You know your movement is starting to get big when the mainstream media is willing to go to the middle of nowhere to report on your activities. Here is a quality podcast done by NPR that gives a shout out to anarcho-capitalism and the Porcupine Freedom Festival. In contrast to the rabidly anti-libertarian comments left by many of the listeners, I think the podcasters themselves gained a good amount of respect for our movement during their visit. And it would be hard not to. It is quite a unique experience to be surrounded by several hundred down-to-earth, fun, compassionate, intelligent and resolute individuals that shatter all preconceived notions about how society can function. Granted, the podcasters did get some jabs in, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. For starters, people often poke fun of those for whom they have respect. Secondly, the fact that we are being ridiculed at all is better than being ignored, right? You be the judge and tell me what you think. Was this a net positive for our movement or net negative?
