Agenda 21 In One Easy Lesson

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back. Many complain that elected officials just won’t read detailed reports or watch long videos. “Can you give us something that is quick, and easy to read that we can hand out,” I’m asked.

So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on one page. I’ve also included for the back…

HOW TO SURVIVE MARTIAL LAW Wednesday, May 15 2013 

This article will start off assuming that the Reader is already subject to MARTIAL LAW; that is, the “suspension” of the Constitution. Curfews, rationing of basic goods, enforced relocations, confiscation of firearms and supplies, and summary arrest/execution by soldiers, paramilitary police and other jack booted types wielding assault rifles. Basic survival tips will be followed with some detailed ideas on how this country should be run once we take over. IF you’re reading this before MARTIAL LAW is imposed by the current corrupt government, and IF you are reading this while you still nominally under Constitutional Law, it’s urgent you read from the beginning to end so as to appreciate the opportunities you currently have to not only protect yourself and yours, but to attempt to stop all of this from ever happening.

Rule #1 Never take the government’s word at face value-except when they tell you that they’ll kill you. Government and it’s components of career politicians, bureaucratic vermin, and their agents of enforcement, the SS ninja wannabes, have survived on illusion and lies, and for a lot longer than you’d think. It’s the very nature of the job; being part of an empire wrapped in the cloak of American political traditions of Freedom, that corrupts. All that power, attracting the most venal along with the most patriotic to defend America. All that license under ever mutable law written by money whores to lie, steal, embezzle, blackmail, extort, poison, torture, enslave, murder. Is it any wonder then that such human scum would get together and work “the system” to set themselves up as kings, dispensing with the pretty coverings of Constitutional limitations that trip their crimes like a prom dress? They take as much as they can, while keeping YOU ASLEEP, AS YOU LET YOURSELF BE SEDUCED AND PUT ASLEEP BY THEIR FELLOW TRAVELERS IN THE MEDIA AND CORPORATE BOARDROOMS.

Rule #2 KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT! Do NOT tell anyone anything that could get you in trouble. Assume anything can get you in trouble, because it probably will. Especially with any government official, but anyone looking to gaining a favor with the state can and will snitch on you. The rat who would sell you out for his thirty pieces could be: *A small businessman looking for a in with the state so he can make money a little easier. *A former friend who’s looking to get some revenge. *Someone desperate for even some food. Times are tough and will get tougher. Again, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT! Review the remaining rules of surviving MARTIAL LAW with Rule #2 ALWAYS in mind. Because some rat on two legs you say the wrong thing to, WILL snitch to the “authorities” in exchange for favors or even brownie points, and then you get to find out how ironclad Rule #1 is. KEEP YOUR BIG MOUTH SHUT!!

Rule #3 ANY AUTHORITY FIGURE IS THE ENEMY! Unless you are waging a war of liberation-gathering intelligence or spreading disinformation or infiltrating-have no relation with nor voluntary contact with any soldier, police officer, bureaucrat, or anyone in authority in private life cooperating with MARTIAL LAW. Review Rule #1: Assume they’re all liars, con artists, hustlers, thieves, and sellouts. Same goes to any fellow travelers in big business; they and government have been in the same bed for centuries. Stay away from them as much as possible. Tell them lies. Don’t do any business with them. Unless they’re sticking a gun in your face don’t even acknowledge that they exist. Shun them, their family and any sycophants that fawn over them for a few favors.

Rule #4 YOUR PERSONAL SURVIVAL IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OBEYING ANY DICTATE! If you’re prohibited from having an item that helps you survive, get the item, review Rule #2 AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. If you’re prohibited from having extra food, medicine, guns (no brainer) then you will CACHE your prohibited items in a place where they won’t easily be found. Use your imagination. One idea is to store “whatever” in sealtight waterproof containers in remote wooded areas, known ONLY TO YOU! Firearms are metallic; they can be detected by metal detectors unless you store them deep underground or in a place they won’t think of looking right away, like sealed in wider metallic tubes, away from your property. And if you by chance acquire or keep firearms knowing HOW TO USE THEM(sight alignment, trigger squeeze) and RELOADING AMMUNITION will be mandatory. IF YOU’VE NEVER USED A GUN BEFORE, To use a gun, first find the PROPER AMMUNITION FOR IT. After loading, pointed end forward, the ammo into the magazine, cylinder, or chamber load the weapon. On semiautomatic pistols if the slide-that moving part on top-is locked back there’s a small lever on the left side of the gun. Push on it and it will close. Otherwise you’ll have to pull the slide back yourself. Pistols are concealable, rifles and shotguns are for starting a fight. Shotguns you load from a port on the underside, behind the fore stock or it breaks open. Rifles come in several varieties; single shot, pump, bolt action, automatic, and feed from the chamber, a internal magazine or has a detaching magazine. The rifle you want first and foremost is a automatic rifle in a military common caliber. That coupled with proper marksmanship transforms you from a victim to a freedom fighter.

