Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Kal Molinet, the man behind Liberate RVA and a renowned statist whisperer. Herein we discussed the beginnings and maintenance of Liberate RVA, how consensual relationships are anarchy in action, self-defense vs. the initiation of force, how it often seems suicidal to go against the tribe, how anarchy sounds “good on paper” to some statists, personal liberty, the failings of past secessions, being a boring person for the NSA to monitor, the illusion of security, the ‘someone should do something” mentality, Star Wars, liberty orientated book recommendations, how political solutions often ruin books about freedom, how building up a community is more feasible than dismantling the State, and more!
I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
