Duty

Considering the state of affairs with the surveillance state and the infringements on the freedoms of ourselves and our fellow human beings all over the world, perhaps it is our responsibility to wage a war in the name of our freedoms, upon the powers that would infringe upon them.

When we think about the people that we love, we must consider how we would want the rest of the world to treat them. We would not want them to be belligerent to them. We would not want them to force them to fit in. We would want them to respect their privacy.

Why then, do we allow organizations to exist that encroach upon them?

Think about the oppressed people around the world. Think about the oppressive governments they are forced to live under. Think about the people who cannot legally express themselves as they are, who cannot legally say, "It is not for you to judge this part of my life, I can tell you that I am doing nothing wrong to you, and you cannot argue with it. You cannot tell me it is wrong for me to love someone unconditionally and with consent and respect." Take it further, imagine a government that doesn't allow you to investigate theories that contradict the  their theories about the "way the world was made." And if you were to say that women deserved to be perfectly equal, allowed to pursue any lifestyle they wish, would laugh you out of their chambers. Think about a country that spend more money on their military than the entirety of the rest of the world. Why do we allow such oppressive regimes to continue?

We should no longer consent to their rule. We should no longer allow them to exist. We should take the "departments of government", corporations that oppress upon our fellow humans, and bankrupt them. We should take all of their power away because they have proven that they do not respect the rights that we have.

If a corporation's existence and security is based upon its ability to maintain secrecy in its actions that are responsible for the deaths of our fellow human beings, we should remove its sources of funding. If a corporation cannot provide us information proving that it is not oppressing others, we should boycott it and no longer support its function.

I believe that we are to defend ourselves from this oppression by means that do not necessitate the ending of human life. We should demand that those responsible for wrongful deaths be held accountable to the victims of those deaths.

As men and women that desire justice for all of those around us, we should take action to inform the public of these wrongings so that they may be held responsible for their transgressions. Do not expect the consent of those responsible. Justice cannot always get unanimous consent, but a quorum can always be found among interested, informed parties, particularly independent and non-aggressive ones. Let us begin a revolution of the mind, via the freedom of information.

If you have access to information incriminating those with authority above you, release it to the public. There are means to do so. You can do it entirely anonymously. Just release it. Put the burden of proof on those who are guilty to show that it is not true. We have a right to demand transparency from organizations. We should hold people accountable for their actions. That's called justice.

I ask that you do so with grace. Vengeance is not justice. Consult those who care about you about the proper action to take. I pray you can achieve this task of justice safely. A peaceful revolution is possible. Bloodshed can be avoided and we can improve ourselves as a species. We can learn to love our enemies. We will not allow them to permanently injure our loved ones, but remember that we will be responsible to posterity for our choice of action. We should not seek justice through a body count. We should seek it with reform. We should seek it without violence. We should seek it through open discussion. It is possible, when the truth is revealed, justice can soon follow. We must all seek justice and peace if we are ever to find them.

May we seek to always improve ourselves.

An Unapologetic Paraphrasing of Bastiat's Apology for Landed Property

This is my admittedly snarky paraphrasing of Bastiat's rambling apology on Landed Property in his Economic Harmonies . I think by translating the verbiage into modern terms, which I couldn't help but do so with a pinch of sarcasm, it becomes clear he didn't prove much of anything at all. Instead, a reader feels underwhelmed by its points and overwhelmed by the verbosity of his rather banal parables. Even though he shows what actually causes land to increase in value when he describes the improvements of a city/town growing around land, he insists that all the gained value obtained by landlords by that mechanism is actually just the fruits of their past labors, ignoring his own supposition that value comes from the service provided, in the case of Land, by a better site to occupy, not labor. If it pleases you, enjoy the following: The economists of all sorts say that landlord's charge rent for value they did not create. Most say it is unjust, but some begrudgingly ad

Our Dancing Universe: the Word and the Circle of Light.

The Word lets light and begets all things. I have composed the following in awe of the beauty and balance of our cosmos. It is based off of concepts connected by three pieces of scientific literature. The summary of each is as follows: 1. "A unifying theory of dark energy and dark matter: Negative masses and matter creation within a modified ΛCDM framework" describes how the existence of a negative mass fluid would result in the orientation and behavior of the cosmos as we observe it, removing the need for the hypothetical notions of dark matter and dark energy to describe the shapes of galaxies and the observed expansion of space-time. 2. "Negative-Mass Hydrodynamics in a Spin-Orbit–Coupled Bose-Einstein Condensate" describes how when matter gets extremely cold, approximately absolute zero, atoms condense into a collective fluid that behaves as if it has negative mass. 3. "On the origin of gravity and the laws of Newton" describes how gravity itself i

Irresponsibility

What is it? You know. It holds you back, and it's okay that it is alluring. You need to do it sometimes to remember that you  don't want to do it. Accept it. Forgive it. Face it. Fix it. You don't have to be perfect. But you can always they to learn to be more perfect. Your anxiety is telling you things. Important interpretations of your surroundings. Your choices are yours to make. And yours to live with so adapt accordingly. Be creative with your choices and you will benefit as you learn to do what is best.
