Exiting Politics (Including Anarchist Politics)

What is an Exitarian? Discussing exiting “anarchist politics”, opening up the free market of governance, and implementing it in the real world in an actual framework of decentralized communities.

 

Friends, we are the pioneers of a post-political world.

We seek to accomplish the freeing of humanity from the bounds of a violent, psychopathic elitist dominion, and into a decentralized paradigm of different, yet inter-working communities; achieving a world of peace, prosperity, and onto the next part of our human evolution.

As you know, it is vital that we begin to evolve the one element of physical humanity that has not evolved in centuries and is the central tool of elitist control: governance.

It will involve intelligence, creativity, and compassion-as far as at least understanding and respecting you fellow race as yourself.

In being the pioneers of this, we must continue to develop our ideas effectively. This means we need to be aware of our own weaknesses (as individuals and as the collective movement), and then work towards debugging them. It is without doubt that the infighting of our community is one of, if not the biggest, weakness we have.

In this message I will express an idea that can shed light on this issue to debug it, while also opening up a new perspective and finally how this idea can be applied in the real world towards practical solutions for decentralization.

That being said, lets dive into the topic: what is an Exitarian?

To be an Exitarian is to exit from politics and the shallow surface of human structure that it represents, entirely.

Many Anarchists scorn Statists that distract themselves arguing over politics, presidents, parties, etc. Yet, likely out of unconscious habit, follow in their footsteps in that they argue over what I want to call anarchist politics. And I don’t mean friendly arguments that seek new conclusions. I’m talking the strangely aggressive “Oh you don’t agree with me, you’re not a real anarchist” arguments; the infighting that does plague this movement and represents people living out their own suppressed memories with authority and not actually trying to work towards solutions.

We consciously know that a one universal system of governance could never harmoniously work. In the post-political world, there will be many different kinds of governance systems co-existing and collaborating. The world is a vast array of different kinds of individuals, ideas, cultures, geographies. etc. Even within the sphere of our own personal ideological theory, we find many differences in how such systems should operate. There isn’t one objective, correct idea in this matter. Yet, some people feel so emotionally defensive over these ideas they unconsciously fight just the same as Statists they mock.

It is time for real intelligent solutions and to move on from this because it is counter-productive, unnecessary, and truly a distraction from what we are actually trying to accomplish here. Aside from being a distraction of energy, it is one of the first aspects the feds will milk to infiltrate this movement. This movement has been a joke to them for a long time, but now is the time when it is really beginning to grow and spread effectively. I have a deep intuition that soon approaches the time when we are a real threat to their power, and we will really have to be vigilant of their tactics they implement to infiltrate. History shows us they will target the infighting card. So we can’t succumb to these weak mental tendencies anymore, we real have to transcend this notion of “anarchist politics” and the aggressive fighting of different policies.

So being consistent with our idea of exiting politics and creating an efficient post-political world with a market of communities, we should be practical in understanding that our favorite kind of economic structure (our specific flavor of anarchy) is NOT the only kind, nor should it be. To get meta with the love of the free-market, that isn’t even what the free market represents. In a true free market (emphasis on the free) of the post-political world, there will be countless kinds of interconnected governance systems working together; for there is no one correct end-all governance that ought to be imposed on the globe. As anarchists, we should recognize this (it being the foundation of anarchy), rather than unleash emotional inner demons on any Being that dares to disagree with our own subjective truth. This goes for within our ideological realm and even outside of it.

As an example, I personally resonate with agorism and anarcho-capitalism; I’m an individualist by nature. So naturally, I hate the system of communism and socialism with every fiber of my being. You would not catch me even in hell living in such a system by voluntary will. Yet some people really want that governance of collective welfare, and who am I to tell them that they can’t practice and experiment with these policies just because I don’t resonate with them? It isn’t wrong. As long as I am not involved in their commune, or any person involuntarily is, it doesn’t bother me. A main issue of communism has always been it is inflicted by force on people like me. Perhaps in the market, in a community where all individuals want to live under such a system, it could work for them? Maybe with the power of voluntary interaction and experimental testing, we could actually see a successful model of communism. Or maybe not, maybe it truly is impossible, and after such voluntary experiments maybe thats when communism can finally die.

