“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” – Salvor Hardin from the novel Foundation by Issac Asimov
Recently, FK activists have met with unprecedented resistance. Violence has been done to us by the State, and by individuals. Some believe that this is a sign that our efforts in Keene are failing. I regard it as a sign of success, and of vulnerability.
I see it as a sign of success because nobody bothers fighting against a failing movement. Nobody is attacking the communists or the socialists in Keene, precisely because they are going nowhere and doing nothing. People are attacking Libertarians, however, because they are becoming afraid we will succeed. This is confirmed, in my mind, by the high level of positive feedback we are getting on a daily basis. Many hate us here, but many more love us!
I see it as a sign of vulnerability because our numbers here are small, which makes self defense difficult. But the attrition is reversing itself! Since I got out of jail last time, I have seen a huge increase in activists and activism. We continue to get national and international news coverage, including coverage from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Vice.com, Comedy Central, and many other outlets! All publicity is good publicity for a little known movement!
What do we need to win in Keene? We need you, of course! We need your bodies, we need your money, and we need your voices. Please consider moving to Keene to join in the fight, sending donations to keep the starring activists in fighting trim, or spending some time posting about us and sharing our stories with those who may not know about us. Especially Libertarians outside of and libertarian leaners in NH.
Even if you have no intention of moving, Free Keene helps you by spreading the Libertarian message far and wide. Please help us any way you can!

Then they Fight you.
Then you win.” -Ghandi
