We’re looking to build a “libertarian society.” The first stage of our plan is to locate 100,000 libertarians to help us spread the Zero Aggression message to a much wider audience. In our most recent count, the new Zero Aggression Project has 1,760 (+677) engaging with this material. You can help increase this number and have a large marginal impact in this launching stage simply by…

  • The Zero Aggression Project needs to raise merely $4,272 in March to cover its monthly budget. Contributions can be tax-deductible, if you itemize.
