  • Ron Paul wrote a book called End the Fed. Then he proposed a bill not to end it, but to to audit #BecausePolitics. Now his son, Rand Paul, is threatening to place a hold on three nominees to the Federal Reserve board if he doesn’t get a vote on his bill to audit more thoroughly.   Just wondering what the consensus — if there — is a consensus in the L.me community or if it’s just as divided as the broader libertarian world is. Essentially, it’s a question of pragmatism versus agorism.  (The agorism part is alternative money like bitcoin).

  • Perhaps you will find this magnificent BBC documentary interesting. It tells the story of the ancient city of Caral, a little north of Lima on the coast of Peru, which is arguably the oldest city in and the beginning of civilization in the Americas. The Lost Pyramids Of Caral There are two points I would like to make about the story told therein of Caral which I think are relevant to libertarians. 1) The early civilization of Caral apparently arose purely out of commerce. This confirms the insights of the Austrian school of economics. And it may be an example of a commercially organized cooperative human society that antedates the rise of any state. 2) This contradicts the presumptions brought to the study by the archaeologists. For one example, at 7:20 one states the following. You can’t build … on the basis of consensus. You have to have leaders and followers. You have to have specialists. You have to have people who are in charge. People who can tell individual groups, alright, today you will be doing this. This group you are going to be doing something different. In other words, in his academic world, the possibility is inconceivable of that human cooperation could be organized by trade — the marketplace — rather than authority.

  • Fellow Liberty Lovers, Since 1913, we all know that the Federal Reserve and IRS have been working hand in hand to outright steal the money out of our pockets for their own interests in the form of “voluntary tax”. We also clearly know that should we choose not to pay the Federal Income Tax, along with any state income, or whatever they can come up with, would result in them potentially emptying our bank accounts, showing up to our door, intimidating and harassing all of us in a militarized fashion as they have with some individuals. However, some have managed to legally evade taxes altogether, gotten the IRS to leave them alone, and live somewhat of a free life not having to be extorted every April. For those on here that have gotten there, what have you done besides invoking the 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendment? What did you do or say to those who called your phone to harass you? What did you do if you knew some government bureaucrat hacked into your bank account and took a huge portion of your money? What did you do if some agent appeared out of nowhere to your door? And what did you do when they audited you? It’s ironic, that I as many would consider a member of the government mafia, would be asking my friends this question. But like you, I want to see everyone keeping all their money, not for bureaucrats to steal it when you worked in the hardest and smartest (ethical) way possible for it.

  • Although the Federal Reserve didn’t exist until 1913, and fiat currency not until the 1970s, there have been government controlled national banks since 1791. I’m interested to know exactly how the First Bank and Second Bank of the United States differ from the Federal Reserve, as I often hear people say that the U.S didn’t have central banking until 1913 when the Federal Reserve was created. But isn’t a national bank controlled by the government essentially a central bank, with the only difference being that there wasn’t fiat currency?