Rule #5 While keeping the above rules in mind, HELP OUT THOSE WHO ARE RESISTING! They, unlike you, have decided that there’s nothing to lose and therefore deserve anyone’s help who’s willing to risk their lives. Do you think MARTIAL LAW is going away on it’s own? Those bastards in black will have a sudden change of heart and do something worthwhile for a change and not oppress you? At The VERY LEAST: have extra food, water for resistance fighters, basic medical supplies, ammo caches(hint, these should be concealed). Those who fight will need to keep hidden, yet be able to communicate with fellow fighters. You can be a intermediary. If you have skills, like welding, machine tools, chemistry, you can make weapons, ammo, other things the resistance needs. If you have inside information, share it. If you have videography experience, tools, Make how-to videos on resisting the theft of your freedoms. If You have medical training, Set up a underground hospital. Not all Patriots can or should pick up a rifle and blow a traitor’s head off. By uniting in common cause with all one has to offer the traitors can be defeated, and Freedom restored to the land. If you’re not at least giving aid to those helping to liberate you, forget this article, go back to being a victim of government oppression.

Rule #6 With the utmost care develop a SURVIVAL NETWORK. This is a group of people with skills and/or resources who can help each other in areas they would be lacking on their own. It could be anything from extra food, medicine, repair parts, fuel, transportation-whatever. In any given neighborhood you can have machinists(weapon makers), medical personel, drivers(good knowledge of local roads), gardeners(agriculture knowledgebase). Petty bureaucrats secretly opposing martial law are prime candidates to spy, steal, or commit sabotage. Computer technicians can hack government systems and create surveillance systems and guidence packages for missiles. Construction workers can build secret rooms to hide anything from a arms cache to a secret factory. People in the media can smuggle cameras and work with computer techs to bug enemy meetings, and produce freedom media that documents sucessful means of resisting. Salesmen can “borrow” merchandise from their stores for use, anything and everything is useful. Especially useful will be disgruntled cops and military who can provide everything from intel on raids to weapons to training. Keep the numbers of your group “small”: smaller cells are more difficult to penetrate by enemy agents and professional snitches. Keeping that in mind, a means of communication independent from wiretapped phones and audible eavesdropping devices must be developed amongst you. Runners can be a athlete or a kid on a bike. They can carry small packages, or notes with a handy breakable vial of flammable liquid if discovered. With a sealed packet of potassium chlorate taped to it, the gasoline will automatically ignite, otherwise you’ll have to actually light that incriminating evidence.

A mail drop can be a home, a hollowed out tree trunk, a hole in the ground, a open fence pole, anything. Just be sure it’s discreetly out of sight of surveillance. If God’s really blessing you, one of your group will be a SMART SURVIVALIST. This will be a exceedingly rare breed, because although most in this group were smart enough to prepare for the collapse to begin with, they WEREN’T smart enough to avoid detection of their awareness and distrust of government. They signed form 4477 registration forms for their firearms, used credit cards and checks for their weapon and ammunition purchases, registered for weapons permits, or registered themselves with gun clubs and shooting organizations. These people more than likely got swept up in pre-dawn raids or got blasted resisting. The SMART SURVIVALIST prepared-and kept his mouth shut about those preperations. He or she never signed federal permit forms for purchases or carry license. He or she presented a “average American” profile or totally disappeared. Get or find one in your group and you’ll have a literal treasury of knowhow and resources to survive, maybe even start taking back a little?

Rule #7 AVOID GOVERNMENT MONITORING AND CONTROL! Know where the cameras are and how to avoid them. Know who patrols where, and what routine they follow so as to avoid contact. Know your snitches and always feed them b.s. if you can’t avoid them. Find ways around checkpoints. Side streets, forest paths, neighbor’s yard, railroad tracks, tunnels; whatever go arounds nessesary to getting from point a to point b without a pack of government troops searching you, checking your ID. I can’t and won’t go into detail, how you find your way will be up to you.

Rule #8 AVOID A GOVERNMENT ROUNDUP. It could be from a disaster, an attack, or even because they’ve decided to end the pretense and show you what they really think of you and your “rights”. You’ll just wind up in a detention camp where your freedom of movement and resources will be strictly controlled. That means having a place to go away from your area, a means to get there, and supplies. Very difficult to do in a martial law situation, with shortages and rationing at gunpoint. Remember the victims of Hurricane Katrina? Remember how they were set up to be stranded in New Orleans by the government? How they were constantly baited with false hope of rescue for a week after the catastrophe? How they eventually were herded by FEMA into concentration camps? You disregard Rule #1, you’ll find out. Get a safe house of your own, an abandoned home, an empty storefront or even a patch of woods. When the troops start going street to street, house to house have escape routes by lesser used streets, trails, whatever. You may have to go on foot, so have a light backpack with a few days worth of nonperishable food, portable water purifier, a first aid kit, a light sleeping bag-and your weapon. A mountain bike may be a more optimal and versatile escape mode than your road-dependent car. Better to be on the run, desperate-and have your freedom-than be imprisoned in a FEMA slave camp.

