You Can Still Protest Tyranny in Sacramento
WTMWD #49: Ayurvedic Medicine and Covid-19, with Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya

The Scouring of the Shire - in Buffalo, NY


This is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in a long time. 



According to the post description on YouTube, these are the gym owners. They start off by appealing to the humanity of the sheriff and health department officer who have come to enforce lockdown orders, and when that doesn't work, they assert their rights. And the result is beautiful.

I believe this is the gym where this happened.

Here's the thing. I–and my AnCap buddies–have been talking for a long time about how we need to eliminate the monopoly state if we are to live freely. I do believe that is true. But even in the absence of that, in the absence of achieving an AnCap world (I won't call it a "utopia" because that's a strawman) WE ALREADY HAVE THE TOOLS TO FIGHT TYRANNY.

We already have a tradition of common law. We still have the foundations upon which the Constitution was built, and it includes things like what these folks assert here: The right to face your accuser if charged with a crime. 

The common-law tradition also–from my own limited understanding of it–maintains that "crimes" must have victims, and cannot simply be things that autocratic governors or politicians declare them to be. I suspect that it also does not provide for "licensing authorities" to have the power to take away someone's right to do business, for any reason. 

I'm going to try to get some more knowledgable people than myself on this topic, to come on my podcast and further clarify. Because this is key. This is one of the most powerful tools we have to fight this crap, and everyone needs to know more about it.
