Daily Paul Jubilee

Details to come.

What would you like to see
In a Daily Paul Jubilee?

- - -

The Jubilee (Hebrew yovel יובל) year is the year at the end of seven cycles of shmita (Sabbatical years), and according to Biblical regulations had a special impact on the ownership and management of land in the Land of Israel.

Jubilee deals largely with land, property, and property rights. According to Leviticus, slaves and prisoners would be freed, debts would be forgiven and the mercies of God would be particularly manifest. Leviticus 25:8-13 states:

"And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession."

Well, that's what The Book says.

Rest, Forgiveness, Return

It's quite possible that the DP and Michael need a Jubilee. Maybe give the site a break for a week. a month. whatever. Sabbath and Jubilee are inextricably linked.

in this day and time that is unconscionable -- with so much rushing, putting things on hold seems insane. All momentum must be kept and increased... forever!

Guess what, if the DP took a nap for a month, I'd use the time to do something productive, and I'd be happy to see it again when it returned from vacation. Maybe we can put it on archive, as Michael has suggested elsewhere, drop the hosting to reflect that, and deal with the rest of the money issues on a rested mind and clear spirit.

Whatever is going on, Michael, you are largely responsible for keeping a very motley crew together. Proud to be involved with the site at all!

Jubilee for one

The essence of Jubilee is forgiveness. I am befuddled why anyone would object to that.
For my part, I am doing my best to forgive everyone for everything, in real time. We are all broken humans, we are all in need of forgiveness and usually create more need on a daily basis. It means nothing to the people I forgive most of the time. They don't really give a damn what I think of them, most of them have justified the behavior that I was hurt by and some are actually offended that I offer forgiveness for something they have justified to their own satisfaction. I don't care. It is not about them being forgiven, it is about me being forgiving.
What debt does your neighbor carry that brings you delight? How would seeing the poor and the disadvantaged being lifted out of eternal debt be a problem for anyone other than those who seek to control by means of debt slavery?
I have questions. I have still have wadded panties. I don't like the way things went down around here! But I endeavored to forgive and now have found forgiveness... shall I be content with that? Or maybe I should get all up in Nystrom's bizness about it and demand explanations and reparations...
Or maybe I will continue on my little "Jubilee for one" adventure. It seems to be rather contagious... and it is making me a much more content person.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

We are all broken

I took notes on the thoughts that blew through my head.

"Everyone on the field is playing injured."

We're all injured in one way or another, through loss, disappointment, depression, brokenheartedness, fatigue, overwhelm, sadness, separation. They are all there. We are all broken in one way or another.

That is the beginning of understanding.

Thank you for the observation.

Jubilee or Ressurection?

I remember fishy talking about a debt jubilee. It makes a lot of sense. Last year I practiced this law, jubilee. I was so anxious to get back to gardening this year. It was actually a 2 year break, the 49th sabbatical year and the jubilee, back to back. Notice the phrase "ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field." That little phrase inspired an edible wild plant research binge that I shared here on the Daily Paul.

I'm pretty sure my count is off. The jubilee could be next year for all I know, but hey, the land has to rest. And I enjoyed the time off. Sometimes I think the sabbath was made for man.

I hope you find the rest you need, Michael.


Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

I get it.

I cannot blame you for wanting to get the heck out of here and leave the daily madness behind, Mike. It won't be the same (in fact, it won't be anything!) without you.

MUST READ (or watch--youtube-) The Harbinger

The Harbinger by Johnathan Cahn. Can't believe nobody's mentioned it so far so I must. Youtube it if you'd like. Ties in 911 with ancient history (from the vow in Isaiah 9:10) so perfectly it cannot be coincidence, and it has everything to do with the Jubilee year and the Shimita(literally the falling, or letting go)which has to do with debt repudiation and financial collapse big time. Its spiritual, but also financial. Anyways well worth it. I finally read the book, the videos are great though, nothing like actually seeing the people say and do everything actually in real life on camera rather than just reading that it happened.
Warning, logically if you find the story convincing it will provide supernatural statistical proof of a omnipotent god because there is no way the two stories could have happened by chance and I read enough on the DP to know how big of a can of worms that is for everyone around here, but try to stick to the logical aspects of the parallel and it'll be a hugely beneficial topic for research and discussion.
caveat: I could nit pick a couple of things in his presentation regarding the Assyrian harbinger and open up 911 debate, but it wouldn't disprove or weaken the other harbingers so I remain fully convinced and astounded.

I vote NO

Sounds like more central planning to me.

Michael Nystrom's picture

Well of course there is central planning on the DP!

I'm the central planner!

It is not something I aspire to.

A DP Metamorphosis

where we become a private corporation/co-op of which all DPers can be a part, that works together to produce, service, teach, sell, etc. what 'we the people' want and need, to make life better and be self-supporting with residual income.


When "everyone" is responsible, no one is.

Right on in other words.

Count me out

be in a co-op with a bunch of people who can't even raise enough money to keep the site going?

DP residual income?

Sell once get paid forever sort of thing? So what could the DP sell that the consumer would be debited electronically, monthly, and the DP bank account would be credited forever?

It's the darkest just before dawn

Fishy used to talk about the Jubilee

She probably knows something.


It's not easy being god.

I'm the god of this world, and I don't really particularly want to be.

Is Fishy unbanned??? That is MY request for the jubilee. Never understood why this happened in the first place....I will happily renew my paid subscription if you do this.

thanks, Michael.

I miss both of them.

Other requests?

This is the Jubilee.

And at the end of the year, it is all over.

well then!

I had no idea legalize was even banned!

I love the unbanning spree. Why not?

Worst case, they get rebanned.

Now how do we brainwash Michael into keeping this place alive beyond 2014?

whatever happened to

AnCap Mercenary
Mark Twain


Just off the top of my head...



AnCap recently started to comment/post again. Mark Twain rarely comments/posts anymore, but sometimes on rare occassion you'll see something. I remember Celeste's name but I can't remember seeing her for quite sometime, ABBA the same.

egapele's picture

Mark Twain stops by

but doesn't comment much. He's one of my favorites too. And I think I saw where ABBA just donated.

heres a few..

see thru

(if your able)


I had thought of for unbanning but had no idea see-thru or thomas were banned. :( What could have see-thru have possibly done? Apparently I missed something...

Regarding your end of the year comment?

Been treading water all week.

Captain has announced he will abandon this ship at the end of the year, since too many people ignored, and still continue to ignore, his request for money to patch up the holes.

Party on, people, in spite of the fact that we are drowning and going down, if it makes you feel better. What a bunch of ingrates! Sheesh!
