"If You Can't See It, I Can't Help You" | Bill Holter​

The US debt crisis is coming to a head, says Bill Holter ( The only solution is to print more currency and paper over the problem. “The currency is collapsing,” he says, and foreigners recognize it. "It is the end of empire. You're watching it in real time," he argues. "If you can't see that, I can't help you." He discusses preparedness and what kinds of gold and silver products would be ideal in a collapse scenario.

If There Were No Government: Anarcho-Capitalist Solutions To Break Free From The System​

Mention slavery and you are immediately entering a minefield of political correctness, setting off “offense” bombs left, right, and center. The really funny part is that people today are nothing more than slaves, and the worst thing is that they can’t even see it.

That’s because for hundreds and thousands of years, generations of “citizens” have been brought up with the following messages deeply programmed into our minds:

  • Truth comes from authority.
  • Taxes are not extortion, it’s a social contract.
  • Intellectual and social conformity is rewarded.
  • Non-compliance is punished.
And, they’ve done such a good job that it’s almost impossible to convince people that this is not a good way to live.

Kids come out of college today with knee pads on – ever ready to kneel before authority; with no intrinsic need or understanding of human beings being totally free in a free market system; and with a mindset that you can’t facilitate exchange without a central planner. Something that is against the basic laws of Entrepreneurship, Libertarianism, Anarcho-Capitalism, Agorism, Voluntaryism… and human nature.
