In yesterday’s post, I wrote in favour of “individual security” – that a gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone – and showed the absurdity of the idea that a far away United Nations Security Council can be entrusted to look after our “security.”
A gun, a dog, some good locks – that’s security, if you ask me.
I also pointed out how central bank co-ordination – which is inflationism, a "deliberate policy" – is destroying our “financial security.” As they print more and more paper notes to pay their debts, the value of these papers fall – and the value of our savings decline. Savers lose. Poor people save.
Meanwhile borrowers are all rich companies – and they gain, because they eventually pay back less than they borrowed.
And the entire “fractional-reserve banking” system is based on the fraudulent creation of credit. They create money, and they create credit, too – all out of thin air, backed by nothing solid: like gold.
The credit goes mostly to their friends – who gain.
This is "cronyism."
It is not Capitalism - because the Capital itself does not exist.
They also create “bubbles” – and when the banks crash, they are bailed out with more created credit.
There is a tape of Mises speaking on inflationism, here.
Now, the good question to ask is: Why does The State need so much money? Aren’t our taxes enough?
The answer is: Welfare.
They fuck us to “help us.”
The real reason for welfare is to keep the people “soft” – and this is best understood from the following quote from Andy Duncan’s blog on Bismarck, who started it all:
When Otto von Bismarck introduced wide-ranging social insurance in Germany in the 1870s, he did so for the express purpose of buying the people’s loyalty to his regime. An enervated, spiritless people is far less likely to rise up against parasites who live off their labor, even when that regime is exploiting and robbing them blind, if they have been conditioned to believe that they cannot live any other way.
So – reject welfare.
It is an outright assault on your DIGNITY.
Especially "economic freedom": which is the liberty to engage in all gainful, voluntary and consensual trades. This is vital to your very survival.
Now, their latest ruse is “healthcare.” In the USSA they are calling it “Obamacare.”
Again: Where is the money?
It is “false philanthropy” all over again.
So I say, look after your own health – just as you must look after your own security. Read Joseph Mercola on LewRockwell.com – a naturopath, who gives regular advice on the subject. That is, stay away from doctors, stay away from medicines. Stay away from whatever harms your health.
Now, one area where The State thinks they know better than us pertains to “drugs.” But they have allowed extremely dangerous stuff like tobacco and alcohol, while debarring ganja-charas, coca, and magic mushrooms – all of which are harmless and non-addictive. Their “war on drugs” has destroyed the peace all over the planet. Internal civil wars are also going on for this reason. In the meanwhile, people are forced to consume horrible adulterated stuff like “smack” in India and “crack” in the USSA.
Do they know better than us?
They do not!
Read Ron Paul giving Obama an “F” in Constitutional Law – a subject this fella apparently “taught” in Chicago.
And declare to all who challenge you:
I am responsible for myself and my choices.
There is really no point voting any more.
Freedom must come first – with sound money and legitimate banking. On that, read Jesus Huerta de Soto.
