If you want to know why the ONLY way to be moral and consistent is to be an anarchist (or voluntarist), read:

—- THE FIVE QUESTIONS —-
1) Is there any means by which any number of individuals can delegate to someone else the moral right to do something which none of the individuals have the moral right to do themselves?
2) Do those who wield political power (presidents, legislators, etc.) have the moral right to do things which other people do not have the moral right to do? If so, from whom and how did they acquire such a right?
3) Is there any process (e.g., constitutions, elections, legislation) by which human beings can transform an immoral act into a moral act (without changing the act itself)?
4) When law-makers and law-enforcers use coercion and force in the name of law and government, do they bear the same responsibility for their actions that anyone else would who did the same thing on his own?
5) When there is a conflict between an individual’s own moral conscience, and the commands of a political authority, is the individual morally obligated to do what he personally views as wrong in order to “obey the law”?

It is the most destructive, dangerous, bloody and virulent mind disease in history. In the 20th century alone, 200 million people were sacrificed at its altar. And almost everyone on the planet is a member. Join James as he tears up the rules on the cult of statism in this edition of Thought For The Day.

It is high time that those in mainstream academia be challenged on the authoritarian mythology they continue to teach. So I am launching a Kickstarter project to do exactly that. (Watch the video for more details.) I encourage anyone who understands and embraces the concepts of self-ownership, non-aggression and voluntaryism to support and share this project. (If I exceed my funding goal–even far exceed it–I will simply include more and more teachers and professors in the campaign.)

“The government does things that would be considered criminal if done by ordinary people.”
These words, spoken by Victor Pross, sums up the message of anarchy. It also sums up the message from the Sons of Anarchy event held in Vancouver this past December. Hosted by Liberty Mingle at the Railway Club, this anarchist gathering saw three thinkers, Victor Pross, Tim Moen and Walter Block, speak to a packed house. Like going to see a rock concert to see your favourite band, the Sons of Anarchy audience were familiar with the content, but they wanted to see it performed live. Pross showed off his art and gave us an introduction to anarcho-capitalism. Then Libertarian Party Leader Tim Moen took the stage and told personal stories on how he came to view liberty as the only means for human survival, prosperity and a flourishing society. Last, but certainly not least, Walter Block took the stage and made everyone laugh while conveying the importance of the Austro-libertarian tradition.
Dan Dicks caught up the speakers after the event. When asked if the liberty movement is growing, Walter Block answered in a definite yes. When he met Murray Rothbard, the intellectual godfather of the movement, they guessed that there were probably around 25 libertarians in the world. Now that number has exploded into the millions thanks to the work of people like Ayn Rand and Ron Paul. The future of liberty looks bright despite increasing state control in every part of our lives.
Enjoy the video and stay tuned for future liberty events in Vancouver! Not only is Press for Truth is out here, but Richard Heathen of Liberty Machine News has relocated as well! Not to mention, a branch of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada has opened up out here, which means liberty and Austrian economic books for sale! Move over environmental-fascists, liberty is gaining ground on the “Left” Coast of Canada!
Also, be sure to check out Anarchapulco, the first international anarchist/anarcho-capitalist conference of its type. Set in beautiful Acapulco, Mexico this event will include speeches by Tim Moen, Dan Dicks, Luke Rudkowski, Jeff Berwick and many more.

“The End of Oppression” is a six-part series of videos which show what it will take for humanity to finally outgrow and escape its long history of violence and oppression.
Part Three (“Good Funding Evil”) illustrates how the legalized extortion known as “taxation” creates a situation in which millions of decent, productive people end up inadvertently funding and enabling mass injustice.

As tragic as the shooting of Michael Brown is, it is even more tragic to see people seeking justice through the system that causes police shootings.

WE DECLARE BITCOIN’S INDEPENDENCE
When we say Bitcoin, we mean the idea: the birth of cryptocurrency. We know it’s not perfect. But we’re not after perfection, we’re after progression. We’re after a way out. And we will not stop.
We have been brought to a point where it has become necessary to dissolve the bond between currency and institution. We are not required to declare the causes which impel us to push for the separation, but we will oblige.
We hold these truths to be self-evident. We have been cyclically betrayed, lied to, stolen from, extorted from, taxed, monopolized, spied on, inspected, assessed, authorized, registered, deceived, and reformed. We have been economically disarmed, disabled, held hostage, impoverished, enervated, exhausted, and enslaved. And then there was bitcoin.
But we are in an age of appropriation, and nothing is immune. Today bitcoin is not only volatile in its value, but in its very essence. Bitcoin is in the crucial stages of development. Its code can evolve in several directions. It’s under threat from those who don’t understand it; it’s under threat from those who do understand it, but fear it.The crusade to absorb bitcoin into the seams of the State has begun. There is a conscious effort to co-opt. The goal is to swallow bitcoin, process it, integrate it, devolve it, and keep it stagnant in the gears of a failed operating system. Bitcoin’s potential is being hijacked. They have their own idea of what they want bitcoin to be. They have their own plan for its potential, and they have an investment in that plan. But our consent is withdrawn and the power of our ideas is too strong.
Do not underestimate DNA; nothing is born completely neutral. Follow the protocol: it has anarchistic implications. Bitcoin is inherently anti-establishment, anti-system, and anti-state. Bitcoin undermines governments and disrupts institutions because bitcoin is fundamentally humanitarian. There’s an elimination of 3rd party intrusion. It’s purely peer-to-peer. The blockchain is free speech. It’s decentralized, voluntary, and non-aggressive. Bitcoin is not supposed to work within our current mechanisms. Bitcoin needs not entities of authority to acknowledge it, incorporate it, regulate it, and tax it. Bitcoin does not pander to power structures, it undermines them.
Bitcoin is an animal of anonymity. Bitcoin basks in shadow. Satoshi’s facelessness is symbolic of this. Privacy is the point. Bitcoin is meant to function outside of regulatory systems. It is not a cog.
Bitcoin means to channel economic power directly through the individual. This is reflected by Satoshi’s symbolic birthday, which falls on the same day that Roosevelt signed the 6102 Executive Order, which forbade the hoarding of gold. We repeat. Bitcoin is not intended to be integrated; it’s intended to be a ghost outside the machine.
The voices of the people who are working to preserve the purity of bitcoin’s ethos are being drowned out. But actions speak louder than words. Bitcoin is utility. The cypherpunks are building anonymous systems. The crypto-anarchists are making institutions arbitrary. The internet is anarchy. And cryptocurrencies are the printless fingers of the internet.
Bitcoin is not just a currency, a commodity, or a convenience. Just like the internet gave information back to the people, Bitcoin will give financial freedom back to the people. But that’s only the first step. There will be a shift in the structure of enterprise, in the way we interact, in the way we voice our opinions, and in the way we fuel our action. Bitcoin will allow us to shape the world without having to ask for permission. We declare bitcoin’s independence. Bitcoin is sovereignty. Bitcoin is renaissance. Bitcoin is ours. Bitcoin is.
