13 Nonpolitical Ways to Fight for Liberty – Independent Media


The horrifying presidential election is over. The outcome, same as if it had been different, spells four years of dark days for liberty, at least on the governmental front. The hardcore liberty activists, however, are gearing up for a long battle, stocking up on Bitcoin, guns, and sustainable supplies, all the while encrypting their communications, buying and selling off the grid, taking care of their own, solving their own problems, and treating each other with respect for their autonomy. They’re picking away at the system by encouraging jury nullification and filming cops, and making sure liberty’s ideas are well-represented in the court of public opinion. The elite, though, still want to engage in a more direct role. Here’s how you do that. Here’s how you push the advancement of freedom to the next level.

Independent media

You doing your best for liberty is a great start, but it’s limited. In order to truly change the world, there needs to be more of you. Sure, regular conversations with friends and family help, and all your various activities will provoke questions. You may even change a few minds through your persuasive online comments. But in order to really amplify liberty’s message, you need a better venue. Your chances of getting anything subversive in anything that qualifies as mainstream media are slim to none. Instead, you need to spread the word of liberty through a more high-powered vehicle. Get your voice in independent media.

If you can produce enough quality content on your own, and have a vision for a unique outlet, go ahead and start a blog, YouTube channel, podcast, etc (bonus points for joining a distributed content platform like LBRY). If you’re too strapped for time or content, contribute something to another independent outlet. Write for a news site (like The Desert Lynx!), guest-host a podcast, or explore other venues to participate. Remember, though: the world is filled with plenty enough terrible blogs spewing regurgitated ideological rhetoric. Make your content quality, and make it accessible to some kind of “normal” audience. Keep some sort of long-term consistency to your production and your voice will be sure to have an impact.
