This week I joined the Punk Rock Libertarians Podcast to give a retrospective on the “activism” I did almost a decade ago. That word, “activism,” is repulsive to me now. Then, it meant I was “doing something.” It probably sounded like a joke to everyone else like it sounds like a joke to me now when others use it to describe their stupid, pointless protests and marches.
Don’t mistake my attitude for bitterness. But I was 21 during the “Victimless Crime Spree.” What were you like when you were 21? I am more mature now, I have learned what works and what doesn’t, and my example shows that civil disobedience is a pretty poor way to truly increase one’s personal freedom.
It’s a long, uncharted slog to the promised land of Ancapistan. In this episode, you get the benefit of learning how you can truly increase freedom in your personal life while minimizing risk. Enjoy!
It’s been long enough, and I have been well-behaved enough, that I got all my charges annulled last year. It cost about $100 to wipe away 16 or so charges because the State of NH was good enough to give me a bulk discount (I’m not kidding).
