How to Outwit Tyrants

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

There must be thousands of ways to outwit the tyrants in the minds of the Eric Peters Autos readership. This is just a start of some ideas and work arounds to help me endure the ongoing clover supernova that threatens to detonate all individual wealth and the world as we know it.

Never inquire or keep abreast of the time, day, temperature, or any other time wasting irrelevant idiocy. Don’t ask peoples name, occupation, or residency. Avoid all robotically answerable quizzes and assemblies of false order, spend time instead learning what’s real and of note in regards to the world and its inhabitants.

Obliterate in your mind, all expectations of manners, habits, and customs you have been programmed to keep in force. Burp, fart, pick your nose at your pleasure. Defer to noone on a basis of authority or station. Transcend and trample the boxes and pathways of everyday life.

Never act the mundane, but always the rebel, and member of the highest secret elite. Always see the big picture, and fully enjoy with gusto, every tiny little pleasure and exalt in every attention, acknowledement, and brotherhood with any of the so called “little people.”

Never use a menu, endure unwanted sales pitches, visit a gift shop, or be a tourist who stays on the beaten path. Ask for things not on the list. Avoid gladhanders, and gonzo waitresses and cashiers that are overly excited about overpriced nothingness. Get in the know of the special deals and socially engineered gimmicks that make your life easier, cheaper, and more robust against authorities.

Better to own one silver spoon, plate, and install precious metal knobs and handles everywhere. Gold and heavy metals are anti-bacterial and self-cleaning. One person can only use one utensil. Better to own less things of higher quality. Much of over-consuming modernity is false economy. Don’t wear shoes, buy Vibram Fivefingers. Own the minimally needed expensive outfits, everything else as cheap as possible. Never follow any fashions.

Never play national or state lotteries. This only provides additional money for the state. Do gamble with people you know, for both barter and surplus federal reserve notes you no longer need.

Never give to organized churches or charities. These organizations often act to reduce freedom. Do offer to employ or

engage in commerce with those in need, but never in a way that benefits centralized authority or is a part of the system.

Generously buy things or hire people in your community using Craigslist, this transfers your wealth and promotes dignity

and goodwill among those you live among.

Eviscerate false heroes and state achievements. Jesus probably had an identically twin. The first one was crucified, and then the other came out of hiding to take his place. Learn to hate the flag, VFWs, UNICEF, and all the other imbecilic rot. Do maintain childlike wonder by believing in something irrational but harmless. Learn to see leprechauns, get a pet dragon, and make survival plans for the coming planetary colision with Nibiru.

Gate and fence your property. Build privacy walls. Tint your vehicle windows. Bar your doors and windows. Remove public access to your property. Give access to a caretaker and a chosen few. Buy those with access a weapon and pay for them to protect you and your family. Your excess land is their land. Your life is important to their life.

Forward your mail. Obscure your street address. Disappear your internet and credit history footprint. Form a Montana LLC and put hide all your assets behind corporate veils. Only drive a company car, and use a company credit card. Pay in barter or cash wherever possible.

Always file paper forms. Where possible, comply with tax and other regulations in order to maximize the inconvenience of

crony capitalist processors, tax collectors, and other officials.

Never watch TV news, or read the mainstream press. Never watch the weather, sports, crime, or financial news. Actively

seek information using your own initiative, never passively submit to processed, propagandized recitations of any kind.

Don’t attend mainstream churches or uncritically read Torah, bibles, or the Koran. Avoid all popular social themes, new

words, public service memes, and distracting minutae at all times.

Skip commericals and ignore advertising. Most advertising is paid for by companies with an oligopoly. Also learn to

recognize the scripted words and plotlines in media. “Winston” Smith, Ayn Rand’s dollar sign cigarettes, car chases, guns

battles, drinking, lavish homes, expensive clothes, and big city locations. Every novel, movie, song, receives money for

showing products and services in an unreal favorable light. Don’t be a naive consumer, but a wisened owl, acutely aware of

nothing being done for free.

Always work to minimize monopoly or oligopoly products and services. The plain truth is, we have no way of knowing what

we are getting or who we are dealing with. Anyone with undue absolute power is insrutable, and there is little to nothing we

can do to figure out who they really are, what they are really up to, and what they are really selling us.

