General / Keene
« on: January 27, 2010, 03:00:53 AM »
Since I don't actually see one here, I thought I'd start it.  This page is for any and all info on Keene!  Shops, Apartments, Jobs, etc.  I know about freekeene, but thought perhaps this might be a good idea anyways :)  And I'll be keeping an eye out, I am looking for a job so that I can relocate. . .

General / Crime Prevention?
« on: October 31, 2009, 05:50:16 AM »
http://www.popsci.com/gadgets/article/2009-10/uk-citizens-catch-crimes-closed-circuit-cameras-cash

Starting next month, British citizens will be given the chance to watch a number of the country's closed-circuit security cameras in hopes of catching a crime and winning up to £1,000 as a reward. The "game," run by the website InternetEyes.co.uk, lets participants log in online, alerting officials in real time via SMS and/or email.

According to the company, businesses, government agencies and groups wanting to include their closed-circuit cameras will pay a monthly fee of £20 per camera, while those watching for cash will never know the location of the camera they're watching.

Still, civil rights activists are outraged at what they consider a violation of civil liberties (there's one closed-circuit camera for every 14 people in the UK), convinced the monitoring system could be misused to report frivolous or imaginary crimes.

Internet Eyes is quick to point out that this is a completely privately run service, with voluntary participants, and claim they have a system in place to disqualify anyone who makes three false reports.

General / would anyone like to blog on emancipation?
« on: July 26, 2009, 09:36:44 PM »
Video Blogs, regular blogs, etc.  Id like to get about 10 people blogging on it, so that it has something new every day!   if anyone is interested, pm me.

The blog's address is anaphilo.wordpress.com, but I'd like to register emancipation.com, I've contacted the site and am talking to them about it.  In addition, once everything is up and running, I'd like to purchase advertising on ridley report, freetalklive, and other such mediums. :)

General / A hypothetical situation
« on: July 21, 2009, 10:27:01 PM »
Here's a hypothetical question for you.
If a group of Free staters all moved to a rural area and purchased their houses, and the surrounding land, could they not incorporate that land into a city?  and, as a city, or borough, they could set up a city council.  This council could effectively set all locall taxes for that area as zero, and anyone living there would be responsible for picking up the costs that the former borough authority had previously accommodated.  DROs could be set up that charged at an as needed basis, there would be a volunteer fire dept,  roads would be built as the citizens paid for them.  of course, state and federal taxes and regulations would still apply.  what do you guys think?

WJPA in Washington (PA, not DC) Is letting me stand in and their teaching me how to run all the equipment.  some of thier stuff is pretty old school (8 tracks?) But this should be a good learning experience :)  I'm trying to learn all I can, and I want to spend at least 2 days a week there. 

Jim Quinn, the famous (and often delerious) Talk show host used to DJ there, 30 years ago.  Sean McDowell, of DVE fame, also was a DJ there. 

Everyone has been great there so far :)

General / Defamation in the stateless society
« on: April 18, 2009, 02:01:42 PM »
I am working on writing a new article for my blog and I would like to hear what you have to say first.  Do slander and Libel laws have any place in a Voluntary Society?


Quote
In law, defamation (also called calumny, libel (for written publications), slander (for spoken word), and vilification) is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government or nation a negative image. It is usually, but not always,[1] a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).

General / Homosexuality
« on: April 14, 2009, 10:31:16 AM »
I've written a new piece on homosexuality, it's a basic piece but I'd like to see what everyone thinks, and if there is anything I need to add, I'll make a followup.:
Quote
The fallacy of moral sexuality

Much has been made of homosexuality as being immoral. This is absurd, as long as we are talking about consensual sexuality. For homosexuality to be morally wrong, it would have to have violated the rule of morality, which is:

For a concept to be moral, it must have a positive effect on mankind
For a concept to be amoral, it must have no effect on mankind
For a concept to be immoral, it must have a negative effect on mankind
All of the preceding deal with effects on those other than the person commiting an action. Self harm is acceptable. Harming others is not.

An example of a positive effect on mankind would be providing free aid to those who need it. An example of no effect would be cigarette smoking. An example of a negative effect would be murder.

So while homosexuality, while it may be unfavorable to many people, would be amoral in nature, neither having a positive or negative effect on mankind. As such, homosexuality is completely acceptable, and any attempts to stop homosexuality would be in violation of the rules of volunteerism, as attempting to stop homosexuality would be force, unless you are talking about just talking to the homosexual.

Homosexual Marriage would have the same outcome. Since homosexuals being married would not physically harm anyone, preventing it using force would be in violation of the rules. Marriage may have certain religious and cultural significance, forcing a certain religion or culture upon someone else would be tyrannical. Since all Men and Women are inherently equal, it would be improper to place requirements based on gender, Just as it is improper to place requirements on race. Therefore, Gay Marriage must be allowed through the rules of Volunteerism.