Rule #9 Find a way you can successfully resist. Probably not with guns or bombs, but there’s plenty of ways you can monkeywrench the basic functioning of the state during MARTIAL LAW. If you work for the state you have plenty of opportunities to mess things up, but even private firms are subcontracted by the government. You know who’s just earning a paycheck, who’s backing this war against the people, and who’s getting off on “just following orders”. If you can take action, great, concentrate most of your planning on getting away with the job. Otherwise, get contacts with Patriots and be the most reliable source of intelligence you can be. Every bit of drag on the government beast helps, perhaps in botching that paperwork, breaking that surveillance camera in disguise, or misdirecting that bureaucrat or soldier cop. That act might be the beginning of a butterfly effect of bringing down the state of MARTIAL LAW and restoring Freedom to our nation. Always keep that in mind. You must find your own way, but find it you must, if you want what was stolen from you back!

As far as a detailed list, here’s what I have:
1. A sturdy army surplus backpack.
2. A first aid kit, including bandages, iodine, alcohol, gauze and painkillers.
3. Close range “melee” type weapons. I have a hand made bearded axe that will go through solid walls, a weldor’s chipping hammer (nasty looking thing), bowie knife, and assorted pocket knives. 4. Long range weapons. You will need a rifle, not a sniper’s rifle. Choose somthing that uses common ammunition, somthing you will not have a problem finding in looted sporting good stores, dead bodies and trashed houses. Choose somthing lite that you can strap to your back and above all MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT.
5. Clothing. At least one set each of hot weather and cold weather clothing, you can always ditch what you don’t need.
6. Boots. A sturdy new pair of military combat boots, preferrably steel toes. Trust me on the steel toes, when you’re stuck with no weapons you’ll be glad you have them. Make sure they are comfortable and broken in. Water proof boots are good for woodland areas, for areas like bayous and such make sure you have vietnam era jungle boots.
7. Manuals. When you’re on the run, starving, and out of water you won’t be thinking clearly, manuals are a good way to ensure you will not forget important information. I currently have my improvised munitions handbook, an army wilderness survival handbook and a wilderness observation and tracking book.
8. Water. Make sure you have a canteen and get purification tablets to refill. I can’t stress water enough.
9. Rain gear. This one is obvious.
10. A fire kit. When you’re freezing in the woods you will not be able to rub two sticks together. Make sure all your matches and lighters are sealed in plastic. Bring kindling if you can. I have also included lighter fluid.
11. Light. Bring an army style red lensed flashlight. The red light will not ruin your night vision (your natural night vision) so you will not be left in the dark when you have to turn it off.
12. Medicine. Any important medication you may be on i.e. insulin, asthma medications.
13. Radios. If there are others in your group you will want to be able to communicate with them if you get lost.
14. Hand signals. If you have others in your group you will need to be able to communicate with them silently, make sure everyone in the group understands the hand signals.
15. Navigational equipment. Bring a compass and maps of the surrounding area. Good maps include road maps, hiking maps, and topographical maps. MAKE SURE you know how to use a compass and read a map.
16. Shelter. A tent if you can carry it, somthing that will keep you out of the wind and rain. If it’s too big to carry in your bag and run at the same time leave it behind. You will then have to improvise.
17. A handcrank radio. You will want to keep updated on new reports and such.
18. Batteries. Lots of batteries
19. A watch
20. Cooking equipment. This includes a pot of some sort, eating utensils, and somthing to cut wood with. I’d suggest a “Commando Saw” which is like barbed piano wire and will fit in your pocket.
21. Fishing equipment. Maybe not a rod, but bring hooks, lots of line, and lures. LEARN TO FISH
22. Knowledge. This is your absolute best weapon. Once you have chosen the place or area you will run to make sure you know it like the back of your hand. No doubt others have thought of the same location, it will be your knowledge of the area that makes your better. If there is a stream, know where it starts and where it goes. Know the hills, the mountains, the trails, the flora, fauna and climactic condiditons year around.

SECTION 2: HOW DO YOU TAKE A NATION BACK THAT’S UNDER MARTIAL LAW?

To be honest it’s probably the most difficult challenge anyone can face. Because you’re starting a conflict from scratch inside the belly of the beast. You can’t fight for territory when you’ve only got a few guns against divisions of enemy troops equipped with automatic weapons, armor, air support, the pitiful acquiescence of a “people” who long ago gave up Liberty for the trap of existence in a childlike, cushy debt slavery. So the smart coup leaders that prosecute a martial law takeover will do it against a population that’s already been pacified in one way or another. Now with the gilding stripped off their chains they’re as frightened hostages willing to go along with ANYTHING the state orders, so long as they have some semblance of their former “lives”. Aside from some disgruntled vets, the American People, untrained in the military arts or even basic survival, have been pacified, or the coup would never have taken place.

