Sands In Time Episode 11: All Words Are Not Equal

In this episode, Joshua looks at some terms libertarians use which express meanings they’re both in favor of and against. He also explains how, with a larger, more powerful vocabulary and understanding of language, we think better and deeper while gaining a greater understanding of ourselves and our world.

Sands In Time Episode 6: Pop the Bubble or Support the State?

The State has had a lot of supporters for far too long. Why is that? In this episode, Joshua Sands gives his reasons. Ideally, it would be great if disillusioned supporters would pop the statist bubbles they live in when they see the innate illegitimacy of the State, however, many simply stay where they are, waiting for ‘their’ team to take back power so they can dominate others. They continue to view the State as their parent, their god, their master.

Freedom IS Free

Here’s a Facebook post I put up a couple of years ago. Just figured I’d add since my feelings haven’t changed one bit:

The 4th of July is special and makes me think. Freedom isn’t given to us, it’s ours to accept as responsible adults. Government can’t grant you freedom, being free is a choice and an innate aspect of our being as grown men and women.  All any government, ever, in the history of humankind, can do is limit or take away our freedoms. Some of these being, and not limited to: the freedom to live, the freedom to die, the freedom to go where ever we want, whenever we want, the freedom to say whatever we want, whenever we want, the freedom to believe whatever we want, whenever we want, the freedom to protect ourselves, our children and our property or choose not too, the freedom to put whatever we want in our own bodies or to keep whatever we want out of our bodies.

I think of it this way, imagine you were warped to a world without any established government, hell, maybe you’re the only self-aware being around. Everything you can do is your innate freedom. All others can do is take them from you. Those bumper stickers that boldly state “Freedom isn’t Free” – WRONG, it’s absolutely free! We all have it, only we give it up, usually due to fear. These lives we live are ours. We are the owners of our own minds and bodies. Sure, one could get harmed by a bully or the state due to his or her enactment of their freedom but that’s our choice: free being or servant. Being free isn’t something that’s granted to us by another person or a government, it’s a choice, always has been, always will be.
