Episode-2009- A New Look at Virtual Nations

What Truly Defines a Nation vs. a State?

In 2014 I first conceived of the concept of a “Virtual Nation” in episode 1428 and it was huge learning experience.  The most surprising thing was when I asked people what would they put in the constitution of a virtual nation, some of the first ideas were things like term limits and restrictions on elected officials.

What?  Why would you have elected officials in a voluntary society?  That was my reaction and what I learned is even in the liberty community how entrenched the concepts of statism are.

Not long after this, the first proclaimed virtual nation (BitNation) was launched.  Along with that I took another look at the concept in episode 1561.  Since then BitNation has yet to do much that I can see anyway, though I am officially a citizen, there isn’t much you can really do yet inside it.

Then this week I was listening to podcasts on the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network and came across this episode, State Change #41 Unpacking Digital Identity – Christian Lundkvist, Stephen Wilson. The guest brought up a lot of challenges with digital identity including layers of identity, such as how much identity does a given action require.  Such as to play an online game you don’t need to reveal as much information as you do to say request a loan.

They seemed pretty resigned to still needing the state to acomplish much of this, however, it led me to what virtual nations should really be doing to create a “first product”.  A true and validated identity that anyone would accept.  While it sounds complicated, it really would not be.  It would also be a source of initial funding for a virtual nation and provide a creditable base for everything beyond that.  Make sense?  If not tune in for a revolutionary idea that I have been working on in my head for over three years now.

Episode-2000- How Liberty Creates Inequality and Why that’s Good

There is a fallacy out there masquerading as a universal truth, and that is that our goal in society should be equality for all.  That inequality should be eliminated, period.  Politically many people have many different views on how that should be done, however the average person would agree that inequality is a bad thing, and should be eliminated.

The truth though is while the definition of inequality has been changed by the politically correct you can’t ignore the root of the word.  It is formed from two parts,

In this case the prefix “in” indicates a negative, as in the word “not”.

The component equality comes from the word equal as in each part, person, etc, get the same thing.

In other words inequality means “not equal”.  So some get more than others, some get less.

What we have done is made inequality the same as or equal to injustice, which means a lack of fairness or justice or simply “not just”.

These two things are not the same thing.

If you think I am splitting hairs tune in today because this is a critical thing to understand when discussing liberty with others.

  • What is an inequity
  • What is an injustice
  • How liberty reduces injustice but increases inequality

Episode-1996- Can Insurrection and Unity Coexist

When I started this show I was a minarchist libertarian, over the years I made the logical migration to full on voluntarist.  Many people of anarchist ideology see no value to things like national borders or any “love of country”.  I am not such a person, though I am labeled as such at times.

The truth is in all things I am first a pragmatist.   It is great to know how things should be so that we can strive for that, but it is also important to know how things are, so we can adapt to and over come them in the now.

To me anarchy is something for humanity to one day rise up to, rather than descend into as the fear mongers would say.   In the end though we have what we have today, and honestly in the US despite our flaws we do have many opportunities and recognized rights that many other nations do not.

Part of me loves my country, more accurately the ideals of my country, the ideal for instance that all men are created equal in regard to rights.   That each of us should have the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   I think that is a good common ideal to share among all free men and women, a source of unity.

Yet in every place our nation falls short of these ideals, I feel the spirit of insurrection should be alive and well.  We all know that governments do not grant rights, they either protect or trample upon them.  And once government takes a right away by increasing their power, they never give it back willingly.  It is only thought rebellion and insurrection, that power is taken from the state.

Words like revolution, rebellion and insurrection conjure up images of violent resistance.  Yet the state is violence, the state is force and the state is very good at these things, hence we do not strike the opponent where he is strong, rather where he is weak.

Episode-1991- How Preparedness Leads to Liberty

If you go find my TSP forum profile you will see a bit of text that says,

Liberty is precious, fight to keep it!

I guess it is about 8 years since I put those words on my profile and my view of the value of liberty has only increased since that time.  Since day one I have said the real mission of The Survival Podcast is to educate people to the concepts of Self Sufficiency, Self Reliance, Independence and Liberty.  To me those four ideas can’t be separated.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • First let’s define the four pillars of TSP
    • Self Sufficiency – The percentage of your needs met by your own systems
    • Self Reliance – The duration in time you can live well without systems of support
    • Independence – The ability to control your own life on your own terms
    • Liberty – The freedom to fully exercise your independence
  • Why people choose bondage over liberty
    • Programming and conditioning (domestication)
    • Fear
    • Misdirected morality
  • How Preparedness Leads to Liberty
    • It removes fear
    • It directly addresses programming and domestication
    • It requires independent thought
    • It is counter to the norm, and requires action
    • It sooner or later pays off, so you know it works
  • The things we should be taught are our personal responsibility as children
    • Food
    • Water
    • Shelter
    • Energy
    • Security
    • Finance
    • Health
    • Education
  • Why the system will never take this approach

Episode-1928- Do People Really Want Freedom

Most People Willing Put On Their Own Chains

The word freedom has almost been risen to holy status in our society.  You see people absolutely lose their minds if someone say burns a dime store flag that they personally paid for, because, “that flag symbolizes our freedom”, etc.

