How Occupy Wall St. Could Succeed

by august

The thousands of protesters in New York and cities around the world are likely to achieve nothing if they continue down their current course. Instead of calling themselves “the other 99%,” they should adopt the tagline “the odds are 99-to-1.”

The protesters have not realized that all of the issues they want to address are only symptoms of a deeper problem. The singular objective should be the abolition of the state.

SWAT team raids: Overkill fit only for a police state

"Back in the heyday of Stalin’s USSR, the very hallmark of its totalitarianism was the dreaded 'midnight knock on the door,' in which the police simply hauled people away, sometimes never to be seen again and often for reasons unrevealed to relatives and acquaintances of the person abducted. To this terrifying scenario, the American state has added the excitement of flash grenades, broken windows, battered doors, and often unnecessary gunfire. This rampant, gratuitous police violence is, to put it mildly, totally out of order in a place that many Americans continue to insist -- however bizarrely -- is a free society." http://ping.fm/ppBaI

Anonymous' 3GB leak spotlights racist Texas law enforcement emails. Is racial hate and religious intolerance something the U.S. Justice Department approves of for those who are tasked with upholding justice? Every American who believes in liberty should be horrified, and alarmed. How many other peace officers think like this and is it hindering their ability to impartially enforce the law. This is yet more evidence that government monopolies of violence (police departments, military, sheriffs, etc.) must be abolished! As it is right now, cops are nothing but legalized mobsters.

To put it simply, America is nearing a checkmate scenario. Like the final torrid maneuvers of a rigged chess match, we have been pressed, manipulated, and attacked into the last remaining corner of the “grand global chessboard” left to us; centralized control of all social and economic power into the hands of an unworthy elite... Our only recourse is to STOP relying on the rules of their game, and to walk away from the chess board completely.

Yubia: Permanent Autonomous Zone

Yubia is a Permanent Autonomous Zone located in the Sierra Nevada range of Northern California.

The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) is the guiding ethic of Yubia. The State (government) and its attendant use of coercion and violence, is eschewed in favor of peaceful voluntary transactions and cooperative efforts.

The people of Yubia are a free, independent and community-minded people who wish to be free of statist politics, bureaucracies and regulation. We are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society.

The concept for Yubia is influenced by Zomia, the politically autonomous region in Southeast Asia, James C. Scott’s The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia, the writings of Hakim Bey, and the concept of swaraj or self-rule, as propounded by Mohandas K. Gandhi.

A Legal Strategy for Immediately Creating Private Free Cities

In April 2011, the first Future of Free Cities conference was on the tropical island of Roatán in Honduras. The event brought together thinkers, educators and leaders from around the world for a series of high-level discussions that focused on how to establish successful politically autonomous communities.

A growing Interest in free cities continues to develop as the model of State Corporatism crumbles around us and people begin to recognize their individual and collective power to expand the concept individual liberty throughout the world.

The Future of Free Cities website can be found at freecity.ufm.edu

In this video excerpt from the conference, Kevin Lyons of Consent Unlimited explains how to use state-of-the-art technology and institutional design to dramatically lower the cost of consent-based "opt-in" contracts that can displace inefficient and unjust government mandated rules throughout the economy and society. The consent documentation and certification features he has designed is scalable from single contract clauses to broad contractual networks, with choice of law and arbitration venues. When merged with private land, a Private Free City™ can be created with the potential to deliver good law at low enough cost for the masses around the world: http://newmedia.ufm.edu/gsm/index.php/Lyonstrategy

Oh no...healthy food! Federal Thugs raid Rawesome Foods

If there is any doubt left in your mind, let's be clear: war has been declared by the Federal Government on the People.

Experiencing its second attack within a year, Rawesome Foods, a whole and raw foods buying club located in Venice, California was raided by federal, state and local agencies today for selling healthy food. Apparently the agri-business owned and controlled USDA, FDA, and CDC don't want common people profiting on their exclusive turf, so what do they do but shut down all competition. It's exactly how the Mob works.

