The World of Self-reliance

Unlike the United States corporation, the Government of The United States of America is not designed to pamper you from cradle to grave. Office-holders manage the affairs of the Goverment. Likewise, Residents and American Nationals are expected to manage their public and personal affairs. There is assistance available but all Residents and American Nationals must assume liability and accountability for their lives.

It is important to understand that managing one's affairs not only requires personal motivation but also personal education. It is the responsibility of the individual to research unfamiliar subjects and concepts (contracts, PMAs, etc.). It is the responsibility of the individual to retain links to websites, to file accurate, legible and timely documents, to contact the correct office for inquiries, to attend meetings, to read Government notices and newspapers, etc. In short, it is your life and it is your responsibility --- not the Government's --- to manage it.

The knowledge you need for self-reliance will not come from watching television shows. Nor will it come from essays composed by liberty-man or freedom-fighter gurus. It will come from reading Government papers, listening to Government audio recordings, reviewing Government websites and so on. No individual can be an expert in every subject but each individual can, and must, possess a solid foundation for self-reliance.
