The anarchist Republic of Cospaia

People often think that the lack of a government and the lack of laws would create some kind of Mad Max Society, where people would savagely kill each other. Hollywood certainly helped to shape our thinking about how the abstention of some authority would lead us to total chaos, after all, they have been making a lot of movies with themes such as the wild west since the beginning of the twentieth century. I am sorry to disappoint you, but the wild west was not that wild. Perhaps in another article I will talk about the Wild West not being Wild. In this article I will talk about something older and in the old continent.

Spreading The Ideas Of Liberty

The liberty movement has often struggled with trying to convince people to embrace freedom, liberty and individuality; to create a beautiful world where people are free to pursue personal happiness and embrace the personal responsibility that comes with it.

Do we need a government?

If we take a step back and look at the past two hundred years, there have been radical changes. Slavery has been abolished virtually everywhere, democracy is widespread, wars are less common, and world poverty has never been lower.

We must maximise our freedom

Freedom is not granted, and achieving it is not particularly easy or fast, like any achievement, it requires time and effort to spread the right ideas, which in their turn will lead to the right actions. It is a daily fight.

The Bitcoin Freedom Revolution

Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, created by an anonymous individual that goes by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, changed our modern societies. It provided humanity with a way to free itself from increasingly growing oppressive governments. This decentralized technology started a revolution of itself.

Politics

The people in charge are doing a terrible job

We are used to seeing press conferences discussing what measures will be or have been effective at reducing the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The media appears to assert almost axiomatically that if a restriction or mandate will reduce the spread of the virus, it should be implemented and there should be no further debate. Despite – at least in the case of the British Government’s SAGE committee – the dozens of fundamental u-turns on issues such as the safety of schools, efficacy of general mask usage, feasibility of herd immunity, and even Matt Hancock’s alarming uncertainty on the effectiveness of the vaccines, we are told time and time again to “trust the science.” To question their ever-changing gospel is to be “anti-science”, “a dangerous conspiracy theorist” and worthy of censorship, but scientific truth is decided by the universe, not by scientists.

Science & Technology

Get a Clear Picture of Science News

Pop-science is currently no topic to overlook on social media. Websites or social media groups sharing factoids or infographics amass millions of likes and receive a high number of content re-shares. In parallel, pop-science magazines also attract many readers and have a strong online presence.

What You Need to Know to Join the Alt-Tech Exodus

So, you’ve heard that big tech companies have transcended the niggling free market and reached the lofty heights of partisan politics — and act accordingly. Unlike prominent political figures you might not make the top of the purge list, but it’s no secret that censorship is surging. Both to protect your freedom, and to stop providing resources to those who would undermine it, it makes sense to jump ship. Now, when everybody else is also doing it. But how?

La République Anarchiste de Cospaia

Les gens pensent souvent que l’absence de gouvernement et l’absence de lois créeraient une sorte de société « Mad Max » où les gens s’entre-tueraient sauvagement. Hollywood a certainement contribué à façonner notre réflexion sur la façon dont l’abstention d’une autorité nous conduirait au chaos total, après tout, ils ont fait beaucoup de films avec des thèmes tels que le Wild West depuis le début du XXe siècle. Je suis désolé de vous décevoir, mais le Wild West n’était pas si sauvage. Peut-être que dans un autre article je parlerai du Wild West n’étant pas sauvage. Dans cet article, je parlerai de quelque chose de plus ancien et sur le vieux continent.
