Psychologic-Anarchist, MDMA High Priest, Mr. Rogers of Anarchism, Crypto Connoisseur http://www.sterlinlujan.com http://www.bitcoin.com Bio: Sterlin Lujan is the Communications Ambassador and Opinion Editor for Bitcoin.com. His background is steeped in activism, journalism, and academia. He has worked with Bitcoin.com since 2015. Prior to his foray into cryptocurrency, he studied psychology and clinical counseling. He has a bachelors degree in psychology from Texas A&M University. He is happily married to his beautiful wife Cecillia and they live together in Texas. He is currently working on finishing his first book, a collected works called, Dignity & Decency: Rhapsodic Musings of a Modern Anarchist. History: In 2009, Sterlin was arrested for possession and alleged manufacture of a large quantity of MDMA and cocaine. He was released from jail with a sentence of deferred adjudication probation. After five years, he completed probation and his charges were dropped. His experiences confronting the State and being arrested provided him with the impetus to become an anarchist. While he awaited probation, he started undergoing some critical thinking about the nature of his “crime.” He came to the realization that he was victimized by the State. He came to understand that he was only providing a product on the market, and the State wrongly and unjustly kidnapped and caged him for it. This incident set the tone for all of his future activism, and led him to study authors such as Murray Rothbard, Ayn Rand, and Ron Paul. After his confrontation with the State, Sterlin discovered bitcoin in late 2013. He learned about bitcoin by hanging out with anarchists and libertarians online. He then started writing about the world-changing and paradigm-shifting potential of the technology. In 2015, Sterlin purchased his first bitcoin at around $600. Then he begin working for bitcoin.com part time as a crypto-journalist. He also wrote regularly on blockchain platforms such as Steemit, earning crypto rewards from the decentralized autonomous organization. He has been thoroughly embedded in the crypto and anarchist communities ever since. Work and Role at Bitcoin.com: At bitcoin.com, Sterlin is responsible for representing the company. He is a brand ambassador and community spokesman. He eloquently elucidates the perspectives of bitcoin.com regarding viewpoints on various topics, as well as coloring each talk with his own experiences and knowledge. He regularly conducts keynotes on topics such as the psychology of money, the essence of bitcoin, cryptocurrency utility, governance, forking, cryptopsychology, crypto-anarchism, history of cypherpunks, and the future of bitcoin.com. He focuses a lot on the philosophical elements of cryptocurrency, and works relentlessly to help bitcoin.com spur mass adoption of crypto worldwide. Sterlin has spoken at some of the most prestigious crypto conferences in the world, including Anarchapulco, Blockshow, Texas Bitcoin Conference, Blockchain Economic Forum, New New Festival, Nexus Earth, and Next Block. Sterlin has also acted as an crypto envoy for the community when he addressed the Mongolian parliament at their Ministry of Foreign Affairs office in Ulaanbaatar.
Born Sovereign is a nonconformist's campaign for individual freedom . . . in celebration of the heroic individuals whose actions shall bring forth voluntary communities that are completely free from legal coercion; communities wherein all human interactions are voluntary. The Non-Aggression Principle is an innate social construct within all of us. It is the guidepost for natural law. The principle rejects the initiation of force in all its various forms, and naturally, does not bar victims of coercion from responding in self-defense. Communities based on this principle are often referred to as voluntaryist communities, recognizing that with voluntaryism, the Non-Aggression Principle will be the final arbiter in detailing the type of "isms" that blossom. Our goal is to make clear that social issues of aggression, crime, poverty, healthcare, and environmental abuse are never solved politically; that the proper, most effective solutions will be found in a competitive free market - where individuals can freely pursue and support solutions that help them - as opposed to having costly and ineffective solutions forced upon them by the State. We also raise awareness of issues that affect individual freedom and promote strategic actions that will secure it and a free society. http://bornsovereign.com ______________________________ http://ucmilitia.us "A well regulated Militia" The Authentic Homeland Security A well regulated Militia refers to “the Militia of the several states” and clarified as the state unorganized constitutional militia. The constitutional militia is not organized or funded by government interests, but self-assembled by citizen volunteers committed to the security of a free state. In times of disaster or coercion, these men and women: the Minutemen – may require the support of additional conscientious individuals from their local communities. This constitutionally mandated institution reigns supreme in importance over all institutions, with the exception of “We The People,” in defense of individual rights: those rights that define a free state – as sanctioned by the U.S. Constitution and its charter, The Declaration of Independence. By this, the constitutional militia is said to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.” Political concerns are an individual matter that may or may not promote, yield, or maintain state respect for individual rights. Unlike politics, the constitutional militia should not be an instrument of division. Any militia intentionally organized on race, religion, politics, or participates in political persuasion at rallies, or protests – shall be seen as a civil threat and justly classified as an armed “extremist” group. The constitutional militia is nonpartisan and correctly screens candidates for such things as criminal behavior or extremism but is otherwise unconcerned with their race, religion or political preference. Its main challenge, however, is to overcome the institution’s unmerited association with alleged militia ‘nuts’ and lingering bad press that discourage membership. Should the free state be lost to the political corruption of a police state, responsible citizens shall face the propaganda for what it is, abandon politics for the Constitution, and take up arms for their commitment to the security of a free state. With sizable rank, this decentralized defense shall be a formidable adversary for any enemy, foreign or domestic. A well regulated Militia holds that, in a free state, individual rights are non-negotiable and asserts that the duties of a Minuteman shall always be limited to those consistent with a free state. This commitment sets the institution apart as the authentic homeland security. __________________________ Start or Join your local Militia!
I am an anarchist, voluntaryist, libertarian, propertarian, consentualist, agorist, abolitionist. Lots of different terms that all ultimately mean the same thing. The initiation of force, threat of force, or fraud used against the life, liberty, or property of another is always wrong.
