What is voluntaryism, and why have I chosen it as my personal philosophy? What’s in the News with stories on philanthropy for the win, government protecting itself, censorship, FOSTA/SESTA, and Defense Distributed. And, finally, an Ancap App segment on the Ghost Gunner app and machine that allows you to legally make guns at your home without the government being involved. This episode is brought to you by ZenCash, a cryptocurrency that infuses privacy, anonymity, and security done right.

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
WHAT’S IN THE NEWS
In philanthropy for the win news, love him or hate him, and I understand both sides of that argument, Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he will fund fixing the remaining homes in Flint, Michigan that are still without safe and clean running water. The public health crisis has raged since 2014 when the town changed water sources as a cost-saving measure.
In the government protects itself news, a federal court has ruled that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners cannot be held liable for abuse claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA).
In censorship is real news, prisoners locked away in the United States are offered a few luxuries while serving their sentence, and apparently reading the Game of Thrones books is not always one of them. You would think it would be banned because of the gratuitous violence, but apparently, at least one prison had a different reason for banning the books.
In thank you government news, wow, isn’t the government gracious! As Harry Brown once said, “the government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say, ‘See, if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk.” This is certainly the case for Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed.
Speaking of Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed, a project I’ve been following for a long time came to mid to talk about for a new Ancap Apps segment.
I’m speaking of the Ghost Gunner product that Defense Distributed sells which allows you to construct fully functioning rifles and handguns from the comfort of your own home using a simple software application connected to a small, personal CNC mill.
