The Freedom Plot
How We Can Replace Tyranny, Taxation, & Non-Stop Wars...
Without Violence Or Stooping To Politics... Just You, Me, And A Small Peaceful Minority... Help Create Freedom For All Today
Under Construction - Freedom lovers may enjoy some of the ideas here now.
Name: Don Winfield Re: "Our Freedom Plot will launch with a simple book on the Philosophy of Individual Freedom." We're under construction until the book is finished or we extract and provide parts for you to read."
Once upon a time I was a proud taxpayer.
Yeah I know, I was pretty stupid.
I use Doug Casey's definition: "Stupid" as "Not necessarily of low intelligence; but, unwitting actions that contribute to self-destruction."
Here's a biggee I learned from my many mistakes. When I own my mistakes, that helps me think outside of the box. Outside the box is where innovation thrives.
You and I are learning. We have made mistakes and learned lessons over the years.
We have learned to question politics, politicians, and the politically powerful.
Does "Might Makes Right" make sense?
When we question political power, we see structures built on Power Over Others (POO). And at some time in our lives we have believed POO was the true means to make our worlds a better place.
We too have imagined that if we had enough power over others, we could make everything better for everyone.
This belief in POO is responsible for our failure to change our worlds for the better.
Battling for who has the POO> doesn't get rid of POO>.
As Walt Kelly's Pogo Cartoon Character once put it, "We Have Met The Enemy And He Is Us."
All of us, at one time, in some way, have believed if we had enough Power Over Others, we could make certain people or the world a better place.
Our attempts to create Power Over Others (POO) is stupid. POO> may be the one source of insanity that leads to evil in our worlds.
You and I were force-fed beliefs that are wrong and unproven by schools, family, friends, and media.
For a time we believed.
We still hold many beliefs and blind spots that hinder our thinking... And - more likely than not - we always will hold some truly stupid beliefs we're not aware of.
Our minds tend to jump to the defense of our beliefs when any of our beliefs are challenged.
I learned that I tended to protect my beliefs when I was trying to figure out how I was so smart while other people were so blind even after I explained something to them.
It's embarrassing but true. And I had to be hit repeatedly with examples that shattered my certainty about how clever I am.
We improve once we "Discover and Remember:
1.We ain't perfect!
2. Other people are amazing!"
Humility may be no more than remembering our own ability to make mistakes and the incredible ability of others. Which allows us to remain proud of our own ability without having to put down others to feel better by comparison.
This means if we call those who disagree with us, Brain Dead, Sheeple, Zombies and other infamous names, we are being totally counterproductive. We're being stupid.
We can help people discover new ideas once we learn to avoid spring-loaded traps that snap someone's mind shut if we attack their beliefs... Or if they think we have.
For instance, we can choose between statements or questions. Statements create arguments where questions may open minds. And we must display our willingness to listen... Really listen or we can't understand them and the world around us.
- "Do you think we have too much government?" Versus telling someone "We have way too much government!"
- Tell a postal employee that; "The Post Office Sucks!" and they will almost always defend it.
Ask them: "Can the Post Office be improved?" or "if you were in charge, "What would you change first?" and be prepared to listen for a long time.
- "Do you think our government has ever worked?" This is a tricky question because we were taught about the historical greatness of government in government-provided schools?
While private schools and home schools have to use some government-approved textbooks. Then non-public students must pass tests provided by bureaucrats saying how great our bureaucratic systems are...
So were we taught "The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth?"
Or were we taught current opinion, wishful thinking, and propaganda to program us to believe what we were taught are all facts forever true?
- Do gargantuan governments work for our benefit or to benefit master manipulators and their puppets?
- Have we been fed propaganda to create the illusion that our political circuses are what provides a system for everything good?
Are today's problems because we aren't giving those who say they should rule us enough of our money and enough control over our lives?
- And why are other people running our lives - instead of their own?
- How is it that everyone's life should be run by someone else?
Remember we have good news about our own power.
We are going to share and explore different ways we can transform our worlds without politics.
I love unraveling paradoxes.
“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.”
I hope you'll enjoy exploring revelations about how we are manipulated, stripped of our money and property, and deliberately stressed by ruling elites...
Manipulators know stress interferes with our thinking. Under stress we are unlikely to change no matter how beneficial change might be.
