 Episode-2682- Get Ready for an Action Packed Second Half of 2020 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:59:09

I am not talking about CoVid Wave Two or any bullshit that might come with it.  Nope I am talking about what TSP will be all about for the rest of the year.  I am now only a few days away from my once a year vacation.  I will be spending two full weeks on the beach with my wife.  Recently a family member asked Dorothy, what do you two do for that long on the beach. Her response was epic and just one of the reasons I love her, it was, “nothing”.  Ha! She followed up with “Well really Jack fishes in the early morning, I sleep in a about two more hours, I get up and take a walk, hang out with Jack for a while.  We do breakfast, then swim in the ocean, then lunch, then take a nap, then dinner then a very long walk, then the next day, the same thing.” So her first answer was really right, I call it “being productive while doing nothing”.  Two weeks of beach made ceviche and relaxation is just what I need. But I have never had more excitement about the future at the same time.  When I come back we are going head long into the Podcast Super group.  Everything going forward is going to be designed to push you harder then ever to get what you most want in your life, no matter what the rest of society does. And it all starts with an amazing 13 part series while I am gone, the most ass kicking group of rewind shows ever, with lots of new ass kicking content.  Each episode will have a step you can take to get more of what you want in your life.  How ass kicking, well instead of calling it a 13 step plan, I ended up calling it a 13 stomp plan!  Today I tell you about that and set the stage for reclaiming everything the first half of 2020 took from you in the second half, no matter how tough times might get.

 Episode-2681- The Problem is the Solution if you Correctly Define the Problem | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:20

Today we are going to discuss a permaculture principle many are familiar with, “the problem is the solution” but we are going to do so without really going into what most people see as permaculture.  In other words while I may use some analogies to growing crops here, the problems we will discuss are going to be more main stream problems. The key to making the principal of “the problem is the solution” it two fold. Understand this does not mean the problem is not in fact a problem.  If we have an actual problem, and we have many of them we need to address it. ` For the principle to work, the problem must be precisely defined in a very accurate manner.  If we fail to accurately define the problem we will end up with the saying of many computer programmers, “garbage in, garbage out”.   In my view many times the reason we struggle so hard to solve problems both individual and global is a failure to correctly identify the actual problem.  Today I will take on some of the largest and most sensitive topics in our world.  Indeed I think you will see, when you properly identify a problem, the solutions to it become very evident, very quickly. Join Me Today to Discuss… I want to change the principle from “the problem is the solution” to “the problem defines the solutions” Some Big Issues and how we identify the real problem to find the real solutions The concept of “white privilege” How can we “feed the world” How can we provide “health insurance to all” How can we solve “wealth inequity” How can we solve a “failing school system” What this pattern teaches us Centralization is often the problem, soooooooo Division is always the goal of the elite, sooooooo Failure to focus on what we control never fixes anything, sooooo The solutions really are often, quite simple, but simple does not mean easy Final Thoughts – How you know you accurately defined the problem Real solutionS (key on plural) become obvious Additionally often you will find the problem is more accurately problemS In general said solutions will have a broad consensus vs divisive The solutions will be largely decentralized and actionable The solutions will run counter to both sides of the main stream dichotomy   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum TspAz.com Good Enough – Molly Tuttle   Sponsors of the Day Western Botanicals FSP Free State Project   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2679 – Disconnecting from the Psychotic Loop of Media Content | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:03:19

