Accountability Check Update

Lets start with my failures and partial successes from my previous accountability check.

1. The first is that I have not found a single person with whom to share accountability and goals, likely do to me not putting enough effort in this direction.

2. I completely neglect to complete video content which was only partially a result of my unexpected move.

3. I have laid out how I am going to track my finances but have not put it into use yet

4. I have made progress on overall health and energy even though exercise is a little inconsistent.

5. I have a few job leads in my current location, however was also informed of a possible opportunity in Texas, the place in which I planned to move to in the next year or two anyway.

6. I have reduced my overall time spent watching anime and playing games, however time allocation is still needed tweaked for consistency

As for definitive steps forward I have a few clear successes in this area as well, even if some of these where not on my original list.

1. I have found a time management and tracking strategy, that while still being tweaked, works as expected

2. I will be completing my primary workstation by the end of this week (Just waiting for final parts.)

3. I have remained mostly on schedule towards finishing my first non fiction book laying out my philosophies, goals and overall company goals. (This is the most consistent I have been on a long term project to date)

4. I have vastly improved my linux system administration skills.

And finally for my goals for the next 3  month 

1. Implement accounting plan for personal finances by end of December

2. Finish first draft of book by middle of January (at latest)

3.  Reduce idle time to 2 or 3 days ever other week

4.Complete at least one video for YouTube channel

5. Sort out detail of next move

Our Freedom, Rights and the Role of Government

A right is the freedom in any moment in which all individual might have equal rights to choose in a manner that no one is denied the same right to choose and therefore cannot be anything that allows them to force another individual to do something in which he does not voluntarily wish to do. This works out to the freedom to control ones own life and the results of his labor and voluntary trade, as well as the right to defend it. The only rights a government has must be derived from the people and cannot do on the individuals behalf that which the individual is not allowed to do himself. All rights must always act on a universally applicable law and cannot have a double standard lest it violate natural order.
Freedom does not come from government, rather governments right to act is borrowed from the individual and can be revoked at anytime it is found to be violating the agreement. In the case of america its job was to defend against violent people who would initiate force against others. A voluntary tax in which people pay a percentage of a transaction as a form of trade insurance and access to the courts would be enough to support the proper function of government. Any transaction done using the governments form of currency would qualify as a contract in which all parties involved agree to allow the courts to arbitrate conflict and to accept the results. At the same time every one must be free to perform trade outside currency should the currency be found unreliable or trust in the courts diminished.
