"The Big Picture" - Dollar Vigilante November Newsletter

It has been an interesting week for me.
First, I was invited to speak at World Crypto CON in Las Vegas and then shortly before the event they told me I couldn’t speak. At the same time they told most of my other anarchist friends they also couldn’t speak and/or they were banned from the event, including Ben Swann, Luke Rudkowski and Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media.
I was already in Texas for the Texas Bitcoin Conference and I mostly just wanted to play in their crypto poker tournament anyway so I went to Vegas.
All manner of strange people seemed to be coming up to me, including one woman speaking in tongues. And, a weird energy surrounded the event... so much so that my body was shaking the entire time.
Then they also didn’t allow me to play in the poker event! I paid one guy some BTC to buy his chips and they threatened to call the police on me! I know what happens next when that happens so I left the premises.
Later that night, Josh Sigurdson was poisoned and barely survived. Other anarchists I knew who were there were being accosted, having their phones stolen and other aggressions.
I should mention this all occurred on Halloween. Day of the dead. Whatever happened, karma struck instantly and no one showed up! I then got a message from my wife that she wanted me to come home immediately and I was happy to do so.
She told me that God told her that we had to tell everyone to repent immediately before it was too late and she went into two days of screaming, crying and became delirious after three days without eating or sleeping.
Eventually we had to get her to the hospital to get her calmed down. I’ve spent the last two days with her there and we just returned home as they gave her a number of things to relax her.
Is something strange going on? It sure feels like it. In any case, as I stated in the last newsletter, no matter what happens I am just going to continue on with my work (although spending more time with my family is also a priority) helping people to wake up... that’s all I can do.
Current Events
As I write it is the midterm selections in the USSA. Yet another, “most important election in our lifetime.” All fear propaganda to try to make believe that voting will fix this evil system of slavery. It won’t. But, when they say this is the "election of our lifetimes" they are right on one thing. Politics, central banks and government are very close to destroying the entire world.
Elect to walk away from it all now before it is too late. I know I don’t have to tell TDVers that but it is worth reiterating.
And, the results are in. Anarchy won like it has every single selection.
And the wars continue killing or destroying the lives of millions of innocents, Americans continue to get extorted for trillions of dollars per year, millions of innocents remain in cages in rape camps and the Federal Reserve continues to impoverish and steal from everyone.
Meanwhile, in things that actually matter, the battle over bitcoin has hastened dramatically. But, you wouldn’t know it from the price action.
The complete lack of volatility has only gotten worse (or better if you are in the “volatility is bad for bitcoin” camp).
Here is a chart of bitcoin on October 27th.
For a 24 hour period it traded within a $15 band! It’s like the whole world is just waiting to see what happens next.
And, what will happen next? I am still expecting a panic sell-off along with all worldwide markets followed by a price explosion.
We did make it through October without that happening, but I have pointed out November is also a prime month for it to occur. If nothing major occurs in November then I may have to reassess.
The US stock markets continue to hang in there but really only propped up by a minority of stocks as this tweet from early October points out.
Bank stocks, which are probably one of the most important to watch are off 17% from January of this year.
Meanwhile, crypto exchange Binance made more profit than Deutsche Bank in the second quarter of this year!
As I said last issue, things really couldn’t be going better for the cryptospace, right as it appears that bank stocks and the market as a whole is on the verge of collapse.
On October 26th, the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, said that he “certainly” does not view cryptocurrencies as a threat to his business right now, but added that “if we have to go there, we’ll go there.”
You’ll have to go there Kelly... better start working on your resume. Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is about to release its first blockchain-powered handset in cryptocurrencies, making it the first big name in the industry to accept only digital currencies as payment.
Exodus 1, the first version of HTC’s blockchain phone, is priced at 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH, which in current trading equates to about US$960.
HTC first announced the Exodus phone in May, which features a built-in digital wallet that will enable users to store and trade cryptocurrencies.
But, the game changing news is that ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, has announced they will launch their new digital asset platform, Baakt, on December 12th. This will enable traditional institutional investors to easily invest into the bitcoin market.
The total bitcoin market right now is about a $110 billion market cap.
Total value of financial asset worldwide is estimated to be over $300 trillion. Which means bitcoin is only 0.03% of total financial assets held in the world.
If, say, only 1% of that $300 trillion were to go into bitcoin, that would mean $3 trillion would be trying to enter a market worth $100 billion.
In other words, if you don’t own bitcoin and other cryptos by December 12th... don’t do that. And, don’t forget precious metals either.
FinIst analyst Denis Lisitsyn recently said on RT, “The aggressive US policy in recent years has forced some countries to look for an alternative to the dollar and replenish their gold reserves. Worries about the future growth of global economy are an additional incentive for purchases. Many question Donald Trump’s protectionism.”
Sounds like he has been listening to TDV’s Ed Bugos!
In the same article, Vladimir Rojankovsky, LIFA, expert at the International Financial Center said that Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all hoarding gold.
This, after Russian ownership of US Treasury bonds dropped from $96.1 billion in March to an 11-year low of $14.9 billion in May.
The writing is on the wall. And almost the entire public has no idea what is happening.
Luckily you do, so stick with us here as we give you are best guidance on how to survive and prosper during and after the dollar collapse.
And get right with your family and God. I’ve had a few moments in the last week where I thought it might be all over and each time I felt despondent knowing I still haven’t done enough. Don’t wait too long.
Coming Events
Due to my wife being in the hospital recently I cancelled going to Steemfest in Poland. I was also going to go to Iran and Iraq on that trip. But, I’ve decided family has to come before work in this respect.
Which means, really, my next major events are close to home with the TDV Summit on February 12-13th and Anarchapulco/Cryptopulco from February 14-17th.
I couldn’t help notice that World Crypto Con, which seemed to be out to kill all of us anarchists, was on October 31st and Anarchapulco starts on Valentine’s Day. Because it is really all about love.
If you haven’t checked out the TDV Summit page lately, check it out. We’ve added a number of great speakers and I still have a few surprises to announce. It is two full days this year and I am able to focus on it fully for the first time as we have a professional management team running Anarchapulco now. And, included in the price is a gala dinner to be held on the evening of February 12th.
And, Anarchapulco just released its main stage speaker list (there will be 5 stages this year). It’s quite the list! Jeffrey Tucker - Anarchapulco Master of Ceremonies
Ron Paul Former - Congressman, Author of 'End the Fed'
Andrew Napolitano - Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News

