Government is the illusion of authority, but more importantly government is mind control. Naturally, since if you want people to believe in this fictitious thing called ‘authority’ you first have to mold the minds of the collective to accept this false ideology. This is what government is. It’s the illusion of some “official” group of people out there who get to tell everybody else what to do and how to do it. The truth is there is no such thing as authority, and government is an illusion that we’ve imposed upon ourselves from the irrational thinking of a controlled mind.
It’s generally agreed that the power of government ultimately comes from the people. Governments seem to have rights that individuals do not. And it’s agreed that it is these individuals that make up government. It doesn’t take much critical thinking to realize that individuals are granting power that they don’t possess to a group of other individuals who call themselves ‘government’. One cannot delegate a right that they do not possess individually. This is one of the fundamental reasons why government is completely and utterly fallacious.
Jan interviews these politicians and asks them a series of questions:
Is all legitimate governmental power derived from the people? They all unfailingly answer Yes.
Do individual citizens have the right to initiate force against others who have not initiated or threatened to initiate force against them? Sometimes it takes them a second but they always answer, No.
If they don’t have the right to initiate force against others, could they have properly delegated that right to the government? In this interview Bernie finally answers, “Well, I guess they have.”
Can you properly delegate a right that you do not have? The response is usually, “Get the hell out of my office!”
Jan gets these politicians to admit to their own contradictions in their statist philosophy. Often times they get so infuriated by their own cognitive dissonance they storm out of the interview. In one interview the guy actually stole Jan’s tape , probably because they were so embarrassed for admitting their own logical fallacies.
Can you delegate a right that you do not have yourself individually? No, of course not. That doesn’t make any sense at all. And neither does ‘govern-ment’, or as we’ll learn, ‘mind-control’.
Nobody has the right to throw stones at babies. But if enough people get together and label themselves “government”, then those people now magically have the right to throw stones at babies? Or say, execute another human being, which is something they actually do do. Whoops I said do-do, what an appropriate pun.
Moving on, if enough people who do not have the right to throw stones at babies get together as a collective and give themselves a fancy name, do they then have the right to throw stones at babies? I don’t think so. This is what government is and you have to be mind controlled to beLieve in it.
Governments also force us to pay ‘taxes’ which are forced upon us with the threat of violence. It is arguable whether there is an actual law that makes us pay our taxes. I don’t think there is, but either way I’m not going to concern myself with man’s laws when I know that Natural Law is all there is. If you do decide to pay your taxes, just know that you’re funding terrorism, at least in the U.S. For if you do, you are just another order follower, perpetrating harm against others.
I like to think I’m a good person and wouldn’t want to participate in that myself personally. I now understand how the system works. Most do not, so I would never want to blame the people for the sick system they find themselves in. It’s not your fault. But if you participate in our corrupt socio economic system, you’re just making it worse.
Authority doesn’t really exist. It’s all in our heads. What does exist is Natural Law, or the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Natural law is a philosophy that certain rights or values are inherent by virtue of human nature, and universally cognizable through human reason.
The United States Constitution does not grant us rights. We possess these rights the moment we are popped out of our mothers’ vagina. They are inherent to us as humans. We don’t need an authority figure to tell us what rights we have as human beings.
It is easy to figure out what rights we have by using apophatic inquiry . In other words by asking what rights we do NOT have first. We don’t have the right to cause harm to others.
As long as we are not violating the golden rule, we’re good. You don’t have to worry about breaking man’s rules since you know you are a good person and wouldn’t want to cause harm to others. Sometimes it’s required to break man’s laws in order to follow natural law, and continue to not harm others. Personally, I think we are born with the knowledge of what is right and what is wrong. We learn to do wrong to others from our sick society.
“Nothing in this world, nothing, works the way you think it does. There’s always more to the story. Banks do not loan money, governments are not empowered to protect you, the police department is not there to serve you, institutions of higher learning, colleges and educational institutes, are not there to educate you. The entire superstructure of civilization in the Western world is a combination of brilliantly put together and well-planned schemes to direct the minds of the people in such a way as to serve their masters.”
