Description

This is episode 65 of You, Me, and BTC, the planet’s most entertaining Bitcoin podcast!

We’re joined by two very special guests today, Angela Keaton from Antiwar.com and Drew Phillips from Bitcoin Not Bombs.

Angela Keaton: Google Drops Antiwar.com

First up today, Angela Keaton will share her story about Google’s decision to disable AdSense ads on Antiwar.com. Google cited some decade-old, horrific – but honest – photos from Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad as the reason for the decision. In general, we appreciate Google’s endless list of useful services, but the company is certainly not perfect. Ms. Keaton will tell us about her experience and explain why Google’s customer service was lacking.

Drew Phillips: Bitcoin Not Bombs’ Pro-peace #DontExposeEvil Meme Contest

Then later in the show, we’ll chat about Bitcoin Not Bombs’ efforts to combat Google’s behavior. Drew Phillips will share a pro-peace meme contest that was started to bring some of these issues to light. A number of sponsors, including You, Me, and BTC, are offering prizes like Bitcoin and silver to artists who can create the best pro-peace memes. There are currently prizes available for the top 10 entries, so be sure to submit one if you can!

Your hosts are Tim Baker, Daniel Brown, and John Stuart. Enjoy!

Leave a comment and tell us what you think of Antiwar.com’s situation and Bitcoin Not Bombs’ meme contest!!

  • The more I read about the concept of anarchy the more I am attracted to its tenants of voluntarism and non-aggression. That being said, some people are just dicks, and the heavy hand of the state can be very useful in dealing with such individuals. Let’s say a new neighbour moves next door. He buys the property outright and is free to do with it (and on it) as he chooses. Let’s say he chooses to play his music ridiculously loudly at all hours of the night. His music is keeping my kids up and proving to be a nuisance all around. I’ve tried reasoning with him but nothing will dissuade him from blaring his music as loudly as he wants on his property. Currently, I can call the cops and the problem will be solved (one way or another). What recourse would I have against this “noise pollution” in an anarchic society?

  • Hello, My first post here and my fist hour into the site… I’m a Drupal web dev, and can’t avoid notice this site is build on wordpress…behind cludfare….but still a wordpress!! Also using GA, which is not very consequential with the no-big-brother value proposal… Is there any post, video, etc from liberty.me devs showing how was done, or why they have choose these techs? if not, perhaps they are reading this and can comment a little?

  • How do you think a non-aggressionist should think about what is happening in the Ukraine?
