TVP #113: [VonuFest2] Disconnecting From Babylon

[The Second Realm comes to Veritas, P.A.Z.NIA from September 27-October 4 for VonuFest2!]

Being a part of the servile society was untenable long before 2020. It’s time to build our alternatives, to build the Second Realm, & this P.A.Z.NIA Network…it’s time to found a Second Realm culture based upon peace, voluntaryism, & truth, not the coercion, deception, & manipulation rampant in the First Realm.

Let’s begin by gathering in physical space & time!

Last year marked the inaugural VonuFest, a now-annual, weeklong festival hosted at The Free Republic of P.A.Z.NIA. This private event is for the most committed agorists, self-liberators, freedom seekers, or otherwise vonuans. It’s also where we invite others to participate in our Second Realm – the liberated culture, our ethical enclave (agora)!

Although, due to the nature of the servile society, only vetted self-liberators are permitted entry – that is, I must know you personally, or we have to have a colleague in common willing to vouch for you. So yes, we’re having an incredible festival of liberation, but you probably can’t come.

(Sorry, but don’t worry – information on joining the P.A.Z.NIA Network and how to get invited are below!)

While we don’t put together a rigorous schedule and instead lean upon the spontaneous order of the agora, there will still be a number of self-liberation opportunities available for those looking to learn, courtesy of the following departments here at Veritas, P.A.Z.NIA for VonuFest2:

  • The P.A.Z.NIA Department of Permaculture (Food Self-Sufficiency)
    • Events could include: processing lambs/birds, fall gardening/harvesting, canning, planting trees, etc.
  • The P.A.Z.NIA Department of Defense (Self-Defense)
    • A handgun training course by Pat Henry
  • The P.A.Z.NIA Department of Health & Wellness
    • The possible experimentation with various electric/magnetic healing devices & the likely acquisition of an important piece of equipment
  • The P.A.Z.NIA Secret Space Program
    • Potentially some nights of stargazing with our newly-acquired 8” telescope

Other activities include fishing, swimming, evenings around the campfire, and quite possibly, a ceremony celebrating the issuance of the first P.A.Z.NIA Defense Contract to our head of security, Naomi De-Fence L.L.C. (Always be digging™), pictured below.


New to #TheFreeRepublic?

The Free Republic of P.A.Z.NIA is a more comprehensive, serious (yet also not serious) example/demonstration of what Erwin S. Strauss called a model country; P.A.Z.NIA being the first free country in existence right now, with the prefacing name (i.e. Veritas) being the city. Of course, much like the spirit of the Second Realm quote below, this free country is not geographically dependent and already has outposts all over the world.

We are tribes of mind and soul, not defined by nation or race but by thought and substance. We are everywhere – and we are here to stay.

–from Second Realm: Book on Strategy

While self-sufficiency is great, the economic principles of division of labor and specialization are still certainly worth utilizing, hence the P.A.Z.NIA Network. That, and the time to build our alternative, parallel society is now, as the servile society is collapsing into complete and utter technocratic authoritarianism.

With Veritas being the flagship example, I envision self-sufficient homesteads scattered all over, giving us vetted self-liberators a friendly place to trade for all necessities – nutritious food, health/wellness, etc. – as well as our own investigations into off-grid energy, water, and infrastructure projects like mesh networking, permaculture farming, and the eventual coordination of the P.A.Z.NIA Department of Transportation (P.D.o.T.) (our Second Realm delivery and logistics service), finally making obsolete the dreaded USPS. And as mentioned above, some P.A.Z.NIAs will specialize in manufacturing, building supplies (bamboo!), particular livestock, etc.

To reiterate, we’re replacing all necessary human institutions with ones on a foundation of peace and voluntaryism, utilizing this already vast digital network of freedom seekers.


Our Progress So Far…

2021 was (and is) the year of food self-sufficiency. We greatly expanded our goat/lamb operation and have ~30 birds (a combination of chickens, ducks, and turkeys) tearing up and fertilizing the front yard for a greenhouse in the near future. We are also at the early stages of our rabbit operation, a great local opportunity for entrepreneurial income. Further, we’ve begun foraging more, mostly for mushrooms and blackberries right now…and if you were unaware, so-called “cancer” cures literally grow on trees – they’re called turkey tail and they just so happen to be everywhere.

Ora has also been hard-at-work on the P.A.Z.NIA Gardens – we have a main garden with lots of vegetables and miscellaneous crops, a squash/watermelon garden, one for gardenstuffs like asparagus and potatoes, and finally zone 1 nearest the house. This zone 1 features our medicinal and culinary herb gardens, as well as other permaculture additions.

We’ve learned a lot and look forward to sharing in a few weeks come VonuFest2!

Setting Intentions: What’s To Come?

As per the title above, the theme for VonuFest2 and 2022 is Disconnecting From Babylon. This is the putting-into-action the off-grid objectives and the further building of the P.A.Z.NIA Network. For extensive information, I’d recommend you check out the 2021/2022 STEAKholder Bulletin, but briefly, here are some specific things we’ll be working on:

  • A privacy-focused map of P.A.Z.NIAs/Second Realms for vetted self-liberators (Founding STEAKholders)
  • Further coordination for seed exchanges, the P.D.o.T., & infrastructure projects (The Freedom Box, P.A.Z.NIA Lbry, mesh networks, and other free and open source software)
  • Planning for the construction of the P.A.Z.NIA Embassy at Veritas, designed with the eventual goal of being 100% off-grid (i.e. rainwater collection, well, alternative power, health liberation, etc.)


Join The Second Realm

Of course, our goal is the expansion of the P.A.Z.NIA Network in as quick and safe a manner as possible. But considering the rapid degeneration taking place within the servile society, we must do so in a calculated manner, so as to ensure the existence of these pockets of freedom long into the future.

At current, two membership opportunities are on offer to those interested and qualified: HONORARY (digital) & FOUNDING (vetted/physical) STEAKholders.



Please note, FOUNDING STEAKholders must be vetted as per the standards delineated by the P.A.Z.NIA Department of Freedom. HONORARY STEAKholder membership is for those who are not-yet-vetted but would still like to support the creation of the P.A.Z.NIA Network, while also reaping the above benefits of joining early.

Now, the burning question on everyone’s mind:

How do I become vetted to come to VonuFest or to become a FOUNDING STEAKholder?

*First and foremost, join our P.A.Z.NIA Committee of Correspondence Telegram chat channel and start building your reputation. Drop an introduction and whatever related information you think is important for us to know.

*This community isn’t that large, and so it shouldn’t be difficult to find a suitable digital connection we both have in common that will be able to vouch for you.

*If you happen to be in the area (Veritas is ~an hour and a half northeast of St. Louis), we’d also be happy to coordinate an off-site meet-up.

*And if neither of those are possibilities, you can always find us at the Midwest Peace and Liberty Fest (although, this will have to wait until 2022 at this point) and maybe other freedom festivals. These announcements always take place in the P.A.Z.NIA chat linked above.



While I could continue, I’ll leave this short announcement/article there and point you in the direction of a few resources worthy of your attention if any of the above intrigued you:

Thanks so much for your time today, and always remember…

Vonu is yours for the making and the Second Realm is yours for the building. -Shane/Rayo2
