[11/27/2020]—Smuggling is closely related to another law-defying activity called the "black market." In a hypothetical free society neither smuggling or black markets would be possible, because everyone would be free to produce any product or perform any service they chose in the open market, where anyone would be free to buy those products and services.
A Penny Saved Is Not A Penny Earned [11/26/2020]—You must earn it before you can save it, and you must work to earn it.
Against The Flow [11/24/2020]—A free individualist is a peculiar being. If you choose to be free, you will be very unusual, and however you choose to secure your freedom and live your life, it will not be a "usual" life. Look around you at all those who continue to live in slavery to the state—that is the usual.
Nothing To Worry About [11/19/2020]—Work to change what you can change, and learn how to accept what cannot be changed, and strive to know the difference.
Ten Mistakes— 10. You Cannot Save The World [11/18/2020]—Freedom only pertains to individuals, not societies. Freedom is a necessity of life for human beings because, to live, they must be free to learn, and think and choose how to live. Only individual human beings have the necessity and ability to consciously choose their behavior. A society's, "behavior," is only the sum of the choices and actions of all the individuals that are that society.
Ten Mistakes—9. You Owe Nothing to Society [11/17/2020]—You are not born with any obligation (or duty) of any kind to any other human being—not to humanity or society, or your country, your community, your neighbors, or your family, or any other individuals. No one else has a claim on your life, or any part of it. Your only "obligation" is to yourself and that obligation is to be the best human being you can be. The only one who suffers if you fail in that obligation is you.
Ten Mistakes—8. You Will Never Be Appreciated [11/16/2020]—If you are a free individual, what others say about you or to you, or what anyone else thinks about you or how anyone else judges you does not matter because all that matters to you is reality and the truth that describes it. No one else can really know who and what you are, with the possible exception of one who is closest to you. It is only what you know you are that matters.
Ten Mistakes—7. You Make Your Own World [11/15/2020]—Reality is immutable, absolute, and ruthless. Immutable means the nature of reality cannot be changed or ever be other than what it is. Absolute means reality is complete and unconditional; it is all there is and is not contingent on anything. Ruthless means reality determines what is true and not true, and no human feelings, desires, choices, acts, beliefs, or wishes can change it.
Ten Mistakes—6. Everybody Is Different [11/14/2020]—What distinguishes human beings from all other life is their volitional nature. Beyond the fact that every individual human being is an animal organism with a mind (which is what makes them human beings and the only way in which they are the, "same,") every individual is different from every other human being.
Ten Mistakes—5. Things Will Not Get Better [11/13/2020]—Unlike non-living entities, every living organism must act to remain the kind of organisms it is. The life of any organism is not something that happens to the organism, but something it does and must do if it is to remain alive.
Ten Mistakes—4. Reality Is What It Is [11/09/2020]—Reality is all that is the way it is, whether anyone knows what is or not. If one is to live successfully in this world, it is the world as it actually is, not as one would like it to be, that one must know and base their choices on.
Ten Mistakes—3. Fighting For Your Rights [11/08/2020]—There is no such thing as rights. No one has a claim on anything in life that they have not produced, earned, or merited by their own effort. The pursuit of rights is an immoral pursuit of the unearned and undeserved, as well as a huge waste of one's resources.
Ten Mistakes—2. The Prophets Among Us [11/07/2020]—Perhaps the most universal of all hoaxes and scams is, "prophesy," the claim that one is able to foresee or predict the future. From palm readers to pseudo-scientists predicting "global warming," none of these frauds could be put over if one simple inviolable fact of reality were kept in mind, no one can predict the future—EVER!
Ten Mistakes—1. The Secret Of Success [11/06/2020]—Free independent individualists are neither omnisicient nor infallible, and are as prone to mistakes as any other human beings. The difference is, a free individual is always willing to admit and correct mistakes when they are discovered.
Free Individuals [11/05/2020]—One impediment to freedom is the belief that true individual freedom is not possible to achieve. It is easy to understand why this is true. Though there are literally millions of individuals living their lives freely and successfully in almost every country of the world, all of academia, politics, and the popular press neither recognizes or acknowledges them and all philosophy, religion, and ideologies deny it is possible.
A Free Individual—Ghost [11/03/2020]—Freedom is the greatest adventure of a lifetime, and there ain't no going back to the herd.
Dead, or Alive and Free? [11/12/2020]—Each individual has the power to take liberty and make it a reality in his own life.
Freedom Is A Family Affair [11/01/2020]—There is common false picture of free independent individuals as some kind of loners with little social life and certainly not a family. A free individual, in fact, is more likely than not to have a family, a spouse and children, because they are part of his means of achieving and being fully human and fully enjoying his life.
You Can't Fake It [10/28/2020]—The harm of a lie is to your own consciousness.
Being Truly Yourself [10/27/2020]—Being yourself is being what you have made yourself.
Everybody Is Different [10/26/2020]—One man's meat is another man's poison; one man's trash is anothe man's treasure.
Practical Freedom [10/25/2020]—Practival freedom means identifying what it is you want to do and achieving the conditions in which you are free do it. Freedom means being able to do whatever you choose to do without the interference of any other individuals or human agencies, including government. If you are able to do whatever you choose, you are free.
Making Money [10/22/2020]—Money is a tangible representation of one's independence, the symbol of his productivity, as well as a means to freedom itself.
Never Explain [10/20/2020]—You do not need an excuse to live your life. You do not need anyone else's permission, approval, or agreement.
Diversions From Freedom [10/18/2020]—Even if one is truly an independent individualist who cannot live without freedom, it is easy to get diverted from the course of freedom, because there are an infinite number of things in this world all beckoning to us to, "look at this," "buy this," "do this," or, "worry about this," with promises of interest, excitement, importance, pleasure or satisfaction.
Food For Free Thinking [10/15/2020]—Knowledge is food for thought. Knowledge is all we have to think about or to think with. Many times, it is just an idea we become conscious of that sets off a chain of thinking that might inspire us, or clarify something that was otherwise in dout, or simply something interesting because it is a different way of seeing the truth.
Basic Knowledge [10/11/2020]—Knowledge is an absolute necessity for human success, and is one reason we want to have as much knowledge as possible. Since there is an almost infinite number of things one might learn, what kind of knowledge should one pursue?
Freedom, Not Vice [10/03/2020]—Freedom is not freedom to do wrong and get away with it.
The Dignity Of Freedom [10/02/2020]—Dignity is the highest virtue, encompassing all others, and is only possible to free individuals.
What Are You Waiting For? [10/01/2020]—If it is truly freedom you desire, what are you waiting for.
Why Do You Want To Be Free? [09/30/2020]—Freedom means being free to do whatever one chooses to do. If you do not have something to do, you really do not need freedom.
What Are You Living For? [09/24/2020]—What makes you life worth living?
Racism [09/18/2020]—What racism is and it's danger to you and your freedom.
