Welcome.

The premises of this website are self-ownership1, individualism, voluntaryism, decentralization (à la Ralph Borsodi), simplicity, self-sufficiency, sustainability (à la Scott Nearing (see also HERE and HERE) and Charles Walters) and monetary realism (à la Merrill M.E. Jenkins). (See also video.) Our steadfast mission: "Changing the world, and the culture, one mind at a time!"

"IN A TIME OF DECEIT, TELLING THE TRUTH IS A REVOLUTIONARY ACT." — George Orwell

Computer technology and the Internet have changed everyday life for the better. Nobel literature prize winner Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio has been credited with saying, "Who knows, if the Internet had existed at the time, perhaps Hitler's criminal plot would not have succeeded — ridicule might have prevented it from ever seeing the light of day."

The goal of this mashup-type website is to lay the philosophical groundwork for self-education in Individualism, Voluntaryism and Anarcho-Christianity, and become a major grassroots information and education resource by providing easy access to a wide range of self-help and self-sufficiency information (see especially the "links" section) not always quickly found on the web, especially in one convenient place.

John's Blog (& Archive)

Fighting against the Grand Globalist's Evil Empire online, and standing against the Vestigial Dinosaur Media's (VDM) Orwellian spin in the Great Culture Wars. Too much fun!

As actor Liam Neeson said in the movie "Michael Collins", "I hate them for making hate necessary." Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, name calling, ad hominem, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential.

Law enforcement's criminal conspiracy to violate David Cox's civil rights

Let me start by saying this essay is in effect an alternative-media op-ed piece consisting 100% of my opinion articulated in political and parody speech, which is NOT to be construed as anything other than educational, and which is specifically protected by the 1st Amendment and by Article II, Section 10 of the Colorado Constitution which says:
"Section 10. Freedom of speech and press. No law shall be passed impairing the freedom of speech; every person shall be free to speak, write or publish whatever he will on any subject, being responsible for all abuse of that liberty; and in all suits and prosecutions for libel the truth thereof may be given in evidence, and the jury, under the direction of the court, shall determine the law and the fact."

Mesa County's "Good Old Boy" duopoly corruptocracy has had its way for entirely too long. SOMEBODY has to try to bell the cat. Somebody has to grit their teeth, suck it up, say "the Emperor is a criminal scumbag who has no clothes," and let the political chips fall where they may. David Cox is a friend of mine, so I guess the task falls to your humble author.

This is a hard story to write, precisely because there are so many apparently disconnected dots to connect in the mind of any interested reader/s. The best way to expose the wannabe-clever criminal manipulations of cutesy pie government criminals who are trying to cover their tracks is to deconstruct their web of deceit line by line, sentence by sentence, and paragraph by paragraph, and compare the acts and conditions they are alleging about the person they are trying to destroy with the actual language of the controlling statutes, the controlling case law and provable documented facts. The method I chose to do that was with a series of lettered (A, B, C, D, etc) logically titled subsections. As any good lawyer can tell you, the facts of any given case determine what law applies to that case. (Please feel free to copy and/or quote all or any part of this essay/tutorial and distribute it as far and wide to as many people as possible.)

Random thoughts on Fisk v. Delta

Being a 1st Amendment absolutist in the school of Thomas Jefferson and William O. Douglas, I found the the story about Cidney Fisk's lawsuit against Delta County School District 50J, et al, absolutely fascinating.

For a non-lawyer, I have done quite a bit of research on the 1st Amendment and related case law, as might be ascertained from the "Legal Disclaimer" page of this website, so, for me, trying to find the line between a student's right to express her opinion, and a teacher's right to control the classroom, teach the curriculum and prevent counterproductive disruptions is an extremely interesting exercise.

The story that first got me interested in this case appeared in the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, was titled "Atheist student sues Delta schools", and was written by Erin McIntyre.

What got me going was the way the story was written. It left out WAY too much of the most interesting information, and, in my opinion, leaned too much toward the world view of the religion-hating Freedom From Religion Foundation without being transparent about the wannabe-subtle propaganda.

Dialogues with Sophie

I want you to meet my friend, Sophistia, or "Sophie" for short. Her real name is Claudette Konola, and, in my opinion, she has made herself pretty much a public person1, in other words a "politician2", which means she is legally fair game for parody treatment. (See, e.g., Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46 (1988).) She is also one of the Mesa County Patriots' (MCP) most popular prog/lib trolls, and appears fairly regularly to contribute her sophistry to the MCP posts.

Lately, she has been trolling my MCP posts and contributing her sophistic remarks even though I have asked her at least two or three times not to do that because, I didn't think we had anything to offer each other. She basically ignored my requests, so I decided to have some fun and start talking with her about pretty much whatever she wants to talk about. Who knows, we might actually become honest-to-goodness friends (although I admittedly won't be holding my breath)!

My response to Anne Landman and the so-called "atheists and free thinkers" of Western Colorado

On 7/21/17, the Daily Sentinel ran a story titled "Atheist group objects to prayer, wants officials to ‘get to work’" written by Erin McIntire.

Has anybody besides me had their fill of Anne Landman and the local so-called “atheists and free thinkers”? It is not all that hard to conclusively prove that they are neither free nor anything but shallow thinkers.

