    It is wild to read this article from October 08, 2003. Monica has some real vision of how things work and writing about it 7 years ago before the sub-prime mess and the 'almost' crash of the economy. Community currency and local currency have begun to really take off in the US and Europe. TimeBanks are growing rapidly, hour exchanges and barter exchanges are becoming very common in small towns and big ones. I think there needs to be a more careful look at why some programs succeed like the Berkshares or Ithaca Hours and why many others fail after the initial excitement fades.

    Hi Emmet, Appreciate your reply, however, I'm not convinced that it is "out of fear of [the government]". The following story will make my point for me, I believe. THE DEVELOPMENT OF GROUP ATTITUDE Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string, and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it. Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment…with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, and then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs, or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know, that's the way it's always been done around here. And that, my dear friends, is how group attitude develops.

    Power Makes You Stupid
    Web link Cheryl Cline
    An attribute of criminal power (ability to coerce) is unaccountability for your actions. Power insulates itself from consequences using the threat of our guns, pointed at us, to prevent our retaliation for their crimes. It is not power that makes you stupid. It is irresponsibility and therefore lack of the feedback required to learn, adapt and therefore survive. Darwin warned us: Survival EQUALS adaptation to environment EQUALS ability to choose correctly EQUALS freedom: http://www.nazisociopaths.org/modules/article/view.article.php/36 Power, because of lack of feedback (facing consequences of THEIR actions) is doomed to non-survival, due to unfitness and inability to learn or adapt to reality.

It is the science which alone can tell any man what he can, and cannot, do; what he can, and cannot, have; what he can, and cannot, say, without infringing the rights of any other person.

    If you are correct in this, Jim, then neither of them read Psalms 2:2 (KJV) The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD [Jehovah], and against his anointed... However, you might not be correct in this assessment, because Paul is also attributed to 'saying' this about Jesus, at Colossians 2:15 (LITV), "having stripped the rulers and the authorities, He made a show of them in public, triumphing over them in it." Which is the reason, of course, is why the first charge brought against him was teaching people not to pay tribute (taxes) to the Caesar. Luke 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute [G5411] to Caesar... G5411 ...a load (as borne), that is, (figuratively) a tax (properly an individual assessment on persons or property...) ~ Strong's Greek Dictionary

    I am under the opinion that the judiciary is administering the bankruptcy of the U.S., (declared by Roosevelt in 1933), and that the judges are not allowed to consider any case law prior to 1938. Is that correct? If that is correct, and if your government is a "government of, for and by the people ("the people" being its consenting members)", are not "the people (i.e. the consenting members)" directly responsible for paying off this bankruptcy according to the agreed upon terms, thus creating a whole new set of rules?

    Leaving could be one of the hardest part of letting go... In this world we have to stand using our own feet. The Obama Wall Street Address at Cooper Union College was meant for president Obama to further explain his stand point on the health bill that can be going to the Senate later this week or next. The bill has already passed the House of Representatives, and only has just a little ways left on its way to becoming law. This reform bill has many optimistic and questionable sides to it. All I ask is that before you get all hot headed and worked up over it, do your research. Really spend some unbiased time finding out precisely what this bill is about and just how it will impact your life; you may be surprised at what you find.

    Actually, "evil" is relative to what the individual thinks. When I say that government is "evil," I am merely stating my opinion. I see government as the physical embodiment, the officialization, if you will, of what I consider "evil," which is the desire to possess The Ring of Power, or to control what other individuals do. If you get rid of this government, the virus that creates it still exists within too many individuals walking around on this land mass.

    To gain democracy,it should begin with the the people who rules our country.We cannot immediately have it but it should reflect more on the implementation rather that just saying that we need democracy.I just remember the Oklahoma City bombing that happened 15 years ago that created a big impact on democracy because people have different perception of it.It is 15 years given that the Oklahoma City Bombing took place where 168 innocent people died just doing their day to day activities. Many people remember watching the news and seeing the devastation and destruction. 200 kids were left parentless, or with disabled parents. Hundreds more left in fear. This kind of destruction can't cause any good outcome. As this bombing and domestic terrorism showed, it is not the way to make change, because there were no radical changes made due to the bombing. The only thing this bombing did was uniting Americans together and shows us that hatred can't prevail.

