WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
Last week we talked about why I chose Voluntaryism as my preferred philosophy, and I received a ton of feedback on that. Thank you so much to those of you who reached out to me about it. It means a lot to me when I hear from people who take what I say to heart and implement those things in their own lives. That is one of the main reasons I do this show.
I mentioned last week a quote from Gandhi, who said, “If one takes care of the means, the end will take care of itself.” This is a very important aspect of voluntaryism, in my opinion, and this quote really helped me to understand that the way I work towards freedom is just as important, if not more important, than the ends that I seek. This is, of course, one reason I consider myself a post-political libertarian.
I said I would dive into this quote in a few weeks on this show, but the more I thought about that quote last week, the more I realized it was important enough that I go ahead and start that conversation as soon as possible, especially after all the feedback I received from last week’s show.
WHAT’S IN THE NEWS
In some quick twitter news, Ross Ulbricht, the alleged Dread Pirate Roberts from the Silk Road, is now on Twitter! Apparently, someone is transcribing messages from him directly to Twitter, and his mother, Lyn, has confirmed to me that these are indeed real tweet direct from the real Ross Ulbricht.
And, speaking of Ross, there is a Change.org petition for clemency for him that is up right now. There are over 30,000 signers as of this writing, and it is continuing to rapidly increase. if you have a spare couple of minutes, I highly encourage you to go and sign this petition.
In more crooked cop news, two police officers in an Atlanta suburb are on administrative leave after their chief watched body camera video that appears to show them joking about using a coin flip app to determine whether a driver would be arrested for reckless driving.
This Ancap App product is a really cool one that helps you to spread the gospel of cryptocurrency to the muggles.
