Transparent and Authentic AF!
How did you become interested in Self-Determination?
You invited me to the group, then asked me to look at a website that the link given took me to some admin portal only though, and never pushed it further though.
Just been a member of this group since my time is occupied with other things, sometimes offline.
What kind of Advocate do you identify as?
If I were to have a collective to identify with more so than others, I guess it’s the police accountability advocate followed by what I guess they are called is “truthers” as the collective of this type of activist, then thirdly libertarianism, so forth.
I believe in individualism very greatly, the same individualist concepts applied in all 3 above.
What would you like to see happen? What is your vision for your country and the world? What would I reasonably like to see happen, what would I desire to happen without limits, and what is my goal to make happen in this world are all completely different answers.
(Reasonably) I would like to see us as a country take control again of our government again and lead the world as an influence, not a force. The dependency mindset is from a very trained mindset with both oppression and terrorism to those that oppose within most eastern and southern cultures.
Most Americans haven’t read their Declaration of Independence, let alone can repeat their Bill of (INALIENABLE) Rights. These are the 10 basic ideas of God-given/born-with rights to human life.
Who is so foolish to be so WILLFULLY Ignorant of their own rights and why they have them? The oppressed within state education curriculum rather than the local demands curriculum as it once was supporting parents rights over the state’s oxymoron of rights as a corporate entity as they make the excuse to call themselves here.
The moment we see that we need demand for independence again, we will see an uprising in limitations in demand across the spectrum. When the Government doesn’t meet this demand amongst the people, people assume they will use the powers they have against the people rather than supply limited government, including in the Declaration of Independence’s worst-case assumption giving us a right of revolution.
Instead of letting the tree of liberty rot, we need it to ripen. We can all reasonably see this happen with plenty of civil options to force the government’s hand once we have over 3.5% of the population demanding independence and ripple effecting this message to greater united lengths again.
Anyone that assumes government power is anything’s greater than their efficiency is oppressed. If anything, the government is infamously known to arm the enemy. Stories I hear from vets wasn’t a psyop with the enemy, it was laziness and cutting corners to save time within their spending budgets.
Personally, I support the constitutional republic as the lesser evil of government including anarchy. Returning us to a minimal state is completely reasonable to civilly obtain in our lifetime again with the right members being elected to fill this demand.
The worries of vote integrity have been challenged since Bush in 01 won with machines that gave out incorrect readings without accountability to my knowledge alone.
We want more accountability in these elections. We need to practice what we preach and create a third-party nonprofit that can hold integrity to the voting systems.
If that’s getting donations to massively call centers merely to request who they are voting to hold accountability to the election results rather than being used for any person’s analytics could be a true source of evidence.
A private business will care more about the integrity of its result than a department. Double names, dead names, etc would be more easily checked than even our cheap voting system we use.
We have so many ways to help the integrity of our systems besides running our mouth. People act like they rather complain than hold such integrity to these systems at times sadly, it’s nothing new.
(My Way) If I had my way, I would restore the constitutional republic and have a system of election based on who would serve rather than election via democracy.
I would offer voluntary taxation to supply and demand governments temporary programs that never seem to stay temporary. The same way you file a W-2 would be how we know to collect for let’s say Roads, USPS, SSI, Conservation Efforts, etc that people often support funding.
I would end the War on Drugs which has caused more persecution from racism via collective profile, lack of accountability, etc. than any other thing in recent history within America.
I would keep the courts and restore peace by killing police as law enforcement off for peacekeepers. We need more towns like Andy Griffith, not Chicago 911.
The only thing stopping us is the government acting like slave keepers holding the fields down in enforcement. Like George Washington and MLK Jr, both have stated, “if a law is unjust, you are more than obligated to break it.”
You can’t have a fair trial when the trial is based on participating in the criminal act rather than justice in the individual’s situation again.
(My Goal) What I want to see happen in my lifetime that I can try to influence is the local area around me. Currently, I don’t know if this is my final settlement or not locally in WV as with how gov acts, but that’s everywhere.
My goal would be to change and influence what I can locally to create a world better than what I left it. To me, that means a more small L Libertarians sense. No one knows what’s best for you than you.
If that means I run for sheriff to run my mouth only to plant the seeds, so be it. If that means getting out there and being mocked, so be it. Not everyone has learned how to handle this message of liberty in the age of security, but the best argument is to the one that questions everything.
He or she will have tough times for many others. The simplicity and honor of the message to me is the most important part of being undisputable. Did Jesus need to break your ears with his parables?
Or did he shorten things into metaphors that made sense? This is why I enjoy cool trends like Behrman’s TaxationIsTheft, cause without consent it is regardless of how we joke or justify its existence.
Like the old proverb, “they can try to bury us, but they did not know we were seeds.” I personally like to work more behind the scene than run for office or anything, but when we have no one else willing to and you know about this demand, I feel we are more than obligated to do this when we can if we want to see the change in the world that we claim we want to see.
In my eyes, it’s that any and all liberty we hand over we might as well expect to be a slave, as HL Mencken regularly used to point out back in the 1900s and as I see it no different today.
How do you see these changes occurring?
How is the easiest part once we have created the demand. The demand for individualism is the goal here; to ripen the tree of liberty again. That takes blood, sweat, and tears (many aren’t willing to break) to do.
Those that are are creating that ripple that has finally reached youth as much as the other sides have. This hits them, as Vermin Supreme points out, where children are naturally rebellious.
This ripple effect reached these stubborn youth better than any authoritarian message ever will. Why? Cause it connects the dots their authoritarian parenting parents never did.
You can’t have blind obedience and expect loyalty from rebellion. Morals teach what we need to know. Morals in the individualist message show how to be moral rather than obedient so you are never lost for loyalty in the same light.
Most worry about the infighting of self-proclaimed Individuals, but they haven’t seen the NewGen Consoles on an FPS lobby like COD or Destiny, etc. Some of the freest talking and malicious speech you could ever hear will be spoken there on all sides.
The true free world will sound scary, but really it’d just be everyone expressing themselves freely again. The NPC professionalism lifestyle has gone too far into private people’s lives.
All of this is reachable by influences like such above and a proper message being the downfall of government by creating a ruthless demand for minimal Government like no other.
The true gamble will be, would they use the powers they have to keep the powers they have from preventing the people from demanding liberty again.
If so, what then and why is that talk so censored within the 2A mainstream culture when preventing foreign and domestic terrorism by definition is the 2A’s purpose.
Terrorism is intimidating people and seek of a political aim. If terrorism by definition doesn’t define our modern idea for our justice system from the police to how the feds treat Snowden, I don’t know what does.
We need to expel these ideas in my honest opinion. When we do we succeed.
What can Self-Determination Advocates do to help?
Not sure what this group could do to help with this activism style advocacy besides take awareness of these ideas of demands in indivisible natures. I don’t follow the group like I do some I source often for my activism but figured I’d take the time to answer these questions.
