  • I had no idea that libertarianism was gaining so much traction in Brazil. I had a passing familiarity a while back about Mises circles popping up down there but I am absolutely impressed with the political and public gains they are making. Here’s a video from reason tv summarizing what is happening: https://youtu.be/eaRyvgbHCV4 . I remember meeting a young and motivated Brazilian man at the 2015 Liberty Forum in Manchester that just made the move that month unfortunately I cannot remember his name. Bruno perhaps? Are there any thought ambassadors traveling between the US and Brazil (either physically or virtually) that are assisting with the movement? I am curious if any Brazilians could do their own Free State movement to a small locality within their country to make incremental changes in local policy. I suppose if this became more widespread we’d see a loose global shift of locally concentrated efforts; almost like a middle-out thing.