Be uncivilly obedient. Always show maximum male chauvinism, racism, ageism, and lack of tolerance for everyone

whenever forced to transact with the oligopoly government, utilities, insurance, and other cartels of fascist domination. Be

liberal with accusations, backstabbings, conspiracies, and doomsday warnings. Show them what a farce their “great

society” really is, except in your own community and circle of friends and voluntary business partners. Be ultrademanding

and belittle and criticize their every action or utterance, making sure they suffer your utter contempt and full blame for their

part in the destruction of your freedom of choice and of free association.

If you need to visit a bank or something, do use brutally honest nicknames for your overlord serf. Make sure they know

they’re ugly, overweight, stupid, old, poor, non-aryan, gay, smelly, or otherwise unpleasant and a burden for you to have to

interact with. Balance this out by going overboard

Abandon the English language. English is a dead language, much like praetorian Latin has become. Learn French,

Portuguese, Spanish, or develop an alternate communication method with more freedom minded influences than servile,

borg-talk English.

Remember the loss of the few japanese men who know how to make zippers would be a worldwide tragedy, but the simultaneous loss of every politician and bureaucrat in the world by a flash-plague would be no loss whatsoever.

Never volunteer. Don’t answer personal questions, give your real name, or help the collective, even in the smallest civil

thing. Be aloof, and don’t engage with others, unless you are in non-oligopoly, non-collective safe territory of your own

choosing, where you know freedom and the right to be left alone still prevails.

Incite non-compliance. Reward violators of the norm. Encourage freethought and skepticism. Encourage production, entrepreneurship, art, science, and excellence of every kind. Be a joy to your kindred spirits and a bane to your enemy captors.


  1. To outwit the ancient tyrants, I heartily advocate you first adopt this motto: “That government is best which governs least.” I would love to see you put it into practice systematically, and the sooner the better.

    The more you live by this motto, the more you will arrive at this final, second motto: “That government is best which governs not at all.”

    The internet has created a fledging interverse. A new type of social cooperation where men like you are more than ready to beginning living a fuller, more authentic life, by following the first motto.

    As you mature and wean yourself from the forced relations of both state and duty, you will one day make yourself ready to live by the second motto. That will become the kind of government which you have.

    Government ingratiates itself as being an inevitable expedient. The reality is most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, grossly inexpedient.

    The objections against maintaining a standing army at all times, are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail. When this army continues to enlarge and impoverish us all, it at last becomes necessary to object to the maintaining of the standing government in its entirety.

    The standing army is only an arm of the standing government. The government itself, which conspires to be the only mode by which the people are able to execute their collective will, becomes the opposite of what is sought. A body that denies the people the means to execute both their individual and their collective will.

    The machinery of government is in fact only a mechanism to enslave, abuse, and pervert the lives of the people, it neve allows them to beneficially act through it. Always a government is a diabolical work of a tiny minority of individuals who use the standing government as their tool. A tool which the people never consented to being brought into existence.

    What is the American government but a tradition of a viral political invasion, one which endeavours to transmit itself unimpaired to posterity, each instant losing some of its integrity, each action, impairing and bringing ruin to its hosts, the people?

    The government has not the vitality and force of a single living man; for a single man can bend it to his will. It is a sort of wooden gun aimed at the people themselves. Through sly tricks, it manages to seem necessary and legitimate to the people. The people demand the comfort of its complicated machinery and the sound and fury of its din. It satisfies their idea of what government they should have.

    Governments show thus how successfully men can be imposed on, even impose on themselves, for their own advantage. It is terrifyingly excellent, I do admit. Still, this government never furthers any undertaking or enterprise, unless it quickly and completely gets out of the way.

    It does not keep the country free. It does not bring civilization and prosperity. It does not educate. The character inherent in the American people is what has accomplished all the common riches which we enjoy today. We would have quite a bit more, if the government had not so often, got in its way of the people.

    Government is an expedient which seems most successful when it best succeeds in letting its citizens alone. I propose, not to demand no government all at once, but rather a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward us all obtaining it.

    The practical reason why, when the power is put in the hands of the people, a majority are permitted, and for a long period continue, to rule, is not because they are most likely to be in the right, nor because this seems fairest to the minority, but because they are physically the strongest.

    A government which rules by the majority in all cases cannot be based on justice. Can there not be a government in which majorities do not virtually decide right and wrong, but leave it to the individual’s conscience?

    Can there not be a government in which majorities decide only those questions to which the rule of expediency is applicable?

    Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? What then, is the reason every man is in possession of a conscience? I think that we should be men first, and subjects of the government afterward.

