Opening Minds to Personal & Economic Freedom

Current Society

Producers:  They produce all the products and services that we use to fulfill our lives.

Looters:  They take resources from the producers and use those resources to control the producers and moochers.

Moochers:  They receive booty from the looters and become victims by becoming dependent.

Producer Society

Producers:  They produce all the products and services that we use to fulfill our lives.

Bosses:  These people, as consumers, are the real power in a producer society.  They are the people that producers and leaders must satisfy.  They are the people who buy the producers goods and services.  If they are not happy, they will buy from somewhere else and thus provide real order in a society where everyone gets what they want without force or coercion.

Many academics, writers and thinkers have embraced and are embracing the ideas of  Producerism.  Going all the way back to the ancient Hebrew civilization during the time of Samuel.  The Hebrews were a completely free people.  They were consenting adults engaged in voluntary exchange for mutual benefit.  They had producers, leaders and bosses.  They had judges to settle disputes but they wanted a king.  Samuel tried to warn them what would happen if they had a king but they wouldn’t listen and asked for a king anyway.  Hence, they engaged in politics and were no longer a free people.  Right up to the present day politics (government) has a grip on people's freedom all over the world, including the United States. 

So why does this happen?  It's the nature of man.  As the 19th century French philosopher Frederic Bastiat said in The Law, "Self-preservation and self-development are common aspirations among all people.  And if everyone enjoyed the unrestricted use of his faculties and the free disposition of the fruits of his labor, social progress would be ceaseless, uninterrupted and unfailing."  He goes on to say:  "But there is also another tendency that is common among people.  When they can, they wish to live and prosper at the expense of others."  Thus, man has created government under the guise of protecting his rights but also under the myth that under the state everyone can live at the expense of everyone else.

The whole idea of using government to control people is a flawed idea.  Government by its very nature doesn't work because it allows people to use "the law" (force) to benefit one group at the expense of another group.  Thus, it breeds moochers and looters. 

Producerism is evolution not revolution.  Producerism is the idea that people can rise above using government to meet their needs.  It is based on positive actions rather than negative actions like taxing and regulating other people for one's own gain. 

Producers learn that they can stand on their own two feet without government support.   Looters learn that it's more profitable to be producers and more fun. And moochers will go away because they will become producers.

Is producerism utopia?  No!  People are not perfect and neither is producerism perfect.  However, the benefits of a society with no taxes, lower prices, less time needed to work in order to survive, more creativity, prosperity, charity and freedom would seem like a utopia compared to what exists by people living under government rule.

Politics takes resources and freedom away from individuals and redistributes it to Looters and Moochers.  This is immoral.  When left alone people get what they want from each other by entering into agreements of voluntary exchanges of property or labor for mutual benefit.  It's a win/win activity.  Politics is a win/loose activity.  Therefore, all that is really needed is a way for agreements to be honored and remedy obtained when disputes arise.  Is this possible?  Yes.

Two of the books which have been written on how to achieve this are: 

Market For Liberty – by Linda and Morris Tannehill

Chaos Theory – by Robert Murphy
