New York Times bestselling author of And Justice For All, and Guinness World Record Holder for largest book signing ever, Orrin Woodward, just released a blog post on the Cobden Centre’s Andy Duncan reviewing Jorg Guido Hulsmann’s book The Ethics of Money Production.
In Woodward’s opinion, the number one battle for freedom begins with checking the Five Laws of Decline (FLD) destruction of the monetary system by the State elites.
“What is the point in checking government through representative government, separation of powers, term limits if the government can have access to practically unlimited funds?”, he asked.
Orrin Woodward’s book And Justice For All spells out how the elites plunder the production of society. Since Adam Smith and Jean Baptiste Say, economists have recognized the 3 factors of all production – labor, land, and capital. The elites have plundered all three factors of production.
“The central planning of the financial system is inconceivable, illogical, and inconsistent since its underlying presuppositions run counter to our alleged free market system,” Woodward said.
Thomas Jefferson, in 1816, from his Monticello estate, was calling the attention of Colonel Charles Yancey, on “…deluded citizens… clamoring for more banks, more banks… We are under the bank bubble …, and as every nation is liable to be, under whatever bubble, design, or delusion may puff up in moments when off their guard.”
Jefferson added in this letter his famously known quote: ” If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
“The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves ; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.” (Thomas Jefferson letter to Colonel Charles Yancey).
I am glad to be part of the Life Leadership Compensated Community led by Orrin Woodward who has authored and co-authored multiple books and sold millions of them in the quest to lead people to the truth.
One of my hero, as I told a group I was speaking to last week-end, in Maryland, is Dutty Francois (Bookman). He started with book reading, and led the haitian slaves rebellion against their masters in 1791 which culminated to Independence in 1804. Yes, Haitians were free, but remained largely ignorant with a mass of slaves who did not know how to read.
Fortunately, we can invest the time to read and understand today. And, LIFE Leadership intends to play its part in educating society in the 8F’s of life to play its part in the restoration of liberty.
Below is a portion of Andy Duncan’s review.
The book is divided into three beautifully-written main parts:
- The Natural Production of Money
- Monetary Order and Monetary Systems
These three parts cover everything you might think of, from the invention of metallic money all the way through to the end of Bretton-Woods and then the later creation of the Euro. However, the heart of the book is a sequence of four chapters — in the second part of the book on Inflation —with two of these chapter titles, alas, unfortunately insisting on the use of American spellings and the appalling employment of the letter ‘zed’; the chapter content, however, is still very good, even if has fallen under the unwelcome control of an American spell-checker:
- Legalized Falsifications
- Legal Monopolies
- Legal-Tender Laws
- Legalized Suspensions of Payments
When you are the elite organisation calling yourself ‘The State’, you have a monopoly on law in a particular territory; it is with this power that you can subvert and distort the natural order of private property, thus leading to the impoverishment and helotry of everyone else within that territory, under your rule, even leading to the ridiculous notion that any debt this elite runs up — to maintain their position of privilege — is somehow ‘owed’ by the subjugated population, despite no-one ever asking their opinion about whether this debt should have been taken on by the elite and despite all the benefits of the spending of that debt going directly into the grasping hands of that same privileged elite.
The whole problem with money is the state’s imposition of legal privileges for bankers, given to bankers in return for the promise that they will always soak up the debts of politicians, to enable politicians to enslave their populations over time in a Procrustean bed of warfare and welfare, to the ultimate benefit of the politicians and their friends, and to the detriment of everyone else.
These chapters make clear how that mechanism of monetary enslavement operates, and therefore how we can break that mechanism and become free again from the appalling bondage of government bonds. It is with the removal of these legal privileges and a restoration of the natural order of private property rights that we will be able to put the wheels back on the cart, get moving again, and put the politicians back in their place,
