I met my friend, Morpheus (now in federal custody), in 2005 at a meeting of the Libertarian Party of Palm Beach County in Florida. At the time I was struck by how quickly he understood the ethics lessons that I was teaching then. We quickly became good friends and stayed in touch after he moved to Arizona about 6 months later.

In 2012, just 12 months to the day after my wife’s death, I pulled up stakes and moved to the Phoenix area to become part of the freedom activist community in which Morpheus was a well known participant. Since then I’ve had many opportunities to admire his honesty, courage and fortitude in resisting the evils of mala prohibita (victimless “crimes”) enforcement.

The price he has paid for his extraordinary freedom has been severe. He has been robbed of multiple vehicles, beaten, tased, cuffed, kidnapped, strait-jacketed, prosecuted, fined, and caged just for being free – NOT for harming anyone. In fact, he is currently in prison for buying and selling BitCoins – a commodity comprised of strings of numbers and letters. What could be more absurd?

He was arrested on April the 20th while making a BitCoin deal, and then his apartment was raided and he was charged with owning a handful of ammunition that was found in his apartment (no guns though). So now the feds are trying to build a case against him, probably for “money laundering”, but they have as yet not charged him and have not specified a “probable cause” for his arrest. Meanwhile they won’t let him bail because they consider him a “flight risk” – which in fact he is NOT. And he is languishing in prison until a hearing or trial scheduled for August.

So I am appealing to all you freedom-loving, anarchist, libertarian, or constitutionalist, “activists” to ante-up for Morpheus’s defense – because if you don’t step up and help him, there will likely be no one to come to your defense when the Nazi thugs come for YOU… and they will I can guarantee.
I’ve talked to attorney  Marc Victor on Morpheus’s behalf, and he will charge $800 just to go out to where Morpheus is being held and do an initial interview. His actual defense in court is likely to run tens of thousands of dollars.

This case is likely to be a precedent setter. The federal government cannot afford to let anyone buy, sell, or financially transact anything without their demanding a slice of the revenue (in taxes).  So the outcome of this case could result in your total financial enslavement, OR it could set a precedent that will legitimize the first truly free market on the planet in over 8,000 years.

Make no mistake. Unless we defend Morpheus with every resource available to us, his fate will eventually become ours. If you don’t want to rot in some gulag, donate for his defense while you still can.

BitCoins: Gateway to Doom and Freedom


BitCoins: Gateway to Doom and Freedom!

Free at Last!

Make no mistake. Thanks to BitCoins, the status quo is doomed and a new age of freedom is at hand. The tiny elite group of people who run the world today don’t know it yet, but their power is finally at an end. They are like zombies – the walking dead.

For thousands of years the world has been dominated by the power ethic – the notion that might makes right. And for thousands of years those with wealth and power have succeeded in enslaving the rest of humanity – first by brute force and subsequently by taxation and regulation – with our unwitting consent. As of today, it is reported that only three countries in the world do not have central banks controlling their governments: Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. Is that any surprise? Those countries have their own forms of enslavement.

In my previous article, I pointed out that in a BitCoin enhanced world:

  • You can buy or sell whatever you wish – with no government imposed prohibitions, no sales tax, and no effective financial surveillance of your transactions.
  • You can make a living in your chosen field and not pay an income tax.
  • The buying power of your income will more than double, and a single earner will again be able to support a family and look forward to a real retirement.
  • You will no longer be subject to any kind of licensing – no driver’s license, no professional license, no building permits, no vehicle registration, no insurance requirements, no fishing license – none of that nonsense.
  • You can own property without paying a property tax.
  • You can travel freely anywhere in the world without having to deal with the TSA, customs and immigration, border patrols, or passports.
  • Protection against dishonest unscrupulous business-people will come from reporting businesses like Angie’s List and Consumer Reports – the perpetrators will be shunned and quickly go out of business.
  • Instead of working in a bureaucratic hierarchy, most will choose to work in a trusted Octologue, where everyone has an equal voice and where work usually feels like play. Creativity will flourish.
  • In this environment you’ll feel that you belong – that you are no longer isolated and alienated from those around you. The world will feel like home, at last.

The price of all this freedom will be the necessity of learning to be personally responsible for yourself and your family. There will be no “nanny state” to take care of you and tell you how to live your life – but you’ll learn not to need the state – and be better off for it.

