Most People Don’t Want to Shape Reality

Most people don’t want to shape reality.

They don’t want to be engaged with reality. They want to be a guest on the anesthetized amusement park ride. That way, no one can ever blame you for anything, and you don’t need to take responsibility for anything.

“The government” and “society” to them is a magic force that just takes care of everything. It’s their God.

These folks get annoyed when someone starts asking about the ride, and if there isn’t a way to get off and maybe go check out that beautiful lake and forest over there on the horizon. Or that little city they can see shining way off in the distance. Or actually take an adventure with some real, non-simulated risk.

To the zoned out, the way things are is a *big relief.* The amusement park may murder, rape, pillage and destroy actual life elsewhere, but as long as their little towns and cities are basically okay, and they can play games on their smartphones and text their friends, who cares about all that other stuff? The ride still works.

The distraction is wonderfully hollow.

Other people realized at some point, however, that a “government” is not an authority at all. It’s just more idiot people like everyone else. These awakened folks want to build the buildings and shape the philosophies of their own lives and towns and communities. They don’t want a simulation. They don’t want to gawk and ooh and aaah at some third-rate Chuck E. Cheese party for dumbfucks.

They want to be an integral part of *real* things. Not just spectators who take pictures of old perverts in suits with titles like “President” and fawn over celebrities. Not just sycophant posers fantasizing that they have *any say at all* in decisions made for them by those in power.

Not just buckled in for some overpriced, idiot ride with flashing lights and clanging bells and saccharine-faced cartoon morons smiling at them from TV screens. They know the gears of the ride are oiled by the blood of dissidents, poor people, and slaves.

We wanna actually live and build the world. Not just watch.

Voting is a spectator sport. One where the score doesn’t matter. Because points are not counted.

The ride is now falling apart everywhere. And though I’m sad. I also couldn’t be happier about it.

It’s gonna get worse, though, and dangerous.

So let’s get ready.

Running Down the Clock

They’re just running down the clock.

It just takes time.

After so many layers of lies accumulate, people begin to forget original reference points.

Lies begin to reference less obvious lies. Things become increasingly ridiculous, but in a sea of years upon years of amalgamated confusion, it becomes too tiring for most to hold on to that original red thread of truth — if they even grasped it in the first place.

Control by confusion is an old tactic.

Soon, the so-called truthers will just be those shouting about the validity of some third-generation lie.

Remembrance is the cult’s number one enemy.

That’s why they’ve always burned books. Always “fact checked.” Always piled fallacy on top of obfuscated fallacy, so that even when you find some truth, it’s only half true.

NEVER FORGET.

They want to use this phrase to disguise the fact that your steel trap mind and spirit — remembering the evil that they are with all manner of proof to back up this conviction and knowledge — is their number one enemy.

Don’t forget.

They hate you.

They’ve always lied.

About everything.

ボランタリイズム

(English Below)

【ボランタリイズム】あなたは、あなたの体を所有しています。

あなたの体は、あなたのものです。これは自然の法則です。

あなた以外、誰もあなたの体を操作することはできません:自分の頭で考え、自分の言葉で話し、自分でまばたきし、自分で筋肉を動かしますあなた以外、あなたの体に対して高い権利する主張する人は他にいません。

警察、政治家、大統領、王、支配者、友人、家族でもありません。

自ら同意もしていない暴力を振るわない人に、同意を求めて強要したり暴力を振るうことは、常に間違っています。

先ほどのように、もし誰かがあなたを強制しようとした場合、あなたが所有しているあなたの体を防御することは完全に可能なのです無駄な議論を避けるために、所有権に関するすべての概念は身体からということに集約されます。

例えば、誰にも所有、属していない材料で自作したもの、労働やプレゼントなどで得た報酬、利益などはすべてご自身のものということです。

例えば、税の徴収、国土の所有等、政府のように言葉だけの意味のない発言だけで、誰も何かを所有することはできないのですいままで主張してきたことは、自主主義と自然の法則です。

【国家主義】

政府が必要だと思っている人々は、国家主義を主張する人々(“statist”)で、国家主義の概念は、「政府」が、人々を所有することは問題ないというのが一般的な信念です。

でも、これは間違っています。なぜなら、「政府」自体が、単なる人々の集まりだからです。(ボランタリイズム概念と照らしあわせると、政府は個々の集合体になります)

