Hello from beautiful Acapulco,

Everyone has their place and this is truly mine.  I was just walking down the street with a glass of wine, smoking a cigarette and... well, actually I should mention something about that.

Feedback Friday - September 28, 2012

September 28, 2012

It's the first week of fall in the northern hemisphere.  And the first week of spring down south.  And, here in Acapulco, it's just the same as every other day of the year, 90F and sunny with a light breeze coming off the bay.  Here the terms "summer" or "spring" aren't even known.  But, in most parts of the world, the weather is a changin'.  In the north, summer is gone, the leaves are changing, but are the times? Judging by your feedback, they are not, and if they are, they are changing for the worse. At least the MSM can keep the sheeple distracted with Justin Bieber, iPhone 5s, and the fall TV season. But, dear TDV reader, you know where to come for all your needs in the quest for a life of true liberty.

It's Already Anarchy

September 27, 2012

[Editor's Note: The following post is by Michael Fielding and originally appeared on his blog, Sailboat Diaries, and can be read here.]

We’re just doing a bad job of defending ourselves.

Anarchy is not a particular social structure. It is a perspective. It’s the recognition that aggressive coercion is neither necessary nor beneficial. It’s a moral code that shapes our perception of the world around us. Anarchy is a way of seeing society, not a type of society.

The Monetary Times They Are a Changin’

September 26, 2012

Bob Dylan’s iconic, “The Times They Are A Changin’” starts off with the following lyrics:

Come gather 'round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You'll be drenched to the bone

Nothing could better symbolize the monetary state of affairs going on in the world today. We will all soon be drenched to the bone.

The Digital Revolution & How Books Will Be Banned in the 21st Century

September 24, 2012

[Editor's Note: The following post is by our Mexican-based TDV Education Correspondent, Jorge Gato]

Two of the 20th century’s most prescient secular writers were George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, both of whom analyzed certain aspects of our current occult scientific dictatorship. Orwell was a confused radical who criticized fascism and communism and Huxley was an elitist whose own brother was a major player in the eugenicist machine.

Hello from Bocas del Toro, Panama!

We are just wrapping up a great and eventful conference here in Bocas.  Last week we were talking with Doug Casey and he mentioned that because the conference is in Panama, where the US Government has a decent size foothold, to expect "at least one or two spooks" in the audience.

I didn't think much of it, but as I arrived on the first night I had an experience that was certainly unusual and slightly circumspect.  You tell me what you think of this.

Is it really Friday again? Big week here at TDV, as we launched TDV Homegrown, an exciting initiative that will do great things in helping to grow our community of freedom lovers. Other than that, what's going on? Well, judging from your email, you want out of the USSA. Read on, friends, read on...

IS A SLAVE IN THE USSA A SLAVE THE WORLD OVER?

Dear TDV,

I would like to think that moving off of the USSA slavery plantation and onto the Mexican slavery plantation would be better, but wouldn't I still be a slave on the Mexican plantation?  But maybe just have some more "freedoms" allowed by the slave master?  In reference to the article here.
