Guns, Weed, and Bitcoin: Among the Free Staters at Porcfest
FEATURE: What I saw at the Porcupine Freedom Festival

I'm only posting like the first 20% of the article.

LANCASTER, N.H.—There is a specter haunting New Hampshire—the specter of libertarianism—and every year it holds a huge party in the middle of the woods where people carry guns, smoke weed, prepare for the collapse of society, and trade Bitcoin for beer.

Since 2001, libertarians have been trickling into New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. The aim is to turn the Granite State into the freest, least-regulated place in the nation. There are around 1,500 Free Staters in New Hampshire now, and most of them congregate every year at the Porcupine Freedom Festival, a weeklong party where just about anything goes.

The movement has confused some in New Hampshire who weren’t aware they were living in an authoritarian police state, and has alarmed Democrats who love the government. Democratic state Rep. Cynthia Chase once called the Free Staters the “single biggest threat the state is facing.”

I travelled to the 11th annual Porcfest, as it’s known by attendees, to see this domestic threat for myself. The festival is located at a private campground a mile or so outside the town of Lancaster, up in northern New Hampshire among the White Mountains.

In the midst of this verdant scenery, more than 1,000 hardcore libertarians gather every year to live out their idea of a society free from overbearing government.

like omg it was such a life-changing experience!!! the state is collapsing!!

Sarcasm noted.  :lol: Still... it really was a blast. I don't need the state to be collapsing to count Porcfest a major success. Living amongst a lot of libertarians is helping me keep my sanity while statism marches on. And Porcfest is just plain fun.

I feel like I've posted this one before but I don't care. It's worth a repost.
