The legislation you protest and rebel against seeks only to increase the latitude given your overseers, while maintaining the overall restrictions on your own liberty that, if abolished, would empower you to seek your own prosperity. We believe you and we would be very good at that, mixing both cooperation and peaceful competition, if we were not slaves.

It is not the place of others to tell you how to wage your own revolution against tyranny. We have some suggestions, though — a version of dual power strategy called “counter-economics.” We humbly recommend MLL founder Samuel Edward Konkin III’s small book on agorism, counter-economics, and revolution The New Libertarian Manifesto in hopes you may find it useful or inspirational.
