SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Just 3 weeks ago, Jeffrey A. Tucker -- author, executive, crypto-anarchist and often called the Frederic Bastiat of his time -- announced the launch of his Indiegogo campaign to fund the construction of the liberty-inspired social media publishing platform he calls a "city in the cloud." He professes that freedom is the solution to the world's ailments, and he is putting his money where his head and heart have been for decades.
The liberty community has embraced the project with open arms. Despite speculation of just what exactly the project is, over $100,000 of its $120k goal has been raised through the crowd funding website Indiegogo.com. $30,000 worth of those pre-subscriptions purchased were with the free market crypto-currency bitcoin of which Tucker is a big fan.
The project is epic, and comprehensive - a one stop shop for all things liberty. It promises to accommodate conservative-libertarians, left bleeding heart libertarians, crypto-anarchists, anarcho-capitalists, and even extends a hand across the border to welcome the average government supporter.
"If you care about ideas" Jeffrey promises, "this is where you must be."
Features of the online community are beautifully presented and robust. Each member is promised their own turnkey publishing platform with a custom [YourName].Liberty.me url for videos, podcasts and article uploads. All member created content is available to the entire internet; no pay wall or gatekeepers preventing people from using their voices to reach the world exist.
Also included are online courses discussing the most important books taught by selected experts, a comprehensive calendar to stay up to date with liberty themed events across the globe, a massive library of free e-books, seminars on applying liberty to your own life, a constant news stream, and full access to experts such as Freedomain Radio's Stephan Molyneux, Austro-libertarian lawyer Stephen Kinsella, economist Bob Murphy and many others.
Reputation is embedded into the core social components of the community to keep trolls at bay and offer exciting possibilities to less ordained authors. Each member will accrue "karma" points in a merit system that represents how well liked each member's content, comments and participatory actions are. This feature promises less recognizable names will appear alongside well known ones like Forbes' Art Carden -- ensuring the site stays fresh with new perspectives.
Indiegogo pre-subscribers can choose from any number of perks like an invitation to the ISFLC launch party, Jeffrey's newest book: Liberty.me: Freedom is A Do-it-Yourself Project, custom t-shirts from Liberty Maniacs, a 90 minute seminar with one of the listed experts, an editorial review by Tucker himself, and even a consultation with acclaimed investor Rick Rule.
The campaign is a little more than half completed, but everyone who purchases a membership early will have first dibs on their customizable url, and receive a hefty discount up to 58% off. There is no limit to how many urls you can have.
Liberty.me is not your echo-chamber of political pundits for party politics. It's radical, it's innovative and if you listen to the online rants of Liberty.me's supporters, it's what the world needs to bring liberty back to the center of humanity's attention.
Tucker tells us his project is all about helping people apply liberty to their own life. The days of begging government for freedom are over if Liberty.me gets its way.
If freedom is something you seek, and you believe a change is on the horizon, Liberty.me may be just the thing you've been waiting for.
