Update: Considering a Pivot from VolJapan; It’s Been a Wonderful Spring of Anarchy!

At some point, if a grown adult wishes to believe in what is effectively the Santa Claus myth but with lots more violence, pedophilia, and no presents at all, they are going to, no matter what evidence they’re presented with to the contrary.

I feel like I’ve done alright in presenting the common sense philosophy of Voluntaryism since about 2015 (after becoming an anarchist in 2013), across thousands of posts, myriad videos, articles, debates and interactions, though I haven’t done it in the most organized way, some might argue. But that was always the hard part: to me it all seems part of one and the same cool thing: The beauty of this world and living free to enjoy it! Thus the posts about running, art, old hotels, crypto, legal philosophy, religion, stop-motion movies, Johnny Carson and Van Halen, etc., etc. I am laughing now because I do see how I drove my more serial-minded, more organized blogging and podcast-loving pals kinda nuts.

To cut to the point, I’ve grown tired of arguing and debating all the ins and outs to scoffers, and explaining ad nauseum even to those willing to listen.

Along the way there have been many rewarding moments! Moments where people had the same kind of lightbulb moment I did when I finally broke out of the statist thought cage. As such, I think I have done my job for now. Reason being, I just wanna enjoy the art in life without having to explain why a property norm is necessary, that we all own ourselves, and that order can be — and is achieved right now — in the absence of governments. To me, it has come to feel like trying to tell grown adults that the Tooth Fairy isn’t real, while they argue with me and laugh. An exercise in madness. And we’re kinda at the zero hour now. Where action has become the order of the day, now that the logical and philosophical/”legal” foundation of self-ownership has been thoroughly laid. It is of course a work centuries old, from before and through Emerson and Thoreau and Auberon Herbert, to Wendy McElroy and SEKIII, and onward — it’s as old as the first human, really, and will go on.

Nothing has changed about my views. I’ve come to them rigorously, with endless hours of reading, thinking, questioning, being proven wrong on one point or another, and continuing to grow. Most importantly, I’ve known all along in some way. It’s all really freaking simple!

Coming to greater clarity about my views has been the result of scraping more and more junk away to reveal what was always already there — myself — and not adding other people’s programs on like so many soul-offending tumors.

Yes, it is wrong to violate someone, or aggress against someone not harming you. Like they taught us as kids: don’t hit and don’t steal, but you can defend yourself against bullies. Then they turned around and gave gov and god a green light to do just those things and bully (and murder and rape and steal from) everyone. Hah! Well, if folks want to support pedophiles and extortion to pay for strangers in suits to brainwash young kids to murder other strangers overseas, and kill their kids, or jail people for a plant, well… Hell, that’s the path they’ve chosen, isn’t it?

The belief in pedophile murder “gods,” ethnic supremacism, and golden rules — where the proponents of said rule are not even following it — is even worse and more endemic in a way than just statism, so-called, but really it is all the same thing. It’s all part of the same delusion and self-cheat: Refusing to see with one’s own eyes, and think with one’s own mind, and feel with one’s own heart, for better or worse, growing and correcting along the way, and instead opting to take someone else’s word for it just because they say you must.

I’m gonna keep this page here, especially for the resources like our Japanese/English intro to Voluntaryism (which I know firsthand did help one guy’s Japanese wife to understand this crazy Voluntaryist stuff he’s always talking about! :)), and probably continue to update now and then. But I’m also going to be starting something new, focused on cool shit, and not trying to explain all the shit people should already understand anyway.

Something more in line with travel, music, running, Japanese culture, maybe crypto, and other such things, but a little off the beaten path. And without laying out the central tenets of why it is important to not bash your fellow human being’s life in with the club of the state every goddamn time. It has become too pedantic and a drag. It’s preschool stuff. It will be there as an “understood.”

That in mind — holy shit — the beautiful anarchy of the flowers this year! Spring has been great, with crypto happenings, tons of runs, visiting friends and breweries, and working on new music.

I really do appreciate the followers of this blog. The comments, interactions, and support means so much to me. Especially with all that has been happening to me personally, and in the world psychologically as of late. We’re under a fucking evil attack to be sure. It’s the biggest and dumbest con. The good thing is, once it is seen, its true power completely ceases. We cannot lose, ultimately, because we are idea people. Freedom and non-violence enjoyers of this world co-opted by lies. I wanna continue to support you all in some way if I can, too. Please consider joining the website to blog for Bitcoin Cash (I am over there too), and if you do, let me know in the comments so I can check out your stuff.

Again, this ain’t the end of the road for Voluntary Japan I don’t think, but there are several other paths I wanna run down, so there may be less footprints here in the future. And I wanna keep things here more on-point from now on as far as being based explicitly on the philosophy of Voluntaryism, apolitical reasoning, and arguing the logical and legal merits of non-violence — something that does not always lend itself to “lighthearted” or more abstract type creativity and blogging.

So, here we go.
