Finally! A newsletter focused on agorism and counter-economics. The technology underlying agorism and the community surrounding it are growing so fast, it’s tough to keep track of it all. I’m looking forward to finding new topics/ideas/technologies and people on these pages.
I am very impressed. That isn’t easy to do. We live in a world where, in many ways, content is produced in such quantity to get someone to pay for it requires something special. I think Vin and his team have nailed it in that regard. It will give subscribers an edge in changing markets.
We tried for too long to change things that were completely out of our control instead of focusing ONLY on the things we can influence.
The reality is:
YOU are probably not going to bring down the national debt, or stop social security and medicaid from going insolvent, or prevent the growth of the police state or stop any of the known (and unknown) illegal, immoral wars.
Political parasites in Washington aren't listening to you.
They certainly weren't listening to us.
And the more we focused on the stuff we couldn't change, the more our bank accounts and assets dwindled, the less effective we became in bringing about liberty, and the darker our futures grew.
We realized resistance was futile...
If we were trying to change the system politically.
So instead of fighting the State on their terms, playing their game...
We decided to fight economically.
To focus on changing all the things in our control: our actions, investments, networks, businesses, skills, and communities.
That’s how we found true freedom in an unfree world.
We’ve been arrested. We’ve lost money. We’ve missed opportunities.
We've figured out how to avoid the regulators.
How to minimize taxes.
How to profit from simple investments.
How to predict and capitalize on market trends.
How to operate urban gardens and 3D printers.
How to start, run, grow, and sell successful businesses.
And best of all...
How to enrich ourselves using strategies that undermine the State's power, that gradually moves the culture toward more liberty instead of less, and puts you back in control over your own life, while influencing millions of others through your actions.
The Counter Markets Newsletter is the hard-won result of experimenting, failing, and learning how to live free even in the midst of the largest police, welfare, and warfare State in history.
And now we want to give it to you...
And the motivation and instruction for building a free world (and a liberated life) through Agorist, counter-economic action.
We’re self-made libertarian entrepreneurs who live and breathe agorism.
We’ve built, bootstrapped, and grown multiple online and offline businesses for many years ranging from alternative media and advertising to wealth management, cryptocurrency solutions, and self-sufficiency.
And we're diehard practitioners of agorism.
Agorism was coined in the ‘70s by radical libertarian theorist Samuel Edward Konkin III, also known as SEK3:
“The goal of agorism is the agora. The society of the open marketplace as near to untainted by theft, assault, and fraud as can be humanly attained is as close to a free society as can be achieved. And a free society is the only one in which each and every one of us can satisfy his or her subjective values without crushing others’ values by violence and coercion”.
Agorism is the peaceful economic exchange of goods and services outside of the State’s control.
This is often called “counter-economics.”
It's when enterprising individuals peacefully and voluntarily buy and sell products and services in the black and "grey" markets - ignoring the State’s laws, regulations, and restrictions on commerce.
Basically, you’re buying and selling what you want, how you want, with whomever you want, any time you want WITHOUT government approval.
It's what we've been doing for years.
Here's the short list of contributors behind the Counter Markets Newsletter:

We're going to show you step-by-step HOW to put agorism into action to take control of your life, your future, and your liberty.
It's Divided Into 5 main sections:
Trends & Forecasting
Wealth Protection & Growth
Bitcoin & Silver Reports
Think of us as your own personal “wealth weathermen” to get in front of important trends.
Every day we analyze global and local trends to find the hidden opportunities for big gains most people like you (and many pro investors) won’t notice.
You’ll get a backseat pass to the driving forces behind emerging trends so you can get in on the action before anyone else.
And you’ll receive privileged information about the impacts of these trends and the opportunities that exist for you.
You’ve probably heard it before, but you need to hear it again…
Today, right now, is the best time to start your own business and grow wealth (inside or outside) the system.
In every issue of Counter Markets, you’ll get tried-and-true business strategies from successful libertarian entrepreneurs.
You’ll discover how to make money and grow your wealth without the IRS stealing 40% of it (or more) each year.
You’ll understand how to trade with alternative currencies such as Bitcoin or gold.
And you’ll learn techniques and strategies for operating a business in the black or grey markets, outside the scope of government oversight or intrusion.
If there's a set of skills you need more than any other (especially when the government is $22 trillion in debt) it's knowing how to survive and thrive on your own without asking for permission, without getting a license, and without getting caught.
That’s why we deliver DIY guides on everything from 3D printers to solar power so you know how to keep your family warm, put food on the table, and create the things you need to live comfortably while staying as off-grid as possible.
But more than self-sufficient living...
You’ll learn about technologies and platforms that are decentralizing both the government’s and the corporatists’ control over our lives. And we’ll show you how to use these tools to live free and prosper.
The government steals your money any way it can.
We show you how to invest your fiat USD into commodities, properties, cryptocurrencies, and more to safeguard your wealth from the greedy hands of politicians.
And then we show you how to leverage these assets to grow your wealth and financial security long term.
We’ll also walk you through systems and processes you can use to circumvent traditional banking or investment options in order to get higher returns without letting the banksters profit from your activity.
If you want to profit from Bitcoin, you need to know when to buy and sell it.
Every month, we dive into the latest Bitcoin activity, showing you when it dipped and rose in price and the activity surrounding these events.
We’ll give you insight into the mind of a Bitcoin trader and forecast future activity so you’ll be prepared to “strike” at the right moments.
But we go beyond cryptocurrency and monitor the second-best reserve for wealth next to gold...
We analyze current monetary policy, global market activity, and economies in key countries to give you insights into how the US dollar and stock market is performing so you know what’s driving the price of silver up or down.
We also show you how well silver has been trading, recap its latest activity, and forecast what’s coming in the future so you know when and how to invest your wealth in this precious metal as a proven safe-haven from recessions, depressions, and collapses.
Some of our insights are so important and powerful, even mainstream magazines like Forbes have to cover what we report:
This slim ebook puts into plain language how embracing the concept of self ownership provides a path to a better life, a more peaceful society, and the abolition of the State.
Inside Self Ownership you'll discover:
Plus much, much more...

To stop thinking about liberty...and start practicing it.
To stop letting the State dictate your life...and live on your own terms.
To stop reading about great freedom pioneers of the past...and be one.
Because the State doesn’t care about what you know, what you read, what you watch, or what you think.
It cares about what you DO.
And when you buy, sell, trade, and BUILD your own wealth and liberty outside of the State's control, you reclaim your sovereignty.
Are you ready to not only think free, but live free?
Because if not, that's fine.
You can stay trapped in playing politics and waiting to get scraps from the bureaucrats table.
You can put your money into Wall Street and let the cronyists steal it all over again.
You can wait for your social security check (that will be insolvent by 2034).
And you can remain a tax slave.
You can choose to participate in CREATING freedom in real-time, laying the foundation for a free society that your kids and their kids can enjoy all while securing your wealth and fighting the State through counter-economics.
Now is your chance to choose who you're going to be and what you're going to do for yourself, your family, and for the future of human liberty...
