John Johnson The providing of all goods and services should be privatized. Why is it that if government provides a good or service for you without your request and then sends you the bill, it is OK, but if Walmart does it, it's a criminal act?
John Johnson If I monopolized the roads or the drinking water by force, you would call me a criminal, but when government does it, you bow to your masters. And if I could live on my private property and be left alone, I would, but I am not allowed to do so.
John Johnson There are two ways to give people money. 1. Voluntarily give them money. 2. Forcefully take money from someone and give it to someone else. The second one is immoral. And there is a reason why business, especially banks, are holding onto that cash. They are holding reserves for fear of another economic crisis. If the banks loan out that money, they are at greater risk of becoming insolvent in the event of a market crash or a bank run.
John Johnson Voluntary governance. I don't really know much about the thrive movement, but I came<br>across this page awhile back and it has a lot of good information about<br>liberty. http://www.thrivemovement.com/solutions-liberty
John Johnson How did you come to the conclusion that the financial sector needs more regulation? Regulation is what gives the central banks their power. If the central banks weren't protected by legal tender laws, entrepreneurs could provide alternatives.
John Johnson Yes, I have auto insurance. What does that have to do with anything? I don't assault, murder, or rob people, but I break stupid laws all the time. Laws are just opinions backed with guns. I learned in kindergarten that violence isn't the way we solve problems. A general principle that I live by is do not initiate violence against my fellow man. But that is the main function of government. Walter E Williams - (Government Is) The Enemy Of The People http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeNegcGzhek
John Johnson More government violence to solve problems caused by government violence. I'm guessing that it will take an economic catastrophe for people to figure it out. That, or it will lead to the next Hitler. That is what usually happens.
John Johnson If the fiat currency is more valuable than gold, then why did the price of gold go from $20 per ounce to $1550 (or whatever it is now) in the hundred years since the Federal Reserve has controlled the supply and interest rates of dollars? If people are starving, food would be the most important commodity. But if people starve in America, it will be directly related to monetary policy.
John Johnson We are in a deflationary collapse. The dollar is not booming because the economy is growing. The economy is shrinking and the money supply is shrinking with it. The Federal Reserve won't let the banking system fail, so the only solution is more printing. Dodd-Frank did not fix the banking system. If you don't understand how fragile the system, you probably won't until there after the next major crisis. You might understand in a few years.
