found no other discussion forum yet that will cause someone to fervently
evaluate what they are saying." -- List subscriber
The purpose of the Tyrant-Paradigm Removal List is for subscribers to explore all
aspects of the tyrant-paradigm and to assist each other in removing the tyrant-paradigm
from their minds.
There are a few people on the list who have
removed all or most of the tyrant-paradigm from their
minds, as a result of previous debates and/or studying
the Clear-Your-Mind Reports. Some of
them are available to assist those who have not removed
the tyrant-paradigm from their minds.
If you consider yourself an anarchist, libertarian, supporter
of the "constitutional American System," etc., chances
are 99.999...% - 100% that your mind contains the
tyrant-paradigm. Your presence on the list needs to
imply to you that you are willing to receive assistance
in removing the tyrant-paradigm from your mind.
At a high level of abstraction, the tyrant-paradigm has been described by one
subscriber (Frederick Mann) as follows:
"To me, the "tyrant-paradigm" consists of certain concepts, ideas words,
patterns of thinking, attitudes, and beliefs that give rise to coercive political systems.
It includes the notion that the tyrants are so omniscient and omnipotent that they can
prevent individuals from living free. It also includes the factors at the root of some
people being ranked above other people.
I see the tyrant-paradigm as one of the most important problems in the world. I suspect
that as long as people suffer from the tyrant-paradigm, their attempts to create "new
civilizations" are unlikely to be very fruitful.
We've already identified some of the words, etc.
that constitute the tyrant-paradigm. They include "government,"
"country," "nation," "constitution," "law," etc. If you hold any
of these words in your mind as valid, then you suffer from the
The following quotations encapsulate some aspects of the tyrant-paradigm:
"Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why
should we let them have ideas." -- Joseph Stalin
"Language creates spooks that get into our heads and hypnotize us." -- Robert
Anton Wilson, Introduction to The Tree of Lies (by Christopher S. Hyatt. Ph.D.)
"It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head." -- Sally
[The words that constitute the tyrant-paradigm
are enemy outposts in your head. They are spooks that
get into your heads, hypnotize you, and prevent you from
seeing the reality of the entire coercive political system
(including the so-called "American System") as the obvious fraud, scam, and
hoax it is.]
"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the
oppressed." -- Steve Biko
[Tyrants "own" the minds of their oppressed
victims to the extent that victims hold contents of the
tyrant-paradigm in their minds. If you believe that certain
tyrant words are "the law," then the tyrants own your mind.]
"But to tear down a factory or to revolt against a government or to avoid repairs
of a motorcycle because it is a system is to attack effects rather than causes; and as
long as the attack is upon effects only, no change is possible. The true system, the real
system, is our present construction of systematic thought itself, rationality itself. And
if a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then
that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a
systematic government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that
government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves in the succeeding
government..." [emphasis added] -- Robert Pirsig in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle
The tyrant-paradigm consists of the "construction of systematic thought,"
"the systematic patterns of thought" that give rise to coercive political
systems, to some people being ranked above other people.
99.999...% of anarchists, libertarians, etc. carry in their
minds "the systematic patterns of thought" that give rise
to coercive political systems."
