Resilient Ways: Imagine a free world …

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

Rubanisation – Rethinking of how we live, work, learn, play and farm

Resiliently share this:

Mu Aye Pu will be designed by visionary architect Kheng Soon Tay based on his innovative rubanization concept. Rubanisation is a re-conceptualization of human settlements in which the city and the countryside are considered as one space, not two as it is now – city and countryside are regarded as separate realms. Rubanisation stems from the belief that the continued consideration of the rural and the urban as two distinct realms is unsustainable in terms of social justice, cultural justice and environmental justice. This mode of thinking calls for a new spatial geometry of integrated development that offers real viable

Afterword by Dan Sullivan

Resiliently share this:

Back to index … I am writing this as explanation of my motives in this endeavor … Normally an “afterword” is written by someone that isn’t the author, and it is generally reserved for works of fiction. This is not a work of fiction, but rather an expression of hope – a desire to live in a free world. Since I am technically the co-author of this document, I am writing this to provide some explanation – some sense of “where Dan is coming from”. Firstly, you should know that I am a recent formal convert to anarchism – I’ve
