Neil and Martin have both read God and State by Michael Bakunin and decided to spend this episode reviewing the book. We cover everything from his life story to his writing style to his perspectives on ....everything! Join us for a great time!
The left only sees exploitation and the right only sees market forces at work. We, however, do exist in a statist environment which enables exploitation and the market(subjective value of individuals) always has an impact. Could left plus right add up to the whole picture? Subjective value is the key to understanding the ups and downs of "prices" in a free society.
Charlottesville protests...what's the point? North Korea is the next target for drumming up statist feel of warmth and fuzz. NJ was just declared a national emergency due to opioid overdoses. Martin joins me to discuss there current events from an anarchist perspective.
Martin and I go down all the rabbit holes of trying to change the state. Is it worth it as an anarchist? When, why or how should an anarchist get involved? Are there better steps to take rather then getting involved with the state?
The real issue at the core of the Open vs. Closed Border debate is how to deal with government property after collapse or abolishment.
Experiencing freedom within a government that employs a police state can be a bit tricky and complicated. Here's my take on maximizing our experiences of freedom.
Is there a reason Anarchists should avoid third party protection? Strategy? The same strategies that overcome anarchist differences will help maintain a free society.
Both Democracy and the Market boil down to direct action. This could be key to overcoming the left and right issues in anarchy.
Some people in the anarchists, libertarian and voluntarist circles talk about building communities to start free societies. This episode's focus is about whether or not that is a good strategy for right here and now.
Locals have had a hunch this was going on for decades why the sudden investigation and arrests? Whats the real problem here? Is it just the deceit of a few people?
I spent my honeymoon in Jamaica and did my best to observe the condition of life and freedom as well as the political landscape. Here are some thoughts about what I observed!
Martin joined me on this episode to discuss how anarchists of the left and right can come together. Martin has more of a background in left anarchism and I right. So together we are able to really get to the bottom of some of the division between anarchists.
From Samuel Konkin3 to Tom Woods to John Vibes the strategy is becoming clear. Freedom Cells! Through Relational Anarchy we can better cooperate and build cells that allow for the growth of a counter economy and law/justice.
Did Trump just flip-flop or did the "Deep State" get him right where they want him? Either way many of his supporters of the libertarian or Alt-Right flavor seem to be displeased with how things are going down in Syria.

How far does Compassionate Anarchy go? Is there room for defense against other perspectives using coercion or violence?
Sterlin Luxan joins me to discuss the tools of Compassionate Anarchy. We talked about how to use logic compassionately and how the two main schools of economic thought might work together! Sterlin also provided some interesting info on the side effects of arguing about what is right.
Counter economics is the best strategy for anarchists to make the state obsolete. Compassionate anarchy is how we swell our ranks so that we can more effectively carry out that mission and maintain a free society after the state.
How can we apply Lysander Spooner's two writings, A Plan for the Abolition of Slavery and To the Non-Slaveholders of the South, to the fight against statist slavery of today?
Does it seem like Reason and Logic just don't quite cut it when you're trying to convince a statist to become an anarchist? Sterlin Luxan runs Psychologic Anarchist where he discusses using compassionate and relational anarchism as a better approach to reaching others.
What is Agorism and what qualifies a person or action as Agorist? I get into the answer to those questions and a great quote on the matter in this episode!
"The recognition of the libertarian incompatibility of statist means to anti-statist ends was the first agorist insight. following that the new agorist looked for the proper means to achieve a free society or at least a fully libertarian society. They sought market means only." Samuel Konkin 3
What is the biggest piece of news since Trump's inauguration? Could it be that the puppet strings of the deep state have been partially revealed?
This is for Agorists and their critics alike! What is the focus of Agorism? Does Agorism claim an individual should not vote or should use welfare?
This seems like a cut and dry issue, right? I'm not too sure about that. I tie in some thoughts about what happens with public property after government from a previous episode and get down to the heart of the matter.
My focus on this debate isn't just to highlight good or bad arguments for or against the state, but to attempt to point out errors in communication that seem to leave the message hanging in the balance.
James V Baker joined me on this episode to discuss what happened in Dearborn Michigan recently when he walked into the Police Station practicing his legal open carry rights. We also get into a discussion of what exactly an Independent Police Auditor is and how he goes about being one himself.