ここで、政府(個々の集合体)が普通の人々に、「暴力」をつかって、強制してきます例えば税金を払え戦争に行け、旅行の許可を求めよ(パスポートがないと国外にはいけない)などボランタリイズムの根底である、自分自身の所有権の規則のかわりに、政府はばかげた主張をしてきます「この土地はすべて我らが所有している!」 「マリファナは違法です。法を犯せば、あなたは監獄行きです!」 「税金を払わなければ、あなたの家を取りあげる!」など、政府は、あなたを所有していると主張します。

所有権に関する不変的な規則がないため、国家主義は常に問題を引き起こすのです。警察、政治家、政府関係者は特権的な一連の規則を自作し、それに従って生活し、「庶民」は別の規則に従って生活しています。これは現実と一致しておらず、混乱を引き起こします。

しかし、政府のない社会に、秩序を持たせる方法があるのです。現実的に、カルトのような政府とはちがい、自己所有に基づくグループが、コミュニティを拡大していくことができるのです。

例えば、現行だと国家独占の警察機関になり、彼らがなにをしたとしても税金でまかなわれているため、一向によくなりません、

しかしながらボランタリイズムが根底にある社会であれば現在の企業間の競争のように例えば数あるピザ店舗の内から一店が毒入りピザを提供してしまった場合にそのピザ屋は閉店に追い込まれたり業務停止になるように警察機関も数存在することになり非情なサービスを提供した場合は業務停止や閉店になっていくのです

政府や国家主義に準ずるのではなく、すべてを自己所有権に基づくやりかたで、優れた技術、有能なサービスを提供する機関、裁判所、民間の警察機関、運営していく方法があります

これをボランタリイズムといいます。

What Is Voluntaryism?

  • You own your body. Your body is yours. 
  • This is nature’s design. Nobody can operate your body more directly than you: think your thoughts, speak your words, blink your eyes, move your muscles. 
  • No other individual has a higher claim to your body than you. Not police, not politicians, not presidents, kings, rulers, friends or family. 
  • It is always wrong to use violence to force a non-violent person to do something they do not freely consent to.
  • If someone tries to force you in this way, it is 100% okay to defend your body, which is your property.
  • In order to avoid unnecessary arguments, all conceptions of property must extend from the body, e.g. “I own my body, so I also own the property I make or acquire with it in non-violence.” Nobody can own something just by making an empty claim as governments do.
  • The above list is the way of Voluntaryism, and of Natural Law. 

What is Statism?

  • Statism is the common belief that it is okay for governments to own the bodies of other people. This is wrong. Governments are just groups of people, themselves.
  • Even if someone is non-violent, individuals in government use violence to force them to do things: pay taxes, go to war, ask permission to travel, etc. 
  • Instead of a sensible rule of property based on concrete reality (self-ownership), governments make ridiculous claims, e.g. “We own all this land!” “Marijuana is illegal and we will put you in a cage if you have it!” “You must pay taxes or we will take your house!” Individuals in government claim to own your body, just by mere say so.
  • Statism always creates problems because there is no universal rule of property. Police, politicians, and government officials live by a privileged set of rules, and the “commoners,” another. This is not in line with reality, and creates chaos. 
  • There is a way to have order in societies without government. With groups of private property owners building their communities on policies extending from self-ownership, and not a violent myth. Instead of receiving payment from taxes even if they provide poor or abusive “service” like government institutions such as police often do, the market would hold competing private services accountable, the same way a pizza shop now would go out of business if they served poisoned food. There is a way to have humanity’s great technology, useful institutions, arbiters for justice, and private protection agencies, all based on self-ownership, and not the religion of “statism” or government. This way is called “Voluntaryism.”

Running 130 Miles Through Japan: Please Support Me With BCH On My Next Run 4 Peace!

This course will take me over 130 miles, following the many bends and turns of the longest river in Japan, the Shinanogawa/Chikumagawa.

Why am I doing this?

Because it’s fun. It is adventure. And adventure is something I need. 

I started running back in 2017 and I now find it difficult to imagine life without it. It brings me some peace of mind. 

It started when I decided to do something “crazy” and run a marathon in my city, Niigata. It was hard enough just to run to the end of the street at first. Then I worked up to 7 miles, then 12, then 20, and then on the day of the marathon, huffing and puffing, I finished 26.2.

After that I joined two more marathons in different cities, in 2019, with my time and running experience improving each race. Though I am just a normal guy, and nothing like a super-fast elite runner, what I love is that I can compete with myself, and my stubbornness and endurance pay off in distance running. You don’t have to be Mr. Twig or Ms. Lightning to finish a long-distance race, but you do have to have some guts. 

