by Jeff Berwick: Time
To Pay Your Taxes, Slaves
It’s been a
notable week. First, April’s Fools Day passed on April 15th…
the day that US slaves are forced to turn over the fruits of their
labor at the threat of force to a cabal of extortionists. Then
Dick Clark died… which means no New Year’s Eve this year. Well
4/20… an important day in cannabis culture. According to
Wikipedia, the earliest use of the term 4:20, or 4/20, began among
a group of teenagers in San Rafael, California in 1971. Calling
themselves the Waldos, because “their chosen hang-out spot was a
wall outside the school, the group first used the term in connection
to a fall 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that
they had learned about. The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur
statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting
place, and 4:20 pm as their meeting time. The Waldos referred
to this plan with the phrase “4:20 Louis”. Multiple failed attempts
to find the crop eventually shortened their phrase to simply “4:20″,
which ultimately evolved into a codeword that the teens used to
mean pot-smoking in general.
illegal, despite the fact that in 1619 the first law regarding cannabis
in the US was a law that required farmers to grow it. The
founding fathers of the US and countless US Presidents have enjoyed
it. ”Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow
it everywhere,” said George Washington. Even the prince
of peace, Barack O’Bomber enjoyed the herb and stated ”When
I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.” Not
seemingly capable of fathoming hypocrisy, he puts millions of Americans
in cages for doing the same.
Now, in the
US, cannabis the plant is called a “drug”. And real drugs,
the ones that are exponentially more dangerous, like Zoloft, Adderall
and Percoset are not called “drugs”. They are just called
little helpers” or the like… and are administered by state
registered drug dealers called doctors.
of propaganda, hypocrisy and indoctrination in child prison camps
(schools) leads many kids in the US to become like this:
wrong with the US today is encapsulated in this video. Ignoring
the feline abuse, this poor brainwashed slave does not seem to have
any problem with ten year old kids virtually shooting, blowing up
and bombing people to bits. The problem he has is that there
are references to plants and vegetables that make you feel happy,
expand your mind, want to eat snacks and love the world in the game.
If there is
one person on Earth who needs to smoke a joint at this particular
moment in time it is him. Instead, what we are looking at
is the Republicrat candidate for President of the US in 2024.
YOU DON’T LIKE IT YOU CAN LEAVE
I often recount
how much I enjoy the times when I am talking to a Canadian or American
and telling them how horrible the government and all the laws are
and they say “if you don’t like it you can leave!”. It’s actually
my favorite moment of any I can think of. I get to smile and
tell them “I did and it was the best thing I ever did.”
Rarely do they
have a comeback to it. Most people just stand there confused.
You can actually hear their indoctrinated brains start to
fizz a bit. It’s because they have been taught that you can’t
leave… and even if you did, you’d be crazy to do so. There is
a reason they play the “National Anthem” ever day in the indoctrination
camp. They don’t have any other scripts implanted in their brains
for after you tell them you already left. I usually walk away
at that point as they twitch and fumble for their keys.
I thought of turning the tables somewhat. Often you will hear
socialist indoctrinated, Michael Moore “documentary” watching types
talking about how capitalism needs to be changed. They’ll
complain that it isn’t fair… that big corporations don’t pay as
much slave tax as they have to… or that it outright should be
the fact that they aren’t talking about capitalism (they are talking
about the fascist corporatism in the western world today) I’ve decided
to take another tack with these folks. The next time I hear
a socialist/communist complain about capitalism I’m going to say,
“If you don’t like it you can leave.”
I don’t mean
leaving the US… or the country. I mean: leave the marketplace.
If you are really against markets then “leave”. Stop
exchanging your labor for money. Stop purchasing food, your
iphone, your birkenstocks or your hacky sacks. Don’t exchange
your hair-braiding skills to buy food. Don’t enjoy the division
of labor to make things like air travel, the internet and every
modern convenience possible.
I can’t wait
to hear the responses to my statement that if they don’t like the
market they can leave. Because, for the most part, it isn’t
the marketplace they are against. They are against the fascist
corporatism that gives political favors to the highest bidder. If
they understood what
money really is, they would be against being constantly impoverished
by the inflationary policies of central banks. And so are we. The
only difference between us and them is that they think that more
government involvement in the economy is required to solve the problem
of too much government involvement in the economy.
12-16 years of socialist indoctrination (school and college) and
a propagandized mainstream media gets you. Devoid of the ability
to think critically the slaves clammer for more slavery.
old saying in the US, recently recounted by Doug Casey, stating
“We won’t have concentration camps here. They’ll call them

the name to concentration camps in Nazi Germany. They were called

to the chillingly titled "Civil Protection Minister" Michalis
Chrisohoidis, talk about the hospitality centers that you can’t
have a commitment to start operating these closed-hospitality centers,
and we will keep to that commitment. The first centre will operate
before the general election in greater Athens, and it will act as
a model to show Greek citizens that these facilities are safe for
the public and will operate to high standards of health and hygiene."
Well, at least
those dirty Africans will be kept clean. But, no one seems
to see the similarities with Germany here. The Nazis constantly
harped about health and hygene as they fumigated jews.
we can update the old quote from the Nazi era to a more modern one.
”First they came for the Somalis and I said nothing. Then
they came for the Libyans and I said nothing. Then they came
for me and there was no one left to say anything”.

despair, we’re sure they’ll have a much rosier sounding name for
these. Perhaps “Unleavable Party Vehicle” (UPV)… or “Involuntary
Mobile Beer Garden” (IMBG) – without beer, of course. All
FOR THE WORST
Either I am
insane or things are just getting so absolutely obvious now that
it is impossible to ignore. I know your state-indoctrinated
parents and family think I am crazy… but they sit in front of
their mainstream media nightly news and gulp it down like a fat
kid with a bag of chips and a Big Gulp. They actually want
to believe. The reason is… if they acknowledge the truth,
they’ll have to re-assess their entire lives. And, their feeling
of financial security rests upon them hoping and praying that all
the socialist security systems still exist for the next 10… or
20….. or 40 years until they eventually die.
If you are
older and are reading this and agree with me, then you are a rarity.
You’ve somehow avoided the brainwashing and collectivist thinking.
Perhaps you are a genetic mutant. Or maybe you just
didn’t go to school and watch TV, like me… and ignored your stupid
In either case,
for those who see what is going on the roadmap is clear. It’s
time to get outside of the western financial system through investments
in precious metals and other hard assets that criminals like Ben
Bernanke can’t dissolve like the ice cream cones he sucks down at
Washington Nationals games. It’s also important to get a significant
percentage of your precious metals outside of the control of the
group of people who purport to own you (Getting
Your Gold Out Of Dodge can help with that). If you live
in the US and have an IRA, convert it to a self-directed IRA to
be able to move your assets into non-traditional investments and
get them outside of the US (the TDV
Self-Directed IRA can help with that).
If you have
the financial ability, get a second passport to give yourself some
level of financial and personal autonomy, privacy and capability
can help with that – we just completed our first tranche of EU Passports
that we can get you in less than 2 months and FedEx direct to your
door… or passports in St. Kitts and Nevis that we can also get
in a matter of weeks… or Dominican Republic, Paraguay or other
passports which can take a few years to get but are cheaper).
And, you may
be thinking, wow, this guy just flogged at least three of his own
personal products to me… he must be one of those predatory capitalists.
Well, think what you want. I just started writing about
oppression here at TDV a few years ago and so many people have contacted
me to ask for answers and solutions that I searched for them(and
write about them to subscribers weekly… Subscribe
to TDV here. OK, that’s four!)… and in most cases, they weren’t
available. So, being the predatory capitalist I am, I scoured
the world and found the right people, made the connections and set-up
the infrastructure and services to provide it as cheaply as possible
for the people who asked for them all voluntarily. I’m terrible,
I’m sure plans
are in place to send me off in a UPV to a Closed Hospitality Center.
