Financial Aggression

Someone stole my debit card number and cleaned out my bank account. All the recent "ID verification" stuff the government puts us through didn't stop it from happening. The "partnership" between the bank and the government didn't stop it from happening. All the inconveniences I have put up with just so I can have the convenience of a bank account did nothing to protect my FRNs. So, can't we just have our liberty and privacy back? I am willing to risk having this happen again and again if I could walk into a bank and open an account without being treated like a terrorist. After all, my money is gone either way. In the long run, I'd much rather have my liberty and privacy back, and keep the thieves, governmental and freelance, out of my bank account. It would be a small price to pay, since, as those who don't understand what they are saying often say "Freedom is not free".

PS: I'm fine, so don't worry.

You Don't Have to be an Anarchist.....

You don't have to be an anarchist once you acknowledge that government is a very bad thing. After all, I know people who understand that there are associations in their lives that are harmful to them, but they do not break away. There are also those who keep thinking that with just the right tweak, government will become a wonderful protector and provider; a nursemaid in their feeble twilight years. And leprechauns will bless us all with pots of gold as we ride off into the Eastern sunset on the backs of multicolored flying unicorns..... Sorry.

So, you don't have to be an anarchist once you face the truth about government, but when you do face the facts, why would you not free yourself from fealty to the Clowns of Coercion? After all, you don't need them; they need you.
