Anyone Following #Spanglergate ?

Some of y’all may be familiar with Brad Spangler. Some of y’all may have been following this surreal story. For those who don’t know who or what I am referring to, here is a brief overview. Brad Spangler is a left-libertarian anarchist who co-founded the Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS) among other claims to left-libertarian fame. On 22 Jan he confessed in a Facebook post for all to see that he molested his daughter in 2004 and said he was going to turn himself into the police. He also implied without saying so directly that he frequents questionable (likely illegal) websites and/or otherwise engages in questionable internet activities. As far as I can tell, he has not turned himself in yet.

Our sphere overlaps less with left-libertarian anarchist types than it does with paleo-libertarians, but it still overlaps some. I am vaguely familiar with Spangler and somewhat familiar with the C4SS.

I don’t have much time now. I’ll add some thoughts and links to some reactions when I have more time. I just wanted to get this up because a lot of people in our circles are talking about it.

      “Why is this person or his pathetic story of any relevance again?”

      I explained why in the post.

      “Our sphere overlaps less with left-libertarian anarchist types than it does with paleo-libertarians, but it still overlaps some.”

      We are an opinion site, but we also have a well established history of covering developments within our “sphere.” If the figure involved was some alt right personality, don’t you think we would cover it? If he was a Lew Rockwell/von Mises circle figure, don’t you think we would cover that? Since he has libertarian attached to his description, and he is friends with a lot of my Facebook friends, which is how I came to hear about this, then I figured it was worth noting.

      Besides, as far as I know, WordPress has no bandwidth restrictions, so there is no harm in passing along a little news.
