Stefan Molyneux at Libertopia 2010

Stefan gives a fantastic speech on anarchy. Humorous and intense, worth watching.

What a brilliant orator that guy is.

He even knows how to use his hands when he speaks. He's got that down pat.


*You guys should watch this one when you get the chance.

Stefan Molyneux is a beast. I am not in full agreement with him on some minor issues, but he is genuine, intelligent, and a great speaker.

I hope he comes back to Porcfest next year.

Introduced myself as an Anarchist at a gathering tonight, and got the usual looks, Reintroduced myself as a 'Kindergaerten-ist' soon after and suspicion turned to bewilderment, then to keen interest.

Hard to argue against 'dont hit, dont steal, my stuff mine, your stuff yours' unless you want to reveal your sociopathy, i guess!

He makes some extremely good points. Reminds me a lot of the founding fathers actually. Which is actually quite depressing on a few levels.

After watching this whole speech, I realized something. I thought to myself why do people need an ideology to follow? Why can't they just do what is right? Then it hit me as he was constantly ridiculing every other political view. This is what all the other parties do. They ridicule the hell out of each other all day long. They are indoctrunating their audiences through anger and not thought. We are running off of emotions, and not serious thought. That is what these ideologies are all about. Emotional views. Cloudy, fragile structures in that we don't want to see the bad side of it, because we are so caught up in the feeling of it all.

We need a system of thought. A system that combines aspects of Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Libertarians etc.. We need a structure that sorts through all the bickering rebellious ego nightmare and something more human. I think we can only do that through enlightenment. Reality is fragmented, into many many pieces. Idelogies only see the bits and pieces. They don't see the puzzle it all comes together as. Enlightenment, will bring all these pieces together. Enlightenment by its nature, is oneness, it is about wisdom and love. It is about seeing the truth. The paradox that we need to see is, that there is no truth. Only the perception of truth.

It is shockingly simple how easy these ideas are. Somehow, when you have a group of people, all properties and rules that people should abide by as individuals are all turned on their head.

Don't hit, don't steal, my stuff mine, your stuff yours.... these are not foreign ideas.... but people seem to have such a hard time accepting them when people agrigate.


The whole problem with the group think is that it is irrational. It makes no sense to group up and fight eachother but that is exactly what we do.

Your muslim? Well I am a Christian so I must kill you.
Your a socialist? Well I am a fascist so I must create tanks and bombs to blow you up with.
Your a democrat? Well I am a republican so I need to marginalize you and find ways to oppress you with my faith in Jesus.

Grouping up because of faith or geographic proximity in order to oppress others is not rational; Its psycho. It's Christian Bale flexing in a mirror while fornicating. It's absolute batsh!t.
