Reason’s Nick Gillespie: “Move to New Hampshire, you won’t be sorry!”

August 22nd, 2016 - 11:01pm by FTL_Ian in

Reason LogoReason Magazine’s Nick Gillespie recently sat down with FSP president Matt Philips to discuss the Free State Project’s libertarian migration-in-progress to New Hampshire. Gillespie has seen the evidence for himself – he’s visited the Shire on more than one occasion.

Now thousands more are slated to come for the FSP, while others are choosing to join the decentralized Shire Society and move independently of the Free State Project. Regardless of whether you join a movement or not, if you are a libertarian or voluntarist, take Nick’s...

Final Week for the Satellite Fundraiser!

August 12th, 2016 - 2:17pm by FTL_Admin in

We have one week remaining in the LRN.FM Satellite Fundraiser . It's pretty clear at this point that we're not going to raise enough money to expand our coverage this year, but I'd like to remind you that whatever amount we do raise will go towards continuing our African and American satellite channels.

It doesn't matter if we don't reach the goal, Indiegogo allows us to collect whatever is given (after they take their cut, of course). So please, don't let the distant goal stop you from contributing - go now to Fund.LRN.FM and give whatever you think a year's worth of broadcasting the ideas of liberty globally is worth to you.

From $10 and up, cool perks are available form Darry W Perry and Kallen Diggs , not to...