    The author spends a little too much time condemning Stack and exonerating IRS employees for my taste. Every one of us makes choices in life, good choices and bad choices. Unfortunately, the consequences for those choices are often not immediate, and sometimes don't happen at all. Bad choices are not always punished, good choices are not always rewarded. The choice to become an IRS employee is an evil one. Most who make this choice evade the consequences. The two who were killed by Stack did not. Oh, well. That does not make them just ordinary folks. They were still evil. They suffered a rather improbable consequence, but it was directly tied to what they did for a living (victimizing others), and the choice they made to do that. And Stack is not to be compared with Grigg either. When Grigg is as persecuted as Stack was, when the CPS actually takes his kids, we will see how he reacts (I suspect, with violence, which is the correct response). Oh, and paying a traffic fine in no way compares with what Stack put up with. I agree with Merrick that, "Government is the physical manifestation of a much deeper evil." We are all guilty of it in some way or another. But our ability to see and understand that evil, and rid ourselves of it, depends in part on our seeing that choices have consequences. Most people need to see that bad choices can be punished; and seeing that, they have plenty of incentive not to make bad choices. Joe Stack performed a service for liberty; he did not harm it. People who put up with anything the system dishes out to them, are no friends of liberty, either. There has to be a line in the sand. Joe Stack had one, and his was crossed. That's all.

    Unfortunately, this article implies a bright dividing line between producers and expropriators, where there is no such line. Most producers see no problem with sending their kids to a government school, receiving Socialist Security, or raiding Middle Eastern countries for their oil. So the first battle of the war will be within the brains of these people, deciding which they really want to be - producers or expropriators. Tea Party folks will have to face up to the fact almost all of them are hypocrites.

    That Joe became a government of one hits close to the mark. To say that government is not the root of evil, but the individuals who compose it, is a mistake. Considering government to be a separate entity to those individuals of whom it consists is a collectivist notion. Only actions can be evil and only individuals act. This does not change the fact that government is the locus of evil action.

    I agree with Jim Davies, in fact I will go further. Whichever of the major parties happens to “in power” at the moment automatically makes a large number of people who are loyal to the major party “out of power” more likely to sympathize with our point of view. I myself was once a Republican and began to drift more and more towards libertarianism during the Clinton years. I saw the abuses with Ruby Ridge and the Waco Massacre and began to question the very role of government in “protecting us”. If, in the 1990’s, I had read an article with the title “Please, Rush Limbaugh, Just go away” it would have made me LESS likely to pay attention to the actual arguments presented in that site. At this point in history we should present our arguments in such a way as to show them how we are alike, not how we are different. If a Republican becomes president in January of 2013 we should do the same for Democrats. Michael Cloud has a wonderful set of recordings called “The Essence of Political Persuasion" that teaches libertarians how to speak to people on the “Right” without alienating “The Left” and visa versa. It is a wonderful set of recordings and all of us can learn from him. http://www.theadvocates.org/epp.html

    This column is accurate, and the key question, pertinent: "When will [people] realize that they DON’T need any leaders AT ALL?" However isn't it better to demolish idiots by showing the falsehoods in what they say or do, and if possible by questioning their premises, rather than by accusing them of having squeaky voices or stumpy legs? Glenn Beck still isn't thinking outside the box, but he does broadcast some true stuff and it seems inappropriate to belittle him without even having heard what he says. I believe the name for that style is "ad hominem." Put it this way: suppose a Tea Partygoer happens upon this article. He is angry about the increase in government under Obama, and eager to find out what's up. He likes Sarah and Glenn. Will this article motivate him to read more in STR and discover why nobody needs any leaders at all?

    From the article: "So what about Kanin’s report, which found that over 40% of rapes reported to police are false? I wouldn’t suggest that Kanin has a political agenda — but I do think his methodology (which consists of tabulating police data from an unidentified small town) was overly credulous." It could be - depending on the small town. When companies wish to test market a new product in the United States they pick a location that has demographics that roughly represent a cross-section of the demographics in the United States. I do not know if something like this was done in this study. Studying human behavior is not like studying human biology or health. Culture - including religious beliefs - must be taken into account. For example, let us suppose that, in this small town, 90% of the residents were members of a religion in which women were considered very lowly and consensual sexual behavior outside of wedlock is a grave sin that would make them an outcast for the rest of their lives. A woman who was caught having consensual sex might have an incentive to claim it was rape even if she loved the person. Was this the case here? I do not know. I do not know what town it was.

