13 Nonpolitical Ways to Fight for Liberty – Support Private Charity

Our countdown to the dumpster fire of a US presidential election has reached single digits as nine days from now the world will lurch into a decidedly dark political era. Meanwhile, I’ve been giving you 13 better things to do for liberty than voting. By now you should be using Bitcoin, encrypting your communications, and practicing agorism wherever possible to withhold your earnings from the state’s wretched claws. Next up: compassion.

Support private charity

One of the biggest things big government uses to justify its continuing existence is social service. No one denies that the free market will provide goods and services as long as there are willing, paying customers. What’s in dispute is whether or not people without money can be taken care of in a free society. Don’t argue that the poor will be cared for. Instead, show them with your actions.

Give some of your income to a private charity on a regular, recurring basis. This is deceptively difficult to do effectively, since you need to care enough to do proper research to ensure you’re actually helping someone. If you personally know someone reputable who has fallen on hard times, help them out. If not, find a charity you can trust, volunteer some of your labor so you know firsthand what they do, and then give. If it’s a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all the better, since you get to withhold more money from the government, fulfilling the agorist role as well. Keep building the voluntary social safety net, and making the case for abolishing government services gets ever easier.