It is simply fear of loss after being so coddled, so divorced as a culture from personal responsibility which can lead to anger, and then revenge. So the better way to pacify is to bring it on in a overwhelming torrent onto a population unprepared for it, unprepared for hardships. Take away their culture, their moral cores, their connections to God. Ply them with diversions and trinkets . Condition them to find solace in material things, in distractions like spectator sports, movies and television. Keep them hypnotized by a junk culture while their means of sustenance, their jobs, are shipped overseas piecemeal, so they don’t wake up. Keep them hypnotized while their rights are legislated into impotence and irrelevance by the state’s enforcers. Keep them hypnotized by a junk culture, as even the know how of being able to survive outside the system, basics like growing food, repairing cars and equipment, marksmanship and so-on, is all but gone. And all the time tell them they’re free and prosperous. Eventually you’ll have a people much like modern America’s dumbed down materialistic debt slave. Such a people as ours, constantly fed lies about this corrupt system in the media, are ready for a fall now as I write this. All that’s needed is a plausable pretext, a cover story for them to accept.

People can be stubbornly stupid when it comes to misdirected hope. Many of these slaves will actually defend the system that has enslaved them. Such is the enemy’s genius at their social engineering. All those slavishly obeying the state in a martial law environment, for some forlorn hope that their lives will somehow go back to the false paradise of the late 20th century, will in effect be the enemy themselves. But you won’t be alone. The enemy’s genius is formidable, but not perfect. Quite frankly they’re overconfident, and even if they weren’t, they’re not God. They can’t see all, and they will make fatal mistakes. God will put stumbling blocks in their path to protect you. The question will be, will you be wise enough to exploit those mistakes to help bring their downfall? With whole regions of the country infiltrated and secured, secret industry can develop. Light weapons can be constructed at first, but eventually heavy weapons could be designed and made, and distributed. Ammunition, food, fuel, medicine, all these can be manufactured on or made with basic machine tools and chemistry. The time will come, if the enemy still clings to their foolish hope of defeating the American People with the brainless thugs and sheeple that lick their boots, that entire territories can be openly liberated.

BUT LET’S NOT LET THIS SCENARIO PLAY OUT! Because a MARTIAL LAW will lead to CIVIL WAR, and national destruction, what I suggest is that it’s much better to organize right now! We still have a political process we can use if we learn how to use it effectively. We can together find small towns and take them over, like the Libertarian’s Free State Projects, only focused onto individual towns. Take them over, and spread out from there. We as Americans need a standing example of what a Free State is. Even some in the traitorous elite don’t want to see MARTIAL LAW because they recognize the exquisite control and enslavement the current American political system has over Americans, and want to keep their power. They can be used, then abused. Individually, if you have guns, bury spares of your fighting arms, or sell them privately to new Patriot recruits. This will get easier as deteriorating conditions bring the reality of our situation home, and the government’s conduct in New Orleans make personal preparation a priority. Buy lots of ammo, food, medicine, reloading supplies. Get these at gun shows for CASH ONLY. Go to gun shows while they’re still legal! Find books on basic manufacturing processes, that’s vital!

If you have EVER joined a gun group, bought guns and ammo with credit cards, checks, and/or signed registration forms and permits HIDE AND/OR SELL YOUR EXCESS GUNS TO MOTIVATED PATRIOTS! Start driving around: look for abandoned homes, businesses, and roads or trails that’ll get you to them. Caves, forest haunts, old barns, the nastiest trailer in that tired old trailer park. When you recruit, don’t let them put their names on any forms that could implicate them in the eyes of the government. Keep your profile low. Patriots will need infiltrators, safe houses, spies. You can’t do that if you’re still running around openly displaying a “I’m the NRA” sticker or a Gadsen Flag. Sorry. Take your Recruits and:

*Toughen yourselves and them up. Strengthening exercises, Camping, survival courses, hand to hand combat courses. Even getting them to let their TV gather dust to do anything that will be of benefit. Demonstrations, projects, meetings, find places to hide out.

*Shooting, and lots of it! Paintball to teach tactics. A range of some sort for battle rifle practice. Airguns and required turning in of targets for their own practice-the airsoft guns are coming along as viable training tools and as soon as they perfect a paintball that’ll cycle through them you should splurge a couple hundred bucks and get some guns and paintballs. Group buy ammo, parts, food, knowledge, a legal fiction to acquire property not under your own name, nor any connection to you. Have your stashes in several small units throughout the area you figure you’re going to operate. The more the better, and, no one person should have knowledge of where all the caches are at. A cache should have ammo for the standard weapon/caliber your group should standardize on. I recommend a military pattern rifle in 7.62NATO, along with spare parts because they’ll break down with all the shooting and abuse you’re gonna heap on them. Enough ammo to refill all your carry mags for a mission. Also, stockpile nonperishable food. Should have lots of calories, carbs, protein, Medical supplies.

