It

I think you missed the whole point. Yes, the tyrants are all around us. But we too are tyrants. The harsh truth is ending the tyrany starts by looking in the mirror and by being honest to yourself.

Well put...

"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."
-Robert Green Ingersoll

Here's how it was done.

Of course, it's the Money Interests that moved us from Chattel Property to Capitol Property...

Congressman Charles a Lindbergh Sr - Banking & Currency and the Money Trust (1913)

Yes, these money lenders began early to acquire control. They have never let it go. They started in Europe long, long ago, and just as soon as there was anything doing over here they were on hand. Alexander Hamilton was one of their supporters. I shall not review his acts, but shall refer to a few later things emanating directly from the banks. The English money lenders have co-operated with those of our country, and in 1862 an agent, quietly and under a sort of confidential seal, distributed among the aristocrats and the wealthy class a circular. It was called the Hazard Circular and related in a way to the Civil War. It read:

“Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and all chattel slavery abolished. This I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers while the European plan, led on by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. The great debt that capitalists will see to it is made out of the war, must be used as a means to control the volume of money. To accomplish this the bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now waiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to make this recommendation to Congress. It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that. But we can control the bonds and through them the bank issues.”

This shows how mercenary these usurers are. Rather than assume the care of the slaves, they would control labor with the use of capital. It necessarily followed that when the laborer ceased to be of service because of sickness or old age, he would be of no concern to capital. He could either get well or die without the capitalists being obliged to provide medical attention or bury the dead. Such was the interest that capital had in the result of the Civil War. The people of this country poured out both their treasure and their blood to establish the political and industrial independence of humanity, and the mercenary capitalists turned a trick of finance and converted the enormous sacrifice made by the people during that struggle into a victory for capital, in order that they might enforce upon humanity the industrial slavery that the trustspreferred rather than the chattel slavery which then existed in the Southern States.

The False Profit

Yes, SM, sounds good. That is not hard to do when you have a perverse and polluted system. History is replete with "lets do this" when societies are being dealt with by tyrannies. Anything sounds good next to large scale suppression. He makes some extremely false statements in the beginning of his video. 'Like all animals man wants to dominate resources' I submit that all animals are not that way. Then he says alone among the animals man is afraid of death, which is patently false. Yes you can threaten man with death and not the animal because the animal can't duplicate the threat due to language.

He understands that man has within him the desire and ability to control and farm if you will his fellows. Bastiat refers to this as man will live at the expense of his fellows if that it is easier to do so than to live at the expense of his own labor. This is within us, but if you follow Stephbot he will lead you to the false belief that man will voluntarily always co-operate with his fellows, thus no need for government. If we had a society with out government man would quickly create one to deal with those who violate others. Why do such governments end up doing the thing they were created to stop? Because the people stop being responsible for their creation.

Why do governments end up....

mblibertarian7 asks:
Why do such governments end up doing the thing they were created to stop?
Because "governments" are made of mankind, who at the core is corrupted. Selfish. There is only One, who can break this stronghold & free us, The Prince of Peace, who will strike down the rebellious one day with the breath of his mouth! : )

Speak for yourself

You might need to convince yourself that there are brownies in the sky waiting for you after you die in order to do the right thing, but don't assume that's the case for everyone.

You're right, you can never be a completely good person when you've abdicated all responsibility over yourself and your actions from square one. If you're lucky, you'll see Christ after death. Regardless, it's your show. Save yourself. Christ wouldn't want you to be a good person only by proxy of his goodness. That sort of person sounds more like a wretch who sins on saturday knowing he can repent on sunday.

no such thing as no government

The anti-state argument does not imply no government, it implies government based on property rights, rather than on any mystical "social contract" theory. People can create rules based on owned territories, and use those territories together based on contractual agreements. There would be plenty of government in a world without a massive mass-murdering central state run by pedophiles. The governments would arise from rational, voluntary agreements, the same way every productive, useful thing you do in your life is achieved. If it is desirable to have a safe, sanitary place to live, with useful, practical rules physically enforced by security agents, the market would offer exactly that, in abundance.

You make th point with your final sentence. Most governments end up corrupt because they are unaccountable. In a world in which government was a service offered on the open market, accountability would be built in. If one person or group offered a living situation where people were mistreated in any way, other capitalists would simply offer a better, more secure living situation in another territory...the substandard government would lose customers, and therefore resources, and would fail and go away. All you need for this to happen is to lose the mindset that says one group must have a monopoly on initiating force.

I find it interesting that

he hit the nail on the head with the fact that fear of death is what makes us slaves yet never mentions the number one purveyor of that fear or the number one answer for us to release that fear.

Who is it that gains the most from fear of death?
Who is it that makes fear of death of no effect?

Well, who is it?

The suspense is killing me!

The Premise is KEY. Recommended viewing -

Sure there are a couple of unpleasant moments in the video, but we've seen much worse at the DP. The message is important; I highly recommend you see this... disregard what you may, but take note of where it puts in pieces you may not have seen before.

FINALLY BE FREE = PERMACULTURE

you have to buy land zoned agriculture right now and start sustaining your family with permaculture.

the land grab is coming soon and it will be in the guise of sustainability.... it will start with QE3 and end with HUD's new program for sustainability.. they want to design us into their new global settlement...they do not want us to design our own

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

If you have the stones..

Stefan has about 2000 podcasts that will rock your world. If you want to take the red pill, select about 50 out of the first 500 and your entire world view will change. Remember, all he is offering is the truth.

Unfortunately, as long as there is 51% dependent cows, all the cows are doomed to eternal enslavement.

The question is

If you were truly a free society as suggested in the vid, how can you protect such freedom from others who want to enslave you if the definition of free society equates to having no state (community orgnaization for the greater good)?
