    Default Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed discusses his philosophy of revolution and 3D printing

    "Cody Rutledge Wilson (born January 31, 1988) is an American crypto-anarchist and law student.[1] He is best known as the founder and director of Defense Distributed, a non-profit organization that develops and publishes open source gun designs, so-called "Wiki Weapons," suitable for 3D printing. [2][3] Wilson has been named one of the 15 most dangerous people in the world by Wired magazine.[4]"

    "Crypto-anarchism or crypto-anarchy, as described by Vernor Vinge, is a cyber-spatial realization of anarcho-capitalism, employing cryptography to enable individuals to make consensual economic arrangements and to transcend national boundaries.[1] Crypto-anarchists employ cryptographic software to evade prosecution and harassment while sending and receiving information over computer networks, thereby protecting privacy and political freedom."

    He's not very dangerous, real anarchists have never taken the forefront in any successful revolution. You cannot deny the power of power, and humans intrinsic nature and desire to use force. You would have to force anarchy on the general populace and well, that more or less makes the whole point moot.

    3d printing is a rather inefficient way of producing guns at the current time, and in many successful revolutions in the 20th century almost all guns and weapons were either confiscated from the enemy, acquired thru desertion and turning entire groups of state armed military units and/or foreign aid. Che Guevara and Mao Tse Tung fought wars and won them with badly armed, lightly armed groups who acquired most of their weaponry thru desertion or confiscation. In almost every situation where revolution is viable, you will get significant desertion from the state military and proper use of military tactics will allow one to acquire weaponry from defeated troops.

    Unfortunately the military organization required to fight wars and revolutions is essentially hierarchical, often despotic and tyrannical. It is generally anything but anarchy, except perhaps the predatory form not anarchy-lite, the Utopian fantasy.

    Well he looks sort of like ashton and that kid from that 70s show had a love child, but additionally, crypto-anarchism? Come on guys, next you'll be talking about enabling economic freedom with magical waves of your penis whilst being overran by an army of idiots with printed guns in dune buggies spearheaded by Glenn Beck.

    They did alongside Socialists - both revolved around each other stronger than they do nowadays. Besides, what is a 'real anarchist'?

    That would be pretty awesome.

    Seriously though, consider that that argument has been used before every major social/technological advance

    "Bibles will be written in vernacular by printing presses??!? Everyone will forsake the church and chaos will reign!"

    "EVERYONE WILL BE HIGH ON POT AND DRUNK CHAOS WILL REIGN!"

    "THE PEOPLE WILL ELECT THERE LEADERS?!??! CHAOS WILL REIGN!"

    Seems Ni dominant, maybe IEI.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...