There are even more announcements soon, including Larken Rose and many more. And, we haven’t announced the Cryptopulco speaker list yet. It should come out in the next week. You won’t want to miss it.
Anarchapulco will likely sell out by January. And all 1,000 rooms in the Princess Hotel are already close to sold out, so if you want to stay on premises, make sure to book your room now. If you miss it, don’t worry, we’ll likely be filling up a hotel nearby down the beach too!
And, don’t worry about what might happen in the future. Live in the present. Own some precious metals and cryptocurrency. Work on yourself, physically, mentally and spiritually. And spend more time with your loved ones.
Everything else will work itself out.
Now, I’m going to go watch Lord of the Rings with my wife and kids. “Hey kids, did you know that ring of power is an allegory for central banks and government?”

The problem of libertarian extremism - freedom as a public good

Let us define freedom as any action that can be made by any individual that will have a result which is valued positively by that individual. Those actions differ among individuals. The positive value we will call profit. Let us assume that a lack of freedom to do that action will not produce such a result and therefore profit is 0. Let us assume that a further lack of freedom either causes the individual to not do something that would stop something bad from happening to him or pushes him to do something that will hurt him. That we will call loss. Let us further assume that this lack of freedom benefits someone else who we can refer to as the coercer by limiting actions that might negatively affect them or by redistributing the benefits of the individuals actions to them. Finally let us assume that the number of coercers is small but the number of individuals is large and the coercer can limit freedoms arbitrarily to arbitrary individuals or groups of individuals.

If we take on all of these assumptions we come to interesting conclusions. The loss of freedom produces a zero sum game among the coercer and individuals. The profit gained by the coercer who can control those individuals is the concentrated benefit received by controlling all individuals but the loss to each individual is dispersed among their large number. Also, the coercer can break individuals into groups and limit specific freedoms while still getting concentrated benefits but for different restrictions. In addition, the profit gained by fighting for an increase in freedom for each individual is much smaller than the loss suffered by fighting the coercer whose concentrated benefits are larger than the losses incurred fighting the individual. In other words, freedom is a public good while coercion is a private good. This so far is the same observation as Mancur Olson has made when observing interest groups in his work on “institutional sclerosis”, Bruce Bueno De Mosquita and Alastair Smith in their work on the selectorate theory, Daron Acemoglu and James A Robinson in their book “Why nations fail”, by public choice theory work of Buchanan and Tulock, Adolph Wagners observations known as the “Wagners law of increased state spending”, Peacock-Wiseman hypothesis and Milton Friedmans observation of why the United States tax system cannot and will not be reformed.

However, things get more interesting. If freedoms comprise different actions for different individuals that means that freedoms are not binary but on a spectrum. More freedom in one area does not automatically mean more freedom in another. In other words, For each individual, fighting the coercer for his particular freedom is a priority, but each individual has different priorities. This means that, not only is freedom a public good, but it is also a dispersed public good. This is the worst public good possible. For public goods that come in a lump sum we have mechanisms of voluntary provision: assurance contracts, dominant assurance contracts, lotteries, bundling etc. We do not have mechanisms for dispersed public goods provision. This has interesting consequences for libertarians.

There are two strategies that libertarians can use: radicalism and gradualism. Radicalism is generally denounced among libertarians because radical changes result in large amounts of pain. Revolutions, after all, are known for the bad effects and the pain they create. Gradualism exists in different forms but they all share one thing, failure. Even in policy shifts towards economic liberalization which happened during the fall of Soviet Union gradualism has failed in countries where it was implemented, grinding to a halt very quickly after the initial implementation. But countries which changed their policies drastically and “over night” saw those changes stick in the long term. This makes perfect sense when observing those changes from the perspective described above. If changes are quick and large they encompass a great number of freedoms that are valued by large numbers of individuals and thus turn a dispersed public good into a lumpy public good. Victory becomes a lump sum game in which one individual does not get wanted freedoms until the others do.

