TEDx talk which shows people's obedience to "authority."

http://www.youtube.com

Scam School's Brian Brushwood does a TEDx talk wherein he covers a few studies showing people's ingrained obedience to perceived "authority."

Although it is presented from a magic and scam perspective, the studies he brings up are very telling, and representative of the difficulties we face in turning people away from blind obedience to "authority."

It's unfortunate, as relying on perceived "authorities" is likely an evolutionary development, and has benefits, however it is sadly so exploited by those who seek, or are already in, "power."

Independent Tax Preparers Fight Against IRS Power Grab

http://ij.org

Arlington, Va.—New Years is rapidly approaching, and with it come sweeping new regulations that could force tens of thousands of Americans out of work. Despite a federal lawsuit filed in March by three independent tax preparers and the Institute for Justice (IJ), the IRS remains committed to implementing an unprecedented licensing scheme. The new regulations benefit powerful industry insiders and burden some 350,000 independent tax-return preparers, ultimately harming 85 million taxpayers.

We Fund Dependency

http://www.realclearpolitics.com

"There are no jobs!" That is what people told me outside a government "jobs center" in New York City. But, 4 researchers quickly found 40 job openings. So what goes on at these government "job centers?" I asked a college intern, to find out. Her conclusions:
--It's easier to get welfare than to work.
--The government would rather sign me up for welfare than help me find work.
--America has taxpayer-funded bureaucracies that encourage people to be dependent. They incentivize people to take "free stuff," not to take initiative.

How Do We Change the System?

http://floridiansliberty.blogspot.com

To change the system of government, we must first gain a much louder voice. A voice that simply "being that other party" tends to lack. Generally, we do not even have to switch parties to assist gaining that voice. There is a growing number of youthful individuals that have read Dr. Paul's works, and realized the current political hierarchy has screwed them over. They are the ones hearing the need for candidates that care about the next generation, and are running. Running to spread the message of liberty;

Little Words with Absolutely Huge Meaning - Use Them

As children many of us hyped the statement, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Clearly, it doesn’t take long to realize that words have far more weight than we want to realize. They influence thoughts, feelings, actions and states of mind. Even little words often have big meaning.

Think about it. Whether you want to land your dream job, improve your friendships, save your marriage or retain your employees; the words you choose can make all the difference.

Father Tapes His Autistic Son being bullied at School.

http://shine.yahoo.com

"The morning of February 17, I put a wire on my son, and I sent him to school," Chaifetz says in a video he created to showcase the audio clips. "What I heard on that audio was so disgusting, vile, and just an absolute disrespect and bullying of my son, that happened not by other children, but by his teacher, and the aides -- the people who were supposed to protect him. They were literally making my son's life a living hell."
