Maddy Ice is the personification of my choice to stand, persist, and fight for individual privacy and liberty and not back down in the face of domestic tyranny. I advocate for and invest in projects that promote individual freedom and privacy from a technical perspective. Thanks to a rewarding career in engineering and management, I see things through an analytical lens.
Interests & Opinions
The statements and opinions I make on this website are my own and are based on my experiences, environment, and system of beliefs. Politically I do not belong to a “party”, rather I defend the United States Constitution as it was intended by the Founding Fathers. I promote individual freedom, personal property rights, autonomy, and laissez-faire economics. Also, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, not affiliated with a religion or denomination.
My interests include micro-farming, organic gardening, local supply-chain and markets // FOSS, encryption, decentralized communication platforms, CLI, network administration, BSD, Linux // Spirituality: specifically the authority, love, and power of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of Heaven // Free market economies, monetary policy, cryptocurrency, anonymous methods of barter and trade // Acquiring hard assets: land, real estate, precious metals, business capital // Renewable energy, environmental conservation, off-grid systems, minimalism // History, world politics and human behavior.
Why the name “Maddy Ice”?
The nickname was given to me during my engineering career. I shrugged it off with a chuckle and reasoned that the “Ice” alluded to a tendency to be persistent, calculating, and often impartial (to say it nicely). In 2020, like so many of you, my life was completely rearranged. I was forced to shift paradigms and finally awakened to a sinister world I didn’t recognize. I could not in good conscience sit on the sidelines.
What ensued was a five-month process to reclaim my privacy by encrypting my communication, dumping Big Tech, and ultimately forging a new online footprint which now includes this website.
Whats the point?
To share my personal perspective and opinions on matters of individual freedom and privacy. Along the way, I’ll share technical tools, information, and resources that I believe are vitally important.
1. Promote True Freedom
I have obtained the greatest freedom of all, one this world cannot offer. My personal privacy and freedom are unalienable rights granted by my Creator! Therefore, no matter what happens in this world, I am free indeed. You won’t capture me.
2. Deter Online Surveillance
Know this: power-hungry corporations want to manipulate you. Even worse, government bureaucrats are spying on your every move. Shield your information, speech, and movement from those that seek to profit from you. The good news is Big Tech isn’t so big after all. It may seem like a few global elitists have a lot of power. But they are here today, gone tomorrow.
3. Stand in the Face of Tyranny
We can end domestic tyranny and keep the global elitists and corrupt government out of our private lives. It requires a few simple steps: a willingness to learn, reject superficial conveniences, and establish new paradigms.
Take the journey with me and reclaim what’s rightfully yours!
