In Defense of Cantwell, Kokesh and Molyneux

Soliciting donations is absolutely essential in order to sustain activism, be it the on-the-street type or the digital kind. And make no mistake that activism, especially through community building, is essential to build a more libertarian future. We build better libertarian communities not by vilifying market exchange but by offering better products.

Black DC Cop Would Enforce Segregation

This is the kind of jaw-dropping insanity that people will simply not understand after this police state has been put to rest. How could a person of African-American descent NOT recoil in horror at the thought of he, himself, imposing a known historical injustice on his fellow African-Americans? What a disappointment. “I don’t make the […]

Lemonade Freedom Day was last Saturday, August 20th. As many as 30 families across the country participated by selling lemonade with their kids. One stand, near the capitol in Washington, DC ended with the arrests of Meg McLain, Kathryn Dill and Will Duffield. See the excellent video above for the whole story. Their performance was […]

The State Causes the Darkness but Who will Bring the Light?

First, is the guilt for riots exclusively that of Negroes? And are they a natural development to a new stage of struggle? A million words will be written and spoken to dissect the ghetto outbreaks. But for a perceptive and vivid expression of culpability I would like to submit two sentences that many of you […]

Seasteading is not about No Rules and Loose Building Codes

This Yahoo News article about PayPal founder Peter Thiel’s donation to the Seasteading Institute cracks me up. According to the writer, the libertarian project consists of “no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage, and few restrictions on weapons.” LOL. In reality, libertarianism is about having legitimate authority, voluntary authority. Right now, the world is […]

Ron Paul does not Speak for all Libertarians

It’s great he’s [Ron Paul] anti-war. And for legalizing drugs. I’d be tempted to vote for him just based on those two things except…he’s a hypocrite. And he wants to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Let’s forget about that though and just get back to the hypocrisy. All I hear from him is “personal […]

A Civilization Starter Kit on One CD

This is simply amazing. Should I get some land someday, I hope to build a lot of Marcin’s tools and put them to good use. More information at Open Source Ecology. The political aspect of this is also fascinating. As he mentions, the means of production are now in the hands of the people. There […]

Do you Know What Statists Need?

People who support the state consciously or unconsciously, wholly or in part – why do they do it?  I see a lot of moral condemnations in the liberty community. Call them sheeple, tell them they’re asleep, say they should be hurt. Whatever. But WHY do they do it? This might be a question you have […]

Rioting: NOT a Form of Protest or Activism

The thesis of this image is that doing the peaceful thing didn’t garner them the attention they wanted, so doing the violent thing is worth a try, and, lo!, it worked. It got them the attention they wanted/deserved. Mission accomplished! What a disgusting moral bankruptcy. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Just because someone hurts […]
