Carl Watner, founding member of The Voluntaryist academic journal/newsletter (along with Wendy McElroy and George H. Smith, in 1982) passed away yesterday after a long fight with cancer.
Dr. Walter Williams passed away last night, December 1st, 2020. I’ve mentioned him a plethora of times, along with Dr. Thomas Sowell, as the two springboards that got me into economics, liberty, and ultimately voluntaryism, peaceful parenting, and radical unschooling. Dr. Williams was the first, however, to get me thinking about economics and liberty. He will hold a special place in my heart, and I’m honored to have sat at his feet and learned so much from him. He will be missed. Please take a moment today to watch this telling documentary about him and his work.
Back in April of this year, SLC Corp. made the allegation against me that I have violated their code, specifically the bit about prohibiting short term rentals (Airbnb, HomeAway) in my neck of the woods. Since then, I have defended myself on the grounds that they lack evidence that their code applies to me, giving them jurisdiction.
Whether we agree or not, you want to tell the story of your political or parenting journey, or you just want to discuss a random topic of interest, you are hereby invited to join me on the EVC podcast.
I am very pleased to announce The Homeschooling and Liberty Summit, which begins February 1st, and continues through the end of the month. It is an absolute honor to be involved in something of this magnitude, along with so many giants in the liberty and unschooling world. Ron Paul, Peter Gray, Pat Farenga, Pam Laricchia, Tom Woods, Thaddeus Russell, Scott Noelle, Skyler Collins, and the list goes on!
This lady is able and willing to purchase so much water because the price is being held down by government. What happens when the next person arrives, in arguably more desperate need than her for water, and its all gone?
I agree with the title of this post, written by “Nicole” on Facebook. I don’t know Nicole, but she’s a font of wisdom. I’m thinking we should go further.
At first thought this claim might seem true: Governments were created by the free market. I mean, if governments exist, and they didn’t before, then the free market must have created them, right?
This singular pursuit has been my solitary area of participation in the political process. I’ve given Libertas my hard earned money in the past because of the success I have seen from their efforts. Unfortunately, the parasites and predators that are government actors have continued to push back against these successes, unsurprisingly.
Do I value society with animals that I find delicious? No. Of course not. I value their taste and the nutrition that they provide. That’s it. And I obviously don’t value the hordes of insects I slaughter on a daily basis with my car. Who does?
