I understand that you truly desire to be free. How do you propose that we function without some one in charge. Bring it down to say your town. Do you want to be asked about every single thing that goes on. Do you want a call at 2am so the town can vote on who should plow?
I'm all for being a member of a society. I'm against the conditioning. If the state can take the time to "educate", then the state can also take the time to teach everyone how the society works. Then after they teach how the society works, then every individual can choose whether or not to opt in. That's freedom.

Just my opinion that things would colapse and crumble before your plan could take effect. There is also personal responsibility on the individual to want to educate themselves.

I totally agree that things would collapse. Things don't look good as they are though either. If keeping people in the dark was thought to be a good and sustainable idea, I'd say they didn't think it through. Either that, or, they did think it through and figured, what the hell, let's do it even though it won't last forever. I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out that a "society" full of Human Beings who can't think for themselves will not last. Because, Those who control them will run too far out of control themselves, and that's when people wake out of their coma and say, no more.

I agree about the part of personal responsibility on the individual to educate themselves. It's just too bad that there are those among us who see fit to condition the masses. Conditioning takes hold and robs from the individual within. The idea of personal responsibility takes a back seat to the overwhelming driving force in this country which is called, "indoctrination". Some call it brainwashing. This conditioning is difficult to overcome.

But of course, just like with praxis33, if the thing was not in our faces, then we could not ever recognize it, and remove it, and evolve away from it.

So, I suppose in some way, we need to have praxis33, just like we need to be opposed in our plight for personal freedom.

It does seem strange though to think of praxis33 as providing us with some valuable service. There is a good philosophical argument for it though. I'd make the argument that it's for the best. Any takers?

I had to stop and sleep on my way home from work because I was too tired to travel. I slept in my car for hours. I awoke to a knocking on my window. It was the State Police. I rolled down my window and she asked me if I was o.k.. I replied, yes, I'm fine. She then told me to have a nice day. So, I did.

She was very pleasant, and as I was traveling home, I thought that if that's how it was, then it would all be fine. But that's not how it all is, is it? Poor James Garner, and his beautiful family.

Can't have the good without the bad. The nature of this world will never change. It's for us though, right? Isn't it? I think so

Everything in life has it's pros and cons. It is all about if it is worth it or not. Each person has to decide exactly what price they are willing to pay.

Agreed. When I weigh it out, and I'm looking at my children, I figure I don't want them to have to deal with a big mess. So where does leave me? For me, it means the adults have to clean it up, so that the kids don't have to. For me, anything less is equated with, "ignorance is bliss." But it won't be bliss for the children though. Throwing one's self on the gears of the machinery is not a foolish thing to do considering one's motivation.

When that officer woke me up, I saw it going bad, and quick. But it's because I was already mentally prepared, just like any other day. But she did not ask me for any I.D. And, why would she? But some would, am I right? And that's all it takes, is for some Human Being to assume authority over another for no reason at all. And then it's all downhill from there. At least it seems like that on the surface anyway. But there's always good to come out of standing up for what's right.

I have found that unless there is a clear victory to be had the fight might just not be worth it. You give up to much of yourself for nothing.

For example when my brother was to be illegally evicted from a nursing home I fought them and won. If he didn't get orange soda one day not worth a major blow out. Otherwise your health will suffer then who can you help. Bad for your adrenal glads to be constantly taxed.
