how To Live Free and prosper outside of the control of tyrants (no matter What They do or how bad things get)

We can't control outbreaks or pseudo-outbreaks.

We can't control state mandates or the actions of petty tyrants and psychopaths. 

We can't control the economy. 

We can't control banks. 

We can't control other people. 

And we can't control what the ruling elite are going to do.

These psychopaths will push forward the Greater Reset, the 4th Industrial Revolution, the New World Order (whatever you want to call it) no matter what you do or how you feel about it.


We CAN control our knowledge, skills, and actions to overcome anything that these non-controllable events will throw our way.

We CAN escape being enslaved in systems of government and corporate control. 

Because what THEY don't want you to know is...

You have more POWER and CONTROL over your own life than you can imagine.

And you have more opportunities, technologies, and methods to live freer and more prosperously than you ever thought possible right now no matter how totalitarian society becomes.

Improvise, adapt, and overcome. 

That's the unofficial slogan of the Marines but it might as well be the official slogan for "free marketeers."

A "free marketeer" is a person who's in constant motion to live free using all the means within their control.

We've created a monthly newsletter for the free marketeer to deliver the most powerful and ACTIONABLE strategies, tactics, and resources to escape government and corporate systems of control, grow and protect your wealth, and live a life of unstoppable liberty.

Surviving tyranny is our first objective.

But that's just a means to reach our second objective:

Living a happy and free life on our own terms. Building families, communities, and even societies of liberty, independence, and self-government.

We want to be free. But we also want to live well. 

We'll show you how to accomplish both by taking direct action immediately without waiting for anyone to save you. This is the way to save yourself.  

This newsletter is written to be fresh and up-to-date with what's happening RIGHT NOW in the world and how to understand it, respond to it, and THRIVE in spite of it.

You can apply this knowledge TODAY to take back more power into your own life and reduce the power any State or corporation tries to exercise over you WITHOUT voting, protesting, or asking for permission.

Best of all...

We give you HUNDREDS of options for living free in whatever way YOU choose. 


The Counter Markets Newsletter

James Corbett

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.


The Counter Markets Newsletter is the ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION for improving personal independence. I've used it to cut down on my day job and work in the counter economy.

Bitcoin and Silver Reports

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.

You'll also discover how to take full advantage of this liberating technology outside of mere profit - how to use it for freedom and prosperity in other areas of your life.

But we go beyond cryptocurrency and monitor the second-best wealth reserve next to gold and Bitcoin...


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.

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 Armani and his team have nailed it in that regard. It will give subscribers an edge in changing markets.

Inside Self Ownership you'll discover:

  • What "ownership" truly means and how you come to own yourself (and therefore, come to own things outside of yourself).
  • What property is and what it isn't. 
  • How violence is used to settle territory (property) claims throughout nature.
  • How immorality is defined as aggressing against claimed property. 
  • How the secret to reducing human violence rests in peaceful ways to protect property and better ways to deal with property disputes (blockchain).  

Plus much, much more...
