To the Sinners in Power

Resiliently share this:

“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou has delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall

The Crap House

Resiliently share this:

Back in September, partly on advice of counsel, I moved from Lawrence, Kansas to Dayton, Ohio. My sister Melissa had moved here in August because she had a job waiting, and was able to secure living accommodations quickly. It seemed like a good idea to rent a house near her, and we found one that seemed good enough. To give you a sense of how it isn’t, really, all that great, let me show you the front door as seen from inside the house. Be sure to look above the door at the area which would have been called a

Abundant Water

Resiliently share this:

About twenty years ago, I began to recognise that the water provided to me in Houston through the tap was not any good. In addition to a large number of known pathogens, there were also various poisons, such as fluoride. A federal government subsidy encourages municipalities to add fluoride to their drinking water so that uranium purification contractors can off-load much of their toxic waste at a profit instead of at a cost. More recently, the scandal involving the terribly evil people involved in the city of Flint, Michigan’s government deliberately poisoning the people who live there with toxic levels

Opportunities to Improve Our World

Resiliently share this:

Last week there were several important opportunities that arose. The Individual Sovereign University gave a $500 scholarship to a student seeking to complete her degree in mathematics. We were also able to help arrange air travel on an urgent basis relating to a custody battle in Seattle area. Reports from Texas indicate that our delivery of an automobile we weren’t using to a family there has proven very useful, not only for family needs but for activism to increase freedom. Cornucopia Over the years, I have travelled on four continents, visited with thousands of people, seen palaces, museums, ghettos, wealthy

Leaving the Leviathan

Resiliently share this:

Leaving the Leviathan     Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.   The above words were written nearly 500 years ago by Étienne de La Boétie in The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude.   Sadly, every person is held captive by some form of government

Abolitionist silver pieces

Great day, long day

Resiliently share this:

Well, today was a great day for resiliency. Many good things to report. We received our first shipment of silver pieces. We posted them to our store, with an absurd price based on numismatic rarity, since they are the only 19 such pieces available to collectors, one (1) having been pre-sold; and based on our cost. We were paid a fee for some blog posts, completed some new posts for our friends at CentreGold.com – old friends from the e-gold era – and got offered shares in a new deal. Our storage unit here in Ohio is finally empty, won’t