This is yet another perfect example of why the Federal Government must be dismantled. They are clearly not in the business of protecting people -- their only concern is protecting their corporate masters.

Multi-agency armed raid hits Rawesome Foods, Healthy Family Farms for selling raw milk and cheese on NaturalNews.

Rawesome Food raid videos begin to emerge from the scene where federal terrorists vandalized raw milk business

Donations to the Rawesome Foods legal defense fund are currently being accepted at the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center: www.ConsumerWellness.org

Remember Kelly Thomas, cop victim.

Remember Kelly Thomas, murdered by scum cops, AKA the Fullerton Police Department.

We will not forgive. We will not forget.

As an institution, the police do not exist to defend life, liberty, and property. That would be the role played by peace officers -- a population that is, for all intents and purposes, extinct. Police are given the task of “enforcement” – the imposition of rules devised by, and on behalf of, the wealth-devouring class. That role includes dispensing summary punishment against people who display anything other than instant, unqualified submission to them and to the political order they embody. Any material good that is done by a police officer is a renegade act, given the nature and purposes of the institution that employs him.

Everyday Anarchy

A free e-book by Stefan Molyneux


The word “anarchy” does not mean “no rules.” It does not mean “kill others for fun.” It does not mean “no organization.”

It simply means: “without a political leader.”

The difference, of course, between politics and every other area of life is that in politics, if you do not obey the government, you are thrown in jail. If you try to defend yourself against the people who come to throw you in jail, they will shoot you.

So – what does the word “anarchy” really mean?

It simply means a way of interacting with others without threatening them with violence if they do not obey.

It simply means “without political violence.”

How to Smash the State

By Fred Woodworth from the July 1971 issue of The Match!

The sentiment is widespread – the slogan has been tirelessly repeated, but almost nothing has been said about what actually can be done to “smash the State”. Here are a few practical suggestions:

Refuse to work for any agency, department, or bureau of government. Disaffiliate yourself from any employment that furthers coercion, no matter what form. Forget about trying to “change from within”; sure you have to make a living, but if you’re working in a government research laboratory or a Selective Service office, your efforts aid, not hinder, government control. Remember – the State desperately needs to co-opt your talents. If you and thousands like you resigned, far more good could be accomplished than by furthering authoritarianism in fact while opposing it in theory. Build alternatives to the present form of society.

Actively resist the State’s domination over you in whatever ways you are able. But don’t feel guilty when you find there are too many injustices for you to fight them all. The State should feel guilty, not you. Do what you can.

Continually improve your ability to express yourself in at least one language. Strive after perfection in the usage of your native tongue. Learn it well and use it often. It is your one friend, your basic tool, and your fluency and persuasiveness in it will ultimately determine whether or not your ideas are accepted by the people.

Write write write write write. Constantly write and speak to get your thoughts before a wide audience. Set forth what you have to say in as understandable a form as you can contrive. Don’t be afraid to reiterate; the diffuse genius with scores of ideas he expresses once only, will be overlooked and lost in obscurity. The persistent man who expresses, restates, enlarges upon, and expounds his single thought – he stands a chance of being heard. Incessant repetition and doggedness elevates mediocre or false ideas to the stature of truth, and low, mean men to high positions. Now let’s use the technique to get rid of them.

If you oppose authority, you are an Anarchist. The implements of your trade are the typewriter and the printing press. Ignore the secret police provocateurs who will try to persuade you to take up bombs and guns against the State. If every Anarchist in the world killed twenty government agents and dynamited $100,000 worth of government offices, all that would happen would be that every Anarchist in the world would be sentenced to death. The State would not be deflected even an iota from its normal patterns. But with the typewriter and the printing press, you can manufacture articles far more deadly and effective than bombs. Buy a mimeograph machine and learn how to use it. Long after the smoke and destruction of a bomb is forgotten, products of your imagination and creativity can live on, making tiny explosions inside people’s minds.

