Moral and Ethical Consideration (1)

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Anarchism / Voluntaryism, Logic, Philosophy | Posted on 11-01-2017

Some things are outside of the scope of morality and/or ethics.

When we ask questions about what is moral or ethical, we limit those questions to certain areas or topics or considerations. We do not ask whether it is murder to put rocks in a rock crusher. We do not ponder the ethics or morality of our actions when we dip a piece of celery or a baby carrot from a veggie platter into some delicious dip and eat it.

Rocks, carrots, celery, and many other things do not enter into our sense of what is moral or ethical.

When we mow the grass, we do not think about the feelings or life of our lawns. The same goes for trimming the hedges and trees around our homes.

Similarly, we do not think of the decision to drink coffee or tea as moral or ethical decisions, because they aren’t.

Whether we wear beige or grey or navy blue pants is another decision that is outside of the scope of morals and ethics.

But this is no surprise. Morality has a defined scope.

In the next post on this topic, we’ll look at some simple examples where morality begins to come into the equation, and how it can be blurry.

I’ve decided to write a series of non-linear posts that I’ll later reconstruct into a more coherent argument.

My next few posts will go over some rather simple things — things that may or may not be controversial. I’ll be referring back to them along the way here and there.

For the most part, they’ll be things that most people would agree with.

The latter few will be deeply troubling.

However, at the very least, for those capable of understanding or appreciating an argument, they should all be entertaining, and more-so towards the end.

 

US Marshal Shuts Down Cynic.me for Security Theatre

So Deputy United States Marshal Criminal Investigator Maxime Vales (or one of his criminal cohorts) violated the TERM & CONDITIONS for the use of this site to view this (now password protected) page:

http://cynic.me/2014/10/24/silk-road-judge-doxxed-and-msm-lies-about-it/

He then contacted my Canadian hosting provider about it and had them take my site down today. (I’ve since gotten it back up, obviously!)

The post is about an Ars Technica article that falsely claims that this article (.onion link requires TOR) contains death threats against Katherine Bolan Forrest, who is the judge in the “Silk Road” case against Ross Ulbricht. There is no death threat in there. It’s not nice, but it isn’t a death threat either. Ars Technica lied.

For the sake of ease, completeness, and transparency (something that is completely foreign to government), I posted the entire unredacted, uncensored article (it’s not hard to find – more info below). This seems to have pissed off the US Marshals who sent this to my hosting provider:

Please be advised that the personal security of a United States Marshals Service protected person has been threatened by way of dox. United States District Court Judge Katherine Bolan Forrest’s restricted personal identifiable information, in violation of the Court Security Act of 2007 has been made public on the below listed website that is connected to GoDaddy as the sponsoring registrar. I am requesting that this restricted personal information be immediately removed from the website in order to ensure that no further threats to the security of Judge Forrest are carried out. I am also requesting that a representative from the legal department contact me as soon as possible regarding this sensitive matter.

This is nothing more than security theatre and scare-mongering. If anyone were to do anything to that judge, it would already have happened.

The original dox (.onion link requires TOR) link from the wiki site now returns a 404, but the dox archive (.onion link requires TOR) is still up, and the dox can be found here (.onion link requires TOR).

None of these things are difficult to find. Whether or not I publish the information is completely irrelevant to the security of the judge. Like, FFS… Justin Bieber has dox published (.onion link requires TOR), and he’s still alive!!! There are probably a lot more crazies out there that want him dead.

TERMS & CONDITIONS

I have made it explicitly clear that nobody in any government position is welcome at Cynic.me. That includes US marshals.

Unless Maxime Vales is psychic, I really have no clue how he could possibly abide by the T&C and know what was on that page, or any page at Cynic.me for that matter.

CENSORSHIP & CHILLING EFFECTS

There is no law against publishing publicly available information, which the information at the links above is.

This does nothing to protect the judge at all as I’ve outline above just how simple it is to find the information. A blog dedicated to technology, voluntaryism, and personal points of interest that has near zero readership except for a few popular posts isn’t going to make the smallest impact at all.

This is merely overreach and an attempt to scare me and others from publishing information that the US police state finds inconvenient.

If this can happen to me, it can happen to you. Whether or not you agree with anything I say isn’t particularly relevant. The point to free speech is to tolerate dissenting opinions.

