This is a call to action in a very different kind of revolution.

Several months ago I announced ReLOVEution. You can read the announcement here.

Several weeks ago, I presented a four-step ReLOVEution plan that you can read here.

We also launched a discussion/brainstorming/experimentation group on Facebook, ReLOVEution NOW. Check it out and join in!

I recently described and outlined ReLOVEution, breaking down what it involves. Please see the ReLOVEution Manifesto here. If you've already read it, skip down to "My invitation and challenge to you" below.

ReLOVEution

I have devoted my life — and my death if need be — to radically changing this world for the better. Ultimately, I want to realize heaven on earth, nothing less -- not in some fantastic, mysterious or magical way, but simply by aligning our beliefs with real experience so that we achieve what we want instead of the opposite, based on what we experience is true instead of what we were told to believe is true.

Before we can intelligently revolutionize our circumstances, we must first revolutionize our intelligence.

ReLOVEution isn't just an assault on authoritarianism, but an abandonment of the fears that plague authoritarians and have dominated the lives of us all. Having demolished the lies that drove us apart, we can reunite in creative, supportive, open communities characterized by care and confidence, and we can decide what to do about fear-mongers. It sounds like a dream until you personally start shattering the nightmarish delusions that prevent it. Then you see how doable it is.

Not only is risking experiment with radical change worth it, it's worth it even if you fail. I am proof that there is life after shattering personal upheaval and loss so profound that it destroyed my basic beliefs; and not just once, but several times over a five-decade span, each time knocking me flat on my metaphorical ass, forcing me back to square one. I recovered just fine and came back stronger. I realized that I hadn't repeatedly failed, but instead I'd stumbled onto a method for rapid, revolutionary, sustainable change. Anyone can do this, and I tell you: It’s incredibly powerful stuff. Far from plumbing its depths, we’ve hardly dipped through the surface.

My invitation and challenge to you

This work has not been attempted before. That might sound arrogant, and I'll gladly retract as soon as I find others or someone shows me others who advocate personal sovereignty and are working on radical reversal of basic authoritarian beliefs. So far, my claim stands unrefuted.

If you haven't yet read the ReLOVEution announcement, the ReLOVEution plan, and the ReLOVEution Manifesto, please do -- especially the Manifesto. These pieces crystallize my work of the last six years. You'll see how serious I am about ReLOVEution, how ambitious it is, and that you've never seen the like before. This is just the beginning.

Whatever your opinion of ReLOVEution turns out to be, you must ask why we haven’t already investigated it, but instead have intently avoided and dismissed its possibilities. We cannot very well intelligently say what will happen if we explore it, given our ignorance. Where and when exactly did we seriously, competently experiment with deauthoritized life? I can answer that question, because I’ve actually looked and found that very few have experimented with it, but the authoritarians of their times wiped out almost all trace of information about their ways of life. We have no choice but to start basically from scratch.

So, for lack of information about precedents, I'm experimenting with deauthoritized life myself and encouraging others to do the same. We certainly won't get much help from the institutions of our authoritarian societies. I invite you to get involved, explore these possibilities with us, promote the work, support it, and help further it. If you know others who are doing related work, help and support them -- and please let me know who they are.

Given our glaring lack of attention to ReLOVEution's propositions and their game-changing potential, everyone should support this work, if only to see what happens!

Exploring these angles isn’t just wise and honest, it’s now imperative. Hoping for different results while doggedly trudging the routes we’ve already worn out, blaming our recurring, dismal failures on “them” -- the other guys who refuse to comply and adequately perform and the bastards who keep this clown circus hopping in circles -- is literally insane at this point. There no longer are good reasons to decline radical options, but there's still a serious shortage of huevos to try them out.

Paths we haven’t yet tried might fail or lead us nowhere, it’s true; but when we’ve trodden all the old ones to muck and they keep leading us right back to the same few-extorts-many, denigrating, survival-threatening, violent bullshit we’ve lived under for thousands of years, we are fools not to pursue the options we’ve till now suspiciously, conspicuously, consistently avoided.

I’m already all in. I’ve devoted my life and my future to this. Let's dig in together and find out what happens. I’m telling you: you will be surprised.

What You Do

Patreon enables you to support the work of creators you appreciate.

Becoming a patron will help me focus on developing and advocating ReLOVEution without the pressure and distraction of finding funds for research, experiments, collaboration, and subsistence needs. At some point I hope to have books that sell well enough to float this boat. I'd much rather offer it all gratis -- this is truly a work of love for me -- but we don't yet live in a world where that's possible; at least I haven't yet found a way. Until I do, I need your help.

Patreon makes it easy and you're in full control at all times. You can pledge as little as $1 per "creation" and cap your spending to just $1 per month if you want, or choose any amount per creation and monthly maximum you like. Consider it a kind of set-your-own-price, online newsletter. You can read some of my posts on my Patreon Creator Posts page https://www.patreon.com/ReLOVEution?ty=c at no cost to you. (Be sure to scroll way down so that they all pop up.) And check out my blogs and Facebook pages, too (listed below).

I'll put up one to three posts per week. If I'm really on a roll it might be a couple more, and if I'm busy with research, collaboration, or experiments, as few as a couple a month, but that will be rare. You will only pay for what I post up to the cap you set per month. Me no write, you no pay.

So that gives you an idea what "creations" are and how often I'll post them.

All my patrons will have access to all my work regardless of pledge level. You're not paying to read them, but in order to help me keep writing them and fund the research, collaboration, and experimentation that will inform them.

In addition, I plan to post my ruminations, working notes, and experimentation reports and data for free, available only to patrons. My modus operandi is collaboration. I want partners in ReLOVEutionary misbehavior. What better way to stimulate discussion than openly being right, wrong, or unintelligible in the company of friends? Besides, I need all the help I can get!

How to Reach Me

Please contact me with questions, suggestions, feedback, complaints, rants, whatever! I personally respond to every message and email I get.