Running through the streets screaming unintelligibly; giving the clenched fist salute and yelling “power to the people” – are superb gestures. For the insane. But if you think about it, the very thing we want to end is “power”, at least power of people over other people. So a slogan like “power to the people” (What power? Which people? Power to do what? To whom?) essentially has no meaning. Too inexact. And even if it did have any meaning, shrieking and howling it through the streets at night in a mob would be a next to worthless way of communicating that meaning. It might be even worse than worthless, because some individuals who might have taken you seriously will now dismiss you and your ideas as idiocy. Who knows? Maybe they’re right. Reject the pigs who call for trashing and looting. Nine of ten such episodes end in punishment for innocent people, while the pigs who caused it all get safely away. Even if anything does come down on the guilty, they just rip off their friends to pay the fine, or bail or whatever. They never suffer. In fact, they’re probably chortling all the way to the FBI office. Keep away from such people if you really want to smash the State.

Never neglect your education. Learn as much as you can about as many subjects as you can – avoid writing or speaking in ignorance. If you have no idea what’s inside a computer, don’t spout reams of theory about what computers can do or you may be wrong. If you can’t produce a coherent explanation of how an electric doorbell works, don’t extol the virtues of technology, or you may be made to appear ridiculous. Talk about subjects you know, otherwise you will only do harm.

Thoroughly dissect and expose the numberless inconsistencies of governmental theory. Hammer away at the State’s lies, false assurances, mistakes, stupid errors and injustices. The time hasn’t quite arrived when back numbers of newspapers and magazines are altered daily to conform to a legislated view of reality; hence, though politicians strive frantically to maintain an air of infallibility, we can still point out how their hasty, expedient prognostications of yesteryear have not yet been borne out by subsequent facts.

Oppose religion wherever and however possible. When at long last deistic superstition vanishes from the face of the earth, the States of the world will have lost their principal mode of effecting and enforcing subservience and abject humility. Erasure of religion’s mind-befuddling contradictionism will enable individuals to live without fear and psychosis, freely interacting and accepting responsibility for their own actions.

Always fight on your own battlefield. Refuse to be drawn into disadvantageous conflict planned and stacked against you. If pigs stop you when you are alone and push you and call you names, flash a glassy smile and say nothing. Why fight when and where they choose? Wait till you get to the place of your choosing – the typewriter, printing press, or microphone, for instance; then hit them with all you’ve got. If they try to beat you at your own game, they will be as much at a disadvantage as you were in theirs. Basic logic patterns and language fluency you have developed can cast pigs into ridicule and annihilate them.

At some time you will discover that an associate close to you is a secret police agent. People you thought were friends will slowly reveal themselves as latent politicians or thieves trying to rip off movement funds. Don’t tremble or become discouraged – fight on – write on.

Never trust anyone. Nobody but you can be depended upon to carry out projects you conceive, so learn how to do everything yourself. That way, no matter if everyone abandon you, all will continue as before. Propaganda will roll on with no lessening of intensity, and the Anarchist idea will be broadcast without even a moment’s dead air.

Intensify your life. Struggle to cut down on the amount of time you lose by sleeping. Naturally one must rest, but an extra hour of working time a day adds up to more than a whole extra day each month, more time available than most so-called “anarchists” put in during a year of do-nothing ego-trips. Using time wisely, a single fanatic can equal or surpass the efforts of an entire organization of whimps.

Work selflessly and untiringly, give everything you can, do whatever is in your power to aid those unjustly imprisoned by the State. Know, however, that when you are imprisoned, inevitable in this totalitarian society, you and your efforts will be forgotten, and you will languish abandoned.

So live every day as though it is your last. Save time out to look at the trees and stars; to consider what you are doing; to reaffirm your committment to the world of ideas, to propaganda, to non-violence – to Anarchism!

The world will be little changed for what you do. Your work will be misunderstood and grossly misrepresented. You will be detested. But you are smashing the State.

Don’t ever give up.