You won’t get a lot of recruits. The enemy’s cultural weapons are pretty damn powerful, and their mind control of Americans is exquisite, but not foolproof! On occasion a event will occur that will defy their spin control and b.s., like the live coverage of Hurricane Katrina and their criminal abandonment of a city so people would be screaming for FEMA/Big Brother to save them. All so gangsters wanting a “Las Vegas on the Gulf” can buy property cheaply. Point out the criminal abandonment of the government to their People. A lot of eyes were opened by Katrina, and not all of them are going to be shut again by the system’s lies. Take your opportunities as they come. I have a plan of peaceful political action that can be used, so here’s a excerpt of my essay, “Message to Mr. and Mrs. America” at my blog freedomguide.blogspot.com: Taking back the government-peacefully!

This is the preferable manner of reclaiming our Freedom. To be effective, one must have a understanding of America’s political system as it relates to our cause. We have a president, a vice-president and their agents, a congress, a federal judicial system, and the duplication of this political layout among the states. Beyond that you have the many thousands of county and local governments. So what will work? Take over the presidency? It’s long been proven that unless you have the blessings of the two official parties of this nation, you cannot seriously run for president. Even the president can only do so much because America’s system of government is extremely compartmentalized, so that unless you have a common ideology and party mechanism guiding and controlling the various components, it’s impossible for one man to dictate policy. All a president could do is use the office as a bully pulpit and wake people up. But he would absolutely have to watch his back. Remember JFK?

Congress is made up of 540 members, 100 senators and the rest in the house of representatives. All are elected in staggared election cycles so it would take approximately a decade of successful nationwide campaigning to create a majority party. Yes, congress writes the laws and taking it back is essential in our struggle, but even factoring out the two official parties and their political machines the structure of this body demands a massive political machine of our own. Massive organizations that have a heirarchial structure have been penetrated, subverted and corrupted by our enemies since the beginning of time. It’s a process that to them is a natural as breathing. Then there’s all the fundraising that would be needed, and we’re not rich. The only ones with money in America are the same pack of vampires who’ve been sucking us dry. So a singular, national organization will not be sucessful. Independent and rogue candidates however do have some success. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Tom Tancredo of Colorado, Ron Paul of Texas, and at one time James Trafficant of Ohio represent the successes. Most candidates are attorneys who’ve long ago prostituted themselves. They whore themselves to the political machine that will take them where they want to go. All they want is power, and in exchange they have legislated the monstrosity American government has become. The democrats and republicans, their bosses for all practical purposes appoint these elitists their congressional seats, and they’re prepared to spend whatever cash it takes to retain that seat. Vote fraud of course is part of their arsenal.

It’s likely there are no rich left in these times who would willingly sacrifice their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. They’re either sold out or scared. So any candidates for congress will have to be raised and funded by us. That means we have to do it in a grass roots manner. We have to build not one political machine, but a army of political machines that are independent of one another, yet cooperative. This form of political resistance lends itself naturally to our groups. It will go like this: The group helps other groups form. They in turn during the next local election cycle turn out and get the candidates they choose elected in town and county governments. Much of the oppressive laws plaguing us are drafted and enforced locally. Taking over local governments will not only give the freedom groups relief from local law enforcement harassment, it will give us the tools to revoke and repeal such things as:

*Property taxes that allow the government to seize that home you’re working a lifetime to pay for if you miss one “rent” installment. Those in power whine that property taxes are for the schools and the children, isn’t that what their gambling rackets known as the lotto are for? And they’re willing to make you and yours homeless for the children. All those damned zoning restrictions, regulations, speed trap traffic laws designed to churn up “tax” revenue, laws criminalizing all sorts of things and actions that bother nobody. Think of any local ordinance that seems to have been drafted by a neurotic control freak, the list would be endless! Un-Constitutional, pro criminal gun control legislation. A big part of their program’s disarming us so that we’re helpless and have to rely on them exclusively for protection, establishing dependence. Not that the cops are legally obligated to your personal protection of course.

*Anything that pledges cooperation with state and federal authorities, at least until we take our nation back! When we take back a local government and bring that jurisdiction back into line with the classic tenants of American government, it will be a beacon of light, an example of successful peaceful resistance. It will immediately inspire and launch similar efforts in neighboring communities. Each composed of small, decentralized groups working together on the big problem, so that one day they can afford to bicker on the small stuff-that the Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Christian Patriots and Conservatives currently do. So together, with control of enough cities and townships, the combined efforts of those groups can take over counties. With control of enough counties, an entire state can be taken over by our groups. Why take that next step? The list of things we can do when we take back our local governments is vast, but then there would be the call to centralize governmental control with state and federal authorities. So when this begins we must be as aggressive as possible-being examples to others, advising, and most importantly WE MUST NOT FIGHT AMONGST OURSELVES OVER THINGS WE CAN DEBATE AFTER WE RETAKE OUR LAND! Backbiting will be exploited by our enemies, it will be our biggest downfall.

