The news anchor says, “when he was fighting the Japanese, did he ever think he would live to almost 96 only to be tased, and then shot in the guts from a beanbag round from a shotgun while he was sitting in his chair?” Police tased this feeble, old man, and when that didn’t work, [...]

Detroit’s Amazing Pop-Up Anarchy

Thursday, August 15, 2013 18:50 No Comments

One of the marvelous things that’s been happening in Detroit demonstrates what’s at the core of the free market: voluntary, spontaneous, pioneering markets in the form of pop-ups. While pop-ups have been popular in places like Berlin, Paris, London, and some larger American cities, Detroit has become a major hotbed of pop-ups over the last two years.

Chicken + Waffles = Racism

This is a slightly amusing story in the Detroit media that all started when Nolan Finley, a Detroit News writer, wrote a column defending Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr’s food expense tab being picked up by what few taxpayers remain in Detroit.

Detroit: “There is No Government Here”

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 18:49 No Comments

Even Bloomberg.com gives a plug to anarcho-Detroit in this story on urban farming entrepreneurs. Detroit urban farmer Greg Willerer is right when he notes the city’s lack of government and the capability of people in Detroit’s anarcho-communities to bond and support one other. For Greg Willerer, Detroit’s new urban frontier is a lot like the Wild West: Grow [...]

I remember this book from my high school days, when secession in Michigan had once again become a popular topic, partly due to Detroit’s fall from grace. This morning I came across a heroic 2nd edition (2011) of Superior: A State for the North Country in a quaint and very northern-ish Upper Peninsula coffee shop that sits across from the mighty [...]

I’ve written often on the scams of Big Cancer, and how the medical establishment’s scaremongering has the purpose of securing lifetime patients and profitability, especially within the cancer industry. Here is a very revealing (breaking news) story of yet another fraudulent agent of the medical establishment who has put human beings at risk in terms [...]
