Freedom Film Festival brings drama, comedy and history, and this evening’s videos are about an historical epoch in the modern libertarian movement: the discovery of Agorism, the consistent application of libertarian theory.
SEK3 and the Agorists!
More Rothbardian than Rothbard…
Sam Konkin, or Samuel Edward Konkin III (SEK3) was an early movement student activist, who learned at Murray’s knee, so to speak in the Circle Bastiat gatherings in Murray Rothbard’s NYC apartment, the real crucible of the budding libertarian movement. He went on to author articles, publish newsletters and, when people asked him to state his proposed program, if he was opposed to the Libertarian Party, he created the consistent application of libertarian principles in the New Libertarian Manifesto, first published by AnarchoSamizdat Press (i.e., self-published) in 1980.
This was before video, of course, and, as an unpopular figure in the movement after the objectivist / minarchist invasion of the movement and the establishment of the Libertarian Party, there was not much coverage of Konkin. We will feature a few known videos and link to some audio and print works of Konkin’s. Find out what the REAL libertarians think, by watching a little of your unknown history…
…at the Freedom Film Festival… this Friday and every Friday night in the home of the Pine Tree Riot, Weare, New-Hampshire!