When we use the word "Freedom" we mean "Individual Freedom (IF)."
Confusion creators use the word "Freedom" many different ways because they know people respond well to the word "Freedom" so they misuse it seeking followers who are confused about their true purposes.
It's helpful to understand how words are used if we expect to communicate with others and clarify our own thinking.
There is no one right way to use a word. Words were made before dictionaries. New words are created non-stop. The definitions of existing words change. Dictionaries change to follow our word usage.
We do not own our languages. Any attempt to control someone else's use of words is censorship and an attempt to manipulate their minds. We respect other people's choices of what words mean to them.
Our solution to manipulation of language to control or influence the thinking of others is; we explain what we mean.
Let's remember we might need to tell people what we mean when we use a word in case they use a word(s) differently from us.
Back to my stupid beliefs: I bragged that I paid city, county, state, and federal governments more in taxes than I paid myself.
I thought I was doing my duty to support my countrymen. It didn't occur to me that I was feeding our oppressors with funding for more controls, tax collectors, prisons, and oppression.
I didn't stop to think about "What is a country?" and "What Is My Country?"
I was in the nightclub business. I had to buy licenses from the state, city, and county that cost me $1,800 if I remember correctly. That bought me the privilege of paying them a percentage of gross on liquor sales of 21.3% or thereabouts plus sales taxes on food and beer.
The Feds got tax money too. They taxed the distillers.
I was an unpaid serf who collected taxes and social security taxes for the convenience and benefit of the government. Employers have to match the money collected from employees for the social security Ponzi Scheme.
One way to look at things is that you and I are owned by politicians who squander our money and run our lives. They conquer other countries and tell everyone they're doing it in our name for our benefit.
One day, after my 3 nightclub ventures went bankrupt, I began to question the value of gargantuan government.
I can't tell the entire story here and it's not needed. The above was what kickstarted my education about all the ways government didn't work.
This was followed by years of research and unsuccessful attempts to discover how to make governments (city, county, state, federal) better.
Quick summary of what followed over the next 30 years or so.
I went to democratic party meetings and couldn't stand some of their ideas on economics. They also didn't seem very consistent about protecting the civil rights of others and wars.
I went to republican party meetings and couldn't stand their ideas on war, censorship, and controlling the behavior of other people. They also didn't seem to be very consistent on our rights to control our money, property, and lives.
Rights - For practical purposes, we will not use the word "rights," because it means so many different things to so many different people that it gives politicians outstanding opportunities to confuse everyone.
The definition of "Rights" has been corrupted to imply duties in a free society for the benefit of those with rights created by political power.
"Rights" are a continuing source of conflict as people attempt to control who owes who what, how much, who decides, and who gets to transform their wishes into laws enforced by cops using everyone's money.
We honor "Individual Freedom" which does not require duties by others for the benefit of those with political power.
We do not spend our time chasing leverage to control taxation, regulations, and legalized violence over others.
A quest for political power to end or reduce political power is little more than a cat chasing its tail.
Then I discovered the Libertarian Party LP and went from not knowing what Libertarian meant to LP State Chair in about 90 days.
No I don't think the LP is a solution either. I did meet some great people through the LP who helped me see why the LP was flawed by its quest for political power and its attempts to be like the democratic and republican parties.
I was State Coordinator for the Fully Informed Jury Association.
I was involved with many different groups attempting to limit legal excess and corruption by using legal strategies to limit the excesses of those I came to think of as government gangsters.
I studied, supported, and promoted organizations in the areas of privatization, health freedom, right to petition, and even tried to convince and rally legislators to pass new laws protecting our freedoms when they wouldn't honor state and federal constitutions that were supposed to be protecting us.
I consider that a prime example of temporary insanity on my part.
Those few with political power willing to help were massively outnumbered by those in love with the power, prestige, paychecks, and perks of government power to benefit themselves and the monopolies that helped them get reelected.
I produced seminars on taking back control and responsibility for our own lives.
I figured choosing seminar speakers was the fastest way for me and others like me to learn and explore the cutting edge to create Individual Freedom.
When we die, do we want to have lived as someone else's property?
Do we want a life that we were individually in charge of?
Who is responsible for our lives?
Why Not Freedom instead of bureaucrats, politicians, and their enforcers?
