The Individual, his freedom and victory

The Individual, his freedom and victory

by Jon Rappoport

The State, as now constituted, pretends it favors giving away the farm for nothing “to those in need.” What they really mean is: they steal the farm, and then they give a few pieces away on their terms.

There are people who don’t understand what a FREE INDIVIDUAL is. They want a world of Central Planning. They feel a welter of emotions, all negative, when they contemplate THE FREE INDIVIDUAL.

For the free individual, “the highest work possible” doesn’t involve leaving one’s desires behind, in order to become the abject servant of a Cause. He doesn’t suddenly develop an egoless and empty personality in order to “connect” with a goal that floats in an abstract realm.

The free individual isn’t shaped. He shapes.

He doesn’t fall on his knees and grovel to seek public acceptance.

The mob, the herd operates on debt, obligation, guilt, and the pretense of admiration for idols. These are its currencies.

The herd, seeking some reflection of its unformed desire, constructs a social order based on need—and the substance of that need will be extracted through coercion, if necessary, from those who already have More.

This need, and the proposition that the mob deserves its satisfaction, creates a worldwide industry.

Among the industry’s most passionate and venal supporters are those who are quite certain that the human being is a tainted vile creature. Such supporters, of course, are sensing their own reflections.

The great psychological factor in any life is THE DESERTION OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM. Afterward, the individual creates shadows and monsters and fears around that crossroad.

Freedom is the space and the setting, from which the individual can generate the thought and the energy-pulse of a great self-chosen objective.

In that place, there is no crowding or oppressive necessity. There is choice. There is desire. There is thought.

“Being absorbed in a greater whole” isn’t an ambition or philosophical prospect for the free individual. He sees that fixation as a surrender of self.

The Collective, whether envisioned as a down-to-earth or mystical group, promises a release from self. This grand solution to problems is a ruse designed to keep humans in a corral, a prison. After all, how are you going to control and eventually enslave people if you promote the notion that each individual has freedom and free choice? The abnegation of self is a workable tactic, as long as it is dressed up with false idols and perverted ideals.

Self is fundamentally creative, dynamic, forward-looking, energetic, powerful, engaged. The Collective looks for shadows of those qualities in the government as its source of survival.

The free individual certainly helps others, but he is against a culture that is so preoccupied with “raising up the lowest” that it nurtures a hatred of liberty. And this is a crux, because growing millions of people are all too eager to shed the last fragments of Self to join in a fantasy of “everybody gets everything.”

The fantasy doesn’t work. The melting down of all of humanity into a mystical goo is an illusion that can’t stand the test of time. Eventually, a person falls out of that construct and remembers he must depend, to an alarming degree, on his own inner resources.

The free individual doesn’t act in ways that limit the freedom of others.

Self-sufficiency is both an essence and outcome for the free individual.

The free individual discovers his way through imagination and creative power, because that is the answer to the question: what is freedom for?

Without exercising imagination and creative power, freedom withers and dies. It becomes an empty slogan. It becomes an empty stage.

We are told, in a thousand ways, that the free individual is the personification of greed and theft and crime. That is false.

The free individual imagines and creates on a scale that supersedes and ignores the Collective. His work naturally spills over and benefits others.

Advocates of the Collective falsely claim the free individual is cold and uncaring and remote and “without humanity.” Meanwhile, their picture of a society based on need is a poisonous affectation; it is constructed because these advocates are walled off from their own power. Therefore, they substitute endless entitlement.

Their only nod of acknowledgment to the individual has been to propagandize him as an outsider, a potential danger, a lurking menace, a person waiting to be diagnosed with a mental disorder.

These days, it is the Group that is elevated. We must absorb the individual in the system so the Group is protected and safe.

Even accepting Mill’s specious pronouncement that society should be organized on the basis of the greatest good for greatest number, the questions remains: what is the greatest good? Is it that which makes us, more and more, into a Group? Or is it that which liberates the individual to pursue his highest aspirations?

The greatest good liberates the individual, and then the door is open. Who will walk through it? Every person who has divested himself of the collective mindset.

The titanic myths that have been foisted on humanity and the titanic acceptance of those myths by humanity are all focused on one lie: the individual cannot stand on his own; he must subjugate himself to a system.

I don’t care what form that higher system takes. It’s a lie. It’s all geared to promoting slavery. It’s all geared to allowing the few to control the many.

And the few WILL control the many, until the day comes when enough individuals throw off ALL the deceptions that permitted them to think The Individual was less than he is.

The day will dawn when the individual knows he is greater than any and all groups and collectives by any name flying under any flag, espousing any gibberish, elevating any fairy tale, seducing with any promise, hypnotizing with any idol or misbegotten legend.

That day will dawn.

But why wait?

Why not act now?

Why not launch your greatest dream?

    Yes, who decides the value system.

    It appears to me that all the “solutions” offered whether psychological or “spiritual” are in fact methods of self abandonment.
    This only propels and feeds momentum into a vicious cycle which exacerbates the original problem. The original problem is usually only a problem because it is defined as a problem by the powers that be.

    To say it’s a lie that the individual cannot stand on his own has wide-reaching implications. I am very glad that I do not stand strictly on my own: it means I can enjoy owning a car and being able to have fuel for it and new tires as needed and roads to drive on, and I can enjoy a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables grown by other people during my wintertime. Where I live I doubt if many people would survive one year of trying to “stand on their own”. The reality is that, however much it may annoy some egos, how we live today is conditional on a vast complex of interdependent relationships—and that these are indeed the basis of a potential personal freedom such as no previous generation has known. Unfortunately we allow the bulk of the benefits to be stolen and redirected against our interests by an unsound financial system.

      You are right Robert, but most of those people need to be wiped out lol. The world now moves so fast that you must work together, and that is the problem. This also makes sure there are less people purchasing land that can allow them some freedom. Productivity up,individualism down.
      Fast paced and network based work environments destroy real community and leave a false community in it’s place. You will see this false community on news segments where everyone cares about each other, soldiers, police, and firefighters are hero’s. I don’t know about you, but I never really heard of someone who became a real hero because they have a hero career slot.
      Robert, I live in a small rural area now. What I have seen shocked me. Rural areas are truly communist and there is very little freedom of speech. The only way to keep a business running in areas like this is if you joined the right organization or church group or who have relatives that have. Many poor people are available as rent-a-mobs and are used to discredit and damage the reputation and belongings of people who are well meaning, but outside the collective. Much jealousy, entitlement, prostitution, and generational abuse has festered in these areas long enough. It is time people come clean about the truth of small town or rural life. The TV is not going to give you a good perspective about interconnected rural living.

    I’d like to see a reference cited for “Mill’s” in light of the following:

    “The sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively, in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection. That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because, in the opinion of others, to do so would be wise, or even right…The only part of the conduct of anyone, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns him, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.”:

    Anybody have some troll poisoning pellets?
    I accidentally left mine at my other castle with my asbestos undies.
