The New Radical

Making a printable gun landed Cody Wilson on the U.S. government's watch list. Together with British programmer Amir Taaki, they founded a Bitcoin app that allows its users to "go dark" – because for this pair of crypto-anarchists, ensuring freedom of information and challenging economic structures they view as corrupt is mandatory.

Adam Lough glimpses a rarified world, where these new radicals revel in questioning everything from gun control to encryption, even if it means incarceration. Yet the question remains: Are they freedom fighters or criminals? This captivating encounter examines how their distinct group came about and what their existence says about the economic, cultural, and technological landscape.
