Freedom Fest & AnarchoVegas 2019

Since last year’s Freedom Fest photos took a year to get out, I figured I’d turn this set around in a month!

I had the pleasure of attending both Freedom Fest and AnarchoVegas in July. Unfortunately, I started getting sick at the beginning of the week – Freedom Fest started on Wednesday and I had panels on Friday and Saturday, but I spend a lot of time in my hotel room trying to medicate and rest and take care of myself, so I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted to.

I had the pleasure of speaking on several panels at Freedom Fest, and attending several others, including a great main stage speech and interview featuring Penn Jillette and Glenn Beck.

I’ve been attending Freedom Fest since 2012, and it’s one of my favorite liberty events of the year mostly because it feels like going home. Vegas is a really fun environment for a conference, and there are a lot of people I only get to see at that particular conference.

Every Child Wanted, Every Parent Willing

I wrote a post on Facebook recently that I realized I meant to include here as well.

To be very clear:

I want every child to be wanted and loved.

I want people to not get pregnant unless they want to be.

I want birth control education and access to be prevalent.

I want people to enjoy healthy sex lives without unwanted pregnancy.

I want people to be careful with their birth control, and use Plan B if they think there’s a problem.

I want people to utilize pregnancy tests as soon as their periods are late, and know how to tell when there might be a problem.

Anarchapulco 2019 Photos / Story / Donation Info

This year was my 4th Anarchapulco. It was also my first in which I was a main stage speaker. The previous three Anarchpulcos, I have been one of the official photographers of the event – my photos can be found on my Facebook – 2018, 2017 (on Judd’s Facebook, I was his second shooter), 2016. If you saw my speech, you may have noticed I used photos of Anarchapulco (both from 2017 & 2018) from both Judd and myself (mostly him), as the background images in my presentation.

I love Anarchapulco. Every year has been a blast – lots of fun, good people, good energy, and a little bit of a vacation. I spend at least one day at the beach or the pool, skipping speeches and just enjoying the environment with mojitos and good conversation.

Should Women Register for the Draft? Should Anyone?

“Now the subject is back in the news, and this libertarian feminist certainly feels that this instance of gender equality means individuals being treated equally in the eyes of the law regardless of their gender. I think it’s perfectly valid to observe that women are the ones with the advantage in this situation (because the same sexism that “protects” women in this instance considers men to be disposable) and that liberty and equality will be achieved by striking down Selective Service registration entirely, not by equally oppressing women as much as men. We have an all-volunteer military force, but there’s a … Continue reading Should Women Register for the Draft? Should Anyone?

Libertarian Feminists Are Like Rand Paul, Fighting From Inside The Machine

“I wouldn’t have predicted the change in the Republican Party, and there’s many people who doubt a future evolution in feminism. I’m not writing it off as a concept or a movement. I’ll be here, fixing things from the inside. I’ve got a better chance than those complaining from the outside. Those who hate and fear feminism should work on getting over that. It’s here to stay, and I’m here to make it better.” Read more at The Libertarian Republic. Continue reading Libertarian Feminists Are Like Rand Paul, Fighting From Inside The Machine