HE SHOULD SIMPLY HAVE CONTACTED ME!

Maxime Vales is really a bit of a douche. Instead of contacting me and asking nicely, he went nuclear to have my site taken down.

But I most certainly would have taken it down had he just asked. Albeit, I would have to charge him a reasonable service fee. I think 144,341 bitcoins plus an additional 29,659 bitcoins as an “administrative fee” would be reasonable. (Ross certainly wouldn’t need to worry about paying for his defense anymore.)

WHAT TO DO?

Well, I certainly don’t want armed thugs harassing me for publishing publicly available information, so I’ve password protected the page for the moment. I’m a bit worried that the 8 character, lower case password might be easy to guess. Nah. I’m not worried. I’m sure it’s just fine.

If anyone has any good information, my ears are open.

DOUCHEBAGGERY

Now, I know that some people will say that it’s douchey to post dox information. Perhaps it is. But it’s more important to be open, transparent, and complete.

The point of my blog post was to point out blatant lies in the presstitute corporate-whore dinosaur lamestream media. They regular twist facts and often blatantly lie. This was one of those cases.

The issue was about a darkweb wiki post. I posted the entire article along with a link to it. Everything could be verified by checking my own post, and by checking the original.

You see, some of us out here actually believe in free speech (even speech that some people don’t like) and honesty, which we don’t get from the lamestream media.

I’m not interested in shining a flashlight on lies if I can shine a spotlight.

Remember:

THE FBI DOXED ROSS ULBRICHT FIRST!

Poison in Alternative Media: The Real News and Reason TV

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Anarchism / Voluntaryism, Awake, Cynicism, Idiotic Statements, Logic, Philosophy, Rant | Posted on 02-05-2014

The alternative media delivers a far more accurate and better picture about what is going on in the world, but there are times when they have catastrophic failures and present the same talking points that you would expect from the bobble heads on MSNBC. No matter the source, one must always be vigilant to think critically about what is being said and not blindly trust a source simply because they’ve been correct in the past.

I recently saw 2 extreme failures (or perhaps lapses in judgement). One failure led me to abandon a particular source, while another caused me to lose a lot of respect for a journalist who I would otherwise consider near impeccable.

THE REAL NEWS

In what can only be considered a bubonic nuclear train wreck, Jaisal Noor of The Real News interviewed Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is a leftist hate organisation that targets pretty much anyone that isn’t a neo-liberal communist. While they may “get it right” about some organisations, they group together people like Judge Andrew Napolitano and Ron Paul with organisations such as Stormfront.

Jaisal’s interview stopped short of being completely obsequious, but was never-the-less simply pandering to the extreme agenda of the SPLC. Listening to Mark Potok spew his venom and hatred either makes you vomit uncontrollably, or laugh hysterically at his lunacy.

This is that interview:

The lies and deceit out of Mark’s mouth start quick and never stop; he doesn’t waste much time before getting to “racist and anti-semitic”.

But do watch for yourself. If you wonder about any of the points Mark makes, you can easily do a tiny bit of digging to discover that he is lying or twisting the situation.

The comments below the video are filled with people unsubscribing from The Real News.

I got into a mini-discussion on Twitter with Jaisal, condemning his choice to give a platform to a hate group.

https://twitter.com/jaisalnoor/status/457520668914245632

Of course the land issue became “HE’S A RACIST”:

https://twitter.com/jaisalnoor/statuses/459354921746583553

your nut job rancher hero is a raging racist

Which should come as no surprise. The left invariably resorts to name-calling as it loses the debate due to a lack of logic, reason, and supporting facts/evidence.

But whether or not someone is or isn’t a racist has no bearing on their property rights. Though you wouldn’t know this if you’d ever heard any of the rhetoric from the left. For the left, it seems that natural rights are contingent upon your agreement with them.

Had Jaisal taken the time to actually look into what Cliven Bundy said, he would be hard pressed to accuse him of being racist. You can find Cliven Bundy’s remarks here:

And here with a full transcript of what he said, which you can compare against the convenient snippets found in the left-wing media:

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/04/24/cliven-bundy-controversial-remarks-full-context-video-with-transcript/

For the full video, which is over an hour long, check here:

http://bambuser.com/v/4549915

One of the problems with the left is that leftist rarely ever give anything a charitable read. Their goal is to root out anything that could possibly be (mis)construed as other than what it is so that they can exploit it for political purposes. No big surprise there.

