In a world where we converting present-day private property into the commons or public goods, while retaining respect for personal property that problem is solved

Look up tragedy of the commons.

Try to suck a breathe out of your duffle-bag when you perhaps get buried under 4 feet of snow. The difference is life or death. And for those that know, this backpack kicks ass! Are there even any skiers here? Telemark, Boarder, anyone?

I live in CO. We have the best mountains in the country! I don't think people who don't ski/board get it, or perhaps they live in crappy ski areas. This backpack is sweet!

This is why I have no Bitcoin. Until I can buy real everyday stuff with them I'm not wasting my "real" money.

You can purchase pizza from Domino's, Pizza Hut, and Papa John's (http://pizzaforcoins.com/). You can purchase Amazon Gift Cards, itunes gift cards, computer equipment, and gold and silver. I've even seen cars for sale for BTC. Nice cars.

Like I was saying.

Unlimited rights.

You have the right to shoot me, and vice versa.

Everyone wins!

Well, unless you're the one getting shot....

Absolutely. People need to get over this "peace" thing. And as far as forcing shit on people like macsnafu said it's not about forcing shit on people it's about not being bullied.

Nonviolence is a value and a way of life. Who are you to force your values onto someone else? That's what the government does.

Free markets with the rule of law are also very peaceful. You don't see the owner of one company hiring a hit squad to take out the owner of his competitor. Only governments and organizations outside the rule of law do that.

I believe I said and I quote "it's not about forcing shit on people it's about not being bullied" but the fact of the matter remains if can't defend it or if you won't defend it it's not yours. Rights are useful constructs but unless you are willing to kill for your rights it really isn't a right it's more of a privilege.

Civil disobedience requires no killing or violence and has been an extremely effective method of solidifying rights. Defense does not mean violence. Also, rights are are inalienable. I think you need to look up the difference between rights and privileges.

The issue is this:

There aren't that many voluntaryists. Organizing them all is difficult. If we all stood up against the state in some massive "uprising," whatever that may be, we would all end up in prison, or worse. I think we are more useful out of prison, than in.

Until we reach critical mass, we must take baby steps toward a voluntary society. Baby steps include: educating people of the importance of personal responsibility, raising funds, and breaking small pieces of legislation every day  Tongue.

I think the first step is concentrating a large group of voluntaryists in one place, and then start practicing what we preach. Once there is a large enough group in one place that is well organized we can start doing civil disobedience on a large enough scale. That will receive "national" attention, and the idea that you own your own body and a voluntary society works will spread much more quickly. The FSP has a good start on this, however it is not there yet.

It's a choice and way of life. I think some people are cut out for it and others are not.

My businesses have only had one or two suppliers. But I'm also not a successful business man so...

I don't think that's true. I don't know what your businesses are, but I'll give you an example of our business.

Most gold used today is gold that has already been mined over the last 4,000 years of gold mining. There are thousands of companies that recycle and refine gold. There are also thousands of companies that mine precious metals around the world. Then mints buy the refined precious metals and produce coins, rounds, bars, etc. They sell the final product directly to us in bulk or to large dealers, banks, or dealer networks, who then sell to us in bulk. All of these companies are our suppliers.

We also need paper, shipping supplies, printers, computers, phones to communicate with our customers. Hosting company, servers, web developers, and pens (we go through a lot of pens). Fridge/microwave and bottled water for our employees and anyone who comes by. Just to name a few of the things we buy for daily operations. All of these products are purchased from suppliers.

Is your supplier friendly to the cause. Of freedom?

As with every business we have several thousand suppliers all over the world from the miners, to the refineries, to the mints, to the paper suppliers, etc. Some, such as the AOCS, are.

Questions:

Are these coins purchased from third parties?

Do you smith/cast any of the coins yourselves?

For the metals that are used in these coins, where is the metal mined from?

1) Yes, we are a dealer.

2) As a dealer we do not produce any of the rounds ourselves. As a side note the word "coin" is monopolized by the government. Coins can only be produced by the government (or a mint hired by the government). All other silver/gold products are referred to as rounds or medallions.

3) In SA, USA, RUS, CAN, CHN, other parts of Africa, North America, and Asia.

Silver received. Beauty!

Terrific! I hope everything is up to expectations. If you are on #bitcoin-otc, feel free to rate us (AmagiMetals).

After I switch my operating system to Linux Mint this winter break, I will look into opening a Bitcoin account and begin purchasing goods such as these metals.

Sweet! Let us know if you have any questions.

Someone on Reddit asked us what information we must report about our customers. The only thing we need to report is if you make a cash purchase over $10,000. Then we need to fill out FinCEN form 8300. A cash purchase is defined as cash, money order, or travelers check. Personal check, credit card, bank wire (or BTC), are not considered a "cash" purchase.

"who hold the dangerous view that no one should initiate violence against anyone else"

Dangerous to who? Parasites?
