New Hampster? Why on earth there?
What's this group about, and how was he killed?
I just learned that Malcolm "Mose" Hastings, a dedicated FSP member and Organizer, has been killed in an accident. Mose was a CPA who advised and assisted FSP Treasurers past and present very capably. He also briefly served as interim Treasurer himself. He was a joy to have around on the Organizers list and to work with.
Prayers go out to his family.
NH does not want the FS!!
I thought they wanted to move to one of the Carolinas.
I kept telling them to try Vermont but do they listen to me???
|Ludicrousness defined: (Free State Project)
The whole idea seems ludicrous somehow, for people to move somewhere for the sole purpose of imposing their toleration of evils which they claim to not have any personal interest in.
"You know, I'm personally not involved in the manufacture or use of crystal meth, and am opposed to it, but I will sell everything I own and move 2,000 miles away for the sole purpose of moving next door to someone who does so that I can impose my toleration upon him. I'll sit on my porch overlooking his land with its meth still, and at all the traffic coming and going, and at all the environmental damage, and all the health and lives being ruined, and I'll wave and smile at them. It feels good, knowing that they wave and smile at me, too, as I go to church on Sundays and to the bingo game on Wednesdays."
For all those with notions of what the Free State Project is about, it might be helpful to go to the sight and get the gouge.
I might also suggest, for a distillation of libertarin ideas (fantasy without too much Rand), "HOPE" by L Neil Smith and Aaron Zelmam, and "THE PROBABILITY BROACH" by L Neil Smith. Both show just how rooted in the Constitiution the "liberts" are.
Just another perspective/.02
