History teaches us that humanity has endured a harsh past of servitude and submission—repeatedly ruled by self-proclaimed leaders, monarchs, kings, and other violent authoritarians.
I’m highly skeptical about what history books say beyond a few hundred years ago, although what we are taught could explain why, to this day, most people know consent matters, but still support and vote for slavery.
During a riveting discussion I had with Stefan Aarnio of Respect The Grind, we discussed the possible reasons democracy exists—and why the masses applaud it as a “just” method of governance.
Democracy is simply mob rule, with no respect for individual rights. It’s two wolves and one sheep voting on what to eat.
Minority groups have their freedom violated in various ways when they’re allegedly outnumbered in a rigged, corrupt process.
Yet, if you turn on the TV you’ll hear constant phrases like, “a threat to democracy” and “everything that makes our democracy great.”
Where does this praise for such a destructive system really come from?
As I explained on the podcast:
“A few hundred years ago, kings and queens were going around doing similar things that governments do today, saying ‘you were born here so you have to pay us a certain percentage of what you make…,’ eventually a lot of people said ‘this is crazy.’ This whole idea of kings and queens is so insane.”
So, what was once called monarchy would finally go out of style, until we found ourselves in the modern era of statist-tribal-worship, and now you tick a box every few years to elect some guy who is supposed to run the world for your “team.”
Oppression isn’t a game. Try asking someone in France or Venezuela how these systems are working out for them.
In the USSA, so many felt desperate for an alternative to the ruling elitist political class—that they fell for another scam artist to trust as their Daddy President.
Marketed as an “outsider”, the Puppet-In-Chief was closely involved with the Bush family, befriended the Clintons decades ago, and is in no way an authentic rival to the establishment.
To be fair, the same desire for radical change that brought us Donny Debt also brought us Obomber—they’re both frauds. Actors.
Stefan and I had an in-depth conversation where we explored the cycles of history, the antidote to statism, and how a stateless society can truly move forward peacefully.
Our interview covered everything from the consolidation of political power, communism, authoritarianism and collapse, to the end of the financial system.
We even discussed Stockholm syndrome, potential dystopian futures vs free market solutions, and Anarchapulco 2020.
It’s no surprise that things like natural health, entrepreneurship, the internet and cryptocurrency are threats to the powers that (should not) be.
From mandatory poisonous vaccines and constant media fear-mongering, to the Big Tech giants’ vendetta against the truth, mankind’s tendency towards enslavement can seem ever-present.
However, just as vibrant and determined is the movement to fight back—alternative social media platforms keep arising, cryptocurrencies continue to cement themselves as viable long-term assets, and Anarchapulco brings freethinkers together in paradise.
It’s time to evolve.
