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.

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

Free Land, or the ideal mean for a Location Value funded Citizen's Dividend

If we want to liberate ourselves from one another, we can buy into the idea that we can more effectively share this planet. We can do so for the purposes of maximizing human autonomy and the experience of equal liberty for every citizen of the Earth, through each of their local communities. We have the means today to voluntarily buy into a federation of neighborhood scale land trusts with a global reach. Existentially, our birthrights are the greatest lottery of all of history. We can make that a game with winning odds for everyone. The desire to be free, to choose to live how we each wish to live, is strongly felt within each of us. But those who experience it most, unfortunately, value it least. They become so accustomed to protecting or jealously expanding their own experience of it that they have created a system of enforcing their own privileges at the cost of others. I believe all people ought to choose whosoever's service they wish to enter, but I do not believe any of

The threat of Trump's Wolf PACT

Trump is sicking his DHS Wolf PACT upon cities governed by his political opponents. I believe it, but I wish it weren't true. The lack of accountability this police force has to local communities is precisely backwards to a result that could be expected to correct the injustices of modern policing. Police need to be more accountable to their communities, if there are going to be police at all. Instead, Trump's response has been to form a paramilitary force, dressed in camoflauge akin to our nation's military, to ensure domestic tranquility as he defines it. The refusal of the Republican's to be honest with themselves about the nature of this threat is an act of sheer politically charged, willful blindness. Trump is their man. He does little wrong. He would never act in a way inconsistent with being an American. But he is creating the very creature most likely to wield the power to rob them of their most prized freedoms. They would be wise to take note of Biden's tak
