Welcome to Grokfest, New Hampshire’s New Liberty Festival

img 20220506 133746

Since the Free State Project began working to move liberty-minded individuals to the small New England state of New Hampshire, the sheer volume of libertarians and libertarian-adjacent people in the state has ballooned. What was once a small group of dedicated liberty activists has grown to leave a massive mark on the politics and culture of the mostly-rural Granite state, but the goal of “Liberty in our Lifetime” stays the consistent focal point for what could be described as a homeland for liberty. With more movers than ever before, the yearly liberty festival Porcfest has grown...

WATCH: Dozens of NYPD Remove Child Without Vaccine Passport from Restaurant

nypdboy 1050x525

As TFTP reported, earlier this month, New York mayor Bill de Blasio expanded the already-tyrannical “Key to NYC” program which imposed a vaccination mandate for workers and customers at indoor dining, fitness, entertainment and performance venues. Anyone who wished to enter a public place would first be required to give that place a glimpse into their personal medical records by providing proof that they had taken a covid-19 vaccination. Beginning last week, this discriminatory and unscientific practice was expanded to include children, ages 5-11, who are now also forced to show proof of...

What’s Worse: Murder vs. Traffic Fatalities

pexels pixabay 532001 (1)

The murder rate in 2020 was at an all time high, and commentators are in a tizzy about this. It turns out that there were 21,570 homicides in the United States. This is an unprecedented increase of almost 30% compared to 2019. An additional 4901 people were murdered compared to a year ago. Why do I deprecate this by calling the reaction to these horrific numbers a “tizzy?” Do I not think that it is a serious concern that so many people were done in by their fellow man? Of course I do. Yet, not a word, not a single word, has been spent on the number of people who perished due to traffic...

Economic Warfare – The Collapse Of Yemen’s Economy

Zahra

Inflation as a weapon of war. According to local economists who spoke to MintPress, the reasons behind the collapse of Yemen’s economy and its currency are many and varied but the expansionary monetary policy that has been taken by Saudi Arabia is one of the key drivers of the Yemeni rial’s devaluation. Local authorities supported by Saudi Arabia have regularly printed new banknotes in order to meet expenses compounded by the purchase of foreign currencies flowing into markets by foreign organizations. By the end of 2019, the total rial liquidity in circulation in the country was more...

Liberty Weekly Presents: “Wild, Wild Country”

In this summer special of the Liberty Weekly Podcast, I team up with Robert and Daniel from the Actual Anarchy Podcast for an in-depth discussion and analysis of “Wild, Wild Country.” “Wild, Wild Country” is a six-part Netflix docuseries which tells the story of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh–a man whose followers attempted to create a commune in the high deserts of Oregon. In doing so, they came at odds with the local townspeople . . . and eventually the US Government. Since I spent the whole summer studying for the bar exam and moving, this series was the perfect opportunity to open...

Everyone Should be Listening to Nobody Speak

When Terry Bollea, aka Hulk Hogan, sued Gawker Media for invasion of privacy, infringement of personality rights, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, the suit’s chief effect was to amplify the “news” that Bollea had been caught on video having sex with another man’s wife. Par for the course as salacious popular culture goes, and most of us treated it that way: As something of a joke. The laughter came to an abrupt halt when a jury found in Bollea’s favor, bankrupting Gawker with judgments totaling $140 million. In his new film, Nobody Speak, director Brian Knappenberger...

The Over-Criminalization of American Life

The over-criminalization of America has undermined justice, the rule of law and legal egalitarianism. While the corporate media devotes itself to sports, entertainment, dining out and the latest political kerfuffle, America has become the Over-Criminalization Capital of the World. The proliferation of laws and administrative regulations, federal, state and local, that carry criminal penalties has swollen into the tens of thousands. The number of incarcerated Americans exceeds 2.3 million, with the majority being non-violent offenders--often for War on Drugs offenses. Holly Harris has...

Two Studies Retracted After Claiming Video Games Make Us Violent

This article originally appeared at Anti-Media.   It’s one of those questions that currently appears to have no clear answer: Do violent video games lead to violence in reality? It seems any opinion on the matter can be backed up by evidence, be it scientific data, which exists in abundance, or personal experience, which is immediately relatable to any modern human being. No one is ever proven definitively right, yet no one can ever be shown to be absolutely wrong. Regardless of your opinion, the facts remain neutral. And one fact, as Quartz reported Wednesday, is that since the...

Why Can’t You Pay for Sex?

Is it illegal to date or marry someone only because they are famous, wealthy, or both? No. Are there unattractive people who have good looking dates or spouses only because they are famous or wealthy? Yes. Is it legal to go to a nightclub for the sole purpose of meeting someone to “hook up” with? Yes. Most Friday and Saturday nights — and on most Spring Break evenings — people are having sex with other people whose names they haven’t even bothered to learn. Consensual sex is legal. But as soon as one party offers cash to another in exchange for sex and that money is voluntarily accepted,...
