My site has a patron saint and his name is Lysander Spooner. Find out more here: http://www.lysanderspooner.org/
My charter is unapologetic: I wish to set my countrymen free from the physical and intellectual shackles that makes them wards of the state and beasts of burden subject to the whim of rulers whose only legitimacy is the perception by the fettered and the chained that they must submit.
My mission is simple: I don’t want to send the right humans to DC to fix the system, I don’t want to streamline and make government more effective, I don’t want to have limited government which has the same value as wishing for unicorns, for they don’t exist in this time nor any other. The only government I condone is self-government. This site and its contributors wish to continue the abolitionist project of men like William Wilberforce and Lysander Spooner. When all is said and done, government is force and the threat of force and my Rothbardian instincts tell me that ALL initiated aggression is wrong which would have the fortune of placing all government outside of one’s self off the moral reservation. Sure, I am an anarchist but not of the black-clad, masked property destroying variety so popular with the enviruses and the collectivists who wink and nod at them. No, I am an individualist ethical anarchist whose primary goal is the wholesale elimination of ALL slavery and involuntary servitude; chattel, regulatory, tax and any other moniker you wish to employ. I am an abolitionist wishing to complete the good works started by the aforementioned worthies.
Can we achieve this in our lifetime? Maybe but probably not. We are planting the seeds and tending the intellectual and spiritual garden. Ask yourself: if you have progeny, do they deserve better than you or should you simply shrug and make excuses for NOT doing the right thing? We owe this to our children, so teach them well.
