Chandler St. Pierre (it’s his birthday! woot!) and Michael W. Dean talk about the activism of feeding homeless and downtrodden people, the rock musical groups Bomb and Millions of Dead Cops, the Ferguson Grand Jury decision, and how peaceful cat ownership is more effective than a lot of what passes for “making a difference” in this world.
Michael W. Dean and Dianna Keiler talk about the value of attraction over (self)-promotion. And how watching a vainglorious car crash of a human destroy himself can be fascinating (and make some people want to make popcorn!), but it can’t really hurt a “movement” as a whole.
Also, the parable of “If you can’t be convinced to leave the meeting, the meeting will leave you.”
And “The Internet giveth, and the Internet taketh away.”
(Cantwell as “The Snookie of Liberty” meme by Jim Jesus.)
UPDATE: when quoted Ian Freeman as writing: “Just a bunch of intellectual wusses hiding behind their keyboards. Keene activists have more bravado in their pinky fingers than the rest of these folks”, he was talking about people who say that the Colbert Report piece on Robin Hooding was harming liberty. He was NOT talking about the makers of the card game “Libertarians Against Humanity.”
It was an easy mistake to make, on a thread where people are answering back and forth.
Davi Barker, Michael W. Dean and MK Lords discuss the various aspects of human gatherings, liberty and otherwise. Covered are conventions, conferences, un-conferences, expos, festivals, jam-band-burning-renfaires and more.
Also discussed are men-cutting feminists, anarcho-communists who engage in capitalism and much more.
Davi also states that “As soon as people started farming, the started getting farmed.”
Randy England, Ben Stone the Bad Quaker, and Michael W. Dean shed a bit more light and knowledge on a self-deceiving world by talking about how libertarians don’t need kings, even voluntary kings, we should be our own kings.
Also: Without the government who would point guns at you? Chris Cantwell, that’s who! He muzzle sweeps the cameraman, himself and downtown Keene NH with his snubbie revolver in this Colbert Report piece. (Cantwell’s horribly unsafe gun handling is at 2 min 5 seconds into the video). With this and a whole lot more, Chris Cantwell earns the title “The Snooki of Liberty” by needing lots of attention, and thinking that negative attention is better than positive attention. We predict it won’t end well.
MWD interviewed by Nathan Fraser on LiveFree FM podcast. Woot woot! Topics include self-schooling, how to fix the liberty mission, how to get good audio for a podcast or radio show on very little money.
MK Lords effortlessly and triumphantly graduates from third wheel to second wheel on the Freedom Feens. (Quickest co-host to do so yet!)
In doing so she explains why Bitcoin is pretty darned cool, but there’s still that little issue of people doing dumb things. She and MWD also discuss “How would we deal with crazy people with guns without the government.”
Davi Barker and Michael W. Dean coin a corollary to Godwin’s Law: First person to suggest their opponent might be a government agent loses the game. Then they explain fascism (and how it’s alive and well in America), how Bitcoin actually IS backed by gold, talk about the upcoming new LRN shows “Fly Fishing with Marc Stevens” and “Vocal Harmony and Music Theory with Larken Rose“, discuss Krokodil, black and red banners, “Is Jeffery Tucker gay?”, more on why the Feens are on radio, and why many libertarians fall for “quick fixes” to liberty that don’t work when they should be taking the long slow & steady road and looking for other roads that don’t involve “magic words you can say in court to get off scot-free.”
