Anarcho-Capitalism and Economic Means to Freedom
The practice -- as opposed to the theory, or communication without action -- of anarcho-capitalism is synonymous with what I've been calling the Economic Means to Freedom. The practice of anarcho-capitalism is also the practice of the Economic Means to Freedom.

So what might be "Ten things you can do to live an anarcho-capitalist life now!"?

I've been a practicing anarcho-capitalist for more than 25 years. Yet I find the above question tough to answer. We're all in "different places" regarding our marketable skills, financial situation, knowledge of practical freedom, willingness to take risks, etc.

So let me make a list of more than ten things. From this list, select 10 things you think might be appropriate for you, then prioritize them into a sequence that is most appropriate for your individual situation, and then do them!

1. Identify or develop some activity that enables you to earn money (in an honest manner) that is effectively invisible to terrocrats (terrorist bureaucrats or coercive political agents). Examples: become a professional gambler; become a successful trader or investor, utilizing financial structures like offshore corporations, trusts, and/or foundations; sell "how-to" information related to your areas of expertise; organize seminars/workshops related to your areas of expertise; publish a newsletter; develop a course on practical anarcho-capitalism and market/deliver it via Internet. Check out Loompanics Unlimited for more ideas.

2. Read the book The Incredible Secret Money Machine by Don Lancaster. This book has partially inspired me to create a number of "money machines" that provide me with income streams invisible to terrocrats. Check out his website The Guru's Lair, for an example of an Internet-based business. Also check out Dr. Hewitt- Gleeson's School of Thinking.

3. Study the 'Millionaire Reports' which contain a wealth of money-making principles not available anywhere else.

4. Organize a group of people to meet, share information, and brainstorm the specific things each anarcho-capitalist individual might do. Ideas for new anarcho-capitalist businesses may be generated. Business partnerships could be formed.

5. Improve your degree of privacy. Set up "alternatives" that are more private than your "public persona." Do a search for +maildrop +offshore. If you do some WWW searching and you follow links, you may find several dozen organizations that provide information and services that facilitate the practice of anarcho-capitalism. Check out Paladin Press. Check out DangerousBooks.

6. Learn to operate in ways that minimize or eliminate "paper trails" that provide terrocrats with information they could use against you. For example, use credit cards issued by offshore banks. Find private ways to handle all or much of your banking needs. See the financial institutions mentioned in the first article of this series.

7. Improve your marketing skills. Check out Dr. Hewitt- Gleeson's "NewSell" course at The School of Thinking.

8. Adopt an attitude of constantly looking for incremental advantages in life generally. In exploring Neo-Tech, I find it useful to distinguish between any material with the word "Zon" and other material. I find much of the other material quite useful. Some of the "Neo-Tech Advantages" as well as the information on "neocheating" I find particularly valuable.

9. Develop your thinking skills. I suggest you start with Dr. Michael Hewitt-Gleeson's "Brain Freebie" course at The School of Thinking.

10. If you work for a company, explore the possibility of setting up your own business (doing whatever you're now doing for the company), and having your business provide these services to the company. Note that this is different from being a "private contractor." The company doesn't contract with you as a private contractor; it contracts with "your business," which is an entity separate from you.

11. If it's appropriate for you, and you can do so legally and safely, exit whatever tax systems you may currently subscribe to. As with an e-mail list, you always have the option to "unsubscribe" -- though some instances are more difficult and dangerous than others!

12. Subscribe to the Free World Order and Advanced Freedom Solutions lists. These lists are especially designed for practicing anarcho-capitalists, and aspiring anarcho-capitalists.

13. Take creative action to safeguard assets from terrocrats and other thieves and robbers. Organize your affairs so you own nothing of great value, but you benefit from entities such as trusts, offshore foundations and/or corporations, etc. that own certain assets. Check out Mark Nestmann's site. Also search WWW for books by Adam Starchild.

14. Become a "permanent tourist" (PT) -- wherever you happen to be at any time, you're "just a tourist staying for a short time and then moving on" -- http://www.scopebooks.com/.

15. Check out the free-enterprise financial institutions mentioned in the first article of this series and get involved with them as appropriate. Check out Laissez Faire City. Also contains important information on individual sovereignty.

16. Check out "Counter-Economics" as described by 'The Agorist Institute'.

17. If your psyche includes a wimp that is shit-scared of "the state" or "the government," check out BUILDFREEDOM.COM in general and chapter five of Wake Up America in particular. Increase your personal power -- see Report #TL10: How to Achieve and Increase Personal Power.

18. Learn to operate in a manner such that that you focus on taking actions under your direct control. You want to do things that are directly linked to the results you wish to achieve. If you have to beg others to change their behavior in order for you to succeed, you tend to lose your power. For example, if like Wes Burt you beg "the establishment" to take notice of Peter H. Rossi's "Iron Law" or Burt's "Teflon Topic," the most likely result is that you render yourself powerless. (By his own admission, Wes has been going at it since 1969, without producing any results!)

19. Observe the results -- or lack of results -- you produce and learn from them. Become more flexible. Experiment. Change strategies and tactics until you find what works. And keep improving that. (During the past four years, people have made of the order of $100 million in the free-enterprise sector as a result of information at BUILDFREEDOM.COM.)

20. Discover that you are free and sovereign by nature. Read Harry Browne: How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World and Rose Wilder Lane: The Discovery of Freedom -- both available from Laissez Faire Books. Check out the "sovereign individual paradigm" at the WEPIN Store as well as BUILDFREEDOM.COM.

21. Learn "Freedom Technology" -- the practical knowledge, skills, and methods to live the free life of an anarcho-capitalist; the street-smart know-how to run rings around terrocrats and to outwit them at every turn; the HOW of the Economic Means to Freedom. The many links in this article mostly point to various aspects of Freedom Technology, starting with BUILDFREEDOM.COM.

22. Read 'Deep Anarchy' by Extropy cofounder Max More to discover that the entire world has always been in a state of anarchy. Max More: ""Deep Anarchy" is the view that results from these thoughts; it is the idea that we already live in an anarchy." Mr. More emphasizes that, "There is no "State." There are only individuals acting in a statist manner..." We need to focus on "Bringing About a Better Anarchy."

23. Study 'The Anatomy of Slavespeak' -- to discover the extent to which you may effectively have been oppressing yourself with your own words. Study Report #TL07E: NSPIC Debate #1 to discover some of the most basic factors that keep coercive political systems in place.

24. Become superhealthy. We need to outcompete and outlive terrocrats and their supporters. In the near future I'll compile a compendium of my best health links and references.

25. Study my series of articles on the Economic Means to Freedom . Watch out for future articles.
