Chuck Hammill, RIP

Brad Linaweaver and J. Kent Hastings regret to inform the readers of Prometheus that long time libertarian activist Chuck Hammill died in December of 2006. As close friends of Chuck, Brad and Kent are writing a tribute to him for a future issue of Prometheus.

Chuck’s contributions to the movement were significant. As a MENSA member and Discordian he was constantly finding clever ways to fight Our Enemy, The State. He appears as himself in Chapter 11 of Linaweaver and Hastings Anarquia. Chuck delivered a speech at the Future of Freedom conference in November, 1987 that later became the famous essay &lquo;From Crossbows To Cryptography: Thwarting The State With Technology”. He had an outrageous sense of humor and a genuine concern for liberty. He is sorely missed.
