Show Notes: 0:00:00 Ashe Oro: You are listening to the Liberty Entrepreneurs podcast, episode 88, Drugs, Love and Anarchy. Let's go. 0:19:00 Ashe Oro: Hey, what's up and welcome back all my fellow liberty entrepreneurs around the world. I'm Ashe Oro and I'm here with one of the best people in the world, and I say that, he didn't pay me to say that, but this is one of my good friends, and someone that I respect so much, and it's such a pleasure to have him on the show. Sterlin Lujan. Hey, brother. 0:37:00 Sterlin Lujan: Hey, Ashe, thanks for having me, man, and the feeling's 100% mutual. 0:42:00 Ashe Oro: I appreciate that. 0:42:00 Sterlin Lujan: Lots of love. 0:44:00 Ashe Oro: Yeah, so Sterlin is currently the communications ambassador for bitcoin.com, and many of you may know him as the psychologic anarchist, and we'll get into what that means soon. You can find him at sterlinlujan.com. So definitely go check him out. 1:04:00 Ashe Oro: Sterlin, if you don't mind, give us just a quick background of who you are and what you stand for. 1:08:00 Sterlin Lujan: Sure. Are you sure you want it to be quick, Ashe? 1:16:00 Sterlin Lujan: Well, most people know that I'm an anarchist. If they've ever checked out my material, or looked up my name on Google, you'll find me pretty quickly. 1:26:00 Sterlin Lujan: But I became an anarchist through a certain set of experiences rather than reading a bunch of books or just focusing on the logic of what it means to be an anarchist. That's the traditional route that most people take. 1:42:00 Sterlin Lujan: Back in 2009, roughly 2009, I was ... actually, let's go back just a little bit further, there's something I want to touch on. 1:51:00 Sterlin Lujan: So, around 2006, 2007, I was an unthinking, slobbering zombie who was drooling his way through life. All I did was play video games all the time. I was a college dropout. I was working on a degree at a technical college for graphic design and graphic arts. But I didn't finish that degree. I quit because I was more interested in playing video games and just living an unproductive life, not doing anything. I didn't have any drive or ambition or passion about anything whatsoever. 2:28:00 Sterlin Lujan: Then in roughly, yeah it was about 2007, I think, maybe it was 2006, I was about 26 or 27 years old. And a good friend of mine invited me over to his house and told me that I needed to try something. So I went over to my buddy's house, and he said, "Here, take this pill. It's going to make you really happy." Well, that was an understatement. The pill that he gave me was MDMA, or methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, which is the street name, or that's the pharmaceutical name for ecstasy, which now a lot of the kids are calling molly. 3:07:00 Ashe Oro: Right, MDMA. 3:08:00 Sterlin Lujan: But sometimes molly can be adulterated and be other things, but that's another story. So I took MDMA and this was actual MDMA, and I had an epiphany where I had finally realized that I could do so much more with my life. I realized that I was a lot more intelligent than I had previously thought. And I also had the insight that I was going by what I was told as I was growing up, I was in remedial mathematics classes. I wasn't really very intelligent according to the public education system.
