Week of Oct. 16, 2010 – Libertopia Civil Disobedience
I spoke at the 2010 Libertopia
on Sat. Oct. 16 in Hollywood, California and we had some civil disobedience fun. Near the end of my talk about undermining the concept of “states”, I took out a small bag I purchased earlier from Calvin – a bag of pot – and told everyone what I ‘d done. Since I was talking about civil disobedience and living free without asking for permission, I decided it would be a good idea to make the “law” a little less sacred and have the bag of pot, or “controlled substance”, passed around to everyone in the room. This way we could all be “felons” in the eyes of people who think it’s justified to initiate force/aggression against people for growing or possessing plants.
I also walked around the Hollywood Hilton hotel with the “contraband” for most of the day before Calvin bought it back from me. Believe it or not, there were no injuries as a result.
Most people will never be convinced of how crazy the “drug war” is until they are unexpectedly handed a bag of pot, or have the agriculture police bust into their home with machines guns drawn.
Video of my talk and our mass civil disobedience will be posted very soon.
