The Counter-Economics of COVID




In March 2020 - some say earlier, but by March 2020 at latest - the banking had sector collapsed.

In response, coronavirus was manufactured as a scapegoat to justify the liquidity injection necessary to keep the Federal Reserve’s ponzi scheme alive. The State’s narrative would henceforth be: ‘Since all businesses were shut down, an unprecedented amount of money must be printed and distributed to the public.’ Milton Friedman’s helicopter money had come to fruition.




But like a junkie chasing his initial high, the Fed had become immune to the effects of monetary stimulus. Each injection requiring a stronger, more potent dose of cheap & easy money. Less than two years later, and the effects of that stimulus have now waned & the banksters are poised to pull off another heist.

As the business cycle continues to ebb and flow until the day of final reckoning, the State can be expected to behave in an increasingly erratic fashion. Like a cornered cat, or a fish out of water, the State knows it’s in trouble and will do anything to survive. The more desperate the political class becomes, the more aspects of daily life they’ll attempt to control.

COVID-19 is merely a useful tool in this regard.

Trade and commerce have been among the first institutions to go. The masks that were once required for participation in civic life have given way to mysterious injections provided by old friends of Jeffrey Epstein & Nancy Pelosi’s drinking buddies.


Agorists have responded in kind.

Businesses that have forgone mask & vaccine requirements have leached market share from those that enforce them. I personally can attest to attending one very busy speakeasy in Manhattan’s Chinatown prior to escaping Bill DeBlasio’s tax plantation for the warm embrace of the Sunshine State.

Numerous businesses in lockdown states & countries that have defiantly stayed open were surprised to see their fines covered by voluntary fundraisers and their reputations soar among the plebs - sometimes elevating local businesses to national fame, as was the case with Atillis gym in dystopian New Jersey. Here again, we see the black market functioning.

When the fascist mask requirements failed to stop voluntary trade and commerce, the State outright prohibited it. All “non-essential” businesses (whatever the hell that means) were ordered to close, effectively forcing millions into poverty, foreclosure, and/or bankruptcy. The agorists were again prepared to deliver relief.

For years, ancaps have taken issue with the agorist characterization of salary work as wage-slavery. The scamdemic changed this. The case for entrepreneurship is now stronger than ever. Put simply, the State can’t use your job as leverage if you work for yourself.




But even for those unable, unwilling or just not ready to quit their jobs & embrace entrepreneurship, agorists have a solution nonetheless. Black market vaxx cards. We all know someone who has one & where to get one. This is because Agorists have made them readily available. Why? Because as the great Jeffrey Tucker puts it, the market loves you.

Let’s pause to appreciate the finer details of this. To whom did the public turn when Dementia-Joe revealed his scheme to force injections on the working class? The GOP? The Free State Project? Did they turn to the Libertarian Party or Nick Sarwak for help? The Mises Caucus?

Nope.

Everyone instinctually turned to the black market, knowing full well that counter-economists would be there for them, providing the forged government papers necessary to carry on with their normal lives.

And we’ll continue to be here for you. Every step of the way, as the State enters the final stages of collapse.

In Defense of Left Libertarianism

Marx was right, but Marxism is stupid. Let me explain… Marx’s fundamental critique that the working class is being exploited by the upper class is true. This is so inherently obvious in the modern political climate that I find it bewildering the notion even needs defending. In fact, today, the working class has been so thoroughly exploited that they can now be more accurately termed the working poor . Go to Manhattan, the neoliberal shithole from whence I came - and try to find a worker who both lives & resides there. You can’t. There aren’t any. The elites have successfully used a combination of high taxes & a denial of civil liberties to expel the working class from their homes. Trust me, I am among the expelled. The anarcho-capitalist habit of turning a blind eye to class theory is a grave mistake, as it sweeps real concerns under the rug. In doing so they dismiss the plight of an enormous contingent of the public - labor. No, we agorists aren’t seeking an abandonment of met

Global Warming & Economics

Libertarians who deny the existence of global warming run the risk of making us all look like a bunch of illiterate fools. Much like economics, being ignorant of planetology or climate science isn't a crime, but having a "loud and vociferous" opinion on the subject while remaining in a state of ignorance can be a dangerous thing. And frankly, the science behind climate change is elementary. Sunlight enters our atmosphere and warms our planet. Earth then gives off that heat in the form of infrared radiation (this is the same principle behind those cool goggles our collapsitarian friends have). However, and this is a crucial point - the CO₂ molecules in our atmosphere do not allow IR to easily escape back into space. This is known as the greenhouse effect. As the temperature of the planet increases, polar ice caps melt and eventually surface water will begin to evaporate. Since H₂0 also prevents IR from escaping our atmosphere, the additional water vapor only compound

In Defense of Left Libertarianism, Part II

The early anarchists - the first anarchists, were undeniably leftists. In fact, the Father of Anarchy , William Godwin, sought the abolition of the state only insofar as it served as a means of achieving his true end, the elimination of private property. Godwin’s immediate ideological successors largely agreed. Pierre Joseph-Proudhon, Josiah Warren, Kropotkin, Tolstoy, Henry David Thoreau & Ben Tucker - all rejected the idea of private property to a greater or lesser extent. Under the influence of these thinkers, several attempts at more "equitable" communal living were made; all of which now litter the dustbin of history. Some, like the New Harmony colony, Brook Farm, the Oneida colony, or the Amana colonies, were lucky & either closed or converted to market-friendly models. Other communes like Jamestown, tell a much darker tale. But how much blame can we assign to these early anarchists for their economic shortcomings? If it’s true contemporary anarchists can see f
