Why Authoritarianism Must Prevail

Freedom anywhere is a threat to authoritarianism everywhere. That is why authoritarians must destroy all freedom and why liberty lovers, and even the merely "lib-curious" (liberty curious), must not just resist blatant authoritarianism, but reject it in all its guises. The fate of the nation, and the world, again hangs in the balance.

To the extent that any freedom persists, authoritarian diktat can be subverted, albeit at a cost. History is rife with examples of bizarre entities, like nonbank banks (I kid you not!), rent-a-banks (ditto!), and gold caches, designed to work around branching restrictions, usury laws (maximum interest rates), the criminalization of holding gold, and sundry other attempts to limit financial freedom. (See my Financial Exclusion for details.)

To squelch "undesirable" activity, like increasing bank competition, voluntarily lending/borrowing small amounts of money at rates commensurate with the attendant costs and risks, or trying to protect one's family against fiat money inflation, government must outlaw the workarounds too. To get their way, statists must suppress all unapproved activities, which ultimately means forcing would-be innovators to obtain permission before they can lawfully engage in any new activities.

Consider, for example, recent calls to allow the IRS to monitor essentially all bank accounts in the country. Maybe Americans will accept it, if, as claimed, the power is only used to enforce current tax laws. But if tax rates rise appreciably, as it seems they will, given the current administration's policy goals, or if the transaction information is used for partisan political purposes, or to shame or coerce people into buying this, or not buying that, Americans will begin to search for workarounds. To the extent that the workarounds prove successful, government will be forced to outlaw the workarounds too.

For instance, if workers ask their employers to pay them in Federal Reserve Notes or Bitcoin because they believe that the transaction costs of making payments in those media will be less burdensome than giving some party hack access to the most intimate details of their lives, the government may well force employers to pay workers only in USD and only via bank transfer. It might even ban cryptocurrencies entirely, or at least try to.

Workers might then make one payment per month, to a "bill paying service" that for a fee will pay their bills for them, out of its one, giant bank account. Oh, but that sounds like an unregulated bank taking uninsured deposits so those services will have to be suppressed as well, or perhaps replaced by the central bank.

People may then begin paying everything by credit card, and even direct their employers to repay their credit card issuers directly. Next thing you know Uncle Sam will want to see your credit card statements too. Ditto PayPal, Venmo, and any other fintech apps used to make or receive payments. Thus a seemingly innocuous request to see bank accounts for tax purposes becomes the excuse for full-blown financial repression. This will, as always, hurt the poor the most.

Employers might work around those laws, along with the tax code and vaccine mandates by converting their employees into volunteers and donating payroll to a nonprofit charity with the singular mission of ensuring that the "volunteers" receive "donations" that happen to match the value of their former compensation. Imagine the chaos if every employer simultaneously did that! Government would have to respond by tightly regulating, if not outright outlawing, charities and volunteer work. Our liberty would be truly lost at that point, and again the poor would suffer most.

Corporations shouldn't be taxed, but they are.

[Ron: I disagree. IF corporations are allowed to operate in any community their commercial activities should be properly taxed for the benefit of the community in which they operate and generate income. However, it is cosmically (divinely) unlawful to require payment of income taxes from human individuals in respect of the incomes they earn  using their ingenuity and labour. THAT practice must cease.].

Many of the largest have engaged in (international) tax arbitrage by adroitly shifting headquarters, production facilities, and charters between different states, provinces, and countries. Governments are now fighting back by establishing a global minimum corporation tax. How long before some entity begins to offer oceanic or orbital (then moon, then Martian) charters as tax havens? Soon after, though, private space flight and oceanic colonization will likely be banned or heavily restricted.

Everyone should be aware that if an international gold ETF issuing bearer shares, Honeypot.xxx (a sex worker-owned substitute for OnlyFans), a parallel university system, or anything else of import that runs against the woke or statist grain begins to gain commercial traction, regulatory hammers will swiftly bludgeon the innovators into compliance, or out of existence.

Were that all! When statist solutions to perceived "problems" create real problems, the call inevitably goes out for yet more government. When pressed about how to pay for UBI (various universal basic income) schemes, for example, schemes that are purportedly needed to solve a nearly nonexistent income disparity "problem," proponents will sometimes argue for the establishment of a Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF, or a giant investment fund owned by a government), the dividends and realized capital gains of which can be divided equally among the citizenry.

