ANYTHING PEACEFUL

Criticize by Creating

SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 by CHUCK GRIMMETT

We all know that we shouldn't discuss politics and religion in polite company. "But," Max Borders says, "we need to talk."

We upgrade our phones, computers, and cars regularly. Why aren't we upgrading our social tech, too? In this FEE-sponsored talk at Voice & Exit, Freeman editor Max Borders inspires us to think beyond politics. We need to pass beyond coercive means of making political decisions to peaceful means.  

The onus falls upon us. You and I need to criticize the current system by creating something new. So, fellow leviathan hackers, let's redesign our politics, community, charity, and workplaces.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
