Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally,
Episode-1269- You Are Your Only Solution and originally aired on Dec 13, 2013.
The notes below are the original notes from that episode.
Day in and day out I get emails from listeners that mean well, but frankly most don’t get it. They are emails about passing a law for this or that, as if that would really fix anything. Franky I am at a point where the only laws that need be passed would be a law undoing an existing law.
Government and restrictions on liberty are the problems, hence stop looking for solutions from the people causing the problem.
Some sound good, such as, people that want to amend the constitution to say, “Congress shall make now law that “all laws made by Congress applying to citizens of the United States apply equally to members of Congress themselves”.
Sure that sounds good but you are saying, please let us ask the wolf and the fox to pass a law that says they can’t raid the hen house. How likely is that to work?
It doesn’t help that this myth is attributed to Warren Buffet who first never said it and secondly shouldn’t be trusted any more then Barack Obama or George Bush, in other words not at all. The government has created every single major problem it is currently trying to supposedly solve.
Let me be blunt you are NEVER EVER NEVER, going to see a world where our government becomes “good” or “smaller” or “less corrupt” unless it simply fails and even that is no guarantee of anything. Sorry to tell you folks but you are your ONLY solution to any and all real problems that you and your family will face.

great rewind. I’ve been practicing many zero waste principals after reading The Zero Waste Home. It’s changed lots of my habits for the better. I’m take the trash out about once a month at the most and using dog food bags as the trash bag.
Jack – excellent rewind episode. Many thanks for it; I listened in my car the first time, and then at home so I could pause to take notes (and I took a lot). Your thoughts on education as well as your definition of education had me applauding your show. You asked for someone to quote you, and here is much of that segment (I’ve not checked Forum, may also be there):
“Education’s not just school. It’s all information that’s put into your mind, processed, retained and used to deduce further information. Can we redefine education with that way right now? All information, taken into your mind, processed and used to deduce additional information and to understand and interpret additional information. That’s what education really is.
So you might learn how to carve and then when you carve a different type of wood, you feel that it’s different. So, you use what you already know to interpret this new way this wood particularly carves, and you adapt to carving a harder or softer piece of wood. … That’s education.
So education is all the information that goes into your brain and is processed to make decisions and deduce other information.”
Brilliant. Education is not simply 8 hours a day of sitting in a chair or being in a building; it doesn’t start/end/stop there. It’s more than the books and computer. It’s life, and it’s nonstop. THANK YOU for this segment.
Jack, it gave me joy to know you used the episode for TSP Rewind. This is my all-time favorite episode and is the single episode that sold me on your show. I found your show a few days before this one aired and listened to the episodes leading up to it. But once I heard this, I was in and have been listening ever since. Personally, I feel it should go on the link for “show for new listeners”. It gets to the heart of all we are doing. We are our only solutions for our lives. Thanks Jack
