Financial Repression Is Here, and Bitcoin Is the Only Escape

financialrepression When I warned about bankers planning “financial repression” back in 2014, I wasn’t sure how long it would be before it arrived, or where. And when I wrote about the banning of cash last February, I was worried that the money monopolists were accelerating toward open repression. Unfortunately, it turns out that they were in a hurry and have now withdrawn all currency worth more than a few dollars (US$1.50) …

The Ministry of Truth Opens June 21st

ministrytruth This is neither a joke nor an exaggeration. Everything we’ll cover here has already passed both Houses of the US congress and was signed into law by Barack Obama on December 23, 2016. You can find the entire 969 page bill here (PDF). I’ll be quoting (in italics) from Section 1287. Scope This new organ of the state, called the “Global Engagement Center” is of immense scope. Here are some …

Talk Politics For Ten Seconds And I’ll Know Where You Get Your News

talkpolitics Whether the current furor over “fake news” fizzles or ends in state censorship, there is a legitimate issue beneath all the fear-mongering. Moreover, it’s a problem that has been known for a long time. In daily life, it shows up like this: Have someone talk politics for just 10 seconds, and I can tell you with 80 percent accuracy where they get their news. You’ve doubtless experienced the same thing. …

Screw the Way Things Are, I Want Out

screwthings This is a beautiful planet, filled, in the main, with decent, cooperative humans. And yet, I want out. Give me any kind of functional spaceship and any reasonable chance, and I’ll take it. This place is anti-human. It chokes the best that’s in us, aggressively and self-righteously. I was struck not long ago by a comment of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s, in which he expressed the same kind of feeling: I ought …

So What If It Was the Russians

wasrussians December 16, 2017 This entire episode is a warning of just how rancid the American over-class has become. Is there no one left in the American elite who has some dignity, some class, some measure of perspective? Have they all descended to the level of drunken brawlers? American elites are rushing to create a constitutional crisis as I write this, building up an immense head of steam (there was an …

The Elite et al. vs. Trump et al

elitevstrump-300x198 December 13, 2016 I thought I’d never write about current events at Free-Man’s Perspective. My interests lie in human development, not in the daily crap-fights of politics. Recent events, however, have forced me to reconsider. What finally changed my mind was a story that broke Friday evening in which the CIA claims Russia intervened in the US election, because Putin wanted Trump to win and Hillary to lose. The story …

If Your Culture Holds Grudges, It Needs to Be Fixed

cultureholds Cultures don’t create us, we create them. Those who maintain otherwise seek to collect our sacrifices and use us as tools. A culture is simply a group that passes a set of ideas through generations. Without people passing their ideas along, no culture could exist. So, should we pass ideas along blindly, or should we engage our minds and wills to make the next generation a little better than ours? …

A New Martial Law Is Here

martiallaw

When a military boss is installed as the head of government, displacing civilian leadership, we call it martial law. In the 20th century we expected to see this as a general kicking out of a president and taking over. The 21st century has brought us a variation on that theme, but it still involves military organizations ruling over everyone else.

Politics Is Poison

poison Let’s be honest about something we see nonstop but seldom appreciate: Politics makes life ugly. Politics turns people you disagree with into twisted, cartoon images of what they really are, and it pushes you into degrading and hating them. In short, it’s vile, corrosive, and hate-filled. These things are not “necessary evils”; they’re just evil. We’ve been programmed to believe that politics is how we rule ourselves… that politics is …

A Time for Gratitude

timegratitude

After a long, dark, painful political season, it’s time for us to pull ourselves out of it and reset our attitudes about the world. And there are few better ways to do that than to spend a few moments feeling grateful. All is not bitterness and pain upon Earth, and that’s something we need to remind ourselves, especially because we’re surrounded by manufactured, amplified, and repeatedly broadcast fears.

When Elite Privilege Breaks

privilegebreaks Finding parallels with Rome is a fun topic for writers, and just recently I came across some very interesting ones. They grabbed my attention, and they may grab yours as well. These passages (in bold) are from The Rise of Western Christendom: Triumph and Diversity, A.D. 200-1000, by Peter Brown: [E]mperor, military, and civilian populations alike needed the idea of a “barbarian threat” to justify their own existence. Just as …

Sucking the Blood of a Declining Civilization

decliningcivilization Civilization has to be transmitted from one generation to another. If it isn’t, processes break down and life becomes difficult. Soon there must be a painful reform, or else the civilization will be lost. This is fundamentally the job of families (especially parents), but at the moment that’s not really possible: How many families can survive on one income? And if one of the parents can’t stay home and teach …

Could the Elite Survive Without Terrorism?

withoutterrorism I’ve been long struck by a comment attributed to Adolph Hitler: “If there were no Jews, we’d have to invent them.”[1]Which it seems he did say, though in a slightly different form. This callous sentiment lies at the heart of rulership, including the rulers of our day. Power needs a frightening enemy. The systems that be, after all, are wholly organized around our fears. Without something to be terribly afraid …

Some Truth About Hillary & The Hackers

hillarythe-hackers I’ve been watching ridiculous stories on the “hacked” emails of Hillary, John Podesta, et al, and I think it’s time to insert a bit of reality to the discussion. So, if you have any interest in this, here are some points to consider: 1. Anyone could have hacked Hillary. People ask me, “Do you think it was the Russians who hacked Hillary?” I tell them that I have no idea …

How the Bible Became an Idol

bibleidol Again I am raising a difficult subject, but again, it’s something that needs to be said. And my title is true. The Bible – the holy book of more or less all Christians – has become an idol. And yes, I do mean idol as in “false god.” A book, no matter how good, remains a book and should be treated as a book. A deity is something far different. …

What’s Your Slavery Percentage?

slaverypercentage Very few things in human life are truly all or nothing. Almost everything works on a sliding scale, even slavery. The problem is, very few people have ever studied slavery, leaving them with a few emotional slogans instead of actual knowledge. A Roman slave in a major city, for example, could start and run his own business, might be very rich, and might even become a major intellectual, like Epictetus. …

Why Day Care Is Insanely Expensive

daycare Conversations with young parents nearly always leave me horrified over the childcare expenses they’re forced to pay. Recently, I was informed by a young man that he and his wife pay $225 per week for day care. (For one child.) Furthermore, this is not in an “expensive city,” and it is, I was assured, a really good price. I responded by bringing up the old way of arranging care for …

A Conspiracy Theory About Conspiracy Theories

conspiracytheories One of the funny things about conspiracy theories, including false flag attacks, is how often they are proven to be true. You have to wonder how long the shame-inducing slam, “That’s a conspiracy theory,” will keep working. But that’s not my point for today. Today, I want to introduce a conspiracy theory of my own, a conspiracy theory about conspiracy theories. Here it is: The powers that be – the …

Emerson and Hitler in the Marketplace

emersonhitler I really hate using Hitler quotes these days; people take them as ultimate slams, rather than illuminating thoughts from a bad guy. But that said, Adolph did make a very clear and useful statement when he said this: I have not come into this world to make men better, but to make use of their weaknesses. This is a fundamental model of human action, and sadly, one that is fairly …

Five Core Economic Facts

EconomicFacts Scores of economic figures go screaming across our screens every day, many of them contradicting yesterday’s figures, and perhaps half of them based upon lies. On top of that, we have dozens of economic theorists arguing back and forth. In the end, it’s all too muddled for most of us to make out. We each have our guesses, but none of them are terribly certain. So, this week I’d like …
