Courtenay Blackburn (Libertarian Socialist)

What you said at the start of the video was that the USSR funded socialists around the world and spread the teachings of Marx which is untrue as it was the teachings of Lenin who reevaluated Marx's work and created a new doctrine of his own. As it goes for the funding of socialism around the world, the USSR did not have the economic strength to do so because it's economy was decimated in WW2 and could at best provide token support and at worst act like a counter-revolutionary force to socialist movements (Revolutionary Catalonia is one example).

Capitalism uses market pricing to compare goods, but this ‘law of equivalence’, also allows us to compare people according to various external criteria and this rankism has been one of the key characteristics of modernity.

Peer to peer relationaly, by contrast, is based on the principle of Equipotentiality:

“This means that everyone can potentially cooperate in a project, that no authority can pre-judge the ability to cooperate, but that the quality of cooperation-through-contributions is then judged by the community of peers, i.e. through Communal Validation. In equipotential projects, participants self-select themselves to the module to which they feel able to contribute.” Persons are therefore seen as a varied collection of capacities, in some of which the person can excell over some others, but there is no overall ranking as compared to others.

The law of equivalence, which has dominated the modern period, is explained very well by anthropologist Harry Walker in this talk on the “Anthropology of the Common”.

ISIL has had its main supply route cut off by Libertarian Socialists who were (and still are) out numbered and out gunned.

This was done only because the YPG, YPJ and their allies have something that is really worth defending and that is real democracy (power of the demos).

NZ has troops in Iraq but only for hollow imperalist reasons, not for "national security" or "democracy". We are not fighting for "democracy" in any meaningful sense of the word, we are fighting for a foreign oligarchy and so our fight has no moral backing while we fight against a morally bankrupt ISIL.

We have not fought for democracy nor have we cut off the main supply route of an enemy of democracy, that has only been done by the YPG, YPJ, their allies and the people of Rojava.

An interesting quote for any anti-Libertarians out there:

‘One gratifying aspect of our rise to some prominence is that, for the first time in my memory, we, “our side,” had captured a crucial word from the enemy . . . “Libertari­ans” . . . had long been simply a polite word for left-wing anarchists, that is for anti-private property anarchists, either of the communist or syndicalist variety. But now we had taken it over. . .’ [ Murray Rothbard - The Betrayal of the American Right, p. 83]

Hitler was "Austrian-born" so he must be a follower of the "Austrian School" of economic thought.

It is very unfortunate and saddening to hear that Casper Bowden, a champion for privacy and human rights has passed away.

Technology industry figures pay tribute to Caspar Bowden, a renowned digital privacy advocate, who has died of cancer.

Who cares about the charging speed, it's the abundance of aluminum that makes it a promising development, although I wouldn't be concerned about the low voltage any way as you can put more cells in series.
