I recently listened to Tom Woods host Bob Murphy and Walter Block on his PodCast. They debated the topic of accepting government money. I'm not sure any of them hit the nail on the head. Here's my response.
Here I discuss the concept that we need those who will engage the state head on and those that can support them by avoiding the state to keep their noses clean.
Is the Media pumping the Russian Hack nonsense to distract us from the corruption in the election that is coming out? Steve and I chat about a few other topics in the process and just have a generally good time!
Voting itself is an act that limits freedom. Might a vote loosen the chains a bit? Yes, but loose chains doesn't make one free.
Anarchist strategy is an important topic and comes up a good bit between us. Here are my personal perspectives on which strategy to take to best end/fight the state.
Good People Don't Tell Others Not To Do Non-Violent Things. In this episode I break down the original phrasing and suggest an alternative phrasing for better communication.
This topic is vital to what happens after the existence of government as we know it. What is to Become of Government Property After Collapse or Abolishment?
I felt the need to expand upon a previous episode and add in the topic of what actions and strategies anarchists might take in fighting the state.
Being ok with Gov violating other's rights leaves the door open for your's to be violated as well.
By taxing more things or increasing existing taxes we allow or enable government to grow. Things like the militarization of police will be enabled.
What is a Statist? What is an Anarchist? Does voting make someone a statist?
My buddy Steve and I went off on the post election madness and discussed the topic of his new article Money Vs. Curency.
Kal Molinet came on the PodCast and we discussed all sorts of topics from what he and his group of anarchists are doing in Richmond to some of his basic perspectives of typical anarchist topics.
While I agree that shrinking government is often well intended I don't see how it will benefit future generations.
My goal was to create a fun episode this week. So I presented some musical talents I think anarchists might enjoy and inserted a clip of each artists for your listening pleasure. I also discussed most of the resources and businesses that I have introduced on my show through interviews with their creators.
I recently watched Stefan's video "Why I Was Wrong About Libertarians" and felt the need to respond. He touches on a wide variety of topics that all boils down to.... the lesser of two evils is Trump and Stephan supports using force(violence) against everyone else because he has failed to reason with them and they use reason, up until this point.
Rodger Paxton runs The LAVA Flow PodCast and joined me on this episode. He gave me the details on all of his projects and then we jumped into talking about the election. We touched on topics like Third Party impacts, potential WW3, Wikileaks and the Free State project in NH!
I'm sure we've all heard how if you don't vote you can't be productive in changing anything.... well, that's just not the case.
Here I get into election rigging and some of the evidence we can find of it. The current situation with Russia and possible WW3 also came up. I wrap it up with a discussion of whats been going on with Wikileaks.
Individualism>Collectivism or Individualism<Collectivism....
It's Individualism and Collectivism
This episode explores two quotes about civil disobedience as well as my own personal thoughts on the subject.
The focus of the episode is creating reality as humans, but I do get into a few things that we as anarchists should always consider.
In this episode I discuss wealth outside of the common understanding of today's society. Can it be created? Is there a fixed amount of wealth?(zero sum) Get a discount code to SlaveorSovereign.com!