I stumbled through a cleverly designed mouse maze... There are better ways and better pathways than the ones I staggered through.
This site can help you shave decades from the path I was on to understand Individual Freedom. Learning from others provides a shorter path... sometimes.
We can fix the problems created by out of control politicians, bureaucrats, and the monopoly powers they promote, preserve, and protect
We cannot expect those who benefit from creating and managing problems to stop feeding their power, prestige, paychecks, privileges, and perversions (Addiction to Power Over Others, POO> for short) to release their stranglehold over all of us.
Although estimates differ, the combined on and off the book federal debt that our children and their children's children can expect to inherit is over $190 Trillion Dollars.
The exact amount is probably impossible to calculate. If not already there or well past, DC debt will eventually zoom past the $190 Trillion Mark.
A $190+ Trillion means indentured servitude for the many who will be owned by the few. The new slave chains are debts.
We can choose to accept responsibility for that multi-trillion debt problem to provide ourselves the authority to eliminate it.
DC is the seat of an empire that seeks more and more power. Every problem that gets worse, provides them excuses to demand more power to handle the problems they create, promote, and protect.
One easy way to increase their power is to promote hate.
Who thinks that politics promotes love, tolerance, and the protection of Individual Freedom?
There Is One Source that Grows Problems in Our World...
This One Source is POO> Power Over Others...
The one solution is Individual Freedom...
This website is about how we can replace tyranny using one solution which is Individual Freedom.
Please note we don't say we can create a world without problems... But we can eliminate the major source of problem creation, promotion, and protection... POO>.
We can, individually, wash away the power of those who use problems as an excuse to tax, regulate, sponsor wars, promote hate, create Ponzi Schemes, Fraud, and Counterfeit Money.
POO> addicts want to turn all existing and future generations into slaves or Indentured Servants who can never get out of debt. POO> allows the appearance of legality to con games, monopolies, and more of everything bad and evil in our worlds.
And Yes we can change our worlds without getting involved in politics, violent revolution of any sort, name-calling, hate, or any of the many dead-end pathways the politically powerful encourage us to take.
The Politically Powerful want us to join them in fights for power.
We don't need their power. The politically powerful need ours.
All we do is take back our own and they lose.
We take it back individually. And not all the armies on the planet can stop an idea and a decision to act on it.
It's ideas versus armies, unlimited wealth, and POO>.
This is a foundational idea. Where these ideas lead are a part of what gives Godzilla ED.
This site will introduce choices and innovations we can make - one person at a time - until the politically powerful have no controlling power over any of us.
Ever Heard "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again then expecting different results"?
And "Persevere until you succeed"
Paradoxes are frequently ideas stated in such a way that they hint at other ideas. Paradoxes can make us question, speculate, and innovate. I love them.
We'll explore more paradoxes and conundrums on our paradox pages.
What do you think about restating the above as something like, "Insanity is doing something you don't care a lot about over and over again and expecting different results."
But if you love it...
Persevere until you succeed...
But expect to fail, learn, question, change, or leapfrog to your success.
Yes, sometimes success may mean we have to repeat the same failure over and over until we find the right circumstances or person.
Think of it as: We are a key in search of the correct lock. Faster failure will help but shaving our key might make it work... or not.
Which is correct?
Neither, Both, and It Depends...
Many sayings are slogans so we don't have to think. When we find conflicting slogans, the clash of words can provide some very useful thinking opportunities to find missing insights.
We are not keys. We are not locks. Repetition is not insanity. Words are not the thing nor the situation.
Words are tools for expression and thinking. They are not walls to create phrases that box us in.
Why is that important?
We need to free our thinking in order to become better innovators and destroy the power of POO>
- I assumed everyone wanted to know how everything will work when politicians, bureaucrats, courts, and police don't run our lives to supply what politicians claim we need and only POO> can provide.
- You don't have to spend over 30 years, as I and others have, trying to learn who'll build roads, fight wars, provide utilities, time traffic lights, protect us from guys with guns and masks who use force and violence to get their way and who aren't the police?
- These questions are Wascally Wabbitts. If we try to know everything, we are on unending quests that keep us from the benefits of what we know.
- Surprisingly, we don't have to know everything... We only need to know why the best answers appear without POO>
Let's change the debate from Who gets the POO>
Which is better... Individual Freedom or POO>?
