Right War, Wrong Battlefield

Kyle Bennett at Fr33 Agents - a good description of the agorist way of changing the system. Stop fighting it and participating in it. Build an alternative society, and wait for the dinosaur to die and fall over.

I'm often asked something along the lines of the following: "If you're not voting to buck the system, what exactly can you do to change the system in an equal or more effective way."


I'm not interested in changing the system.

It is futile. The country has the system wanted by the majority of voters, and I don't have the skills to change that many people's minds. Few people do, and an individualist, market and freedom-oriented mindset is incompatible with that ability. The system operates collectively, only collective action within it can be effective, but a message of individual freedom cannot be effectively forwarded by collective means.
