Last week, we covered the action portion of Smuggler and XYZ’s book, Second Realm: Book on Strategy. If you caught the episode, you clearly heard the many issues we had with the list they put forth; but, nonetheless, they laid the framework and gave us something to build off of. On today’s show, Kyle and I read/discuss our redux version of the article. We tell you what changes we made and why. You may also get to hear a few rants by Kyle too. Let’s continue talking solutions! Please enjoy this conversation, share the podcast around, and consider financially supporting

Building The Second Realm: Next Steps (Redux) Author’s Note: To read the original list, please check out Second Realm: Book on Strategy by Smuggler and XYZ. If you’d like to hear our podcasts on the subject, check out #14 and #15. The following is a redux version of the “Next Steps” portion of Smuggler and XYZ’s book, Second Realm: Book on Strategy. Overall, the book is fantastic but we both felt this section was severely lacking in quality. Some of these recommendations were redundant, many were badly worded, a couple were later on in the list when they should be

It is our goal that this series convinced you of the efficacy in pursuing this freedom strategy and motivates you to begin building these free, autonomous zones. If we were successful in our mission, you may be asking, “This sounds great guys, but what the hell am I supposed to do?” Well, in Second Realm: Book on Strategy, Smuggler and XYZ offer a list of 15 potential action items; it’s a good start, but unfortunately, it leaves a lot to be desired, especially when considering how incredible the rest of the book is. Kyle and I will be updating and

Technology is a double-edged sword; it can be used to build and maintain physical/digital Second Realms in pursuance of freedom and autonomy, but it can also be a dangerous tool in the hands of tyrants. Thankfully, crypto-anarchists are far better at technology than your average government agent, which puts us Second Realmers at a huge advantage. Herein, Kyle Rearden and I cover The Blessings of Technology section from Smuggler and XYZ’s book, Second Realm: Book on Strategy. More specifically, we discuss their proposals of anonymized remote controlled access points, anonymized remote controlled defense systems, the role and importance of anonymous

In the near future, freedom pioneers and freedom seekers will have protected temporary autonomous zones to exercise their autonomy to the fullest, without the risk or threat of First Realm/bludgie intervention (some of these exist today, actually). Having these Second Realms will be a giant leap forward for the cause of personal autonomy and freedom, but it’s important to not become complacent: Even if “we” are living free, the First Realm is still out there and is sternly against the existence of “our” free enclaves. Therefore, it’s crucially important to have strategies to minimize risk and personal harm if any

Most everyone is familiar with organized criminal syndicates, whether it be the mafia, the mob, the Yakuza, etc. They are typically viewed as violent, chaotic, criminal organizations constantly under attack and surveillance by the federal government. The latter may be the most truthful accusation leveled, but believe it or not, there is a lot libertarians and anarchists can learn from organized crime as they build Second Realms. This is something none-other than Dr. Murray Rothbard recognized (p. 295), in addition to Smuggler and XYZ, the authors of Second Realm: Book on Strategy. Not only have these organizations existed for centuries,

This past Sunday, I moderated a debate between Adam Kokesh and Graham Smith on the efficacy and ethics of political crusading. I figured I’d put it out on the podcast feed for your delectation.

Back in the 1960s, Rayo came up with the concept of import-export, a form of one-directional isolation wherein a vonuan can maintain access to the servile society’s open-but-not-free trading centers while denying them access to a vonuan’s home base. Reason being, an alternative economy did not yet exist, and therefore, a lot of necessary products and services were not available in the Second Realm. New to vonu/Rayo? START HERE! Proponents of Second Realms also saw this as being an issue and came up with a similar solution in how to facilitate said interaction with the First Realm: a proxy merchant,

In this episode of Liberty Under Attack Radio, I cover some housekeeping notes and then you hear a spoken discourse of a really terrific blog post by Smuggler or XYZ, which introduced their book, Second Realm: Book on Strategy. It clearly answers the question, “Why is building the Second Realm necessary?” You can find the entire blog post following the show notes.
