Description

In 2015 there were 42.2 million Americans living in food insecure households…that’s a nice way of saying that they didn’t know where their next meal would come from. That’s 13% of all households*

At the same time a new study from the USDA: (Released in February 2014) reported that “in the United States, 31 percent—or 133 billion pounds—of the 430 billion pounds of the available food supply at the retail and consumer levels in 2010 went uneaten**

Houston, we have a problem. Wouldn’t it seem that if all of this food already exists, but is just thrown away, that it should be simple to give it to the people who need it the most? It’s pretty obvious that government solutions aren’t working and waste is much less prominent in the Free Market.

Enter Jason King’s Unsung.org (503c non-profit)

Jason got started feeding the hungry in 2013 within the Bitcoin community. All of a sudden a lot of people had some serious gains in the new crypto-currency and the Bitcoin community is VERY GENEROUS. Jason decided to raise money (in Bitcoin) to follow through on his mission to feed the hungry.

I previously interviewed Jason on Episode #21 back in February 2016. At the time he had feed only a couple hundred people but the concept was working. Fast-forward to Oct 2016 and he’s already feed >10,000 and created an iPhone app to help communities self-organize and bridge the gap between food waste and hungry people. Simple but genius.

  • The “Tax Honesty” movement has demonstrated a few things to a lot of people.  To cover a lot with a few words, I’ll put it this way:  The IRS breaks its own rules in order to rob us through deceit. Some people (Irwin Schiff, for example) have suffered because they attempted to protect themselves from the rule-breakers.  There is now a theory popular among liberty-minded people that the government is too corrupt and powerful for anyone to succeed in an effort like Irwin Schiff’s.  There is also some good evidence showing this theory to be wrong.  It’s available at Peter Hendrickson’s website, losthorizons.com. I think that a lot of bureaucrats feel and believe that they are helping society.  This leaves them open to consider fixing situations in which their bureaucracy is breaking its own rules.  And let’s face it, there are some rules that can actually help liberty.  Perhaps the loads of evidence that Hendrickson has on his site can be explained by the presence of such “good-hearted” individuals in the bowels of the IRS. In any case, if you can, please entertain the possibility that the US Income Tax is not being administered honestly.  Consider that maybe, just maybe, in the gargantuan tangle of words called “Title 26,” the legal meaning of the law as it applies to most people is not coercive at all.  Maybe, if it were properly applied, the government would be a nuisance like neighbors who let their dogs poop on your lawn, instead of a nuisance like cancer in your lungs.  It could be true.  I think it is true, and I think that failing to follow all the twists and turns that Hendrickson uncovered to see for yourself that it is true kind of justifies you still being enslaved to a government that steals from you in order to cause havoc all over the planet in a massive deception that justifies its existence. If we want to honor the goodness in all people, including those who have been tricked into serving evil, we can do so by understanding the rules they think they should be following, and using them to protect ourselves from enslavement.

  • Liberty in North Korea: Bitcoin.com, /r/GoldAndBlack Team Up for Worthy Cause People Over Politics North Korean refugees need help. Reddit /r/BTC users were alerted to a new crowdfunding campaign. With various ways offered to spend bitcoin, rarely is there a chance to literally rescue hostages. Real life. Human hostages. Liberty in North Korea (”Link”) works directly with refugees, and was chosen by a sister Reddit community, /r/GoldAndBlack, for that very reason. “It costs 3,000 dollars to get them across that 3,000 miles. If we all can raise 3,000 dollars, we can rescue one refugee,” the post claimed, urging readers to understand North Koreans who take the unbelievable risk are by no means safe in China.

  • Does this list have anything else that could be added to it? The goal is to have a checklist that could be used to check any article on the topic. I would guess most people on this site are aware that arbitrarily raising the cost of labor isn’t the best way to help workers.