Today’s show was chosen by open suggestions from the TSP Facebook Forum, the person suggesting it put it this way. Disconnecting from the political/media insanity. You did a show a while back reiterating circle of concern, etc… recent news has brought tons of your listeners back into the psychotic loop of following politics and corporate news, getting angry, following more, etc… like it really is the most important thing to their personal well being (which couldn’t be further from the truth). This resonated with me a great deal.  Here is why, I can tell you the two stories that will dominate the next two weeks and what the angles will be. CoVid is spiking – It isn’t we are finding more cases because we are testing 8X more then we were less than a month ago.  Hospitals are likely lowering the standard to admit patients because they are largely ghost towns and they know the bill will be paid.  In the end they will try to keep the lock downs going, in some areas they may succeed in most areas, the people are done and will more and more just go back to living.  If shit gets locked down or opened in your area, you will know, nothing the TV says for the next two weeks is necessary on this for you to live your life. ` The protests – Some random bullshit bipartisan crap will be passed and held up as changing the world, not shit will actually change.  The riots will fizzle out because they always do, some people will still march but it won’t really matter.  Some cities will take some money from cops, no one is going to “disband the police”, this all may upset you but it will have almost no impact on your life.   Other than that unless you are trading stocks or traveling to an area where you need to know if something is going on there, bluntly just say eff it and take a break from this shit.  The two points above are the exact narrative you will hear tonight and baring some huge event (that someone will tell you about if it happens) in two weeks when you turn the TV back on, it will be the same shit they will be saying then. Join Me Today to Discuss… Some bullshit truth wrapped in lies I heard just today about CoVid hospital numbers in Texas What a fnord is, and why they only work when you don’t see them The way I think Americans should “protest the lock downs” – quietly and effectively Why you should just get away from the media for a while They have been telling you basically the same shit for 4 months now It is absolutely damaging to your psyche No good is being brought to your life from it It is likely holding you back from something you want to acomplish It makes you focus on obstacles vs. paths It is also likely damaging your phyical health It is probably damaging your personal relationships The formula for control of a society First make yourself look weak Allow your citizens to feel helpless Find an enemy or three, build them up Look weak in front of this found enemy Hope they attack you, create an attack if they do not Divide your people on all possible issues Call anyone who speaks out against government a terrorist, conspiracy nut, etc. Wait until your people beg for “protection” and demand tyranny Give them what they ask for Repeat as necessary The number one way this is currently accomplished is the news, turn it the hell off!   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Sister Golden Hair – America   Sponsors of the Day Butcher Box Backwoods Home   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2678 – The Ultimate Conversation on Children and Technology | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:35:07

Matt Kleopfer joins us today to discuss the impact of technology on children and families. Matt grew up as a stereotypical midwest farm kid, but like most decided to ditch the farm for a college indoctrination and pursued music and education. After 2 college degrees, Matt grabbed his helmet and shovel and headed for the trenches of public government education in a small rural Kansas town. After spending 5 years in the government school scene, Matt noticed some very alarming patterns. By this time he and his wife had four kids and were looking for an alternative. It all changed one day when Matt was on his 52 mile drive home and he listened to a podcast by “some asshole named Jack”. In the episode, Jack spoke about “Creating your won version of liberty”. That night Matt turned and tossed as the thoughts wouldn’t leave his head. He spoke with his wife the next morning and drove to school only to find the kids lined up outside the doors like robots waiting for their daily dose of mediocrity. At his first break, Matt walked down and turned in his resignation. Matt now home schools his four kids and runs a small 40 acre farmstead where they grow nearly all of their own food. In the last several years Matt has been a faithful listener and integrated many TSP ideas into their daily life. Jack, I thank you and the tsp community for all you have done for those pursuing a life of liberty.  Today we have an amazing discussion on technology, how it is both beneficial and highly dangerous to our children, and honestly ourselves along with how to set proper boundaries.

 Episode-2677- Individual Insurrection though Group Action – The Podcast Super Group is Coming | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:26:37

Just a week ago I was inspired by the awesome Curtis Stone to reply to one of his videos and an idea formed.  What if a group of podcasters dedicated to liberty in every meaningful way from permaculture, to education reform, to well, everything came together to tackle the big problems in a new way. Rather then telling you what solutions we think you should use, we simply discuss them, in a way designed to teach people not only what can be done but how to discuss big ideas with total respect for everyone one in the conversation, focusing on the common goal over the individual methods. What if this group really was a “super group” made up of proven successful voices.  What if they all came together with a round table format and did two shows a week with different panel members in each show.  What if they created a way for their audiences to all connect and shared reach, knowledge and resources freely.  What if? Some what ifs, never happen, some what ifs move slowly, some move really fast.  This one is moving fast.  My goal is to have the first episodes out in July, a system established that keeps them going independently of any individual member and community for all of our existing audiences to interact based on the common ideas of liberty, the principle of non aggression and the universal truth that agorism is a natural state for humans. So far confirmed members who are in include… Vin Armani Peter Queninos John Bush Xavier Hawk Curtis Stone   We think we have at least one producer selected, we have another potential member that is likely in and the rest of the group has been asked to suggest more folks to add to get our number to about 12. This has all happened in about 5 days.  Today I will discuss the concept further, including a possible name for our movement, unloosethegoose.com and a pretty cool slogan.  “Individual Insurrection though Group Action – We do not seek to be alone, only to be left alone.”  And a concept for the flag of the insurrection, note this is not the final design and this one belongs to someone else, you can actually buy it here. Today is just a look inside my brain, a call for suggestions and an attempt keep this project open source from day one. The basic concept The importance of a leaderless organization and temporary leadership roles Anything you do that is really big has to be bigger than you Building a cross network community of problems solvers, doers and consensus builders Solving the problem vs. pushing a solution you are married to The concept of the “talking stick” How anyone can do this in their own back yard Why I feel all solutions are decentralized Some of the big problems we want to address and my initial thoughts Physical communities and the road blocks to them Heath and nutrition and making words into a crime Why you can’t expect the education system to do anything differently ever Feeding the world, by teaching the world to feed itself Reversing the trend of domesticating humans and why feral does not mean what you think it means How to make John Bushes “freedom cells” work Why technology is our ally and some things we can do with it Creating a new generation of polymaths How Bill Mollison actually lined this out in the 14th chapter of the PDM all the way back in 1988   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Sandman – America   Sponsors of the Day Bulk Ammo JM Bullion   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2676- Replacing the Modern Education System | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:29