    It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as to cultivate a respect for what is right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right. It is truly enough said that a corporation has no conscience; but a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation with a conscience.

    Law never makes men more just. By means of one’s being forced at gunpoint to respect the arbitrary majority laws; even the well-disposed and naturally right actors are daily made into agents of injustice. A common and natural result of an undue respect for law is, that you may see a file of soldiers, colonel, captain, corporal, privates, weapons tenders and all, marching in admirable order over both hill and dale to wars, against their wills, against their common sense, and against their consciences.

    This makes for very steep marching indeed, and produces a palpitation and malaise within the heart. The soldiers have no doubt that it is a damnable business in which they are concerned; they are all peaceably inclined. Now, what have they become? Are they even Men at all, or merely small movable forts and magazines, at the service of some unscrupulous man in power?

    Visit the Navy Yard, and behold a marine. Such a mockery of a man as an American government can make. Or such as it can make a man with its black arts. A mere shadow and reminiscence of humanity, a man laid out alive and standing, and already, as one may say, buried under arms with funeral accompaniments, though it may be

    “Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,
    As his course to the rampart we hurried;
    Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot
    Over the grave where our hero we buried.”

    The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines, with their bodies. They are the standing army, and the militia, jailers, constables, posse comitatus, etc. In most cases there is no free exercise whatever of the judgment or of the moral sense.

    Men put themselves on a level with wood and earth and stones. Joined by civilian wooden men who can be manufactured at will to serve the foul purposes of the state as well. Such men command no more respect than men of straw or a lump of dirt. They have the barely the worth of horses and dogs.

    Yet such as these mass men are commonly esteemed to be good citizens, heroes, and the best of our nation. Others, as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders, serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they more likely than not serve to destroy, rather than to build, often with no conscious intention of doing so.

    A small number of heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and just men, do manage to serve the state with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part. Incredibly, these sorts of men are commonly treated as enemies of the state, and greatly maligned and brought to ruin. A wise man will only be useful as a man, and will not submit to be “clay,” nor to be used to “stop a hole to keep the storm and wind away”, but to leave that office to its destiny of destruction and return into dust and waste, which is all it ever was.

    “I am too high-born to be propertied,
    Or to be a secondary under control,
    To be a useful serving-man and instrument
    Of any sovereign state throughout the world.”

  2. Killed By A Tiger. – Katt Williams

    it seems libertarians are like tigers. soon no longer free to live in the wild, but only in the sanctuaries and zoos of the state.

    can we learn from the 250,000 amish mennonites who live outside of the social security and medicare system, why can’t we also take care of our own? at least we can always work as a 1099 employee.

    dont buy insurance. especially life insurance. these are the people stealing your freedom for profit.

    dont keep your money in banks. move your money to a credit union. better still, move your money to a vault. keep your savings off the grid if possible.

    dont use hospitals. have your children using alternate off grid caregivers. dont report their birth, its none of their business.

    dont spend money on funerals. donate your body to science. get some kind of alternate memorial. have your body buried on an indian reservation or in the wild. dont help them record your death, which is none of their business

    move to a high freedom state. move to an area with an active secessionist movement.

    move next to the amish or an indian reservation. transact with groups outside the u.s. system. transact with militias. transact with even transact with gang members. transact with outlaw motorcyclists. your enemy’s enemy is your friend if you keep your transactions peaceful.

    buy food directly from farmers, trappers, hunters. form a coop with your neighbors. collectively own a commercial freezer, 75 pound washer. commercial dryer. form a common plantation, with a club house. build your own homeschooling learning center. cooperate to homeschool your children.

    file your taxes, but don’t send any payment. those go to a different address. call them and set up a payment plan. get the lowest payment possible. string them along, so all they have are ious, for as long as you can.

    dont buy stuff through catalogs, the mail, fm radio, or the television. never visit a mall, or shop their, unless its “cool”. avoid patronizing any kind of sterilized vice free zones. buy where there are gun stores, liquor stores, bars, casinos, street people, and other free trade areas.

    make a list of libertarian owned businesses, and patronize them.

    if all else fails, pretend to embrace living in the modern zoo. but never reveal your true self to these zookeepers and zoosheeple. freedom may yet continue online, over the phone lines, in media and art, and within video games. keep telling yourself it could be worse, but also keep an eye peeled for a chance to escape and truly be free.
