Although I do not have a hard count, I would humbly submit that I have had the great pleasure of conducting, or co-conducting, over 250 interviews since I started the practice a couple years ago. During that time, there have been many guests who left me with quite a bit more knowledge than I had before I spoke to them; and, although a much smaller group, there have been a few who have inspired me. At the top of that much smaller group is Liberty Activist, Gavin Seim.
The name Gavin Seim (pronounced seem) may not ring a bell unless you live in the Northwest United States; however, you may be one of the people responsible for the 5 million+ collective views on Gavin’s YouTube Channel, and not even know it. The video Gavin produced where he “pulled over” a police officer to give him a warning went viral, and his checkpoint videos (here, here) are already classics.
One tactic Gavin is particularly adept at is proper Rules of Engagement.
Gavin insists that once a law is passed that violates our Constitution, we need to immediately mobilize and defy the unlawful law, en masse. Gavin doesn’t just provide lip-service when speaking about these matters, as he personally organized the Largest Felony Civil Disobedience Rally in US History in Olympia, Washington, in 2014.
We kicked off the interview by re-capping Gavin’s recent arrest for civil disobedience, and easily transitioned into the broken justice system. We moved into ideas for hardcore activism, then discussed Chicago’s “black sites,” while Gavin summed things up nicely with the idea to just simplify the message. Overall, it was a very informative and inspiring interview… and one not to miss.
