Secession, Can It Be Done?
This is a thought provoking video from Anarchyland.
In it, he explores the idea of secession. It appeals to me because we either need to tame the beast, or escape the beast. This intelligent young man shows us how we can do both and remain in the land of our fathers.
I would welcome your thoughts on this.
Anarchyland asks if I, Captain Hieronymus J. Ranty III (Ret'd) started the anarchy ball rolling. I think not. I have been banging on that drum for the last couple of months but I would never claim credit. The Libertarians beat me to it by years, and there must be an "official" Anarchy Movement out there somewhere.
My lifetime chronology, for those interested, goes something like this:
Age 16-18-drunken idiot
Age 18-25-serviceman and drunken idiot
Age 25-28-made and lost £1M. Idiocy and drinking involved.
Age 28-38-an offshore idiot. Drank my way around the world.
Age 38-44-an onshore idiot. More travelling, more drinking.
Age 44-48-Wising up period. Studying and researching like a man demented. Still likes a drink.
Age 48 onwards-Libertarian, Lawful Rebel, Anarchist, Trouble Causer, Freeman, Bloggist, Drinker and Smoker.
If I have educated anyone, inspired anyone, annoyed anyone (in government), or spurred anyone to do the same then I am proud of that. I do not think I am a Pathfinder, not really, nor do I think that I have started a new trend. I'm simply doing some unconventional stuff and letting you guys know how it is all panning out.
One thing I am certain of is that if I am wrong, you lot let me know.
For that, I am grateful.
Enjoy the video. I did.
And I for one hope that we see and hear a lot more from this guy.
