Going to go on hiatus from making blog posts for a while. Not sure how long, but at the very least, I won’t be making posts regularly like I have for the past few months.
It’s been just over a year since I started this blog, and I’ve definitely learned a lot by making it. I realized what a bad writer I am and hopefully have improved somewhat on that front. Learning to express your ideas in writing is a great way to learn those ideas themselves. You find out what you know well and what you don’t know so well. It’s a great way to expose holes, big and small, in your knowledge.
I’ve also always been really bad at this reflection stuff ^. That’s all I got to say, so yup, until next time.
I have a new layout as well because the title wouldn’t fit on the old layout. Not particularly fond of this so might change to something else in the future if I find it more appealing.
Nevermind, kind of liking this new layout now.
A week from now, I’m going to change the title of this blog from Intellectual Liberation to The Interventionist Paradox. The URL will be changed as well, to i20x.wordpress.com; that’s why I’m waiting a week to change it. Don’t think it’s much of an issue, because I don’t have very many viewers anyway, but just in case 🙂
If you’re wondering “why the name change?,” it’s basically because I thought the previous title was somewhat pretentious-sounding and I’d much rather have a name that doesn’t have that sort of portrayal. Plus, I don’t think the URL without wordpress is available for that title, whereas if in the future I want to take that off, I can do so with the new title.
For those that don’t know what the interventionist paradox is, it’s a phrase I’ve coined to describe how the use of violence and intervention with private ownership and individual rights necessarily backfires and how unintended consequences always co-exist with the use of aggressive force.
A good example of this would be a father beating his child in order to make him behave better. Not only will the child fail to behave better, the beatings will become a necessity and a habit of the father. The father will find he will resort to beating his child and will not be able to quit once he becomes accustomed to beating the child every time the child behaves badly. The unintended consequences will be the eventual worsening of behavior of the child and the harmful effects on his psychology in later life. If you want to look more into this particular issue, I suggest you listen to Stefan Molyneux.
Oh, and a funny picture I found at another wordpress blog.
Hey guys, I’m a young anarcho-capitalist and I’ve created this blog to share my philosophical, political, and economic views about the world. And perhaps anything else that strikes me as interesting. For those that don’t know, anarcho-capitalism is a philosophy advocating the abolition of the State while retaining private property rights and the natural law. Society without the State does not equate to a society without law; rather it equates to a society in which government is privatized. People are free to do as they wish and have complete liberty unless they directly conflict with the liberty of others. Feel free to comment or follow me if you find anything of interest.
