The Bad Quaker Staff is made up of several volunteers, all contributing according to our unique skills, to bring you Bad Quaker Dot Com, the Bad Quaker Podcast, the Bad Quaker Forum, and Bad Quaker facebook.

Our primary content contributor is Ben Stone:

After years in the aerospace industry and in private business, Ben Stone was set to enjoy his retirement years, tending his vegetable garden and trying to be a good Quaker. But one thing stood in his way; a vision of the State, distinct from traditional views of government, that no one else was talking about. An old vision reaching back into antiquity, exposing that enemy of mankind and shining a light on chains that bind humanity.
So Ben had a story to tell, that the government is nothing without The State, and he had to show how to dissolve The State while remaining peaceful, and even calm.
But what would entice freedom seekers to spend precious time listening to an old bullet-scarred liberty warrior from an age gone by? Would homespun logic and down-to-earth explanations of economics and history provide a way to express a truly unique view of that old dragon, The State? Could people be convinced that something more was needed than a popular movement with slogans, rallies, and smiling politicians?
For Ben, liberty is more than a fad. For this old Quaker, liberty is a mission. A mission based on truth, with a specific plan, and a specific goal.
For Ben Stone, the Bad Quaker, liberty is the mission and freedom awaits as the prize.


Ben Stone was a featured speaker at the 2013 New Hampshire Liberty Forum, at the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania’s 2013 Annual Convention, and the Porcupine Freedom Festival (PorcFest; 2012, 2013, 2014).
