  • Howdy all…first…this is awesome! lol I can’t believe I’m actually in it! Thanks everyone for doing this and putting this most excellent website together. So proud and happy to have a part. 🙂 Ok, so I’m looking to buy silver, but don’t know where to buy because a) I’m totally unfamiliar with the process an db) there seems to be lots and lots of options and it’s a little overwhelming. I’ve dealt with Amagi metals before, and I know they are pretty cool (one of their reps is ancap (they sponsored Speak Liberty NOW), and they’ve even posed on JT’s Facebook wall before…lol), and I’ve spoken to a rep with EuroPacific Capital previously. He was great, but they wanted a minimum of 5k or 10k )I forget which now). Shoudl I just go with a rep from somwhere, or does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Cheers!

  • This company is basically a full reserved bank that would be fully approved by Murray Rothbard himself. Their metals broker-dealer business is their cash cow today but they are creating a payment network that disintermediates banks and saves their customers money. They have a crypto broker-dealer and storage business as well but as prudent financial advisors the company’s management tries to educate the public about the virtues of gold ownership. The company acts like a fiduciary and seems much more trustworthy than market leaders like coinbase. Expanding into China with a customary 50/50 JV with a local company. Tough to predict the companies FCF going forward but it trades under 2x book value. Let me know what you guys think.

  • Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy gives us a simplified (maybe oversimplified), and intuitive way to categorize human sociality. Instead of thinking of social structures as being diverse and too complicated to be categorized, these three categories allow us to classify behaviors that address conflict as one of three types or a combination of the three.  For example, might makes right is not really a property norm but it is a dominance strategy. The ethic that the world belongs to everyone is not an alternative property norm, it is the nullification of property in favor of a sharing norm.  The violent defense of a territory is not a might makes right or dominance behavior but is the defense of privacy. The reluctance to intrude on others prior establish territory is not just a fear of retaliation but a respect for privacy.   For moe read: Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy (DSP), The Three Principles of Sociality

  • If the state was abolished but private property was not then wouldn’t landlords effectively become the state? There are a lot of similarities between a landlord and a state.  They both hold territory that they can exclude people from.  A proprietor can tell their tenants what to do while they are on their property. Taxes are similar to rent.  Laws are like the rules of a rental contract.  A proprietor may defend their property with force.   So what is the difference?

  • Hi there! Can anyone give me some initial advice on where and how to purchase and store physical gold? I’ve never done this before and I figure this is probably the most trustworthy forum for such advice. A bit about my situation. I’m from the UK (Northern Ireland) and have bought gold coins in the past but these were always delivered to me and are in my own possession. I want to buy and store a much larger amount as safely as possible because holding this gold myself is not really an option. My reasoning is that I am considering selling my house and travelling around the world on a motorbike. Ultimately I would like to buy a rental property somewhere that would provide me with some passive income while I travel but would probably rule out the UK. This means I need to put the value somewhere in the mean time and it certainly is not going to be put in a bank! Thanks
