Episode 222 – Lessons in Resistance: Open Source

by | Mar 17, 2012 | Episodes, Podcasts | 4 comments

Can we imagine a world without intellectual property? With the various enemies of freedom finding ever more elaborate ways to control the internet, we may have to find an answer to that question sooner than we think. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we go in search of the freedom of the open source universe.

  1. Well done James .This is one of the most golden solutions to combat the abhorrent evil that is so anti-human and is trying to dominate the very resources we all need to live.


  2. TPTB are not going to back down. Control of information flow is a battle they can’t afford to lose if they want to stay in power.

    The sad news is that, at least for those who remain detectable, they will win. Eventually, as long as they can find out who you are, you will be forced to conform to their control of what you say and how you spend your money.

    But you can fight back. Not through some political action, though. That tactic may succeed in the short term, but it will eventually fail because they have the staying power that you, even when allied with others, lack. No, the only way you can win is to hide. Become anonymous in all your communications, commerce, and travel. If they can’t locate you, they can’t bring force to bear on you.

    Thieves Emporium is a primer on this subject. Using fast-paced fiction as a vehicle to deliver its message, the book outlines why staying anonymous is the only solution and how you can start doing it. Now, with the tools that are currently in existence, and those that are being developed.

    Think Everyman Hacker vs The Deep State. Or Atlas Shrugged brought into the 21st century.

    The Daily Anarchist loved it and called it ‘Barely Fiction’. The editors at The Daily Bell thought it was so good that they ran it as a serial. And one of the directors of the Bitcoin Foundation said ‘I recommend you read this book’.

    Readers at Amazon must agree as they give it a rating of 4.6 in over 100 reviews. Ditto for Barnes & Noble and Smashwords, though without quite so many reviews.

    Get a copy now while you still can. And, if you want your friends to begin to understand, give them a copy, too.


  3. My emails from Sibel Edmonds NEWSBUD were going into my Junk folder without my knowing. I moved them to another folder and they continued to go to my Junk folder. Yes, the powers that be with Yahoo email are attempting to control my access.

    • Why in the world are you using Yahoo for email!??? Or any other centralized service?? (Gmail, I’m looking at you.) There are so many good alternatives.

      If you need a list, go to privacytools(dot)io. I have personal experience with protonmail.ch and do recommend it. Also played with mail2tor, but the jury is still out there.
