It seems to be absurd to pay for the things existed originally ,such as land,water,wood,etc.But it will be disordered if we get everything free,right?

had to flag and star...

If anyone here that agrees and likes the OP, but you knock Anarchism... think again, this is the TRUE Anarchist's ideal... and it is more of "Why do I have to work for an entire day,for an entire month, for an entire year, for what seems forever, or at least most of my life, just to stay alive?"

Why do I put my self in harmful, potentially life threatening situations, on a daily basis, to make a minimal amount of money to exchange for my own life? Why do I have to work for half my life to afford a piece of land so I can get off the grid, only to have to work after all to KEEP that land.

You can run all day with this train of thought. I do. I see my boss take off to go fishing with all his other millionaire buddies and it really jerks me. Basically, the "Trickle-Down Effect" is, has been, and always will be BS. Hoarding doesn't exclude money. I've meet so many rich people who hoarded money. Some wouldn't even put it in the bank, they just hoarded it, even living like hobos. When the hoarding stops, the sharing starts, then EVERYONE will live in peace. Until then, we keep hoarding ideas, wealth, supplies, and we hate the other for doing it, but we do it ourselves out of fear that real hoarders will steal and hoard. In Chess, it's called a "Stalemate".

Pretty much I am a vegan.

fyi: The only three days of lost time I had was when they tried to train me to cut off the heads of chickens.

I went catotonic for three days. I fainted and could not care for myself for three days after the first chicken was decapitated. I don't remember any of this.

My doctor says I need some protein, so I eat very little. I wish I could go totally vegan.

Wake up - you are being taken advantage of.

Your credit cards..............wake the frak up.

okay, why do we have to pay all the taxes we have to pay to live on a planet we were born on?

I'm talking just plain taxes - who decided these taxes and why?

Simple question.

Land, who deciced to "own it?"

Being awake is a confusing, maybe even terrifying experience to some, to others it is pure Joy, a liberation of the soul.

What comes with being "Awake" is the realisation that you are responsible for your own actions. What do you do with this new power. It is so awesome, one might think it best to put it back in its box and continue letting others guide their life.

Here is your instruction manual.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

This isn't a religious creed. It is the basic Truth on which all religions were formed, and later corrupted by man. It is a scientific fact that when two opposing forces collide, their destruction is inevitable. Man, each of us, is a destructive force without adherence to this basic truth. It is the purpose of our free Will. We must choose to give each other room for all of our perspectives and respect each other. As a species dependant on each for our survival, it is more than respect. We must love each other as we love ourselves.

Do you not feel it in your core? Do you not want to be loved above all else?

It is the tie that binds us. It is the string that makes us one. Religiously or scientifically, we all have a part to contribute to our survival.

We are at a pivotal moment in time My Brothers and Sisters. Our awakened state will either destroy us as our untamed passions run wild over this earth. Or we can subdue them and love each other, throw off our chains of captivity, and proudly proclaim

I AM (your unique self)
King of Kings (Sovereign of yourself amongst sovereigns of themselves)
I am here to reclaim my Kingdom (Free of the governments and judgements which have bound you for ages).

Think on it Brothers and Sisters

Can we do better than what we have done so far?

With Love,

Your Brother

I didnot want a king or ruler..................I had no say so.

Our rulings should be by majority rule, not a dictator or king.

Because "we let the wisemen beat the drums too soon"

Nobody owns the earth. The people who claim to own any part of it, stole it. Stole it from the natives or later stole it from the people through a banking scam. I say if you got in power by evil means, your power is null and void. If you take my house by collapsing my economy, I'll squat in my own home, you can't have it, and if you try to take it I'll kill you. Stand your ground and fight to the death. It's all we have left. There's more of us than them anyway.

Alex Collier posed a really good question. From my independent research I have found that it is a control mechanism. What most people don't know is that there is a hidden source for control, chaos and war on this planet. The source is manipulation by ETs. My research is available for anyone to read free of charge on *Snip*

Also, as far as the US is concerned, President George Washington and Secretary of State Alexander Hamilton--both Freemasons--were the first ones to impose an internal tax on the American people. It was called the "Whiskey Rebellion" and Freemason George Washington assembled a militia of 13,000 armed troops, including his Masonic Generals, to go out and kill the farmers that were brewing hooch that they used as money--that is, something to barter with.

