Lily Forester is stitching her life together
I’m thrilled to bring you this interview, which was recorded almost a month ago before current events somehow became more urgent to talk about than an individual life story. I apologize for that. I can’t promise I won’t do it again. In any case, I love this story. Lily Forester first came into my field of vision when her husband (boyfriend, partner, whatever) was murdered over…drugs? …territory? …just being in the wrong place at the wrong time? It was the first time I’d heard of a real life agorist. It was the first time I’d heard of violence impacting people in my libertarian bubble.
Since the murder, Lily has done her damnedest to be successful and successfully self-reliant. Her story is inspiring, exciting, and enlightening. I really think you’ll like it.
