We had an amazing conversation with Brent Elias, aka BloodedTheBrave about why he became a musician and what ideas motivate him. We discuss Voluntarism, the Fed and where the world is heading.

Roads To Liberty – The Art of Rebellion w/ Guest BloodedTheBrave

by RJ Parker on June 15th, 2014

We’re very pleased to announce that the Roads To Liberty Podcast has been resurrected this time as a Vlogcast.

Let me break that down for you. “Vlogcast” comes from the root words ‘vlog’ and ‘cast.’ “Vlog” being shorthand for ‘video blog’ and “cast” being shorthand for “broadcast.” So, what I’m trying to tell you is that I’ll be hosting the Roads To Liberty Vlogcast, which is a “video blog broadcast,” on the brand-new Voluntary Virtues Network, created by Michael Shanklin.

Anyway, we’re going to be up to our usual antics of talking about the path one takes from statist to full on voluntarist but we’ll be adding some other interesting elements into the mix as well. We’ll be having guests, doing roundtable discussions and also at times, we will be presenting pre-recorded casts or interviews at the time of our live show as well. It may take a few weeks worth of episodes before this boat is fully polished but the hope is to eventually have this neatly packaged in a feed and to be set up with iTunes and Stitcher and the like, so we shall see.

I actually appeared on the JRevRadio.com network earlier this morning for a roundtable discussion about ‘Force vs. Aggression” and various other related topics. It was a hearty discussion and certainly was cut off by our time wall at 1am. It will be nice to have the ability to grow closer to a liberty / voluntarist community by putting this content out on the Voluntary Virtues Network. This is truly a great opportunity for the Roads To Liberty brand to evolve and to actually start to accumulate a real community– one which can engage in conversation and the free exploration of ideas.

Once the audio file from today’s discussion is uploaded we’ll share the link here as well.

Roads to Liberty has a new home!

Yup, it's real.

Yup, it’s real.

Crazy thing, is these ads are real (but only being run in Colorado state). They basically have the hidden message embedded of, “It doesn’t matter how unhealthy your lifestyle is, literally EVERYONE is able to be protected somehow for CHEAP.” Free access to a valuable asset is way easier than we’ve been making it out to be. Thank God! (more…)

Free Access = No Access

by RJ Parker on November 13th, 2013

I thought it apt to take a look at some common affronts to libertarian principles and the notion of limited or no coercive government to regulate society. 

“The Taxes that we pay as citizens, pay for the programs that the government supports like welfare, ect. If government didn’t exist, poor people would go hungry and starve. Therefore, taxes are justified by their ends.”

Actually the taxes received federally are barely keeping up with the interest from the national debt. Giving a legal monopoly on aggression, law writing, social services, healthcare and many other markets to a single entity who is not accountable or responsible for the results of their actions can be dangerous.  Then, to give that same organization legal monopoly on the ability to create, print and circulate currency in a given geographic region is logically only going to cause suffering and mismanagement of assets.

Anti-Libertarian Mailbag

by RJ Parker on October 22nd, 2013

Hey everyone who’s subscribed to us on RSS!  I wanted to take a moment to let you know that we’re back. I’m kind of the moderator of the site and I was away on business this past week, so nothing really got done here while I was gone. Now it’s my third day back and I’m starting to get caught up. We’ll be getting back to a pretty regular content schedule effective immediately. I’ll actually try to get a full (real) post up tonight.

Thanks to everyone who subscribed to us and to any contributors, send me a message and we can get some of your content up here as well.

Oh, hey. We’re back.
