ActivistPost – Eric Blair – No Foraging in the King’s Forest Because It Hurts The Peasants – 6 May 2014

Logo_activistpost-comConveniently hidden in the noise of the Bundy Ranch standoff is the heart of the issue: property rights and use of government-owned land. With the federal government going on a land-grab spree of late, it’s time we have a frank discussion about “public” land.

ActivistPost – Eric Blair – IRS Makes Bitcoin Rules Simple For Wall Street, Impossible For Everyday Users – 26 March 2014

Logo_activistpost-comThe IRS just issued tax guidance for bitcoin and other virtual currencies. They classify bitcoins as property, instead of a currency, where tax rules of stocks and barter will apply. It seems, as always, that Wall Street wins and people lose.

It essentially means Wall Street has a new asset class to exploit at low capital gains rates, and retail businesses get the benefit of low transaction fees of the Bitcoin payment system without extra accounting; but everyday people who use it as a currency must report every single transaction for tax collection.

ActivistPost – Eric Blair – The U.S. Voted Biggest Threat To World Peace, Right According To Plan – 3 January 2014

Logo_activistpost-comThe United States has just been voted the most significant threat to world peace according to a global survey conducted by Gallup and Worldwide Independent Network at the end of 2013.

Twenty-four percent of those polled in 60 nations said America was the greatest threat, dwarfing Pakistan who came in second with around 8%.

ActivistPost – Eric Blair – Bitcoin Riches Spill Over To Alternative Digital Currencies – 27 November 2013

Logo_activistpost-comBitcoin has been on an epic rush. Its recent spike in popularity caused respected exchanges like Coinbase to temporarily suspend trading because they literally ran out of bitcoin to sell.

ActivistPost – Eric Blair – Shouldn’t The Police Have A “Do Not Fire Unless Fired Upon” Rule? – 10 November 2013

Logo_activistpost-comI’m bordering on hating the police state, and I’m the type of person who wishes away all forms of hate. It seems like there’s a new police abuse story everyday worse than the last.

It’s gotten to where I despise watching, posting, and sharing police brutality videos. I may stop clicking on them altogether for the same reason I don’t watch horror movies: you can’t un-see something, and I don’t enjoy knowingly exposing myself to fear or hate. Continue reading

ActivistPost – Eric Blair – Peer-To-Peer Economy Thrives As Activists Vacate The System – 28 September 2013

Logo_activistpost-com The Occupy Movement recently celebrated its second anniversary with very little fanfare leaving many to wonder where all the activists went. It seems they, and many anti-establishment activists, are vacating the system rather than occupying it.

Progressives may call it the “sharing economy” while Libertarians may refer to it as Agorism –  a “society in which all relations between people are voluntary exchanges by means of counter-economics, thus engaging in a manner with aspects of peaceful revolution.” Continue reading
