    Working 2 eat is the innate function of all unique humans. In this paradigm we slave for printed paper. Freedom is taking courage and leaving the status quo and working..and eating for yourself..this is not anarchy..but freedom.

    Right on thats what I say to everyone I meet how did man become the servant of a construct ie government , something we created for our benefit to serve us all has become our master .Men sitting in parliaments writing laws for other men something they have no power to do , all men are equal and are subject to one law natural or common law principals . we created government to do the big collective thing so as to improve everyone’s quality of life and to defend peoples natural rights and freedoms and instead it has turned into an instrument to make people homeless jobless and an alter for human sacrifice for sick twisted ideologies and criminals and with the technology age I fear things are about to get much worse. Love your channel cheers from Australia

    at the time of the greek, anarchy meant chaos, but then the greek realized that not having a king wasn’t the problem, but the existence of the position of a king was the the problem, which is why they create the democratic state to replace the position of the king, which solved the problem, and since then anarchy no longer means chaos

    western democracies are not ruled by a single person; western democracies are anarchies

      Michiel Van Kets In a sense, they are anarchal….until a bunch of cabals and corporations with the same agenda infiltrate and control all the inner workings of that democracy. Then you just become bought and sold serfs to an all-powerful state yet again…which is us today. So no anarchy.

      Oh, and in America, we aren’t supposed to be a “de-mob-racy”…supposed to be a Constitutional Republic. Most of our founders rejected democracy as the whims of the majority could over rule the rights of the minority. Quite obviously, we failed to maintain that Republic to today.

    • Michiel Van Kets democracy has become dictatorship masked as democracy

      Hahaha, western democracy is fascism

    • “An” from greek meaning ‘without’ or ‘in the absence of’ and “archy” also greek meaning “ruler(s)”… it means and has always meant, without rulers, there is another word for that state of existence … FREEDOM.

    Anarchy is our Garden of Eden.

      Explicit Tech Anarchy is like communism. It only works when everyone involved aren’t greedy, corrupt, and want to play fair and have equal concern for everyone else around them. It only works out well when everyone is of the same mind and on the same page with each other.

      It’s all a pipe dream as that’s not how the world works nor is it ever how the world/people works. Like communism, anarchy chooses to completely ignore the reality of human nature which at its core (for those whom choose not to fight that urge…which is the large majority of people) is survival under any circumstance. And that always entails greed, unfairness, gaming the system, tyranny, etc

      The literal, best form of “government” that any human could ever hope to realistically acheive (and one could argue the closest to an anti-statist leaning, anarchy) is the pure form of the American Constitutional Republic.

      ….but as humans always do time and again….we slipped away from that almost perfect form and devolve into laziness, complacency, and degenerate tendencies to our own demise. Our founders already knew this and fully expected a bloody revolution every few generations or so to maintain this Republic. We’ve been way overdue since the last one….

      I believe, unfortunately, it’s a base human nature to exist in some form of statism. Even if it’s statism light…still a form of it. Anarchy has been and always will be a transitional phase between different forms of statism/government. Anarchy is not a steady “state” of being. The universe naturally always looks for some form of stasis (statism) and equalibrium. It creates, then destroys, then again brings order out of that chaotic anarchy to create anew again.

      I was all about anarchy in my teens. Then I grew up and saw the actual world of tyrants we live in.

    We aren’t born anarchists. We are born into a totalitarian environment called ‘Dad and Mom’, until, hopefully, we are lovingly ‘governed’ into being responsible adults. For all of those who didn’t figure out how to get there, I’m very happy to have jails and prisons, and a government that will take over educating them in the concepts of responsibility and respect for other peoples’ rights.

    Voluntarism is the answer.

  11. Whats the point of having rules if someone is going to not follow it? It makes no sense what youre saying. They could have rules that says no killing and one person could say I want to be able to kill people and he should be able to do so? Not sure if i’m following you here Jeff

    • No that would not be OK because that breaks natural law, natural law is the law of nature, it states we have the right to take an action that does not result in harm or defraudment of another, raping and molesting children breaks this law and therefore everyone in society has the “authority” to prevent this sort of behavior from carrying on. Natural law is extremely simple even children an animals can understand it, truth always is simple, unlike mans law which is so complex almost no one understands it fully. I think if you spent some time around some anarchists you would be pleasantly surprised.

      greveen, it’s called the non aggression principal, do no harm. Anarchists also believe in self defence,
      and accountability. Why do we need people called government with a monopoly on unaccountable
      violence? There is nothing done by government that isn’t illogical or unethical, government is a system to
      give psychopaths control over the rest of our lives. Anarchy existed in Ireland for 9000 years.

    • Gadsden Viper but who decides what is considered harm? What would you base your morals and ethics on?

    • I can highly recommend strapping in and listening to this video, it holds some very … very … important truths.

  12. Jeff, you should not say money but currency. They have printed a lot of currencies. Money is a store of value, currencies are not.

    I don’t agree with everybody is a born anarchist, your parents or caretakers are your rulers until you grow up, and just because someone else made the rules it doesn’t necessarily mean its bad for you… The world became a very complex place to live in, and the average person won’t have a clue how to live in such a place without anyone telling what the rules are…

  14. If I was inflating the world’s money, I would literally print it. That way, I could set up some ominous lighting in the printing press and stand in front of the machines as the dollar bills fly out, with my arms in the air with clutched fists laughing maniacally towards the sky. I might even install a smoke machine.

    Nice etymology: the word government means “mind control.” Makes things much clearer!

    It’s like you say the things I say but in a more smarter way, and your really humble. Keep on keeping on brotha!

    The 99% of Statist are victims with Stockholm Syndrome for their 1% rulers .
