I’m under no illusions that I, George Donnelly, am some kind of superstar liberty personality that people love to listen to anytime they get the chance. That’s not me. I’m not an Adam Kokesh, a Larken Rose or, much less, a Ron Paul. No, people interview me because Shield Mutual is a neat idea and they see in it a real potential to not just get meaningful help with the government attacks them but also to advance our shared vision for a more libertarian world – to achieve liberty!
Is Shield Mutual actually worth it? I get this question every once in awhile from a particularly skeptical questioner. Skepticism is healthy and I am committed to responding constructively to all serious questions about the Shield Mutual service. Running the agora’s first defense agency is not easy. It’s a lot of work and I’m not making any money to speak of yet. Shield Mutual is part of my life mission. That’s why I founded it. That’s why I keep tweaking it. That’s why I promote it. That’s why I work so hard for my customers. Click through to see my answer.
We have a vision for Shield Mutual that goes beyond our protective services. We have a vision and a long-term strategy for achieving the stateless society. Shield Mutual is not just a very valuable service that you need to have right now. It is also a vector for achieving liberty over the long term. It’s not enough to say, “Hey! Great idea man!” That’s helpful and welcome but if you are seeking a freer and more just society for yourself, your kids and the rest of humanity, then you need to become a member of Shield Mutual. We have plans starting from just $50 per year. Sign up today.
You know Shield Mutual as a defense agency, insurance company, mutual aid society or some mix of all three. But here’s a new way to think of what we do. It’s social defense. We’re protecting the weak from the strong, the vulnerable from the seemingly invulnerable, the disadvantaged from the over-advantaged and the minority from the majority.
We’re thrilled to announce that the long-promised Shield Mutual Forum is now ready! The forum is a welcoming place where agorists, friends, allies and trading partners gather to draw up plans for advancing our shared vision. We come up with new ideas, business models, projects, deals and agorist enterprises in an environment free of personal attacks but full of patience, tolerance, understanding and support.
As regular readers of the Shield Mutual blog know, Adam Kokesh is a customer of ours. We acted in his defense upon his instructions after his 18 May 2013 arrest, very briefly after his 8 June 2013 arrest and again recently after his 9 July 2013 arrest. Adam Kokesh is a valued customer of Shield Mutual. Here is a whole rundown of the legal defense fund we created, promoted and administered for Adam. Money is a sensitive topic and Shield Mutual is committed to operating with transparency and integrity.
Your life revolves around you. When governments attack, what happens is outside of your direct control. My intention in this video is to help you prepare for these situations, but not to scare you.
Shield Mutual has been the subject of considerable liberty community media coverage over the last two months. Here are some of the interviews and articles. Perhaps you would like to cover us as well. Call or email George Donnelly to set up an appointment. [email protected] +1 (215) 360-3513.
When a fellow Shield Mutual member is attacked, we must all hang together in support of this person’s freedom and sovereignty. Adam Kokesh was arrested at his home at 7:45PM Eastern Tue 09 Jul 2013 by US Park Police (Homeland Security) and Herndon, Virgina police. These thugs deployed a battering ram against Adam’s front door and a flashbang (stun grenade) to his foyer. A light armored vehicle and two low-flying helicopters barricaded the street. More than 20 SWAT goons surrounded the house as well as other associated thugs. They trained rifles on Adam and his business team as they were being handcuffed. They ransacked Adam’s home.
Before we can do anything, we must believe in something. We have to know our burning desire, our passion, our individual goal or mission. That must inform what we do. If you’re waiting for something to come along, if you’re looking to get approval from other people, then you’re on the wrong track. Center your activism and business on yourself.
