Scientists Discover Tipping Point for the Spread of Ideas

http://news.rpi.edu

Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals.

LP of Florida wants to distance itself from anarchist/voluntarists!

http://www.libertyflorida.org

An article in the Libertarian Party of Florida's online newsletter, entitled "The Libertarian Problem with Anarchy", by Tom Rhodes. I find this pretty sad... back when I was involved with the LP in the 90s, it was largely a group of anarchists/voluntarists who hadn't yet completely given up on inside-the-system activism. I guess the LP really is dead, huh?

New York Is The Least Free State, Study Finds (VIDEO)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

New York isn't North Korea, but it's the closest thing you'll find in the U.S. -- at least according to a new report from a libertarian think tank.

A Mercatus Center study has pegged New York as the country's "least free" state, 49 slots behind "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire. Its authors gave the state particular abuse for its taxes, "by far the highest" in the country, according to their methodology.

True to their libertarian ways, however, they also said that New York would have scored higher if it had legalized gay marriage.

F.B.I. agents get leeway to push privacy bounds

http://www.msnbc.msn.com

FBI Defines Press: The manual clarifies the definition of who qualifies for extra protection as a legitimate member of the news media in the Internet era: prominent bloggers would count, but not people who have low-profile blogs. And it will limit academic protections only to scholars who work for institutions based in the United States.

Ron Paul Introduces Industrial Hemp Farming Act, HR 1831

http://paul.house.gov

Nine States--Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, and West Virginia--allow industrial hemp production or research in accord with state laws. However, federal law is standing in the way of farmers in these states growing what may be a very profitable crop. Because of current federal law, all hemp included in products sold in the United States must be imported instead of being grown by American farmers.

Anarchists Have Civil Liberties Too

http://www.guardian.co.uk

The problem with the contemporary media narrative on protest is that, in its refusal to understand the nuances of anarchism, it is using the term as a euphemism for "dangerous", "violent" or "bad".... The dangers of this way of thinking hardly need explaining. There are flickers of McCarthyism in the way the state is currently dealing with those it perceives as threatening. Potential anarchists are intimidated and smeared, and denied liberty on the grounds of nebulous and almost Orwellian charges.

Civil Disobedience on a Paper Plate

http://www.mercurynews.com

The underground market seeks to encourage food entrepreneurship by helping young vendors avoid roughly $1,000 a year in fees -- including those for health permits and liability insurance -- required by legitimate farmers markets. Here, where the food rave -- call it a crave -- was born, the market organizers sidestep city health inspections by operating as a private club, requiring that participants become "members" (free) and sign a disclaimer noting that food might not be prepared in a space that has been inspected.

16 Signs The U.S. Economy Is In Trouble

http://www.datelinezero.com

This isn't an exhaustive list, by any means. But it's a list of 16 recent news items that spell trouble. From Wal-Mart itself warning people of inflation, to the fact that food manufacturers are quietly reducing the size of food packages (so that they don't have to raise prices ... for the time being), there's trouble on the horizon.

The author suggests not panicking, not worrying ... and looking to agorism.

A change in state police policy could create problems for Amish gun-owners in Illinois, as a rule requiring photos to be on gun-owner ID cards will soon be applied to their community.

As the blog Amish America writes Monday, many Amish people use guns to hunt deer and other game, and to disperse "varmints."

Zeitgeist Movement: Transition

http://www.examiner.com

In the film it is imagined that an identical unpopulated Earth is discovered. Well... there isn’t an identical Earth, so the transition is an important part of the puzzle, especially if you consider the tragic consequences of every historical attempt to abolish private property.

Peter Joseph imagines a massive revolution where the hidden masters in their smokey rooms realize the jig is up... and he skips straight to children siting in a high tech history class. That’s not really good enough.

Jacque Fresco has a more detailed plan.

Introduction as to How a Voluntary Society Could Function

http://www.lewrockwell.com

For those of you minarchists who are on demand feeding, this video gives an excellent introduction as to how the only legitimate government services (i.e., security, arbitration, incarceration) might be handled by the free market in a voluntary society. As the creator of the video himself states, the ideas presented in the video are only a start. Since a voluntary society in modern times has never been tried, we don’t know exactly what the structure of property protection services would eventually be like