And if we can take the nation back, There are many things we must do immediately, as soon as we can take back control of America’s destiny. (1)Secure our borders from any further infiltration. Whatever that takes, whatever manpower is available, we must find a way to seal up thousands of miles of hinterland border, and many thousands of miles more of coastline. This will take bringing our troops and ships home, and in effect end America’s era of being used as a tool of global elitists. At the same time, a heightened state of alert must be maintained if another power were to take advantage of our transistional phase and attempt some economic or military adventure against our interests. America will be painfully contracting from it’s global economic empire as we attempt to revive a self-sufficient free republic and the last thing we’ll need is for Muslims seeking revenge against America, or China rolling the dice on a military adventure against us.

(2)Impose a flexible series of tariffs so that no matter where on Earth a imported good is made, it’s cost after going through customs is just a few percent more than one made in America, with all the taxes still imposed. This must be implemented by law for I’d calculate twenty years; because this is the minimum time required to rebuild America’s manufacturing economy. The rest of the world’s just going to have to learn to live economically without the American consumer, and the American consumer is going to have to learn basic economics. It will be a horrifically shocking adjustment, and lead to a economic collapse-of the megacorporations. It’s the bitterest medicine, but America and Americans have become almost terminally sick with the current system imposed upon us and those that don’t immediately take steps to save themselves will need some hard lessons quick to bring them back to reality.

AND WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO? The Most important thing you can do is Pray. Don’t do it in some new-world-order mega-church and tithe to some blowdried huckster. Do it like Jesus taught. Find a quiet place, quiet your mind, and open your heart. God WILL talk to you, and convey some insight. If you can’t listen, it’s because you’re out of practice listening, so practice. Eventually God will talk to you, and it’s in your best interest to listen! God wants to help you! He isn’t looking to burn you for eternity for your petty imperfections. He’s looking to liberate His People, all of us. He won’t liberate a people if they’re dead from living the way the world has brainwashed them to live. God doesn’t want his people to sit around like couch potatoes, waiting to be saved from the Last Days scenario that is happening all around us. He wants you to put what gifts he has given you to good use, and then He will protect you from whatever is beyond your control.

Why Freegan? Wednesday, May 15 2013 

An Attack on Consumption – In Defense of Donuts

NOTE: This is the text of the original freegan manifesto, which appeared in February 2000. The zine’s author, according to some sources, is Warren Oakes, drummer of the band, Against Me! We didn’t change anything from the original zine obtained from the Death Metal Militia Distro/Green Monkey Collective. (Copy of the paper zine with fun and funky illustrations visible on the zine library, here!) If you lack a printer or are reading this at a library with no printers, etc, and want paper copies, try writing to them at PO Box 17838 / Clearwater, FL 34622 or write to them via email at clearwaterfnb@hotmail.com for more info. We do not know if this collective still exists but we hope they do.

Freeganism is essentially an anti-consumeristic ethic about eating; asking “Why freegan?” is essentially asking “Why not consumerism?” So here is a quick criticism of consumerism.

Treading lightly on the Earth – Our high impact, produce & consume society puts a very intense strain on the Earth and her resources. Rainforests are clear-cut to provide more land for food production. Food production also consumes vast quantities of fresh water, one of our fastest-depleting resources. And then there is the packaging! Go look in your trash right now and most likely it will be filled with plastic, paper, and Styrofoam packaging from food products (if not you get mad props!). Go look in any trash or landfill and you will see literally tons & tons of packaging. The act of consumption is the transformation of natural land and resources into money for corporations and acres of trash in landfills. (This is not a good thing.)

Anti-Capitalism – If you are an “anti-capitalist”, what better way to protest the economy than withdrawing from it and never using money?

Working Sucks – Where does the money you spend come from? You or your folks working long hours at a dehumanizing job, most likely. You don’t have to compromise yourself and your humanity to the evil demon of wage-slavery! Working sucks and if a little scavenging can keep you from needing a job than go jump in a dumpster! Even if you do need to work to pay your bills, think about how much less you would have to work if you didn’t have to buy food.

Privilege – We, in America, have so much and so many people all over the world have so little. Why do we have more? Because we’re number one! Other folks are literally starving so that we can have fully-stocked shelves at our supermarkets and health food stores. If this concerns you (as it should) you can protest the unbalanced distribution in America and the world by sacrificing some of your privilege and feeding yourself off of the ridiculous excess of food instead of consuming products from that supermarket shelves we are so unjustly privileged to have access to.

