Short bio:

Anthony Hargis is a free market entrepreneur and writer who, since 1976, offered a gold-backed banking service to allow his customers to boycott the Federal Reserve System.  He began researching and writing about the lack of constitutionality of the income tax and other government cover-ups in 1995.  His writings apparently irritated several government officials and in 2004 he was jailed for almost six months.  His business (including all his customers’ property) was subsequently confiscated by the IRS without a trace of due process.

George is a collector of guns -- all of which were registered -- some even for museum display. (He had endured several 'routine' police inspections to verify his registration papers.)

They are spooked, leave...

Reflections on Natural-Law Ethics and Mechanisms

It has been said that the purpose of organized society is to encourage good behavior and punish bad. But Aristotle told us that before we can establish a social organization to accomplish this function, we must first discover the behavior best for man; that is, before we can organize a political system (to reward good and punish bad), we first need to know what is good, and what is bad. Until...
The Money of Cannibalism

There are people in this world who tell us that the Federal Reserve System is a kind of criminal operation, and that we should return to a gold-based currency. Do we need such an alternative? Are they joking? Or, are they engaged in an attempt to avert the extinction of the American people?
The Right of Revolution

Every man has the right of self-preservation. It is the law of every living organism; neither man nor beast waits for permission to use it. It is a natural right. This right includes the right of judgment, and the right of execution (the power to compel a judgment). In most men, these rights are defective because of weakness, ignorance, or incapacity. They are defective, also, because there is...
