Stefan Molyneux and His Critics! A Tom Woods Interview ...

/r/Anarcho_Capitalism's Best of 2013 Award Winners

The votes are in and the winners shall be revealed!
Link to original thread
Best YouTube Clip- Patri Friedman destroys democracy in two minutes
Description- Patri Friedman is renowned for his work in seasteading, and in this speech at Mises Brazil, he provides a compelling argument against democracy that all ancaps should keep in their repertoire. Its only two minutes, but certainly thought provoking. NOTE: Patri's speech did not take place in 2013, but it was submitted to this sub in 2013
Best Comment- YesYeLibertarians comment on "How would Libertarians Deal With X"
Description- Tired of getting questions from newbies like "How would a libertarian society deal with x if y?", YesYesLibertarians puts an end to all the questions by laying down some truth.
Best Book/Paper- The Problem of Political Authority by Michael Huemer
Description- Although this book featured controversy as to whether or not it was written/published in 2013, it publishing date was close enough to 2013, and it got an overwhelming number of upvotes. I have not personally read it (I know, I know), so it's hard for me to give a description, but I've heard its fantastic and you (and I) should read it.
Redditor of the Year- throwaway-o
Description- The award is given to this magnificent man "for defending bitcoin from threats to it's fungibility, neutrality and decentralization. Particular from Coin Validation but also generally by debating statists in /Bitcoin and other subreddits."
Biggest Advancement within the cause of Liberty- Cody Wilson's Liberator
Description- 3D printed guns went from fantasy to reality when Defense Distributed, a 3D printing firm notorious for designing weapons and weapon parts, successfully designed a .cad file with all the necessary parts for a fully operational printed handgun. It's badass, and scares the shit out of our government, so much so that they took the file down, but not after thousands of people had secured it, copied it, and shared it around the world. 2013 was truly the "Dawn of the Wiki Weapons".
Best Quote- Jeffrey Tucker's elevator pitch for Liberty
Description- Asked what his elevator pitch for liberty would be in a recent AMA, Jeffrey Tucker, arguably the most lovable figure in the liberty movement, replied with a magnificent answer, which ended in this great quote.
Funniest Video- Libertarian Taxi
Description- Well constructed sneer at a libertarian fanatic pretending to live in a libertarian world despite the surrounding state.
Person of the Year AND Most Important Piece of News- Edward Snowden and his leaks
Description- Huge on the news this year, Snowden leaked (and is continuing to leak) thousands of classified documents detailing the NSA's mass surveillance program on the entire globe. Truly a freedom fighter and we wish him the best of luck in 2014 in continuing to dodge the US's prosecution.
Best Speech- Thaddeus Russell "Renegade History of the United States"
Description- At New Hampshire Liberty Forum 2013, historian Thaddeus Russell lays down a history of the United States rarely told, outlining how many of our freedoms come from rebels, prostitutes, outlaws, and slackers.
Funniest Comment- A non-hierarchical egalitarian workers commune sets up on a plot of pristine land that is absentee-owned by a propertarian.
Description- Hilarious response to hilarious ancap joke. Good laughs all around.
Best Flair- RonaldMcPaul
Description- "AnarchoCapitalism- The best excuse for not wanting to get married"
Best Debate- Thanquee vs his classmates
Description- Young (British?) Ancap debating anarchy with his classmates. Awesome work, clearly provoked his classmates' thoughts. His thread can be found here.
Best Radio Show- Tom Woods Show
Description- "After outshining Peter Schiff every time he guest hosted Peter Schiff's show, Tom Woods finally got his own show this year (and it's great)."
Funniest Image/GIF- Stefan Molyneux Dancing
Description- Hilarity. Here's one with sound, too
That's all folks! Here's to making 2014 even better than 2013!

