"The art of politics, under democracy, is simply the art of ringing it. Two branches reveal themselves. There is the art of the demagogue, and there is the art of what may be called, by a shot-gun marriage of Latin and Greek, the demaslave. They are complementary, and both of them are degrading to their practitioners. The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. The demaslave is one who listens to what these idiots have to say and then pretends that he believes it himself." ~ H.L. Mencken
I came from an abusive family of Christian republican sheeple. I caught hell at home and at school. While I was attending school, I never fit in with the other students. I was also forced to wear 20 year out of fashion clothes during my elementary school years. I grew up believing that something was very wrong with me!
Upon reaching adulthood, I joined the Army because I had believed all of the statist propaganda I was taught in government school. I am thankful that I never had to go to war while I was in. My first three decades of life had been quite horrible over all, but I kept searching for truth and wisdom. I had always been an avid reader, and by reading; I eventually healed myself for the most part, and I discovered anarchism as well. The changes that I went through were extremely dramatic: I now love my life very much indeed, and I am now calm and happy by default.
Homesteading, philosophy, permaculture, solar energy, integrated home design, ect.