[Ron: I disagree with Phillip W Magness' view expressed in 'The Myth of Spiralling Inequality' https://www.aier.org/article/the-myth-of-spiraling-inequality/ that income disparity is nearly non-existant. Arguably there is enormous income disparity in our world but only a tiny percentage of the population benefits greatly therefrom while the incomes of everyone else have become increasingly similar due to govermental downward redistribution of middle class incomes to unemployed and partially employed people. The result is that an increasingly gross disparity of income occurs betwen the mega rich 0.1 percent of the population and the rest. This minimises the disparity in the overall income distribution profile for almost everyone but conceals the reality that a tiny plutocracy is currently absorbing virtually all increasing global wealth. For instance the REAL wealth and income of the super rich is not received in personal income as such but via control of untaxed foundations and NGOs etc, and the resultant benefits received indirectly from such wealth. For instance the Pope may receive no income but he commands the use of a 4000 room summer palace and the wealth of the whole Catholic Church. Income is meaningless to the truly wealthy controller sof our world.

As regards the lesser lights among our global 0.1 percenters, they use myriad methods to hide their real income. As a result they DO enjoy a huge disparity in wealth that is concealed by various methods.

A UBI will just continue the status quo. See eg: A Universal Basic Income Is Essential and Will Work http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/A-Universal-Basic-Income-Is-Essential-and-Will-Work.shtml

Also be aware that by far the biggest "TAX" on everyone except the super rich has been usury, the interest rates charged by the private banksters (ie, the people who form the core of globalist super rich families). Until the current fiat currency (debt token) monetary system started to collapse in recent years causing interest rates to head towards zero, usury probably extracted, and covertly funnelled to the super rich, about 40% of all the productivity of most societies on this planet. Why? Because interest was extracted across all societal activities, enabling interest to be charged multiple times throughout the economic activity spectrum. On this issue Anthony Migchels said, prior to the beginning of the  collapse of the current fiat currency system: 'As we know, today 40% of prices is Usury passed on by producers.' - A Crucial Lesson Of History: Why Do We Have Usury? - https://realcurrencies.wordpress.com/

 


In addition to wealth extracted from the community by usury, governments like the US corporation, the UK corporation, the Commonwealth of Australia corporation and many others, are covertly owned and controlled by the banksters and those governments levy personal income taxes and other taxes, licence fees and charges to pay interest on bank loans. Those government levies extract another 40% of global productivity. Sooo, can you guess why this planet is a dystopia ravaged by poverty with most people competing in a race to the bottom and destitution, such that they have become open to the Universal Basic Income (UBI) scam? For a discussion of UBI see eg:

The root of the problem is the money meme itself. The money meme was foisted on humanity many millennia ago by demonic forces as a means for controlling and enslaving humans on this planet. Humans here have been socially engineered to believe that money, or fiat debt tokens called currency which banksters pretend is money, is essential for human life and societal existance. It isn't.

All of the needs of human societies are actually met by the exercise of human ingenuity and labour using the physical, God given resources made freely available by this planet. The money meme is a fiction that only exists due to its acceptance by the population. A spiritually mature human population does not need this mechanism which is, at best, cumbersome and creates much unnecessay work in accountancy and other activities, even if usury is not involved.

A major downside of the money meme is that its use creates a tendency for materialist thinking and it encourages people to hoard money in order to erroneously feel secure and/or to give them power over other people. Real security is created by spiritual individual and community living in which everyone seeks to serve others more than self as is typical in loving families, extended families, clans and tribes.

Once Presidents, Trump, Putin and Xi and their global Alliance supporters eliminate the demonically controlled banksters and Deep State elements in this world who have controlled its monetary and banking systems, we can eliminate usury and begin to wean the population off thinking they need money to live.


 

 

UBI proponents are not sure where the money to fund the SWF will come from, or if it is a good idea to concentrate all that economic and political power in one decision maker's hands, but if you want to see their true colors, ask them why individuals cannot simply invest their own money for themselves. Turns out that elites believe that most Americans don't know how to invest properly, in the "right" (which is to say Left) companies. So look for a push to outlaw individual investment in favor of a SWF-funded UBI, or at least a narrowing of choice to SEC-approved ESG funds. You may still own something in 2030, but it seems increasingly unlikely you will be happy.

America and the rest of the West have been sliding down the slippery slope of statism for so long that they are now rapidly approaching the precipice that ends in rock bottom. Will liberty be crushed and a new dark age commence? Or will the masses then finally see governments as the problem, rather than as the solution?
