    Who do you think killed him? Richard Nixon?
    Who do you think supports the cartels. Clue: It ain't Nixon.

    “After the first Anarchapulco, quite a few people moved down there, which became the core of this community. They were a mix of varying idealists, anarchists, heavily into drugs and partying and all that. That was the core of the group,” Mike said. “You don’t get a particularly nice, functioning community. Over time, the community’s broken up and splintered off about a dozen times.”

    Mike said he grew worried about his physical safety. The city was notorious for murders; armed robbery and cartel extortion were a fact of life, he said. But Berwick and others make frequent reference to the ease of living in the city.

    “At one point quite a large crowd came, but they were extremely naive,” Mike said. “Jeff was always saying publicly that Acapulco’s not dangerous, that you can do anything, nothing will happen to you. People believed him.”

    LOL

    When asked about the high crime rates in Acapulco, the blue-eyed anarchist with scruffy facial hair said: 'I'd say it's safer than any big city I've lived in in the U.S., like way safer than Chicago or something like that.'

    Guerrero state, home to Acapulco, has a murder rate of 64.2 per 100,000 residents, more than two times that of Chicago.

    The Mexicans are the spokes of that wheel. Damn right they did.

    Is it just me or are the more hedonistic libertarians just lacking street smarts that other libertarians possess? I admire what he was trying to do, but you have to be really naive. First off, your appearance is a dead giveaway, in that you're a first world westerner living in a foreign land. You are a prime target, just from an image standpoint. Then you push your way into their business, without taking the necessary steps for protection? Umm?

    “They started up a competing conference to Anarchapulco, called Anarchaforko and John continued to be involved in one way or another with the production or sale of plants,” Berwick told The Daily Beast in an email. “Unfortunately, that is the one thing that is very dangerous to do in Mexico as the drug cartels will attack anyone they see as competition and that appears to have happened to John.”

    Let’s hope not. That statement is a bit suspicious.

    You called him a "tool", with a picture posted, so your comment was based (at least partly) on his looks:
    Yes or No?

    Negativity is ignorance, and ignorance is your own personal tyranny. It tells you how to act, how to talk, how to think, and what to feel. You will never see a world without tyrants until you release your own. ~Honored to be Among You

    How does Ron stay so calm?

    *******

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

    It seems like all of these anarcho-utopia schemes in a foreign nation always end up resulting in scams, fraud or murder.

    I had no idea Ron Paul was involved in this "event" and I would advise him to rethink it.
    Ron Paul has gone every year for the past few years. It's in a resort, not in the city itself.

    Here's his speech from last year

    This has nothing to do with my ability to afford a trip to Mexico. You are just fussy because my beliefs don’t align with yours, am I right?

    You are wrong about security - airport security and customs is not concerned about political beliefs. That’s plenty of security to keep me from going. Like I said, I am too poor to spend a couple grand on something like this anyway.

    May you not be as abrasive in the real world.

    Lighten up, Sparky. It was a joke.

    I don't pay enough attention to you to even know what we disagree on.
