Send in the Libertarians; They’re Already Here

You’ve probably heard by now of the Free State Project, the effort to get libertarians to move to New Hampshire and turn it into the most free place possible. As I exited New Hampshire

I spent some time in the city of Keene

, where the Free Keene movement has become the most visible, civil disobedience-minded cell of the FSP. This is not to most critical take on the effort that you’ll ever read, but I hope it’s a good picture of who these activists are. And a point I wanted to make was that, in the Great Recession, the collapse of trust in authority is taking many, many forms – people are not banding together under the banner of government.
