What You Need to Do…Starting Yesterday

The change is going to come from you.  No government or institution will change, they profit from the old system.  Instead, you’re going to have to create a new system, one that’s separate from the existing system.  I can’t tell you what this new society is going to look like or even how to make … Continue reading

What is Government?

Everyone always talks about government and what they want out of it, but nobody seems to truly grasp what government IS.  Do we honestly know?  I think I’ve got a pretty good idea and hopefully I can walk you through it. Let’s start with what government is NOT.  We know that government isn’t a set … Continue reading

Protests Don’t Make Change

I’m glad that people are waking up and voicing their opinions, exercising their right to free speech.  However, protests don’t make change. In 1776, the Boston Tea Party didn’t change anything.  All that it did, was make a bunch of British soldiers, tax collectors, and merchants angry.  What freed the colonies was the Revolutionary War.  … Continue reading

The One Thing You Need to Know About the Federal Reserve

To the so-called “gay rights supporters”: Do you really believe that this gay marriage issue can be even remotely equated to minority rights prior to the 60’s?  Nobody is being … Continue reading

On Democracy

Why is it so hard for people to understand the nature of democracy?  People keep saying that they want direct democracy, that now it’s finally plausible thanks to the internet.  Don’t you understand what that means? First off, we do not have democracy here in America, we have a constitutional Republic.  That means that we … Continue reading

An End to Monetarism

This, I believe, is the most important societal revolution that can be made.  It is also one of the most difficult, however, with the inevitable crash of the US dollar, a new economic system will need to arise.  If this system is accepted, it will bring about the greatest, most immediate exchange of power from … Continue reading

Break Free From the System

I keep seeing people complain about not taking enough action or coming up with a plan to change the system.  If you want change, you’re going to have to start living it.  Like Gandhi said, you must be the change you wish to see in the world.  The change comes from within, from changing yourself.  … Continue reading
