I know I'm going to get rotten fruit thrown at me for saying this, but I've been listening to the Alex Jones radio broadcast every day.

Yes, he's still a statist. Yes, he still advocates statist things. But he is often the first to break stories that only later become national news headlines.

And I do agree with much of his analysis. His analysis on this whole Ferguson thing is that it's largely staged from both sides. Yes, most people are useful idiots, but there are provocateurs on both sides, including law enforcement and the rioters.

That whole thing is a total mess and I really view it as bad guy vs. bad guy. There are no libertarians or anarchists in Ferguson. If there were, they'd be absolutely nuts for staying there.

Imagine, for a moment, that you really are a libertarian anarchist living in Ferguson. Imagine YOU were living in Ferguson, right now. What would YOU be doing?

Do you know what I would be doing? I wouldn't be attacking police stations, burning down Kwik-e-marts, and I wouldn't even be protesting. I'd probably be going about my daily business, working, making money, trying to spread the message about Bitcoin and voluntaryism, etc. and trying to avoid getting caught up the fight between two bad guys. Oh, and I'd be planning my move to NEW HAMPSHIRE ASAP.

Seriously. I don't understand why more anarcho-capitalists are not moving to New Hampshire RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

This Ferguson thing is NOT an isolated incident. When the dollar collapses and the shit hits the fan and martial law is declared because every major city is rioting and all of the people stop getting their welfare checks do you really want to be the lone voluntaryist living in your city?

I think a lot of people probably think that their area won't riot because it's mostly white people, and traditionally white people don't loot and burn down Kwik-e-marts. But there are a TON of white people that are depending on welfare checks. And if they start going hungry, watch out. It's not about race. It's about philosophy and morals, and the truth is that 99.99% of white people have their heads firmly up their asses just like every other race. And they believe in theft and socialism and such.

I'll tell you, I don't know how fellow anarchists can handle living in a city where they don't know any other anarchists activists and are the only voice of reason in a hundred mile radius. It doesn't matter how smart you are or how you could see the writing on the wall 10 years before everybody else. If you don't take ACTION then you'll likely fair no better than the rest. /rant

If you lived in Ferguson you'd be to poor to move or a state functionary.

Nobody is "too poor to move."  The people who attempt to leave Haiti towards Florida on rubber tubes are poorer than the people in Ferguson, but they still manage to move.  Many of the ancestors of the people who live in Ferguson were poorer than the people who live there now, yet they still managed to move.

I personally use my financial situation as an excuse why I won't move to NH for example.  However, I could literally just start walking toward NH tomorrow with nothing and chances are good that I will arrive there. Nobody is "too poor to move."

Why the insults?

He is just angry because he has recently realized he advocates for a state and murder.


To ass 7, the uprising has been violent as well.  I see no one to cheer in such a case.  Your desire for a violent uprising doesn't go over well with many people.  Better examples of community reactions have been discussed.  Get over yourself.

Because systems built on oppression and violence will just let you over throw them.

Yet you advocate violence and oppression.  Good thinking.
