Here is an op that appears to be entirely consistent with the peaceful evolution concept I talked about a couple days ago. The little dictators dba The Government in Keene, NH demanded that Ian Freeman (of Free Talk Live) pay them $2,700 FRN for the privilege of continued possession of his house.
Leveraging the Robbery to Forgive the Robber
I don’t fault Ian for paying. As Ayn Rand said, “Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where the gun begins.” When a bandit points his gun at your head, it is reasonable to do as he says. But Ian took the further step of buying himself some time with the bureacrauts who enabled his exploitation: he paid in $1 bills. This gave him the time to, among other things, forgive them for what they were doing! Beautiful!
Free Keene: Itself an Evolution
This is the kind of thing that makes the Free Keene project special. It’s a game-changer. This kind of genius catapults Free Keene from just an offshoot of the Free State Project to an evolutionary step up.
