Life changes and disgust with the liberty movement

Two quick updates for readers follow, but first a brief challenge to those reading. I am not kidding when I ask the reader to look for flaws, to weigh and measure what I write and to always question the intent, veracity and more. Without this critical thinking no one will grow, most of all me. And so I will add a quote from my favorite author of all times, “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).” – Notebook, 1904

  1. Antonio Beuhler chose to contact me and I thanked him for that, as I told him and have made clear in many articles, though I may disagree we are all individuals and we should do what we do best. This article is simply me disagreeing with the idea of heroes or leaders in the movement for freedom that so many individuals desire these days. Rather I would suggest from personal experience, work within our communities (where we live now) to make changes through our actions (not by preaching, challenging or causing issues necessarily though that is not always without just reason) so thank you Antonio Beuhler for making that contact and doing so without angst but with a clear, realist approach.

  2. All comments should approve automatically, I have had the settings put in such a way so as to reduce the potential for spamming the blog by unscrupulous shisters. However, this has also caused consternation with some, and for good reason. Please understand, I do not edit the comments or keep them from appearing. Comments are the publics ability to disagree or agree publicly. Only when submissions for articles are made that are pro aggressive violence will I often reject those.

Recent health changes with myself personally have resulted in yet another shift in lifestyle for myself. This does not come as a shock to myself personally and will hopefully result in further future benefit for others. 1455107_10201663533643700_1594311149_n

Without boring anyone with details my ability to continue promoting other agorists and the idea of the individual has been greatly reduced. While I have attempted to get others involved this project has regretfully seen no fruition. Most within the movement are typical Americans, star struck and completely incapable or unwilling to engage in individual thought for themselves. They have taken to mimicking the typical statist approach with regards to thought itself and for that have succeeded only in reducing the position of the true individual.

Thankfully I have had the great pleasure of meeting many true individuals. Those people who question everything and everyone and for whom the status of liberty rockstar means little or nothing to them personally. While I enjoy the idea of profiting and eventually being able to completely sever ties with the state, I refuse to do as these self promoting rockstars do and abuse the trust of those around them for the sake of profit and position. 301870_4643987011244_1486831755_n

I would hope that those who questioned the state will also question as harshly the self proclaimed liberty leaders who in many cases only care about promoting their own zealous missions and will gladly turn on you and I if it means immediate profit either monetarily or otherwise. Recent and past events have shown that none of the big names in liberty are above profit at the expense of others. There is a consistent movement to use others to promote them and when they have milked the benefit of a relationship from them they quickly turn on them using over-reaching verbalizations and character assassination, we humans become quickly galvanized behind one or the other of them and rarely stop to think that maybe we should stop having rockstars and start thinking for ourselves? unnamed

I have at times supported or rejected a position taken by one or more the the various rockstars of liberty, Christopher Cantwell, Antonio Beuhler, Adam Kokesh, Stefan Molyneux, George Donelly and more. I have done both with all of the above, for the above are all individuals and while I disagree with the idea of liberty rockstars these individuals are still just human. Therefore I would hope people do learn to be critical in approach with them. Critical thinking does not need to end when you rid yourself of the state, if anything it should be far greater in frequency of use on a personal level.

Due to the incessant inane banter that exists in the various social media sites and surrounding these self proclaimed liberty heroes and the various organizations that have risen as a result of or directly supporting the idea of liberty rockstarism I will personally be pursuing a much less publicly active lifestyle. Obviously, much of this decision is related to the physical issues I have been having as well. However, because I chose to live the values I promote; a continued presence on many social networks and regular interaction with individuals who have long ago given away the ability to be critical in their thinking will simply be detrimental. 0

I learned long ago that internet debates are among the most ineffective means of getting our point across to others. I have also learned that most individuals who would rather spam links of their favorite current fad (ie rockstar) whether it be Ron Paul or Adam Kokesh have willingly become pawns as much as those they believe they are working against or to educate. Instead of utilizing their own mind and understanding what they believe they have simply become a mouthpiece for whatever new idea or philosophy is now available and popular. I reject that in my life, truth cannot become our goal when we reject the idea of critically analysing even those we greatly respect. 20121206-071950.jpg

As an individual I have often requested that those reading what I write not simply repeat back what I write or what others write or say. I often say, question me, dont accept it simply because I may have been right once before. If only one thing you get from this article please let it be the following, question ME question everything and never simply take something on its face value. Always be willing to critically analyse everything you are told and thereby through your own actions you will promote the individual far better then if you simply become an unpaid mouthpiece for any of the various liberty shysters that are out there now.

