Do you own yourself?
It’s a question I often ask when presenting at conferences all over the world—and the answers I get aren’t always the most… inspiring.
It’s fair enough: as popular as libertarianism has become over the years—and as fast as cryptocurrency exploded—a large portion of the population is still completely unaware of the shackles around their necks.
I recently spoke at the London Blockchain Summit and asked attendees the same question: do you own yourself?
Only a few raised their hands in agreement.
The link between cryptography and self-ownership is often a subtle realization that the average crypto-investor isn’t even aware of.
But as I said in my London talk, “For those of you who don’t understand why Bitcoin is and was so important, it was because it was the first time really in history that across the world, human beings had the opportunity to interchange value without the involvement of the central bank or government. In fact, that’s the biggest threat to central banks and governments…”
Their power over money protects their own interests over everything else.
So while there are many other things that keep the ‘deep state’ up at night, in the words of Obama, “everyone walking around with a Swiss bank account in their pocket” is undoubtedly at the tip of the spear.
Every day, more people are awakening to the value of self-ownership—the enlightened state of being which enables you to take control of your life without a government extorting you while saying it’s “for your own good.”
Society is evolving. Where we’re going, you can be your own bank, and be your own government.
This is why, over the last few years, I’ve had the honor of hosting Anarchapulco, which has become The World’s Premier Liberty Event. In 2019, we’ll have four full days of Cryptopulco… an all crypto event held throughout the entire conference with some of the biggest names in the space.
The word is getting out and tickets are selling fast—for good reason! This year, we’ve booked out the entire Princess Mundo Imperial—it’s going to be a full mind, body, and soul experience.
Anarchapulco will host an amazing lineup of visionary speakers, with confirmed guests so far including Ron Paul, Andrew Napolitano, David Icke, Cynthia McKinney, Doug Casey, and many more.
Ticket prices go up on the 30th at midnight so be sure to BOOK NOW before it’s sold out.
