Counter-Economics in Practice - Counter-economics Tag/Section/Forum Heading
From Wikipedia
---------------------------------
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counter-economics Tag/Section/Forum Heading

Counter-economics is a term originally used by Samuel Edward Konkin III and J. Neil Schulman, libertarian activists and theorists. Konkin defined it as "the study or practice of all peaceful human action which is forbidden by the State." The term is short for "counter-establishment economics" and may also be referred to as counter politics. Counter-economics was integrated by Schulman into Konkin's doctrine of agorism.[1]
---------------------------------
Bitcoin and darkcoin have ushered in a new era of "counter-economics" or "untaxation," as have etherium and several other new technological developments.

Ultimately, strong nanotechnology will make the state superfluous, or make it into the worst tyranny ever imagined by man.

Benevolence,

i spotted this via a 2typical net romp, and while thinking i'd heard the name somewhere, didn't recall anything further. Anyone read Konkin's work? From that F-word F-book romp source:

Quote:
Quote:► "Agorism can be defined simply: it is thought and action consistent with freedom. The moment one deals with "thinking," "acting," "consistency," and especially "freedom," things get more and more complex.

► Hold on to the virtue of consistency. The refusal to compromise, to deceive oneself, to "sell out" or to "be realistic" created agorism. Consider "being realistic." This usually implies that theory is fine for thinking, but in practice one must deal with reality. Agorists believe that any theory which does not describe reality is either useless or a deliberate attempt by intellectuals to defraud non-specialists.

► When someone urges you to be realistic, may you pick an agorist book to get the best description you can find of how agorism actually works. If you want to find books and articles that will "fake reality" for wishes, whims, fears, and spite, look for labels such as "Liberal," "Conservative," "Socialist," "Communist," "Fascist," or — worst of all — "middle of the road" and "moderate." Reality knows no moderation; it is — all the way. One way of thinking came close to agorism and is fairly well-known today ..... Libertarianism."

Introduction from Sam Konkin III's "An Agorist Primer"

Aaah yes, the ole "consistency" idea!

And for emphasis: the refusal to compromise, to deceive oneself, to "sell out" or to "be realistic"... ? (to benefit...?) [Image: mirarghh.gif]

Is it voluntary? (because if it isn't, what inherently is it?)
And can it be voluntary, if there's indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, threats & initiation of violence?
[not to be confused with asking: can it be said to be "voluntary" even when such is present.?]

It's there.
(the reference, not a numeral; i mean, can/should a guy "quote" and insert such?)

Oh,I see. You just put the number there so people would waste a lot of time trying to find the god damned referent. It's so much fun trying to follow your stuff. I'm reminded of The Church Lady, "Well now. Isn't THAT special?!"
