This battle is lost; the war for liberty moves elsewhere

In The Art of War, Sun Tzu says:

When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men’s weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be damped. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your strength.

The appointment of Lee Doren as Crasher-in-Chief, his actions since and CEI’s refusal to remove him have demonstrated clearly that Bureaucrash is no longer a place for liberty.

The Art of War

Some of us have laid siege, in an attempt to recapture what we felt we had lost. Drawing back to a broader perspective, though, we must realize that we never had Bureaucrash, as evidenced by how easily it has been corrupted, and thus we have lost nothing.

Let us no longer lay siege and waste our energies on a hopeless cause.

Let us instead go out to the other places which have been and which are being established to foster the cause of authentic liberty. Let us keep our weapons sharp, our ardor high, and let us build community and strength to support the broader war.

And may Bureaucrash rust in pieces.

PS: Goodbye, Bureaucrash. My account will remain until deleted, but I will no longer participate there.

    From what I see, the political action in the fsp has already been consumed by the right. The NH Libertarian alliance takes orders from republican tax group CNHT. Political activism is hopeless

    I agree, it seems like a more productive use of our energies, and more consistent with the principles of Voluntaryism, to leave and build a new community, rather than fight to “take back” what we never had control over in the first place.

    There are important lessons to be learned here for everyone:

    Next time you join a online community, attempt to determine who owns or controls it.

    Who really has thet final say, who has the “keys” to the kingdom, the web site, the accounts? Who controls the community data, and the servers where that data lives? How easy will it be to export the discussion archives move them elsewhere if the need arises in the future?

    I have deleted my bcs account and would not go back, even if Xaq were made CinC today. CEI is my foe.

    Could not agree more.
