In clearnet the subject of how to resist the matrix is very little explored. When the little I saw in some personal blogs and / or finances approached the matrix were talking about the marriage strike (has its value) and also the financial independence itself, but stop there, without analyzing more deeply what the matrix, What its concept and its implications on our way of living, and we do not even know the ideological position of the people who write because many times they are not clear and are still full of contradictions. Lately I’ve been thinking about this a bit and after reading some of them I finally try to write this here to try to free my soul and yours.
In the world of finance, most bloggers and Financial Independence (IF) bloggers say that one way to escape from the matrix is by reaching IF. The faster, I agree in part, the IF is just one of the things that make you Escape from the matrix, but it’s not even the only thing, understand that escaping from the matrix is an advanced mental stage and you can escape the matrix right away, even without all the money, and achieving IF is not guaranteed to escape the matrix , Is just a tool that few independent people use properly.
But come on, you may not be accustomed to these terms, I gave a more extensive search on some blogs of the deep web and I will try to put in portuguese and adapt as much as I can to be clearer.
What is the Matrix?
The concept began to be explored better after the 1999 film Matrix, which generated a lot of cloth for manga even in the academic world and even now 17 years later is still in vogue, understand the matrix as being a metaphor of the world, the matrix is a reality Virtual where we are inserted and we are programmed to live and collaborate with the system because it feeds on our physical and intellectual work. The current matrix may not be controlled by machines as in the film but is controlled primarily by governments, schools, NGOs, religions and large corporations and the mainstream media.
Understand that the media is nothing more than an arm of governments, religions and large corporations, and with them they get confused. The matrix is who defines what we are and what we should be, in addition to controlling us mentally diuturnamente and also controlling the rest of society, our families and friends. One can understand that the matrix controls the Zeitgeist of our time as well and that it changes it according to its own convenience.
This subject is quite interesting if you care about freedom (as a deeper concept of being human and of humanity). Freedom is one of our most important and valuable assets, the freedom to think, to express ourselves, to defend ourselves, to bear arms (self-defense), private property and anonymity. And if you did not realize the matrix takes away your freedom every day with its prohibitions, its laws, the politically correct, our impossibility of self-defense, the threat of our private property and the obligation to identify ourselves in All the places and shopping on the internet, with Google itself and Amazon mapping our habits (and passing it on to the government in a timely manner), with facebook knowing about each step of ours, even on your phone if you have installed google maps , Google will know where you are all the time.
Even the “right to be forgotten” that was a very big fight of many people was totally blocked by Google alleging impossibility (to remove it – his name and his data – from the clearnet). So if you agree with all this, of not having the right to freedom and anonymity I can only mourn for you.
Because you have a moral duty to escape the Matrix.
Firstly because there is no freedom within the Matrix, what you have is just an illusion of freedom, a watchful liberty of both your physical body and your ideas, if you did not think about it, try to think about it, try to express an opinion a little Different from the politically correct one on Facebook and get ready to be shot by hate.
Try to have the freedom NOT to have a credit card to see how your life will be a bit more difficult. Try to make an Amazon account in anonymity (can not) or Google (if you want to buy something). You will find that you are surrounded.
And these billions of cameras everywhere? How many cameras have you filmed today? Not even at the door of our condominiums are we free (ah, but this is for our own safety), of course, and for the government to know what time you got in or out of the house, how you arrived and with whom you arrived and if you were carrying any boxes. Understand a simple thing, THERE IS NO LIFE WITHOUT FREEDOM.
The matrix imprisons you with the monthly counter-check, with that money that hardly gives you a free life, enough money just to eat, sleep, get dressed and carry. The matrix makes you think that this is what it has for you, that it is the just, that everybody works like this, that the world is like that, hence comes the financing, the debts, the interest, the marriage, the children, the fear To be fired because a lot of people depend on you and your marriage depends on your work and your money as well, so ready, total submission of the individual to the system. YOUR LIFE MUST NOT BELONG TO MATRIX AND YES TO YOU.
The thoughts outlined here can best be worked out if you read some authors like Ayn Rand (who have already done a post here), Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard among others. The positivism that Ayn Rand has launched is a cornerstone. The Austrian economic school is essential to learn the basics and Libertarianism itself as well as many concepts of Anarcho-Capitalism.
Libertarianism is extremely interesting and will give you back some of your power that was taken and you do not know. The Austrian School will teach you certain truths that have been stifled and anarcho-capitalism will show you that government is an unnecessary evil for society, governments have always been enemies of humanity.
So now let’s go to the practical part of the post.
How to resist the Matrix.
To start is not difficult, you need to detoxify the Matrix.
TURN OFF THE TV! Cancels your cable TV. TV is the worst toxic waste the matrix has ever produced. Use the TV only to watch movies and/or documentaries.
READ THE CLASSICS. Do not read this crap of commercial books made to sell to retarded Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, 50 shades of ash, and so on. They are books made just to make a profit for publishers and authors, they will not add anything to it. The classics you find for free on the internet, are free and form your personality and character, and for the most part the authors did not just want to get rich.
CONSUME LESS. Save, invest, think about IF, IF is a tool to catapult you out of the Matrix. Avoid financing, avoid interest, pay cash, bargain rebates.
