The 'violence' of government interference and how to resist it


Bill Frenzel, a former Republican congressman from Minnesota, explained in an interview with The Washington Post the complicated duality of American thinking on Socialist policies enacted in the United States: "If you're a compassionate liberal, you say, 'Isn't it wonderful we're helping everybody?' and if you're a constitutional conservative, you say, 'How did the government get into all these things? I don't see these things in the Constitution; it's bewildering, get rid of it.'"

This brings to the forefront a fundamental split in American political ideologies: What is the proper role of the Federal government in the lives of citizens?

Regardless of where you stand on this issue, the fact remains that millions of people depend on the Federal government for some or all of their income.

This is as intended by the Elites.

Recall that one of the 10 planks of Communism is the "extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands and the improvement of the soil, generally in accordance with a common plan."

It might not seem related, but extending the State's control over production is accomplished through price controls, for example on communications and energy utilities via their government-supported monopolies, or subsidies for favored industries like Big Agra (also supported by an entire government agency, the USDA, ostensibly there to "protect" consumers, but actually existing to promote favored U.S. agricultural products.)

The State's control over business is nothing short of violence against American citizens. How so? Let's hear from The Zero Aggression Project's Perry Willis.

Violent prices vs. non-violent prices

Willis writes that "A nonviolent price is any price a buyer and seller voluntarily agree to, without coercion." Stocks and commodities, for example, have "bid" and "ask" pricing. The seller asks for a price, and you get to bid, and you both agree as to the final price. This is an example of nonviolent pricing (although, in a minute, I'll show you why even this has been turned against us).

A violent price is, well, any price set using the threat of violence, such as a minimum wage "law" (you must obey the law or be punished), Obamacare health insurance pricing, other compulsory government dictates and regulations (anything where you have no choice but to accept The State's definition of how something should be done), and taxation (the actual threat of violence should you fail to comply).

We can clearly see how the government's violent pricing over the last few years with lockdowns, increased taxation and income redistribution, among other government mandates, policies and socialist schemes, purport to "help" people, but in point of fact tilt the economy towards hyperinflation and economic ruin.

Violence-based prices cause economic disparities. Non-violent prices foster economic equality.

This is violence inherent in the system that is as invisible to the people as the system itself... but we always hope to change that by pointing out these disparities and inequalities, and how to avoid the violence against us inherent in them.

Also, remember that the system engenders official U.S. policy that is geared toward the destruction of the predominantly white, productive American middle class. The middle class is the globalist/elitist's chief nemesis. For as the American middle class contains the world's greatest producers, Americans also demand equitable reward for their labor and product, placing them in competition for resources and goods with the global elite.

The greatest blows to the middle class were the violent pricing policies of income taxation and the regulation of free trade, because socialist economic warfare is the most reliable way to transfer the wealth of middle-class Americans to the elite without awakening their complaint.

Indeed, because of the altruistic propaganda attached to socialism, Americans often believe that their wealth (and thus their own destruction) is necessary to "save the world." Thus, the billions being sent to Ukraine ostensibly to "fight" the Russians, even though officials admit the money and weapons are going down a black hole. Also as intended. More war equals more profit.

As government continues in its effort to control every aspect of American life, violent pricing warfare against Americans will inevitably turn into physical violence as the people begin to realize the authoritarianism they live under, which incrementally replaced their freedom by a thousand little regulations, mandates, rules, and agreements that were never voted on by anyone, yet accepted by everyone on a very gradual but slippery slope.

This is why I admonish everyone to stay armed, but this also means to arm yourself with financial knowledge and protection, with the information I provide in these Alerts, and each month in my printed The Bob Livingston Letter.

For example, you might wonder, how has the government has kept a lid on their violent pricing scheme for so long?

The deception is even uglier than what I've told you so far. To protect the illusion Wall Street dollar-denominated assets are "rising" in value, a highly-secret quasi-government agency known as the "Exchange Stabilization Fund" (ESF) works with other governments to artificially force the market price of gold downward.

The Exchange Stabilization Fund answers directly to the President and Treasury Secretary with little Congressional oversight (in fact members of Congress I've spoken with seem to know nothing about the ESF).  The ESF directly intervenes in the gold market by aggressively buying and selling the precious metal to prevent it from finding its "natural price" in relation to the dollar and the stock market.

Under our current inflationary environment, this manipulation is what allows both gold and equity prices to move up and down together, when that has not traditionally been the case. Thus, even commodities like gold and equities are now subject to violent pricing due to government interference.

My other admonishment is to always be aware of how you are being misled. As Merrill Jenkins said in Money: The Single Greatest Lie In American History, "The big problem that we have today is that we have so much misinformation. I don't know how many people have been to magicians in the old days but the magician works with misdirection. He leaves you to look at one hand while he does the thing with the other. So [always] think in your mind how we get mislead," and don't allow your brain to be "cluttered with a bunch of nonsense and improper thoughts."

You must understand the violence being done to you by the state before you can resist it.

Yours for the truth,
