Episode-2663- Developing Your Personal Counter Economics Game Plan

The Survival Podcast show

Summary: Two guys I really like (Vin Armani and Pete Quinones) have been trading some thoughts on counter economics recently.  Pete said something like, “Any strategy to defeat the expanding technocracy that does not include counter-economics should be rethought, or abandoned.” Which Vin responded to with, “A successful countereconomics strategy won’t defeat the expanding technocracy, but it will enable individuals to avoid the worst of its effects.” My response to Vin was, “Bingo! Agorism is not going to save the world, it is innate to the human condition. It is something you do, not something you create as a system. It already exists, everywhere all the time, you are part of it consciously or unconsciously. The choice is the key!” Pete also made the same comment on Facebook and it opened some good discussion there as well.  As I thought about today’s show I decided this was a great practical topic, if you come at it from a practical stand point. Join Me Today to Discuss… Let’s start with the evolution of an anarchist/libertarian/agorist/voluntarist What exactly is “counter economics” – short version all gray and black markets are counter economic markets The reality is counter economics are actually created by governments, they are an attempt to restore natural economics However, counter economics are still not 100% natural as they feed off of government stupidity Examples of counter economics at the home/individual level Anything you sell or trade and don’t pay tax on really Home made hooch (shine, mead, etc) Reloading ammo for “friends” Selling farmstead/homestead produce Selling prepared foods Selling livestock outside the system There are millions of examples Why this approach is powerful The tale of two neighbors and one agorist It is all based on your actions You can always win if you are a good designer The more government does the more profitable it becomes People will participate while swearing they disagree with the principle In the 80s we just called it “working under the table”, etc, everyone thought it was a great idea In the end you do what makes sense for you, when it makes sense for you, not because “I’m an agorist” This is the philosophy of America until the early 1900s and it persisted in decline even after that Why you may really need this philosophy soon   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Heart of Gold on SongFacts.com Heart of Gold – Neil Young   Sponsors of the Day Ready Made Resources Knife Kits   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
