The votes are in and the winners shall be revealed! Link to original thread Best YouTube Clip- Patri Friedman destroys democracy in two minutes Description- Patri Friedman is renowned for his work in seasteading, and in this speech at Mises Brazil, he provides a compelling argument against democracy that all ancaps should keep in their repertoire. Its only two minutes, but certainly thought provoking. NOTE: Patri's speech did not take place in 2013, but it was submitted to this sub in 2013 Best Comment- YesYeLibertarians comment on "How would Libertarians Deal With X" Description- Tired of getting questions from newbies like "How would a libertarian society deal with x if y?", YesYesLibertarians puts an end to all the questions by laying down some truth. Best Book/Paper- The Problem of Political Authority by Michael Huemer Description- Although this book featured controversy as to whether or not it was written/published in 2013, it publishing date was close enough to 2013, and it got an overwhelming number of upvotes. I have not personally read it (I know, I know), so it's hard for me to give a description, but I've heard its fantastic and you (and I) should read it. Redditor of the Year- throwaway-o Description- The award is given to this magnificent man "for defending bitcoin from threats to it's fungibility, neutrality and decentralization. Particular from Coin Validation but also generally by debating statists in /Bitcoin and other subreddits." Biggest Advancement within the cause of Liberty- Cody Wilson's Liberator Description- 3D printed guns went from fantasy to reality when Defense Distributed, a 3D printing firm notorious for designing weapons and weapon parts, successfully designed a .cad file with all the necessary parts for a fully operational printed handgun. It's badass, and scares theshitout of our government, so much so that they took the file down, but not after thousands of people had secured it, copied it, and shared it around the world. 2013 was truly the "Dawn of the Wiki Weapons". Best Quote- Jeffrey Tucker's elevator pitch for Liberty Description- Asked what his elevator pitch for liberty would be in a recent AMA, Jeffrey Tucker, arguably the most lovable figure in the liberty movement, replied with a magnificent answer, which ended in this great quote.

Best Speech- Thaddeus Russell "Renegade History of the United States" Description- At New Hampshire Liberty Forum 2013, historian Thaddeus Russell lays down a history of the United States rarely told, outlining how many of our freedoms come from rebels, prostitutes, outlaws, and slackers. Funniest Comment- A non-hierarchical egalitarian workers commune sets up on a plot of pristine land that is absentee-owned by a propertarian. Description- Hilarious response to hilarious ancap joke. Good laughs all around. Best Flair- RonaldMcPaul Description- "AnarchoCapitalism- The best excuse for not wanting to get married" Best Debate- Thanquee vs his classmates Description- Young (British?)

Funniest Image/GIF- Stefan Molyneux Dancing Description- Hilarity. Here's one with sound, too That's all folks! Here's to making 2014 even better than 2013!
Does Peter schiff's argument against bitcoin come from his vested interest in gold?
So I'm not (yet) taking a position in this argument, but I do have some questions. On the one hand there's the bitcoin community and users (and Stefan Molyneux), and then there's Peter schiff and other libertarians. Peter Schiff points out that beside some technical arguments a lot of proponents of bitcoin have a vested interst in them because they own some (like the dotcom bubble). But I can't stop thinking that this is also true the other way around. Every dollar going to bitcoin isn't going into gold, being his preferred currency. Also, so his major objection with bitcoin is that it's missing 'intrinsic' value. Is that really a valid argument here? I know that that is empirically how things came about, but is it also really nessecary for a currency? Stefan hosted some of Peter's shows, so they must really appreciate eachother. I would love to see a debate between the two on this topic. What do you guys think?
