We discuss seasteading and determinism this week. And, how to do drugs with Scott and Adam starting with cocaine.

Adam is having car trouble and Scott and his daughter have been sick. What a week!

John McAfee said that if Bitcoin doesn't hit $300,000 in the next three years that he'll eat his dick on live television. We'd love to see that.

Your new favorite Ancap Barber Shop segment, How to Do Drugs With Scott and Adam!

We start with cocaine this week.

Cocaine is bad for your heart and can cause strokes. It is also very addictive as well. Please use cocaine responsibly if you're going to use it.

Make sure to check out the Harm Reduction Coalition for more information.

What is seasteading and why is it important? "Seasteading is the concept of creating permanent dwellings at sea, called seasteads, outside the territory claimed by any government."

We talk about a couple of articles from Steemit. The first is "The value of creating micro-nations on the oceans - a simple case for Seasteading."

The other article from Steemit is "Why All Seasteads will be Anarcho-Capitalist."

Will all seasteads be anarcho-capitalist?

We also talk about the Marinea Project. They have a podcast out talking about the project.

Tanner from episode 19, Net Neutrality and AI, joins us to talk about determinism. Determinism is the belief that all events that happen, either in our brain or they happen to us, are caused by past events so that nothing other than what occurred could have occurred. Using this argument this means we have no control or free will.

What is the difference between determinism and fatalism? How do you view evil people if everything they do is pre-determined?

We discuss Ross Ubricht and the Silk Road.

The Ancap Barber Shop Facebook page broke 300 likes this week. Make sure to like it yourself!

Oregon is poised to decriminalize meth, cocaine, and heroin.

Chelsea Manning is apparently pro-taxes. Stockholm Syndrome? The anarchist Twitter stream was having none of it!

Scott and Adam met Lyn Ulbricht, mother of Ross Ulbricht, and his sister at PorcFest this year. Help them out at the Free Ross website.

Ross's three life sentences appeal was denied by a federal appeals court back in May.

We talk about this whole case along with some interesting information. Were there crooked agents involved with this? Who accessed the Dred Pirate Roberts account after Ross was in jail? Who stole Bitcoin from the Silk Road?

The last legal avenue will be to pursue an appeal to the US Supreme Court, which is a one-in-a-million shot.

And, finally, Scott does take Rodger's side on the Net Neutrality debate, and Adam is fired from the Pax Libertas Productions network (not really) because he's no longer a libertarian (not really) because he supports net neutrality!

We have a special guest panelist Tanner and we are discussing net neutrality and artificial intelligence.

We are going to talk computer shit, so we have to have Tanner on, period.

We just got back from PorcFest and had a blast. Make sure to check out our PorcFest bonus episode. We had the opportunity to meet Lyn Ulbricht, mother of the alleged Dread Pirate Roberts from the Sil Road, Ross Ulbricht, who is serving a life sentence for running a website.

We are considering adding recurring segments to our show, such as one on drugs and one on philosophy. Let us know your thoughts on this!

Scott created a new Facebook group for libertarians in Huntsville, AL. If you're a libertarian in Huntsville, make sure to check it out.

Net neutrality is creating equal access for all websites on the internet. Adam thinks Rodger Paxton of The LAVA Flow podcast is wrong in his episode on net neutrality

Tanner also throws in his comments, and he agrees with Adam that net neutrality is needed. Scott is still unsure because he's just a fucking Rodger Paxton fanboy.

We find out that Adam is actually on a janky-ass Windows phone, so he loses all credibility in talking about anything about the internet.

Check out Yakkin’ with Nick!

Is artificial intelligence a threat to humanity? Tanner explains what artificial intelligence is and why it matters. We get into the details of why this is a big deal.

There are two possibilities. AI could be the best thing to ever happen to humanity, or it could destroy all of humanity.
