Gray Areas in the NAP? (Is Voluntaryism a Utopian Philosophy?)
A video for those who think market anarchists (Voluntaryists) are "pie-in-the-sky" dreamers. Talking about gray areas, and how, though problems would still exist, they would, by necessity, be infinitely less in independent societies/communities based on the nature-conferred, objective reality of individual self-ownership than in societies (current state) based on the legitimization of violent force.

It's No Exaggeration: You Are a Free-Range Slave.
A slave is defined as "a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them." Individuals such as you and I who are made to behave in certain ways, surrendering money, time, and even family (see compulsory schooling) under the threat of violence, cannot be said to be free. Most are slaves. And much worse, free-slaves who hallucinate themselves to be free, while supporting the most evil, child-murdering, family destroying, humanity humiliating, rapacious, vile and anti-life organization ever to suck its maggot teeth into the skin of the planet: the state.

Blockchain Tech: Anarchist Paradise or Orwellian Nightmare?
Thoughts on the potential double-edged sword of the crypto revolution regarding state surveillance. Discussing new and promising coins such as Civic (CVC) along with potential pitfalls. As an emphatically pro-crypto, blockchain evangelist, I think it is also important from time to time to reflect on potential detriments of "life on the blockchain."

The Joys of Being a Dirty, Filthy Capitalist: Why the "selfishness" of the free market works best.
After making a private crypto transaction recently, I was struck afresh by the beauty and true genius of what is commonly referred to as the "free market." Self-interested actors not being leeched upon by outside parties in economic transactions are the most powerful remedy to poverty and lack. Self-interested, theft and violence-free transactions are also (and this most importantly) the only ethically sound transactions that exist.

Bitfortip.com is a website dedicated to helping people find answers. It is basically a way to crowdsource suggestions, and the best answers are rewarded a small Bitcoin bounty decided upon ahead of time by the user posting the query. Now, the Bitfortip mobile app for iOS has just been released! I love the idea of Bitfortip, so I thought I would put the new app to the test, and boy did I. Join me as I ask my question, and then follow the answer all the way down to the sultry, busy, drunken, and tech-savvy streets of the most populated city in the world, on a quest to buy a brand new computer with Bitcoin!

VOTE FOR JOE! HE’S A GOOD GUY! (Why even a 100% moral and PERFECT ruler, would still be immoral)
FREEEEEEEEEDOOOMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!! Is more important than your stupid purist principles! Oh, wait. Nope. Nope. It’s not. Because compromising the principle of individual self-ownership, even if no one is violated immediately, always results in violation down the line. This is why we call them PRINCIPLES (foundations) and THE VERY REASON WHY WE HAVE THEM. Sowing a poison seed and calling it Voluntaryism does not make things better, ultimately, or course!!!!

The True Nature of Money.
You are more powerful than you know. Your mind is the arbiter and creator of value. Your mind literally makes money. The state is afraid of individuals discovering this power, because their whole violent paradigm is dependent on guns, ponzi scams, and religious belief in a myth. Namely, that those pieces of paper you use to buy and sell things have intrinsic value. Nothing could be further from the truth. Money, economics, and property are often viewed as obsessions of the “materialistic.” To the contrary, these are metaphysical, objective realities which are the “obsessions” of humans in love with freedom!

VJ LIVE! Ep.40 - Talking Property and IP with Stephan Kinsella.
Libertarian IP lawyer and writer for Mises.com Stephan Kinsella joins the show tonight for a discussion on IP, ownership, and the difficult topic of the very nature of property, itself. Tonight's talk promises to be lively one, as Stephan and I do not seem to see eye-to-eye on every issue. There are many things that, I think, ought to be ironed out regarding libertarian attitudes toward IP, and the all-too-common knee jerk reactions of anarchists against things even as legitimate as voluntary terms of use contracts. Which contracts, for the record, Mr. Kinsella has stated, are indeed legitimate, if unlikely to be entered into. JOIN THE LIVE CHAT WITH YOUR QUESTIONS!

