While helping the homeless, as an alternative to "public housing", our Tent City has saved the tax-victims millions!

It offers a far more efficient alternative to government shelters, with far more respect to the Rights and Liberty of the homeless.  Thanks to personal freedom, a sense of community, mutual aid, and volunteers who actually care - a homeless person can be happier in a $300/year tent than government housing that (with all the bureaucratic overhead) can cost as much as $20,000/year!  Perhaps this is why they're so obsessed with bulldozing us...

General / Rally Against Injustice At Tent City (Lakewood, NJ)
« on: June 03, 2014, 05:23:59 PM »
For more than a year now, I've focused most of my thought and activism on what many consider to be the "Achilles' heel" of a libertarian / free market capitalist society - what is to happen to the "bums" who fail to pull their economic weight.

On March 1st, 2013, I've moved into Tent City - a homeless camp in Lakewood, NJ that at the time was said to be the largest in North Eastern USA.  In exchange for my stay (using the camp as an agorist cover for my on-going 10+ year tax resistance), I've worked as the camp's "computer guy" - running the Web-site and Facebook Page, maintaining correspondence with supporters, keeping books, writing letters for people, etc.  A distinction should be made between the positions of this camp's leadership and my own, although the positions overlap to some degree - they want to help the homeless by any means necessary, while I reject all government help.

I've been doing a lot of thinking and some online writing / ranting about the underlying causes of homelessness, how government hurts the poor, how the free market can do better, and the Right to homestead so-called "public land".

Socialist tyrants always say, "what about the poor"?...  Tent City is living proof that government does a lot more harm than good by artificially raising the cost of living, chasing away jobs, creating resentment, and discouraging voluntary charity!

Tent City is the voluntaryist alternative to the coercive, inefficient, corrupt, immoral, tyranny-empowering racket of the Welfare State!


Now the camp's population is down below 20, compared to over 120 a year ago.  Many people in need were prevented from coming here - many ended up living under bridges, in alleyways, etc.  Most of the original population has been bribed or coerced into leaving.  Tent City is now in its final death-throws...


If by any chance anyone here happens to be in the communist cesspool of New Jersey...

Please join us at Tent City (or by the intersection of Cedar Bridge Ave and S Clover St in Lakewood) any time you can this week with signs for a Rally Against Injustice At Tent City!

We are protesting unconstitutional and inhumane anti-homeless laws, government waste and corruption, and the bulldozing of a much-needed charitable institution!


Bring a token donation (ideally bottled water) in case the police question you, as it has been legally established that supporters are NOT trespassing when they bring donations to Tent City.

Please make and bring your own protest signs. Try to have a camera to take photos and videos of the events. If you are really brave, bring a tent.

More updates to come.  Please reply and let me know what you think.

The best place to get all the latest news about Tent City is our Facebook Page.  (I've avoided Facebook for many years, but finally started using it to spread the word about Tent City.)  If you agree with what I'm doing, please send me a friend request.

We have gasoline-operated log splitters at Tent City - very easy and safe to operate.  This looks a lot more dangerous in comparison.

With NY State out to "regulate" Bitcoin, having many competing digital currencies is definitely a good idea.  Maybe I'll create a Tent City fork called Bumcoin, LOL.

My response to a Dem politician gloating over the minimum wage hike:  [FB]

Quote
Of course you've "won" - as always, buying power with stolen loot. People vote for free stuff - that has always been understood. The mob will even vote that 2 + 2 == 5 if that profits them, but Natural Laws will remain unswayed. Democracies always go through this as they collapse. My side, free market capitalism, will win in the end - win not in some demagogue popularity contest, but in objective evolutionary terms.

The 21st century will be most interesting. Technology will change everything, and make your governments not only obsolete but impossible to maintain. All the archaic frameworks of Nation-States, which you take for granted, will weaken, fragment, and collapse. Intergovernmental competition will force the fragments to follow free market economic laws, or collapse even faster. I optimistically believe that attempts to create a universal World Government, which is my biggest concern, will collapse also.

You will observe more and more people like myself - simply ignoring your laws, like they ignore the Fatwas of some Ayatollah. People like myself will never be in majority, but even 0.1% should be sufficient. I am philosophically principled, incorruptible, uncontrollable, untaxable, very competent with 21st century tech, perfectly happy in my studies whether I'm "homesteading government land" in a tent or in a prison cell, and killing me would only bring more attention to my ideas.

And so, I will buy and sell services in exchange for Bitcoins, even at rates below the "legal" "minimum wage" if I so choose. You can have my dead body, but not my obedience!


From a comment:

The "killing me would only bring more attention to my ideas" line may seem overly optimistic...

My position has weakened considerably in the last 3-4 years, with me being betrayed by other libertarians and losing confidence in the Free State Project. As a former programmer, I have the IT competence to make myself completely self-reliant in the expression, dissemination, and proliferation of my ideas, but for these years I have been completely crippled with depression and self-doubt.

But guess what? I am still alive, and this adversity has only made me stronger!


And That's How Libman Got His Groove Back   :D

See, I've finally let go of the emotional need to explain how much y'all book-burning idiots have hurt me...

I can be awesome all by myself!

Wooo!

Now please like me again.  Please...

Err, I mean, fuck you all!

I love you.

Err, FUCK OFF!

;)

Live super-duper-cheap.  Have no USD income.

I live in a homeless camp, scare away government bulldozers, manage their online presence, talk to potential donors, help bring in donations for the camp (population: about 80, down from 122), and live off a tiny fraction of those donations.

I've been "sharing" for years...

Ex: "Frugal Tax Resister Diaries".

Many of my writings have been deleted by Ian Fraudman.   :cry:

Since I was so crucified on FSP forums, I kept to myself, and thus my options were limited.  I can't fight the legal battles alone.  So I lived cheap.  Very cheap.  Currently living in a tent in the woods with the homeless folks in Lakewood, NJ - the largest Obamaville in North Eastern USA!  (But I've already said that.)

Hey - beats surrender.  Or prison...

I've quit paying taxes 10 years ago.  Haven't met many other serious tax resisters.  You end up with several bad choices, short of surrender or death: prison, or living with bums in a tent in the woods.  I originally contemplated confronting the issue and going to prison, but after all Free Staters got in line and stabbed me in the back, I had to postpone that...
