Discord

We’ve recently setup a discord server for Nashua Liberty. Pretty low traffic. Get in on the ground floor and stare at blank screens before others are first to see it!

NFT Domain – Just because

NashuaLiberty.com can now also be reached via NashuaLiberty.crypto for any browser that is capable of accessing the blockchain based domains that can be minted using Unstoppable Domains. For the Chrome browsers, there is an extension that you can install that allows them to access domains created using this technology. It appears that the Brave browser will operate without any additional exentions.

For now, at least the way we’ve set it up, this is little more than a toy as the NashuaLiberty.crypto domain is a simple redirect to the NashuaLiberty.com ‘traditional’ domain. However longer term, this technology or things like it are likely pretty important. Domain name control is fairly centralized. ICANN  was asked to censor all Russian domains  and while they’ve not done so, ultimately as we’ve seen over the last few years, if a centralized power can do something, it ultimately will do something.

While technology like Unstoppable domains will at first glance appear to suffer from the same problem, the fact that the domain information is stored on a public blockchain based on an open standard means that even if Unstoppable were to ultimately block things at the browser extension level, we’d be able to press forward with other alternate solutions leveraging the same blockchain information.

In any case, at the moment, our use of this is not impressive and if the traditional domain were disabled, you’d still not be able to access this site, but it is a fun start to usage of a decentralized naming system.

New Hampshire Liberty Alliance – Bill Review Training

The NH Liberty Alliance is a non-partisan coalition working to increase individual freedom in New Hampshire. They do this by monitoring bills in the legislative sessions and encouraging private charity, a civil society, and citizen involvement.

Nashua Curfew Fails

Nashua business curfew of 9:30 PM failed.

The next time someone chides you about “the fallacy of extension”, listen to Alderman Lopez or any politician as they rattle off the prior restrictions as they justify the next small step at destroying what remains of your liberty. Alderman Jette mentioned that since MA passed a curfew, they’ve seen a leveling off of cases. Wow – Let’s look at that. The MA curfew passed on Nov 19th. Looks like it went up right after and has pretty much leveled out – Amazing!

Let’s compare that to evil NH that does (did) not have a curfew.

Hey that’s odd. We also flattened in pretty much the same way. Note it does seem plausible that reduced exposure should result in fewer cases. The data does not seem to support it.

2020 Nashua – 4th safest city in the country

We can argue about the rating methodology of course but this recent post from Wallethub finds that overall Nashua, NH is the 4th safest city in the country taking into account multiple factors including risk of n natural disasters. Couple this with a similar story from US News that showed NH as having the lowest property crime in the country and 3rd lowest violent crime rate and its not too bad. Of course, statistics don’t matter if you are the unlucky victim of a crime. So, please train and carry a firearm everywhere that it is legal. In NH, that’s pretty much close everywhere – without a permission slip.

Platforms

Many people have decided to try alternates social media platforms or technologies as a result of precedented* interference in elections and information sharing. This is all good and we certainly should support such actions. In particular, Nashua Liberty is currently maintaining a presence on Mewe and Parler. We also recommend that you move away from the web browser platforms that both don’t respect your privacy and which are likely to be the next attack vector. While there are potentially a few good choices, currently on both the destkop and mobile we are using the Brave browser. While it has a cryptocurrency underpinning (the Basic Attention Token (BAT)) and you may find that you enjoy leveraging that feature, the browser itself is quite good at providing tools to speed up your browsing experience and provides tools to help you manage your privacy and security.

Ultimately centralized platforms like Mewe and Parler are seem likely to be compromised. Better alternatives will be needed in the future. Memo.cash is a blockchain based twitter alternative, and while I use it, it is fair to say that many will simply find it ‘not ready’. One platform that is ready is the LBRY blockchain based odysee.com platform. While technical users may want to consider using LBRY directly, the user experience of odysee for normal users has become quite good for video sharing, mirroring of youtube content and publishing of podcasts.

The important thing to remember as you pick a new platform is that it is plausible that whatever you pick today will not the the same thing you are using a decade from now. While that is disruptive, it’s ok.

 

* precedented – this was not an error. In the days before the internet, we all got our news from centralized news sources that told us what to think and made claims of journalistic integrity and unbiased reporting. We had a pretty solid decade of somewhat breaking free from this with the relative freedom of the original internet. That time is drawing to a close. There is certainly precedent for the oligarchy controlling the media we consume and pushing the perspective of the cathedral. What we are seeing is not unprecedented today as much as it is exposed.
