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.

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

"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?

A monetary realist named Merrill M.E. Jenkins wrote a book called "'Money' The Greatest Hoax On Earth." Having read the book, I liked that title so much I started thinking about language, the sounds the human mouth is capable of uttering, and the use of other dual-meaning words -- such as "God", "law", "government", "religion", etc. -- designed to confuse ignorant, gullible and naive people, (especially working-class people) so wannabe clever "political class" criminals can steal their labor without the victims realizing what was going on. That's when it occurred to me that the word "money" is not the greatest hoax on Earth. I would argue that words such as "God", "law", "government", and "religion" are even greater hoax words than "money", with "God" being arguably the greatest hoax word of all. Let's look at it.

In reality, there is no such real thing as "government". It is not a rock, a tree, a river, or even a cloud. It is mere behavior, an established social order, a dominance-based pecking order. With other animal species, it is often called "dominance hierarchy". In the case of humans, the term "social hierarchy" is more often used. As Frédéric Bastiat said, "Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else." As H.L. Mencken said, "Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods." As General Smedley Butler has written, "War Is A Racket". In reality, "government" is merely the dominant individuals in the inherently evil and inevitably corrupting stupid-human pecking order struggle known as "politics". These disordered-by-definition dominant individuals merely call themselves "government" so the hoi polloi masses will view them as being intelligent enough and moral enough to follow and obey.

Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. In other words, "politics" = manipulation. That's all it is. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver/manipulator, and why "political" = deception-based, manipulation-based, and/or having to do with deception and/or manipulation.

According to Phonetics: The Sounds of Language, by Michael Dobrovolsky and Francis Katamba, "a very wide range of sounds is found in human language (600 consonants and 200 vowels, according to one estimate)." That's a lot of sounds!
