  • The more I read about the concept of anarchy the more I am attracted to its tenants of voluntarism and non-aggression. That being said, some people are just dicks, and the heavy hand of the state can be very useful in dealing with such individuals. Let’s say a new neighbour moves next door. He buys the property outright and is free to do with it (and on it) as he chooses. Let’s say he chooses to play his music ridiculously loudly at all hours of the night. His music is keeping my kids up and proving to be a nuisance all around. I’ve tried reasoning with him but nothing will dissuade him from blaring his music as loudly as he wants on his property. Currently, I can call the cops and the problem will be solved (one way or another). What recourse would I have against this “noise pollution” in an anarchic society?

  • Vince Poscente wrote a book, “The Ant and the Elephant,” a parable with the ant representing the conscious mind, and the elephant representing the unconscious mind. The obvious implication and preponderance of evidence is that the unconscious mind is in control, and the ant (conscious mind) takes us wherever the elephant (the unconscious mind) wants to go. I, personally, see myself doing behaviors that I would consciously prefer I not do. I work on programming the unconscious mind. I also look toward the behaviors of animals for clues to my own and other people’s behavior. For instance, I walk 2 dogs. One dog is big, pulls me along where HE wants to go. (He needs better training, I know.) But, in the end, he is the most loving animal Soul I know. He is, true to his nature, a male dog, marking his territory. At the same time, I know he adores me and would stand between me and any danger. The other dog is a small, but dominate female. She is a biter, so I handle with care. She appears to see the world as a hostile environment, and will take on any dog that threatens her dominance, no matter the size. I see counterparts of both animals in human behavior. What do you think, is the ant or the elephant in charge? Do people, like animals have different personality makeups that make them either peaceful lovers or competitive dominators? Whatever our nature, how do we learn to all get along together?