When the scamdemic hit, and a race for which I had been training nearly a year was canceled, I felt pretty dejected. It was a 100-miler in the mountains. Well. I had no choice but to start making my own DIY races. Here’s one such race I ran by myself through the Echigo plains, mountains and countryside. A 60-mile ultramarathon:

After the above run I finally worked my way up to a full-on 100-miler.

My Next Race! — The Chikuma River Run / 千曲リバーラン

The Shinano River 「信濃川」is the longest river in Japan. It empties into the Sea of Japan here in my city, Niigata. My plan is to follow the Shinano River valley into the mountains of Nagano, where its name changes to 「千曲川」the Chikuma River. 

The kanji for “Chikuma” 「千曲」literally means “1,000 bends” or could be creatively interpreted as “1,000 songs.” So I’m gonna say this will be the run of 1,000 songs.

Don’t have much time to train. Maybe a bit hasty, but life is now! I was gonna do this course last winter, to Zenkōji temple in Nagano City, but snow blocked my way. Hell. Why not do it in the blazing heat then?

And add 30 more miles!

Summer ultra runners lend me your wisdom!

So in total this run will be about 130 miles. I’m planning to start my run on July 31st.

What I need/want + EatBCH charity donation — My plan with your support:

  • About $150 for food/incidentals on the run down to Ueda City, the goal. This race will be another self-supported run, so there are no aid stations. Once my supplies I’ve packed run out, I will have to stop at convenience stores and hopefully roadside fruit stands and small shops to stay fueled up, comfortable (well, relatively so) and in the game. 
  • If possible I would like to buy an affordable GoPro camera to document this journey. This would cost around $200. If I do not make this goal I will simply use my phone as usual 🙂
  • Whatever this post earns (check section header link above to visit original read.cash article and upvote, or simply use the QR code at the bottom of this blog post), and whatever donations I receive via the QR code at the bottom of this post, I am going to send at least 50% of it to EatBCH. An independent charity helping to feed people in need in South Sudan and Venezuela. So, for example, if this post makes $700, I will have the $350 to cover my expenses, and would send the other $350 to EatBCH. If the post/QR code only makes a small amount, I will still send half to EatBCH. Additionally, if you don’t really care about my run and still want to support EatBCH, PLEASE DO THAT. That’s the most critical thing. 

What you get:

What you get is a stupid video of a white guy in Japan running through some beautiful-ass countryside, small villages and towns, talking about freedom, peace, the uselessness of the scamdemic, and the beauty of voluntaryism and peaceful human interaction. 

And a shoutout. So if you monetarily support this post, or donate to the QR code, let me know so I can say your name or user handle in the video. Also, if you give me a brief quote about freedom, I will include it in the video.

If I can get a nice camera, I think I’ll be able to share a bit of why I love Japan with you, and the magic of the countryside here, and the beauty of nature.

Regardless, I’m going to do the run. So, without further ado, here’s the donation address, and a nice photo of the goal, the Tokida Shinbashi in Ueda City, Nagano.

Thank you!

-GWS

Note: All QR code/BCH donations and earnings from this post will be held until the week before the run and disbursed on July 24th, regardless of market fluctuations. A record of this post’s earnings, and donations received to the BCH address in this post, will be kept to show that at least 50% was disbursed to EatBCH at current market prices on July 24. I’ll include this info in a follow-up post.

No Need to ‘Win’ or ‘Lose’ the Vaccine Debate – The Only Real Issue is CONSENT

The most important issue in the vaccine debate is not safety, but consent.

Maybe you think the Sars-Cov-19 jab was created on Mars by satanic Bill Gates clones with microchipped monkey appendages. Maybe you think masks miraculously cured influenza and heart attack victims should be counted as covid deaths. Maybe Dr. Fauci is your hero. Maybe you think he’s full of shit. Luckily, when it comes to consent, none of this bullshit debating matters.

It’s My Body. Full Stop.

Your body is yours. My body is mine. 

You want to take the new vaccine. I do not. 

I want to open my business. You want me to stay home. 

So what do we do? 

We enter a fierce and largely pointless debate about the safety and efficacy (or lack thereof) of a supposed new medical treatment. If no persuasion is achieved, we resort to leveraging the violence of the state by voting to force one another into unwilling compliance, even though we have never previously harmed each other, and don’t know each other personally.  

Yay! Three cheers for civilized society.

But these anti-vaxxers are endangering others!

THEN STAY AWAY FROM THEM.

We can’t! We have to share public spaces! 

THAT IS INDEED AN ISSUE, THEN.

These covidiots want to destroy our livelihoods!

