Hi I’m Stephanie aka Steph (or sometimes “pbandjelly” when I’m trying to be anonymous)
Who am I?
A mom and educator / learning facilitator (do not like the word teacher) who somewhat recently:
learned about the history of our compulsory school system
stopped “teaching” as a sub in the local schools
started working online in media relations instead, for content creators, authors, and businesses in the liberty community
I found this little corner of the web because I was searching for directories of freedom businesses and other places to help me transact with people who believe in freedom, autonomy, and humanity. Just trying to vote with my dollars and all that (and w/ my time, energy and focus).
Specifically HOW I found Shire Society was that I was on Agorist Market in Telegram and happened upon a post in that chat that caught my eye. Someone posted that they were traveling around the country looking for businesses and individuals who do not support the state unless they absolutely have to (and they mentioned, I think, looking for “Shire Society governed”? communities)… anyway, that post had a link to this collection of forums, so that’s cool! Happy to be here. I was at Porcfest last year booking speakers for the AUTONOMY tent if anyone else was there, who is also here, and might remember myself and my friend Jill roaming around inviting people to come and listen to Scott Horton, Gene Epstein, and other speakers we had at our humble little site.
I’m rambling now but I do hope to:
- Make some connections here
- Find some “underground” or “paralell” chats and forums where I can safely shop or sell stuff or barter knowing I’m not fueling the statists.
Whether they’re here on SS, or elsewhere, please spam me with your recommendations for places to find the alt economy. Directories are great like agorist.market and whatever else ya got. Thx.
