Description

I’m always impressed and fascinated by comedians. It’s a tough gig. Jeremy McLellan is a comedian in Charleston, SC who never stops writing material. In addition to performing several times a week he is constantly sharing bits and jokes (there is a difference) on Facebook. He’s also running for mayor of Charleston on a popular platform of issues like the need to re-institute prohibition and seal off Charleston’s borders to protect the inhabitants from neighboring cities.

  • So I’ve been around Liberty.me for about a day now. The difference here from facebook is staggering. Really just amazingly different. Facebook always has negative posts, with only a few exceptions. I have to dig through my news feed (which I always need to manually reset to “newest stories”) in order to find something uplifting. Usually, it’s RT bitching about something in America or Occupy Canada bitching about Stephen Harper or one of my friends bitching about what’s happening in their lives. There’s really just a lot of bitching on facebook. Not so on Liberty.me. Unlike facebook, I don’t have to be friends with someone to read what they have to say. This is not a consumer culture here where I am constantly bombarded by advertising I don’t care about. That’s why I’m willing to dig out 14 dollars a month- I would much rather pay up front for a site than let the advertisers threaten to take away revenue if they don’t like what’s going on. Did I mention the big chat rooms? You can chat with anybody at any time. Not so with facebook, where you have to go out of your way to join a group in order to chat with everyone at once. Even then, the members of the group might not be online all at once. With liberty.me, you can talk to anyone on the site at any time. It really is quite brilliant. Also, the best part: everyone is so nice here. I have yet to meet a person who automatically disagrees with something I said just because I posted it in a public forum. That seems to be the way of it on facebook. As soon as I post a contrary opinion, people come out of the woodwork to smash it all down. I sometimes wonder whether there aren’t government agents trolling about facebook looking to derail conversations from going a certain way. I’ve heard about such things happening on open forums. So I guess, if I had to summarize, I’m really happy this place is here. The only reason I still have my facebook account is to keep in touch with my friends in different areas of the world. If they all came here, I would just close it and leave the NSA data mining behind.

  • One of the more challenging issues Libertarians contend with is the philosophical support for open borders. How open should they be given the potential for importing violent jihadists?

  • I have been paying attention to the craziness going on over on YouTube and I think it would be a good idea for all of us to post links to alternate social media sites. Sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are starting to try to shut down a lot of people so I think it is a good idea to start finding backups at the very least. I will list the few I am aware of I will add I have not yet used any of these… https://www.full30.com/ this is a firearms based site and it has come up a few times in conversation on other sites as the back up location for most of the major firearms content producers should YouTube and Facebook start shutting them out. https://www.minds.com/ this has been recommended by multiple YouTubers as a back up site should things get to bad. My understanding is it is still in beta however. If anyone is wondering what YouTubers they are Black Pigeon Speaks and Computing Forever but my understanding is a LOT of YouTubers have already moved there. https://becandid.com/ This one was mentioned by Black Pigeon Speaks and I think it is for mobile only but I am simply putting everything I am aware of on this list. If you are aware of any other sites please add to this list. Also goes without saying liberty.me

  • I wanted to bring to this community’s attention the recent documentary “Can We Take a Joke?”, directed by Ted Balaker, one of the founders of Reason TV.  Through the lens of stand-up comedy, it explores how outrage culture and political correctness are eroding the space for free and outrageous expression. I was honored to compose the score for this documentary along with my writing partner Ryan Rapsys.  (please check out our new website www.MusicForLiberty.com) The film premiered at Doc NYC in November and I’m sure it will be available for viewing in the near future. I’ll make sure to post when it becomes available for public consumption.

  • Does anyone know the source of this quote, as in the original writing or speech?  It is most widely attributed to Acton, but some attribute it to Bastiat, but never give its source. “When goods cannot cross borders, armies will.” – Lord John Dalberg-Acton, or Bastiat or neither
