Sobald die Münze in der Kasten klingt, die Sünde aus der Douchebag springt

2017 is, at least in the protestant Christian tradition, considered to be the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Today there is a reform movement afoot in libertarianism, due to the corruption of the "original" doctrines and practices of the libertarian faith, which corruption has not only brought the libertarian religion into worldwide infamy and [...]

The Enlightened Take Things Lightly

Yesterday I received an Anonymous text message from a 1-976 number that just said "You have a message from Alfred Jarry on 4chan/b/." Needless to say I was shocked, as I had not heard that name for almost a year, and after what happened at last year's AgoraFest I hoped I would never hear that [...]

The Map Is Not The Territory

My personal wish for all of you who are attending AgoraFest is that you become a little smarter, a little wiser, a little more joyful and at peace, and most importantly, a little bit more sane. While these might seem rather modest goals to some of you, this year, and particular for the next six [...]

What’s Your Point?

You've probably observed by now that we want AgoraFest to be a festival of doing, not listening. We don't absolutely forbid lectures, but we discourage them. Why? Because they are almost useless for learning - you retain on the average maybe 5% of what you hear. Group discussions, workshops, projects, debates, and experiments are all [...]
