The industry of prohibition
Lots of things on this world are formally banned by governments. But most detrimental for longterm sustainability and well-being of life are the bans of truth and choice.
These two may never be formally banned for obvious reasons, but that does not mean they will not be effectively banned if there is interest in it.
One might think that formal bans, which are usually also effective, limit one's freedom, but non-formal effective bans, those one might not recognize as such, are much more limiting in reality.
On this world, truth and choice is often effectively banned.
Root cause of these bans lies in for-profit organizations (industry, banks, ..) and organizations sponsored by these.
There are a lot of examples of effective bans, but here I will single out some I consider important at this time.
On this world, people selling truth about the world, when not marginalized, are stand-up comedians, while manifestations of jokes taken seriously rule that world. This should start changing very soon if this world is to become healthy, otherwise it will have to regenerate.
Weapons made for war will never make peace. As long as there are weapons made for war there will be no peace.
As long as there are peace sellers and fools buying there will be war. Globally, thus, peace is effectively banned.
Electric vehicles were never formally banned. But ever since the start of mass production of gasoline cars, the industry kept telling us that electric cars cannot compete with
cars running on fossil fuel, effectively training us for fossil fuel addiction.
Yes, theoretically, everyone of us could've made their electric car at home, but who actually had the time, skill (or time to get skilled) and money to invest into production and optimization of an
electric car which could compete with a gasoline car?
With no electric cars being sold by industry, electric cars were effectively banned. It was the same as if they were formally banned - the effect was the same.
As industry gets bigger it gets easier for it to keep bans effective. No industry is willing to change (it is generally expensive), only if someone (usually, someone with a lot of
money) manages to reduce the ban effect, they might start changing, slowly, starting with precursors of change - projecting an image of it, rather than real change.
We now know, not only that electric cars make sense, but they are, in a lot of ways, better than cars running on fossil fuel.
However, although the effect is much lower, the ban is still effective - electric cars are more expensive and charging infrastructure is not as developed.
Perhaps if subsidies to fossil fuel industry would be lower that would not be the case.
But you don't get to choose who gets subsidized and who doesn't - your democracy is only formal, not effective.
Industry has the effective choice, because it sponsors political parties.
Analogous to the ban of electric vehicles by vehicle industry, plant-based diet is banned by meat industry, using the same methodology.
First, lies are spread - you cannot live without meat, plants don't have proteins, etc.
We now effectively know that these are myths. Not only that you can live without meat, for most of you, plant-based diet is the only way to stay healthy - feeding yourself instead the industry.
But how many of us have the skill and time (or will to spend time) to grow and prepare vegan food at home?
Until fast-food restaurants start offering tasty vegan burgers and until your local supermarket offers you a vegan lunch, plant-based diet is banned.
Existing agri-culture is based on effective terrorism and anthropoexcentric genucide - large scale destruction of wildlife species and habitats, replacement of healthy diverse cultures with
mono-cultures and domestic life effectively engineered and optimized for profits, not sustainability.
The truth is you do not need domestic animals to survive. But you do need wild life for survival - that is an irrefutable fact. If you do not understand that now, soon or sooner, you will.
Free speech may not be banned formally and may even be formally allowed, but it is often banned in reality.
In the past, metal music was effectively banned because it often talked against politics and church - it was even, ironically, labeled as satanic (it's like calling Jesus a satan).
Even today, it is still often unwanted and unequally covered by media compared to other genres.
Anarchy may not be banned by industry, or not by industry alone, but it is certainly banned by those with primal interest in slavery - world governments.
As always, first, the lies are spread - anarchy is chaos and insecurity, etc.
Anarchy does not imply chaos and insecurity, it is a state of society equal to a sustainable state of natural communities. It might descend into chaos and insecurity - but that chaos and insecurity is
always introduced by the proponents and propagators of the alternative system - slavery, for one purpose - to deceive the society and advertise the system of government (slavery) as having no
As one will find out, soon or sooner, nothing is more sustainable than anarchy.
Only effective choice is choice. Only effective truth is truth.
Here are some of these truths documented in movies.
A Bold Peace (2016)
Documentary on maintenance of peace and happiness in Costa Rica (a country where army was disbanded over 70 years ago) despite the pressures from a major global peace seller.
A more recent version of Earthlings, documenting abuse of animals in agriculture.
What anarchy is, is well summed up on Wikipedia
Anarchy is the state of a society being freely constituted without authorities or a governing body. It may also refer to a society or group of people that entirely rejects a set hierarchy. Anarchy
first used in 1539, meaning "an absence of government". Pierre-Joseph Proudhon adopted anarchy
in his 1840 treatise "What is property?" to
refer to anarchism, a new political philosophy and social movement which advocates stateless societies based on free and voluntary associations.
Anarchists seek a system based on the abolishment of all unjustified, coercitive hierarchy and the creation of system of direct democracy and worker cooperatives.
Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret (2014)
On proper path to sustainability.
Classification of animals as beings inferior to humans, with no complex feelings and thoughts, all based on their extroverted nature, is absurd. But it has enabled the treatment of animals
to be equal to treatment of non-living resources, which is always convenient for an industry optimized for short-term profit, not for long-term survival and well-being of individuals.
Feelings and thoughts belong to introverted nature of intelligence and will not get expressed externally in, dominantly, introverted species.
You.. are an animal.
The anthropocentric humanity - effective human stupidity, soon, or sooner, will be banned, in a natural reaction of the biosphere. This superiority of man is an artificial balloon, and, as all
balloons, it can either explode or deflate gracefully. Yet, inflation still rules this world.
Elephants and some species of whales are likely to have introverted intelligence generally higher than total intelligence of a typical human individual. Therefor, they perceive extroverted reality
to be as blurry as typical human dreams are, where one is unable to fully express its intelligence.
You.. are as stupid to some as much as you consider yourself intelligent to some.
The sustainability of profits is ahead of the sustainability of life, stupid.
What the Health (2017)
Uncovers the collusion between industry, government, pharmaceutical and health organizations.
A man healthy for the planet is a healthy man. Keeping a man sick will always be, not only in the interest of pharmacy and related industries, but in the interest of industry effectively relying
on the destruction of the planet for its profits.
Truth about plastic in the ocean, sustainability of fishing and the criminal involved.
If one wants to quickly end life on a planet, one starts in the ocean.
A quest for better society and its hurdles.
Author of this movie has been known to make fake documentaries - presenting fiction as fact. This movie, however, is labeled as a sci-fi fantasy, but, ironically, contains much more truth than
The Monopoly on Violence (2020)
A well summed up truth about states and anarchy.
Accidental Anarchist (2017)
The story of a former government diplomat who became an anarchist. Reveals some of the bad sides of government and shows anarchy in practice documenting its advantages over representative democracy and other systems.
