Candy, Kellie, and Antigone at the 2011 Porcupine Freedom Festival.Welcome to Sex, Lies & Anarchy, the show where liberty gets personal.
Who are we? We are three libertarian women from New Hampshire, home of the Free State Project, the world's largest community of pro-freedom activists.
SLA is all about life as a libertarian. We aren't a news show, and we don't really like talking about politics. There are plenty of other shows for that. We're more interested in the social side of libertarianism--how our philosophies shape our experiences, behaviors and relationships. If you've been a libertarian for very long, you probably know how challenging it can be sometimes to lead a life of principle and integrity in a world where aggression and blind obedience are the norm. Everyday activities, such as talking to our neighbors and friends, can become exercises in courage (audacity?) and patience when we feel that so much of the world is wrong. Some of us like this challenge, and some of us just wish we could get through a day without butting heads with people we disagree with. SLA is about finding that sweet spot where we can be vocal proponents of personal freedom while also strengthening our relationships with those who perhaps just don't get it. Yet.
Finally, we recognize that many self-identified libertarians can sometimes hold illogical and irrational views that hurt the movement and block the pathway to truth. At SLA, we like to challenge those ideas that we perceive to be overly-simplistic and/or flat-out wrong.
If you like what we're doing, or if you have any suggestions for our show, please shoot us a line. We'd love to hear from you!
