Unlearn to Learn How to Handle Freedom and Anarchy

Conditioning is strong. Expecting people to change and function a different way when they are conditioned into a certain way of living is not going to happen without new information. What they previously learned might be wrong, and they need to unlearn in order to relearn again. Without teaching or sharing information to help others "unlearn what they have learned", as Yoda says, then change isn't likely going to happen.

Internal, External Anarchy and Monarchy


“THE natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of nature for his rule." ― John Locke




Right = Correct = True = Moral = Natural Law = No harm done = Good
Wrong = Incorrect = False = Immoral = not Natural Law = Harm done = Evil




Anarchy, etymologically broken down into it's component parts has a completely different meaning than what people today imagine the concept to actually be. If you ask somebody on the street what they would define anarchy as, what do you think their answer would be? Chaos? Well, let's look at the word itself. Anarchy comes from two Greek words. "An"meaning without and "Arkhos" meaning Chief/ Ruler. Therefore, when combined it makes the word "anarkhos", which translated to the English language is Anarchy. It's the same word with the same meaning. We learn that the word does not mean chaos but is literally defined as No Rulers/ No Masters. Does that sound like chaos to you? I didn't think so. Actually, if the world were to have no masters/ no rulers, that would appear to be, more so, a lot like order rather than chaos.



Giving people complete freedom is ideal, but we don't live that way yet. Without the knowledge and responsibility developed to understand how to live free, our behavior doesn't produce successful outcomes in the short term. We can learn from failures and eventually "get it right". Chaos is a teacher. But that takes time and willingness to want to learn, unlearn, and relearn how to do better.




Maybe after many generations people would figure out how to live in freedom, responsibility, with rules and moral law, "organically" without actively trying to figure it out. But just sticking people into a new environment that they don't understand, and expecting them to quickly learn how to do things properly, is unrealistic. They are conditioned with another way of living. Truth takes time, and unconditioning ourselves takes time as well.




Children need to be raised into awareness to become free thinkers and responsible in life. We don't just drop a newborn or growing child and kick them out to go live their own life. They need to be raised. Those who have knowledge, and understand things, can teach those who don't so that everyone can have the same understanding. We can help raise consciousness of others so that they can live within the boundaries of freedom within moral law.




An true moral anarchistic model can only succeed if people create within the philosophy of that model, which can't be done right now since many people don't even understand what anarchy is: freedom, responsibility, law, truth.




You can't create something you don't know how to create. The world at large doesn't understand anarchy much, but many on Steemit do. We have can make this place work better as a model for how to live in the real world, if we want. But it's a long, tedious, tiresome process to learn and arrive at a common grounded basis of understanding together.




Humanity has a long history of mistakes. We need to learn from the past in order to not repeat the same mistakes into the future. Ignoring all the trials and tribulations of the people in the past, who have taught us lessons not to repeat, is rather foolish. Setting kids up in a new area with no rules, and having them try to figure things out, isn't going to get to a true moral anarchistic way of living. That's starting all over, not building and standing on the shoulders of those who came before us. Lord of the Flies is an example of how well that works out.




One way is of reinventing the wheel, to have people learn in a causal relationship with reality over and over, starting from zero for each person, to not teach the successive generations and keep learning, which can take years, or never happen get the optimal result desired. Or we can instead actively teach about a way of living so that people understand how to live that way. Then that way of living can be created in the aggregate collective society. Learning comes first, then action that changes.




Until such a time that everyone gets taught moral law when they are raised as young ones, rules of conduct need to be established by those who have the moral knowledge to direct the education of a community. This is what humanity has been doing, but getting lost, and taking a long long time to make improvements. But, we are working towards more moral ways of living, although slowly, over centuries, going back and forth on certain things. If we had more of a drive to be moral, a care for moral truth, we could get things changed within a generation.




Anarchy will happen in society, once people learn how to live in an anarchistic way. This can be done through trials and tribulations of each person learning for themselves, or through an effort to learn and educate ourselves and each other, without making all the mistakes over and over and learning the hard way.