But, all the evidence is readily available and out in the open for anyone to verify.

REASON.TV

I was pretty shocked to hear Nick Gillespie in this video:

Reason.TV and Nick Gillespie are generally pretty darn good. They’re still pretty statist, but minarchism is a good deal closer to sanity than the authoritarianism preached by the left-wing communists and the right-wing fascists. (Is there a difference between them?)

The article for the video is here:

http://reason.com/archives/2014/04/29/3-policies-that-are-more-racist-than-don

From the video:

“Racist rants by federal land moocher Cliven Bundy…”

Seriously Nick? Really? At that point I figured that I’d stepped into the twilight zone. I lost a lot of respect for Reason and Nick there.

Speaking about Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling:

They can go fuck themselves.

Apparently Nick got his news about Bundy from Salon and MSNBC.

NOTE: I don’t watch professional sports. I have zero interest in the athletes, coaches, or team owners. I’ve not read anything significant about Donald Sterling or the accusations against him, and have nothing to say on that topic. So, maybe Nick is right about Donald going off and fucking himself. I don’t know.

Nick is way off base in his comments about Cliven Bundy. But aside from Nick accusing Bundy of being racist, perhaps more concerning are his accusation that Bundy is a “moocher” and assertion that the land belongs to the federal government. Nick’s accusation there is eerily reminiscent of what one would expect to hear out of the SPLC, while his assertion is flat-out statist.

The rest of the article is actually quite good. He nails 3 good points with good support and arguments. The “meat” of the article isn’t objectionable – it is his use of racism and Bundy as a “launch pad” for the article that is off-base.

POISON

While the first case with The Real News is more akin to a drinking glass full of poison on a generously prepared banquet table, the second case is far more subtle/insidious. Nick slips in a poison pill into what otherwise would have been a wonderful, tall glass of freshly squeezed juice. i.e. Where The Real News had an entire episode full of poison, Reason.TV merely poisoned a portion of the episode.

SCRUTINY & VIGILANCE

I won’t be watching any of The Real News anymore. The magnitude of the lack of judgement in giving the SPLC a platform is simply far too much to continue to attribute any credibility to them. i.e. There is no point in watching complete garbage and trying to make sense of it.

On the other hand, I’ll still continue to watch Reason.TV and read Reason. However, I will certainly be much more suspicious about what they report from now on.

Everyone has a lapse of judgement or makes an error every now and then. Expecting otherwise would be foolish.

I suppose the take-away lesson from the above is that even from sources that you would normally trust, it is still best to listen and read with a critical mind and not simply accept what is being presented to you. (This blog post included.)

At the end of the day, we are all responsible for our own beliefs and actions. Very often we are deceived into believing horrible things. But it is not the “being deceived” that is the fault – it is the refusal to see through a deception that is a fault. This requires that we question our beliefs with the same or greater vigilance that we would apply to the messages we receive through others and the media, be that mainstream media or the alternative media.

Jesus Is an Anarchist (Mirrored essay)

There is an excellent essay called “Jesus Is an Anarchist” at http://www.anti-state.com/redford/redford4.html.

But it seems like Anti-state.com is no longer maintained, and the essay may disappear at some point. I’m mirroring it here to ensure that it is available in at least 1 other place. When the “anti-state.com” graphic logo is gone, then you’ll know that it’s disappeared.

This essay is an excellent read for anyone looking to learn a bit more about Jesus, Christianity, or anarchism. You don’t need to be religious to get a lot out of this essay, and you don’t need to be an anarchist to get a lot out of it.

As a side note, anyone interested in the occult will get some pretty deep insight here. I should also note that those with a superficial understanding of the occult will likely not understand that last sentence in the least. (“Occult” means “hidden”, and Redford strips away some superficial occult layers in this essay.)

Those who are more serious about reading and understanding might do well to read along with a KJV at the ready. Please note that there is a reference in the essay that appears to be a typo.

The complete essay is available at the bottom of this page as a zipped download.

 


Jesus Is an Anarchist

(A free-market/libertarian anarchist, that is–otherwise what is called an anarcho-capitalist.)

The above title may seem like strong words, for surely that can’t be correct? Jesus an anarchist? One must be joking, right?

