Is Edward Snowden a hero?
Hell yes! His actions were moral.
Hell no! Put him away for treason.
Yes and no. It's a grey area.

An open letter to Lindsay Perigo

I am not overly familiar with your work, though based on what I have seen of the Free Radical, your opinion on the nanny state and the regard in which you hold the teachings of Ayn Rand, i'm impressed. Thank you for your objectivity, so to speak.
I write to ascertain how open you are regarding the idea of a Resource-Based Economy, and wish to know if you have seen the film Zeitgeist: Addendum (free to watch at www.zeitgeistmovie.com). It is the sequel to possibly the most viewed feature length documentary on the internet of all time (50 million+). A man of your stature and intellect should have no problem jumping straight to the recently released orientation slideshow, viewable here
I urge you to watch it, in fact if I knew how to find you i'd walk in to your office holding a cigarette with a dollar sign and hand you a copy in person :) The system the film talks about is unlike any other system that has ever been tried. Of course in accordance with our individual frames of reference, many would automatically by process of elimination conclude that the system is socialism, or communism. It's a common reaction, particularly given the use of the words "the common good"..any good objectivist would typically run a mile (and I nearly did!). However, however, however, I perservered, learned, studied and derived understanding. I stand proud and ask that you give this document the same consideration. The two following factors I believe you'll enjoy
1) There is no state
2) in this system the individual will flourish beyond any other system that has ever been before
Please watch it with an open mind. Imagine the buildings Howard Roark could design in this system. Imagine the Mag Lev train systems Dagny Taggert would implement. This system is based on logic. It is based on reason. It is based on the application of the scientific method for human and planetary concern. There is no tax, and there is no government. If you like it, or if you at least consider it worthy of debate, I urge to please forward it to potentially interested parties. It's a hell of a lot better than global communism.
All the very best,
