Hi Russell
Thanks for the links...ther is a lot of entertaining stuff in there.

A couple of questions:

1. Is "The State" the arch villain in your reality?

2. Does The State restrict you in your daily practice of Ontological Anarchy?

This "Ontological Anarchy" thing seems like a bit of fun. I am presuming there are some short-cuts...perhaps a few basics that be left in place to kick-start the day...a few things like:
#1 Crap in the crapper
#2 Be nice to other folks
#3 "I" can read and write

Umh....is there some kind of a relationship between "Ontological Anarchy" and "Solypsism", do you think?
russell higgs: .....

1: If The State WAS an Arch Villain, what sort of costume would it wear?

and would it clash with my Lime Green and Pink ensemble?

2: A few years back, when I chose not to wear any clothes for a continuous and indefinite period of time, the state reacted by remanding me in a prison segregation cell on non-imprisonable charges.

I remained naked, but my spatial and social liberty had been reduced by the state, even though I had NOT been found guilty of any wrong doing.

Of course eventually I was victorious and after a month the charges were dropped and I walked naked out of the court.

So I guess the answer to your second question is that sometimes the state ATTEMPTS to interfere. And that persuades many citizens that it is not worth bothering trying to step outside of prescribed reality.

THE STATE IS A STATE OF MIND.

as for your question re "solypsism". I'll think about my reply and come back to you on that later.

What I will say is this.....

The current system, which is dominated by Corporate Militarism and is heavily backed up by Religion, is a system that encourages Alienation, Fear, Mistrust, Greed and Aggression.

There is no single cure for the problems of the world. Existence is complex, thankfully. But it is important to continually encourage each other to SEEK OUT and EXPERIMENT with ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF BEING.
THE STATE IS A STATE OF MIND.

The State is an idea which cannot be harmed by violence.

IDEAS CAN ONLY BE ATTACKED BY BETTER IDEAS.

"All power ultimately derives from consent, whether it be willingly given or based on reluctant compliance or that derived from strict enforcement of governmental law."

"This can be summed up by saying that all rule is permitted by the ruled."

"Systemic revolution grows out of the disintegration of consent and not violence."

"Nothing permanent was ever solved by violence."

"Public buildings may be destroyed, public officials murdered, but such efforts will never bring about the destruction of the idea of the State."

"The State is a state of mind, an idea which cannot be harmed by violence. Ideas can only be attacked with better ideas."