Our nation is touted as “the freest nation in the world” and anyone questioning the claim is shouted down and told nonsense like, “well then move to Somalia”.  I am sorry but a person point out discrepancies and concerns about liberty is not told to just move to Somalia in a society that actually loves freedom.

In the end I don’t think the question is so easy to answer.  On the surface, sure everyone yearns to be free, but do they really and how is freedom defined by those answering the question.  We will examine this today and more.

  • First let us acknowledge the places where we do tend to have more freedom

    • What is pure freedom

    • No one should ever take away anything from anyone against their will

Episode-1895- Developing the Skill of Self Leadership

jobs

Today facebook is ringing out the bells of the end of all as we know it.  Half screaming that is Hillary wins WWIII will happen by February and the other half claiming Trump will have a hit squad out knifing Mexican orphans throwing them over the wall.

Sorry guys at my age I have seen all this shit many times before.  The surprise to me is how many times I have read the word “leader” and “leadership” in all of this.  As in, “the US is in desperate need of a great leader”, that type of thing.   As if any of the psychopaths that are fighting for control are worthy of being followed?

So my show will be about leadership today, but now about leading teams, or nations or companies, rather leading only yourself and by doing so your family and your loved ones.  Tomorrow you will likely wake up to either President Trump or President Clinton, baring any Bush/Gore type of close call of course.  Either way, no matter what you think now, the reality will begin to truly sink in as we move into 2017 and one of these two taking the oath of office.

Sooner or later you will be faced with reality, you are in charge of you, period and you control nothing more than you control yourself, so let’s get a jump start on that today.

Join Me Today As I Discuss…

  • What it was like for me as I was building TSP
  • The story of the shepherds and driving vs. leading
  • The reality that your politicians are not even supposed to be leaders
  • The keys to personal leadership
    • It all starts with circles of influence vs. concern
    • Define the mission
    • Set priorities for tasks based on what you like least
    • Be passion driven but pragmatic as well
    • Find ways to inspire yourself
    • Put compromise in your back pocket
    • Embrace, hardship and struggle
    • When you get to “good enough” go at least a little further
    • Don’t try to be anyone else, be who you really are
    • Never shift responsibility, never make excuses
    • Above all be honest, especially with yourself
  • Final Thoughts

Episode-1885- Join the Quiet Insurrection

anarchy

Well with all that went on in the last month I never got the Tuesday polls posted so I have to call an audible today and pick my own show, I think long time listeners will be pleased with it.

I sat today in dismay as I looked at Fox News and CNN for just a bit to get a feel for what is going on with the Assclown Circus of 2016.  All I hear is each side saying the other side sucks more.  I am getting emails from listeners about how family members are angry with each other because of who they will vote for or because they won’t vote at all.

I look and I see nothing but a nation on verge of just saying F-it and dropping a shit ton of LSD and lighting shit on fire.  It saddens me and it makes me laugh at the same time.  I know as I have always taught there is no solution in the halls of government or in arguing with your friends and family about which criminal is worse or even making the case that they are all criminals.  The only real solutions are in the acts of sedition and insurrection.

Of course it is not time for riots, or gun fire or bombs, those are the weapons of fools.  The state excels at violence, it is the master of violence.  The quiet insurrection is the one we have been involved in for almost a decade now.  I just think it is time for a pep talk on the subject.

Episode-1825- Raising Resilient Children in a World Full of Wusses

adventureToday we discuss a subject near and dear to my heart, frankly the future of our nation and our world.  I hear all the time today how our kids are tea cup kids, how they are soft, easily offended and incapable or getting though adversity.

Oh dear friends if only it were that limited.  There are plenty of 20, 30 and even 40 year old people today that I can say the same about.  Yet I will admit that in my experience as an employer, that something clearly went very wrong between the 1980’s and the 1990’s.  There absolutely is a dramatic divide in the number of tea cups based on growing up in one of those two decades.

Translation if you were born after 1978 and are not a tea cup, go hug your parents around the neck right now and say thank you!

Today it has gone full on idiotic!  It is far more that participation trophies, not keeping score in game, “everybody wins” and a refusal to discipline.  Now we have young adults with safe spaces on college campuses at the very time they should have very belief challenged.  Instead they are being protected from “micro-aggressions”, and having their college level work graded on a “curve” to make sure anyone who even tries passes.

But today will not be a rant session, I will absolutely not focus on the problem, or what can be done about the current generation as a whole.  Instead I will stay inside your personal circle of influence, and focus on how to help your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc, grow up strong in a world full of wusses.

