Machineries of Freedom

Writes Roderick Long:

Two very good things have happened:

David Friedman’s The Machinery of Freedom, one of the most influential free-market anarchist works of the last 100 years, is now available online (in PDF format).

Kevin Carson’s latest book, The Homebrew Industrial Revolution, is now in print.

C4SS Fundraiser: 72 Hours Left!

Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,

Can you help us out?

Today I would have preferred to have been wrapping up the fundraiser to cover the Center’s expenses for last month. Unfortunately, we’re still short of our goal — so this morning I extended the deadline as long as I feasibly could.

We now have approximately 72 hours to raise $660. That’s not a great deal of money, but it’s $660 that we don’t have on hand right now to pay people with. It’s a very, very reachable goal, though.

Plenty of people will see this request via just visiting our web site, in their RSS feed readers, delivered in email via Google, from a link on Twitter and from links that you (our supporters) post in all kinds of strange places all over the Internet.

Let’s be pessimistic, though…

If we ONLY look at the 829 members of the C4SS Supporters group on Facebook (now 830 after I started writing this!) who will get this message via that route, we get an idea of just –how– within reach this goal is…

Yes, many of those 829 will not even read this message. Many of them will want to contribute but be financially unable to. Perhaps some will get arrested by jackbooted agents of the state before they can reach for their credit cards. But if 66 people out of that 829 can donate $10 each, we will have easily exceeded our fundraising goal.

That’s less than one out of every twelve people. Ten bucks.

Can you help us pay our folks? Please?

The Center provides commentary and even *leadership* in articulating a principled libertarian response to news that you won’t find anywhere else — and likely never will from think tanks that get millions in corporate funding. Just have a look at these three pieces by Kevin Carson on the BP oil spill disaster.

It’s your support that makes that possible and makes it happen.
