Good news. You can now join Claire’s Cabal for free.
The paid membership model never worked very well. Except in one way. It was great at keeping the Cabal discussion forums troll-free and populated by bright, simpatico freedomistas. A friendly environment for all Cabalistas is still the goal. To that end, prospective members are now asked to answer 10 easy questions to introduce themselves and to agree to the Cabalista Code of Honor.
When I say simpatico freedomistas, I mean the Cabal is for any person of goodwill who loves individual liberty and is either traveling the path toward it or fighting the good fight against its destruction.
I don’t want the Cabal ever to become a place where anarchocapitalists try to drive out “impure” minarchists or minarchists attempt to purge “impractical” anarchists. Debate, fine. Brutal faction fights, never. Currently, members range from “fallen off the political spectrum” to “staunch constitutional conservative.” And what do you know, we live in peace with each other. That’s as it should be. We are all in this together against ruthless and implacable forces of tyranny.
New memberships are for six months. At the end of that time, we’ll extend free membership for all active, productive forum posters.
If you’ve never been a member, I hope you’ll join — and join in.
If you’re a formerly active member who wants to renew an expired membership, you can skip the 10 questions. Just send an email to the admin address given at the “Join Us” link.
See you there!