First of all, many (if not a majority) of history's greatest scientific minds were theists/deists. Why? Because they were less intelligent than Landman et al? Don't make me laugh.

Let's talk some real “nitty gritty” reality here.

First of all nobody KNOWS diddley squat about how or why the universe and/or human beings came into existence. How do I know that Landman and the laughably-named “free thinkers” don't know diddley squat? Easy. Because I myself don't know diddley squat and, like Diogenes looking for his “honest man”, I've spent much of my life trying to “know myself” and “searching for the truth”. I've read countless books by countless people light years smarter than Landman et al. I have been graced with considerable intellectual curiosity which enables me to easily recognize a lack of same in others, especially pain-in-the-ass, blow-hard, fascistic leftists and other collectivist propagandists.

The WAR on Reality: How globalists occupy your mind to control everything ~ by Mike Adams

Here is a mini-documentary which is of such extreme importance that it desperately needs to be seen by every American, indeed, by every person on Earth. In an attempt to help it be "viraled" all across the Internet, I decided to feature it in a blog so I could use it as a sort of footnote by linking to it as a reference whenever possible.

The article on the Natural News website is titled "The WAR on Reality: Mind-expanding mini-documentary from the Health Ranger rips to shreds the social engineering and 'belief control' manipulation of the masses"

You can also watch the documentary on The Health Ranger's YouTube channel, where it is titled "The War on Reality: How globalists occupy your mind to control everything."

(NOTE: For the reader's convenience, your humble transcriber included references to the points in time in the video where the various quoted segments occurred.)

Mesa County's Rampant Social Security Fraud and Judicial Corruption – Isn't It Time To Recall the Commissioners En Masse?

By John Wilkenson

(Note: Interested persons can read Part 1 of this exposé HERE and/or HERE.)

This exposé/essay is in part a citizen's indictment of corrupt government, and, in part, an experiment to see if internet/computer technology and citizen journalism -- (BE THE MEDIA!) -- can win a political contest against the VDM (vestigial dinosaur media, aka "MSM") and the duopoly (GOP/DEM) establishment corruptocrats who have a political stranglehold on Mesa County. It is an exercise in 1st-Amendment-protected political/opinion speech. For all those individuals who like to incessantly whine to their friends about Mesa County's corrupt "Good Old Boy" (GOB) gang while doing nothing of real effect/impact to correct the situation, I (your humble author/editor) very much need your help in getting the truth out about the systemic "circling of the wagons" to cover up local judicial felonies1. You can help by sharing this exposé/essay with every Mesa County resident/voter you know. Please feel free to copy and disseminate all or any part of it.

Hemp Aggregation

“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls who live under tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

There are two main purposes for this aggregation of "hemp" information: 1) for my own quick-reference use (as is the case with my other aggregations, and 2) to radically reduce online research time for any interested people who happen to stumble across this website. By making these kinds of aggregations, I don't have to spend nearly as much time searching for information which I might have forgotten to archive in my system of folders, files and bookmarks.

(DISCLAIMER: America's corrupt police-state government1 would probably want me to repeat the disclaimer I found on another "alternative wellness" website: "All information presented on this web-site is for educational, entertainment, and historical purposes only. It is not intended to diagnose or treat any illness or medical condition. Never forgo seeing a doctor when ill. Most are skilled diagnosticians and know what works to treat illnesses, especially acute ones. Even minor health problems can quickly become life threatening if not treated or treated improperly. It is a lot easier to rebuild from a round of prescription medicine than from unchecked infection. complementary health measures are for prevention, failure of conventional treatment, or as an adjunct treatment with permission of your health professional." "This Web site contains links to Web sites operated by other parties. Such links are provided for your convenience and reference only. We are not responsible for the content or products of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site." Having done my "legal" duty, let me say that I have always despised the type of wannabe-politically2-cutesy immoral scum3 who believe they are somehow entitled to use the coercive/violent power of One Ring "government1" to create monopolies and captive markets with which to artificially, and very fraudulently, increase the value of their own time and labor relative to the time and labor of the rest of humanity. To permanently settle the hash of two such groups of scum3 will, in my opinion, require a Judicial Reform Amendment and a Freedom of Self-Medication Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.)

Religion Aggregation

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi

There are two main purposes for this aggregation of religious information: 1) for my own quick-reference use (as is the case with my other aggregations, and 2) to radically reduce online research time for any interested people who happen to stumble across this website. By making these kinds of aggregations, I don't have spend nearly as much time searching for information which I might have forgotten to archive in my system of folders, files and bookmarks.

"Religion" is another one of those so-unspecific-as-to-be-useless-for-anything-but-obfuscation-and-manipulation dual-purpose deception-based words such as "God", "law", "government", "money", "secular", etc. The key to understanding these obfuscatory dual-purpose (i.e. good-evil) words is being able to recognize the difference between when they are being used to mean self-ownership and when they are being used to mean feudalistic "government" ownership/control over B by A. In other words, does "religion" mean that you own yourself, your labor, and the produce of your labor? Or does "religion" mean I (or some group of "politicians") get to run your life and you have to do what I say? Does "religion" mean that "God" wants that I should be king (or president, or mullah, or poobah, etc) and that you should do what I say?
