What is Extremism?

The most radical extremist is the one whose personal understanding of self is incompatible with the mystic expectation held by the sum of thoughtless, unquestioning, and uninspired persons who comprise society. The most radical extremist is he who has developed an understanding far too complex and enigmatic to even momentarily halt the inertia of the ever-developing and familiar establishment of the institutional status quo. To challenge the status quo is to question the progress of mankind. To challenge the absurd momentum of illogical opinion is to make you a person, and no person shall trump the will of society. 

No person shall rule over society unless that person is to further the development of society and its agendas. Somehow the extremist is the one who remembers that the smallest unit of society is the individual, and that without the preservation of that individual, "social progress" is moot and self-defeating. The very mention of extremism or radicalism isolates those persons whom "society" identifies that way. The irony herein is nearly comedic but for the real and systemic consequences it causes. In cases in which systemic and institutional violence, coercion, and theft become the status quo, extremism is not only desirable but necessary to combat the more extreme evils of tyranny. 

Extremism sounds frightening because most persons tend to fail to realize the true extent of global diversity. Each and every person is extremely different, but we are so often molded and conditioned to think, speak, and act according to the socially-engineered expectation that we have become actors on this terrestrial stage of life. We know not who we are, but what is expected of us. Thus, we are normal. Thus, the one who steps outside of the snow globe to peer into the universe is the outcast. He is the slave to those who have already accepted the course. They are the slaves of those who have assumed power over them, and the self-defeating, unescapable cycle continues.

Goldmoney: Real Money Purposed for the Future

The institution of money entered the minds of sophisticated traders several millennia ago, when instead of bartering with limited numbers of people within the cumbersome double coincidence of wants, large-scale economies developed from the reach and transparency of commodity money which was scarce, durable, fungible, transportable, divisible, recognizable, and usable in and of itself. 

While we may appear to have transcended those primitive times and those so-called barbarous relics, the truth is that we have merely mutilated the concept of money by clandestinely replacing it with its more manipulable and abstract representative, the proverbial coat check without the coat. 

This is but the device of a large-scale social experiment run in real time, and we are its unwitting and unconsenting subjects who’ve largely never heard of the Federal Reserve’s dual mandate, much less its missions of “maximum employment” and 2-percent annual inflation.

Yet there is hope after all.

Finally, after deca…

The Kaepernick Craze: Exposing the Nation's Fools One Conversation at a Time

The Kaeparnick craze and other viral movements haven't merely pressured people into becoming simpler caricatures of their prior selves, but they have manifestly exposed people for how foolish and uninformed they've been all along. 



In his final year in the NFL, Kaepernick ranked 17th in passer rating and 34th the year before that. 

He played through an entire season in only two of his six years in the league, and his best full-season performance ranks far outside of the NFL's top-250 single-season passing performances in the league's history. 

For reference, the oft-criticized Tony Romo posted a career passer rating of 97.1, as compared to Kaepernick's 88.9. 

Romo's passer rating dipped below 90 for only one season of the eleven seasons he played, whereas Kaepernick failed to eclipse the 90 mark on three of his six seasons, a full 50 percent of his time in the NFL. 

In fact, Kaepernick accomplished this feat only once if we are to discard those other two seasons in …

Bitcoin: Are You Feeling Lucky?

The popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin, has tumbled greater than 50 percent since its all-time high set just a month ago near $20,000. 

Since then, it has traded as low as $9,000 before rebounding modestly back over the $10,000 mark. 
The short story of bitcoin (XBT) is powerfully illustrated by its graduation from its initial use case as an easy, inexpensive medium of exchange to an erratic and highly speculative risk asset which scarcely resembles anything more. 
And despite the chance that it regains steam, it is steeped equivalently in bubble territory at $9k as it is at $20k or even $100 or $100k. 
Plainly, it is a bubble at nearly any price. 
The only difference is the anchoring effect which seduces the investor into interpreting the drop as a buying opportunity. 
So while the fundamentals and the use case haven't dramatically changed since the decline, the greedy investor assumes that the price has dropped because of reasons unrelated to its future viability. 
This is wishful thinkin…