A Difficult Transition

In the movie, The Matrix, the character Morpheus says (paraphrasing), “To get through the difficult time ahead, we must first shed our fear of it!” And this is what we face today. Many of us fear the uncertainty of the future – especially knowing that the governments of the world, and the central banks that own them, will not give up their power over us without a fight. In the past century governments are estimated to have slaughtered at least 100,000,000 of their own peopleand some estimates run as high as 300,000,000. So why would we expect the elite to hesitate to act similarly today?

To shed our fear of the future – to embrace the possibilities that the future offers, we need to anticipate the likely response of government to the advent of the BitCoin. To that end I am predicting the following steps that governments will take to maintain their power over us by controlling our money:

  • The only parts of the BitCoin system that are vulnerable to government attack are the web-based “exchanges” that facilitate the buying and selling of BitCoins online. To mount this attack the US government is already creating rules that will require BitCoin exchanges to implement the same kind of “know your customers” and “report their transactions” rules that currently apply to commercial banks and money transmitters, like Western Union – thus enabling the government to tax and confiscate BitCoins the way they do dollars. There are, however three reasons why such attacks will fail:
    • BitCoins are inherently anonymous. No one knows who owns them and no government edict can force their owners and users to reveal their identities. So BitCoin exchanges that require their customers to reveal their identity will be shunned by the BitCoin community.Our government is much more dangerous than all the terrorists, money launderers, dope peddlers, porn traffickers, and gun runners combined. I suggest we shun the exchanges that allow them to be “regulated” and support the ones that locate in hospitable offshore jurisdictions or who go underground like the Silk Road.
    • The second reason such attacks on exchanges will fail is because the creation of an exchange is fairly easy to do – and people around the world will be happy to set up new exchanges faster than governments can shut them down.
    • And the third reason attacks on exchanges will fail to destroy the BitCoin economy is that exchanges, while convenient, are not necessary for the success of the BitCoin system. There will always be individual traders around who will buy and sell BitCoins in exchange for the local currency. Let’s support our local BitCoin traders.
    • When attacking the exchanges fails to implode the BitCoin economy, the government’s next step will be to outlaw or prohibit the ownership, possession, and use of BitCoins. Remember what they did to Bernard von Nothaus, creator of the Liberty Dollar. He is awaiting sentencing for his conviction on counterfeiting charges – but his real crime wasn’t counterfeiting at all. It was creating a currency that was much better than our phony-bologna Federal Reserve notes – now that’s real counterfeiting!When this stage is reached, the use of BitCoins will be depicted by law enforcement agencies and the mass media as money laundering and the support of terrorism. So it could actually get quite dangerous to be caught having or using BitCoins. Fortunately, the tools exist today that make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for such agencies to make a case against the individual users or dealers of BitCoins – or even to discover who they are.
    • A more insidious attack will come from our government’s “Cyber-security” forces that are already being marshaled to go after any online activity deemed a threat to the status quo. They will, no doubt, invent computer viruses, Trojan viruses, and various other forms of “malware” that will search out, report, and destroy BitCoins wherever they are stored – unless we take certain precautions against that eventuality.Fortunately, the precautions are available now – so it behooves us to implement them as soon as we acquire any BitCoins, because the government won’t announce the mounting of such cyber-weapons – they’ll just start using them as they become available.
    • And finally, if the patterns observed in previous police states are followed, the mere discussion of BitCoins will be prohibited – let alone their advocacy. Free speech be damned – articles such as this one will be cited as evidence of treason, terrorism, sedition, and/or conspiracy. The First Amendment is dead – long live the First Amendment.

Who is Morpheus

Wow, what a long strange Trip it’s been!  Many of my friends know me as Morpheus. You know “The Bringer of the Dream“.  I use this handle, tongue in cheek, as a way to explain the co-incidences of my experience, living in this kind of science fiction movie. When you find yourself in a movie you have to get a stage name, So Morpheus it is!

After the events of 9/11 i came to the realization that the government is a criminal organization, and therefore I had to quit feeding it. I have chosen to live outside the Matrix, so I have to hustle for my daily bread.  The more I move into the future the more I am moving to a Agorist Lifestyle.  I like to work and provide value to those I encounter.  I have sold cars, home improvement, advertising, home security, windshields, solar power.  Now I mostly sell Bitcoin. The main reasons being I don’t need a license, bank or permit to do it.  All I need is a phone and that’s it.  Since February 2014 I haven’t had a job and I live on what I make selling Bitcoin.  I like being semi-retired. No one tells me what to do how to do it when and where to do it, what clothes I can where and when I can use the bathroom!  I’m not rich however being able to do what I want to do when I want to do it has incredibly high value for me.

On 2001/09/11, I was running a direct mail company called “The Direct Hit” with my x-wife Keele.   In the year 2000, just outta the chute the company did Frn$300,000. Month before 9/11 we did a quarter million bucks in sales and the month before that over a quarter million as well.  We had 9 people banging on the phones and we were rocking, it was crazy.  Here’s where I thought the x-con makes it big.  He does, just “Not Today!” as Buzz Lightyear would say. Well the universe had other plans for me.  9/11 hit and that stopped us cold.  Then we had the Anthrax in the mail.  September all the contracts we had called and canceled.  Did 5 Grand in September.  I was looking like I was cold cocked in the face.

After all the sales and support people left or we let them go, Keele got this DVD called “911: In Plane Site” by Dave vonKliest It was the first video I saw on the inconsistencies of 9/11.   I spent the next few months on the computer researching it all I became aware my own government at least covered up the facts behind 9/11 and quite possibly manufactured the incident for the excuse to go to war.  That was our oil under their sand and by golly they were gonna get it! As I was to learn soon, this is the nature of Hierarchies.

I couldn’t get myself figure out what was the next best direction to go.  Keele was pregnant with my son.  We were having house built in Anthem, Arizona.  We were bleeding money.  We moved the business to working in our dream house, it just wasn’t the same.  I went into a tailspin.  Keele got an offer to work in Florida of a competitor.  We sold the house, filed bankruptcy and the IRS had my ass in a sling.

As a result of going to Florida, I met Robert (Bob) Podolsky at a Libertarian meeting near West Palm Beach.   I knew right away Bob had some of the answers I was looking for.   Bob started talking about Creativity and Ethics and how they were linked.   He shared with me that hierarchies create the problems so they can justify their existence.  Being sort of a Libertarian, even though I have the privilege of never voting, I knew that the Government was bad, almost Evil.  The Federal Reserve was Evil, and being a recovering Roman Catholic, I knew Organized Religion was a snow job.

Bob let me know these entities were not separate, they were just parts of the same Organization, a cartel really.  To be more precise they are parasites operating as part of the Power Brokerage Cartel we call as the B.O.R.G.  The B.O.R.G. is an acronym coined by Bob, which stands for Banks and Big Business, Organized Religion, and Government.  These are the institutions that most people think of to SOLVE problems, Actually they create the problems first and then they Manage these created problems, for a small fee of course!  Many of the concepts Bob was explaining to me made more sense than anything else I had ever heard, especially since Bob had a solution to the Hierarchical problems

The trouble with these BORG’s  created problems is they have to continue to grow, and the small fee gets larger.  When some upstart decides they do not like being part of a social contract they have never volunteered into and can never get out of, the government attack them..  They get tired of being a SLAVE, those people who get the B.O.R.G. mad at them, generally will have their lives destroyed, end up in prison, or Dead.   Remember the American President who attempted to get out of Vietnam and go around the Federal reserve and print silver certificates, his initials were JFK.  Those that hold power when, who when they cross the B.O.R.G. will have war waged on them or be cut off (embargoed) for not participating in their game.

After understanding what the source of ALL the problems in the world were caused by this hierarchical group of Psychopaths known as the BORG, Bob also let me know that there is actually a solution to the BIG PROBLEM. To correct this imbalance, individuals are needed to create competing, non hierarchical groups know as Octologues, which is a group that work unanimously to direct energy in any ethical way they see what they fit.  Its simple really: in an octologue members must agree or the group can not make a decision.  The simple beauty here is the system actually encourages feedback.  In a typical hierarchical construct that most of us live in it boils down to this: If we wanted your opinion we would be giving it to you.  The surveys are simply there to understand how well the information is being accepted and how much more marketing needs to be done for whatever threshold is needed for WHATEVER they are selling.   These Pyramid  structures are created specifically to avoid, eliminate and destroy any feedback and  ere as the non hierarchical Octologue feedback is fostered and encouraged.

From here, it is part of my Destiny to bring Titania to the world.  A Gaiawyrd.  I have every reason to believe it is the solution to humanity’s BIG PROBLEM.  Unless it is implemented, NOW, the great science experiment known as the Human race will end. Period!
