Ian’s Speech At the First NH Gubernatorial Debate (Hassan Chickens Out)

Tuesday evening, I had the pleasure of being able to speak for up to ten minutes in front of the first New Hampshire gubernatorial debate. There will be no democrat debate, since both of the other democrat candidates refused to respond to the invitation from Franklin Pierce University. I’m grateful to the organizers at FPU for the opportunity to speak despite the other candidates’ absence.

It’s kind of surreal to watch a voluntarist (me) speak truth to power about the criminal state while standing in front of that very state’s flag (gang insignia), yet, it actually happened:

(And only possible in New Hampshire.)

Here’s the speech in written form: (more…)

The Free State Project through the eyes of a new mover

On January 25th 2014 I made the move to Manchester New Hampshire for the Free State Project.  In my short time here I have witnessed such amazing aspects of the liberty community that exists in Manchester and New Hampshire in general.  The community here is very strong and vibrant.

      After a short time here one very quickly begins to realize that the free voluntary society that we are all passionate about is literally being created in Manchester as well as across New Hampshire. From Keene to the Lakes Region down to Manchester/Nashua and the Free Coast, people are here right now being active for liberty. There is infrastructure in that there are multiple buildings such as Area 23 and the Quill in Manchester where people in the liberty community can hold meetings, events, and of course socialize. Agorism is a large part of this community as well.  There are multiple businesses in operation that have not sought permission from “the state”. (more…)

AKPF Debuts Electronic Revenue Program

The Democratic People’s Republic of Keene has invested great times and energies into the parkingcardmanufacture of a technology which city leaders hope will revolutionize the act of paying for parking as we know it. For a small fee, citizens of DPRK can remotely pay their dues to the AKPF for services of the department via cell phone in certain designated metered parking area. An article in Friday’s Sentinel announced the technological advancement which will function on top of existing AKPF infrastructure. Printed on a card delivered to one of the Merry People through one of the democratic people’s republic’s enforcers, numerous benefits of the city’s new endeavour are envisioned, including the option of vehicle locator and remote payment. What government entity wouldn’t love new means of capital collection? Best wishes to DPRK officials as they sample their new system.


Merrimack Valley High School Invites Free Keene Bloggers and Rep. Mark Warden to Speak!

Fellow Free Keene blogger Garret Ean, Rep. Mark Warden, and I spent over an hour discussing liberty with high schoolers at Merrimack Valley High School yesterday. We cover the war on drugs, gun freedom, jury nullification, civil disobedience, plea deals, government schools, the roads, and more! It was a root-striking, iconoclastic good time! The teens were very receptive, asked good questions, (as did the teachers attending) and grabbed several fliers on the way out. What an honor to be invited by Pam Ean, one of the school’s teachers. Thanks to all the students who attended! Here’s the full video:
