Freedom activism from the liberterrain…
In March the Libertarian News Examiner told you about Operation Common Sense, describing it as “a collaborative effort to give the American public a liberty upgrade using innovative media” including web pages, video, audio, press releases, radio show call-ins and TV.
But at the heart of the effort is A Liberty Upgrade for America in which a team of activists and artists are creating a series of pamphlets with a libertarian-eye-view on the pressing issues of the day and distributing them one-on-one to people across the country.
Organizer/pamphlet writer George Donnelly, artist Meg McLain and editor Stephanie Murphy are spearheading the ambitious undertaking and they want you, meaning an unlimited number of pamphlet distributors, to join them.
“I want to give 300 million Americans a liberty upgrade,” Donnelly explains. “We expect to distribute up to 16,000 pamphlets per week in as many as 100 American cities.”
Each of sixteen tri-fold pamphlets will cover a different topic such as education, corporations, environment, central banking, healthcare, and taxes.
A draft of the introductory pamphlet about liberty can be seen at A Liberty Upgrade for America.
There is no lack of vision for this effort.
“This project has the potential to put as many as 30 million liberty-advocating pamphlets in the hands of Americans this summer and fall,” the website declares. “We could reach up to 8,491 people for every dollar contributed. Can you beat that return on investment?”
The “Why” they are doing this should be obvious to every libertarian. Here’s the entire “Why” ripped directly from the IndieGoGo campaign page:
“Times are desperate. This country is falling apart. We’ve got wars, inflation, unemployment, domestic oppression, loss of privacy and dignity, disrespect for human rights and rising poverty. The liberty message is not getting out there and it shows every time you have a discussion with a non-libertarian. We have a historic opportunity to right this, to foster a liberty-sensitive populace. Together we can roll all of this back and create space for human freedom.”
This is a massive and important venture and Operation Common Sense needs your money, your time, your feedback and your help as a distributor in your area to make this work.
So don’t just sit there. Fight back. Help stem the tide of statism.
