It looks like Silk Road, the online black marketplace, has been shut down by the supposedly shutdown US Federal Government (I told you they really weren’t, remember?). Though I never traded on Silk Road, I recognized it as a haven for peaceful, voluntary trade and a shining example of ingenuity and innovation. Silk Road has been shut down, but it’s a safe bet that one or more online black marketplaces will soon rise up to take it’s place; a very good thing in the fight for liberty. And that’s today’s two cents.
Update: Beautyon explains why the FBI’s case against Silk Road is weaksauce.
