This is why I moved to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. I was sure that getting activists together would be the key to advancing liberty. Now I’m certain. Today was historic.
Pete and Ademo have been found not guilty by a jury. It’s the first time this has happened. In addition, they defended themselves and did not pour thousands of dollars into attorneys. They did a great job at it too (the video is coming – stay tuned), but what role did the audience play?
There were more than 50 people there on the first day and more than 30 there today. They were all supporters. They applauded Pete and Ademo multiple times. They laughed at the aggressors’ absurdities multiple times. They provided moral support for the guys. They protested. But also worth mentioning – they took time out of their busy schedules to support their fellow noncooperative liberty-lovers.
It’s tough to get turn-outs like this in other areas. Clearly, moving people who love liberty together is the best solution for maximizing liberty in our lifetime. It’s working in politics, (with a dozen free staters elected, laws repealed, the budget cut) noncooperation in court (with Pete and Ademo’s success and Weeda Claus’ partial win), and media (with the new FKTV and others).
Come be with others who are standing for liberty. Stand together with us. The time of the idea of “the state” is coming to a close. It’s the beginning of the end for this decrepit idea. Help accelerate its demise. Please join the Free State Project and move to NH. Be sure to consider Keene as a destination, as there is much more work to be done.