TRY TO WORK FOR IT. Or with full income in a business of his own or as a hobby for leisure, physical labor and extra income (carpentry, plastic arts, vegetable garden) are examples. Life outside the matrix will require this, and it’s much better than you think or think.
USE THE INTERNET MORE. USE LESS SOCIAL NETWORKS. The higher the interaction with people in the Matrix, the more within the Matrix you will stay. FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM are gods of the Matrix, showcases of your life, your privacy and your privacy, and it will consume you in the long run.
Avoid going out into intimate photos at home, avoid exposing family members, avoid exposing CHILDREN, avoid exposing yourself, posting photos, posting photos of the streets, landscapes, try to disseminate ideas, not yourself. PLEASE DON’T BE A SOCIAL NETWORK TOURIST, showing what you eat, drink, where you are eating and what you are eating.
MEET THE DEEP WEB. Learn to use BITCOINS, study that, it’s a fantastic freedom tool. Download the TOR browser and learn how to navigate the deep web, you will be amazed by the content (96% of all virtual content is on the deep web).
FOOD IN THE STREET. Stop eating at fast food. Avoid expensive restaurants. Prefer to cook at home and bring food to work.
STOP DEFEND GOVERNMENTS. Defend freedom. If it is to defend a specific politician, defend the most CLASSIC LIBERAL possible, the one that advocates a reduction of the state, the increase of individual and economic freedoms and only.
PRACTICE SOME SPORT. Preferably outdoors, which is inexpensive and has the maximum interaction with other people, avoid too much equipment (soccer, running, swimming, volleyball, sports on the beach, etc.). You DO NOT NEED TO FREQUENT ACADEMY.
RESISTANCE IS A MENTAL STATE. Read philosophy. Read Stoicism and Stoic authors.
ANARCHIC INFORMATION. There is no crime without a victim. Knowledge must be for all. Share books and information for everyone, no fuss, no charge for it.
USE AND KNOW P2P SERVICES. UBER, AIRBNB just to give an example. There are even loans with bitcoins directly from person to person so you do not use banks. There is a P2P service to rent your car for tourists, I forgot the name. P2P is the New Economy, and that’s good for you.
DEFEND CIVIL LIBERTIES. Possession of weapons, possession of weapons, the sacred right of private property, non-violence, and non-interference of the state within your home must be respected. Remember there IS NO CRIME WITHOUT A VICTIM.
HELP BLOGS AND INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS. Shares, comments, likes, and even funding may be the option. In Brazil, I like the Mises Brasil Institute, the Spotniks, and the Portal Libertarianism.
PROTECT YOUR IDENTITY. Use nicknames. Avoid filling out tokens at address stores. Create another email account for business stuff that does not have your name or your data. Learn how to surf anonymous on the internet. Use the TOR. Avoid exposing your face on the internet. You can do a magnificent job without anyone needing to know who you really are.
You are a POTENTIAL VICTIM OF THE IDENTITY THEFT. With many of your photos I can make a Facebook and / or an Instagram of yours, issue opinions and post photos that CAN END YOUR CAREER OR WITH YOUR LIFE, and that is very serious. Imagine that I made a post in your name saying that I burned a live dog, or that I humiliated a black person, or that I had sex with a girl I drugged and she will not remember, these things are a real barrel of gunpowder. Avoid getting into controversial discussions that lead to nothing and only waste time.
MATRIX WILL ALWAYS EXIST. Resist alone, orient only family and close friends, do not burn for free, do not punch a knife, do not hit the Matrix head on. It is impossible to end it, it is impossible to change it, the only thing possible is to work on you, make plans for you and DO NOT LET MATRIX MAKE PLANS FOR YOU. YOUR PLAN IS NOT THE SAME PLAN OF MATRIX.
You know what MATRIX wants from you, right? For I will say:
Obedience to the system. Public and quality education and health.
Early marriage. Children as early as possible (so you become slave faster).
Too much consumption. Many financing, travel industry ( TRIP IS NOT EQUAL to BLISS ) tax payments, car exchanges and clothes and household items the ASAP (because you think that ALL YEAR INVENT THEM OR Relaunch THE SAME CAR TO YOU UPGRADE? YOU DO NOT It’s FRUIT, DO NOT BUY CAR ZERO KM. Why the hell does a person NEED a zero km car, when a 20,000 km is BASICALLY THE SAME THING?
Remember that the world’s verbal knowledge is that of the Matrix, it’s that Same old old tale of sellers, relatives and friends (your car is going to devalue, you have to change soon, your apartment has gone up selling price soon) these shits you listen to, BUY LITTLE, SELL LITTLE, USE EVERYTHING YOU CAN, Shoes to the car, PLEASE BE A DELAYED SHOPPING. Stop making money with your goods (real estate, automobiles, household goods, financial investments and etc. buy and hold, only sell if you lose value).
REMEMBER An individual outside the Matrix is hated, envied and even frowned upon. You do not need to see this, although it is impossible at times, but be as DISCRETE as possible so as not to draw attention to yourself, that is to be LOW PROFILE. Then I write more about it. I’m going to have meals here to get to work during the week.
