Some people claim we need the state to educate our children, we say no way! In this episode of the Free Cities Podcast I talk with my wife Kelly about our decision to home school our kids. We discuss resources that we use for our curriculum. Why homeschooling works better than the public option. Why its best for parents to teach their children morality and how to think for themselves.
Mike and Shell DiBaggio are a Husband and Wife writer and illustrator team. Together they have created the Ascension Epoch a shared universe of adventure fiction. It is built on both original elements and public domain sources.
Some of the elements of their fiction are about how a voluntary and decentralized world would operate. Sometimes its easier to accept an idea after we see it play out in a fictional world.
The two books we focus on are "House of Refuge" an award winning book the takes place around a Seastead and a private lifesaving service; and "Salmander Six" a private fire fighting service.
We discuss Seasteading, superheroes, private defense, copy rights, and public domain literature.
In this episode of the Free Cities Podcast we talk with Roger Ver aka Bitcoin Jesus, about what Bitcoin is, its history, present and future. Other topics include private security and why commodities backed blockchain currencies aren't necessarily a great idea.
