Peeling Back the Layers of Political Oppression One Layer at a Time

Money changes everything

There are regions in Germany who are using commonly-accepted alternative currencies. The first step towards independence is independent means of exchange. After that, the power to (not to) tax. One step at a time, small is beautiful. The U.S.A. (China, Russia, others) are way too big too and could be decentralized as well. Eg the less large the central government is the more accountable it is to the people, and, plus there is less rent-seeking and "concentrated benefits and diffuse costs" saps on the people who don't really know where all their tax money is going and why. And most of it goes towards people who live better than they do. Either that and/or creating war and fear in the name of those they are robbing anyway.
