Paul Craig Roberts: The Rise Of The Inhumanes





America’s descent into totalitarian violence is accelerating. It is a land in which facts have been redefined as enemy propaganda, a land in which legally protected whistleblowers are redefined as “fifth columns” or foreign agents subject to extermination, a land in which America is immune from criticism and all crimes are blamed on those whom Washington intends to rule.

The End Of "The Permanent Lie" Looms Large





For the moment, to paraphrase Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the “permanent lie [has become] the only safe form of existence”.

But the world cannot postpone, indefinitely, dealing decisively with the economic, resource management, social and political challenges we face.

Why Deez Nuts Is Actually Critically Important For The Future Of The Country





One might argue that the success of 15-year-old Brady Olsen - aka Deez Nuts - from Wallingford, Iowa, embodies more than simply a successful lampooning of the American political system. There are legitimate reasons to view this development as the opening salvo in an upheaval of the way Americans elect presidents. Does this sound hyperbolic? Let me take it a step further: Deez Nuts is actually critically important for the future of the country... and here’s why...

Weekend Reading: Chinese Food (For Thought)





The ongoing deterioration in fundamentals, economics and technicals suggest that risk currently outweighs the potential reward for now. With respect to the technical front, the ongoing deterioration in relative strength, momentum, and breadth, combined with a compression of price action, have only been witnessed at more important market peaks in the past. "Bull markets" do not die on their own. Their death is generally dictated by the onset of an unexpected catalyst that creates enough "panic selling" to spark a liquidation cycle. Does the current situation in China rise to such a level? Maybe. It is an issue we began discussing this past June, and there may be a danger in dismissing the issue too quickly.

Voting With Your Feet





When do we finally accept the hopelessness of reforming a self-serving machine bent on destruction?

Liberty Movement Needs More Innovations To Counter Technological Tyranny





The great lesson from history that each consecutive generations seems to forget is that the tools of tyranny used outward will inevitably be turned inward. That is to say, the laws and weapons governments devise for supposed enemies abroad will ALWAYS and eventually be used against the people they are mandated to protect. There is no centralized system so trustworthy, no political establishment so free of corruption that the blind faith of the citizenry is warranted. If free people do not remain vigilant they will be made slaves by their own leadership. This is the rule, not the exception, and it applies to America as much as any other society.

An "Austrian" Economist's Advice For Greece & The EU





Greece’s and the European Union’s economic and political crisis will not be resolved through a new debt deal between the government in Athens and the European authorities. It will be merely one more stop-gag “solution” to a problem whose nature is endemic to the current ideology and politics of State-Power and collectivism. Its real solution requires something deeper and more comprehensive: a revival of the classical liberal ideal of individualism and the economics of free market capitalism. This, unfortunately, is not likely to occur any time soon.

Tick, tock... "it could never happen here?"

Good On You, Alexis Tsipras (Part 1)





Late Friday night a solid blow was struck for sound money, free markets and limited government by a most unlikely force. Namely, the hard core statist and crypto-Marxist prime minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras. He has now set in motion a cascade of disruption that will shake the corrupt status quo to its very foundations.

Collapse, Part 4: Loss Of Faith In Public Institutions





Though we may think of collapse in terms of ATMs not working and rampaging mobs, collapse actually starts with the intangible loss of faith in public institutions: elected officials, law enforcement, the justice system and the agencies of financial regulation (anti-trust, etc.). Unsurprisingly to those who discern the structural rot of the status quo, Americans No Longer Believe In Their Institutions:

Dangerous, Phony 'Gun-Control'-Logic Strikes Again





Look, it’s unfortunate to have to live in a world where there’s crazy people who want to do bad things. But it would be even more unfortunate to live in a world where we are regulated against being able to defend ourselves against those people... and the institution with the monopoly over ‘protecting’ us has a long-term track record of violence, intimidation, and abuse.

Monk Or Martyr: One American's Strategy For Survival In The New Normal





"...my personal strategy for change has morphed from speaking to power in favor of becoming a monk rather than a martyr. If I could stand in front of a tank and have it force positive change I would do so but clearly that opportunity won’t happen or present itself in this leaderless, narrowing, putrefied, lying lawless system of festering corruption. Beyond 2015, I fear it will continue to be everyman for himself and thus divided we'll fall having rejected the spirit of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Slave Or Rebel? Ten Principles For Escaping The Matrix And Standing Up to Tyranny





“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.” - George Orwell

It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said - about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption - while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.

Martin Armstrong Warns "Kiss Your Pension Fund Goodbye"





We have been warning for some time that government was eying up pensions. The amount in private pension funds is about $19.4 trillion. The question that has been debated in secret behind the curtain is how to justify to the people taking that over... Just how that is to be accomplished was finally settled by the Supreme Court without any justification constitutionally.
