Freedom Outlaws Handbook 5-8


Chapter One:  SOME THINGS YOU CAN QUIT WASTING YOUR TIME ON

5. SURRENDER THE IDEA OF YOUR OWN INCOMPETENCE
One of the saddest lessons we often learn in government school (or from our families) is that we're incompetent.  While homeschooled, unschooled, private-schooled, or particularly motivated and well-encouraged kids build their own cabins or bicycles, write books, found organizations, and lead orienteering expeditions, millions of others learn to sit, listen, do meaningless makework projects, and to work not for real-wold accomplishment goals, but merely for grades (of what real value is a grade?) and to pass tests.

Chapter One  SOME THINGS YOU CAN QUIT WASTING YOUR TIME ON

When you're serious enough about your freedom to join the Grand Outlaw Cabal, there's a lot you need to do, a lot to risk. But--ain't it grand? -- there's also a lot of useless mind wrecking, time-sucking stuff you can quit doing.

You can give up political tactics that don't yield useful results.  You can free you mind from passive "good citizen" habits.  You can quit obeying every little rule that encroaches upon your liberties.  You can quit respecting those who haven't earned your respect.  You can quit "complying," "cooperating," and collaborating with pushy, freedom-grabbing authorities.

That should be a vast relief, right?
