by Anthony Wile, The Daily Bell:
The Daily Bell is pleased to present this exlusive interview with Jeff Berwick (left).
Introduction: Mr. Berwick is an anarchist, libertarian and freedom fighter against mankind’s two biggest enemies, the state and the central banks. Jeff is chief editor of The Dollar Vigilante, an anarcho-capitalist, Austrian economics based newsletter focused on surviving The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) and CEO of TDV Media and Services, which provides internationalization information and solutions for yourself and your wealth. He is also host of Anarchast, an anarchist video podcast, and is a contributing editor at many of the world’s largest financial and precious metals related websites. In 1994, Jeff Berwick founded Canada’s largest financial website, Stockhouse.com.
Daily Bell: Great to interview you again, Jeff. When we talked with you this past October 2011, the world was a crazy place but it seems to be getting crazier. As an experienced observer of the financial scene, can you give us your take on the biggest problem the Western world is currently facing? Is it economics? Militarism? Growing authoritarianism? Or all three?
Jeff Berwick: Where to begin? When I first began discussing The Dollar Vigilante in 2008 I remember thinking to myself, “How will I find enough stuff to write about?” Now, in 2012, I can’t possibly even comment on all the events happening daily. As one example of the escalation of what I see as the ongoing symptoms of The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI), since we last spoke less than a year ago Barack Obomber has declared the Bill of Rights null and void. With his signing of the National Defense Authorization Act on New Year’s Eve, he’s also declared that he can kill any American, or anyone in the world, just by adding them to his kill list.
