I haven't posed on this website in several years, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
About 1 year ago Jeff Berkwick wrote this article:
It changed my life. Six months ago I moved to China. I have not felt this free in a long time. There are a lot of sucky things about China. But overall my life is better and my standard of living is higher. I've even met the love of my life (she happens to be from the old USSR, actually).
I got tired of all the talk. "Fight!" "All we have to do is get rid of the Fed and then life will be great!" "Don't you want to stay for the war? We have so many guns!"
Don't be an idiot who gets himself killed in another senseless banker war. Don't stick around for martial law after the next terrorist attack.
Life is too short. I got tired of fighting for the freedom of those who don't care about it. I decided to listen to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I decided to stop throwing my pearls (time, blood, sweat, toil, and tears) to the swine. I realized it is a waste of life to 'fight for freedom' when it is so easy to find in this world. You don't need to fight for freedom. You are already free. Your acceptance of your slavery is your own choice. Today, choose differently. You only get one life on this earth. While mine belongs to Him, it is on loan to me and to me alone. I don't owe it to anyone. I won't be a slave who fights for freedom for those who choose to continue to enslave me. (Enslave me by voting, by paying taxes, by supporting the system, etc.)
One of the things I am most satisfied with is that I ENDED THE FED. Yes, the Fed still prints money. Yes, blah blah blah. But for me, in my life, the Fed is ended. It is no more for me. I did it single handedly. The only way ending it can be done. Jesus said, "Who's image and printing is on this money?" "Caesar's." "Then give it back to Caesar." You are a slave to the Fed only so long as you let yourself be their slave. Can you be 100% free? Not very easily. But you can become much freer. [Disclaimer: I have some FRNs still, but not too much. And some assets in the US. But if they all disappear tomorrow, it's fine for me. Their money doesn't control me anymore.]
Now my money has comrade Mao on it. I don't think I can end all of the central banks, but I ended the most powerful one. For now, that's good enough. Maybe next year I will end another one.
Like I said, there are lots of problems with China. But you know what? I left America. When I get tired of China (probably within a year I'll be done), I can MOVE ON. Thailand? Chile? Cambodia? Turkey? It's a big, freer, rich and growing rich world.
I believe that the constitution is dead. The republic is dead. They keep celebrating the birthday (July 4) of a dead nation. US citizens are totally messed up in the head (minus people like us) and they refuse to change. Fine. God bless them and theirs. I will my separate peace. Bad times are coming. Maybe I'll go back in a decade. Ron Paul lost. Rand won't win. And even if he did it's too late.
Go. Now. You are already free. Take it.
(If you want more details about China, what I do, what you might be able to do, etc, please feel free to comment on this post. We can email privately. I'd be happy to help you in any way that I can.)
