Quest CEO said no and went to Jail?

Gee I missed that news story...

So where is Quest today? Gone.

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --

Brian is a brown nosing goon

He is such a puppet! I can't stand that little creep.

skippy

i already think

twice about what i write

I'm not a computer whiz,

but wouldn't an optional internet community without the communist feds be plausible? Based on past nonperformance, it is definitely too much to expect of the puppet U.S. populace to demand Constitutional restraints in government which would be necessary to rein in characteristic Obomba programs, policies and procedures.

It amazes that people of today, as a result of technology, are generally dumber than folks of preceding generations. Blame it on the educators, somewhat, but the freedom of imagination of recent generations has gone missing, and we codgers know why. As a result, the pretense being public safety, in a walk, antagonists of the U.S. Constitutional Republic, inspite of the 2nd amendment, have usurped control of the once mightiest force on the face of the planet and rendered it internally impotent. It would be better identified as The United Socialist States of China. In tandem with the District of Columbia, the label on the inside of my shirt collar is another, constant reminder of that.

Cyril's picture

Rome has fallen, eventually

The Romans already had streets, lavatories, trash collectors, a senate, etc, ... and engineers.

None of those prevented the decay and fall of their empire, eventually.

Here are those WHO BUILT the Internet, way beyond the first ideas of DARPA for a decentralized network of computers for U.S. DEFENSE (at a time where the U.S. gov't hadn't overinflated as far as it does today):

And here is WHO INVENTED the Web:

... for ZERO ROYALTIES, for NONE of any existing governments (but for three universities, initially - Keio, MIT, INRIA)

...

If the people is dumb this has nothing to do with technology - this has everything to do with CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS (see also: central banks, cronies, and rent seeking in the Houses) and at least two of their best intelligence debasement tools:

1. public education systems

2. mainstream medias

Tell the people around you to turn the TV off and to home school.

Peace.

It's not the people

Part of the I.Q. comes from practice and schooling.

It's not the people it's the tools. ("Schools")

More money to schools hasn't helped.
The I.Q. has gone down (to 80 I think from average of 100) and everyone want to cheer?

for some bimbo like shes important while the elite owner's
Keep us thinking yeah team.

We have professional killers as hero's?

what happened to Old value

The internet is almost our last hope.
with out
Ron Paul who will take his place?
Not his son from what I have seen.

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?

I would very much like to see

I would very much like to see an improvement in the quality of the language used in many forums and bloggers' sites but I'm afraid this will only lead to a stifling of thought period.

In a free society you will

In a free society you will have to take the bad with the good...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

That's too bad because I'm

That's too bad because I'm observing that the difference between what is good and what is bad is getting more and more blurred. Being able to communicate clearly is not promoted. Emotion and reaction with limited vocabulary seems to be the norm with many posters on the internet. Politicians use words to hedge and avoid issues. Talk show hosts/celebrities use the power of broadcasting to spew more and more vulgar and defamatory attitudes with their cruel insults and personal mocking. Some shows are mere gossip purveyors. I don't see anything liberating or civilized about the trend and direction society is being allowed to take under the banner of "free speech"...another misnomer.

Whenever someone asks you

Whenever someone asks you where a libertarian free market society has worked successfully, tell them the Internet... that should shut them up real quick...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Got news for yah Judge

The government is interfering with the net, and many people not only think twice before posting, but never post, ask to have what they posted wiped, don't traffic many sites in fear of tracking, and ditched the computer long ago.

I thought

Al Gore invented the Internet.

Actually, what he did was

Actually, what he did was legalize spam.

Nah...I'll still write what I

Nah...I'll still write what I want.

Here's an idea:

Let the government create and use their own internet and leave ours alone.

As it is already-

the First Amendment is only in place for surveillance purposes.

Not ALL people......

some will continue to say what they mean, and mean what they say. Consequenses be damned!!

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

And when they come through on

And when they come through on the gun sweeps they'll pick them up - and hang on to them.
