Desire

Where does the will come from? Can you really tell me you believe it is "simply a response of stimuli." At what point does one admit that consciousness is real. That perception and awareness are what frame everything we "know", and any memories we have are unique. We share a world with one another that we will never see in the same manner, and yet we work together. When something good is possible, why deny its application? Why, when a person's will seems to be the greatest reflection of who he or she is, do we try to question it's primacy and equality? Why must one man dictate to others things of which he has no experience of applying? You cannot understand a woman or man with numbers. Economics has shown the will to be too unpredictable to model, but what they are unwilling to admit, is some things are impossible to quantify. Actions may correlate with them, but immeasurables are what make us human. So let's embrace our individuality, let's encourage others to do the same, and let us show the world how when we choose to love each other and respect each other, we can provide for each other far better than any edict or social structure can mandate. We can thrive together. It's a team sport, take care of each other. You'll be amazed at how great the world around you can become.

One with the One

I am.
May I mind the serenity of being.
Help me embrace the divinity of existence.
This thread of being weaves everything together with potential to create, change, and continue,
it's endless.I rejoice in awe.
May I more freely share it. 
Help me to remember that wonder is just a word.
There is nothing I can write to describe the feeling,
its experience is beyond language.I convict myself with awareness.
May I have the strength to toe the line.
Help me to be humble but resolute.
That joy felt in honoring others brings honor to myself,
it's all an honor to you.I dissolve in your presence.
May I find my truest form within you.
Help me to accept my fears and my desires.
The unknown holds the greatest treasures,
it's waiting to be found.I empty myself.
May I be further filled.
Help me to grow as I overflow.
Thy will is more than I will ever know,
it's what it will be.

A Democratic Pursuit of Anarchy

Addressing the juxtaposition of majoritarianism and horizontalism as natures of democracy, I think they are both accurate and both end up describing what's wrong with democracy as practiced. That is, systems only democratic in their vote-based system of government. Elections feel fair to us in a very simplistic way. There's nothing essentially just about making decisions about how people live by vote other than the one vote per person part of it. If we vote on how you ought to wear your hair, it doesn't change the fact that it's an intrusion (or invasion to use Benjamin Tucker's terminology). In Anarchy, State, and Utopia, Nozick creates an interesting analogy for society with a joint-stock company where we all own a share in one another that forces the reader to face what it means to vote on the decisions that shape someone else's life. Democracy, when indicating "shared power" exerted directly without State interference, is synonymous with anarchism.…

Why negative interest rates are a good idea.

Interest rates are never a "trivial issue". But first, let me stat that I don't trust the idea of government. It's the system of power that has outlived its feudal birth. Historical "democracies", including our own, built their societies on authority asserted by violence in the form of land expropriation, tribute, and slavery. Government provides violence to enforce injustice at the tip of the pen and the sword. The unjust assertion of absolute authority over any geographical area is how the concept of property, something that is "one's own", has been applied to the Earth. Why would I want to grant this system of telling people what to do and who they have to pay to be allowed in society a money monopoly? I support a negative interest rate policy because credit is the just basis of value in a money, not the right to demand it as rent. The lower the interest rate, the easier it is for people to pay back their loans, increasing the likelihood o…