Unschooling: Go-Karts, Monorails, and Bike Wrecks!
A day out at a unique park in Tsubame-Sanjo, Niigata, Japan, Learning how to ride a bike is an important part of life. So is learning how to wreck. *** My son Isaiah and I visited Koutsu Park today, in a nearby town called Tsubame-Sanjo, and had a blast. We were only there a short while, but that short while was loaded with laughs and quality bonding time. It was hot as hell today, too, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We tried out the go-karts, the pedal-powered monorail, and played in the miniature town they have set up so kids can practice their driving skills with real traffic lights and intersections. Pretty cool stuff. Isaiah had been there before, so he got to be the leader today and show me the ropes. He took charge of the go-kart, having me press the gas while he steered. On the monorail, I pedaled as nearly as fast as I could and got the thing going at a pretty good clip. It actually had me a little spooked up there, wondering if I pushed it too hard whether it might wobble off the track and send us tumbling to the ground. Isaiah was laughing pretty hard, though, and seemed unfazed. Before we left, Isaiah had his first real bike wreck, with battle wounds to show for it, too. As he was riding the bike back to the parking area, he misjudged the size of a small curb and took a tumble. The bike fell on top of him. He was more shocked than anything, but did get a pretty good scrape on his neck. Once he felt a little better, we had a chance to talk about why it's okay to wreck, and not to feel bad about it, as we have to make mistakes to learn. Upon returning to his mom's business meeting, he proudly showed off his battle wounds to the aromatherapy ladies and looked proud of his feat amidst their pampering, feminine concern. We had a great time. And this is what unschooling is all about. We read signs at the park, talked about the traffic lights and various situations that arise (I pretended to be an old man still on the crosswalk when the light turned green) and what to do about them, and really enjoyed being together. None of it was a planned "lesson" at all, or anything like that. We were just there to *have fun.* I hope you'll enjoy this video, and thanks for reading!

Government (statism) *IS* Violence. It's not just "a few bad apples."
The main reasons for individuals rejecting the ideas of voluntaryism and anarchism are lack of understanding, and fear. People have been brainwashed to think of the state as an order-giving, protective parent. To question this parent's legitimacy creates an existential crisis people are afraid to face. They also tend to believe that anarchism (read: Voluntaryism/Anarcho-Capitalism) are attempts to destroy civilization, reationality, law, and order. This couldn't be further from the truth. The opposite is true. Please enjoy this brief talk on the subject.

Stalked at the Home Center (Religion is a Parasite/MLM Marketing Scam)
Had a funny, annoying, and kind of sad encounter today at the home and garden center here in the small town where I live. There are many small cults in Japan, and it’s not uncommon for them to seek you out at your home, but this time was a really “aggressive” sales pitch, right in the middle of my shopping for a new charcoal grill. Religion to me is anything that one puts before one’s own nature-given mind and sense. It’s a parasite, because it hijacks a human’s brain, replacing original, genuine thought with rehearsed programs and things one is “supposed to” believe, think, or feel. When you’re religious, you cannot connect on a genuine human level with anyone, because—much like in multi-level marketing scams—everyone is just a mark, ultimately, in your scam to feel holy and “save” them.

Kill Your Idols: The End of Idolatry is the Beginning of True Freedom!
We all go through the process of taking the journey from child to adult, necessarily trusting our first guides in life, but gradually, as we get older, learning to think for ourselves. We initially believe in Santa Claus, etc, but soon learn it is a lie. Sadly, most go on then to believe in "State-a-Claus," and remain "idolaters," worshipping "government" and assuming violence is legitimate via the means of magical and religious thinking. Statists aside, however, I have seen an encouraging trend on libertarianism recently, and it is akin to a massive splintering. It is as if many individuals are no longer shaping their views based on what some "celebritarian idol" has to say, but on their own thoughts, logic, and convictions. I view this as a net positive. In this video I discuss the nature of idolatry, and the absolute necessity of abandoning *ALL "IDOLS,"* libertarian or otherwise, if one would be truly free.

Police Worshippers Defend Rape of 20-Year-Old Woman in Texas.
I finally got around to watching the video and reading the story of the rape of 20-year-old Charnesia Corley in Harris County, Texas. While this is shocking enough, I was more appalled to see hundreds of individuals DEFENDING THIS RAPE on social media. Self-defensive action, up to and including lethal force, would have been justified to stop this violation.

“By the Power Vested in Me” Kokesh 2020 Chooses Platform Over Property
“The entire concept of voting for someone to rule you...of imposing your choice of a leader on someone else, is unethical.” ~ Adam Kokesh “...by the power invested in me by the American people through the American electoral process...” ~ Adam Kokesh If the two quotes above seem to contradict one another well, that’s because they do. What is the “the American people” to an individualist anarchist? And since when has the “American electoral process” been a legitimate means by which a voluntaryist can gain authority or claim ownership of property? In this video I analyze some of Adam Kokesh’s confused ideas on voting, his “presidential platform,” and most importantly, point out the philosophically irreconcilable differences, and outright incompatibilities between his plan, and the foundational, logically sound voluntaryist/anarchist property ethic. To the Kokesh fans out there (of which I very recently was one) I would encourage you to examine the content and arguments made in this video, objectively, carefully, and rationally, before raising counterpoints or slinging mud in the comments section. Cheers!