This, however, is unfortunate news for libertarians because precisely the thing that they are trying to avoid, violent change is the only way which results in a change as large as to accumulate enough changes. This means that we can make an unfortunate prediction that if libertarian movement becomes more effective, it will be so because it is more extreme and non extreme parts of the movement unless subsidized by some benevolent billionaire will fade into obscurity as different groups fight and splinter over which freedom is the current priority, failing and finally giving up in frustration.

Example is the experience of the libertarian movement in the United States which is the only libertarian movement of any concentration anywhere in the world and has routinely not only failed but splintered over priorities and disagreements. In contrast the international success of bitcoin has been shocking considering the fact that even though taken for granted today, the history of cryptocurrencies consists of Liberty Reserve whose founder ended up in prison and E-gold whose founder got shut down by United States FBI. Starting it was dangerous and it was clear that the use of it was going to be for violating government regulations in the form of capital control violations, tax evasion etc. Despite this in the early stages it attracted unexpected unanimous unwavering participation by libertarians.

The strength of radical ideas in libertarianism over time might simply be showing an impact of incentives inherent in it. Which puts libertarians who want to avoid extremism between a rock and a hammer.

There have been two mechanisms proposed by libertarians to avoid this problem and they don’t work: separation (modern version being seasteading) and cryptoanarchy. The first idea has been attempted at least two times with the Operation Atlantis and Republic of Minerva. Both were well funded and organized but were ended by Haitian and Tongan gunboats. The second idea is based on putting most of the economic transactions on the internet protected by encryption. Most of the economy is physical ,however, including internet infrastructure and as is clear by observing some authoritarian countries, internet is unregulated mostly by fiat or government inaction rather than by design. This means that it will be unregulated until it becomes a threat as in the case of Silk Road Marketplace or Defense Distributed company. Both approaches delay the conflict rather than avoid it and in the case of cryptoanarchy actually encourage conflict with the government by turning the internet into a larger political threat.

Here's how anarcho-capitalists will attract more women into the movement, tons of them. Guaranteed.

First, I will assume first that we build a seastead(s) sometime during this next decade, based on some scalable product like perhaps algae-based biodiesel production.
I will assume secondly that such a seastead will be quite financially remunerative for all involved. One estimate says a free society should be 4 - 8 times wealthier compared to current society.
Women, like men, know a good financial opportunity when they see it, and generally will be attracted to higher-wage regions. Especially that much higher.
They will begin using the voluntarist services we will build because those will have a large amount of buy-in by the rest of us. The network effect will promote their use among new entrants to voluntarist society thereby.
And finally, women will osmote voluntarist values by living them in a free society, by seeing them working, and then buying into them in their own lives and becoming comfortable using them.
We are key in this equation because we must first bring into existence these voluntarist services and institutions that do not currently exist. In the same way that a bank requires knowledgeable people in finance to build the bank, yet anyone off the street can use a bank account, we will need to know voluntarist philosophy as it applies to various sectors to build the voluntarist services that a truly free society must have and use.
You guys know these services already: voluntarist money, voluntarist law, voluntarist courts / DRO's, and voluntarist police/security.
By this means, large swathes of humanity looking for merely more remunerative employment can come to absorb voluntarist values by living them out in their own lives.

Replacing politics and politicians with technologically-enabled voluntarist services

Scott Adams of Dilbert-comic fame suggests using tech to replace government within 100 years.
I consider this part of the osmotic strategy for change.
Build parallel institutions, offer people a choice between legacy government services and nouveau voluntarist technological services.
As they increasingly choose the voluntarist services, the transition will happen naturally, advantages and experience with these services bring in new members, and then the explosion of use happens when you import these services as native voluntarist institution in a free society like a seastead.
Bitcoin, Bitlaw, reputation tracking, technical property-title tracking, these can be options if you live in a place like the US, but they will be native solutions in a seastead.
And then things get really interesting.
People will flock to free regions because no-taxes. Because of a far higher standard of living thereby and investment opportunities kicked into overdrive by a laissez-faire environment.
We will brain-drain the world of their most productive members, as the US once did to the world, and then extend our system from free regions like seasteads to landed areas by provoking the world to jealousy with the standard of living we create.
Places with mere democracy, places still using politicians and legislatures will be seen to develop at a glacial pace compared to what a voluntarist society is capable of.
The young will embrace voluntarism first, then pass it around the world, first by using voluntarist services on top of legacy politics, then by replacing legacy politics with those services.
I tell you chaps, this is a strategy viable for world domination of the voluntarist ideology--through use rather than through education.
Through use and empowerment of voluntarist services, people will absorb voluntarist values.
If you give people control of their legal circumstances with something like Bitlaw, the amount of control and freedom that gives them makes mere voting and relying on a politician seem like a dinosaur by comparison, worse than that, people will realize they don't need politicians at all, that they're slow, that democracy results in irrational outcomes they don't like, that they can tailor law to themselves and their circumstances rather than having to put up with one-size fits all law that we have now.
This is where the movement for freedom philosophy has brought us, and we're going to change everything :)