JUST IGNORE THEM.

We can’t! They are making laws to force their opinions on us violently!

HMMM. THAT IS INDEED A PROBLEM.

Live and Let Live, Or A Club on the Head?

Civilized individuals try to live and let live peacefully, as much as possible. The truth is, violence is expensive – financially, socially, emotionally. The majority of humans seek to avoid it at all costs. 

What humans are not generally averse to, however, is outsourcing their violence to a euphemism called the state, or “government.” Whichever party controls the government (read:legal monopoly on violence), therefore controls the laws.

But there is one huge problem with government. These laws were created arbitrarily, not based on logic or concrete reality. Legally recognized rights are not universal to all individuals. Some individuals enjoy far greater rights than others, by virtue of government’s magical and arbitrary assignment thereof. 

For example, murderous, crooked cops often enjoy extreme immunity from the legal pressure and scrutiny that would otherwise be applied to “common criminals.” Giant pharmaceutical companies which lobby the state have legislation tailor made for them by the state, to mitigate their damages and decrease accountability. This would not be done for the “average individual.”

Body Ownership Is Non-Negotiable

The answer to the state’s arbitrary violence, and the answer to the vaccine debate is simple: my body, my choice.

If I do not consent to having a needle driven into my arm, you had damn well better stay away from me. Once you attempt to do this, I am in my natural law rights to do anything I need to do to stop you. 

If you do not consent to me being on your property unvaxxed, or without a mask, I had better damn well heed your request to leave. Why? That property was acquired by you legitimately via your body, which you own. For me to trespass against your property is to effectively claim ownership over your body. You would be within your natural law rights to use physical force to remove me. 

See how easy that is?

So what’s the problem? The problem is the anti-concept called “public property.”

Public property is a myth propagated by centralized, non-consensual governments. All public property can do is engender conflict and potentiate violence. Imagine we both pay taxes for the same library. I want there to be a no mask policy. You want the opposite. There is no option afforded where we can have competing libraries with different policies, because the state sets blanket policies and law for all libraries in our geopolitical region. Where did the state get this awesome power? They simply appointed it to themselves. Not based on reality. Not based on body ownership. They simply “said so” in godlike fashion.

This is different than joint use of private property where all respective owners fully and freely consent to the joint usage, and where all property concerned was legitimately acquired via their bodies. 

All this said, if you attempt to force a needle on someone, you are pro-violence. 

If you attempt to force someone to take off their mask, it is the same. 

LET’S STOP VIOLATING EACH OTHER. LET’S LIVE AND LET LIVE.

The Party

We shall finally rest

Dancing in green fields at the foot of mountains

In the safety of awakened love

The village warm

The party ready

Nothing but celebration

And work worth doing

Eating the days alive

No longer ignoring the

Joy of the earth

As she throbs with delight

Intro to Voluntaryism – Decentralized, Individualist Order

Sex, Money, and Medicine: Why Consent Is Never Optional

Prepare for an exciting journey into the twisted logic of statism. Consent may not be what you thought it was!

Consenting to a Mugging

You’re walking through a park late at night. Suddenly the cold metal of a gun barrel is jammed against your temple, painfully stretching the skin on your face. “Gimme your money,” an aggressive voice demands in your ear. Having no choice but to give up your wallet or possibly die, you hand over all you have, and fall to the ground in shocked relief as the assailant disappears into the trees with your wallet in hand.

Lucky for you, the mugger didn’t actually force you to pay. You had a choice. You consented. You were free to choose to die and keep your wallet, but you instead chose to live, which in this case carried the cost of losing all your money. Tough cookies, but that’s just how life goes sometimes.

Consenting to Taxes

It’s the same with paying taxes. Some people bitch and moan about having to pay their fair share and sure, there are some valid reasons people oppose taxation. Some people don’t want to pay for wars that kill innocent people. Some don’t want to pay for abortions. Some don’t want to pay for bloated government overspending on lavish public parks and civic facilities. Some just want to keep their own hard-earned cash to spend on other things.

While all of this makes sense, taxpayers still have free choice. They can choose to pay and remain safe, or keep their own money and be audited, potentially arrested and then even killed if they resist the arrest for not paying. The choice isn’t an easy one, but the fact remains: they did have a choice.

Consenting to Sexual Assault

Then there’s sex. Such a wonderful thing as sex should not be kept from anyone. It’s basically a human right. As such, if you wish to molest, sexually assault or rape someone, it’s not that big of a deal. They always have the choice to fight back and try to stop you.

