Prohibitionist Nannies On Parade

Adventures in the Free State - Tue, 2018-04-17 14:06 +0000
Well, that was oppressive (but I do it for you, gentle reader). So here we are again with NH's very deliberately hand-picked "Prohibition Justification Commission", AKA, the Commission to Study the Legalization, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana, which has deigned this day, 4/16/2018, to hear from actual -- if not actually all that representative, if polls are any indication at all (and, too, it needs noting, mostly rent-seekers) -- citizens.

The "public comment" portion begins at about 22 minutes, following a college paper. Excepting your humble chronicler's own svelt testimony, weighing in at about a minute and a quarter, the remaining 10 average a torpor-inducing ~15.5 minutes apiece (granted, they get commodious "help" from the commission). Today's relentless catch-phrase: the ever-popular 'for the children'. Adults must simply accept being treated like children by their betters.

Here is the issue, mentioned by Commission member, Attorney Twomey a dozen ticks shy of the 19-min mark, regarding Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and his proper political intercession, on behalf of his actual constituents no less, against the DoJ's sabre-rattling regarding re-igniting the dying embers of that very "War On People Who Use (Some) Drugs"™. After that, maybe a freedom-oriented person might want to just skip to Rick Naya, the final speaker, at about 2:29:00.

The cognitive dissonance is strong in these crusaders, at least several of whom actually helpfully instruct the commission that the horrifically expensive (in blood, treasure and liberty) drug war does not work -- and yet they're here advocating that NH should continue that unwinnable drug war. Does that seem right to you -- especially if you're among, according to many polls now, the two-thirds of voters who want it ended, maybe even believe it was never authorized in the first place?

One more time. In a free, civil society, the rule of law must be respected. Therefore, in a free, civil society, servant government ought to obey its instituting Constitution. In a free, civil society, unauthorized fiat prohibitions must end. This aggression will not stand, man.

If you want prohibition -- of cannabis, or alcohol, or cigarettes, or harmful calories (watch the video, understand the "health choices" hypocrisy) -- you are first required to get the People to pass an authorizing amendment. A mere legislative statute is flatly insufficient in this Constitutional Republic. Once upon a time, even servant government understood that -- and the People eventually rectified their own grievous and costly mistake.

But no amendment is needed in order to repeal an undelegated authority. All that requires is an honest, servant government.

Uh-oh...

Make the Agora Great Again

George Donnelly - Fri, 2018-04-06 20:29 +0000

Nation-state power is declining.

Trust in national institutions is faltering across the globe.

The specter of collectivism, nationalism and racial identity is on the rise.

What if there was another option? What if, instead of a return to early-20th-century-style strong-man protectionist regimes, we could create something better? Something less likely to lead to war and recession?

What if we could create a global market anarchist order, a swarm of self-governing jurisdictions that effected security, lawmaking and conflict resolution via freed markets outside the nation-state?

What if we could do it right under the nose of the nation-state, incrementally decentralizing its power, in the form of a private organization?

Why does such an organization not yet exist today?

There are political parties for every statist ideology, from the environmentalists to the Nazis. There are advocacy organizations for human rights, for the rainforest, and for the poor.

But there is no organization whose purpose is to plan, execute and support a global market anarchist evolution.

It’s time to start such an organization. Let’s call it Agora.

Goals

What are the goals of Agora? Here is an initial draft:

  • to support our members in our individual searches for liberty, prosperity and self-realization, and to come to the aid of fellow members in times of crisis or need;
  • to spread liberty across the globe and end the reign of nation-states by planning, executing and supporting a global market anarchist evolution;
  • to incubate the institutions required to provide law, security and dispute resolution in a stateless world;
  • to educate all of mankind in its birthright: liberty;
  • to support and incentivize radical accountability, responsibility and integrity for every human being; and
  • to cooperate with other private societies that share compatible goals, methods and standards.
Operations

What does Agora look like?

  • It is managed by dApp (smart contract), perhaps via Aragon or district0x.
  • New members are admitted via an application process.
  • Membership has a price and carries benefits.
  • Members must post a bond to ensure good behavior.
  • Members who engage in coercion or fraud can be removed from the organization.
  • Members vote on the rules (laws) of the organization. This is how lawmaking is bootstrapped.
  • Members are obligated to come to the support of each other in case of crisis or need, in a way to be determined at the discretion of each member. This is how member security is initially bootstrapped.
  • There is a mechanism for the resolution of disputes among members. This could be an arbitration panel or a simple vote. Members who refuse to respond to arbitration requests lose their bond, or some portion of it. This is how dispute resolution is bootstrapped.
  • Members have access to an exclusive communications channel.
  • Members vote on how to spend the organization’s budget in pursuit of the organization’s goals.

The Agora organization is the base layer. Other layers can be built on top of it in the form of projects. Here are some examples that come to mind:

  • Mutual Aid: Members can join a mutual aid society within the organization.
  • Incubator: Members can compete to receive seed capital for entrepreneurial projects that serve Agora’s mission.
  • Education: Members can receive funding to educate people around the world in market anarchist ideas via personal improvement training, entrepreneurship workshops, activism training, and more.
  • Crisis Response: Members can create projects to respond to some crisis in the world, as a means of experimenting with market anarchist ideas, supporting allies, for public relations or some other reason.
Next Steps

Join the Agora Discord. Work starts today.

