In a World Full of Problems, Stay Focused on Solutions

Wow! We are living in crazy times.

As if COVID craziness, lockdowns, and economic uncertainty weren’t enough, now we have bands of crazy MAGA peeps storming the capitol! 

What’s next? BLM activists streaking through the quad!?!

If you ask me, what took place at the Capitol recently reeked of false flag. Yes, the march was authentic, but it’s pretty clear the Q/MAGA crowd was let into the capitol.

The goal? Further marginalize MAGA and create the pre-text for the roll-out of new draconian anti-terror laws.  Just like after 9/11.

Text book problem-reaction-solution.

I break down the capitol fiasco as well as my thoughts on Q (likely a pysop) and censorship in this recent podcast.


While understanding current events is important, the focus of the Live Free Now Show is solutions solutions solutions!

Even if the world is going to hell all around us, we need to stay on top of what we have control over, not get lost in the reactive nuances of the politics of the day or the latest scandal.

On that note, I recently had the honor of interviewing Foster Gamble of the Thrive Documentary series.

Foster has been on the cutting edge of alternative systems and liberty movement for years now. ​​His focus on energy and the wonder of the toroidal cannot be underscored. There is ancient wisdom that has been hidden from the world and Foster’s work is helping to bring it back and bring it back in style.

Plus, he really gets it when it comes to the conspiratorial view of history and especially the consistency of voluntaryism as a political philosophy.

In the interview we talk about alternative energy, activist solutions, and what went into producing Thrive II.


I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know Foster better. He is super down to earth and doing some excellent work.

In the interview, Foster mentioned that he participated in the 7th International Freedom Cells Conference Call that happened shortly before our interview.

Freedom Cells are peer to peer mutual aid groups of approximately eight people networked with other small groups for the purpose of finding more freedom and achieving common goals.

On the call (which had over 175 participants!!!) I gave a brief presentation on best practices for hosting local meetings and organizing the Freedom Cell Network in your area.

There are now over 12,000 people throughout the world that are participating in the Freedom Cell Network. While many understand the need for community and decentralized solutions, many participants do not know how to organize or bring people together for meetings and networking. It’s my hope that FCs represents an opportunity for people to step out of their comfort zone, learning new skills and meeting new people.

Here is the presentation I gave on best practices for organizing local freedom cells.


Anyone can do this type of organizing. With everything that is happening all around us the time to build solid real life relationships with like-minded people in your area has never been more important. Do it!

If you’d like to listen to the entire 2.5 hour conference call, Derrick Broze uploaded the zoom video, CLICK HERE to check it out.

Remember to stay on top of  your critical thinking folks. If you focus on and research current events, do so in the context of better understanding how it effects you and then strategize on what you are gonna do about it.

At the end of the day, no matter who is marching or what group is rioting, we need to stay on top of our game, focused on solutions that will ultimately replace the state as a means of organizing society. Less government influence over people’s lives means less fervor and violence regarding who is gonna control the state. Less reliance on government means less division and greater harmony.

Let’s actively evolve beyond this craziness and build a better world.

We deserve it.

  • Hi there! What time location are we talking about that is scheduled? Is ot 6pm eatsern, central,mtn or pacific?
    Hope this finds you well

  • Hey, John! I’m just finished watching the replays of Bonus day of The Greater Reset. Excellent stuff. One thing that kind of gets me is a little bit of infighting of the vegans vs. the animal people. That shouldn’t stop us from learning from each other and working together. Freedom from coercion is the most important thing, and we need to keep remembering that. Government and so-called “elites” are the enemy, not each other.

    I did have a couple of thoughts I wanted to share, and perhaps you, Derrick, or someone else involved, can address some of these topics. First, I’m not a vegan, though I understand completely where vegans come from. In light of keeping a system resilient (like what Jonathon discussed in his presentation), non-vegans should be learning from vegans. Let’s say, for instance, that you raise chickens for eggs and meat. Then along comes a fox or disease and wipes out your flock. How will you get protein, iron, or other nutrients that you’ve been using animal products to get? If you want to tie the two communities together, perhaps something like that should be discussed more. I’m sure there are other topics that would be beneficial for all to hear.

    And lately I’ve been thinking about a couple of already-existing communities that we can learn from. We don’t have to adopt their belief systems or all of their practices, but what they already do in the modern world could help us build our own communities. The first is the Amish. I know, religious nuts, right? Well, most of us wouldn’t agree with their religious choices. No matter, we don’t have to adopt their belief system, but they already have community and work without a lot of modern technology in what appears to be a sustainable way. Why couldn’t we take the best of what they do and learn from it? The second is the so-called “illegal immigrant” community in the USA. They have to work within the system, yet work around it as well. What are they doing that we can learn from going forward? I realize you won’t get an Amish elder or undocumented immigrant on video to speak for obvious reasons, but perhaps someone has already done the research into those communities and can share what they’ve learned that would be useful to our efforts.

    Keep up the great work! I’m looking forward to seeing more from you.