Consenting to Vaccination

When it comes to medicine and bodily penetration by a needle, it’s the exact same as sex. Sure, maybe the government won’t allow you to take a critical business trip to another region, or escape an exploding volcanic island without the covid-19 vaccination. 

Sure, they might demand you surrender your body to an as-of-yet unapproved mRNA treatment in order to move across arbitrary borders and through various legal jurisdictions. But hey, snowflake. Stop whining. You always have a choice. By choosing to not get the vax, you are effectively freely consenting to your business failing, not seeing your friends and loved ones, and potentially starving to death and dying.

WAKE UP! 

None of the above garbage scenarios are examples of consent, of course. True consent doesn’t involve violence and coercion. Now let’s head back to reality, talk about real consent, and shine a light on the solution to the current collectivist plague.

In the same way Pizza Hut cannot force you to pay them for pizza if you don’t want it, your neighbors cannot force you to pay for a park they want to build. Your best friend cannot force you to fill out paperwork and give him a percentage of your income. Your partner cannot force you into having intercourse. Private security companies can’t violently make you choose their service over others. In the same way all of these are clearly immoral and wrong, so is forcing people to take a vaccine against their will, pay taxes, or go through a financial institution to use their money.

Imagine Pizza Hut threatening people at gunpoint if they decided to go across the street and have a Domino’s pizza instead. That is how insane forcing people to pay for government services (regardless of quality or accountability) is.

The central problem here is the violent, forced association and disassociation the state requires. Say Charlie pays taxes for a library and Joe also pays taxes for that same library. Charlie votes that the library should require all patrons be vaccinated before entering. Joe votes the opposite way. This conflict can never be resolved peacefully, as both are extorted to pay for the place and want to get their money’s worth by leveraging politics to club the other over the head.

They think the only way to solve problems is via the violence of the state. How foolish! 

The key to truly live and let live then, is privatization. Privatization of money. Of medicine. Of property. Your bodily autonomy is no more a matter to be voted on than a woman’s body who doesn’t want to be assaulted. Your private business is no more a matter to be voted on than what goes on in your bedroom. The end.

The time has come to be consistent. Which is it then, statists: consent, or coercion? There is no gray area here. My body, my choice. If you do not wish to associate with me, I will respect that wish. But do not attempt to restrict my freedoms by claiming ownership over me.

Please see the video exploration of this topic below for more information. Thanks for reading!

Who Made Your Spine? – Life Is Such a Fucking Trip, Any Way You Slice It

It’s easy to fall into ruts of hubris. Cynicism. Fear. In fact, most people including myself probably live there most of the time. And that is truly a tragedy. I was just thinking the other day: for all my cocky attitudes and acquired knowledge about this and that. For all my hatred of others that I deem malicious (and this may even be justified to an extent), I am considering myself from an egoistic perspective. 

My spine is working. Electricity is flowing. My heart is beating. My limbs and body are moving without even a single concentrated thought. I feel. I intend. I do. Lightning fast. More than lightning fast. How in the hell does all this shit work? Where in God’s holy name does it come from. We are all so cocky, but our hearts could simply stop beating at any moment, really. But for the grace go I. And isn’t that the truth? 

But at the same time – what about those poor kids in the Middle East that have to watch their mothers and fathers get blown to bits by U.S. bombs. What about the fentanyl addict that has seen all his friends succumb to addiction and die, purple and blackened face, in an alley? All of life’s stupid dreams culminating in…this. They finally numbed the horrific pain of living on this fucked up planet. No. Of living in a fucked up society

Still. What intellectual, college-educated, doctorate holding loser can understand how the large intestine knows when to squeeze the waste out? What Nobel Prize winner can explain the foundations of consciousness, or how the flowers bloom each spring. Sure, dumb fuck, we know the technical side of it. The change of seasons and the sense of heat and sunshine – but what is the knowledge and force in the first place?

Electricity stimulates the heart into pumping the blood. But what sets all this into motion?

I remember being pretty well drunk and looking into a bathroom mirror. It was at a McDonald’s, late night, after a party. I stuck my tongue out in the mirror and saw it for the first time. What a motherfucking weird thing a tongue is. I saw it with almost completely fresh eyes, as though I had never seen one before. What an alien apparatus! How bizarre, indeed!?!? A weird muscle that I can move around, without even a thought really, and which jostles the food around in my mouth so I can eat it!

And I wanna flex like I’m something special. I fucking don’t know what’s going on here, either. All I know is it’s amazing. And all I know is we all need more love and understanding. The world is starving for that right now.
