    Bitcoin p2p lending experience?

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with p2p lending with bitcoins? I can see there seems to be a bunch of cryptocurrency p2p lending sites. Does anybody have any experience with them? I’ve already mined some bitcoins and was thinking it might be interesting to capture a yield on them. Alternatively, I was thinking if the p2p bitcoin is crap and it’s too risky not to get paid back, to take the other side of the trade: borrow (maybe to buy some more mining equipment) and then default on the loan…

    P2P statists?

    How are so many that are advocate so powerfully for internet freedom, and P2P systems. But when it comes down to other aspects are very state (progressive) driven ideologically. Mostly along the taxation, welfare systems, state dominion over property rights beyond digital and austerity measures. I am not devoid from abandonment of the state entirely either (trying hard too) but it seems that some articles of information outside of liberty.me circles are very bipolar on the points. I personally have concerns how certain powers given to government would be better all around as private. I don’t have that much faith in human condition yet. Back on point. They want decentralized p2p systems yet also want a very punitive and welfare modeled state body also. Aren’t these two ideas directly opposed at a root level? They want no government in the matrix but want a very large progressive government in physical expression. As I have tried to learn more and more of the power of P2P, bitcoin, 3D printing, tor etc it makes me see that we are actually encumbered by the simplest expressions of the state in real life. Has state based indoctrination been so well done it is stronger than the anarchist ideas around technologies.

    Who is the most important libertarian writer ever?

    Informal poll: Who is the most important writer in the whole libertarian tradition? Thomas Paine Rose Wilder Lane Murray Rothbard Ayn Rand (I know, I know, she doesn’t want to be on this list, but she is) JRR Tolkien Some other? I’m looking through the table of contents in Jeff Riggenbach’s The Libertarian Tradition and trying figure out who deserves the top spot.

Description

Jeffrey Tucker interviews his old friend and mentor Sheldon Richman about his new book — America’s Counter-Revolution: The Constitution Revisited.

From Jeffrey’s foreword:

This much I can assure the reader: after reading this book, you will never think about the U.S. Constitution and America’s founding the same way again. Sheldon Richman’s revealing and remarkably well-argued narrative will permanently change your outlook.
The Constitution, far from limiting government, was actually designed to bring about a new one that betrayed the ideals of the Declaration of Independence itself. The ratification of the Constitution was a counter-revolution.There is a reason it has done a poor job in protecting freedom: it was never intended to do so.
