Oy vey - a libertopian paradise
Doug Casey and Jeff Berwick have a little libertopian hideaway in Argentina called Galt's Gulch.
Jeff Berwick btw has a blog called The Dollar Vigilante. It seems he's mostly concerned about the coming Socialist One-World Government. He seems to enjoy writing things that make Karl Denninger look like a centrist.
Berwick is one of the "letter-writers" appearing at this year's PDAC. Here's his description from that webpage:
"Jeff Berwick is an anarcho-capitalist freedom fighter and Chief Editor of the libertarian, Austrian economics grounded newsletter, The Dollar Vigilante. The Dollar Vigilante focuses on strategies, investments and expatriation opportunities to survive and prosper during and after the US dollar collapse."
Uh... "anarcho-capitalist freedom-fighter"? As in, what, exactly? Writing a blog about running away to Argentina so he doesn't have to pay US taxes? Or calling the most right-wing pro-rich pro-business country in the world "socialist"? Wow... well, it doesn't exactly measure up to bombing the Alfred P. Murrah building, but maybe the libertopians aren't that kind of "freedom-fighter".
And it is neat that one way to survive the US dollar collapse is... wait for it!... to move to Argentina. With a lot of gold coins. Specifically, to a plot of land that you've bought from Doug Casey.
God, I wasn't thinking about going to PDAC this year, and last year's "letter writer presentations" day was thoroughly boring (except, if I recall, Ian McAvity); but I might go this year after all, just to see this guy talk. I enjoy anything that makes people squirm in their seats.
But one thing: YOU ARE NOT AN ANARCHIST. FUCK OFF.
