The Weekend Vigilante September 22nd, 2012

September 22, 2012

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.

Feedback Friday - September 21, 2012

September 21, 2012

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...


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.

The Invisible Fence Works as Well as a Real One

September 20, 2012

You know how they say history does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme? Well, it's absolutely true, especially in the case of governments. States pull the same nonsense repeatedly throughout history, but they don't do it in exactly the same way, so most of the history-challenged populace never catches on.

DEAR SLAVEY - September 19th Edition

September 19, 2012

[Today's edition of Dear Slavey comes from the new TDV Homegrown newsletter. Be sure to read the Parting Shot to find out more about how the new letter can help you and how you can sign up below.]

One question Slavey hears time-and-time again is whether or not one should value organic foods over price savings or vice versa. This is a great question, and very relevant for the first issue of Homegrown – Slavey’s new home – in which TDV examines whether or not one truly spends that much more money while eating out.

But, in the meantime, let’s look at the question at-hand:  "Is it worth it to buy mostly organic food or is it more important save money?"

The Last Failed State

September 18, 2012

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Correspondent, Justin O'Connell]

There is not a state on the planet today that is worth salvage; nope, not a single government that deserves our sympathy, empathy, concern, or hope. They deserve only our disdain and disbelief. They are all failed states, and the sustainability of humankind depends on a clean break with the old paradigm of states assuming a natural right to power over individuals.

Another Tough Day In America: Criminals Rewarded, Heroes Jailed, Dollar Destroyed

September 17, 2012

[Editor’s Note: The following post is by Jim Karger, TDV legal correspondent]

I wish I had been busier a few days ago, more occupied, or at least more distracted, with less time to follow the news. But I read it all and I regretfully report that it was another tragic day in America, another palpable step toward an ignominious end.

TDV Week in Review September 16th, 2012

September 16, 2012

This week's contemplations were sparked by a couple different liberty-oriented newsletters which I read regularly. In one the author says that not paying taxes is downright stupid, no matter the moral or supposedly legal grounds for tax avoidance. In the other newsletter the author points out that the evil of the Federal Reserve isn't that it's private; it's that the Fed has a government-granted monopoly on what is legal tender in the US, i.e. the Fed is a corporatist collusion of private interest with state violence.

September 15, 2012

Hello from Acapulco!

Last week I wrote to you from San Diego.  And I'll be in Panama all next week.  But, at least for a few days, I was able to return to one of my favorite places on Earth.
