The Story: Derrick Broze – Author of “Manifesto of the Free Humans”
In this interview, Derrick Broze of The Conscious Resistance explains how he decided that money and status weren’t so important and he structured his life to meet his needs, about the Freedom Cells and similar organisations popping up across the US – these small independent groups of people training each other to be more free, about the Decentralize Your Life tour that he and his crew are about to embark on – spreading the message of liberty and independence, and finding ways to build communities, and about his new book, written with John Vibes, “Manifesto of the Free Humans”, which is the third book in their “Conscious Resistance” series, bridging the gap between spirituality and anarchy.
There is a natural phenomenon happening where ‘very normal’ people find themselves asking obvious and straightforward questions about everyday things. What’s happening to the weather? What’s happening to my neighbourhood? What’s happening to my investments? Many people can feel that there is something not right. These occurrences are now increasing, the questions are growing, people are peeling back the layers of illusion and asking for truth.
Now we live in a very different and very connected world, where social media and alternative media channels have been fueling ‘the awakening’. The sharing of knowledge, truth and ideas is having a massive effect in the fight to increase awareness. For all of us this is an on-going process, and the spiritual shift is now well underway, though we still have a long way to go.
In this episode Anam Paiseanta joins us to explain that we, as a society, must evolve individually, and join together, to consciously out grow of the current political system. The personal principles needed to get us all moving in the right direction can be found in anarchism. These are all ‘normal’ things – the love and respect for mankind, justice, cooperation, voluntaryism, the non-aggression-principle, personality responsibility and self-ownership. Your personal evolution will path the way to a much larger and social and political revolution. Anam also tells us about the progress on his team’s “Connector” app, which will allow people to connect with like-minded individuals, and even form hidden, counter-economies among themselves.
Here is where Anam’s formula of “A-Cubed” or “the three A’s” is leading to the evolution that enables the real world revolution:
1. Awakening – Sharing knowledge, memes – reminding each other of truth
2. Activism – Prevention of government indoctrination by educating the youth, alternative schooling
3. Agorism – Projects – Counter-economics, creating the new system, what can I do to add value?
The time is now – to tune in and turn up. The Paradise Paradox presents Anam Paiseanta!
It’s never my intention to initiate a violent revolution, a coup d’état, to take up arms to dominate people, in the hopes of freeing people. The reason being, you can never free people who don’t want to be free – who don’t even know what it means to be free. Like a brainwashed prisoner when his cage’s door is opened, he will cramp himself in the corner, and cower. A free man is a free man even when inside a cage. A true slave will find a master, even when he is released. For truly meaningful change, the mind must be freed first.
That means, people must learn philosophy, and they must know themselves. Why do the powerful try so hard to censor; why have they always tried so hard? With war propaganda, peacetime propaganda, lies, covert manipulation and overt force? Because they know intuitively: ideas are dangerous to them, because ideas can liberate us.
The real war can’t be fought with guns, because the real war is fought with ideas. Ideas will not be stopped by bullets or by bulletproof glass. No manmade law applies to ideas, nor the laws of economics or even the law of gravity. Their immortal, impermeable qualities demonstrate to us that they are a manifestation of Spirit, moving through the world like God’s fingers, unbound, divine, and relentless. Our ideas will outlive us, but more importantly, our ideas will outlive Them.
