5 Vital Strategies for Peacefully Underthrowing the Status Quo

Extracted from Alchemy of the Timeless Renaissance by John G. Vibes

One of the main reasons why the general population is so attached to the status quo is because many people are looking for a step by step process for how we can peacefully neutralize the power structure and achieve peace on this planet.

This step by step process is not a possibility, because human actions and the advancement of technology are both totally unpredictable. Sadly, it seems that people are waiting for a list of instructions that could never exist.

However, there is definitely hope, because although we cannot precisely chart the course to freedom, we can develop workable solutions that will lead us in the right direction and help us achieve greater levels of peace in our own lives. In this chapter, I am going to list the 5 strategies that I am most supportive of right now, and offer a brief description of how they work and why I believe they are effective approaches to meeting this goal.

The Obviousness of Anarchy: The Creation of Rules Of Law

Continued from The Obviousness of Anarchy: The Question

Written by John Hasnas, Associate Professor, Georgetown University, J.D., Ph.D, LL.M.

IV. The Answer

A. Rules of Law

1. CREATION

Supporters of government claim that government is necessary to provide the fundamental rules that bring order to human life in society. Without government to create rules of law, they contend, human beings are unable to banish violence and coordinate their actions sufficiently to produce a peaceful and prosperous society, and hence, are doomed to a Hobbesian existence that is “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”3

The proper response to this is: look around. Those of us residing in the United States or any of the British Commonwealth countries live under an extremely sophisticated and subtle scheme of rules, very few of which were created by government. Since almost none of the rules that bring peace and order to our existence were created by government, little argument should be required to establish that government is not necessary to create such rules. On the contrary, it is precisely the rules that were created by government that tend to undermine peace and order.

The Amazing Math Of Bitcoin’s Private Keys

How do you slow down hackers and provide equal access to everyone on earth? Not easy. But Bitcoin’s solution is devilishly simple, employing outrageously big numbers. Bitcoin’s private keys are made of numbers (called quindecillions) that are so large, they literally choke the best computers. In fact even if all the world’s computers were able to work together, these numbers would still be too large. By using an analogy to drawers and pirates, James dives into this math, revealing not only how simple the idea is, but how well it works.

Student Debt and the Coming Currency Crisis

Written by Winter Trabex

“Go to school, get an education, get a well-paying job.” Conventional wisdom declares this to be one path to success. Yet, in the second decade of the 21st century, this path leads to rising debt, unemployment, and a number of years wasted on a non-productive venture. Making money comes easiest not when a person makes themselves attractive to employers, but when they leverage their skills into profitability. These can be, and often are, two entirely different things.

Despite using the newest textbooks, today’s college courses are often lagging behind the information available on the internet. It is something of an irony to discover that self-education allows a person to learn more than the longest period of study at a university. This is especially apparent when doctors who studied medicine for half their lives know next to nothing about nutrition. Somehow, inexplicably, businesses continue to look for people who have college degrees rather than seeking out the self-starter, the self-educated, the person motivated to meet the world on their own terms.

Bubbles, Booms, & Busts: Toward an Extended Application

Written by Will Porter.

Interest Rates & Spontaneous Order

Among those interested in free market economics, the “business cycle,” or the cyclic generation of “booms” and “busts” in the market, is of high significance in this modern age of recession. Economic theory explains certain market downturns by referring to harmful and misguided interventions undertaken by state agencies. A business cycle is brought about when government, through central banking institutions, creates conditions that bring about an artificial boom, or “bubble,” in the economy. After some time, this is then followed by a corrective bust, which takes shape as a recession, downturn, panic, or depression of some sort.

To elaborate further, in the US the Federal Reserve will tamper with interest rates, usually pushing them well below the rate that a freely functioning market would have set them at. When credit becomes cheaper, it acts as a signal to entrepreneurs and investors to start their business projects, especially those involved in the “higher order” stages of production: heavy industry, mining raw materials, etc. These businessmen see a lower interest rate as a sign to begin their long-term investment activities, since more time-intensive undertakings will be easier to fund with a lower rate of interest.
