Jeff Berwick, in Acapulco, Mexico, talks with Smuggler, the author of The Second Realm, from parts unknown   Topics include:  

  • Jeff hosts a second interview with a self-proclaimed crypto-anarcho-capitalist
  • Smuggler is the first guest on Anarchast to actually look like how the media portrays anarchists… with a face scarf and voice transcoded
  • How he started with a belief that men should never rule other men
  • How Rothbard’s, “Ethics of Liberty”  pushed him over the edge
  • The two things that are fascinating for personal freedom with computers
  • How computers are a two-edged sword for liberty or oppression
  • Smuggler disputes Jeff’s contention that millions of 13 year old computer nerd boys can defeat the state and the battle is very much, undecided
  • Technology will map out the future — call to arms — we need more people to master technology to win this battle
  • The internet was devised by the state to circumvent “failures” but how the free market has co-opted it
  • Smuggler believes the state has left it alone… “their restraint”, as a statist intelligence operation
  • Jeff has devoted his life to battling oppression and isn’t trying to hide
  • What we can learn from “Anonymous”… if it even really exists… and Smuggler disagrees with Anonymous on some of their tactics
  • “Anonymous” has become a media phenomenon… but they’ve become a multi-factioned freedom fighting civil war that crosses borders
  • The biggest problem with crypto-anarchy is that humans don’t live in computers
  • Agorism is anything that is ethical and defendable…. That is non-aggressive
  • What is a “temporary autonomous zone” and how to create them in your real life
  • For Smuggler, anarchy is “for whom you are loyal too and what laws you want to have”
  • And, anarchy is choosing what group, what tribe, you want to belong to
  • The concept of “voluntary tribes” or, as Smuggler calls them, “crypto-tribes of the mind”
  • How Jeff is creating his own anarchist tribe in “Galt’s Gulch Chile” 
  • Bitcoin is an outgrowth of the crypto anarchist movement
  • and, ya, wake the fuck up, listen to this shit….