Why Rich People Should Do Less Time in Prison Than Poor People

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Anarchism / Voluntaryism, Logic, Philosophy, Stupid Questions | Posted on 18-04-2014

Tags: , ,

V is for VoluntaryRich people should do less prison time for the same crimes compared to poor people. Here’s why.

In the modern world, you must pay taxes or you go to prison.

If tax is not theft, then the government owns a percentage of the results/rewards/consequences of your labour/time.

In other words, you are not solely responsible for the consequences of your actions. The government assumes a percentage of the rewards/consequences of your actions through tax. (If they could take your smiles and laughs, I’m sure they would.)

However, different people pay different rates of tax, depending on how much they earn.

For example, someone making a little may pay 25% of the fruits of their labour to the government as tax, whereas someone who earns much more may pay 75% of what they earn to the government.

In both cases the government steps in to assume ownership or responsibility for a percentage.

Now, if two people in different tax brackets commit the same crime, would it not make sense for the government to be consistent in its role of assuming the consequences of people’s actions, e.g. the rewards of the fruits of people’s labours (consequences of their actions), should they not equally assume that same responsibility for negative consequences?

On a 10 year prison sentence, it would then be just for the poor person in the 25% tax bracket to only do 7.5 years in prison (25% belongs to the state), whereas it would be most just for the wealthy person in the 75% tax bracket to do a maximum of 2.5 years in prison (75% belongs to the state).

Rich people should be less accountable than poor people under the law because the law works by percentages, and everyone must be treated equally under the law according to the rule of law. Of percentages. Because logic. Errr… science… err…

Ahem…

Or maybe tax is just slavery by a percentage, and that’s the problem that should be dealt with, and the only way for the rule of law to be upheld is for NOBODY to take what doesn’t belong to them whether it be a percentage or an entirety.

The Pledge of Resistance – Saul Williams – Anarchast Intro

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Anarchism / Voluntaryism, Awake, Bitcoin, Philosophy | Posted on 04-04-2014

I remember walking down the street in downtown Gangnam many years ago and someone trying to give me a pamphelt with “The Pledge of Resistance” and “Not in Our Names” on it. I took the pamphlet, glanced at it, and figured it was some nonsense socialist garbage. I wasn’t interested in yet another “save the children” bit of nonsense that was “probably” the exact opposite of what it purported to be. I already “knew” that whatever cause was being pimped out was 99% likely to be doing the exact opposite.

After all, aren’t all the “activists” socialist assholes? I don’t know what I did with it. I probably threw it out.

But I was wrong and I missed out then.

Jeff Berwick used that as the intro to his Anarchast show on Youtube. It’s powerful.

Pure, power.

SAUL WILLIAMS PLEDGE OF RESISTANCE

We believe that it is our
responsibility to resist the injustices
done by our government,
in our names.

Not in our name
will you wage endless war
there can be no more deaths
no more transfusions
of blood for oil.

Not in our name
will you invade countries
bomb civilians, kill more children
letting history take its course
over the graves of the nameless.

Not in our name
will you erode the very freedoms
you have claimed to fight for.

Not by our hands
will we supply weapons and funding
for the annihilation of families
on foreign soil.

Not by our mouths
will we let fear silence us.

Not by our hearts
will we allow whole peoples
or countries to be deemed evil.

Not by our will
and Not in our name.

We pledge resistance.

We pledge alliance with those
who have come under attack
for voicing opposition to the war
or for their religion or ethnicity.

We pledge to make common cause
with the people of the world
to bring about justice,
freedom and peace.

Another world is possible
and we pledge to make it real.

The music in the Anarchast intro really adds a lot to that. It’s really well done.

I recently won the AllCrypt t-shirt slogan contest. I put forth 43 different slogans with several of them being variations of quotes from that poem by Saul Williams. I’m very happy to say that AllCrypt has chosen several of the entries I submitted, and one of them was based on that poem by Saul Williams:

Another world is possible, and we pledge to make it real.
– Saul Williams, The Pledge of Resistance

That’s some pretty powerful stuff.

The winner blog post is here:

https://www.allcrypt.com/blog/2014/04/winner-of-the-t-shirt-slogan-contest/

They’ve chosen 4 of my entries (some edited):

Silly: Mega Doge Sex Nuts. Yeah, we have those.

