I’ve been re-reading Heinlein’s novella, The Man Who Sold the Moon. It occurs to me that agorism needs some ways to involve children.
I’m thinking of an essay contest, or series of contests, posting small gold and silver prizes, about topics like “what is money” and “why is freedom great” and “what’s wrong with government” and “why not go to the Moon privately this time.” Essay contests, art contests, video contests, audio contests, songwriting contests, etc.
Also, some years ago, L. Neil Smith and Scott Bieser had an idea for a space scouts manual that would encourage boys and girls to get interested in space again. I never found the money to make that into a project. But it does seem like there are many practical “merit badge” type activities one could arrange to earn points and badges and certificates of achievement.
Perhaps one could call it “the Agorism achievement society” or something on those lines? Let the young agorists form their own clubs and troups and such.
I’m reminded by the recent story of the young girl whose lemonade stand in Riverside park was banned on account of not being a permitted business that agorism can be of interest to all ages.
