Where can I move?

I would like to live someplace…

  • With a high degree of personal freedom (no laws against any sexuality, drug use, gun ownership, etc.)
  • With a high degree of economic freedom (small government, sound money, free enterprise, few labor market regulations, etc.)
  • Where I can actually get in, not a place where you have to marry a citizen to get in
  • With a comfortable climate, Köppen Climate class Csa, Csb, Cfa or Cwa

Places with a permissive attitude towards guns (indicating high degree of personal freedom)

  • United States
  • Albania
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Cayman Islands
  • Chad
  • Congo (ROC)
  • Dominica
  • Guam
  • Micronesia (FSM)

Det är inte företagen som skövlar

Smoking gun

Det hör inte direkt till ovanligheterna att företag anklagas för att skövla byar etc. Nu senast i DN kunde vi läsa om ett sockerbolag som påstods ha jämnat en by med marken i Kambodja. Men funkar det så egentligen? Frivärld Magasin nyanserar bilden en aning. Bra att ha i bakhuvudet vem som egentligen är den skyldige nästa gång en vänsterblaska försöker smutskastar ett företag.

Mandatory pornfilters to be implemented in the UK

censored

David Cameron has announced plans to make ISPs filter their users internet connection from porn. If a user wishes to watch porn he/she needs to contact their ISP in order to have the filter switched off. But wait, there’s more! The possession of “extreme pornography” is also to be outlawed. What is “extreme pornography” you ask? Oh, that’s the beauty of it, by using a broad term like that it can mean practically anything. For now it includes images of simulated rape for example.

The British are the most supervised people I know of, and now it’s about to get worse. Yikes. How long until they start censoring other parts?

Secret court order to monitor you at your ISP

eavesdropping

Here’s an interesting article about an ISP in Utah that got a secret court order and a government server installed in their network to monitor one of their customers.

Make sure you use https, encrypt your mail, etc. Here’s a great page to check out if you’re like me and like to keep your private information private: prism-break.org.