The Ultimate Boycott – By not consuming, you are boycotting EVERYTHING! All the corporations, all the stores, all the pesticides, all the land and resources wasted, the capitalist system, the all-oppressive dollar, the wage slavery, the whole burrito! That should help you get to sleep at night.

Your Life – Think about how your life is wrapped up in the game of consumptions: think about the job you hate, the ugly billboards in your community, the horrible waste, the stink, the fast pace and lack of compassion that surround you and understand that as you consume it, it consumes you. How much of your day is spent dealing with money? How does money affect your ideas about other people? Think abut how much more to life there is and find it, do it, go!

Criticism of Veganism:

The vegan theory is essentially a boycott of any products that injure animals in their production. The vegan consumers are flexing their monetary muscle and “voting with their dollars” for the products that don’t injure animals. These dollars are voting for coca-cola, big corporate grocery stores, greasy-fast food (we all know Taco Bell vegans), and worse. Shouldn’t truly conscientious folks seek something more? I don’t vote because no matter who I vote for, the government always wins and when you “vote with your dollars”, consumerism always wins, capitalism always wins. So…. make a list of all the unethical practices that really piss you off and make a list of all the corporations and products you want to boycott. Veganism is a good first step, but is your only concern animals? I made this list and when I was done, I couldn’t really justify buying anything, I couldn’t get behind any aspect of the corporate death consumer machine so I decided to boycott everything. I still spend money sometimes (I love going out for Thai food) but I try to be very conscientious about my consumption. Besides the concern that veganism as an ethic for eating stops short, it is also still a very high impact lifestyle. The packaging from vegan food doesn’t take up less space in the landfill or consume less resources just because the food is vegan. The whole produce and consume dynamic is still played out, but the setting is a fancy health food store instead of a supermarket. Veganism is not a threat, or a challenge to the wasteful practices of our capitalist society.

How Freegan?

Freeganism, also known as ethical eating, voluntary simplicity, monetary minimalism, the ultimate boycott, etc is fun and easy. Here are some basic tips:

Quality of Food – Freegans widely vary in their concern for health – some freegans gorge themselves on dumpstered donuts and some are still totally vegan, but get all their food for free. Most fall in the happy medium who would rather eat a load of bread with whey in it than make a $2 donation to the corporate death machine. Some freegans eat “edgy” food (on the edge of edibility) and some don’t take chances. Some folks are even “meagan” – they eat meat if they get it for free.

Quantity of Food – A lot, everywhere. You have all seen that Food Not Bombs flyer about how many million pounds of food is wasted; well, it is true. The food is plentiful. The food is good.

Strategy:

Dumpster Diving! – The best, easiest way to get the most food. Just head to your local grocery store, produce store, bagel and donut shop, bakery, K-mart (expired shelf goodies), and open up the dumpster and take a look. Don’t be afraid to climb in and dig around! Have fun, go with your friends! If you just find a big, scary compactor behind the store (a bunch of big supermarkets have these), then you can’t get in, but you can fight back. Start a local DLF (Dumpster Liberation Front!) and stick it to those compactors: superglue them so they don’t work or hit them with a bat or pee on them or paint them up; have fun – compactors are the enemy. P.S. Food is not the only thing in dumpsters! Happy scavenging!

Give-Aways! – A lot of small, independent places and even some bigger stores will give you food they are about to throw out if you just ask them for it. Also, free lunches and soup kitchens! Make sure you aren’t taking food from someone who really needs it if you don’t, but most places have a lot of extra to go around. If you can get government food or food stamps, go for it! Go to Food Not Bombs and help out, then take some extra soup and bagels for the road… Just don’t be afraid to ask and the food will come to you.

Plate scraping/Table-Diving – Go in a restaurant and either ask a worker if you can eat plate scraps or just sit with a drink and hop up and grab plates off tables when diners leave and finish off what they left. In fast food places you can pull half-drunk sodas and half-eaten orders of French fries out of the trash. Me and my dear sweet friend Peter once sat in Denny’s for hours eating table dives. After a while, diners would intentionally leave food on their plates for us or actually bring leftovers to our table. If a waitress/waiter lets this go on, leave a tip! I have heard stories of plate-scrapers in the mall food court getting offered money to buy some food– free cash if you want to work the pity. It is possible that you will get harassed and kicked out so this method is not fool-proof.

Wild foraging/Gardening – Get a book on edible plants and start looking around; there is a lot more edible food growing all around us than we realize. Also, if you live down the street from orange and grapefruit vines, don’t buy oranges and grapefruit! If you live down in West Palm Beach, don’t buy cans of coconut milk for Thai curry. Learn what grows in your area and find it or plant it. You can start your own garden in your yard or in that empty lot up the street. You don’t need a lot of land of gourmet soil, just some dirt. Maybe your city even has a community garden and you and your friends could get a plot. For seeds, remember all those great fruits and veggies you just dumpster-dove? Plant the seeds and stick the bad parts, stems and excess in a pile outside with some dirt. As the plant matter decomposes it will be magically transformed into super-rich compost, which makes a great fertilizer. Your newly planted seeds will be thrilled.

