The Free State Movement: Political Migration in Our Time posted 03/02/2012, 7:58 PM (Jeffrey Tucker)
[Category: Commentary]
If you are willing to look past mainstream media coverage of American politics, you can actually find exciting and interesting activities taking place that rise above lobbying, voting, graft and corruption.

Consider the Free State Project. It is an attempt, and a surprisingly successful one, to inspire a political migration by lovers to liberty to New Hampshire. It is not about lobbying, forming a political party, populating a real estate development or anything like that. It is about seeking a place to live and let live in these times when the political culture seems to be about everything but that.

The idea is to gather people with some consciousness of the idea of liberty so that they can live peacefully among friends and influence the political culture in a way that brings more freedom or at least protects what we have. As the statement that Free Staters sign says: "I will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of civil government is the protection of life, liberty and property."

I had heard of this movement for years, but, frankly, didn't pay much attention to it. I suppose that with only a passing glance, it seemed sort of cranky and unworkable, just another scheme. I was completely wrong. This is a serious movement that is achieving real results, as I observed when I was invited to attend the annual Liberty Forum in Nashua, N.H.

Why New Hampshire? It is the "Live Free or Die" state without a sales or income tax. It has low population density, which increases the chances that the influence of the libertarians can be felt in the culture and the Statehouse. It has lower business regulations than the rest of the country, and wonderful homespun culture that turns out to be highly tolerant toward cultural and political eccentricity.

The whole notion really began in 2001 with research by politica

Why Individualism is More Compassionate than Collectivism posted 03/02/2012, 7:57 PM (J.G. Vibes)
[Category: Commentary]
Throughout most of the world people are taught to look at reality in a very polarized way. When certain issues are presented to us through mainstream circles they are usually oversimplified to the point where all concepts are either black or white, and all people are either good or bad, with no in between.

The reality of the situation is that things are much more complicated than that; there are usually many different ways of looking at things and many different sides to the stor

30 Stupid Things The Government Is Spending Money On posted 03/02/2012, 7:57 PM (The American Dream)
[Category: Economy]
If you want to get paid for doing something stupid, just turn to the U.S. government.  The U.S. government is paying researchers to play video games, it is paying researchers to study the effects of cocaine on Japanese quail and it has spent millions of dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.  The amount of money that the government wastes is absolutely horrifying.  Do you remember all of that political wrangling over the debt ceiling deal last year?  Do you remember how our p...

Just one month from today, Japan will lower their corporate income tax rate from 39.5 to 35 percent. When they do so, the United States will officially have the dubious distinction of possessing the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, a federal/state integrated rate of 39.2 percent.

RIAA CEO Hopes SOPA Protests Were a 'One-Time Thing' posted 03/02/2012, 7:53 PM (InternetEvolution)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
To some, January 18th -- the day the Internet came together in protest of SOPA and PIPA -- was seen as a day of important democratic action. To others, like the RIAA's CEO Cary Sherman, it was seen as a great failure of the democratic system. An act of "demagoguery" rather than "democracy."

WikiLeaks Diplomatic Cables FOIA Documents posted 03/02/2012, 7:53 PM (ACLU.org)

In June 2011, the ACLU filed suit against the State Department to enforce a FOIA request seeking 23 embassy cables previously disclosed by WikiLeaks. The agency released redacted versions of 11 and withheld the other 12 in full.

The five excerpts below show the government’s selective and self-serving decisions to withhold information. Because the leaked versions of these cables have already been widely distributed, the redacted releases provide unique insight into the government’s

The more I read, the more I wonder how so many people can miss the real danger this poses to the average user. I immediately ask, what happens if a hacker cracks the mechanism and can write some malicious code to brick millions of computers? Or worse, with all the already infected machines we know exist, what if their Trojan Horse overlords simply call up the bricking code to hide their tracks?
