The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826), Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-82

I do get upset and angry. But then I think the best way would be to do something positive, however small. I am trying to start an “ecovillage” or intentional community where I live – as an evolving template for future better living founded on intellectual and emotional honesty and compassion.  If the whole world is mostly built with globally-minded, happy, busy, freedom- and neighbor-loving interconnected communities, hatred-driven people will have no places to recruit.

An interesting idea in a podcast: http://media.blubrry.com/seasteading/www.seasteading.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Is-Seasteading-Beyond-Democracy-We-ask-Frank-Karsten-author.mp3

My doubt: would breaking big states into little ones make more bureaucracy, nationalism and possibilities of wars? But maybe I am wrong. …

Whenever we see recently built houses in the countryside, they look like a blot on the landscape; nay, they are a blot on the landscape. This is for no simpler reason than they aren’t, or never were, a part of that landscape. Houses made from local materials, by their inhabitant’s own hands, compliment the countryside, give it a human touch, in the same way that a bird’s nest takes nothing away from a tree and only adds natural complexity and beauty. No one who has ever seen an old stone and thatch cottage in amongst an orchard of apple, pear and plum trees has ever expressed to me that they felt that such a habitat was a blot on the landscape. Such locally made homes enliven the countryside, make it a vibrant place full of life and abundance, instead of the tourist destination it has become for depressed city dwellers who want a much needed break from the stresses of urban life and disconnected consumerism. Therefore anyone who can build their own home – one hundred percent – from materials from their land (or within a short radius of that land) should be permitted to.

Don’t be afraid of the mob. Don’t be affraid of ones who punch if you say something they don’t like. Be honest. Be thoughtful. Be provocative if you think it is needed.

People who punch because you don’t want to pretend that you like their imaginary friend are the worst on this planet.