Barter – Set up a local network that trades and/or shares goods and services. “I’ll give you my extra tend pounds of broccoli if you fix my bike.” “Hey dudes! Feast at my house! We made a great find and I love sharing the wealth of the dumpster!”

Scams/Shoplifting – There are a slew of shady ways to score free food…always let your conscience be your guide!

Shoplifting – There is some debate over how freegan this really is because you are still creating an empty shelf that must be restocked, but it is more freegan than forking over big bucks. This is a more direct attack on the store selling the goods, not the producer (unless you hyper-boycott a product: pick something you can’t stand and consistently get it off the shelves, steal it, break it, hide it, just eliminate it and the store will eventually stop selling it) so you should consider if you are putting a ma & pa organic veggie stand out of business or just chipping away at a corporate giant.

Employee Theft – Some folks believe this to be more ethical than shoplifting because it is a trade-off: they steal your time and energy and you steal their food. If you work somewhere that sucks, hook yourself up, hook up your friends, hook up strangers, hook up your local FNB! I have heard tales of a kid who feeds a three-person household of his workplace acquisitions from the health food store. They eat damn good, too! You can also get the insider scoop and may be able to intercept food headed for the dumpster.

Returns – Example: we just dove a bunch of jars of mayonnaise. We don’t want to eat it, so we return it to the store, say we bought it and couldn’t use it/don’t want it and trade it in for cash or good food or store credit. Some stores throw away anything that is returned that costs less than $50, so you can find expensive stuff, in a package, with a receipt!

Extending the Ethic – Withdrawal from the consumer death culture doesn’t have to end with food:

Energy – Use solar energy, make a solar oven, hang our wash on a line, don’t use the air conditioner or heater when you can put on/take off clothes, open a window or use a fan, wash your dishes by hand – dishwashers consume a lot of energy and water, turn off lights when you aren’t using them.

Water – Don’t shower often and when you do, instead of showering, “go swimming” in the shower with a friend – it is fun, explorative, liberating, and consumes less water! Don’t flush when you pee! It won’t hurt you, pee just sits in the toilet not bothering anyone; it doesn’t warrant the 10 gallons per flush just to get rid of it. Wait until you get a good healthy poop in there and then flush it all away. If you don’t like the smell of pee stagnating in the toilet, pee outside or dilute your urine (7 water to 1 pee) and fertilize with it, or drink it (Gandhi drank a cup of his own pee every day). Also, you can make manure out of your own poop! Or… dumpster dive some adult diapers and have a party where everyone straps one on and fills it up — no water wasted.

Carlessness – Cars are gross and expensive, not to mention the gas companies, who are as evil as can be (look at Iraq, do you really want to fund the slaughter of innocent people?). Ride a bike or a bus or put a bike on the bus or hitchhike or walk or roller skate or canoe or skateboard or hop a train or if you are gonna use a car than carpool, for Pete’s sake! Or have 10 people split the cost of a community car that you all share. Or at least convert your engine to run on recycled vegetable oil. (Yes, this can be done!)

Homebrew – Don’t buy alcohol! Alcohol corporations are big and scary and perpetuate fucked up gender roles and beauty myths with their advertising. Brew your own wine and beer!

Get a Cup! – Get a big, durable plastic cup with a lid and a fork or spoon and carry it with you at all times. This will dramatically reduce the amount of disposable silverware and bowls/plates/cups/bottles you consume. Instead of buying a bottle of beverage, fill up your cup with water. Eat out of it too. If you get one that seals, you can take home restaurant leftovers in it instead of in Styrofoam!

Get a Hanky! – Carry a handkerchief with you and you won’t need tissues or paper towels and it is handy to have for spills, tears etc.

Squat – If you can live in an abandoned building for free, do it!

Stretch Stretch what you have! Before you throw something away, ask yourself (repeatedly) “will I ever use this for anything? Do I know anyone who will?” Before you buy anything figure out if you can make it, borrow it, do without, fix the one you already have or get it for free somehow. How long will it last, how often will it get used, can you share it with others, can you recycle it or reuse it when it stops working? If it costs $5, ask yourself if it is worth an hour of your life. If not, do without it. Repair your clothes, buy second-hand, share! Fix old stuff instead of buying new stuff. Learning how to fix things yourself saves you money and brings independence and self-reliance. Free yourself from the consumer mindset – the solution to all your problems can not be found at the shopping mall!

Conclusion:

There are two options for existence: 1) waste your life working to get money to buy things that you don’t need and help destroy the environment or 2) live a full satisfying life, occasionally scavenging or working your self-sufficiency skills to get the food and stuff you need to be content, while treading lightly on the earth, eliminating waste, and boycotting everything. Go!
