At the urging and encouragement of a dear friend, I have recorded myself reading Samuel Edward Konkin III’s seminal agorist work, New Libertarian Manifesto, based on the text found at

UPDATED 3 June 2009: I have seeded and uploaded my own torrents, and linked to them here. Please switch to seeding/promoting these torrents if you wish to aid in wider distribution.

UPDATED 12 June 2009: Marcel Votlucka has created a YouTube playlist featuring the entire audio recording synchronized with the text of the book. Thanks Marcel!

Text of my introduction to the recording:

Good morning, New Libertarian. Good morning, agorist.

The voice you will hear for the next 85 minutes or so belongs to me, Mike Gogulski.

I am a stateless ex-American. I renounced my American citizenship in 2008 and I have been a voluntary exile since 2004, presently living in Bratislava, Slovakia. As of this recording in May 2009, I maintain a website at, which you are invited to visit.

The words you will hear belong to all of humanity, but they were written by Samuel Edward Konkin III, arguably the initiator of the agorist theory. The book, New Libertarian Manifesto, was first published in 1980, and then updated in 1983.

After two, brief prefaces, the book consists of five chapters:

Statism: Our Condition
Agorism: Our Goal
Counter-Economics: Our Means
Revolution: Our Strategy
Action! Our Tactics

I have attempted to read the text of New Libertarian Manifesto as I have it in hand. Any deviations from the written text – which you can find online at the website – are my own.

After listening, please take action.

Agora! Anarchy! Action!

    Alrighty, I have uploaded the audio-book @ two trackers: Demonoid & Onebigtorrent.

    Please seed if you can! (They are identical files, so you only need to download once, but click both of them to get each tracker’s announce URL’s)

    Hi Mike, I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time & effort to record this.

    I only came into contact with the term “Agorist” the day after this was uploaded, so you have made my introduction to the subject much easier.
    Thanks again & best wishes

    Bitcoin P2P Cryptocurrency

    Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network based anonymous digital currency. Peer-to-peer (P2P) means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions. Instead, these tasks are managed collectively by the nodes of the network. Anonymity means that the real world identity of the parties of a transaction can be kept hidden from the public or even from the parties themselves. Advantages:

    * Transfer money easily through the Internet, without having to trust middlemen.
    * Third parties can’t prevent or control your transactions.
    * Bitcoin transactions are practically free, whereas credit cards and online payment systems typically cost 1-5% per transaction plus various other merchant fees up to hundreds of dollars.
    * Be safe from the unstability caused by fractional reserve banking and bad policies of central banks. The limited inflation of the Bitcoin system’s money supply is distributed evenly (by CPU power) throughout the network, not monopolized by the banks.
