  • Where is the best place to which to emigrate? OF all the places I’ve visited, I would put Australia number one. It is freer than the US, the culture and people are amazing, the technology is excellent, and it seems like the perfect happy place for me to live and work. I see no real downside at all. I know the government is terrible but so it is everywhere in the world. Second choice might be Costa Rica.

  • “The Jews of Russia who worked for the destruction of monarchy found themselves finally in the grips of a brutal religious persecution which hit them harder than the Christians.  Their most brilliant exponents among the Communists were exiled, slaughtered, or assassinated in exile.  The fate of Trotzki [sic] is symbolic for Russian Jewry.” – Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, aka Francis Stewart Campbell, Menace of the Herd or Procrustes at Large

  • Regarding this video from @akokesh: LiveLeak.com – The Restraint of Muslims (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE) | Adam Kokesh I created a LL account for the first time to get involved in the discussions over there. Pretty interesting responses. Everyone there is assuming Adam is a Muslim or a Jew, or claiming he “forgot” 9/11 (when he referenced it in the video), or calling it “bullshit” without substantiation. I’m interested as to the Lme userbase’s response. Please watch the whole thing before commenting.

  • I recently ran across a document published by the United States Institute of Peace (which I take to be a CIA front — here’s the wiki). It’s called, “Non-Violent Struggle: 50 Crucial Points,” and it appears to be targeted at young people abroad who are unhappy with the governments they live under. (I wonder how much this document has been used in Egypt, Syria or Ukraine?) But my question is, is there anything good that libertarians could learn from this? Could the tactics be used not just to cause unrest or vote in different rulers, but perhaps in thwarting the advances of government or spreading the ideas of liberty to a broader audience? Specifically, is there value in treating political activism as a project, or adopting Sharp’s methods of nonviolent action, or of using the model of multi-level marketing to expand the network? What are your thoughts on this kind of activism?
