Book Review: Nonaggression Faith: SNaP Module #7

Turning the SNaP into a winning spiritual practice
by Brian Wright

Nonaggression FaithThis review represents the final module in my so-called Liberation Technology User’s Guide series (of seven): Nonaggression Faith. In this short book I lay down the foundations in creed, doctrine, and general requirements for a ‘religion’ and ‘church.’ Note the quotation marks around the two terms, necessitated by so many negative reactions to the unbracketed words. By religion I mean:

… an integrated system of belief in, reverence for, and practice of a supreme universal principle or idea, intended to bring spiritual fulfillment. Continue reading

Book Review: SNaP Module #6: Productive Action (2010)

The practical ‘what-you-can-do-now’ to prosper book
by Brian Wright

Liberatio Technology User's Guide: Module #6: Productive Action… as one contributes to the dawning of a world of liberty. In naming this book, this module in the SNaP series, I went through a few iterations before settling on ‘productive action.’ But productivity is what I wanted to stress, because the Patharchy has been quite successful in suppressing the life force and its material foundations among the natural humans worldwide. Moreover, I needed to focus on economic actions that are productive at the same time they pose alternatives to the statist system. Continue reading

Grand and petite strategies for success
by Brian Wright

Liberation Technology User's Guide Module #5: Breakthru StrategiesThe 5th installment in the SNaP[1] series is Breakthru Strategy, which discusses the so-called Grand Strategy for dispelling the Barrier Cloud, by moving along all three liberation axes, particularly overcoming mind control. The module describes lesser, or petite, strategies, as well, for achieving a society of reason and liberty in the context of modern Western culture. Then the book talks about several “Home Run” solutions, which lead to the street-level tips of Module #6: Productive Action. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: Next Step for the LP? (Part 2)

Leveraging the LP to create a majority party
by Brian Wright

MajorityPartyIn Part 1 of this piece suggesting a new direction for Libertarians,
I made my case based on the following chain of observations and premises:

  1. There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the 2012 Libertarian Party (LP) presidential candidate Gary Johnson and the Green—practically and essentially a ‘peace’ party—presidential candidate Jill Stein… when it comes to peace and civil liberties. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: Next Step for the Libertarian Party? (Part 1)

Part 1 of 2: Time for a ‘paradigm shift’ in grand strategy?
by Brian Wright (Part 2 here)

Johnson_SteinOn the night before the recent election, I’m watching the alternative debates on The site streams the verbal contest between presidential candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green Party, only it isn’t much of a contest. The topic is foreign policy, focusing primarily on peace and civil liberties, their positions virtually identical: yes and yes. [Dr. Stein, IMHO, has the greater civil libertarian street credit, having been arrested and held for a day by police for taking part in an Occupy Wall Street protest.] Continue reading

The Truth TorpedoThis ‘modest expansion’ of my column of the same name ( actually provides several enhancements to the main message, which is:

The PTB[1] have deceived the people for purposes of expropriation and war. Here are seven of the current higher-priority ‘Naked Emperor’ truths to counter the deceptions. When these obvious truths are grasped and asserted en masse the final obstacle—what I call the ‘Barrier Cloud’—to a free, enlightened, benevolent, and abundant society falls. Continue reading

Book Review: New Pilgrim Chronicles

Twelve steps toward liberation via the Free State
by Brian Wright

Reviewed by Logan Brandt

The idea for writing New Pilgrim Chronicles (NPC) stemmed from the author’s commitment as an “Early Mover” to New Hampshire under auspices of theNew Pilgrim Chronicles Free State Project.  He pledged to the Project in June 2004 during the Libertarian Party National Convention in Atlanta, then moved to southern New Hampshire following the Free State Porcupine Festival in summer of 2005.  Brian, a freelance writer and self-described Gonzo journalist[1], has regularly documented modern libertarian events as a participant.  He feels the Free State Project— which encourages migration of an active-resident freedom community to a liberty-friendly state—represents the best hope for achieving freedom in our time… through an ingenious, vital process of popular leverage.
