I don't know that I want to move to Keene and be associated as one of those Free Keene nutjobs by most everyone I meet.
You and most of the FSPers in NH!

To the point that non-violent civil disobedience and activism of this type work, they work because people who are usually disinterested take an interest, and decide the activist or disobedient types are right, and the establishment is wrong, or at least that there's a reasonable debate.

There's no one who isn't already firmly in the "fuck the state" crowd who's going to be moved by such behavior (and I'm not saying he shouldn't do it, but filming it and broadcasting about it are pointless.)  This is why I sent the email to the show a long time back and suspended my support--it was becoming the "free keene show" and I thought it was [doing] more to drive people away from the message than to it.

Ian may argue that it brings in more activists, but it obviously brings in more activists who do the same type of stuff, which isn't going to advance the mindshare of liberty in the general public--there in Keene, in greater New Hampshire, or the world.

My point was all the "Mommy look at meeeee" drama that has no actual point or goal will actually turn people that had been supporters OFF.  Forget about those that are neutral or antagonistic.

Yes, but wrong tense. That's exactly what's been happening for ~4 years now in Keene

Ah I see.  I haven't been following this for nearly that long.  Only have a bit over a year of exposure and actually was a supporter for most of it.  Guess I am not anarchist enough for the drama activism.  I am much more behind Brad and Talley type activism.

Sidewalk chalking can be quite cool.

So can candle-light vigils.

My woman graduates from nursing school this upcoming winter. That means that there will be basically nothing standing between me and the Free State! I need to start planning. Im thinking perhaps Manchester so far?

Don't know what you do for a living, which might lock you in to Manchester area, but I'd say see where your newly minted RN gets the best offer and look near there.

RN is one of the hottest jobs in the USA.
In NH there are a LOT of places an RN could choose from. Pretty much every "city" - Nashua, Salem, Portsmouth, Manchester, Concord...

I work as a cook, so I can find work almost anywhere because it is a high turnover job.

The conversation has shifted to a very not-dramatic direction...
