Episode-2201- Lyn Ulbricht on Silk Road Going to the Supreme Court

Lyn Ulbricht is a political activist and advocate for individual freedom, privacy and criminal justice reform. She is also the mother of Ross Ulbricht, who was sentenced to double life without parole for all non-violent charges associated with his role in the Silk Road website. This was a “dark web” marketplace designed to protect the privacy of its users.

The site was product agnostic: buyers and sellers determined what was anonymously exchanged using the little-known currency bitcoin. This included both legal and illegal goods, including drugs, although involuntary things that created victims, such as child porn and stolen goods, were prohibited.
Ross has petitioned the Supreme Court to hear his case on important and far-reaching Fourth and Sixth Amendment issues.

Having seen her only son incarcerated for life after a trial riddled with proven corruption, Lyn is dedicated to fighting not only for Ross’ freedom, but for the thousands who have been victimized by our flawed criminal justice system and the drug war. She strives to direct awareness to the important precedents being set with Ross’s high-profile case, issues that will impact the freedom and privacy in the digital age.

Lyn has spoken at numerous events in several countries; appeared on many TV, radio and podcast shows— including Reason TV, CNN, HuffPost Live and Fox; and been interviewed by major and alternative media, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Buzzfeed, John Stossel and The Guardian. She is also prominently featured in the documentary Deep Web.

When not working to raise awareness, Lyn focuses on raising funds for Ross’ legal fight through www.freeross.org

Episode-1176- Shawn Hipskind – Libertarian Candidate for Arkansas Governor

Shawn Hipskind and Family

Shawn Hipskind and Family

I am joined today but the first ever political candidate on TSP.  Shawn Hipskind my long time friend is running for Governor of the State of Arkansas as a Libertarian.  Shawn’s real goal isn’t so much winning but to bring awareness to problems in our political system, how votes are bought and paid for and the concept of zero dollar campaigns.

I want to warn some of our audience that today you are likely to hear many things you disagree with.  Specifically on many libertarian issues like the use of force, the war on drugs and gay marriage.  Note that no one is trying to convince you of anything, frankly no one is trying to tell anyone here how to live their lives.  What we are simply asking is that you at least consider some of these concepts in a new light.

Not interfering with another individuals natural rights does not mean your endorsement of their decision as to how to exercise said rights.  If you want to learn more about official positions of the Libertarian Party you can do so at LP.org.
