Tom Paine’s Common Sense.
A preliminary statement by Brad Linaweaver and J. Kent Hastings on behalf of their mutual friend, J. Neil Schulman.
Dear fellow libertarians, for some reason unknown to us, Neil Schulman thinks that our opinions will carry some weight in the current libertarian civil war between open source and IP. Since one of […]

Tom Paine’s Common Sense.
“JeffTheAlmighty,” a YouTuber who appreciates the “J. Neil Schulman and His Trolls” show on IMDB, has gone mad and invested work into the creation of a video titled “The Twelve Days of Schulman.”
Among other things, Neil does political writing (the video’s “conspiracy theories” line?). Schulman just published an attack on Bill O’Reilly for his wrongheaded […]
It’s been over a month since I wrote a blog post, but that does not mean I have not been busy. Or not. Wtf?
I worked on two movie projects, a magazine, an audio dramatization series and got a new ham radio.
First, there was the FT817ND transceiver I bought from Ham Radio Outlet. It’s backpackable, runs […]

Let’s stop pussyfooting in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and even the Iran invasion to come. These “nations” are quickly smashed and their occupation is hardly worth the trouble.
Egypt might take a month or so to crack if we decided to take them on for the militant Islamic extremism that hasn’t quite been revealed–yet.
But why waste time […]

KARL HESS CLUB MONDAY AUGUST 15, 2011 ennouncement
Howard Hinman “The Secrets of MERS and the Massive Mortgage Meltdown.”
I received the following in email, and now it’s a guest editorial blog post, somewhat in response to my write-up of Chuck’s talk at the Karl Hess Club which you can hear here, but will you listen?
“You Knew That” By Chuck McGlawn
Left means more government. Right means less government
I will bet you that all the […]
Despite a warning from a skeptic of herbal medicine, “Plants are trying to kill us,” the OC Weekly paper kind of touts “Really?!?!? The Miracle Berry: A Solution to World Hunger?.” That’s the name of the cranberry-ish fruit. Miracle Berry. But it has an amazing property that you’ll have to read about in Michelle Woo’s […]

Gary Chartier “The Conscience of an Anarchist” BOOK TOUR
This is remarkable.
Today, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested, on December 7th, a date that will. . .well, you know. Also today, the State Department announced that the U.S. will host a World Press Freedom event on May Day, 2011.
Are you calling me a liar? I saw it on Facebook (thanks Jason Seagraves), how could […]
At Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow posted “Indie Band Survival Guide: soup-to-nuts, no-BS manual for 21st century artistic life.” The post clearly explains how the success of the authors with their band (named there) makes them “in the scene” and qualified to write on the topic. (Nobody can say I hijacked this “hot news,” even though […]
After being thrilled connecting up a Pixie 2 based QRP Miniwat ham radio transceiver circuit board purchased on eBay to random switches and plugs I had around my room (see the Resilient Freedom post about my “Bumble Bee transceiver“), I’ve been rereading some classic QRP books (low power designs–great for backpacking and […]
Here’s a link to the complete transcript on the C4SS site of a speech delivered at Drexel University by an Agorist news analyst, “Darian Worden on Practical Anarchy.”
The following excerpt from Worden’s talk asserts that advocating anarchy is easier than selling “minarchy” (SEK3’s coinage) :
“Advocating anarchy is more practical than advocating minimal […]

The Last StationThe Last Station depicts the end of Leo Tolstoy’s life in 1910. There’s even a website dedicated to honoring the Tolstoy Centennial.
Here’s the IMDB listing for The Last Station. It was released in 2009.
Excerpt (with small changes) from the description at user TrailerDelivery’s YouTube channel. Tolstoy is played by Christopher Plummer.
Anarquia is the novel I co-authored with New York Times bestselling author, Prometheus award winner and Nebula finalist, Brad Linaweaver.
Anarquia has been selected by the Freedom Book Club as one you can vote for now as the selection for the August, 2010 Freedom Book of the Month.
Votes will be counted for the August FBotM until […]
The topic of IP (intellectual property) attracts the most comments and trackbacks to this blog, but I avoid it because the subject divides the freedom movement into angry parties filing lawsuits. Read Stephan Kinsella’s “L. Neil Smith / Free Talk Live Copyright Dispute” at Mises.org.
Kinsella says IP requires coercive statism, but he’s a bad, […]
Salman Khan, founder and faculty of the Khan Academy, has more lessons and viewers online than MIT and Stanford.
With over 1,600 lessons in various fields and growing popularity with students worldwide, Sal Khan has been featured on the PBS Newshour and CNN.
“A very bureaucratic organization,” the former hedge fund analyst jokes about his volunteer teaching […]
There’s predictable opposition to Arizona’s “Jim Crow for Mexicans” law (what I’m calling “Jaime Cuervo.”)
But there was even initial concern from the notorious anti-immigrant former congressman Tom Tancredo before he remembered who he was. According to the Huffington Post, “Tom Tancredo Says Arizona Immigration Law Goes Too Far, Still Supports It.”
For some on the […]

