Can Decide What You Believe In?
I think we are 100% responsible of our own beliefs and actions or behavior BUT why should I be for my drunk neighbor? Or anything that is done without my consent and against my will?
This describes governments’ behavior of-course and to a certain extend religion because one has a choice in what to believe. According to contract doctrines and so called laws there could be NO social contract without the informed consent and will of free people. Now, not to question your beliefs IS a decision. Did you take the good ones?
In business your are the product of your past decisions and in life too, so you are much better to take control of your beliefs as they will bring you exactly where they lead you, the question is: is this where you want or decided to go?
All government have a fatal contradiction that destroys their ”raison-d’être”, their legitimacy. If they claim to have suppressed slavery then logically they cannot enforce any of their so called ”laws” or rules against your will and or without your consent as doing so is claiming to rule you as a master reducing you by force to slavery. These masters rightly believe that the slave who believes to be free is much more productive than the one who knows is being exploited to his detriment.
The fact that they still do it cannot be construed as consent since we all comply under duress as we all know they will always find somebody willing (by complicity or sheer ignorance and obeying orders) to use force to jail you or worse in order to gain your properties (energy) and silence you.
The effect of this fact on society could be seen as a values, and these value are violence and domination. So our societies value violence.
Law societies are very aware of that state, are you? Maybe that is why they call it the state. Ignorance of what is is no excuse, but to whom? Are we responsible? Is it the party offering the illusion (under duress or not is irrelevant in my opinion) or is it the one accepting it with all the consequences? Who should turn on the light? This gives you more questions than answers, no? A hint : when awareness becomes greater than ignorance.
It is hard to change the government, don’t you think? Beside you can get killed in the process. It is also hard to change yourself BUT it is way easier than the alternative: to change the world. You CAN decide anything you want and start to change yourself, it is simple BUT it is not easy. You can pick the country that provides the best conditions for your business model, you can pick the business model that best fit your style, in the end it is all up to you to create your life, one decision at the time.