I want to talk about a new initiative I am working on today in bringing together sort of a podcast mastermind group.  Then I want to prime that by giving my potential solutions for the current flawed system of so called “public” education. There is no doubt that the modern education system is in trouble, in decline and headed off the rails.  Part of me is very excited about this, there is another part of me though that understands a fundamental truth. The death of any system is a death of a mechanism of control, so its death will create a power vacuum.  So unless you have a solution in place ahead of such a death, the replacement for it will often be worse or just the same exact thing under a new name. So today I want to provide multiple methods of making sure we continue to get the one thing we all want, “a good education for our youth”.  It is indeed that universal desire to see to it that the next generation is “educated” that was used to sell us a system of total control by the by the power elite in the first place. To be blunt you don’t want schools, you want an educated population, you just see schools as THE way to attain that end.  I simply want to get you to consider that it is simply A way to get to that end today. Join Me Today to Discuss… Quote of the Day – “The foundation of every state is the education of its youth”. ~Diogenes A few thoughts on the Podcasting Super Group and a call for a person to help with the technical side On redesigning the means of education in the modern world How modern education is exactly like monocrop farming and why that simply can’t truly provide education How humans have learned for most of human history Understanding why people continue to support a solution that even the people who run it call broken They were trained by that solution to support said same solution They buy into “credentials” many not all of which are total bullshit They have never known or seen an alternative They understand the importance of education of the next generation to their generation Continued marketing by the state, “teachers are heroes” and “every child should go to college”, etc. The biggest reason is the state has become an educational day care provider The system does actually work, it may be a failed system but it also does “work” Just a few solutions to the current failed system First understand I am going to use everything currently available and provide multiple options Remove any ability for government to make any form of education compulsory True educational choice using the existing funding (taxes) but let the parent truly be the customer Educational cooperatives Company schools as a benefit of employment Schools run by retired adult volunteers, perhaps paid minimally Path specific schools for older students, could be almost 100% self directed learning Just consider that public education is becoming automated anyway and what that really means Also understand you can teach the fundamentals with any subject of student interest Finally we all truly learn things only when we believe we need to know them   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum TspAz.com Lonely People – America   Sponsors of the Day Western Botanicals FSP Free State Project   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2674- The Time to Get Out of the Cities Has Long Since Come | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:11:06

I would say that the most current crises of CoVid and the Riots should be the final nail in the coffin if you have not already seen the writing on the wall.  Life in large cities is just not a good life for humans, it is no longer necessary to make a good living and truthfully it just keeps getting worse. And as the title indicates as bad as they are, they really are not the final straw as that really fell long ago.  Large scale high density cities are in my view at best a failed experiment and at worst one of the primary methods of controlling a population.  I recently discussed aspects of this in a recent episode where I compared cities to ticks, in that they are a resource sink. Some on social media thought this was an attack on people in cities, it was not, it was an attack on the system of cities themselves.  When you treat a person in any unnatural way they behave in an unnatural manner, not unlike what happens when tourists ignore the signs that say, “do not feed the bears”. Join Me Today as We Discuss… Why did men create cities? To centralize power To centralize production To justify taxation How have humans traditionally lived for most of out history Small settlement Population was highly controlled though various means Any space not in a controlled territory was considered “common” Wars were rare and always short Resource use was not exceeded Disasters were naturally mitigated Why do people live in cities today The most common reason is really being born there The next most common reason is “opportunity” What you really get from cities Less freedom (in life and business) More taxes Lower air quality More pollution in general Less wild life Greater risk of disease More violent crime What are the options for “getting out of the city” The Urban Rural Fringe (Nine Mile Farm) The true small town (Shabogeanville) Way out here (the sticks ala Josh Thompson) Only you can know what is right for you What one solution may look like that can be duplicated Small settlements that reclaim old towns or create new ones Economies are built on a local first mindset Common areas tend to be “wild” Managed common areas are managed by volunteers Communities have a planned maximum size Communities trade first with other communities before the rest of the world The truth is that idea is great, there are many great ideas, but don’t wait on any, take action The lesson in how many blame others for lack of action compared to being a prisoner of war attempting escape Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Permaculture Green Room – Get a ton of Amazing Free Videos We Gotta Get Out of this Place – The Animals   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2671- 12 Easy Productive Summer Plants and the Best Ways to Store Them | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:28:55

