We all wish wish we could use our work to shape the world around us and make it a better place.. especially by doing the things we are passionate about.

Well, I love to be the bearer of good news… because we can! Yes, thats a thing. It’s called agorism!

I want to talk about what agorism is, its inestimable manifestations, reasons why its such an empowering tool towards solutions, and a few examples of how it works.

Thanks for watching 🙂

  1. Not bad at all. Your presentation was clear and concise, and I liked how you worked in both your advocacy for private cities as well as freedom cells. That particular combination of methodologies I think was good because it gave viewers a broader strategic viewpoint.

    In particular, I really liked how you summarized the 4 general approaches to political/anti-political behavior: 1. defeatism, 2. reformism (political crusading), 3. revolution/insurrection, and 4. agorism – it’s a simple way to compare and contrast these noticeably different approaches.

    As a further refinement, I’d suggest you may want to consider what Rayo mentioned in terms of what types of methods one ought to focus on first so as to make themselves as invulnerable to coercion as possible. He said, “All that is needed (for now) is a way to get parcels and messages in and out – interfaces with the freighting and communication services of that society.” [ http://vonupodcast.com/servile-society-value-import-export/ ] Perhaps if you were to think of different ways individuals could begin to transition out of the servile society [ http://vonupodcast.com/9/ ], then I think that exodus would provide a market demand for private cities.

    In other words, how might freighting and communication services become decentralized?

  2. What a joy to stumble on your blog. Instead of merely pointing out the deficiencies of the status quo to complain about them, you are taking positive action by advocating for positive action 🙂

    After years of fighting with the system on its grossly unlevel playing field, I only recently accepted that I was wasting my time. My husband and I will soon set out on a definitely more-Agorist course – one I hope will lead to still more Agorism and voluntary exchanges.

    We are literally and actually moving outside the status quo, selling our house and most of our possessions to live and work nomadically from an RV.

    I’m working to move my writing toward a focus similar to yours, but aimed at people who are only beginning to (or haven’t yet) considered Agorism. I figure my libertarian friends provide a nice echo chamber, but to really begin to effect change we have to figure out how to reach mainstream folks.

    I look forward to reading more of your stuff. Good on you for putting it out there 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Teresa! That really means a lot. I really resonate with the idea of not fighting the old system, but rather building the new so that the old becomes obsolete. The best way to prove an idea is evidence in the real world.

      And that sounds a great road for you guys towards agorism and freedom in general!
      So great to connect with you and I wish you all the best 🙂
