Problem: Police, Solution: Agorism

On Saturday attendees at Houston’s End The Fed rally were exposed to the ideas of complete liberty, compliments of activist extraordinaire John Bush.

I have nothing but respect for John for reasons that should be obvious – he’s a doer and an effective and passionate speaker able to distill down a seemingly complex issue into one that’s clear and accessible.

It’s all about choice – when your ability to choose is restricted or denied entirely as is the case for “law enforcement” and the criminal [in]justice system today, accountability is non-existent and market signals are absent. But as John outlined, we need not be satisfied with the Statist Quo or live in fear; we can strengthen our communities and create institutions that serve our needs more efficiently and morally. As that happens, legitimacy granted to violence-based monopolistic institutions is eroded – eventually becoming just a relic of the past.

Thanks to TrinityTexas77 for recording!
