Cecelia moved to the Shire in August 2011 as a participant of the Free State Project. Since moving to Keene, NH, she has jumped into liberty activism by attending events and providing support to other activists. Cecelia subscribes to the non-aggression principle and recognizes that government has a monopoly on the use of force. She believes that with liberty comes self-responsibility and is a huge proponent of it. Cecelia is a co-founder of Ladies In Keene, along with Kate.
Kate is an optimistic young lady native to Keene, NH. An inclement journey has ultimately caused her to arrive at the conclusion that all interactions ought to be voluntary and the dissemination of knowledge is the only way to ensure liberty.
“You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best of it or the worst of it; I hope you make the best of it. I hope you live a life you’re proud of and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
Ali transplanted to Keene from her home town of Auburn, AL in August 2011. She heard about the activism happening in Keene from listening to the radio show Free Talk Live. Since her arrival she has participated in the liberty media here with regular appearances on Free Keene TV as well as Free Talk Live. Influenced by the economic think tank from her home town, the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, Ali’s focus on many issues is based on a model of economic theory stemming from praxeology, which is the study of human voluntary action. She believes there are moral and practical arguments to be made for abolishing institutionalized force. Ultimately Ali hopes to reach as many hearts and minds as possible by questioning the premises under which our violence-prone system of government exists.
Renee said, “Growing up in the Shire, I was brainwashed by my “authorities” at an early age. It took witnessing a police brutality at age 14 to snap me out of my obedience. From then on, I began encouraging peaceful & voluntary interactions as well as police accountability. I love activism of all sorts, even if it’s just having an open discussion. As a younger female activist, I’m more than happy to be offering my perspective to LIK! I am also still forced to attend that waste of time we call public schooling. Therefore, I have an inside view of the indoctrination camps, which I’m excited to blog about.”
Julia moved to Keene as part of the Free State Project in 2006. Julia also subscribes to the non-agression principle and believes that all interactions should be voluntary. She loves that the philosophy of liberty is not a political position, but a moral one that comes from love and compassion, and is based on the principles self ownership and personal responsibility. The issues she is most passionate about are the War on Drugs and abolishing government schools. She recognizes that the road to liberty is a long one and believes the only way to achieve this is by changing hearts and minds. Julia is also a regular co-host on Free Talk Live and Puke and the Gang.
