Philadelphia, THIS Saturday ("Choosing Sides")



. .
. Choosing Sides

This Saturday, February 23 (2013), from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., I'll be
in downtown Philadelphia, on Independence Mall, for a protest
regarding Bradley Manning's 1,000th day in prison. Here's more info:



I was just working on a video about pack mentality when I was
invited to speak at this event, and the topic is a perfect fit, so
I'll just videotape my talk there. My "rant" will only be about 15
minutes, but I'll be hanging around before and after, if you want
to say hi, or throw rotten eggs at me.

As a teaser, my "rant" will have to do with the fact that too many
people would rather be loyal to "teams" than be loyal to
principles. People think in terms of my country against your
country, my race against your race, my religion against your
religion, my political party against your political party. And that
almost always ends up in people turning a blind eye to evil (when
committed by their own "team"), and feeling hostility to people who
should be their allies (if they're on the "other" team).

It should be a fun gathering of trouble-makers. Be there, or be an
equilateral right quadrangle.

Sincerely,


Larken Rose

"Front Sight" Program

MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


A couple people who I know are on my list said they didn't get this
message that I sent earlier today, so I'm sending it again. This is
about getting a Diamond membership to the "Front Sight" firearms
training course, for a lot less than it normally costs. See below.
Anyone who sends me a bid by e-mail by tomorrow night will be "in
the running." (I've already had a number of bids, but I don't want
to "close the doors" yet.) Then I'll let the bidders know what the
top bid is, and people can duke it out for first and second places.

. "Front Sight" (firearms/combat training) Program

I've known for a while about "Front Sight," an organization based
in Las Vegas which provides really cool firearms/defense/combat
training, WITHOUT the fascist boot-camp mentality. And the program
is for pretty much everyone, whether you've ever held a gun before,
or are already proficient. If you aren't yet familiar with the
"Front Sight" outfit, check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfOqdpWAELE

I realize this is starting to sound like a commercial, so let me
tell you why I bring it up. As it happens, someone is looking to
sell two Diamond memberships to Front Sight. (Once they are
transferred to whoever buys them, they can't be transferred again.)
With a Diamond membership, it means you can do any or all of the
Front Sight courses (handgun, shotgun, rifle, machine-gun, combat,
etc.), as many times as you want, for the rest of your life.

As you might expect, such memberships are normally really dang
expensive, going for many thousands of dollars. But the "someone"
mentioned above wants me to auction off the two Diamond memberships
to this e-mail list. (You're allowed to tell other people about it
who aren't on the list, but I won't be advertising this anywhere
else.) So if you want to make an offer, just fling me an e-mail at
"This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.". You might just get a Diamond membership
for a steal, depending on how much response I get from this. After
people duke it out via bidding, I'll pass on to the "someone" the
names of the two winners. It will all go through me, so you don't
need to trust a "someone" you know nothing about. (Actually, you
won't need to trust me either, since the winners don't have to pay
until after they have the memberships.)

Sincerely,


Larken Rose

Thanks a Zillion!

Dear Subscriber,

To all those who helps out out in our time of need, thanks a
zillion! We are now out of "imminently doomed" mode, and back into
the usual "possibly eventually doomed mode," which is a drastic
improvement.

Just so you know that I'm not just lollygagging around while people
support us, I'll mention a few things in the works. A lot of my
videos are just my ugly mug on a camera, yammering about something.
But occasionally I make one a little better produced, because it's
about an important enough topic.

I'm in the middle of making one called "Unthinkable Evil," about
sociopaths, how they gravitate towards positions of power, and how
they have a huge advantage because most decent people literally
can't comprehend the idea that some people--including people in
power--have NO empathy for their fellow man, and would inflict all
manner of suffering and deaths on innocents, without the slightest
twinge of guilt or shame, if it happens to serve their own agenda
to do so.

Another one in the works is "What Anarchy Isn't"--a short video
covering a few of the most common, and most misguided, complaints
about the idea of a stateless society. Tessa, will be the
"spokesanarchist" for that one.

There are a couple others in the works, including a few interviews
with other people--something I haven't done before. It will be some
interesting stuff.

Anyway, thanks again to all those people who once again dragged us
from the fire, to rest relatively comfortably in the familiar
frying pan again. It's much appreciated!

@#$%&!!!



Well, this is frustrating, embarrassing and humiliating, and I've
managed to avoid having to do it for over a year, but ... help!

Though we've been pretty dang poor for years now, recently things
are starting to look up. But now a bunch of things are hitting us
all at once--trying to keep the house warm when it's 20 at night,
trying to keep the electricity on, the car we use is in sad shape,
my teeth are falling out (literally), we're trying to pay off
Elyssa's braces, dealing with a pile of other bills, and so on. So
I'm flushing my pride down the toilet, and pitifully begging to the
people on this list, to see if there are a few people feeling a bit
richer than we are, able and willing to give alms to some poor,
starving anarchists. (Well, not actually starving, obviously.)
Maybe I need a pledge drive: "Your dollar a day could feed this
poor family of anarchists..."

Anyway, no need to get carried away or anything, and if you're
feeling the pain of this "recovery" too, take care of yourself.
But if you have some spare money that you're just dying to get rid
of (like that's ever true), for my family's sake I'll grovel
pathetically for a scrap or two. (Maybe I should have been an
international banker.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My "snail mail" is shown below, and my PayPal account is just under
the address, "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.". I'm also finally just
starting to get up to speed about Bitcoin. I think it's a really
cool idea; I've just been too disorganized and busy to really
figure it all out. Anyway, I can accept Bitcoin donations sent here:

Thanks so much for whatever you can give. With any luck, I won't
need to beg again, not only because it will spare you the
annoyance, but because I really freaking hate having to!

Question For All Semi-Auto Rifle Owners

: SHA1


Dear Subscriber,

Here is a very short YouTube video I just posted, hoping to do a
little experiment here, regarding semi-auto rifles, and the people
who own them. Please watch it, then, if you deem it worthy, spread
it far and wide.
