I Could Just Murder You (A History of Government on Earth) --
This is the title of the above video I invite you to view and ponder...beyond the time it takes to watch. THINK about this! My Credo and Admonition is "No Gods, No Governments"--and I understand how difficult this is for most persons to understand. One of my goals is to interest individuals to consider the supreme value of Personally Responsible Freedom. This video carries forward my intention.

Notice: Nowhere is NOW HERE!
To Understand Who I Am has been the Purpose and Meaning of this Life that I have Minded and made Mine. For 50 years I have Governed myself to become my own ultimate Authority. I chose to be Personally Responsible for my Freedom and this has made me Who I have become today: A Free Person who has Sourced himself and now is ready, able and willing to be a Resource for others who might be attracted to doing the same.
“From Each according to his Freedom; to Each according to his Responsibility.” FreeEach
"Every man bears the whole Form of the human condition." Michel De Montaigne
"We see ghosts dance because of specific universal experiences occurring in the development of the human animal. We bring from each individual family-nurtured past a mode of response to the supposed Stimulus, the nature of the Unknown being projected, not perceived. Supernatural revelation is misapprehended information about the mind itself. The Mystery is in fact only our own brains, often in an altered state of Consciousness: experiencing the 'supernatural' is only a functionally dissociated and differentiated state of mind.” Weston La Barre
"He who is unaware of his ignorance, will only be misled by his knowledge." Richard Whately
“I am not interested in money but in the things of which money is the symbol.” Henry Ford
“Those who think money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.” Sir George Savile’s Rule
“What is prudence in the conduct of every private family can scarce be folly in that of a great kingdom.” Adam Smith
“We have tried so many things, when shall we try the simplest of all – freedom?” Frederick Bastiat
“No one is so blind as the person who does not want to see.” Thomas Szasz
“Many adults lack freedom not so much because someone has stolen it from them as because they have thrown it away.” Thomas Szasz
“You ask which form of government is the best? Whichever teaches us to govern ourselves.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“He only earns his freedom and existence who daily conquers them anew." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“The intelligent want self-control; children want candy.” Rumi
“Curiosity, the desire for knowledge, the posing of man’s eternal questions, ‘Who am I’ – all these do not develop under the pressure of relentless need or of fear for one’s life. They develop when a man can pause to think, when the child is free to wonder and explore. They represent man’s distinctive capacity to develop interest – the autonomous interest that alone permits a full encounter with the object.” Ernest Schactel
“Love is the desire for contact or communication with another being like ourselves who makes his presence felt in a manner that reveals his essential nature to us and by so doing reveals our essential nature to ourselves. So the search for love is a search for recognition and our desire to be loved is a desire to be recognized, not for what we do but for what we are. Love is what remains when desire is satisfied and passion spent: the need to see one’s own reality attested in the reality of another human being.” Kenneth Walker and Peter Fletcher
"What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.” Fyodor Dostoevsky
“He has well profited who learns by loss.” Michelangelo
“Even the most courageous among us only rarely has the courage for that which he really knows.” Friedrich Nietzsche
“Those who pursue the higher life of wisdom…must be prepared to be laughed at and condemned. In trying to please other people, we find ourselves misdirected toward what lies outside our sphere of influence. In doing so we lose our hold on our life’s purpose. Content yourself with being a lover of wisdom, a seeker of the truth. Do not try to seem wise to others. If you want to live a wise life, live it on your terms and in your own eyes.” Epictetus interpreted by Sharon Lebell
“It takes wit, and interest and energy to be happy. One must be open and alive. It is the greatest feat man has to accomplish, and spirits must flow. There must be courage. A man must become interesting to himself and must become actually expressive before he can be happy. It beats all the things that wealth can give and every else in the world to say the things one believes, to put them into form, to pass them on to anyone who may care to take them up. Of course, if a man were to plump suddenly into the world with the gift of telling the actual truth and acting rightly, he would not fit into our uncertain state, he would certainly be very disturbing –and most probably we would send him to jail. We haven’t arrived yet, and it is foolish to believe that we have. The world is not done. Evolution is not complete.” Robert Henri
“Educate yourself, do not let me educate you—use me, do not be used by me.” Robert Henri
“We are underestimating both the craving and the capacity of human beings everywhere to understand the meaning of things, the nature of our world and ourselves, and our particular predicament as individuals and societies. Unless warped and deafened and deadened by propaganda the average human individual has resources and capacities that should cause a tyrant shame.” N.J. Berrill
“While the State exists, there can be no freedom. When there is freedom there will be no State.” Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
“What luck for rulers that men do not think.” Adolf Hitler
“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself…Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.” H.L. Mencken
“Where liberty dwells, there is my country.” Benjamin Franklin
“To be free, you have only to make the decision to be free. Freedom is waiting for you — anytime you’re ready for it." Harry Browne
