“The philosophy of anarchy lies in empowering people to take control of their own lives and not on having others having power over them.” – myself, James Cox
This will be a short post, because I am still on a journey of finding my own personal growth and I am still learning.
There is a lot of suffering on this planet that we live on, some of it is done by people who call themselves “government” and is condoned by the majority of people that believe in this superstition, after all it is only comprised of human beings just like you and I. However some people seem to think that this superstition called “government” gets its power from the very people that vote for it, but if you and I can not do what these people in “government” can do how is it that they can do this? You can not give something to someone that you do not possess yourself. For example You can not force your will on others and call it “law” so how can you give another human being the right to do this? You can’t.
It is important that everyone should understand that there is no authority but themselves and that the philosophy of anarchy does lie in empowering yourself to take control of your own life and do what you want so long as it is peaceful and you bring no harm to your fellow man.
To quote Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience and Other Essays:
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
If we want to change things in this world and make it more peaceful, you have to first change yourself and that is what I myself am attempting to do. I don’t think that people should wait for permission to start living their lives fully.
The only person that can give you happiness and permission to live your life fully is yourself. It is you that is accountable for yourself and for what happens to you in your life, no one else.