The Mad Tea Party
by Brad Linaweaver
Here’s a prediction.
In the future the Tea Party movement will call for higher taxes. It will be done in the name of national security. Their beloved Leader, Sarah Palin, will be in the forefront of demanding the increased revenue. She won’t call it taxes. She will […]

SF Weekly just published an article about Shaxul Records in their “In Store” column about local record shops in San Francisco.
Stone Clement runs Shaxul Records with a partner who, because of the exoteric absence in the article, evidently must not be named, in a hole in the wall joint specializing in Heavy Metal […]
Sometimes you can be a prophet in your own land.
Permaculture founder Bill Mollison was recognized for his work educating millions throughout the world by leaders in his native Australia.
“Bill was awarded with the distinctive title of “Senior Australian of the Year 2010 – National Finalist” in a ceremony held in Hobart on November 23, […]
Karl Hess Club, Dec, 2009
California Legal Rights Fund founder, Geo. McCalip, laid out his strategy to radically change how the State of California enforces every law in his Karl Hess Club speech, “Fomenting Revolution for Fun and Profit.”
Here’s a link to an MP3 recording of the talk at the CalRights.org blog.
Geo.’s approach reminds me of […]
Newsweek has a reputation for bias toward the Democrat party in the U.S. Browsing their website tends to support that notion, because of the anti-Fox News and pro-Federal Reserve articles. That Fed support is a bit much even for most Democrats. Job numbers are “growing” (still at 10% unemployment) and anything else the administration does […]
Geeks and nerds everywhere are celebrating Monty Python’s 40th anniversary. From USA Today:
“”We should have had the 37th anniversary or the 41 and 1/2 anniversary; 40 seems too predictable for Python,” says Michael Palin, one of six members of the comedy troupe that launched Monty Python’s Flying Circus in 1969.”
Don’t worry, Mike. Giant man-eating snakes […]
At the Karl Hess Club on Monday, August 17, 2009, Chuck McGlawn argued that libertarians should reclaim the term “Right” as an important step in defending freedom.
Although I use “left” and “right” as he defines it for certain issues (which U.S. political party started more wars?), I wouldn’t call Rush Limbaugh’s support of the Patriot […]
Geo McCalip sent me email about forced innoculations on August 7th. (Quoted in full at the end of this post). I figured he got something wrong. Forced innoculations? I doubted it. He must have misheard some talk about childhood immunization requirements by some well meaning Obama health official. Bush/Cheney’s reign of error is over, isn’t […]
I’ve been following Bruce Schneier’s career since I reviewed the first edition of his Applied Cryptography book for the Agorist Quarterly in 1995.
Just a few years ago, Schneier was talking about the probability of post-9/11 threats on a computer security podcast. The chance of any particular American facing terrorist violence is nearly zero. But there […]
FreedomFest in Las Vegas had good attendance for a libertarian event. Read more about it at J. Neil Schulman’s FaceBook page (log in required).
The list of exhibitors leads off with energy and mining companies. They probably get hassled by Atomic unions lead by the likes of Homer Simpson. OCAW is an actual really for […]

The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia published the cheerful report, “Monsanto Runs Into Wall. Yes!!” in their “Why Permaculture/GMOs” website section.
Poor little Monsanto must be feeling the heat. They’ve got a Biotech-GMO cheerleading page online that essentially says organic customers and growers face no danger from them.
I’ve been listening to the Audible edition […]
