A peaceful solution to the problem

by Michael Badnarik

No man is an island – which is to say we all need other people to buy from and sell to. Shopping makes the world go ’round. (Well, actually it’s the huge mass of the earth spinning in the frictionless vacuum of space, but physics is not the point of this article.) Everyone is engaged in commerce in one form or another. The problem is that a small group of elite bankers control how all the money in the world is created. This gives them incredible leverage over the lives (and deaths) of everyone on the planet. I encourage you to watch All Wars are Bankers Wars, which is a forty-five minute documentary that outlines how the world’s financial problems are deliberately created. If you want to maintain strict adherence to this newsletter’s happy theme, then you should wait until tomorrow to watch it.

The crux of this documentary is that bankers only control our money because we willingly utilize their system of fraudulent, fiat currency. Almost everyone who calls me for advice is begging for a non-violent solution to our political problems. I think I may have found it. BITCOIN Here are some excerpts from Why Bitcoin Is Poised To Change Society Much More than the Internet Did:

“The [Internet] only allowed people to talk and shop more efficiently. By comparison, Bitcoin eradicates the government’s ability to operate. Let’s begin by looking at what a Bitcoin is. It is money. It is a new form of money that isn’t issued by a government. Governments don’t have a monopoly on coming up with things you can trade and barter with, and Bitcoin is one such non-governmental barter instrument. The difference between Bitcoin and all other such tokens of value that have been invented over the years is that nobody is in control of the money supply, and nobody is in control of the money flow.

“What Bitcoin does is cut the banks out of the loop, and by extension, the government’s ability to operate.”

Knowing that you should eat healthy and exercise regularly is easy. Having the personal discipline to work out and eliminate junk food from your diet is significantly more difficult.

Many people want to experience the exhilaration of skydiving. Only a small percentage are willing to step out the door of an airplane at fifteen thousand feet. Everyone wants to go to heaven. Nobody wants to do what you have to do to get there. Everyone wants to acquire wealth and enjoy their golden years, but nobody is willing to give up their credit cards and the worthless Federal Reserve Note that is keeping them in poverty. For many years I have accepted silver for my Constitution class, and more recently have made it the only form of barter I accept for my latest book, Secret to Sovereignty. Unfortunately, I have witnessed an irrational resistance to precious metals, and more than one person has indignanantly refused to buy my book because I won’t accept FRNs. Perhaps Bitcoin will solve this problem. Think of Bitcoin as “Facebook for your money”. Perhaps we’ll soon say, “Everybody is doing it.” At least, all the cool kids will be doing it. To wit, my buddy, Tim Frey, is already doing it. And to motivate you to get on that bandwagon, I am offering Secret to Sovereignty for 1/2 ounce of silver if you use Bitcoin to purchase your silver from Tim before the end of April. Simply go to Bitcoin and set up your account. Then send Tim an eMail at tim@rrbrokerageinc.com requesting an invoice for the current value of 1/2 ounce of silver. Tim will send you an invoice via eMail which you can then pay using Bitcoin. Pretty cool, huh? The purpose of this exercise is to throw water on the Wicked Witch from Oz. Legend has it that she will shrivel up and simply disappear. I’m not sure the bankers will cease to exist without some serious resistance, but… it’s still worth doing.   Michael Badnarik was the 2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate.
