Current Events / New police tactic: Just blow 'em up.
« on: July 08, 2016, 10:46:46 AM »
By now you've no doubt heard of the murder of police officers here in DFW last night. New disturbing details just broke on the methods used to end the suspect's life.

"An exchange of gunfire followed the talks, after which a robot was sent in with the explosive device."

According to a Marketwatch article found here:http://www.marketwatch.com/story/dallas-ambush-suspect-killed-after-police-detonate-robot-bomb-2016-07-08

That's right! The police drove a robot with a bomb towards the suspect and detonated the device, killing the suspect. As my buddy who's also on this forum pointed out - no trial, no due process, just police and a bomb - their idea of justice.

Thoughts?

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know, the Instagram page I started is called "youthforkokesh" we have over 300 followers but I would really appreciate shout outs, even on other social media sites. Thanks!

Great page! I've been waiting for somebody to start creating memes with simple one liners from Adam's book. Maybe you guys could do that?

I think it would be really interesting to see how people in the UK respond to the same tactics Adam uses in his videos. Would it be as easy to get them to admit that taxation is theft? That democracy is just mob rule? Heck, I wish there was some way to quantify how differently people in the US vs the UK think in terms of freedom.

I've long hoped that Adam's lead on youtube videos would spur more people with personality to get out there and start talking to people on the street. It's so obvious in Adam's interviews that tons of people are already almost ideologically voluntaryist - you just have to demonstrate that to them. Youtube is such a powerful medium for this.

I wonder if Adam ever has people send him links to their videos? Propping up other activists with his audience could certainly embolden them to make more videos...

Just curious... what's your approach? If you've got half a personality in front of a camera and could stop people in the UK on the street like Adam does, seems like if I were Adam I'd think that'd be a cool thing to feature!

Yes, Texas schools are horrible. My wife couldn't believe the crap she saw when student teaching. She's convinced a few other teachers to leave public schools to come teach at Covenant. Plus, public schools are just coercive and immoral ;)

Can you give some more information on that school? We have a son that is almost two and are researching alternative school options in our area. Thank you!
Sure! Full disclosure, her school is distinctly Christian, but there are non-religious classical schools out there. Here's her school's website if you want to poke around. I'm also happy to answer any direct questions you have...

This link explains a little more on classical education.

Of special note, all students begin to learn Latin in 3rd grade and continue through high school, and high school students study Greek. They even read Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, and others in the Greek. Super cool.

My wife is a teacher in a private school run under a Classical model. I personally love the model. Based on ideas from ancient Greece, children are not only taught facts, but they're taught grammar, logic, and rhetoric (basics of knowledge, then how to form consistent ideas, then how to defend those ideas). The children that graduate are incredible. Each senior must compose a thesis throughout their Senior year that they then present to leaders in the school & community and must defend it like a dissertation. The one that stood out to me this year was entitled "A critique of the ethics of the new atheists compared to Ayn Rand's more philosophically consistent ethics of selfishness." Really cool model. Not overly authoritarian, private, and it cultivates reason and defense of reason.

A buddy recently handed me a folded $100 bill. When you unfold it, it's only half a fake bill and it says, "Taxation is theft," and has a website. Genius! Has anybody else seen these? Stuff like that left laying around could get a lot of curious people to the website

I feel as if I am always standing up for and defending my beliefs. Partly because I am always talking about what matters to me and most of the time it has to do with voluntaryism instead of Kardashians or some shit.
I also find it hard to hold my tongue when others start talking religion or about the glory of Obama, Clinton, or Trump.

^ This. I find it difficult to talk about "normal" things at length with anyone without it descending into talking about living free. It usually happens the second they complain about something related to voluntaryism, then I just chase down rabbit holes...

I'm down with helping in any way I can. I have professional experience in fundraising and marketing, and I've done portrait photography on the side for about 6 years. Let me know what I can do! I'm in Tarrant Co. (Benbrook just outside of Fort Worth)
