  • Would any Aussies like to weigh-in on this? I realize posting a story like this in the forums is like throwing chum to ravenous sharks. Let the feast begin!

  • History shows that control of the individual is achieved through the factors of production: labor, land, capital control through labor = slavery control through land = feudalism control through capital = the debt system Government is not necessary to control individuals through the factors of production. It is only necessary to own the factor of production. A study of history reveals multiple examples of this control. Are there any examples when this control of the individual through the factors of production has not existed?

  • Hello – this is troi+ founder of or ‘the Eris Episodes’, which one might call a decentralized ‘shark tank’ for voluntaryist entrepreneurs. Eris, is the Greek goddess of chaos, who, it has been written, pitched the ‘golden apple of discord’, inscribed “kallisti” or “to the fairest”, upon a feast of the gods, thus sparking a vanity-fueled dispute among Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, that eventually led to the Trojan War. Episode (plural episodes) An incident or action standing out by itself, but more or less connected with a complete series of events. An installment of a drama told in parts, as in a TV series. the Eris Episodes…. As many inhabitants of know, the Eris Society, founded by Doug Casey in 1981, was a loose association of free-thinkers who met once per year in Aspen, Colorado, to share original and discordant ideas. hopes to pick up where Casey and his fellow Erisians left off in 2007, with two big differences. The first and obvious difference is that it’s 2015 and we have a lot better communication and collaboration technology now, thus, can be participated in without getting on an airplane. The second difference is methodological. Where the original Eris Society was more about the discussion of libertarian ideas in their abstract, (note that I only attended Eris 2000 so I am not an authority on this point)… these new ‘eris episodes’ will be all about entrepreneurs designing, building, and launching the voluntaryist enterprises that might engineer us freedom in reality. I can think of several projects right now that have founders which would make great ‘apple tossers’ and I am sure you can too. If you, or someone you know, have a voluntaryist enterprise that you think would benefit from being pitched on then you should contact me. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of how I think that might opperate with decentralized awesomeness… let me just say a few words about branding. I started off working on this idea about a month ago within the NXT crypto community, and called it (which was a fitting name for the concept). However, I now feel that a broader reaching brand is needed to include both goldbugs and bitslugs too, as well as include the elusive anarcho-capitalist often found here on Before tentatively deciding on this morning, I wrote out several brands (domains) which may or may not be good fits for the idea of “a ‘shark tank’ for voluntaryist entrepreneurs”. Here are the runners up… please inform me if you like one more than or if you have a better name! Thanks. (got it) (got it) (got it) (got it) (just joking) (got it) in a nutshell; a platform for voluntaryist entrepreneurs to pitch enterprises that will strike a note of discord with authoritarian infrastructure, while at the same time, twang harmoniously with the jug band of individual liberty.   Participants are free to, (1) watch and post questions to the ‘apple tosser’, (2) invest capital, code, or other creative skills in exchange for product, equity, or “thanks!”, (3) volunteer to produce an Eris Episode, especially if they have a profit motive in doing so, (4) volunteer to pitch their own voluntaryist enterprise, and (5) volunteer to play the role of one of the Greek gods (our version of ‘shark’ or ‘dragon’), and question, negotiate, invest, or strike a mortal with a lightning bolt. Second half of this post is forthcoming, tonight before the live event, ‘Free Spirits’ at 10 pm eastern here on ~ cheers
