199173_1005159487628_9966_nDaniel Rothschild – Editor & Contributor

Daniel Rothschild is the smartest, nicest, sexiest, humblest man on earth (and I say that without bias). Daniel believes that the key to freedom is humility (which he has in spades).  Daniel Rothschild has a masters in economics from San Jose State University and will start his PhD at George Mason University in the Fall. Daniel has co-written an article on civil asset forfeiture with Walter Block that will soon be published in the peer-reviewed The Journal of Private Enterprise. His experience in working in politics is limited (though anytime working in politics is enough). Last summer he worked for the Koch Brothers as a Koch Summer Fellow and considers the Koch Brothers as evil as they are Republicans (meaning not at all). Daniel consider considers himself an Austrian economist and is interested in primarily the economics of violence, democracy, and voting. He is a pure capitalist, consistent libertarian, market anarchist, or anarcho-capitalist (please feel free to subscribe any of those labels to him, as they all are the same thing). Daniel also is an administrator on the Facebook page, Statism is Slavery, and has a YouTube channel called DanielTheSexiest, which he says is not a lie since value is subjective.

He is a history buff particularly surrounding American history and the Civil War, he loves debating and discussing politics. He is fascinated by protesting and political activism. He loves and discusses beliefs in all kinds of topics from religion, philosophy, and economics to entertainment, sports, and all kinds of pop culture.

Ethan is a former talk radio show host, with the credit of being the primary voice of the world’s first Bitcoin themed, live radio call in show to air on commercial radio airwaves. In addition, he hosted a weekly current events show, providing insight and education in the context of what goes on in the world around us. A fervent voluntaryist, he currently casts off the notion of political action, preferring instead to seek out change in his personal life, and encourage others to engage in doing, more than speaking.

Today, Ethan works long days and nights in the blue collar world, being mostly contented to seek out maximum value in his own life. Of course, the bug for evangelizing freedom does not die easily, and so, you can still find the occasional writing from this fellow here, on the Political Cure.

Britta is 28 and has been interested in the Liberty movement since reading Ron Paul’s “Manifesto” in 2008. She made the tradition from “libertarian” to “anarchist” in 2013 after seeing Larken Rose speak at Anarchy in the NYC and reading his book “The Most Dangerous Superstition” and would recommend this book for anyone and everyone.

A practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.

Cory is 32 years old, and has been involved in the liberty movement for around 10 years. He volunteered with Justin Amash’s Congressional campaign and converted to an anarchist after watching the election rigging and dirty media manipulations used against Ron Paul. Cory still have some minarchist leaning views, but only in the sense that it is not practical to abolish the government over night without first minimizing it.
