Why I’m Leaving America

whyimleavingamerica

[Editor's Note: The following post is by Michael Fielding and originally appeared on his blog, Sailboat Diaries, and can be read here.] 

Goodbye, America.

For as long as I’ve lived you’ve been my only home. I’ve had a wonderful life here. Your inhabitants are almost universally kind, and I’ve become lifelong friends with many of your citizens. All of my family lives here, everyone I have ever known or loved, and I will miss them all a lot. But after 22 years, I feel impelled to leave.

According to your founders, “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one [person] to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” Well, I certainly wouldn’t want to be disrespectful.

At first glance, you look like the greatest of all social systems.


Voluntaryist Infographic

Infographics are great visuals and can be full of all sorts of facts and information. We felt that a Voluntaryism infographic would be a fun and informative way to share the history and ideas behind the movement.

5 Common Fallacious Critiques of Voluntaryism [VIDEO]

From The Voluntaryists:

In this video, the narrator walks through five fallacies of Voluntaryism that often get discussed when speaking about being a Voluntaryist.

The video is not very long, but long enough to provide excellent examples for each statement. We hope you’ll watch and join in the discussion.

1. Voluntaryism is trying to create a Utopia which could never exist. [0:10]

2. Voluntaryism cannot work because people are evil. [1:19]

3. Voluntaryism permits alternative justice like courts, so it is no different than government. [2:23]

4. Voluntaryism would allow big business to control everything. [3:35]

5. Voluntaryism would lead to total anarchy, and anarchy is total chaos. [4:30]

We will be posting this to our Voluntaryism resources page as well for people to watch when they are feeling Voluntaryist curious.
