Is the rat committing violence by informing the gang that will kill you of your business? Technically I think the answer is no, but effectively the answer is yes.

Of course. And let's look at definition of the NAP.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-aggression_principle

Quote
Aggression, for the purposes of NAP, is defined as the initiation or threatening of violence against a person or legitimately owned property of another. Specifically, any unsolicited actions of others that physically affect an individualís property or person, no matter if the result of those actions is damaging, beneficial, or neutral to the owner, are considered violent or aggressive when they are against the owner's free will and interfere with his right to self-determination and the principle of self-ownership.

Supporters of the NAP often appeal to it in order to explain the immorality of theft, vandalism, assault, and fraud. In contrast to nonviolence, the non-aggression principle does not preclude violence used in self-defense or defense of others.

Or

Quote
No one may threaten or commit violence ('aggress') against another man's person or property. Violence may be employed only against the man who commits such violence; that is, only defensively against the aggressive violence of another. In short, no violence may be employed against a nonaggressor. Here is the fundamental rule from which can be deduced the entire corpus of libertarian theory.
Murray Rothbard, 1963

If I remember this right, in libertarian fiction (Alongside Night), Revolutionary Agorist Cadre used such tactics against state oppression of their economic activity.

Silk Road was the most similar organization that existed in real life.

It's hard to say what I would or wouldn't do in certain situations. But I definitely don't like the idea of killing someone to protect secrets. That's a little too reminiscent of the state.

What if there is voluntary, private contract that specifies death as penalty for confidentiality breach ?


If you voluntary agree that you should die if you tell somebody something*, and then you indeed do this; then your death is voluntary. It's almost a form of euthanasia.

I apologize for my bad English, but I hope that my opinion is understandable Wink


* And in revolutionary organizations informal contracts such as these are obvious !

FSP have, as all purely political projects (contrary to business projects), bad financial incentives.

Future seasteads probably will make profit, and FSP ? It's purely ideological project which needs your money, time and life; not offering you considerable ROI (return of investment) for these things.

I'm very much in favor of ideological activism, but this activism should be profitable. Only then it will have chances in succeeding. Bitcoin is profitable and ideologically pure at the same time, for example; thus ideal. Blueseed have similar potential.

FSP ? Only ideology, no profits whatsoever...

I think that seasteading is more realistic.

blueseed.co have interesting business model, and there is actual possibility that their ideas will become real in the next year.

I wasn't sure if he was trolling at first, because "soylent" is the name of a wafer made out of human flesh and fed to the overpopulated masses in the seminal 1973 sci-fi film Soylent Green, but then I read the extensive post on Rob's blog about how he came to make the stuff and started to believe him. Soylent contains all of the nutritive components of a balanced diet, but with just a third of the calories and none of the toxins or cancer-causing stuff you'd usually find waiting to kill you in your lunch. Despite the fact it looks a bit like vomit, Soylent supposedly has the potential to change the entire world's relationship with food, so I spoke to Rob to find out how.

(...)

You know in the film Soylent Green, Soylent Green is made of people, right?
Actually, in the original book Make Room! Make Room! Soylent is made of soya and lentil. The movie changed many aspects of the book, though it's still one of my favourite movies. My Soylent is human-free.

Interesting...

What @caps thinks about these things ?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Liberty

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberum_veto

Of course, this system was horribly flawed - only 10% of the population had rights.
And it was destroyed by foreign meddling.

Nevertheless, it's very interesting part of history.

Well, I was wrong when I was talking about bubble...

I think in about 7 years each Bitcoin will be worth about $3 million of TODAY'S purchasing power

Even if this is true in this (7-years) perspective, short-term bubbles are certainly possible...

Few words are similar, but I don't understand Russian Tongue

Polish and Czech are more similar, I can understand some sentences without any learning.

I don't think anyone denies your existence- it's more that we don't have verification of it very often.

This is offtopic, but...

1 where do I buy the coins

I suggest Mt Gox, very reputable exchange.
https://mtgox.com/

But I have serious doubts that you should buy them today. Vide my last post on this matter

BTC is great, but this is probably speculative bubble. Too high prices too soon, and I think that there will be correction (like in the last year, maybe not that extreme, but nevertheless).

I believe in BTC in the long run, but I selled half of my BTC last day; and I plan to buy them again with healthy profit, because prices will probably fall 50-70%.


PS. I'm not native speaker in english, so sorry for any mistakes ; ) Contrary to uneducated opinions, libertarians and anarcho-capitalists exist in Europe, even in countries like Poland ; )
