Calling for Anti-Statist, Anti-Authoritarian Radical Alliances 2

On Sunday October 11th Derrick Broze spoke at Libertyfest in NYC about the history of the word Libertarian, the history of alliances between radicals on the left and right, a highlight of the work of Karl Hess and Samuel Konkin III, and the need for less ego and dogma in the interest of building new alliances between radicals across the political spectrum.

Radical means taking a direct action approach to your activism. By using Agorist methods of building counter-institutions to the state in the areas of economics, media, education, and others we can create a competing infrastructure that could use a variety of mutual aid strategies to create interlocking communities that voluntarily associate, and trade. We encourage tax resistance, and using black and gray markets to make your money outside of the state’s central economic system. We also encourage the spreading of propaganda against the state whenever and where ever possible. Creating affinity groups, or freedom cells is an incredibly necessary way to build solutions on a local level.

Libertarianism is a political and philosophical position that values liberty, specifically individual liberty, as of utmost importance in our lives. The historical usage of the term began with Anarchists of the 19th, and 20th centuries. Libertarian has always meant anti-authoritarian, and individual. Beyond that, a Libertarian can support whatever economic system they choose as long as it does not result in Authoritarianism, Statism, or the trampling of individual rights.

Alliances are a union or association formed for mutual benefit, especially between countries or organizations, or a relationship based on an affinity in interests, nature, or qualities. It is wise for radicals that are anti-state, and anti-authoritarian on all sides of the spectrum to focus on organizing together for common ground issues and putting aside dogma to build a network that can support communities without the state.

From Syndicalists to Individualists, Mutualists and Agorists, Voluntaryists and Market Anarchists, Panarchists and Anarchists without Adjectives, and other self-identified radicals – this talk is aimed at those who are against Authoritarianism, Statism, and Oppression in all forms. This talk is aimed at those who recognize the power of the Individual and seek to work together as a whole.

We will work with others regardless of their preferred economic systems. As long as individuals are capable of forming alliances without using force on one another they should seek to form temporary alliances around common ground issues or immediate threats. It is also important to remember we do not need to sell out our own individual principles in the interest of these alliances.

Extremism Without Apologies: Augustus Sol Invictus 2020? 1

Is this guy the ideal candidate for the Grey Tribe and the Pan-Secessiionist Meta-Party?

He certainly has the right attitude.

His efforts thus far in the Libertarian Party are consistent with the ARV-ATS objective of having more militant leaders gain positions of influence in dissident organizations and intermediary institutions, and pushing out the more “moderate” (wimpy) leadership.

His program is a generic libertarianism that is broad enough to include a wide range of dissidents (i.e. the ones mentioned in the ARV-ATS “core documents”). Keep an eye on this fellow and see what we can learn in the process.

Imagine if we had hundreds or thousands of folks like this applying the ARV-ATS philosophy in many different organizations and locations.

On Building Revolutionary Cadre in North America 1

This was originally posted on the “Points to Consider” discussion thread, but the comments are important enough that I’m making them into a feature post. Take notes, readers.

By Julius Ebola

One of the basic aspects of real cadre is a major personal commitment to a movement. Unfortunately, fringe movements in the United States seem to have only two polarities of commitment: either a vague subcultural milieu or a mind control cult.

You see this in both new religions and the new left, and even in things like UFOlogy. Something about our national character seems to make any position between these two points an unstable balance that almost always devolves into one or the other.

This is reflected in protest ghetto left by the two dominant organizational models: the Greenpeace model, and the fanatical pretend revolutionary “party”. Both of these models are children of the sixties, with Greenpeace and the Revolutionary Communist Party as poster children of the opposite polarities.

I suspect that for an American panarchist movement the internal conflict that would parallel the one between dissidence and totalitarianism in the Communist party will be between recreational political consumerism or multi-level marketing on one hand, and mass suicide mind control cults on the other.

Crypto Convos Weekend Edition with Mike Kimberl of Sean’s Outpost Reply

I do a weekly show titled Crypto Convos where I interview various members of the bitcoin counter-economy and every now and then I’ll do a weekend edition. Mike Kimberl is a good friend and homeless rights activist who works alongside Food Not Bombs and the bitcoin-fueled homeless outreach Sean’s Outpost. He works tirelessly feeding hundreds of people a week and managing Satoshi Forest, a nine acre homeless campground, which is facing a battle with Escambia County over the right to allow homeless people to reside on private property.

I have interviewed Mike a few times before, and this interview takes a somber look into the problem of homelessness. We also explore how bitcoin can help the most unfortunate and the success Sean’s Outpost has had with bitcoin donations and helping people get off the streets.

Here’s the full interview:
