sovereignman.com / by Simon Black / June 7, 2012 New York City One of the great absurdities of our modern financial system is that a nation living within its means, i.e. spending less than what it confiscates in tax revenue, is no longer the norm. Living within your means is now considered ‘austerity’. And unfair. Whether in […]
Blindly delegating responsibility to uncaring, and irresponsibly negligent, government authority has become a pervasive social meme of US, European, and Asian culture. Our interests would be better served by taking personal responsibility. This holds especially so for citizens of Japan who need to ask themselves several questions based on logic;

Greece starts another day without government after wrangling politicians continue to fail to agree a coalition after last Sunday’s elections. The leader of the second-largest party has refused to join any administration which pledges to stick to the co…
endoftheamericandream / April 20th, 2012 Debt is a “soft” form of slavery. In America today, it is not legal to bind people up with chains and force them to work for you, but that doesn’t mean that there are not millions upon millions of slaves in this country. When you borrow money, you willingly become […]
People on the hard left and right of politics rarely find anything to agree on – but in France, that’s exactly how candidates are wooing presidential votes. As Tesa Arcilla reports from Paris, it’s causing support to leak away from the frontrunner favo…
Sovereign Man by Simon Black March 29, 2012 Santiago, Chile It wasn’t too long ago that nearly every human being lived their entire lives without traveling more than 10-miles from home. For the small handful of people who actually did venture out, you could make it across the globe with no official documents whatsoever. This […]
