    Guest: Ian Smith - Why Disobedience is a Virtue, Embracing Anarchy & Finding Your Hill

    In this riveting episode of the Free Thought Project podcast, Jason and Matt sit down with Ian Smith, the co-owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey, and the author of "Find Your Hill: Worth Fighting For." Ian gained national attention for his defiant stand against the state's COVID-19 restrictions, keeping his gym open despite the draconian mandates.
    During the podcast, Ian shares his harrowing battle against the state, highlighting the hypocrisy of politicians who blatantly disregarded their own rules. Ian provides a unique perspective on why these leaders acted with such impunity—to show that they are a higher class, not subject to the same rules as the rest of us.
    The conversation also delves into the crucial role of the community and the many people who stood by Ian, offering their support in various forms. We discuss other business owners who faced similar closures and even imprisonment, and the local support they received, including instances of armed defense.
    In a broader context, we explore the contentious issue of advocating for peace between Israel and Palestine. Ian points out the alarming trend of labeling anyone who speaks against bombing innocent civilians as an anti-semite.
    As always, we end on a positive note. Ian shares his unique perspective on how politics alone cannot save us, emphasizing that true positive change comes from standing on principles and being a good person. This episode is a powerful reminder of the impact one individual can make by refusing to back down in the face of injustice.

    Guest: Sal The Agorist - Unpacking Pro-Palestinian Protests, Trump Vs RFK & AstraZeneca Cancelled

    Tune in to the latest episode of the Free Thought Project podcast where Jason and Matt reconnect with Sal Mayweather, aka Sal the Agorist. Known for his influential presence as a social media commentator, agorist, cypherpunk, and Rothbardian crypto anarchist, Sal brings a wealth of knowledge and radical insights to the table. His book "Anti Politics" has already stirred the public discourse, and his deep engagement with crucial issues continues to captivate his audience.
    In this engaging session, we dive into the critical importance of not just owning but actively using cryptocurrency to safeguard personal financial sovereignty. Sal elucidates on the ominous reality of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and how they have empowered governments to potentially control individual financial transactions at an unprecedented scale.
    We also explore a fascinating piece of libertarian history, discussing the possibility that the Libertarian Party was initially started as a humorous experiment by Samuel Edward Konkin III. Additionally, the conversation shifts to current global issues, where Sal critically analyzes the impact of anti-Israel protests, suggesting that they might be inadvertently escalating tensions rather than aiding Palestinian causes.
    We also tackle the recent development with the global withdrawal of one of the COVID-19 vaccines. This episode is packed with critical analyses and thought-provoking dialogue that challenges conventional narratives and encourages listeners to think deeply about the direction in which our society and freedoms are headed. Join us for a deep dive into these pressing issues with one of the most articulate voices in the liberty movement.

    Guest: Aaron Day - CBDC Rollout Hits DEFCON 1 & Roger Ver’s Arrest is Just the Beginning

    Guest: Aaron Day - CBDC Rollout Hits DEFCON 1 & Roger Ver’s Arrest is Just the Beginning

    Join Jason and Matt on the Free Thought Project podcast as they host Aaron R. Day, an experienced entrepreneur, investor, and passionate advocate for freedom and individual liberty. With a rich background in e-commerce, healthcare, blockchain, AI, and clean technology, and recognitions from major news outlets like Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and Fox News, Aaron brings a wealth of knowledge and insights. He discusses the looming threats posed by Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and the broader implications of digital monetary control.
    In this episode, we delve deep into the mechanics and potential dangers of CBDCs, a digital form of money that Aaron argues could lead to unprecedented government control and surveillance. We discuss the recent arrest of cryptocurrency advocate Roger Ver and how it ties into the wider crackdown on digital currencies. Aaron provides compelling evidence of the establishment's drive toward CBDCs and shares his predictions for their rollout, which he believes could happen within the next six months without significant resistance.
    Aaron doesn't just outline the problems; he also offers a vision for resistance and change. Advocating for boycotts over voting as a more effective strategy to combat digital tyranny, Aaron calls for a collective action to halt the advancement of CBDCs, prevent potential global conflicts, and preserve individual freedoms. This is an episode packed with critical information and actionable insights for anyone concerned about the future of liberty in an increasingly digital world.

Great pod

5 star journalism

Objectivity and Clarity

I’ve been a listener for a while now but Episode 122 2/26/2024 is one of the best I’ve listened to yet. The style of the interview and the explanation of the guests were probably the best explanation of Voluntarism I have heard to date. As I try to grow as a person and learn what I was never taught or exposed to, I appreciate candid discussions with people passionate about their beliefs. Being able to listen to a conscripted candid discussion was truly an education. TFTP is always a fantastic listen but for me, this one, was especially powerful. Thank you.
