NYC Musician Uses His Time and Talent to Illustrate True Compassion as a Voluntary Endeavor

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Musician in NYC Performs Next To Homeless People So They Get More Cash:

My Commentary: Real compassion is voluntary…

But, hey, just quietly and passively pay those compulsory taxes to let the State “take care of” the homeless (AKA police harassment, corrupt shelter systems, vagrancy laws, destruction of property, fines, jails)!

Keep your soft, pink hands “clean,” my friends!

For just a taste of the truth about homelessness in NYC, and how the State represents the worse enemy to some of the most vulnerable members of our society, watch the movie, “The Saint of Fort Washington.”

Multiple Studies Reveal the Truth that Human Beings Are Naturally Compassionate and Cooperative

The following debate originally took place here, upon the Facebook page, “Living in Modern Times“…

Living in Modern Times:

"10 Things to Use to Make You a Better Human 1. Self Ownership 2. Natural Law 3. The Non-Aggression Principle 4. Consent 5. Using Conscience at All Times 6. All Interactions Must be Voluntary 7. Only Self Authority is Inherent to Humans 8. Truth & Freedom Come Before Family Obligations 9. Positive Rights Are Not Inherent to Humans 10. No Ruling Class, Society, & Collective Can Provide 'Justice,' 'Morality,' or Protection, as These Are Owned, Individually"

“10 Things to Use to Make You a Better Human

4. Consent

Joseph H.: Fine on,paper but won’t work,in reality. You don’t understand the universal nature of evil.

Living in Modern Times: oh? please explain the universal nature of evil, Joseph H.

Jeff R.: You don’t understand the universal nature of good.

Joseph H.: Everyone is sinful and everyone is capable of evil. Radicals always make the same basic, fatal mistake. They want to overturn an established flawed
order and replace it with What they think is a utopia. They don’t see that
they are subject to the same faults as the rulers they replaced. It happened in the French Revolution and in the Russian Revolution. A bloody, sadistic regime replaced a long established monarchy. Power corrupts and unless you have something to balance that, you’ll be corrupt too.

Rayn: Reality does not tend to agree with the highly cynical notion that humanity needs to be ruled over by morally-bankrupt criminal scum. And, the Statists currently denying our natural right to live, to own ourselves, and to peacefully co-exist are simply those who wish to violate them, by way of robbery, slavery and/or murder – either directly, or through violent, coercive proxy (church, state, etc). This is typically done while espousing the usual brand of illogical superstition, replete with “original sin/presumed guilt/pre-crime/chaos” myth about the inherent “evil/cruelty/disorder” of humanity.

Of course, I reject such cult-like nonsense, as it is absolutely illegitimate. Not only have I personally met more kind and caring souls than I can count, I also recognize every human being as a UNIQUE, SOVEREIGN INDIVIDUAL – to be judged ONLY by the merits of their OWN character! As far as I’m concerned, assigning humanity with labels fit for criminals is merely an excuse for the corrupt and polluted souls among us to collectively oppress and punish us all for crimes we haven’t even committed, in an effort to catch a boogie man that lives no further than the nearest MIRROR! Besides, biology, itself, does NOT support the “freedom is slavery” double-think mentality of such control-freaks, no matter how many clever excuses they come up with in order to justify their lust to harm and enslave others:

The IngSoc Mentality Reigns Supreme in America

The following correspondence originally took place here, on the Facebook wall of Voluntaryist, Larken Rose

(replies from all third parties have been omitted for clarity)

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' - George Orwell, 1984

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.’ – George Orwell, 1984

Larken Rose: Here, have a PRINCIPLE: The fact that allowing people their freedom might result in things you don’t like, and things that don’t benefit you, does not mean that forcibly infringing on people’s freedom is justified. Freedom means you don’t always get your way. Deal with it.

Rayn: The IngSoc mentality of doublethink is polluting the thought patterns of far too many to even count. And, we are quickly approaching the year 1984.

Being pro-liberty and pro-justice (hence, a Voluntaryist), I often find myself debating Statists who protect their slave-minded views with some variation on the theme that “freedom is slavery.” These types typically regurgitate thoughtless claims, such as “warlords will take over,” “criminals will run the show,” and other such completely contradictory, totally accusatory ideas. And, I usually eviscerate their faulty logic by simply pointing out that the things they fear most about freedom are, interestingly enough, exactly those which are currently *legally* happening under the yoke of the State.

Also, being pro-peace, and hence, anti-war, I also find myself in the strange position of debating Statists who claim some variation on the theme that “war is peace.” These types often dutifully explain to me that the American government is bombing the Middle-East for the sake of “reducing violence,” for “stability,” for “protection,” for “liberty,” etc., etc. They even readily agree with my assessment of their view, when I say, “so, basically, you believe that war is peace?” Very few recognize the reference, nor do they understand its implications. The idea that a war pig like Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize is completely Orwellian, alone. When I hear any mention of the pathetic “war on terror” justification, I often invoke crickets by mentioning that war, itself, is terrorism. More doublethink…

Sadly, the “ignorance” required for, and maintained by, these two major modes of doublethink lends enormous “strength” to sociopolitical collectivism, and by extension, the continued existence of a single ruling authority-head, capable of molding and forming such a gigantic mass of shapeless, empty human beings into one centrally-structured body.

Discussing the Reality that True Compassion is Voluntary!

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “True Compassion is Voluntary!“…

“To the person going through our trash for their next meal,
You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic Pb&j, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.
-Your friend, the owner”
Voluntarily choosing to feed those less fortunate. JustAnarchistThings

Voluntaryism: because true compassion requires a little something called… hmm… what’s that magic word, again? Oh, yeah! CONSENT!!!

Many shared the story, but few understood the lesson! Outsourcing our humanity to an ultra-minority of power-hungry “elect” has been a dismal failure for CENTURIES! It is the slave’s answer to being a responsible, respectful Individual.

“No! I don’t want to be peacefully free because criminals will just take over without established authority!“

NEWS FLASH: criminals have ALREADY taken over, and they currently engage in their crimes, almost fully unabated, under the “color of law” that comes from the very established authority you thought would prevent it! Even the mafia couldn’t accomplish such an amazing feat! In reality, the conditions that Statists claim to fear – the ones that keep them clinging so hard to the cult of “government” – are precisely the ones we’ve been in for a very, very long time, already! What they seem to really fear, but rarely admit, is the PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY, and the direct participation in shaping society that comes with Individual Sovereignty!

Statism is just another obsolete extortion-racket, run by a tiny ruling class of professionally-lying, elitist, morally-bankrupt, sociopathic, career criminals.

Interestingly enough, at least when common robbers, kidnappers, rapists, and murderers commit their evils, we plainly see their actions as wrong, and fight back, even. But, give these same types State-issued uniforms and weapons, with the free range to abuse their peers that comes with it, and suddenly, and, somehow, their evils magically transform into “jobs,” and they are called “heros.” Even worse: arm them with government titles and pens, and watch even clear-as-day war crimes turn into “collateral damage”! 😉

Greg C.: Nice thing to do