I was told today that I needed to do less about plants and yes, this is a quote, “Jack, Don’t mean to sound negative, but our country is burning down!! I know you get excited about new plants. We need to concentrate on proven things now. Time to get back to basics!!” I have to say I was up in the air about what to discuss today until I got this email and it shoved me right into plants and food preservation.  While not what the guy meant, what other than that is a proven thing that is part of the basics?  Seriously do you think me adding to the talking head chorus right now about who is right when pretty much everybody involved is wrong will help?  This guy then went on to say…. “Our lives are fixing to get the FUBAR treatment!” He damn well may be right too!  So you had better right now get with being more self sufficient and the best place I know to start is with food.   Right now unless you live in an urban center you have very little to worry about from riots.  When riots happen, stay away from them, see to your own shit and shore up your weaknesses. I live only about 20 minute from Fort Worth, my total plans to deal with some of the shit that is going on there right now are as follows.  I am not going to go there while this is going on  I am prepared to defend my property as I am always  See numbers 1 and 2   I also expect the odds of rioters marching out to where I live where 90% of home owners also own guns and will shoot you in the face if you try it to be low.  Instead I am focusing one what I control.  Today I invite you to consider doing so as well… Join Me Today to Discuss… Okay you want something on the riots, they teach us Most people are assholes, the less they have to lose the more so Get the hell away from city centers, they are simply not good places for humans to live Pay attention to what is going on, then avoid problems See to your own shit You want to really know why people will “burn down their own cities” the simple answer you won’t hear on TV Why focusing on self sufficiency is the only real solution – ties into our quote of the day from Bill Mollison “We’re only truly secure when we can look out our kitchen window and see our food growing and our friends working nearby.” Now on to better things The best methods of storing your garden production and how to do them Sun Drying Dehydration (yes this is different in a way) Blanch and Freezing Canning (acid water bath and pressure) Quick Pickling Lacto fermentation In ground storage (improvised root cellaring) Cold season stasis (don’t worry it will make sense) Almost nothing – yea this is a thing Ten Productive Summer Vegetables that Store Well Tomatoes Peppers Egg Plant Beans (string and dry) Cucumbers Sweet Potato Summer Squash Winter Squash Swiss Chard (any greens) Herbs Berries Ground Nuts Final thoughts – ask yourself what you control   Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Fermented Vegetables Book I Mentioned The Spirit of Radio – Rush   Sponsors of the Day Ridge Wallet Backwoods Home Magazine   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2669- 12 Really Cool Plants Inspired by Joseph Simcox | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:02:08

Joseph Simcox was awesome on yesterday’s show and after talking to him I looked up more of his stuff.  I found this amazing 3 part garden tour on YouTube and listened to all of it and selected 12 plants inspired by it for today’s show. This stuff is right up my alley and I know it is for many of you.  While you have heard me talk about some of these before many of them are brand new to TSP for sure.  Finding a new plant that provides food, fiber, medicine, etc. is like finding a new gem.  In many ways is it better.  If I buy a gem, I have a gem, if I buy a pack of seeds I can create hundreds or even thousands more seeds. I now have some new food or other resource in my life and I can always create more of it.  Ron Finely of CA who is an original gansta guerrilla gardener, is famous for saying “growing your own food is like printing your own money”. I agree and will add, finding a new plant that is easy to grow, pest resistant, tastes amazing and produces like crazy is like trading in your 5 dollar engraved plates for 20s. Each plant on the list has a link, some are for seed sources and others just a starting point to learn more based on what I could find. Oh and one of today’s plants is growing in my garden right now and is featured in this video I did today. Join Me Today to Discuss… Quote of the Day – “Growing your own food is like printing your own money”.  ~ Ron Finley The incredible value you get from finding just a few new plants every year The 12 Plants for Today’s Show Papalo – A Heat Loving Cilantro Alternative (link for info) (seed) Red Bangladesh Amaranth  – (seed and info) Lettuce Leaf Basil – (seeds) Achocha – (seed) (information) (more info) Tomato Leaves – yea really, no they are not toxic (link for info) Woodland Sunflower (cousin to Jerusalem artichoke) (info) (seed) note not sure this is seed for the right plant Egusi – (info) Desi Summer Squash – (seeds) (info-video) Dwarf Papaya – I don’t have a seed source I trust yet.
