In Defense of Stating the Problems Facing Us

“As regards intellectual work it remains a fact, indeed, that great decisions in the realm of thought and momentous discoveries and solutions of problems are only possible to an individual, working in solitude.”

Sigmund Freud, Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego

I am completely sick and tired of all those who concentrate only on pretending to have solutions for all life’s problems, mostly political problems, for large swaths of people, while condemning those of us who strive to outline the real problems in light of the fact that only each individual can solve his own dilemma. The problems of voluntary slavery and totalitarian servitude cannot be solved by any one person or group of people attempting to come up with general solutions for everyone. Any expectation that these attempts could actually be achieved is completely ridiculous, unless each individual first cures himself. No one can solve the problems of others unless he helps and improves himself first, and then acts on that improvement so as to be a guide for others. Any notion otherwise is conditioned on stupidity, arrogance, or force.

This is not to say that there are not many solutions for problems facing us, as addressing particular matters can be helpful in achieving short-term solutions to isolated problems, but considering the big picture, and solutions for freedom for the masses, that is another matter. Only the individual can achieve such a change of heart and mind, and then decide to behave in a manner conducive to the betterment of his own life and liberty. This cannot be achieved by others or their efforts to change entire societies with blanket solutions. As an example, advising one to escape the system by moving off grid, or by explaining how to raise your own food, or by discussing the issue of preparing for difficult times; all these things are useful, but still must be achieved by individuals, whether working alone or in groups of like-minded individuals. None of this will solve the larger problem of State tyranny however, but it can help certain individuals to protect themselves at the margin. The bigger picture of State and global tyranny, must be addressed en masse, but real solutions can only be successfully advanced by each individual coming to the same conclusion, and reacting by negation of rule.

I saw today that some people who promote the idea of free societies, which can only happen in anarchy, people I might otherwise admire, were very condescending toward those of us who expose and condemn the actual big problem, and explain that no offered solution for the masses is worthwhile, unless each individual acts against that problem, which is the governing system. I do not “dwell” on problems, I expose them so that those who normally ignore realty have an opportunity to know the truth. I am certainly not a doomsdayer, but I do not pretend that I can solve the problems of others who have not the inclination or ability to help themselves. I have been condemned many, many times for not offering the perfect solution to tyranny, and even condemned for not implementing said solution, so that I could fix all problems for the plebs too lazy or dependent to help themselves. I write to expose the major problem (s), in order to educate others as to the dire circumstances we face, and to expose the continuation of the State’s efforts to control all of us. The rest is up to each of you to address.

As I write this, I am still getting emails saying that I seem angry, and that my “rants” are “pointless” and not “constructive.” (wanting only good news and flowery euphoric BS) Many think I am bitter, but the fact of the matter is that I am one of the happiest people anywhere on earth, and enjoy life to the fullest every single day. I have the most fantastic family, and actually cherish every moment; this in the presence of a society, most all the population actually,  who do absolutely nothing to protect or gain their own freedom; a harmful and devastating situation to all who value liberty.

The realization of our dire circumstances does not need to be sugar-coated, so that the ignorant dolts sitting on their fat asses on their cell phones, pretending to be something they are not, while wearing a ‘virtual reality’ headset and eating cheetos, can take 30 seconds out of their useless lives to read an article or watch some podcast telling them all will soon be rosy and merry. There are plenty of people who can suggest this or that, and say they are giving solutions to major problems, but those problems have never been solved in history, and are still getting worse every day. Just go vote for another piece of garbage politician, a new master, and all will magically be better. That has certainly worked out great since the beginning of time, so why not just keep doing the same things, and depending only on someone else’s solutions?

I will just keep telling the truth, with the miniscule possibility that some may gain enough guts to face their own downfall, and stand on their own two feet, instead of wishin and hopin for someone to tell them what to do. Almost everything has a solution, and normal problems can be solved most all the time, but no one can solve the complicated challenge of freedom by simply telling others what to do. Each has to help himself, or perish.

People are not weak and powerless unless they choose to be, it is just that most are lazy and dependent, and are wallowing in a sea of apathy. So here goes; listen carefully, as I will give the one solution to tyranny to all, and assume that everyone will immediately wake up and change the world. Dissent, do not obey, do not comply, negate all government, do not ever vote for a master, question everything, and cause no harm to anyone.

There you have it, so now there is no need to complain that you do not know what to do to fix everything! In the meantime, I will continue to expose the criminal slaughter and rule of humanity, without any regard whatsoever for those who would question my motives, or caterwaul on endlessly due to being terrified of the truth.

“There is no worse thing that can be done to some people than to show them a solution to the problems they complain about.”
