I found this video (below) on Richard Nikoley’s blog. It is an absolute must watch. It is a must watch because if you care about your life, and your freedom, it will be an eye opener like no other.
Not unlike I said here, that philanthropy will not solve obesity, education will not solve human slavery. I believe there are a number of inter-related reasons for this, that fit together, and all point to the same conclusion.
The bottom line is that education will never solve the problem of slavery. Stefan does a fantastic job of explaining this.
What’s more, I’ve known this for a while. And it became especially apparent at The 21 Convention this year during my Declarationism presentation, specifically during the question and answer session.
It became apparent to me that there was a fundamental, basic premise “road block” between what I was communicating, and how it was being processed by the audience. Including the most intelligent men in the room, men like Doug McGuff (you’ll hear him in the video when it’s posted).
I did not understand what exactly that road block was, or how to solve it, but I knew it was there, and that it had something to do with people’s obsession with educating other people. That much was obvious.
Thanks to Stefan, I now have what may be the most powerful metaphor I will ever encounter for Declarationism.
That metaphor is this : it’s raining outside, with no end in sight. Ignoring the rain doesn’t make it stop. Placing an umbrella over your head, doesn’t make it stop.
Even going inside and taking shelter, doesn’t make it stop.
Declarationism stops the rain, dead in it’s tracks. This is of paramount importance because the problem is not how you feel about the rain, what your opinion of the rain is, how the rain affects you, or what should be done about the rain as it relates to you, and other people.
Declarationism addresses the root problem : that it’s raining. It ends the rain, independent of anything and everything else in existence. No one has a say in the matter.
What this means is exactly what it sounds like : that the day is not coming when so many people are educated and agree on economics, morality, etc, that slavery ends. This is a pipe dream with no connection to reality.
You have to dig a lot deeper.
This does not mean education is useless. It simply means it is not a solution to the problem of people enslaving each other with violence.
