The Internet Has Been Conquered: Get Busy With the Next Steps

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013   Submitted by Paul Rosenberg

internet_spyingIf you’re reading The Daily Anarchist, you understand the nature of rulership and you probably understand that a free, open Internet is the state’s enemy. In the end, either the state controls all Internet traffic or the Internet undermines rulership and the state withers away.


Warrior Culture and Women in Ranger School

Monday, January 28th, 2013   Submitted by Roman Skaskiw

rangersI dream about the military almost every other night, about Afghanistan more often than Iraq, sometimes about training. The dreams are usually tense, but not disturbing. I think my training prepared me for combat. Amazingly, the most troubling dream involves my returning to Ranger School. A bureaucratic error requires me to go again. It’s recurred more times than I can count.


LRC Donation Drive Makes Big Announcement

Friday, December 28th, 2012   Submitted by Seth King

LRC seems to be having a donation drive right now. I hadn’t planned on given them any money until I found out that they are now accepting Bitcoin donations! This is huge news, because for too long a large number of libertarians have balked at Bitcoins. It’s only a matter of time before LRC starts pumping out pro-Bitcoin articles and gets the rest of the libertarian crowd on board. This is a major victory! Please show your support by donating some Bitcoin today, even if it’s a small amount.

RT Interviews Ian Freeman

Saturday, November 10th, 2012   Submitted by Seth King

Russia Today may not be a 100% media fount for anarcho-capitalism, but they sure do have a lot of voluntaryists on their shows. Case in point, the Free State Project‘s very own Ian Freeman exposes the state’s hypocrisy and sneaks in a quick shout out for the going’s on in New Hampshire. Enjoy!

Gambling With Bitcoins

Thursday, November 8th, 2012   Submitted by Seth King

I have a gambling success story I would like to share with all of you. It highlights another strength of Bitcoin that may be overlooked by many skeptics.

A little over one year ago a Bitcoin gambling website came out called BetsofBitcoin that allows users to engage in a prediction market much like the famous Intrade. In November of last year somebody created a prediction over whether or not Barack Obama would be re-elected President. Well, this just happened to be something I had been confident about since 2008. Barack Obama would be a two-term President.


Ernest Hancock Interviews Daily Anarchists

Friday, November 2nd, 2012   Submitted by Seth King

You’ll note I used the plural form of “anarchist” in the title. That’s because both I and Daily Anarchist author Davi Barker were guests on the radio show Declare Your Independence today. It’s a three hour show. Davi Barker was in the first hour and I came on in the third hour. The episode can be listened to here.

I want to thank Ernie for having us both on. It was a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Targeting Anarchists

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012   Submitted by Seth King

There has been quite a stir recently in anarchist circles on facebook regarding the imprisonment of three individuals from the Pacific northwest for refusing to cooperate with the feds. Chances are these three individuals are of the anarcho-syndicalist persuasion, but I think they’re handling themselves perfectly. Refuse to even talk to the grand jury, even if you are completely innocent. Exercise your right to remain silent under all conditions and take your lumps. Then make an example out of the government for their criminal behavior. I was considering writing a full-length article on this story, but I’m happy to see that RT has done all the legwork for me. This video just came out today. Also, after this video Capital Account with Lauren Lyster interviewed anarcho-capitalist Joel Bowman of The Daily Reckoning. The topic of anarcho-capitalism was discussed for more than 10 minutes. I’d say we’re making progress! Enjoy this video and consider sharing it on youtube!

Don’t Even Think About 2016

Tonight Ron Paul gave his much awaited interview with Jay Leno. It was an appearance that came with anticipation of a big announcement. There was a lot of speculation amongst Paul supporters. Would he run for president as an independent? Would he endorse Gary Johnson?


The Sikh Temple Shooting and the Siblinghood of all Humanity

Monday, August 13th, 2012   Submitted by Davi Barker

After all the feedback on my last article “Auditing Shooting Rampage Statistics” I said that I would record all the corrections in my data set and publish an updated statistic if there was another shooting and the subject became timely again. I did not expect that it would be the next day. So, rather than repeating the statistical analysis from last week, I want to talk about something a little bit different.

I want to personally thank everyone who commented on the article. Not being a gun enthusiast myself, I learned alot about firearms from you all. I’ll especially be careful about the incorrect use of the term “assault rifle” to describe semi-automatic weapons. Even those who were critical of my research provided valuable insights that I will incorporate into any future analysis of the data. The most difficult criticism to resolve is that we only have figures for successful civilian resistance. We don’t have figures for unsuccessful civilian resistance. Sadly, this is exactly the situation in this most recent rampage shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek Wisconsin.
