Complete Liberty Podcast
Show that promotes total respect for self-ownership, property rights, and personal choice--amidst the authoritarian/obedience-oriented political and psychological memes in American culture (and elsewhere). Basically, governments and all they entail are the problem, not the solution. Voluntarism (or market anarchism, or anarcho-capitalism) and customary law principles, in accordance with reason and dignity, spell the solution. www.completeliberty.com

A Foundation for Panarchy by Michael S. Rozeff
http://www.lewrockwell.com/rozeff/rozeff210.html
Are there primary and secondary rights?
Run for your life whenever you hear a governmental "official" talk about your safety and happiness...
Does the Jeffersonian rhetoric hold water?
Government's "securing rights" is a non sequitur
Because ideas are bulletproof, it's important to understand their origin and influence, particularly authoritarian ones
How does one provide one's "consent" to the government, while maintaining one's rights? Certainly not by birth and physical proximity
Individual rights defined
Implications for so-called intellectual "property"
Gated communities and HOA's versus governments
Interacting on entirely private property based on the rules of the owner(s)
SamIam's Obscured Truth Network
http://www.youtube.com/ObscuredTruth

Elections make a mockery of choice ("suggestion box for slaves")
http://www.panarchy.org/
Government versus governance; panarchism versus anarchism
The essence of the Red Pill
Tibor Machan's defense of government
http://www.logicallearning.net/libertylaissez-f.html
"Private property" is a redundancy, as is "individual rights"
"Public property" is a contradiction in terms
Voting is a joke; your choices are not honored
"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard." H.L. Mencken
http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quotes_by/h.+l.+mencken
Invalid forms of governance
If you like tyranny, then ~you~ can leave; in a just society, bullies are banned
The Jeffersonian Matrix
Robert Nozick's defense of government
http://www.logicallearning.net/libertylaissez-f.html
Coercive monopolies of retaliatory force will always lead to injustice
Acceptance of false moral premises; the psychology of statism
Holding people accountable for their levels of immorality