In a free market of governance, just like any other market, there will be successful and unsuccessful models. This is helpful. In the long run, these models of governance will serve to teach us the benefits and weaknesses of certain policies. As a free market, it will also work as a feedback mechanism through profit and loss so that the systems of governance that serve the individuals and communities best will thrive and grow and spread their ideas, while the ones that are bad, wasteful or unpeaceful will fail and fall. Both of these dualities will ultimately be helpful to develop from. Through practicing this and studying it, we will begin to understand the science of living together; the art of community; the system of governance.

To be an Exitarian is to understand and appreciate this: that different economic systems can and will exist. It is a solution because it doesn’t ask you to compromise your personal ideas and beliefs at all, while intelligently accepting that they can coexist just fine among others. It is to respect that there can’t be one universal theory/practice, and as long as the system is voluntary, there really shouldn’t be. Furthermore, in the nature of a market, when different economical ideas get implemented, it serves as a true model and experiment for what exactly a good and a bad governance is through its profit and loss, like an entrepreneurship does. It serves us knowledge we really need to experiment with to understand.

When you are an Exitarian, the arguing of ideas in anarchist politics holds a lot less practical value. The real value is in building, creating, working, actually making physical effects of your idea in this world. It is the essence of being the change you wish to see. When individuals begin to live out and produce these results, this is when the market of governance starts to really open up, which ultimately allows for the disagreeable nation-states existing out of force to be competed with. They will likely be out-competed into their own demise, unless they choose to adapt wisely, as they are very violent, inefficient, old-fashioned, and unpopular to most people.

For our theories to have any real meaning and to be launched into actual reality, it will involve the practice of them. The proof is truly in the pudding, not just in arguing thoughts but in actually BUILDING models of them.

Real World Application of the Market of Governance

There are many real examples and practices we can participate in towards the opening up of the market of governance towards decentralization.

One mechanism through which we can create this market is a large scale implementation of agorism: startup societies: special economic zones, private cities, seasteads, ecovillages, green cities, micro-nations. These are real models of new kinds of governances, and they exist all over the world in the thousands. There are also amazing organizations beginning to study, experiment, and implement these different types of governances(which I will link to below). I really admire them as I believe they are building unparalleled and profound things in the world.

Another mechanism is the Agorist strategies we talk about so frequently on the Conscious Resistance Network. As an agorist, even if you can’t quite start or join an official startup society, that doesn’t mean you can’t begin to effectively organize and embody these practices within your own community. Essentially, building your community to be stronger, more efficient, more independent, more connected can be the same exact concept. Down the road, as we continue to decentralize and evaporate state authority, if you work hard, you are already laying the groundwork for what one day could be it’s own startup society. Simultaneously, you are being a model for the change you want to see which does influence other people on conscious and subconscious levels. What is more, you are helping the study of how to effectively organize a community.

The essence of this message is to explain the meaning of exiting politics, not just Statist politics, but Anarchist politics as well: to respect other views in a way that doesn’t have to distract you or compromise your own vision and work at all. This can help you to use your advantage the similar ends we all have, even though the means are different, and to collaborate with others effectively. It is to develop and build your ideas as you wish to see them, as a real means of launching innovative ideas into actual reality. While the existing states are obviously barriers, when this process takes hold, they are going to be made to adapt to better policies or completely collapse in on themselves through the competition of real intelligence and human innovation.

Even though its very few people who consciously care about their civil liberties right now (which is a result of the state delusion and propaganda, no less), when they see not only the epic freedom that can exist through these ideas, but the efficient and prosperous lifestyles that will be achieved… we will REALLY start to see the shift away from the current system of government and towards a completely new paradigm where governance is something you essentially can shop around for; finding the product that best fits you and your family’s lifestyle. And if you don’t find one and have a better idea you’re willing to work hard for, you can create your own system of governance.