Drugs: Wanna legally buy some POT and METH with Bitcoin? (Tweaking wording before it goes to print. We’ve gone through 8 revisions. We’re indecisive)

Political: Another world is possible, and we pledge to make it real. – Saul Williams, The Pledge of Resistance

Suggestive: We do it DOGE style.

Now, I really like all of those. And they’re going to send me a t-shirt, so I have to choose one… That’s a tough call. I want to promote crypto. I want to promote so many things, but to choose just one… I have to go with #3 there. Saul Williams has such a beautiful piece of spoken poetry there.

I don’t want to just make people laugh; I want to make them think.

As Jeff Berwick would say…

Peace, love, and anarchy.

Huntercoin: Welcome to the Blockchain!

0

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Bitcoin, Logic, Philosophy, Software | Posted on 24-02-2014

Tags: , , , ,

Huntercoin-logoHuntercoin is a crypto currency game that is played on the blockchain. This is significant, and particularly that “played on the blockchain” part.

The blockchain is a public ledger of account that can be used for currency transfers, assets, smart contracts, smart property, snippets of code, escrow, distributed companies, distributed property, and yes – even GAMES!

But all of that seems very distant, abstract, and probably even bizarre. What is a “smart contract”? What is a “distributed exchange”? What is…? What can I do practically? What use is this? How can I visualise this?

Forget all that. Let’s just play a game. Huntercoin… It will all become much clearer soon…

Players send orders to the Huntercoin network. They do this through client software, or what you might think of as “the game program”. Their orders are registered in the blockchain then read by all the other players as they download the latest block in the blockchain and process the orders for all the other players.

Since everything is done securely through cryptography, nobody can fake orders or ignore orders or change them. The only thing you can do is see what happened. We’ll look more at this below.

Now, if you’ve played Huntercoin, or if you’ve read in the forums, you’ll have encountered the deadly “Pending” monster that seems to go on forever sometimes. You’ll also see the game speed up or slow down.

I’m a bit fuzzy on “pending” and stuck transactions. You can run “huntercoin-qt.exe -rescan” though, and that should “unstick” the transaction. However, that will take a while for the client to start again. The other options are to “deletetransaction” or “rebroadcast” the transaction.

For the speeding up and slowing down issue, this is quite interesting. To understand what’s happening, you need to know a few basic things about crypto currency mining.

Miners all compete for a block. They solve very difficult mathematical puzzles that can take longer or shorter to solve. The difficulty factor changes to cause the problem to become more or less difficult, and that change regulates the time it takes to “find a block” to “about” 1 block every X minutes, depending on the coin.

Bitcoin blocks come at a rate of about 1 every 10 minutes. Litecoin takes about 2.5 minutes. Huntercoin has 2 algorithms, SHA-256 and scrypt, set to find blocks every 2 minutes, and averaging to 1 block per minute due to there being 2 algorithms.

As blocks are found on the Huntercoin blockchain, a turn is processed. Here’s a table showing some blocks found with the times and algorithms.

Id Date Algo Time since last block
63979 23/02/14 13:00:51 sha256 0:00:07
63978 23/02/14 13:00:44 scrypt 0:00:21

63971 23/02/14 12:54:40 scrypt 0:00:51
63970 23/02/14 12:53:49 sha256 0:00:53
63969 23/02/14 12:52:56 sha256 0:00:47
63968 23/02/14 12:52:09 scrypt 0:00:56
63967 23/02/14 12:51:13 sha256 0:00:51
63966 23/02/14 12:50:22 sha256 0:01:54
63965 23/02/14 12:48:28 scrypt Average time: 0:00:53

There you can see that the actual algorithm that finds a block fluctuates. You can also see a 7 second block, a 14 second block, and a 1:54 block. But the average time there is 53 seconds, which is pretty close to 1 minute. A larger sample would push that number closer to 1 minute.

Gamers that are expecting a perfectly linear flow-of-time will be disappointed. Time does not flow in a perfectly linear fashion on the blockchain – it flows in averages.

But this really only adds to the challenge of the game. It adds a dimension that we’ve not really seen before in real-time games – non-linear time. While some gamers will complain about this, they should embrace it as it is not going to change because that’s the nature of the blockchain. It’s simply better to accept it and deal with it. If you can use it to your advantage, that’s what we call “skill”.

