in #freedom6 years ago (edited)

When I was in jail for civil disobedience and surrounded by all the great libertarian books that friends had sent me, I realized that we needed one ultimate conversion tool. So I combined all of their best features into one, easy-to-read, 100-page proclamation of FREEDOM! Thanks to the hundreds of people who helped in the editing process, we succeeded in creating the most effective method to fully wake people up in a way that they never want to go back to sleep. The book is now in its third printing and has been downloaded over three million times. Thanks to the many people who have read and promoted it, we’ve been able to do three national tours, giving away FREEDOM! for free. You can get it free in every digital format, including audiobook at TheFreedomLine.com.


Because it’s just 100 pages, quantities over 100,000 can be printed for about $0.30 each, and delivered for about $0.30 each. That's a mere $0.60 to deliver a copy of FREEDOM! So we need just $122,145 to put a copy in every residential mailbox in New Orleans (about 205,000) all at the same time, just before the Libertarian National Convention there, June 30th - July 3rd. Any money raised over that will go towards promotion. All funds earned by this post on Steemit and all project updates here will go towards the book bomb. (You can see the complete budget and estimates from the printer and the direct mail company below.)

The front cover will include a letter describing our campaign to dissolve the federal government. It thanks and promotes the communities that have encouraged this project and made it possible: Bitcoin.com, Steemit, Dash, SmartCash and the Libertarian Party. You can read the letter below. We will also do everything we can to make sure that when the books arrive, everyone will know that everyone else in the city just got one. If we don’t raise more money than just enough for printing and delivery, we will still do a media blitz and as much guerilla activism as possible to reach New Orleans residents. When we show that this can be done in one city, it’s only a matter of time before we can do more cities, and eventually the entire world as necessary.

We are defiantly going to need to have the polling then the formal election on a blockchain.. This parallel universe (fork) of the system will become the primary system when the election is better than the traditional election in every way.

your are good book freedom

That is well said James, nothing to add to that!

Great initiative Adam. if people get involved we could really change things. I sent a message to the inpowermovement people. Im hoping they support this.

I love this idea and I just watched the "Debate" between you and Larken Rose so I like this idea even more. I agree with Jeff Berwick, we have got to attack this from every angle we can and I am not sure what angle Larken is using? I guess no angle, just stay negative and say no way. I wish Larken would work with you, he doesn't have to agree or even vote but at least see that you are doing something and you have and will continue to wake people up and realistically winning this first round in 2020 is a long shot, but at least you are taking a shot and who knows we still have some time before 2020 and the people have had about enough of the 2 party system and you will be allowed to debate with the other candidates so stay positive there is a chance. The LP will make that decision in 2020 if they want you to represent the party. Also, I want to say THANK YOU! I got my second box of FREEDOM books yesterday and I will passing them out. #Freedom4All
Vote Libertarian.jpg

Thank you so much for watching the debate and support the idea! I really appreciate it brother. I wish he would work with me as well, maybe time will change his mind! And oh awesome, glad it came in!

You are a true friend one day he will work with you, because time will continue to run and it will change his mindset. I really like the idea of your friends, you are the world's pearls.

Larken understands that assuming centralized control and authority over lands, people, and resources via the American electoral process is morally illegitimate.

It’s not about a “better plan.” There are lots of “plans” already taking place that are decentralized and which do not assume authority over other human beings via majority vote.

Many say Adam’s plan assumes no authority over others, or won’t require force against non-violent individuals.

What happens when someone wishes to homestead part of a National Park Kokesh personally assigns to a specific non-profit (read his platform)? He claims the parks will be kept “open to the public.” Can the homesteader ignore this and freely homestead anyway as libertarianism dictates he can? Or does he have to get approval from Kokesh or the non-profit, meaning his individual self-ownership (freedom to move, homestead, etc) is being violated.

What of all the other departments, resources, etc. Accurate price calculation and fair “distribution” is only ever achieved by the free market. Economics is a science that has already established that centralized planning cannot accurately calculate prices, and ends up harming individuals far-removed from the law maker’s dictates. Local communities and property owners from the bottom up (the market) decide via their individual market actions. This simply does not work from the top down.

This campaign is, if unintentionally, designed to fail.

Does majority vote grant authority?


By the way, watching the debate now. Not 10 mins in and Kokesh making passive aggression suggestions Larken might be Cointelpro. Dude sounds just like a politician.

You are on the wrong thread. This is about a book drop.

I’m not replying to you, and no, I’m not on the wrong thread. Only nested one deep. Read the comment above mine (the original comment I am replying to).

Every action has consequences. You are both friends of mine. Our actions, no matter how minor they seem to be, have powerful consequences. The objective is what's important. Focusing on it makes one consistent. You, anyone, will be seen as inconsistent, if they do not focus on and further that objective with every single action taken. We may be confused by specific and small actions, but the overall path is clear. Those of us on the same path are friends. We are not merely allies, allies as defined as enemies of our enemy, but we are instead friends who seek to further the same greater cause. My cause is individual liberty. Is that not your cause cause? Is it not Larken's? Is it not Kokesh's?!

/agree The entire system is rigged of course. What's important is fighting it in any way possible and doing everything we can to further the message of individual liberty. Anyone doing that is worthy of our support as friends, and my definition of a friend is someone furthering individual liberty at any cost!

What A great IDEA! I'm in upvote and resteem

Thank you so much!!

how to get the book? is very useful if i can have the book

What an idea!! It's really interesting.

Thank you, hope to have your support!

Hey man you've taken a great initiative and I like your work here. I'm glad you're sharing your work and thoughts here and I wish you a lot of luck in the future :)

Thank you so much for the support!

Thank you more for the great content and fighting for the good and for all of us. See you at the top!

Good luck sir

Fantastic, I can't wait to sidewalk chalk New Orleans with FREEDOM!

Yes, please join us!!

Your resolve is admirable and commendable.
I never before heard of the idea to abolish the Federal Government of the USA.

The average American doesn't need the federal Government as local institutions exist to provide Governance. One question what happens to the US Military if the US Gov is abolished?

thank you very much @adamkokesh
I always hope you and your wife are always healthy, amen
and wish you success always?

Thank you for the love!

I can see myself voting for the first time in over 20 years! And in the mean time staying very busy getting blockchain technology rolled out that we can use to solve all those issues that are going to come up when you do this! Lol

Thank you so much brother! Should be the last time you have to vote for President!

I don't see it as voting for or approving of a president. I believe you agree, a vote can never give someone authority to act in aggression. So even if you somehow were mind-controlled and did a 180, I would not feel personal shame (only concern for you). It is about participating in a poll let the country know how many people believe certain things. I don't believe the traditional vote is creditable either, but I don't see any down side as long as I don't put my faith into that.

Voting is powerful and we do it everyday now on a blockchain. I'm thinking this will probably need to take place on a blockchain anyways or it will never work in the traditional system (you may prove me wrong). Lets do both just in-case .. I'm really happy your using the existing platform, it is a way to have a voice. The blockchain votes can run alongside an election and provide an audit tool. This is a really good opportunity to start the audits!

And yet the platform Adam is running on will prohibit free market price calculation to determine accurate supply and demand for distribution of resources, free, non-permission-necessary homesteading of unowned lands, etc.

Regardless, a non-voluntarily consented to election does not give anyone authority to act in aggression, or even to do what they deem to be "good" things. Majority votes simply cannot grant legitimate authority over non-consenting human beings.

I get used to the income between you and me to vote only they work on their personal interests
