I am armed with the ability to think.  

Our minds are our best defense against the predatory actions of those who would initiate force or fraud against us.  I will be using this site to write a lot more about this concept, as well as inviting rational guests to contribute their thinking on intellectual tactics we can use to disarm these predators through the initiation of reason.

No one had the right to force you body or your mind.

Cogito, ergo armo.

For Mother’s Day and All Days

I wrote the essay linked below last year.  I think—now more than then—that everyone needs to read it, consider it, and act upon it.  Warfare does not work.  Can you name one human problem that has been solved by war?  Teach peace, call your children home, gather with other women, for we must be the peacemakers. Yes, there are some peace-making men, and they will help.  Gather all the peace makers, who will vow to forswear the initiation of violence forever.  Let Peace break out around Earth.

Nuclear Energy: We Have the Opportunity to Solve Problems with Reasoning, not with Force

This day of Peace and Promise, I give to you~

Many of us are thinking about nuclear waste pollution problems.  You will love the Einstein quote,about how we need a new level of thinking to solve today’s problems. Well, those old ways have not worked very well, have they?

But, rather than thinking that there is nothing we can do about it, let us begin today, this Easter Sunday, and continue to think of new solutions using new ways of thinking.  It is time to change to reasoning as our primary modality for problem solving, and abandon force, which didn’t solve problems, anyway.

The use of reasoning to solve problems is effective, else we could not have thought about it.

Do you understand that?

Now, we must quickly learn how better to use reasoning.

Strategic Capability of Peaceful Humans

Dear Friends on our Freedom Front,

We are having such beautiful successes all over Earth, as those governments sustained by force—rather than reason—topple one after the other.  It is a good game of freedom dominoes, is it not?

We have such a brilliant opportunity for Global Coordination through the internet.  I hope more of us join together in voluntary cooperative efforts, with each of us a teacher and a student at the same time, as is what thinking humans, in fact, are.
For starters:
It is time we got our memes and messages more tightly coordinated and globally shared, and time we make strategic plans to speak on specific subjects using the most effective memes and themes we are able to devise in these Human languages.  Here’s some I have been developing, and please share yours here in the comments, and I will get them up on this site.  This site is for our cooperative thinking.
1) we are all peaceful dissidents, actively protesting and peacefully acting against the global violations of human rights by oppressive and violent government agents all around Earth—here in Montana USA and elsewhere—in many cultures, religions, and Human races;

2) we are all peaceful, thinking people, trying to find peaceful ways to restore law and order to a planet wracked by extreme criminal elements who operate under the aegis of all governments which initiate violence against their masters and and employers;

3) we are all peaceful people, concerned—and publicly expressing our concerns—about all the corruption in all levels of government, which we are learning more about daily;

4) we are all peaceful people, working together to peacefully resolve the contradictions of inherent corruption in all the justice system, military, and legislative and executive branches of any government which sustains itself through the use of  violence;

5) as peaceful people, we are deeply curious to find resolution to those Human contradictions which limit Humans finding peaceful ways to end the use of force against harmless, peaceful people—as is demonstrated daily by government agents all around the Earth;

6) we are working on sharing with each other the means to implement peaceful solutions to end government corruption and violations of human rights;

7) we are peacefully working to restore to ourselves social contracts that protect—rather than violate—our human rights, whereever we live on this Earth;

I think it is time to let everyone know that we all work to replace government by force with government by reason.

I think these are good memes for us all to use consistently, as we take back such terms as peaceful, lawful, human rights, restoration of law and order, and peace.  I think it is time we let everyone know that we are intellectuals who are using our minds and thinking to develop effective, peaceful tools for protecting the human rights of everyone.
We all have great minds, and we can win this by peaceful means.  We must not let the power-damaged government tyrants steal our language and turn it against peace and lawfulness and human rights.
Remember as well, this is a Global Freedom Front, and we are part of a sea change of evolutionary transformation toward freedom and justice, with new cooperative and voluntary forms of governance the likes of which this young human species has not witnessed on a grand scale.

We are doing this: we are a part of the catalyst for this remarkable, wonderful, peaceful change.
I want to be as effective as I am able to be, using peaceful tools to effect remarkable reformations toward human liberty, don’t you?
It is time for us, we the People of Peace, to continue and accomplish the reformation of governments in to cooperative, voluntary social institutions based on human rights and free markets.  We owe this legacy to our children, grandchildren, and to the Earth.  Now is the time.

How can we better coordinate our work so that we are all more effective in our social engineering and meme introduction into the cultural fabric?
It is really time to step up our game toward peace.  The new FIJA Fresh Air brochure is getting a lot of good attention.  I am working on more for use in several places on the internet.  Let’s keep it up, and imbed the above and other memes so that we can gain and hold the moral high ground in this contest.  We have the minds to do it.  Please share your memes here, so that we may all share and coordinate our voluntary, peaceful efforts.

I think—don’t you?—that there are now enough of us, that if we launched an organized, cooperative, systematic, peaceful information deluge on Earth, that we can succeed in Peace on Earth.  I really think we can do it.

Is this not our time?

Don’t we have the social engineering skills, the meme placement capabilities, and a strategic capability to undertake a campaign of Global Human Rights against government by force?

Don’t we have the peaceful knowledge, the trained minds, and the networks of other capable people presently in place to launch this Global Initiative for Peace and cooperation?