In the game, since you’re publishing your orders, they are all out in the open for anyone to read. Here’s an actual example:

{
    "color" : 3,
    "0" : {
        "x" : 94,
        "y" : 453,
        "dir" : 9,
        "stay_in_spawn_area" : 0,
        "loot" : 0.00000000
    },
    "1" : {
        "x" : 248,
        "y" : 435,
        "fromX" : 245,
        "fromY" : 441,
        "wp" : [
            252,
            427,
            248,
            375,
            248,
            373,
            248,
            370,
            246,
            361,
            242,
            357,
            217,
            349,
            206,
            343,
            155,
            292,
            154,
            286,
            142,
            271
        ],
        "dir" : 8,
        "stay_in_spawn_area" : 0,
        "loot" : 0.27500000
    }
}

Under “1” you’ll see the x & y coordinates (248,435). You’ll also see “wp”, which is the set of waypoints for the hunter. Those are where the hunter will go, if nothing happens in the meantime.

So you can see exactly where players are going!

Does that ruin the game?

Absolutely not! At any time that hunter could change course or do something different at any time, e.g. destruct and kill surrounding hunters that are a different colour.

But sending those orders leaves the player free to do other things and not worry too much about sending more orders for that particular hunter. This balances the need to keep your plans secret with the need to not enter every single step.

So, what does this mean for playing so far? Well, probably that you should plan your moves 2 blocks ahead. When you send your orders by clicking the “Go” button, you often end up waiting for a couple blocks. A little bit of planning can remedy this, and your game will go a bit smoother.

That’s a quick look at Huntercoin, the blockchain, and how to play with a better understanding of the blockchain.

Hopefully I’ve given you a better understanding of Huntercoin and how it uses the blockchain to enable a game. And hopefully you can imagine other ways that the blockchain can be used for smart contracts, property, distributed companies, and many, many more as of yet unimagined uses for the blockchain.

If you’re not already onboard the Bitcoin/crypto train, it’s far from too late. This is early. Get on board for the fast-track to the future of transactional systems.

Central Banking – A Century of Failure

Posted by Cynic | Posted in Awake, Bitcoin, Logic, Philosophy, Police State, Politics, Poverty, Solutions to Problems | Posted on 22-12-2013

Tags:

The last century has been a complete catastrophe for money/currency. The criminal banksters won in a stealth move on December 23rd, 1913. Since then, they have managed to create more wars and death than at any point in history.

The central banking disease has since spread to almost the entire world. With control of the Iranian central bank now falling into the clutches of the central banksters, it seems only Cuba and North Korea remain, and they don’t need any help in creating misery – they’ve got communism to help them fail there.

But is seems appropriate that after a century of financial terrorism inflicted on the people of the world, that 2013 would be the rise of Bitcoin and crypto currency. Decentralised through a peer-to-peer network, crytpo currencies are faster, easier, and cheaper to use than the worthless digitally controlled fiat printed by the central banksters.

2014 will be an interesting year as crypto currencies consolidate their position as a sane alternative to the destruction wrought by the banks. Major retailers will begin accepting Bitcoins while smaller operations begin accepting Bitcoins and other crypto currencies.

There will be more turmoil as the banksters fight back. They will use the state as their weapon. They will push for regulations and laws. Their arguments boil down to only a few:

  • Terrorism
  • Drugs
  • Child porn
  • Tax evasion
  • Centralisation

They might come up with something else, but it’s unlikely. There is no good reason to not use decentralised crypto currency. Ultimately, it’s about control. And if they lose control of the money supply, they lose their ability to steal from people.

The banksters will use their puppets in government to attempt to create legislation that makes using crypto currency impractical. They will attempt to create new bureaucracies and legal hurdles that make complying with the law either impossible or impractical. They will use the state to attack the people as they always do. They are monopolists. They cannot compete because they have no skill sets that are worth paying for. They require the violence of the state to compel people to their will.

They won’t win. Too many people know what they are – vampires sucking the life blood out of humanity.

We’ve had a century of failure. It’s high time for the demise of the banksters and a century of prosperity. Well, more than just a century of prosperity, I hope. So long as people study what really happened in history, they’ll fight to keep the banksters staked and in their coffins.
