government is nothing more than words on paper, written by liars and thieves

my family has a story, i bet yours does too, but it probably doesn't agree with the official history. my family's story turns history on its ear. everything they taught us in school is upside down and backwards. we can start in jamestown, since i know the paper trail goes at least that far back, but the story goes back much, much farther.

i pay taxes on a small piece of land that has been in my family since before white men came to north america. i'm still not sure why, or how this makes any sense. there was a settler at jamestown virginia who fell in love with and married a native woman. this isn't surprising, considering there weren't any other women around, only men and boys were allowed onboard seagoing vessels. ship captains were mighty superstitious about that. there's monsters in those waters, and women bleed. you don't want your little wooden boat smelling of blood, do you? oh no. well, anyway, this settler's wife, her family grew tobacco. he was making himself quite a little bundle selling the indian tobacco to the other settlers. and well, there was a dispute over the price he was charging them. so they locked him up in the boat there, to await trial. somebody in the family has his diaries. i've seen a photocopy of some of the pages. he mostly wrote about his wife, how beautiful she was, how intelligent she was, how fast she was learning to read and write english, what books they were reading. he asked john smith to bring back more books, when he returned from england with more supplies. he did not take the charges against him very seriously. they hung him without a trial, and brutalized his wife, left her for dead on the boat used as her husband's prison, adrift at sea. this is the story i was told. this is how government works. this is what was done to all of us, not just the native americans, but your ancestors, as well. she survived (which is more than you can say for most of the men at jamestown), and gave birth to twins...

in 1714 "Governor Spotswood appointed the Reverend Charles Griffin as schoolmaster to educate and christianize the Indian children in the first Christian Indian School in Virginia."

we were "christianized" and made to be ashamed. the spirits of our ancestors, who are here to help guide us and help us, we were told are suffering eternity in hell because they didn't pray to the right god.

"When I was a boy, the Sioux owned the world. The sun rose and set on their land; they sent ten thousand men to battle. Where are the warriors today? Who slew them? Where are our lands? Who owns them?"

on groupthink, or herd mentality

[groupthink] involves believing that the members of your group are superior than people who are not in your group. (to say that some are “higher evolved” or “spiritually enlightened” is a prime example of this) groupthink also involves mind-control …. oh, but nobody wants to talk about that subject. i got some blogs i wrote, some articles i copied, too… mob enforcement of the rules. it involves giving away your freedom to act and think as you see fit in order to belong to the group. and that is my main problem, being an anarchist and all.


forming groups does not unify us, it divides us (us being all of humanity)! those who seek unity and world peace usually do so by forming some group or organization, and that act of separating themselves from others goes counter to the original intent of the group! but it feels good to be part of something, doesn't it? we don't want to be told how we are being manipulated and controlled, oh no, it's my choice, i'm doing the “right” thing, i care… yeah well, people need to start thinking about how the structure of our society harms humanity, rather than just taking it for granted that's how it is and how it should be and always will be.


seemingly everyone does it to some extent, everyone who justifies their beliefs with “the Bible says” … and you know good and well that is no different than “my teacher/guru says” … proselytizing is all the same religious indoctrination through fear of the consequences, regardless the outward appearance…. the worst are the ones who claim they don't do it, who think their religion is the ONE TRUTH that applies equally to all people, thus making it okay, this sort of religious exclusivism, it's even written into their rules (and they call it “helping” when they try to convert you to their beliefs)…


religion serves to prevent us from finding truth, within. sure, they say things to the contrary, they always do, them that tell lies. and the reason they tell those lies is because they are too afraid to find their own subjective truth, they feel that the objective Law that rules their lives should rule everyone's life. it's a lack of respect, mostly for themselves, they doubt their own ability to find their own truth. and it illustrates a profound lack of respect towards anyone and everyone who does not share their religious beliefs, to have this desire to convert, to preach their wisdom to others, thinking their subjective truth applies objectively to others.

it's about a lack of respect. gotta say it again, i suppose. because when you do find your own inner truth, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it. you just KNOW. and knowing that your truth is not dependent upon what anyone else holds to be true, you gain respect for those who have found their own personal truth. this outrageous attempt to share your wisdom with others, to expect them to believe the things that are true for you, is symptom of a lack of connection to what is true. it's an ego thing.


communication is not about reaching a consensus and calling it “truth”
communication is about trying to find your own words to describe your own experience, so that you may share it with others. not to convert them to the truth of what you know, but to learn more about the things you don't know. <3

To convert (a person) from one belief, doctrine, cause, or faith to another.


a method for systematically changing attitudes or altering beliefs

it's called euphemism… get a grip.
not only that, but brainwashing is when you attempt to change an adult from one beleif system to another. when it is done to children we call it “education”

it happens all the time, everywhere, people don't just lie to others, they lie to themselves. pretend that what they do is okay because everyone does it, or pretend they aren't doing what everyone else is doing, or justify them doing it, because it's different when we do it, we are the good people and they're the bad ones.

the original meaning of the word “anarchy” meant freedom. so why is it that myspace blocks any images with that word in the filename? it violates their terms of use, apparently they think it is “violent and offensive material”
why is freedom not allowed?

you crazy, bitch!

sanity simply means to act in accordance with what the majority of people consider to be socially-acceptable behavior. it's the measuring stick that says who is better at following other people's rules. to be labelled "insane" is the threat, the punishment, that keeps meek people in line, acting right, from fear of being a social misfit and outcast from the group.

to think or not to think

to be given "beliefs" is to be either:

indoctrinated (what is done to children who have not established their own personal belief system)
brainwashed (when the same thing is done to adults who already have established beliefs)

this is why the modern education system fails. it is designed to prevent students from learning. our "education" is an attempt to prevent thought from happening. all information is pre-digested and downloaded, then regurgitated at will (such as when they are filling in little circles on those tests).

is this how you learn, how you think? are those thoughts your own, or are they straight from someone else, some authority (the Bible says... or as they say nowadays, my guru said...) instead of from that thinking part within you? i learn through experience, through my subjective perceptions of such personal experiences. anyone can memorize the times tables, but in order to multiply you must know how it works.

we are not machines, though we can choose to operate as such. that is our choice. to think or not to think. it's up to you. the abusive authority, the belief in groupthink, would threaten you with horrible consequences should you choose to think for yourself, but to allow the group or an authority to think for you is always your decision.
