In e-mails Wednesday to Wired and the Associated Press, McAfee described Belize as a "pirate haven" governed by brutality and fear.
In an "essay" sent to Wired's Joshua Davis, McAfee describes Belize as "a system that functions more or less smoothly if you play by the rules. I am not fond of these rules however and I openly oppose them. This is the root of my struggle here in Belize."
His wrote that the country, formerly British Honduras, is "run more or less along the lines established centuries ago by the likes of Captain Morgan, Blackbeard and Captain Barrow."
"Brutality creates respect; Fear is the means of governance; Extortion is the method of collecting what is due," McAfee wrote. "It's a system that functions more or less smoothly if you play by the rules."
"I have modified my appearance in a radical fashion," McAfee said. "I'll probably look like a murderer, unfortunately."
McAfee said that when police arrived Sunday afternoon to question him, he buried himself in sand and covered his head with a cardboard box. He said he spent 18 hours hiding on his property before fleeing. Since then, Wired writes, he has been "riding in boats, huddling on the floorboards of taxis, sleeping in a bed that he said was infested with lice."
You can tell he is brilliant man by the things he says. Unfortunately drugs have taken there toll. And he has lack of reservation or any since of moral. I have taken interest in this store because I lived and worked on this island for 6 months. I feel bad for the guy.
There is also a lot of other quotes that wouldn't be appropriate for OCN that he has said within the last few years. That I would have no pleasure in repeating. But I have seen enough to believe he is hooked on bath salts and is loosing his mind.Edited by UNOE - 11/14/12 at 11:09pm
