Title: Attention Anarchists
Post by: Dreepa on July 05, 2009, 02:55:03 pm
Who do you want to see speak at the 2010 Liberty Forum?

Also no complaining about political speakers and minarchist speakers.

I would very much like to see "Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist" Joel Salatin:

This could bring us a whole new audience too.

I recall posts about Penn Jilette and Trey Parker.
Unlikely to waive speaking fees.
But you never know.

Hmmm...  maybe L. Neil Smith?

Dave Barry would be good (not an anarchist, but good for some publicity)

Given that you're not an anarchist, why are you posting on this thread, instead of one suited to your own political leanings?

Personally, I don't care much for speeches or speakers. I think that's more of a "Kevin" thing and less of an "anarchist" thing.

*Edit: realized this is for Liberty Forum, not Porcfest. Ignore my input, conventions are all about speechifying.*

and panels and interactives ....etc


come for the ambience then.

I have only seen about 10 speeches at LF  not a one all the way thru and I have been to all of the LFs so far.

I LOVE the speeches. I wish there were two or three of me so I could hear more of them.

I really have no input as I don't follow much of anything or anyone outside the FSP and I do find some of the more political folks interesting.

how about a comedian who complains about politicians?
people seemed to like the soapbox idol .... you could have anarchists get up on stage and rail against the politico types .... and if none of them are step up to the plate the other side can declare victory :)

The problem with the FSP?

As it has more and more success, all of the pro-liberty speakers become the audience you're planning the Forum for.

how about someone from outside the liberty movement that could never the less provide some insight on topics were interested in?

i'd like to suggest Phillip Zimbardo.  i'm in the process of reading his book "The Lucifer Effect" about how good people turn evil.  He has a very compelling talk at TED:

http://www.ted.com/talks/philip_zimbardo_on_the_psychology_of_evil.html (http://www.ted.com/talks/philip_zimbardo_on_the_psychology_of_evil.html)

i think that he has some important things to say and it relates to the liberty movement in the sense that we need to understand and promulgate to others the idea that Statism is an evil system that corrupts all who are involved with it.

I've never have been to a Liberty Forum but i hope that it is used as an outreach event to New Hampshire residents.  I think that someone like Zimbardo might interest our NH neighbors to come to hear him talk and maybe be introduced to what the liberty movement is about as a side benefit.

Hmmm...  maybe L. Neil Smith?

Hell yes, except I disbelieve he'd come all that way.

I've been suggesting to Ian that he be interviewed for FTL, maybe some other folks who like El Neil's work can suggest it too? Smith said he would be happy to do it.

On his website he talks a lot about him traveling so I don't think that's an issue.

That was before the TSA. At least being interviewed doesn't require physical travel.

A lot of it seems pretty recent to me.

Some people from my list last year and the year before have made it up so I'll strike through the redundants:

Roderick Long
Charles Johnson
Sheldon Richman
Brad Spangler
Wally Conger
Wendy McElroy
Carl Watner
Chris Sciabarra
Stefan Molyneux
David Friedman
Patri Friedman
David Hart
G. A. Plauché
Kevin Carson
Angela Keaton
Mary Ruwart
Tom Knapp
Arthur Silber
Joe Stromberg
Ralph Raico
David Beito
Robert Higgs
David Theroux
Bruce Benson
Tom W. Bell

Just because the struck-through have been there before, doesn't mean I would mind seeing them again. On the contrary, I like all of them  8)

If need be, I can add more names to this list, rounding it to 25, 30, or more. If it's necessary I'll do the work of contacting them and recruiting them, but I'd need specifics on what can be offered (flights, rooms, meals, reimbursements, fees, etc.) and to whom.

Lacking guidelines as to what sort of speakers are most desired I have just made a "most-wanted" list. If criteria are given (e.g. popularity vs. perceived need vs. ability vs. content) then I will tailor this further.

I'll second Scott Horton of Anti-War radio.  I listen to his show all the time, i'd love to see him speak in person.

Post by: Black Bloke on August 28, 2009, 02:14:25 pm
Black Bloke, I'm really liking your list. Beyond that, it would be great to see:

Gary Chartier
Scott Horton
Glenn Greenwald

Thanks Charlie  :)

Gary would probably be pretty good too. He's got experience in front of a classroom. Angela Keaton might be able to get Scott, Glenn is a left interventionist but a civil libertarian so he might have a place on the minarchist list.

How about Lew Rockwell?

Also, how about Anthony Gregory?  I saw his second speech for the '09 Liberty Forum (the one he did in place of Will Grigg).  He gave an excellent speech.

Thank you, Dreepa for getting Brad Spangler and agorism onto the agenda.

We'll have a "Meet the Agorists" networking mixer up in the AltExpo suite (206) at 6PM Saturday with a cast of agorists from around the world: http://fr33agents.ning.com/events/meet-the-agorists
Title: Ok, I finally looked up "agorist"
Post by: CurtHowland on March 21, 2010, 04:54:23 pm
Having finally looked up "agorist", that's it. I am not going to say "anarchist" any more, I'm going to say "agorist".

Here is the key element, from Wikipedia:

Strategically, agorists are advocates or conscious practitioners of counter-economics (peaceful black and grey markets). Agorism advocates achieving a market anarchist society through growth of the underground economy - the "counter economy." As the counter economy expands, it challenges the authority of the State, crippling its ability to operate.

Post by: EgoistIndividualistAnCom on December 08, 2016, 11:55:55 pm
Agorists can call themselves anarchists till they`re blue in the face but as far as I`m concerned they`re neo-feudalist economic separatists. There is a distinction between anarchism and federalism although most AnCaps  seem to have forgotten it.