Back to the future of this blog.

It is my goal to continue writing a new article at least once a week. It is also my goal to promote knowledge freely from others who would like to share using this blog as a means to do so. So please as always feel free to email your article submissions to jesse.mathewson@hotmail.com and put Jessetalksback article in the header. I will publish all articles submitted with only one exception, if your article promotes aggressive violence it will not be published at any time. Otherwise the list of topics is really quite large, and up to you entirely. Theenc   https:  www.facebook.com theencbook

Though I would appreciate the sharing of this blog within and around the internet I will not be doing so myself following this article for awhile. I believe that freedom can only be had at the individual level and that no amount of lying, deceitful little bugs otherwise known as the self promoting useless activists who exist can do so for you. I firmly doubt that any of the above named activists will have the courage to speak to me directly (Antonio has, and the others have to date done there level best to avoid speaking with me), and all of the above named activists have rejected my attempts to do so regularly, though they enjoy using slander and the like, cowards that they are.

If however they would like to speak with me, I will extend as I always have the olive branch of reason as it is commonly defined to them. Address an email to myself at jesse.mathewson@hotmail.com please let me know who you are as I do not regularly check my junk mail and only friends and family or persons added directly go to the inbox. You may also comment here, your comments will be published in their entirety without adjustment and will remain as long as the article does.

As for my true friends and family, if you desire to get ahold of me, you know how too.

Free the mind and the body will follow.

    And here the pathology of the liberty movement begins to emerge… By embracing the idea of capitalistic individualism one does not remove hierarchy. One enforces it. The liberty movement will cannibalize itself as con artists in search of the individualist buck rise to the top like pond scum. Until you realize that the only way to eliminate the tyranny of government is to insure that all are equal in a system wherein no one leads because no one is better than anyone else you will struggle to reconcile your methods with your ideals. Inequality is not equality. It always leads to tyranny. There is no getting around it. The minute you decide you have the right to determine who “deserves” food, shelter, healthcare, education,… you consent to be part of hierarchy and you will be ruled.

    • And yet, the real deciding factor is not one deciding for another as you would have us believe. But instead it is one deciding for themselves if they should be fed or clothed or cared for. Until we take unto ourselves the responsibility of individuality no one can be free. There is no true equality for all men are not created equal instead, all men are created individuals and are equally capable of caring for themselves IF they take personal responsibility.

    “I Remember the Day.”

    I remember the day.
    Before it all went away.

    When did it all go to hell?
    I think it was when the buildings fell.

    …Do you remember ?
    That September ?

    I remember being free!
    …When I felt liberty!
    Sea to shining sea.

    Was the home of the brave.
    Today it’s freedoms grave.

    Now just tyranny thrives.
    No escape from the jails we call our lives.

    Living in cells we call our homes.
    Afraid to venture out under the nazi drones.

    Checkpoint pat-down roadblock!
    Every stop I see a cop!

    We used to make it through the day.
    Without any help from the TSA.

    Everything is now against the law.
    Guns ,gardens ,speech ,thought ,and , even milk that’s raw.

    1776 world wide!
    Because theres nowhere left to hide!

    I remember the day.
    Before it all went away.

    When did it all go to hell?
    I think it was when the buildings fell.

    Do you remember ?
    That September ?

    Absolutely. I’ve never personally viewed those within the Liberty movement as Rock Stars. Just people with opinions that I sometimes agree or disagree with.

    In my opinion people need to be more pro active in their personal lives and just start living free. Were surrounded by Statisim but that doesn’t mean we need to conform too it.

  8. Antonio Buehler here – I actually agree with everything you posted and I applaud you for it. For the record, I have never made a cent off the liberty movement. All money donated to me has gone directly to fighting police, to offset expenses I incurred fighting the state, or redirected to others for their legal costs. Good luck.

  9. We are all individual kings and queens, and liberty is best spread by focusing on our own little “kingdoms” (family). That is what I’m doing at least, and I really don’t care what anyone else thinks. My children will be warm and fed, and I’ll defend their liberty until they can do it themselves. The rest of the world? I worry not.
