My Day

Each morning, I get up and think to myself, "What can I do today to overthrow slavery in the world, based on Truth and non-violence?"

Generally, the answer is:  "Go to work and make a paycheck, so you can buy a few books and mail them out to educate people on the nature of both freedom and slavery."

1)  "liberty"/ "freedom" (Greek word:  elutheria) -- without liability or obligation.

2)  "enslaver" (Greek word:  andrapodistes) --  1)  one who imposes a taxing of labor and/ or the intrinsic value of property, property being the physical manifestation of labor, upon uncondmned free persons.  2)  to number as cattle.

"[O]nly slaves entered the relationship as a substitute for death" (p. 26, "Slavery and Social Death:  A Comparative Study," by Dr. Orlando Patterson).  Try to stop paying the personal income tax and see how many guns get pointed at you in an expression of death.  Try to live without a Social Security Number in Amerika and see if you can feed and clothe yourself.  Try to stop paying taxes upon the intrinsic value of your property while refusing to give it up and see if your death is not presented as the next option.

That's my day, pretty much.
