This movie was by far my favorite of the three. There wasn’t actually anything I disagreed with this time. None of the religious conspiracy theories. I’m very impressed, I recommend you watch it.

This is a Oiuja(pronounced “weegee”) board. It is another tool used by psychics to drowned people’s minds with ignorance.
What it is:
Bearing a name said to be derived from the French and German words for “yes,” the Ouija board is simply a flat, smooth board bearing the letters of the alphabet, numbers, and often the words “Yes,” “No,” “Maybe,” and “Goodbye.” A hand-sized, heart-shaped device perched upon three short legs, each of which has a pad or wheel to enable the instrument to slide freely across the board, is known as the plantchette. One or more operators sit around the board, each lightly resting fingers upon the top of the planchette.
What people think happens:
It is said that spirits or other super-natural entities cause the planchette to move about the board, spelling out messages and answers to questions posed by the operators.
What really happens:
This is classical example of the ideomotor effect. It is a psychological phenomenon wherein a subject makes motions unconsciously. As in reflexive responses to pain, the body sometimes reacts reflexively to ideas alone without the person consciously deciding to take action. “Automatic writing”, “dowsing”, “facilitated communication”, and oiuja boards have all been attributed to the effect of this phenomenon.
This can be easily demonstrated by the fact that when the operators are properly blindfolded, only gibberish is produced.
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
Since I have been asked so much I will now issue a formal appeal on why I made my conversion from Anarcho-Capitalism to Libertarian Socialism.
First, in-case your not entirely sure what Libertarian Socialism is, it can be summed up quite well in just one statement:
The abolition of as much hierarchy as possible.
Now my reasons:
1. The Educational System
As I have a described in one of my earlier blog-posts, I reeeally despise the system we have now. Not the matter of which it is privately or publicly funded but for the reason that most all of them being based upon “learning” via indoctrination. It does this through a coercive hierarchy. This is my single most passionate political issue and I feel the system we have now must be abolished.
2. The Vice of Manipulation
Anarcho-Capitalism is all centered around abolition of the initiation of force. While I was an Anarcho-Capitalist this seemed to me to obviously produce the most free and consequentially efficient society. But what it utterly fails to take into account is the possibility of manipulation; trickery. Lets face it, the average person is a sucker and that’s why we’re even in the mess we are now. More injustice has come out of government due to people just not knowing any better than that which has come from simply being over-powered. Voluntarism is just not enough. If we all freely decided to enter into contract with a complete dictatorship that certainly wouldn’t be in our best interest nor make us any more free. The educational system is one such manipulative entity and as such, I believe, is the Capitalist business model. The owner of a business is able to decide not to work yet also make more money than any of the workers he hires, simply because he owns the property and convinced the workers to go along with it. The richer he gets the easier it is to get richer, while the workers are left only making just enough to get by. And not to mention if they do anything against his all-righteous will than they are fired.
3. Government = Business/ Business = Government
Both governments and businesses offer a product and/or service in return for revenue. The only difference is that, IN THE CURRENT SYSTEM, governments primarily use force while business primarily use manipulation. An Anarcho-Capitalist government however does not use force, it becomes purely a business operating upon consent. But Anarcho-Capitalism again completely forgets about manipulation. If your an Anarcho-Capitalist just think about this; would you freely enter into a dictatorship? If not, than why would you enter into a business controlled absolutely by one dictatorial person? Because you need a job? Aw, well..you see in that lies the problem, they have the upper hand, you have not very much freedom at all to choose. You may ask, “Well it would be great to be in a business that wasn’t governed like a dictatorship but where would I find someone willing to make such a business?”. Aw, you see, after that I must ask you this; if you cannot find such a business than where would you find such a government? Since governments in your system have been reduced to mere businesses, this means they also have an owner; one who possesses the guns and other utilities of government. The answer is now clear even from Anarcho-Capitalist theory that revolution is in order. If no one is to make a non-dictatorial government than you must use force to make it yourself. OH NO! You may be saying now. But I say to you don’t worry, it is not an initiation of force but that of retaliation. Retaliation from what? From manipulation. In order for us to really be free we must include voluntary manipulation within our theory of force so that it can be revolted against in order to obtain more freedom. To trick someone, even though they voluntarily submit, is the same exact thing as to force them to do something they normally wouldn’t. So now I ask you; if you indeed see now as I do that businesses are also governments, even according to your very own Anarcho-Capitalist theory, will you continue to submit to it?
Comment if you have any questions or statements.
The business model we have now is highly flawed and exploitative.
How it works now is this:
A certain person has acquired money somehow. They may have earned it through work, they may have not.
They buy property to start a business. They privately own this property; only they can decide what to do with it.
If there is high consumer demand for the products this business offers than it grows larger.
The larger it grows, the harder it is to operate with less people operating it.
The owner must hire workers.
The owner hires these workers by offering them a certain amount of money from that raked in by the business.