Freemason Hamilton admitted that the tax was intended “more as a measure of social discipline than as a source of revenue”[1] and he “wanted the tax imposed to advance and secure the power of the new federal government.”[2] In other words it was about power and control.

Unfortunately, George Washington set a precedent that it was okay for the federal government to kill Americans if they wouldn't pay to live here and accept "involuntary servitude" (which is prohibited in the 13th Amendment).

Fortunately, the people revolted against this internal tax and this Freemason conspiracy failed. Unfortunately, though, the Freemasons/Illuminati didn't give up and I don't need to point out all the "internal taxes" that people have to pay today. As I discovered in my research it was ETs who created these secret societies in the first place.

I got the references below from an article about the Whiskey Rebellion by Murray Rothbard on the Lew Rockwell website.

1. Oxford History of the United States by Samuel Morrison, p.182

2. Federal Income Taxation: Principles and Policies, p.4 (2005)

To stole something you need that thing to be owned first.

So your argument is pretty absurd, if someone stole the land from the natives, that mean the natives where the owners, so that about nobody owns the earth doesnt make sense.

Here's my view of how it all came about... I'm probably wrong in many areas, but I
think my 'drift' of it is near the mark.

Imagine our species at the beginning.
You're born and used to the safety of your Mother and some other who occasionally
shows up and provides you with food. Food... that one thing that makes the body
override any modern-day thoughts that we wallow in today.
The world around you is bright and then suddenly it becomes dark, the night time is
when we huddle together and wait for that blessed thing we call daylight.
We wait wide-eyed for the strange sounds and the predators to stop their moving
around and terrible calls. In that wait, we feel safety in our numbers and some of us
sleep... a time to rest our bodies and our terrified minds.

We know there is safety in numbers and as we grow, we know that some of our number
are braver than others and stand guard, even dare to drive off any intruding night creature.
We come to rely on those who watch out for us.
For their bravery... and usually because they are more aggressive than the rest of the pack
AND because we want them to be fit and strong, they get the 'lion's share' of the food
acquired by the group.
We move on through time.

Tributes:
Gifts of what we assume are valuable are given to our brave ones. They can strategise and
plan against possible invaders, they let others dwell in the timid world where the 'bad things'
out there don't enter, they guard against the enemy.
Shiny trinkets, strange coloured stones and rich food are laid at the feet of our benevolent
guardians, hell... it's easier to farm than to fight -say some and so the perception is set in
stone that we need them more than they need us.

As our tribes merge and we become more reliant on those who lead... (the pool of so-called
warriors is diluted now by those who force with their views and not their brute strength)... we
continue to follow and the tributes become more and more intricate.
By now, we've agreed that a certain token will pass as a guarantee for the old tributes, so
notes of trust are used instead of chickens and bales of straw. That token is destined to
become the most influential object in our world.

It is built on trust and the irony is that it's acquired by many using mistrust. We almost
worship it.
We would die without it. As mankind moves off into industrial areas and starts to make
the land around him work more and more for him, he loses sight of his true self.
He herds the people together and by offering them that 'golden calf' of money, they begin
to work and the self-satisfying feel of acquiring ones own food falls away, we become
dependent on the boss, the head-honcho... the leader.

Our leader tells the masses that what they've become accustomed to needs a constant
input of money... the world that they used to forage in as long gone and now being top of
the food-chain, we've got to try harder and go further.
The leader will keep the lights on, he will make sure food is available and he also assures
us that the sick and old will not be left out to endure a lonely winter.
How can we refuse?

Our leaders seems to obtain the status of a God, they see all, they watch out for us at
night when we sleep... and they feed us. All we have to do his the mundane tasks like work
and give them some of our share... not a bad price to pay -we convince ourselves.

So here we are.
We sit at our computers, not a computer that you have ran after and caught on some
dusty plain not a machine built with your own hands, but the one provided by... (whether
you believe it or not)... by our leaders.
We grumble that these 'better-peers' are taking too much food or too many shiny baubles...
and they are, but this is the way it's been for a long time.
Many of these leaders do try, do watch for the intruder, but more-and-more sit and caress
the monies and jewels with a smugness of knowing nothing will ever change.

There are those who lead and those who follow.
