VoluntaryJapan

A lot of people, including myself, don’t know too much about Japanese politics, or what goes on here in that realm, it would seem. As a Voluntaryist, my only interest in *any* nation’s politics is how they affect and/or threaten the freedom and exercise of individual self-ownership of individuals like you and I. In this video I discuss the current “nen kin” pension controversy (this is the Japan...
(Originally posted on the Voluntary Japan Facebook page today, June 9th, 2019) Voluntary Japan could really use your help right now, guys. Trying to live the Unschooling lifestyle with my child, not take teaching jobs at public schools (on principle), and continue working on content production means just one very small income (mine), for my family, very little time, and lots of pressure from ...
(This article was originally posted in May, 2018, here.) Where are we going? A group of crypto enthusiasts mingle boisterously, swapping stories and loud laughter on the front steps of the Two Dogs Taproom, Roppongi, Tokyo. Directly below, a cemetery stretches into the distance, blanketed in shadow, and is broken abruptly by another line of buildings in the immediate distance. The tops of ...
• More draconian laws crippling the industry via May legislation/reclassification of crypto (forcing small non-exchange businesses to register as exchanges, resulting in extremely unreasonable licensing, fees, and monitoring requirements). • Less economic freedom. • CEO of Japan’s first crypto social media comments. Why the crippling laws? In a free market, hosts don’t pay parasites. That’...

It’s the anniversary of the famous “tank man” in Tiananmen Square, and a new, revolutionary crypto trading platform has been released. This inspired me to record some thoughts on the nature of freedom in general, and economic freedom specifically. Exercising economic autonomy is HONORABLE.

Today I gave a short presentation and participated in a discussion on #education and #unschooling at our local free school here in rural #Japan. Individual minds are changing and waking up all over the world, and the philosophies of non-violence and individual self-ownership are becoming more and more articulated and promoted as awareness grows, even in places like Japan, where some might think ...
“The Future of Education” Hey everyone, I’m going to be doing an informal talk/discussion at a local private free school about what I think is “the future of education” or “education of the future.” I was brainstorming and decided to clarify my thoughts in video form as well. As I see it, educational organizations in an “enlightened” future (one where the majority understands economics/nature/...
I’ve reached out on Twitter, but haven’t gotten any response…
Anyone else experiencing this? At first I thought it was because I was on mobile. What gives?
Today my son and I got out to Kamoyama Park in Niigata Prefecture, and climbed a little ways up the small mountain, to take a ride on one of his favorite roller slides. These slides are found all over Japan, and are one of the many wonderful things about the culture here, and its inextricable connection to nature. The enjoyment of fun and natural beauty. Not to mention the freedom and trust afford...
(I’m typing this on my phone, so if the formatting is subpar, please do extend at least some moderate degree of understanding.) I just heard of this platform via a post by the Bitcoin.com official Twitter account. I’m sitting on the train now riding home from work with my mind spinning around all things Bitcoin Cash, crypto, and potential for the future. Like many of you (at least, I’m assumi...
