The Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS) is an anarchist think-tank and media center. Its mission is to explain and defend the idea of vibrant social cooperation without aggression, oppression, or centralized authority.
In particular, it seeks to enlarge public understanding and transform public perceptions of anarchism, while reshaping academic and movement debate, through the production and distribution of market anarchist media content, both scholarly and popular, the organization of events, and the development of networks and communities, and to serve, along with the Alliance of the Libertarian Left and the Molinari Institute, as an institutional home for left market anarchists.

Understood, but we are not commenting on any individual's motives per se. We are reacting to the knee jerk framing of the shooting, by the mainstream media, that "anti-government = violence," "anti-government = bad," or "TSA = Hero."
From the author, Grant Mincy:
"As the author I can only speak for myself, but I believe the IPCC report will represent the current consensus of the science. More importantly, as a geologist who has worked with people in the climate field, I trust the legitimacy and sincerity of the concerns.
That being said, the methods will now be scrutinized and revised to ensure that the science only gets better.
As always I trust the dawning stigmergic market more than any state/corporate institution any ole day of the week. Only in the true market form will we solve our environmental (and any other) problem."
Some examples off the cuff, IP privileges that socialize costs and privatize profits like sanctioning generic drug manufacturing and raising access costs to technologies.
Perpetual war also bids up prices on first order goods as well as preferences corporate firms of cooperative ventures.
Energy and transportation subsidies also preference one set of infrastructural design priorities over others. The long-haul vs short-haul differentials kill larger extended firms while leaner smaller ones flourish. That is until the state steps in to preference one - the more legible ones - over the others.
"C4SS" doesn't submit content to reddit, but it will respond to questions on twitter.
At the moment C4SS on hubski is one volunteer trying to keep 9 or 10 plates spinning. I am happy to chat and comment, when I can, but hopefully the articles speak for them selves.
So far the hubski community has been great and thoughtful - a home away from home.