This is how we can actualize the framework for decentralization of power to create different, interconnected communities that can begin to help us learn the science of living together.

And that, my friends, is how I truly envision a decentralized, anarchist, interconnected, peer-to-peer, voluntary humanity developing.

remembering

It is always dropping hints to the observant.
The interface of the inner and outer~

For I am
God remembering
himself humbly, in this vessel
that is I.

Under a spell, in a simulation,
living out this existence
like a grand piece
of multidimensional art.

Meanings branching out of meaning,
all of which I create.
My creations invoke ripples
in this one scheme
of Being.

Why now, I know not,
it calls me to summon
magic.

Healing Unconscious Demons for Conscious Solutions

Something we should be aware of in ourselves and in others: the upcoming forms of the human psyche expressing its inner turmoils in the outer world as we evolve, and how we can be proactive about the inestimable havoc it is already wreaking.

As humans continue to evolve consciousness, there are bound to be some profound changes in intellect. Along with the glory of humans developing amazing new insights and abilities, we will also see the darker sides come to the light: people’s inner turmoil and pain. This is especially true for the information kept in the unconscious.

Though this is not anything new, given the current variables of our world there are surely new effects to come of it. We should heed attention to this, in others and especially in ourselves, as people’s inner turmoils continue to grow and express themselves in new ways in the outer world.

For this reason, there is a call now more than ever for us to heed attention to our own mental health, our own neuroses, our own internal conflicts, and our own demons.

This has been the advice of many remarkable psychologists in the past, and it is relevant now more than ever as we continue to expand awareness of ourselves and the world around us.

The energy of the mind grows in extraordinary ways: a lot of power awaits us in the psyche. In the words of Carl Jung: “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

We have all seen, in others or ourselves, the way inner turmoil can destroy us, the people around us, opportunities, peace, etc.

Let us make the effort to put the kind of work into ourselves we need and deserve, though it is challenging to the core.

I don’t mean this to be prophetic; it is something I just strongly feel as I observe the energy in motion around us. The problems in our world are reflections of individuals and their inner states: to work towards solutions in the outer world it truly starts with people healing and developing themselves on an internal level.

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious…. There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” – Carl Jung

An Invitation to Freedom

It has been said that actions speak louder than words.

In the economy, we know this to be true. There are many minds seeking to shape the world around them. The aspiration of a peaceful and efficient society is not lacking in humanity; it is the understanding of the MEANS towards this aspiration.

While many seek to shape the world around them for what they think is best, it is important they consider their means and ends. Some try navigating change through the government, usually to much futility. Some try changing the world through their ideas and arguments, often to some degree of success.

Yet, there is an alternative and often more effective way to spread an individual’s idea: action. For the way you “vote” with how you spend your money will always be more effective than how you cast your vote in a ballot. And how you spread an idea with your actions will always be more effective than by mere arguments alone. And what you create from an theory’s practice will always bear more fruit than a theory alone.

It is high time for people to consider effective means to achieve real models of their ideas, rather than mere arguments alone.

This is true as we try to spread individual freedom and liberty in an age where people subconsciously think the government is God. That being said, we must adopt innovative strategies for spreading not just the theory of freedom, but real FREEDOM. The key is using economics of course, a power we all posses.

Yet, this is a vital point that seems to be missing from many libertarian minds when considering the means of economic liberty which I would like to invite you to consider: the PRACTICE of the theory (agorism).

While the economic theory of the market is indeed an important part of the means, it needs applicable practice in the real world to demonstrate it’s true value. Ultimately, the free market will speak for the free market, better than the best economist/philosopher.

I present 3 main reasons of why we must introduce the practice as a strategy just as much as we need to introduce the theory.

The first reason I would like to draw upon is that many people are hands-on learners, and simply don’t want to learn about economics. It seems dreadful and irrelevant to them; they’re not interested. However, when they can SEE the free market at work, this is when they begin to understand. When they can see its effects and actually participate in it, this is when people actually want to learn the theory. It is through my practice of the free-market, agorism, that I have been able to build a community of anarchists where I live, not theory initially. People are hands-on learners, and need to experience a TRUE free-market (instead of the crony capitalism we live in)  before they are interested in using the theory.