Mark Passio has gone to great lengths to make this information easily digestible. We have him to thank for many of these infographics. His lectures on youtube are also very educational.
Larken Rose is an author that delves deep into this heretical subject of self governance and the illusion of authority.
Government is mind control. No, really that’s what it literally etymologically translates to. Govern comes from the Latin verb gubernare: “to control,” or “to rule with authority.” Ment translates to “mind”.
The etymology of the word ‘government’ has been well established with GOVERN meaning to ‘control or steer’ and MENT derived from Latin meaning ‘mind.’ Therefore, a direct etymological deconstruction of the word GOVERNMENT yields us the term ‘mind control.’ It is thus no fault of reason or logic to deem the ENTIRETY of government to be, by very definition, a psy-ops or PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATION. There is only ONE true authoritative force that man must abide by and that is found within the natural forces that govern this world. This absolute truth has been no secret to countless native and aboriginal tribes across this sacred Earth. Man has erringly created an organized pseudo-authority, has granted them powers to enforce laws imagined and manifested out of thin air, and allows this organization to engage in the highest acts of violence to enforce these contrived, unnatural laws. These laws exist NOWHERE within the wind that blows, the trees that stretch up to the heavens, the animals that roam, the rivers that meander and the mountains that tower above. Man cannot create laws that do not exist wthin the natural order. This power he dreams up and by dreaming it up has created a nightmare in his waking world. When man creates false laws he does the first injustice to himself and his world by breaking the laws of the Great Spirit.
“Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a Citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the Citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”
Statism is the belief that people need some authority, government, or state to control every aspect of their lives. Statists use violence and coercion to achieve their nefarious objectives.
When there is state there can be no freedom, but when there is freedom there will be no state. -Vladimir Lenin [Russian Jewish Communist who killed tens of millions of innocent people]
If you need violence to enforce your ideas, your ideas are worthless. -unknown
Anarchy (Voluntaryism ) is the idea that people are smart enough to take care of themselves. Anarchy means ‘without rulers’, not ‘without rules’. If people truly understood what it means to be an anarchist, to reject violence and live life peacefully, they would never go back to their controlled and oppressed statist lives.
A very common refrain among statists is that, if we didn’t have “government” around to protect us, some OTHER gang of armed thugs might spring up and boss us around and take our stuff! First of all, how funny is it that their worst case scenario is that anarchy might lead to… having “government” again? “We can’t do away with ‘X’ because we might end up with ‘X’!” …Um, okay… But statists who make such dire warnings also always miss the hugely important factor which is the mentality and perceptions of the VICTIMS of extortion. Right now, millions of people are PROUD to be forcibly subjugated and robbed. They call it being a “law-abiding taxpayer.” ..Statists also completely misunderstand basic economics. To maintain a gang of thousands of thieving mercenaries you need a really big, steady stream of loot. Right now “government” gets that by the VICTIMS proudly robbing THEMSELVES. Not only do tens of millions of people fill out stupid, complicated forms and send in money, without anyone directly threatening them, but most EMPLOYERS cooperate in the robbery of all the people who work for them. Because gee, it’s “the law”! “And we can’t go against the LAW, Dorothy!” (Auntie Emm was a freaking collaborator!) Again, there is ONE gang capable of subjugating and perpetually robbing the American people, and it is the gang already doing it. And it can do it only because it has duped its victims into imagining legitimacy to the theft, into imagining its extortionistic demands to be “taxes,” and into imagining that NOT being robbed is a “crime.” How ironic that millions of devout statists vehemently DEMAND to have the ONLY gang which could pull off such a robbery (“government”), out of fear that some OTHER gang–which would never be able to pull it off in a million years–might do the same thing. Such is the lunacy inherent in statism. –Larken Rose
