Anarchy and the human spirit

All my life whenever the word Anarchy or Anarchist was brought up in conversation or song lyrics I was always lead to believe that it was a horrible thing and led so far as to believe that it could be construed as treason. As I have grown older and become more and more aware of the world and life in general I will be the first to say that this is simply not the truth.

Merriam Webster.com defines Anarchy as follows:

Main Entry: an·ar·chy  
Pronunciation: \ˈa-nər-kē, -ˌnär-\
Function: noun
Etymology: Medieval Latin anarchia, from Greek, from anarchos having no ruler, from an- + archos ruler
Date: 1539
1 a : absence of government b : a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority c : a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government
2 a : absence or denial of any authority or established order b : absence of order : 


Now, by this definition and following with the Greek root from which it was attained there is no reason for me to any longer deny what I truly am for fear of being a traitor...I am an Anarchist, and I think if more people were aware of the true meaning and root of the word they would begin to see that Democracy was probably established by our founding fathers with a dash of Anarchy intended. They understood that we are not meant to be ruled, that is why we broke from England and the persecution of our religious freedoms, that is why we fought a war to become independent from the ruler(s) that told us what we could and could not do...is any of this making sense to anyone yet? Are you picking up what I am putting down?

I believe in the human spirit, the ability of people to form intelligent thought and to have an instinctual ability to discern of right from wrong. We are human and we all make mistakes but we are intelligent beings and hopefully we all learn from whatever mistakes we make but when the corruption of power, greed and capitalism leads a once great nation, my nation of America, to the point where I cannot pursue happiness, which is not meant to be interpreted by anyone other than me, you are damn right I am an Anarchist.

I am fully in protest of the lies, greed, deceit, and corruption that has come to be known as the US Government. The corruption runs from the lowliest of city and township elected officials all the way up to the guy that occupies the big white house in D.C.

Who is my ruler?,  not Barack Obama, not the farce that has come to be known as Congress or Senate, and certainly not the ridiculous laws that these corrupt men tell me I have to follow. No one owns me or will ever tell me what to do again...I chose Anarchy, I chose the human spirit, and I chose freedom.

I believe the Constitution of this great land that was written by our forefathers was intended for us to govern ourselves through faith in the human spirit, not what we live in today, not to be governed by the upper one percent and told what we must or must not do. I say no longer is this acceptable.

When men and women who are the police for these corrupt ideals begin to think that they can do whatever they want( see my video on the "Jeremy Fink...Unfiltered" Facebook page of the police officer punching a 17 year old girl in the face) and have the backing of their municipalities afterwards, when there is upwards of 70 million gallons of oil floating around in our ocean killing every living thing in its path and disrupting a ecosystem that gives us all life, when a government tells me that it is ok to spend 15 billion dollars a year to persecute and imprison people who choose to use a substance which is substantially safer than alcohol or tobacco,( yes, I am speaking of cannabis)  You are goddamn right I am an Anarchist...I have faith in what I know to be right, I have faith in the Constitution as it was intended and I have faith in the human spirit...


Until shit changes drastically this is what I have to say to the Government on all levels and all aspects...
