This past couple of weeks almost everyone watched this GOVERNment fail to deal with the impossible debt. It accomplished nothing but growing the pain and put off Collapse another 5 months by authorizing more debt.
We are here because we recognize that our Nation will soon collapse. Knowing that, we must be prepared to carry on. It is akin to “starting over”, an awesome task. If tasked with starting over, it will best to Restart on a fresh page. Humanity can ill afford to Restart with yet another GOVERNment destined to failure. The only way is to begin anew with a VOLUNTARY SYSTEM.
It begins with the moral foundation of principal defined in the page “Essence“.
HUMAN BEINGS are (questionably) intelligent, each with a thinking brain, normally capable of learning and of making rational choices to sustain and enhance their lives. That is not “greed”; it is (usually) rational self-interest. Those who make their choices reasonably well can and do take care of their families and will help others within their circle. Those who truly prosper can stretch a bit further and may do so voluntarily… or may seek to enhance their prosperity. Humans exist in endless variety, and so long as none intrudes upon any other, their aberrations are tolerable.
The “JUSTICE SYSTEM” — we all can see it doesn’t work. but do you wonder Why? Being run by the very same government which rules us, can you see now the simple answer? Governments at all levels operate with the power of Force, which can only destroy Liberty and Individual Sanctity. Those elected by some fraction of the populace become the rulers of the entire populace. Legislators are tasked with making “laws”, whether good or bad, will always interfere with the freedoms of the people, and serve mostly only to accomplish nothing which is of value to all people. Voluntary will find better solutions to “justice” and “law”.
As we are about to enter devastating and total collapse, is it not wise and prudent that we formulate a plan for RESTART? If we don’t do that now, it’ll be hell doing it from the abyss! If yet another government of Force finally formed, the cycle begins anew, destined to fail again on another day after victimizing their citizens beyond tolerance. Technology today and in the future will render resistance more difficult or even impossible.
THE TASK before us may be much simpler than it might seem. The more we can “Keep it Simple, Stupid”, the better. The more we spell out the more risk that we’ll end up with merely more of the same. We proceed under the assumption that the collapse will either eliminate the present government or render it incapable of maintaining itself and waste away. Considering what it has become, I see that as the most positive alternative remaining; it’s that bad!
A VOLUNTARY SYSTEM will function by people forming private clubs/groups/associations toward accomplishing their objectives. The objective can be anything they want, large or small, broad or specific in scope, as long as they are prohibited to force any others. Withdrawal from such must be a stated Freedom. This has vast implications – associations for churches, police, republicans, hikers, mothers, roads, green stuff, animal rights, even communists can form their group and oppress their Members, but none holds power over others! Good ideas will grow and bad ones will fail.
— Perhaps appropriate, and certainly must be addressed.Such need not be long and complicated, but needs to be crystal clear, essentially prohibiting force. In principle, however, any contract can be applied only to those who actually consent; a huge logistical problem awaiting our solution. Also, it must be revocable, and not applied to any who come later and do not sign. Such Constitution could provide for takeover and resale of “public” properties, absolute ownership rights to private properties, etc. Any Constitution must prohibit government from Force against it’s own people as well as other nations, except in self-defense. Remember, a Voluntary system is voluntary in all matters!
Voluntary Government is an oxymoron. Voluntary would never Govern, and Govern is never Voluntary. Voluntary System seems clear enough, but not very catchy. Will someone please coin us a new word?
Voluntary can be a system bringing a certain order to society. We must define the system so that the regular people may quickly grasp how Voluntary serves to maximize their Freedom without demanding their Sacrifices. We seek to develop the system by which one human can no longer legally oppress nor negate the free choice of any other. We will begin comments here on No-Ruler, and surely will see separate articles on certain areas such as a new Constitution.
Sharing with other websites is essential, in order to both spread the word, and to bring in other ideas, supporters and contributors to the thinking formation. We will NOT be attempting to form yet another Government to fail. Rather, our objective is to create a Voluntary System of Liberty, which cannot allow Force of any man or entity against any other. Humane in action!
Nobody can do all this alone! If you are in tune with this, please join us as a Registered Member and dive into the waters of pure Liberty. Your voice is vital to the movement! There is much to do in defining a Voluntary System. We appreciate our friends here; the proponents of Force are not welcome.
