I Am Not an ARCHIST!

Q.1. What is an "archist?"

The archist:

  1. initiates force against others
  2. engages in punitive retaliatory vengeance
  3. does not respect others' rights to private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, instability -- violent overthrow of competing archists;
  5. promotes monarchy, oligarchy, socialism, fascism, "the dictatorship of the proletariat," democracy, republicanism, etc.

Jones is an "archist"
if Jones initiates force against Smith
or threatens Smith with violence and harm
in order to compel Smith to think or to do
what Jones thinks Smith ought to think or do.

Famous Archists:




Q.2.  Where did you get this word "archist?"

From the Bible.

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10, Jesus discovers His disciples arguing about who is going to be the "greatest" in the Kingdom of God.

They didn't understand that Jesus' Kingdom was quite unlike the kingdoms of the world.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. {44} And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our word "anarchist." Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists."  In fact, God hates archists.


Q.3. What are you promoting in place of "archism?"

  1. persuasion, not violence and compulsion
  2. "turn the other cheek," not vengeance; (1 Corinthians 6:7)
  3. private property, homesteading;
  4. "Let all things be done decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40)
    be a martyr rather than a revolutionary
  5. The "Vine & Fig Tree" society


Q.4. What a minute . . . Hold on!
If you're not an "archist," then you must be . . . you --  you're -- You're an Anarchist!
 That means you must be:

  1. a bomb-throwing
  2. terrorist
  3. who denies the doctrine of private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, and riots in order to
  5. overthrow the government by force and violence and set up the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat" or some other dreadful scheme."


You've got it completely backwards.

Go back to the top of the page.

You just described the "archist."


You are a victim of educational malpractice.

You have fallen for the Biggest Government Lie in Human History

Our Ever-Growing
National Debt

The Gross National Debt
Just about every American agrees that
   Government Debt is too high
   Taxes need to be reduced
   Wasteful Government programs need to be cut.
The problem is the definition of "wasteful."

If you get a check from the government because there is a government program that benefits you and your group, then you might agree that everyone else's program is "wasteful," but your program is "vital" to America's "economic growth" or "national security."

Everyone thinks their program is uncuttable. "Off the table."

And they demand that their Congressman get the rest of Congress to vote for their program.

But the only way your Congressman can get enough votes to pass your program is to "compromise" and vote for the programs requested by a majority of the other 435 Congressmen.

That's about 217 votes. So every dollar you get from Washington costs you (or your children, or your grandchildren) 217 dollars.

(We're simplifying, but you get the idea.)

Of course, you want more than one dollar. You wanted (or passively accepted) $10,000 to fight the war in Iraq
             total cost of war = $3 trillion;
             # of people in U.S. = 300 million.
             cost of Iraq war per person = $10,000

The only way we're ever going to get wasteful, harmful, unconstitutional government spending cut is for us all to agree that we will no longer ask Congress to initiate force against others to redistribute their money to us.

Even if that means cutting the program that sends us a check.

Archists cause economic collapse.
Don't be an Archist.