    Just imagine if every thing a person does is illegal.Do you think he would be able to survive without fear and doubt?I don't think so! Like for example,a person who escape in paying taxes.Of course there is a corresponding penalty for that.Among the big things which governs income tax rates and tax theory in general in these United States is something called the Laffer Curve - which makes sense since it is a real laugher. It was made popular by Jude Wanniski, a crony of Donald Rumsfield, Dick Cheney, and later, Reagan and Bush, and the debate goes that there's a midpoint of taxation rates which makes for optimal collection and use of tax funding, which is intended to be basically payday cash advances from the individuals to the government. It's distinctly tied to Keynesian economics, and the Austrians (free market, libertarian types - not Reagan, btw) dispute its efficacy.

    It is great to have another essay from B.R. I think he's onto something here when he speaks about truth as a condition needed in the pursuit of freedom. Stack most certainly concluded with an untenable position when he initiated the violence. To sort of paraphrase Stefan Molyneux, the moral justifications for taking such actions become more and more convoluted the further we move away from truth. I think that the main truth that Stack willfully ignored was that the initiation of force is never morally justified. In my view, "winning" freedom will mean that one day we can persuade enough individuals not only to hear the counter argument against government, but also to hold to intellectual and moral honesty by knowing the simple truth that the initiation of force is immoral. If we can be honest in looking for the truth, I think the "diffusion and confusion" that tzo wrote about (here on STR, 4/04) is greatly diminished.

    Joe Stack made the same mistake "terrorists" and other non-strategic thinkers make: Failing to strike at the root of the problem or, mistaking pawns for the enemies of freedom. There will never be a shortage of pawns and, even though the system has as much care or allegiance for their pawns as for the rest of us (ie; absolutely none, apart from animal husbandry of prey), the system uses attacks on their pawns as a major part or their rationalizations (terror arguments) regarding why they need more power in their protection racket. Joe Stack made matters worse. The war for freedom can only be won by occupying the moral high ground. The truth is, we are all coerced by environmental control 101 to behave in a harmful, irrational manner and we ALL, including pawns of the system HATE it.

    I agree that Greece right now is suffering from a great economic tragedy that it was worsen to a BBB downgrade remark. It seems credit rating is vital to governments also, as Fitch has downgraded the credit rating of Greece to one of the lowest possible levels, BBB minus, with the rest of the European willing to help, but not too generously. (That proves the point about IGOs serving the interests of probably the most powerful member states.)

    Economics for Dummies
    Page Paul Hein
    The economy can grow without the supply of the medium of exchange increasing. What happens is that each unit of the medium of exchange will become more valuable with respect to other goods as there are more goods available. This means that prices of those goods will generally decrease (price deflation), which is what we want. This is what makes it possible for those on the low end of the economic spectrum to enjoy a higher standard of living. It makes their money go further by allowing them to buy more. Also, when the medium of exchange tends to rise in value over time, saving instead of spending is made possible. In a system where the supply of the medium of exchange is increased, the value of that medium tends to decrease over time with respect to other goods. Thus you get higher prices (again, price inflation that results from inflation of the supply of money). In this environment, saving means you lose value over time and thus the incentive it to spend the money now before it loses value. It also tends to make people take more risks with investing in their attempts to get a return on their money that outpaces the rate of inflation. In a stable monetary system, saving by stuffing your mattress is relatively safe. Barring theft or accidental destruction, it will increase in value or at worst hold steady. In an inflationary monetary system, stuffing your mattress is a losing proposition and we have seen that investing in stocks and other financials is anything BUT safe in recent years. The supply of gold does increase every year. However, the new supply is quite small relative to the total existing supply and thus the increase is very small and tends not to experience sudden increases. Even many of the "big" gold rushes only had an effect in the area immediately around the sources of the gold. As you get out away from the source, the inflationary impact on prices lessens. However, if a large enough new supply were found and rapidly injected into the market, it would cause prices to react accordingly and they would likely go up, at least for a time.

    I guess I qualify here as an "old folk," in my 6th decade of life. In my experience, young people in the United States don't know what socialism is, having never experienced it in action. Few have lived in communal living arrangements, none have experienced a socialist economy. Few have seen our capitalist oligarchy from the outside. I do not reject socialism. I work for its beginnings every day of my life.