The implication of this is that the workers are required to work harder for less money that the owner would have to if he was operating their job because he is now keeping the difference.
The owner makes more simply because he already has more. In other words; the richer you are, the easier it is to get richer. While those on the bottom remain stuck with less no matter how hard they work.
Though it operates upon voluntary consent of the workers, the workers don’t realize what is being done to them.
I will now propose a new way of doing things:
When the owner hires workers, instead of having dominion over them, the workers are given an equal share in the business.
Instead of the owner pocketing the difference, the profit would be split evenly between everyone involved.
When this happens, it not only gives the workers just as much a chance in climbing up the ladder as those that are richer but also gives the workers incentive to invest in their business which they now cooperatively own.
It’s just as good for the business as it was before except now it’s better for a much larger amount people who operate the business than it was before.
The political issue that I am single most passionate about is a reformation of the educational system.
The compulsory system we have now is based on indoctrination for achieving knowledge rather than through free-thought.
And I’m not just talking about public school, no! This includes public school, home-school and other private schools.
This is what you must learn, this is what you must not.
This is how you must learn it, this is how you must not.
This is where you must learn it from, this is where you must not.
This is when you must learn it, this is when you must not.
This is what place you must be and when you must be there and this is everything else your not aloud to do.
This is where you must sit and be quiet while you listen to the teacher who definitely knows better than you about everything.
No need to ask questions, just do what your told.
This is how much you must focus on this issue and on this one too. Who cares which things really interest you.
This is who will be teaching you, better get on their good side, this is also who will be grading you.
This is all the tedious work and mountains of pages you must fill out, as if that really teaches you anything.
This is where you come to become settled in with the rest of society.
Forget who you are and the things you desire, your one of us now.
This is the place where you come to be instilled with the glorious values of our society that will finally mold you into a good person, like obedience and loyalty and how to be content with running through the motions, OH, and lets not forget the most important one! PATRIOTISM.
Now bow-down, shut-up and get back to work you silly ignorant child.
What I advise is this:
Either upon reaching a certain age, such as ten, or proving that you have reached a basic knowledge, such as math, reading, writing, etc, you would be able to participate in the system I am to describe.
You work at your own pace, your studying hours are under your control.
You study what you want, there is no involuntary curriculum. Though you are given advice on what to learn; particularly which fields of knowledge are in high demand in the work-place.
You have free access to a giant library containing all relevant fields of inquiry. You don’t have to use these books but they are there for your convenience.
There are various teachers throughout the facility that each specialize in one or several fields. You may use these teachers if you wish but are not required.
If any teacher is inefficient at their job than they can be fired by the students through a popular vote.
Upon learning what you want, when you wanted to and from whom you wanted to, you can then ask for a test for you to be tested on specific fields of your choice.
After taking said test you will receive a certificate showing the fields you chose and how well you know them so that it may be shown to a potential employer or anything else you would wish it for.
There is no graduation date. You can update your certificate anytime you want with any fields you want on it.
The facility would also include places for the arts and sports which you are not tested on.
This new system would not only increase the standard of living by directly making lives easier on those seeking an education but also, I argue, would create a smarter and free-thinking generation that would progress the rest of society into a better future.
Do you know where the compulsory form of education we got now mostly originated from?
Nazi Germany. It was invented to indoctrinate the youth into faithful obedience of the dictatorship. Soon it’s “potential” was recognized by others and it spread to the rest of the world.
In the system we have now only old knowledge that may or may not be correct is inefficiently passed down without actually encouraging anything knew. It is only through free-thought that any knew knowledge can be gained. Your ability to memorize says only half about your intelligence. The system we have now completely forgets about nurturing ones ability to reason.
Destroy the current tyrannical indoctrination machine and we will see progress in all other political, social and scientific fields.
Let it be known that I do not necessarily agree with the views expressed in the videos below. I have provided so many for the purpose of providing different points of view and a broad context on the matter.
Now for the next series:
Now another series:
And to finish it off:
After viewing all these videos I have become very torn.
I think human nature is basically selfish. But also that selfishness is not a bad thing. That, in-fact, the right kind of selfishness is very good and is a healthy construct for morality.
I do not like Socialism because it refutes selfishness and attempts to oppress me with it’s own vision of morality; the same kind boasted by classical religion which is a pollutant of intellectual progress.
But I do not like Capitalism either because it has a foundation upon mind-control. It is merely another version of the state except that the state is authoritative through non-voluntary means whereas Capitalism is authoritative through means of indoctrination and retardation of the masses. Statism and Capitalism have the same ends except the state forces you there while Capitalism tricks you there.
A voice deep within me cries “There must be another alternative!”, but I don’t know what it is.
So for now I will say this:
Direct politics is of trivial importance. No matter what government or lack thereof you have it will still be all for nothing if you have an intellectually bankrupt people. The key to changing society for the better is not through government but through culture; through philosophy and through science.