The second reason is what the practice of the free market creates: believe it or not, economic freedom! It creates a free market, albeit an underground economy, that encourages voluntary cooperation among the people for mutual benefit, it creates peaceful and efficient alternatives to the state, it creates competition with the state, it creates independence for the people, it encourages entrepreneurship, it shows them (not just in theory, but in empirical evidence) the real works of the free-market, even if it must compete alongside a violent state for now. It creates a new economy with the free market, hence it creates an alternative, better system to the current state and encourages people to navigate the free-market.

The third reason is the effects the free-market produces on the State. Free-market action acts as the ultimate civil disobedience to a tyrannical state. It siphons power away from the State’s legitimacy by directing the economic energy elsewhere. In fact, between using alternative currencies, creating private (better) services, and dissolving the illusion of State being the supreme authority of man, it hits every critical pillar of the States power. It siphons away the both the human energy and monetary funding invested into the state, and directs it into a new system: an economy created by the people. There are reasons why the State cracks down on even the smallest acts of commerce: over time, the acts of many individuals has a large impact on the economy and hence our economic freedom.

It comes as a surprise to me that some people who spend so much time thinking and speaking about the empowerment of free-market theory, forget to recognize the markets power when its actually in ACTION, to create a free market. Perhaps they haven’t witnessed all of the underground activities that go on, that no matter how small, encourage and build economic freedom at a massive level.

For it is not some huge revolutionary act we need, and it is not an untouchable power keeping the evil at bay: it is the social cooperation of the actions of countless individuals that is the real say of society.

So while of course it is important to spread knowledge of the theory, this attempt is hardly effective without real appliance of the free-market in action. It is the free-market in action that will answer for itself, showing it as an effective mechanism of social cooperation. It is the free-market that will encourage the free-market, and it is the free-market that will out-compete the State.

OR, so through my view. I have seen a transformation just in the small town I live, in people making the move towards individual freedom and away from the State using their economic power. It is nearly the beginning of this movement, and efficient and peaceful private services already are appearing on the market that threaten the State’s legitimacy.

Despite the infighting, Libertarians, anarcho-capitalists, and agorists will agree the free market is the means to peaceful efficiency of the economy, and the epitome of social cooperation. So perhaps instead of trying to only use theory to debate, as a universal Libertarian theory could never exist, to include the practice to spread economic freedom. For is this not the goal of the free-market? To achieve a feedback system from that allows the ideas that satisfy the most to see profit, and the ones that satisfy the least to see loss?

With practice, different flavors of liberty can coexist and compete. This is the remarkable idea of startup societies (special economic zones, private cities, seasteads, etc) , which builds a market of governances.. that will likely one day out-compete State governance in being much more peaceful and efficient, satisfying more people than the current model of a coercive state. In fact, acting as a real model of an idea, rather than just an argument.

In the words of the Startup Society Foundation: “Don’t argue, build”.

Unconscious algorithms

Nature speaks on atomic levels.
There is a communication
we have consciously lost,
only to be gained
more than ever before.

There are reasons you do the things you do.

Speaking in codes of the unknown,
we enter the irrational.
We dig deep inside ourselves
to find the universe, without.

Happenings play and speak
like Beings.
Do you listen?

We stand at the doors of the unknown.
A new phase of our humanity.
You know of what I speak,
even if you do not.

Divine algorithms churning
through many dimensions.
Matter trembles, as we walk through
the walls of perception.

Quantum manifestation

The struggle of modern man realizing that he is one
a meta, fourth-wall breaking concept is, to me, quite fun.
The way a psychotic individual needs healing,
a collective organism of man is revealing.

Times will unfold, as we shall see
the liberation of physical humanity.
Structures of economics, politics, and religion
approached with a far more innovative vision.
What comes next: explosion of creativity unbound,
and this is when the new world is to be found:
quantum manifestation.
