Nothingness and Liberation


As an anarchocynic, I find myself looking through the open and secret history of humankind very often. Part of my apparent contradiction to folks comes from how one must needs hop from this to that to the other in order to follow a line of thinking that is more covered over than fully apparent.

Seeking to find others of my ilk, I disclose the lives and teachings of distant companions who have looked for liberation on-the-Way. These historic quests–taking place above or beneath the surface of humanity–sway widely and swing wildly from utter pacifism to violence.

Embracing non-violence as I do, there still wells up interest in the liberated who have taken up the sword.

Hasan ibu-al-Sabbah is such a one. I happened across an old website today that had a great many quotes and links that some of my brothers and sisters in the Ether may find interesting.

As my website attests, I am no friend of committing violence and I do not ally myself with any form of terrorism. Weapons and killing, anger and hatred veer too far from the Way (see Daodejing 31). Still, I will hold that we must study how some have sought liberation through such means.

  1. intriguing and borderline dangerous philosophy …I believe No means No and is not only applicable to sexual advantages….We are capable of communicating ..not just paying lip service but attentive listening , compassion and sharing skills of knowledge…resources and cultures without resorting to take human lives that for the most part and unfortunately turned out to be innocent humans lives ….
    We indeed have choices and that choice should not include killing one another , after all we share more than just DNA….

  2. Sorry, Karmami. Just got back home.

    Oh, I think it is beyond the border into the middle of dangerous. This is the kind of doctrine that can be seen metaphorically as a certain way to deal with the “inner enemy.” But, of course, it has most often been turned to real death and destruction. I think Hassan i Sabbah is a good figure to study, however, because so many of people with military power or political control enact the worst aspects of the Assassin’s Creed.
