“Tell me more.”
“Well, what if that person’s idea of utopia is different from my idea and that person has bigger weapons? Isn’t that what happened in Russia?”
I realized those were valid questions.
My friend continued.
“I’d be happy if government would just get out of the way, let me live my life, let me do business with those I want to do business with, and leave me the hell alone. That would be utopia for me.”
I realized my friend was saying something profound.
A world of love and peace isn’t something that can be enforced upon a society. It is something that happens as each person practices love and peace.
The same is true for prosperity and freedom.
The same is true for openness and transparency.
The current internet excitement over the forecasted arrests that will remove those blocking our prosperity and holding us as slaves may be misplaced energy if we don’t already know how to live in a world of love and peace, prosperity and freedom, and openness and transparency.
Like the adult elephant that believes it is still held by a rope that bound it as a baby, if we don’t know how to step into freedom, we won’t.
Will we know how to respond if we suddenly have freedom?
Will we know how to respond if we suddenly have prosperity?
What would we do with our days if debt disappeared, the IRS closed, and technology allowed us to live at a fraction of the current prices?
Would we wait around for someone to tell us how to live their version of utopia?
Or, would we step into this new world with curiosity and courage?
Many of those who are excited about the potential arrests believe that our new leaders will be loving and benevolent. They anticipate help from beyond. They look for peaceful ETs to set up utopia.
What if their idea of utopia is different from ours?
Will the rules they establish for their utopia put us back into slavery and poverty?
The answer is obvious. Utopia enforced by rules and regulations is not utopia.
It is totalitarianism.
Utopia only comes through freedom. It comes as each person releases the need to infringe upon the rights of another person. It comes as we provide true value in our financial exchanges.
For this to take place, we can no longer have police states and fiat currency. One person can no longer enforce his will upon another person.
The forecasted arrests are important only to the degree that they allow each person to practice the privilege of taking responsibility for his or her world and living a livelihood of love and peace, prosperity and freedom, and openness and transparency.
May I suggest that we go ahead and live this way now? Who knows? If enough of us live this way today, it is possible the arrests may not even be necessary.