If you want to see a freed world where nation-states are obsolete, then the Agora organization is a no-brainer.

You can also join the discussions at Reddit, Steemit and YouTube.

However, what this story does not tell you is the Family Connection Center (FCC) does not offer this program to every incarcerated father. There are literally 100’s of fathers and their families who are restricted from participating!

If Taxpayers Can't Challenge Taxes, Who Can?

Adventures in the Free State - Fri, 2018-03-30 01:16 +0000
CACR15, "relating to legal actions. Providing that taxpayers have standing to bring actions against the government," before the NH Senate Rules and Enrolled Bills Committee, 3/29/2018, followed by the Committee's ultimately unconsummated Executive Session.

The only testimony nominally against the bill -- yet they're taking no official position -- comes from the Judicial Branch, which essentially "helpfully" warns (except without the "strike me down first" part)...



No one takes them seriously, at least.

So I ask again, if voting-eligible taxpayers, in government's self-written, very self-serving rulebook, may not hold their own servant government's spending accountable, who will? If taxpayers don't have "standing," don't "have skin in the game" -- by definition -- who the hell does...?

Look for this coming soon to a ballot near you. Tell your Senator you expect no less.

Your Right To Live Free

Adventures in the Free State - Fri, 2018-03-30 00:25 +0000
Close your eyes and take a deep sniff of this. Give it a swirl. Fill your olfactory. Its nose tells you this is well aged. Hints of liberty and expressly limited servant government. Peer through it in the strong light of day and examine its clarity. And plenty of legs, this. Now take a sip. Let it roll around on your palate. Full-bodied, to be sure. History in a glass. Solemn sincerity with just a touch of insouciance. And a rebellious finish. This belongs in any respectable Constitutional cellar. Contemplate the possibilities.

This is CACR16, "Relating to privacy. Providing that an individual's right to live free of governmental intrusion is natural, essential, and inherent." Fundamental, even, in a free society. Having cleared the NH House (a little surprisingly, really -- more on that anon), today before the Senate Rules and Enrolled Bills Committee, 3/29/2018.

It should be noted -- and the ever-bewildering Rep Horrigan should appreciate -- that he voluntarily contractually consented (and if it's not in there, then sue) to his Facebook dossier. And it is not -- ever -- government's responsibility nor prerogative to protect him from what he or it consider to be his own bad choices.

And I just gotta say again, although I've agreed with the League of Women Voters' analysis of the bill since I first became aware of it, while the potential implications concern them, I absolutely revel in the possibilities...

Look for it coming soon to a ballot near you. Tell your Senator you expect no less.

Blockchain in the Energy Sector: Can Government Be Educated?
State House presentation on blockchain in the energy sector

Tuesday, March 27 at 1 PM - 2:30 PM
Science, Technology & Energy Committee, LOB Room 304

Should it need to be in a free society, in a market economy?

The high cost of energy in NH is a statewide issue that negatively effects the business climate and economy. Our regional energy grid is arcane and centralized, being governed by ISO New England in Massachusetts. This presentation will explore the potential to transform the grid into one in which many more participants become consumers, storage providers, and producers of energy, with accounts settled using blockchain technology in a more decentralized fashion.

The presentation will be for the benefit of the committee but the public is welcome to attend.

Presenters will be:
Sandra Ro of Global Blockchain Business Council
Dr. Lee Brenner
 of Global Blockchain Business Council 
Daniel Heller, CFO of BitLumens, Switzerland
James Eggleston of PowerLedger, Australia

Intro by House Science, Technology and Energy Committee chair, Dick Barry.

(Originally Scheduled Presenters had been:
Sandra Ro of Global Blockchain Business Council
Michael Casey of MIT Media Lab, author of The Truth Machine
James Eggleston of PowerLedger, Australia
Veronica Garcia of BitLumens, Switzerland)

And, too, explore The Math Behind Bitcoin with Dr. Darren Tapp.

Sasha’s question about ethics and animals:

“I have a philosophical anarchist question. In an anarchist society, how do you address animal cruelty? If my neighbor abuses his dog, what should be done about it? On one hand, the animal is his property, interfering with how he interacts with his property would violate the NAP. But on the other hand, this particular piece of property feels pains, it’s alive and aware.

“If you think there’s something you could/should be done about it, I have another question. My neighbor on the other side bought an elephant but she keeps it in a cage. She feeds it’s and gives it water, but to keep that kind of animal in those conditions is very cruel. Where is the line? How do you reconcile animal cruelty in An-cap society?”

Radical Anarchist Gay Sex Talk | FLAMING FREEDOM

Introducing SEV! The crypto-anarchist entrepreneur. Sev, Remington, and Derrick talked about being the product of social signals and following the path of least resistance — struggling to be true to ourselves and what that means in the context of masculinity. How is YOUR behavior affected by what you were told is–or isn’t–acceptable? Sev is watching Narcos but says Rubicon is a super-good show for libertarian types who question the people who call themselves the government. We talk about gay muslims and the origin of the word “radical” — which led to our discovery of the Radical Fairies global gay anarchist environmentalist movement. Yes, it’s really a thing.
