Government Just Revoked Our Right To Know What Regulations They Are About To Pass.

Biden has eliminated a 2019 Executive Order 13891 that would “take public input into account when appropriate in formulating guidance documents, and make guidance documents readily available to the public.” Right, government agencies are supposed to treat their regulations as if they are regulations, and tell people what they’re obligated to do.

Why SPACS Are A Bubble That’s About To Burst.

The most obvious sign is the frenzied growth. Amid the global stock market volatility, last year’s $83 billion haul by SPACs was six times the amount raised in 2019 and nearly equaled the figure mustered by IPOs. Even David Solomon, chief executive of major SPACs underwriter Goldman Sachs, warned in January 2021 that the boom is not “sustainable in the medium term.”

America’s Governing Elite Wants To Govern Just Like China’s.

Beyond simply serving China’s imperial needs, the US oligarchy is working to build an America that looks more like China. The contours of their system are already clear: an enlightened elite broadcasts official progressive facts, beliefs, and values that none may question.

Fighting Poverty With Entrepreneurship.

By investing in EZones with public funding, private investment, grant funds, and tax credits, economically challenged communities can generate the revenue and jobs needed to reduce local poverty in a sustainable way (without the need for long-term government funding).

A Complex World Needs Simple Rules.

Our current bias towards trying to make a government rule for every single issue that arises in society is not only ignorant of the very institutions of freedom that make our society prosper, but it also threatens to continue a vicious cycle that fuels an ever-encroaching state.