FROM THE MAKER OF 'STATISM: THE MOST DANGEROUS RELIGION'

As a follow up/sequel (of sorts) to 'Statism: The Most Dangerous Religion' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6uVV2Dcqt0), I am currently working on a documentary length (60-90 minutes long) production with a working title of 'Voluntaryism: An Idea Whose Time Has Come' (although I am also considering the title 'Liberty Rising: The Philosophy of Anarcho-Capitalism'.
The film will be aimed at people who are either completely new to the philosophy of voluntaryism/anarcho-capitalism, or who are half way to becoming voluntaryists/anarcho-capitalists (i.e. current minarchists), and it will guide the viewer through the philosophical groundwork of voluntaryism/anarcho-capitalism, from the non-aggression principle, self ownership and the philosophical basis for property rights, to the fundamental economics and benefits of the free market (from an Austrian School perspective), the coercive nature of statism (and taxation), debunking all the most common philosophical justifications for the alleged legitimacy of the state (social contract theory, democratic consensus arguments, utilitarian/consequentialist arguments, et cetera) and, finally, it will address anarcho-capitalist alternatives to the "services" currently provided in a coercive, monopolistic, extortionate manner by the state.
The film will be made available for free on YouTube, although I am also planning to release it on DVD (at low cost), which people will be free to copy and distribute as much as they like to friends, family and total strangers.
I will be using plenty of narrated excerpts from both 'For a New Liberty' and 'The Ethics of Liberty' by Murray Rothbard, and I am hoping to also feature relevant snippets from talks/interviews by the likes of Stefan Molyneux, Tom Woods, Walter Block, Mike Huemer, Larken Rose, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, David Friedman, Robert Murphy, Lew Rockwell and others (providing I can get permission from all those people, and the relevant copyright owners).
The whole video montage will be compiled in such a way that each segment flows coherently into the next, and all of it will be "glued" together with narration written by myself but actually voiced by a paid narrator (I hate the sound of my own voice).
I have already been working on this project for over a year now, and I have made a lot of headway, but due to work constraints, I have been unable to work on it anywhere near as much as I would like (ideally I'd be working on it full time), and there's still a fair amount of work to do. In a desperate bid to finally get this project finished and released, I am reluctantly asking for assistance.
The film features an abundance of nifty motion graphics, animation and stock footage (all designed or paid for by myself, except for any free/public domain stock footage I've been able to find) to help visually illustrate the points made in the video. As anybody involved in motion graphic design or animation will know, these endeavours can be extremely time consuming. If anybody reading this is skilled in graphic design, motion graphic design, animation, narration, or any other relevant areas, and is interested in helping with the project, please get in touch at '[email protected]'. I will obviously credit anybody who helps in any way in the closing titles.
In addition to assistance with the technical side of things, in the coming weeks I will be starting a kickstarter campaign, accompanied by a trailer to give people an idea of the production quality, style and content of the film. Basically, in order to finish the film, I need funding, to pay for things like stock footage (which really isn't cheap), a narrator, studio headphones/monitors, a computer capable of rendering complicated, high definition motion graphics (without taking two days!), a decent studio microphone and a website to promote the film (including website development, web hosting and domain name).
I would never usually ask for funding. I worked on 'Statism: The Most Dangerous Religion' for three months straight, pretty much full time, with many sleepless nights and 48 hour editing marathons, but that is only 12 minutes long, and the new film will be 4-6 times longer than that, so I'm going to need help if this thing is going to get finished anytime soon!
'Statism: The Most Dangerous Religion' has now been translated into over 12 languages (the last time I checked), and has already had over 300,000 views (including the translated versions and reuploads). In my humble opinion, the new film is significantly better, more persuasive and aesthetically pleasing, so it has the potential to blow my previous effort out of the water and really make a huge impact in getting the ideas of liberty (specifically voluntaryism/anarcho-capitalism) spread around the world!
Well that's the end of my rant/begging. Watch this space for the trailer which will be released in the coming weeks/months, and please consider helping out with the kickstarter campaign which I will be starting soon!
