I honestly never thought I would see them sunset the Patriot Act.  Of course, they didn't just let it go either.  Anyone have thoughts on the new thing replacing it?

I wanted to see the videos, but they are not readily visible in the first post anymore.  The quote below has them without the tags.  

I'm watching this right now, very interesting, especially if you're into off the grid living and the whole make/D.I.Y. scene:




I'm sure AgoristTeen1994 has seen the thread years ago now, but for anyone that happens to be reading through this now:


Seth: Another way to put that in terms of the Myers-Briggs-Jung typology stuff in psychology particularly how it relates to what Dr. David. Keirsey has done with that theory....I would say that the "truth seekers" as you put it could be considered to be the "Rationals" as Keiresy called them or the "NT's" as Myers referred to them. I have taken the test numerous times and always score as the same variant of Rational....with the exact same preference strength...and this is on multiple websites not just the same site over and over again. But yeah that is another way to put it...and if that's the case than at MOST only 10% of the population could be considered "truth seekers"


Is there anyone on here that is off the grid?  I don't see why off grid is so commonly associated with subsistence living as in the first posts videos.

The typical episode is pretty clean, to be family friendly.  I still find them entertaining.

Do you realize you will get a staggering number of people that read this and not get it, nor agree with it?  
So, I should give up and curl into a ball?

Did I suggest any such thing?  What is with people taking a simple statement and creating an argument against me based on their own tangent?  

Seriously, WTF?

Perhaps not, but how much starvation can be blamed on banksters demanding payment when the crop fails?

Honestly, AG, I have argued the exact position you hold, continue down the non-aggression path and you will find that I am right.

If you think we advocate the 'banksters' or bailouts, you have completely failed to read anything on this forum.  I would suggest you reconsider your stance against ancap because you have a completely fundamental misunderstanding of capitalism, and anarchy.

Ultimately I feel like personal responsibility is going to be the key for a successful anarchy.

Personal responsibility comes in many forms.  Someone doesn't need to know how to fight fires, be an EMT or carry a weapon to fight crime to be responsible.  If someone chooses to do those things, great.  As you pointed out though, they are not every day needs for every person.  That is why people started to specialize their skills long ago.  It is more efficient to buy goods and services from those that specialize in the skills that make better goods and services, than for example you to try to build your own fire truck to go fight fires with.  The person growing rubber trees in the south pacific is being just as responsible by providing for their needs through their skills, as the firefighter riding the truck with wheels using rubber the person in the south pacific grew.  Expecting those that specialize in fighting fires, or providing medical care, or security to provide their services, in exchange for something of course, is not irresponsible.  

It seems like your concern had a lot to do with the cost of the firefighting, in both equipment and peoples time.  There is no reason why this has to be some oddly unique situation where people volunteer, do it themselves, or burn.  A subscription and/or one time fee for services would make sense.  It could also be covered by insurance companies.  

I heard a news story a few years back of a volunteer fire company allowing a guys house to burn down because he didn't donate to them, even after the guy offered thousands up front for them to put out the fire.  That is just childish behavior on the part of the fire company.  If fire services were in a free market, it would never have happened.

If we sound like freeborn to random people we meet, I understand the resistance.

For starters, they don't keep an IP log, so there is no way for anyone to know what email is actually linked to you.  The email is encrypted from their server to your PC, so it can't be read on the way to you.  You can also easily send encrypted messages out to people on other networks. 

We support sending encrypted communication to non-ProtonMail users via symmetric encryption. When you send an encrypted message to a non-ProtonMail user, they receive a link which loads the encrypted message onto their browser, which they can decrypt using a passphrase that you have shared with them. You can also send unencrypted messages to Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook and others, just like regular email.

The best would be to have both users in the same encrypted system, but it isn't needed. 
10  General Category / General Discussion / Proton Mail on: April 24, 2015, 12:31:27 PM

This is probably the most secure your email can get right now.  It is hosted in Switzerland and completely encrypted.  

This isn't posted to be an ad, but I know a lot of people here value their privacy, and email is one of the worst offenders right now.

I started this one on my own long ago.  It makes for a happier life.

I stopped wanting to talk here because it became less about sharing ideas and more about constantly headbutting with socialists all over the forum.  That isn't fun or productive.

(ENG) The anarchocapitalist park and pay for sit on a bench
(CZ) Anarchokapitalistický park a placeni sezeni na lavičce

In English too.


I am not sure if you are suggesting that in ancap people would actually pay to sit on a park bench or not, but I pity anyone with such a lack of forethought.  It would be like suggesting that wal-mart is going to charge you to park, or walk inside.  There is a difference between a service with a revenue stream, and enabling it. 
15  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Is the Bitcoin Foundation really even needed? on: February 05, 2015, 12:08:38 PM
I don't know much about the foundation.  From a glance it seems like an organization finding ways to monetize something they are interested in.  There is no requirement to interact with them.  It is like the companies that offer their own versions of Linux.  You can just go get a free version of it if you want, or you can get involved with them.  If anything the visibility they create helps everyone.
