The Trouble With Dave Smith

  On the issues, Dave & most agorists can find agreement 99 out of 100 times, but as libertarians we have a habit, a pastime - a duty even, to seek out & argue over the 1% of things we don’t agree on. In keeping with that tradition friends, I've got to tell you, when it comes to strategy, Dave Smith seriously fumbles the ball. The fundamental issue is that @comicdavesmith is interested in creating libertarians, whereas agorists are interested in creating liberty. Dave has a classic case of @perbylund ’s Savior Complex - the irrational desire of individualists to save the collective whole of society. There are lots of problems with this, but even if creating libertarians is a worthy goal, does that mean the Libertarian Party is the best vehicle to accomplish this task? Has anything the Libertarian Party ever done caused even a slight retreat of statism? Dave rightly points to his own success at spreading the message of liberty. It's true, no one - save Ron Paul or Tom

Dear America, I Won't Be Locking Down









Dear America


I won’t be locking down, not that I ever did.

And I don’t care about the arbitrary mandates of a geriatric pedophile with a history of dementia.

I don’t wear the muzzle or social distance. Nor do I have any plans to start.




I won’t be avoiding friends or family & I actively seek out large public gatherings. Needless to say, it’ll be a cold, cold day in hell before the government injects my living body with a foreign substance or keeps me from my family on Thanksgiving Day.

You see, I knew from day one that COVID was a hoax. More specifically, when videos of Chinese people dropping dead in the streets were being broadcasted by Western propaganda outlets, it became clear this was essentially a soft coup. As a general rule, anything coming from the CCP should immediately be assumed to be intentionally falsified for malicious purposes.

Friends, what has happened is obvious.

The political cartel has manufactured a virus because fear enables them to seize power & furthers their goal of enslaving mankind. On a more granular level, COVID was both a convenient scapegoat for the central bank’s mismanagement of the global economy, and a means to an end in extricating the rogue band of socialists cloistered around Trump from the White House, and returning the establishment Democrats to the throne. Moreover, it enabled them to shift the Overton window of acceptable civil liberties violations in previously unimaginable ways.



First, the virus was used as justification for mail-in voting & mail-in voting was the primary tool the establishmentarians used to aid them in their electoral fraud, thus allowing them to seize power. As Jeff Deist has pointed out, if you’d feel uncomfortable sending your license or social security card through the mail, there’s no reason to assume your ballot is any more secure.

It’s important to note, the reason why mail-in voting is insecure is because USPS is socialized by the federal government. Which begs the question: Since USPS is under charge of the executive branch, is assigning the incumbent administration the task of ensuring “fair elections” consistent with the spirit of checks & balances? No, friends, these loopholes of electoral integrity (as if such a thing could exist) were intentionally created to corrupt the process & were justified under the guise of a made-up scamdemic.

Secondly, the virus was used to justify a massive “stimulus” package, which for all intents & purposes, amounted to the largest heist in human history. The injection of easy money by the Fed earlier this year was to the economy as a shot of heroin is to an ailing junkie experiencing withdrawals; a facade of temporary relief. And just as the shot of dope masks the junkie’s true problem - substance addiction; so too did the stimulus package mask the Fed’s true problem, an addiction to cheap money.

Note that these cracks in the global economy didn’t suddenly appear in March. Nor was the injection of liquidity to keep the Fed’s ponzi scheme alive made necessary by COVID. These cracks first appeared alongside the rise of fiat currency & grew with it. They are the direct result of bankers devaluing our money for decades on end.

Finally, the state used the virus to justify a massive transfer of power from the people to the states. Even one of the 9 lunatics in bat suits, Sam Alito said:

“We have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive and prolonged as those experienced for most of 2020. The COVID crisis has served as sort of a constitutional stress test.”

...A stress test failed miserably.

Videos of women and children being abducted from playgrounds in Idaho, Jewish services being raided in NY, & businesses shuttered nationwide, all bear the burden of this failure. I am convinced this loss of liberty is mere preparation for what’s to come.




Less than 20 years ago TSA checkpoints were controversial. Less than 5 years ago domestic surveillance was controversial. Both are now largely accepted by the fluoride drinkers. I venture to guess that in 5-10 years, the sort of rights-violations noted above, will no longer be controversial either. The virus has enabled the state to shift the Overton window & further domesticate their cattle.

Luckily, in all aspects, agorists are two steps ahead of the state.

Electoral fraud got you down? Stop Voting.
Another corporate bail-out wiped out your 401K, again? Become your own bank
Politicians violating your liberty? Ignore the illegitimate gangsters.

Friends, now is not the time to discuss theory or messaging. Now is the time for direct action, for innovative & entrepreneurial, counter-economics. Take control of your life, cut your chains & join your agorist brethren on the front lines in the modern struggle for liberty!

Lord knows we’re going to need all the help we can get!

Against the LP

Agorism has no room for politics.  The Agora & political institutions can coexist no more than a state of marriage & bachelorhood can coexist. Counter-economics & politicking are likewise mutually exclusive. Frankly, it should seem obvious that engaging in politics & anti-politics is contradictory & self-defeating. It wouldn’t make much sense to get chemo in the morning & smoke a pack of Marlboros in the evening, so why would one seek to destroy the government today, and empower it tomorrow?  Just as a chemist who tests a logically inconsistent theory will experience failure, so too will social scientists & revolutionaries experience failure when they pursue inconsistent theories.  Note that without exception - every gain made by the liberty community in the past 15 years has been produced by the counter-economy & that no other faction of our movement can claim even a small victory . Here’s a brief look at the scoreboard: Whereas the LP & small gov

In Defense of Left Libertarianism

Marx was right, but Marxism is stupid. Let me explain… Marx’s fundamental critique that the working class is being exploited by the upper class is true. This is so inherently obvious in the modern political climate that I find it bewildering the notion even needs defending. In fact, today, the working class has been so thoroughly exploited that they can now be more accurately termed the working poor . Go to Manhattan, the neoliberal shithole from whence I came - and try to find a worker who both lives & resides there. You can’t. There aren’t any. The elites have successfully used a combination of high taxes & a denial of civil liberties to expel the working class from their homes. Trust me, I am among the expelled. The anarcho-capitalist habit of turning a blind eye to class theory is a grave mistake, as it sweeps real concerns under the rug. In doing so they dismiss the plight of an enormous contingent of the public - labor. No, we agorists aren’t seeking an abandonment of met
