Learn, Love and Live the Non-Aggression Principle for True Justice and Peace!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Strictly Voluntary,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

My Commentary: ❤ Learn it. Love it. Live it! 😉

Meditating on the Reality of Being Governed…

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “TRUTHgasm,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“TO BE GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.
It is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished.
It is, under pretext of ‘public utility,’ and in the name of ‘the general interest,’ to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, ROBBED:
Then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, villified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed.
And to crown it all, it is to then be mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored.

My Commentary: I’ve shared this quote previously, but this time, I’ll note that these words might appear to be recent, but they were actually written by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon in 1851!

As you can see, Truth transcends time!

(note: though I previously shared a shorter version of this quote in February of 2013, within my post, “To Be Governed…,” I still felt compelled to offer up an alternative commentary when I saw it again, due to the inspiring nature of these words)

Discussing the Writing Inscribed on the Stone Tablets Used Within the 1956 Film, “Ten Commandments”

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Stephen K.: Your thoughts, Rayn? Do they make sense?

Stone tablets used within the 1956 film, "Ten Commandments"

Stone tablets used within the 1956 film, “Ten Commandments”

Rayn: The above inscription looks to be written mostly in Middle Semitic “Moabite” script, which is a very slight variation of Middle Semitic “Paleo-Hebrew” that holds many of the same exact characters. The reason I believe it to be this particular Semitic script is because it’s the only one I know of that writes out the letter “waw” (“ו” in modern Hebrew) like a “Y,” and the letter “kaph” (“כ” and “ך” in modern Hebrew) like a “Y” with an extra branch emerging from the center (imagine a “ ,” minus the circle, and turned 180°). However, the letter “hhet” (now called “chet” and written as “ח” in modern Hebrew) and the letter “sin,” (now called “samekh” and written as “ס” in modern Hebrew) are both written in Paleo-Hebrew, instead of Moabite. Meanwhile the “lam” (now called “lamed” and written as “ל” in modern Hebrew) often jumps between Moabite and Early Semitic “Ancient Hebrew”… (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)
