  • All Libertarians, answer the questions and be not afraid. What are some of the most common services provided by government that can be replaced by privatization? What is your proposal for implementing these services? Suggested topics: Security, Monetary supply, and of course Roads; every libertarian’s favorite subject.

  • Mr Robot is on its third season. It is as weird, compelling and contemporary as seasons one and two were. It touches on a lot of libertarian/anarchist themes but appears to dislike capitalism as government control. On the other hand, it could be an attack on crony capitalism and not genuine free market voluntarily exchange. Even if its creator isn’t a signed up libertarian it certainly helps to popularise some important libertarian views about our economy and the way government works.

  • Dear Liberty.me’ers: I thought I’d reach out and see if any of you would be interested in a project I’ve been working on. I have set up a way to make a gold account interface with the modern electronic banking system. You get all of the convenience of modern banking, without the inherent, umm…. risks, difficulties, dare I say, fraudulence? You keep your savings in gold, and you pay everyone else in dollars. And that’s always a good principle: keep your assets in a sound currency, and your liabilities in an unsound one. The gold is vaulted in Switzerland. So instead of going through lots of rigamarole selling gold, going to a dealer, paying a big percentage, etc., you can just *spend your gold*! Instantly! My company is Midas. I’ve set up a bare-bones placeholder site at: http://Midas.gold Here’s a rough informational brochure I made: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mdz6ev6pqua61lw/Midas%2Belectronic%2Bbrochure.pdf?dl=0 Let me know if you would be interested in getting such a card.  I am just looking for a few beta-testers.