Despite all the POO Believers, we only need about 3% who understand and choose Individual Freedom. 3% should be about the right number to Undo the Evils of "Might Makes Right"
The Ends Never Justify the Means Because the Means Normally Become the Ends... No matter the intent...
We must plant the seeds to grow the world we want to see after the failure and fall of tyranny.
In strength they see us as weeds that destroy the neat little rows of arrogant and ignorant monopoly planners.
We can create abundance in a world without central planning. We are the accumulated genius despised by central planners and other assorted control freaks.
We don't know the exact form our actions will take. Our mission is to tap into and unleash the accumulated genius of each of us. We can create better worlds for all.
We can create Health Freedom to defeat Politically Created, Protected, and Promoted Medical Monopoly Which Misuses Our Resources...
IHF (Individual Health Freedom) can reduce costs by 90% and improve our health, healing, and fitness technologies by 10 times. Then we do it again.
We can create and promote 90/10 Individual Health Freedom Choices to replace the worst and most expensive medical profit creation program in the world.
If that sounds a bit much, research the most expensive medical system in the world. Then search for the worst performing in the world.
If other systems cost 1/10th of ours and achieve better results, that has to mean we can do worlds better than the current price-gouging medical-monopoly mess that is protected from competition by POO>.
Other systems are not quite as corrupt as the one created by US Monopolies, Cartels, and Political Stupidity.
Individual Freedom can unleash better and affordable, health and healing choices everywhere.
Innovation and Competition Can Make Entire Industries Obsolete...
The automobile wiped out most of the horse and buggy industry...
Computers wiped out typewriters and many other traditional products and services...
The internet has revolutionized marketing...
Innovators who took to the skies to bypass landlines and Cell phones were responsible for destroying the Ma Bell Landline Monopoly and the Black Handset and Princess Phone Product Monopoly...
Political power responds to its incentives. The technologies with the money and power to influence politicians, bureaucrats, and the media are always yesterday's technologies.
Free Market Innovations make yesterday's most profitable and powerful technologies obsolete. Money saving, industry destroying innovations arrive despite POO> and never because of it.
With Every Competitor to Government Services We Create, Promote, and Choose to Use, We Wash Away POO from All Of Those Addicted to Tyranny
According to research, when we do something as simple as a free registration now, we are highly likely to make decisions that favor individual freedom in the future.
What we don't do something now, when our memory is fresh and our attention is focused, with our choice in front of us, and easy to take, we are less likely to make a good choice, because other things grab our attention, we lose our focus on why we're here now, and it can be time consuming and inconvenient to find our way back

How can 3% change the world?
You've heard people calling other people sheep.
Following the crowds is a good thing. It's an evolutionary benefit. It is a shortcut until something deserves our time and attention for good reason.
We don't have time in our lives to figure out everything for ourselves from scratch. We pay attention to and learn from others.
In marketing, many products and services sweep away their competition when they go viral. That happens when products have never been seen before, too.
Revolutions don't need a multi-billion-dollar marketing budget.
POO services are the most overpriced, worst performing on the planet when they are not just out and out stupid. They can't exist in the form they are today without funding, protection, and propaganda supported by guns and POO>
A small enthusiastic minority can lead others once they understand the benefits of Individual Freedom for themselves.
As long as we're trying to: be a political force... reform politicians... or grab the reins of power we lose. We have fought POO by trying to gain control over POO for thousands of years. It just doesn't work.
Anyone who participates in politics is reinforcing their belief in POO>

P.S. Power Over Others Corrupts and Makes People Stupid Too...
Corruption starts at the top then works its way down.
The politically powerful are the main sources with the time, money, connections, and power to promote hate, war, politically protected monopolies, and other forms of stupidity for their own benefit.
POO> addicts use our money to pay for everything. The POO> elite can always afford more stupidity because they use our money and control our choices.
Our choices and what we've created belong to us or them. It can't be both.
The POO> pyramid pretends we are free because they give us bad choices for their benefit. Individual Freedom means other people respect "No!" and our Freedom to create and select alternatives to the status quo.
The only way to transform hate, wars, politically protected monopolies, and other forms of stupidity is replace political POO with Individual Freedom, Personal Responsibility, Innovation, Free Markets, and a simple "No" to those who want us to give them our power, our freedom, and our future.