Isn’t it about time?

I think we can do it.  And let’s get on with it, please, so we can have a peaceful Earth and go play with building some real space colonies.  I think we can do this Peace on Earth in a few months if we set out minds to it, don’t you?

Cogito, ergo armo, indeed.

Amazing Grace

How beautiful is the human voice!

We were made by our Creator to manifest peace and beauty, and to live in joy and love.  The passion and message of this song is poignantly apt this Lenten Season. And tomorrow we begin Passover, as usual. How joyful a celebration is our recognition of our Creator!

Knowing the origins of this song, as I am sure you do, too, is it not especially fitting during these years of the New Reformation?  We are witnessing again Divine Intervention, as more slavers come to Grace and give up practicing slavery against other humans.  Help them along: share this with all the public servants you know.

Share it and send along an appropriate and loving message:

“It is time for you to leave the employ of  government by force, and find honest work among your sisters and brothers. Regain your nobility.  Live in and by peace.  You are a good person, and you deserve better.”

Enjoy this magnificent performance.  Share it with your friends.  Share it with those who will be lifted up by its message and beauty.

Peace and Light to everyone.

Publicly Censure Your Public Servants

We need to remind our public servants that they are our servants, not our masters.  They forget themselves.

To Public servants of the Earth
It is time to call our public servants on the carpet, and put them in their place.

It is time to use peace and reason, justice and fairness, and expose them.

It is time to expose them to the public censure of the People, their masters.

It is time.

Peace in Our Time

We are not fools.

It should be obvious by now to everyone that no one is using enough force, or else all the human-caused problems on this Earth would be solved.

Now, THAT was foolish, right?

As I was blessing my squash, cucumber, basil, cilantro, and rosemary seedlings this evening, and welcoming them, on behalf of their parents, to this existence, I also thanked them for their wisdom.  I have never been attacked by a plant.

Yes, I’ve had poison ivy, one bad (tiny Aminita) mushroom, which sent me reeling and unable to walk for a bit, but no initiation of force against my life, at least so far.  And even the poison ivy is a reminder of the biting snakes which often hide under its leaves.

All of nature is rough and tumble.  Fang and tooth.  But I love the peaceful wisdom of a seed.  A seed knows what to do, given the least bit of encouragement, of sensed hope, and of care.

Love.  That is all a seed needs. I think it is what the world needs, too.  And has for some time, because we all keep talking about it for centuries and eons.  We humans.

But this time, I think we can teach fast enough, far enough—we team players for peace—to effect the change.  I really do.

Don’t you wonder if we could do it?

Wouldn’t you like to be part of trying?

If this is a game, which it is, actually, then I think this is the Peace On Earth Team, don’t you?

Hey, poets, let’s keep making all these wonderful moves!  We are planting new seeds, and they are sprouting.  How delightful, how shiny, is that?

Isn’t the internet wonderfully fertile ground?  Iamsmiling.

Ask them this.

Sometimes, don’t you find yourself in friendly conversation with someone who works for government?

You might think to ask them, “What do you do exactly?”

Then, no matter what they say they do, ask them, “Do you think anyone would Voluntarily PAY you to do that?”

Watch the expression on their face, more than you pay attention to their coercive culture cant of an answer.

Congratulations.  You will have both planted a seed of a whole beanstalk of questions, and you will have left that person to question what would be their worth in a free market.

Give it a try.  It is highly entertaining.  They know they are being exposed before the brilliance of free thought.

Cooperative Community Schools

I will be talking about how to organize and sustain cooperative community schools March 25th.

iloilo march 18 2011

And here’s the outline of the talk.  If you need more help in getting a school set up, leave a note for me here at the web site, which I check at least once a week.

A.  Home-schooling with independent model curricula and shared enrichment classes;

B.   Shared-schooling with several families cooperating to provide well-rounded educational opportunities and enrichment classes;

C.   Multi-family cooperative schooling in a single classroom setting;

D.  Community schooling in a multiple-classroom setting;

vi.   Start a community one-room school in your church, synagogue, community center, or any other place that is safe, clean, and healthy;

vii.   Ramp up your efforts! Find a church with unused rooms during week days, and enlist the church to sponsor your school.  Return the favor by cleaning, being active in their community, and helping out with church-related projects.

viii.   Ramp up your efforts!  Find a community center with unused space, and  make use of those facilities for classrooms, classes, meetings, and perhaps the eventual creation of your own community school trust, which will build or remodel to suit the educational needs of your community.

Model Characteristics:

1.    Independent Design: remember that you can have such attributes as adult learning as well;

2.    Strive to develop a model that you can share with others, and invite them to visit and learn.

3.    Document your development, and share those steps with others as you assist their efforts;

4.    Build your model based on Cooperation, Voluntary Association, minimal or no government involvement; no power structure; rotating Board of Trustees or directors;

5.    Build in a high level of commitment of time and energy from all families, including repairs, maintenance, cleaning, fund raising, volunteer time at the school or classroom;

F.   The introduction of the cooperative concept into the larger community, and the opportunity to express its efficacy in the face or increasingly draconian government coercion;

G.  A sense of self-governance, self-responsibility, and self-achievement;

H.  Building a community based on cooperation rather than coercion, because the model will be inoculated into other paradigms of human existence.   Have fun!