Episode-1573- Forget Sustainable Be Regenerative

Permaculture-Anarchist

Photo Credit to BrinkOfFreedom.net

Today is actually a part of the insurgency series, which might seem odd at first.  How can being to turn a Darby Simpson phrase “beyond environmental” be insurrectionist?  I mean isn’t big government all for “being green”?  Well the short answer to that is no, but even what is paid lip service to is just “green washing”.

The key is a true dichotomy, we fall on two sides in this and the vast majority are of the first mindset, here are you two choices…

1.  Humans are akin to a virus on the planet, all we bring is destruction and resource depletion, our only recourse is to do less harm to the earth, but our very existence will always do some harm.

2.  Humans are a natural part of earths ecosystem.  We are not a virus but we have been infected at this point with what you might consider “bad coding”.  If humans use their intelligence and adapt to natural reality, we are regenerative force and hence our impacts can be largely beneficial to the environment and ourselves at the same time.

Keep in mind the first option is the one presented to you by the very people that control you, tax you and tell you spraying your food with herbicide won’t harm you.  That the very government that says they want you to be sustainable is bought and paid for by big pharma, big Ag, big energy and big food along with every other big industry in our nation!

Such systems derive their power from fear and scarcity.  These two underlying components are used to stir up anger and resentment and there by create divisions of the classes, in other words they are the primary means of fascist control.  Whether classical fascism or modern neo fascism matters not.  If you are to “act as a mediator between the classes to the benefit of both the state and industry”, you must divide and stratify as many classes as possible.

If you are to truly free yourself from the control by the power elite you must understand and counter every method of control they exert on you.  One such method is convincing you that you are a destructive force when you are the only being we know of that can truly be purposefully regenerative.

This should anger you into action, to be blunt, today we uncover another lie you have been programmed to believe your entire life and examine how it has controlled your actions and thoughts without your knowledge.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Sustainable defined, regenerative defined and the real difference
  • Why this is important in the first place
    • Modern survivalism is about liberty
    • How you think controls how you act
    • If you think you can’t do good, you won’t
    • If you think you can do good, you will
  • The lies of sustainability
    • Maintaining a severely damaged system is possible and desirable
    • Environmental solutions should be centralized
    • High population density is environmentally sound
    • We are not a natural part of the planet, we are an invasive species
    • Our only hope is to do less bad, the best thing we can do is die
    • We are the problem
  • The truth of regenerative ideology
    • First and foremost we are a native species to the earth
    • We are the only known species that can consciously improve the planet
    • The solutions to most current problems is decentralization
    • We are natural cultivators who have gotten lost
    • We can produce our own food, medicines, fibers, fuels and fertility
    • We are the solution, our only hope is to do more good
    • Our footprints can be immensely positive
  • Why this is sedition, positive sedition

Yes, it was very perceptive. I teach self-reliance, the world’s most subversive practice. I teach people how to grow their own food, which is shockingly subversive. So, yes, it’s seditious. But it’s peaceful sedition. ~ Bill Mollison

Episode-1567- Curtis Stone on Making a Living of the Land, New Anarchism and Local Trade

Get ready and strap in today.  We are going to really blow things up with our guest Curtis Stone.  Curtis Stone is the owner/operator of Green City Acres (est. 2010), a commercial urban farm based out of Kelowna, BC. Farming under a half acre of land spread over multiple plots in the downtown core, they sell vegetables to some of the cities best restaurants, wineries, and a weekly farmers market.

Curtis also works as an educator, consultant, and writer on the subject urban farming throughout North America.  He joins us today to discuss three explosive topics…

  • 1. Implementation of quick cash flow based annuals into pasture and perennial based farms.
  • 2. The New Anarchist Front; escaping tyranny by using urban ag as a vehicle to build social equity in cities through production, education, outreach, and getting rich at the same time. Urban farmers as a decentralized unified front for State dissent from within the belly of the beast.
  • 3. Local trade economics; food production is like printing money. Leveraging what everyone needs to get what you need. Farmers sit at the center of a multi ring circle. Food production is central, value add food is next, then food services, and from there we have skilled labor and trades, and outside of that is specialized services and expertise. Farming is the backbone of the local economy. In this new decentralized local economy, farmers are the lynchpin to the whole system, not the indentured laborers.

When I met Curtis I was excited to talk to him knowing about his successful 6 figure business, that began on land he didn’t own, in the suburbs, in the back yards of others.   Basically he had set a high bar for himself, one he easily cleared.  There are few times that I meet a person and immediately feel I am talking to a true brother in spirit, Curtis is one such person.  Today’s show will absolutely rock!

In the body of your email tell me that you just called in a question for the council and what number you called in from. I will then give the call priority when I screen calls.
