Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.


By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning.

What the F is that supposed to mean, really?

It could mean a lot of things, but in this forum, and with the title "How I see politics" I see it as being a passenger in your own life.  How horrible, trust me, in the end, when it's all over, following this doctrine is going to bring you sorrow.  The sorrow of the awareness that you're life had no meaning and you were a moral failure.

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

It's a very Zen Buddhist thing to say. Perhaps the title was poorly chosen, but then, if the "rulers" followed the same philosophy, it would be a much more peaceful world.

If the rulers followed this then they wouldn't be rulers.

A lack of meaning is only a problem for those who desire meaning. As for morality, I do not concern myself with gods and spirits either good or evil nor do I serve any.

Yeah, I agree LSD is fun and lets you see things from interesting perspectives.  But eventually, when you come down, I'm willing to have a sane discussion.  Let me know when it wears off.

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

"Make the best of a bad situation"

But that doesn't mean "don't resist". Resist by all means.

I think politics is something that fails to evolve. It's why the same things have been repeating over and over for a few thousand years now, just becoming more dramatic. I think we need research, try completely new things, because with all these failing systems we don't have too much to loose... or lets say it differently. We loose anyway, if we don't try. I don't care, both Seasteading and the Venus Project at least look like ideas. Yeah, maybe they will fail. Maybe they will fail badly, but have a look at how things are running. They fail too.

Maybe we need countries to go their own way, maybe we need to forget about the concept of countries at all. Maybe we need a world government, maybe we need way smaller, independent communities. Maybe we need nothing like that at all. But hey.. lets give it a try?

We fail to learn from history. For example, show me some Communist successes that didn't wind up in huge government control, a lack of freedom of speech, a million+ person massacre...
So maybe governments should keep their people fed, at least to the point where very few consider a communist revolution.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
