Pirates Without Borders Will Use Technology To Obtain Freedom From Authoritarian Governments – Issue First Letter From Captain Marque
Up until now, Libertarians and those who seek Freedom from the Authoritarian States of the World have concentrated on building communities in cyberspace. But a new trend is emerging. Those trying to escape the financial and political slavery of the corrupt governments have started to migrate to real spaces. On land, cities and gatherings spring from unused property, like the flowering of Slab City. Events like Burning Man and freedom raves take place in the deserts. This trend has now taken a serious turn of events, with groups like Sea Steading creating ocean communities that are free from any governmental controls, and are planning to set up thousands of free-trade zones on the world’s oceans.
The most far sighted and far out groups, like Pirates Without Borders, aims to go into space, using present technology to launch huge ships that contain entire communities. They plan to live free, off-planet and possibly on the moon or Mars. These groups are forming now, the next step to escape the crumbling mess that the Elites have made. The never-ending wars have devastated entire countries, launching millions of homeless refugees who are trying to escape the violence that is put on them by the insane elites who are playing real war games here on earth. The trillions of dollars and the immense amount of wealth that is being poured into destructive operations instead of putting the resources to work to solve humanity’s problems of food, health, and shelter, has shown that the world’s rulers are mentally insane power-hungry madmen who will not rest until the entire planet is in absolute ruins.
Writers of science fiction have long explored this topic, which has now reached the edge of reality in many cases. A recent graphic novel, Red Eden, even explored the topic of Native Americans leveraging their gambling empires to buy the technology for a mass migration to the planet Mars where they set up their own version of paradise. This line of thought seems to be gaining a lot of credence, and the technological breakthroughs of the last 50 years are making this all possible. Folks can now buy a “printing press” and in their own home “print” the parts they need to make anything. This technology has come so far that the Chinese are “printing” houses, ten a day from one machine. How long before the Pirates begin to “print” hundreds of space ships every day? The possibilities are only limited by what imagination can conceive.
Here below is The First Letter From Captain Marque, from www.PiratesWithoutBorders.com. This is an interesting statement of principles from the Techno-Freedom front.
First Letter of Captain Marque
Humanity’s long pursuit of freedom is full of desperate complaints against the Crown. Rulers and subjects alike have penned countless flowery documents claiming to limit the Crown’s hostility with signed agreements. But today any observer can see that all these poetic social contracts have been impotent to prevent the Crown’s predation, or worse, they have authorized it. Those they propped up as our liberators are now subsisting on our bondage. Limited government is a lie they cultivated to keep us submissive.
Stripped of its grandiose rhetoric, the essence of the Crown has always been rule by force. Every euphemism has only enshrined the violence inherent in the system, embodied not only by the enforcers, but in every courthouse, school and post office. Everywhere the Crown tells you, “Obey, or else.” Well, I’ve had enough of centralized force.
I am no revolutionary. I have no desire to reform your system, or run it my way. If you want your servile life, keep it. But know that the Crown can never be trusted to abide by its founding charters, nor to keep its treaties, nor even to play by its own rules. Put simply, the Crown cannot be trusted. That’s why I raised my black banner, why I’m opting out.
The folly of revolutions is that they only reset the cycle of violence. My aim is to break that cycle, and abandon the madness of expecting different results. My aim is an evolved society of individuals, invisible to the Crown. And, evolution requires viable mutation, not a new hierarchy, but new modes of horizontal innovation.
Liberation requires collaboration between free thinkers without infringement or censorship. In another age, we could meet in public spaces. Today, avoiding the Crown’s surveillance requires we exchange encrypted communication.
Energy independence turns the gears of the visionary’s imagination, and grants us individual control of our modern lives. No meaningful alternative to the Crown’s system can be achieved without exploring decentralized energy production and storage to create heat, power and incredible new tools.
Flourishing in our new autonomy requires that we construct secure habitats in which to dwell. Cutting edge materials and methods provide unimaginable new options, allowing us greater mobility, and access to many previously uninhabitable environments.
The privateers of the Crown have turned our food and water into subtle poisons, making us vulnerable in mind and body. Therefore it is essential to cultivate our own heirloom nutrition and healthful water to repair and improve our bodies.
The Crown has conspired with the medical industry to ensnare us in a web of control and dependency.
To avoid their notions and potions it is essential to take responsibility for our own health, and pursue sound medical science.
The Crown has claimed regulatory control of every means of conveyance, stifling the free travel of individuals and their property. This is an intolerable act. Superior transportation technologies already exist, but are suppressed by regulations.
Humanity’s labor has been greatly expanded by the use of machines. We must maintain decentralized automation for the future use of labor saving and humanity serving tools, or we will be victims of the Crown’s automatons.
Living in the information age has not insulated us from misinformation. When the Crown controls education it controls the very lens through which we see the world. Above all, we must teach truth to our young, to let them see the world as it is.
Obviously this is not an exhaustive list of all the tools at our disposal. The truths of the natural world work just as well for us as for any others. The road ahead requires vast and decentralized efforts and experimentation by diverse and disconnected parties. The strength of a network is not in it’s unity but in it’s decentralization, leaving no one point of failure, no centralized figure, no critical junction for the Crown to target.
So, bow down to your finely-dressed abusers, if you wish. Let them pat your heads as they slip their hands in your pockets. We won’t force you to live our way, but we will not submit to living your way. We are not your property. And, when you are ready to stop being their beast of burden, ready for adventure and opportunity, come join us on the high seas. We will not be hard to find.
