Jeffrey Tucker

In an extended interview on Capital Account, Laissez-Faire Books executive editor Jeffrey Tucker explains why the digital world is innovative, service minded, and growing, whereas so many parts of the physical world ruled by government are decrepit and dying. He also covers the threat of government regulation of the Internet, the problems introduced by the declining quality of money, the case against antitrust regulation, and the central plan that overrides the wishes of consumers in favor of the interests of the political class.

    Jeffrey,

    A most excellent interview; I enjoyed the whole thing even thought the young lady was a little too bubbly. You did good.

    Heinlein’s character, Lazarus Long, said it some forty years ago: “Government does not exist for the benefit of the governed.”

    “Time grows so short for action through knowledge.” Gyeorgos Ceres Hatonn
    “We call the IRS Regulations a “Code,” because a “Code” is a language always written in such a way that those who do not know the encryption and special meanings of the words, such as “Label”, cannot figure it out in a hundred years…” Pardon Me, but… #5 (Nord Davis. Jr.)

    The District of Columbia (The District) has created adhesion contracts (i.e. birth certificate, drivers license, voter registration, 1040), and has kept their true purpose a secret. All paper created by “The District” are contracts, they NEED a signature, this makes the signer “liable’ for “The District” debt.

    These “hidden” contracts are what make you “subject to” “The District’ rules and regulations as YOU just signed and made yourself surety http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surety.

    The Federal Reserve is an unconstitutional private company that our public servants (1913) put in charge of creating the country’s currency. The bankers got paid in gold, the public servants got the paper to spend and now didn’t have to go directly to the people.

    When the public servants ran out of gold they started using (and continue to use) “We the People” as collateral. (Research!!).

    The elected officials continue to allow the FED to exist. It makes it easier for them to spend other peoples’ money without being accountable.

    The collection arm of this private company (Federal Reserve) is the IRS. What, you think the bankers would trust the public servants with collection?
    The politicians will NEVER End the Fed! It is their sanctioned creation and useful cover. So what to do?

    Educate Yourself. Stop the transfusion, and DEFUND “The District”.

    Know the difference between “lawful” and “legal”. A population cannot be “ignorant and free”.
    The legal definitions of ‘sui juris’, ‘propria persona’, and “pro se”, and what Contracts you have unwittingly signed.

    The sovereign States created the Federal District via the Constitution. Since the War and Emergency Powers Act of 1933 suspended the Constitution (Research!!)
    http://www.barefootsworld.net/war_ep.html – the states gave “The District” (the created) power over the States (the creator). The States have never reclaimed their sovereignty. http://www.allgov.com/Controversies/ViewNews/Illinois_Tries_to_Opt_Out_of_Federal_Deportation_Program_110511

    Know who you are “at Law”, that Contract Law is the ONLY law of the courts and get out from under “The District”.

The economist Milton Friedman didn’t go far enough when he said, “Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.” Oftentimes, that power is rendered more harmful -- to the point of Hormegeddon -- the better the intentions behind it.
