Many mistake my interest in Crypto-Currencies and a Distributed Communication Network as a specific advocacy for particular methods. Bitcoin (a crypto currency) and efforts like MaidSafe.net (encrypting all information and bypassing the DOD’s Internet) are a by-product of the desires to be left alone and free to communicate with anyone in the Universe... privately and securely.
Within days of getting my first email account in 1993, I understood how the power of the individual would be increased exponentially to the point that single individuals would have the power to topple governments. And it has been my experience that entities and individuals hoping to retain their power will stop at nothing to keep their power intact. But more often than not, individuals opposing their being ruled are underestimated right up until they are overestimated. It is at this time that paranoia begins to seep into the actions of The State and its supporters.
My wife, Donna, and I are well aware of the impact a freed mind has on inspiring others and how influential a happy and healthy family can be to all that encounter them. So this is where we can be expected to focus our efforts. We have worked very hard in the advocacy of the voluntary and peaceful exercise of every human activity, and now we are ready to help in the implementation of such efforts. The Funding Center is in the final days of testing and is already raising resources for endorsed projects we support. The MarketPlace is already providing retail support for Voluntarist entries. We are working hard to eliminate the barriers to voluntary interaction between peaceful individuals and the resulting prosperity will be an inspiration for others to create their own concepts in direct competition with our efforts… Good! (it’s also Great!... but Good is the right word, don’t you think? :)
So while we will certainly use FreedomsPhoenix to keep us all informed on the many threats we each face from an ocean of collectivist efforts to keep us contained, you’ll continue to notice an emphasis on the sorts of activities, products, and technologies that are not dependent on permits or approvals. ‘Hacking Freedom’ has become much easier to do and to share, and all we have to do is keep breathing in and out longer than the terminally ill collectivist mindset. And FreedomsPhoenix is determined to be a resource that will make our lives much happier, healthier and sustainable as an example to Generation Next.
Please Pursue Your Happiness… and let us know how we can continue to inspire and help. Peace,
