FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
C4SS announces additional staff member and a promotion.
AUBURN, ALABAMA January 1, 2010 Center for a Stateless Society The Center for a Stateless Society announced personnel changes today, with the addition of Darian Worden as the third C4SS News Analyst and promotion of Thomas L. Knapp to Senior News Analyst.
Worden becomes the Centers sixth paid part-time staff member. C4SS Director Brad Spangler said Darian is a rising young talent among anarchist writers and activists. When some angel donors came to us with a proposal to make earmarked contributions to pay for his first quarter of work with the Center, we pounced on it immediately.
Darian Worden is an individualist anarchist writer with experience in libertarian activism. His fiction includes Bring a Gun To School Day and the forthcoming Trade War. His essays and other works can be viewed at his personal website. He also hosts an internet radio show, Thinking Liberty, on PatriotRadio.com.
The mission of the Molinari Institute is to promote understanding of the philosophy of Market Anarchism as a sane, consensual alternative to the hypertrophic violence of the State. The Institute takes its name from Gustave de Molinari (1819-1912), originator of the theory of Market Anarchism. The Center for a Stateless Society is the Molinari Institutes media center.
Center for a Stateless Society
One of the last articles raised my eyebrows a bit – anarchists shouldn’t really cheer for a recession because the last time they took that strategy it backfired. At the start of the 20th century they thought that if the state was attacked and provoked into showing it’s “true colors” then people would see how bad it is and get rid of it; the state did show its true colors by oppressing people, but the general population liked this! So cheering for destruction is pointless because it is just those conditions where people will want to rally to a powerful would-be protector like a state.
I’m so glad to hear of this! Darian and Tom both rock. And it is encouraging to see this project begin to flower- to see any humanist political project flower; I hope you’ll keep us all posted.
P.S. Does your receptionist pick up with “Center of a Stateless Society! We help the helpless!”?
Angela Keaton is an organisational wizard who has at different times effectively ran both Antiwar.com and the LP National Committee (or in the latter case tried to against the sexist Taggarts with the nominal authority; she fought 2006 and 2008 all the down). She’s a radical Randian/Rothbardian anarcho-capitalist who’s dedicated much of twenty years of her life to learning how to make libertarian organisations function well. She quite respects your mind. She knows everyone in Greater Libertaria. She has an impressive public personality; for several years she produced her own radio show, and has done at least one good interview for Antiwar.com:
Congrats to both! Go C4SS!
