I hope to see you here some day! I think the majority here would agree with the sentiment that there is no hope anywhere, but if we’re going to defy reality or fight to the death it’s best to do so together. Here in New Hampshire it’s happening.
I’ve been actively partaking in “cop blocking” which is basically utilizing the rights we have to film officials for the purpose of holding officials accountable [or attempting to at least]. In practice it’s probably more valuable in its ability to entertain people (due to the insane reactions police and officials have to accountability) and I feel most importantly its potential ability to attract people to New Hampshire. We can show that there are people here who aren’t lying down in the face of their rights and freedoms being trampled. Alone and spread out we are hopeless to achieve anything, but together we can at least be a real thorn in the side of the abusers.
Check this out (not “cop blocking”, but it’s still accountability, and you can see the reaction of the security officials in the court to us filming, they attempted to lie and intimidate me and Ian, but I refused to stop recording and called his bluff, or it might just be the judge had to give him the OK to arrest us and she didn’t, but either way we won one little battle, on the other hand the case we were filming didn’t really go anywhere- they just continued their delay tactics):
Here are some of the videos of us standing up to the police intimidation when doing our job (filming police for accountability):
It’s mostly JP (he’s like the longest most dedicated ‘cop blocker’ from even before the FSP started), but David Jurist and myself have been getting involved and learning the tricks of the trade. We’ve been joining him on the weekends for quite a number of weeks now. Learning, developing, and helping to take over New Hampshire for those who prefer liberty to tyranny.
There are also BitCoin initiatives (spreading a non-governmental means of exchanging value) we’re focused on. Teaching businesses what BitCoin is, asking them to accept it, etc. We’re getting closer and closer to a point where we won’t be dependent on government to trade. People have “lived” off BitCoin, but the reality is we’re still not anywhere near the point of being able to pay directly for all the things one needs in life. However it’s getting pretty close. I can fly, eat, rent an apartment, rent a hotel room, buy my electronics, pay for car insurance (not that this is mandatory in NH), and so much more.
Ian is very active in getting the word out on jury nullification and don’t take the plea deal. I’m not sure who else is partaking. I’ve wanted to do it, but haven’t managed to get up yet early enough to actually partake in this (I work late often).
There are also other things like Cell 411 people are promoting (great idea, but am not a fan of the implementation because it’s got a central player in control and I feel that is contradictory to what we should be doing/promoting). It basically gives people a means of communicating with each other for the purposes of security. So instead of calling upon the government (which has no obligation to asset in an emergency, multiple supreme court rulings say this) to save you it lets you call upon family, friends, and good Samaritans nearby that may be able to help you. It’s a good demo of what is possible and how one day we may be able to get rid of the government monopolies here that are responsible for security (security-theatre in practice). Other commercial security companies will additional pop up to do patrols as well I’m sure. Similar to what is happening in Detroit (ie government went bankrupt and police response time is so bad that people are having to pay for private security patrols, etc).
