Bottom Unity is the Future

In response to attacks in a lengthy and convoluted thread here (closed group for LP delegates, relevant portion shown at right): I defended Matt and “rent is theft” during his hashtag campaign because I understand that fiat title represents a statist program for enclosing unowned property without justly acquiring it according to libertarian principles. Even Rothbard acknowledges this. I don’t believe that rent is theft in all times and places but I believe that in an open, voluntary market it would cease to be a widespread practice because supply and demand would no longer be distorted by the interference of

Gun Owners United Will Never Be Defeated

This is a pep talk for gun rights advocates demoralized by the media onslaught of images from gun control rallies from around the nation. Please, take heart!! This is not the disaster it seems. First of all, guns are like apple pie. Learning to shoot is a rite of passage for many, and the relationship of independent firepower to phrases like “consent of the governed” is part of any solid political awakening in the land of the free. Remember that the gun control faction of the Democratic Party is only a percentage of their base, and Democratic Party loyalists themselves

The Sweet, Sweet Tears of My Enemies

For those keeping track, Merissa Hamilton is infamous for infiltrating grassroots libertarian networks by fronting a professional facade and then detonating her gadfly aesthetic so that it sprays everywhere, dragging down everybody in radius with shrapnel damaging their reputations. A  short list of these “scandals” include, accusing the Povertarian Caucus of embezzling money via the Anti-Inaugural Ball, “exposing” grassroots people who were running for county party office in 2016 for planning a “coup”, accusing Arvin Vohra and Nick Sarwark of instigating a #PizzaGate style “pedo epidemic” in the national LP, and collaborating with Adam Kokesh and the Mises Caucus on

“Privacy” Is My Middle Name

Yes, that is a Janet reference. Don’t hate me because I’m fabulous!! #nasty Anyway, I posted the other day about switching to Brave Browser … I like it, but its extension / plugin capability isn’t ready for prime time yet. But, with both feet out the door on Chrome I can’t bring myself to go back!! So, I’m finally jumping head first into Firefox. Having a great time geeking out on setting it up for maximum privacy!! For a long time I had been operating under the logic that the convenience I gained outweighed the risk of tracking what I

The NRA is a Dismal Failure

Gun control advocates really only have themselves to blame for abandoning justice circles to progressives. If they hadn’t spent decades cozying up to white supremacy, prioritizing the gun rights of cops and military, and worshiping at the altar of the GOP, the pro-2A left might actually have been able to find common ground with their peers on the right. I’m glad organizations like Redneck Revolt and Phoenix John Brown Gun Club​ are out there crafting innovative narratives that draw on the leftist roots of community empowerment and I hope together we’re able to reinvent what it means for the people
