by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
When we started The Dollar Vigilante in 2010, it was a very different world.
The word “libertarianism” was just becoming known for the first time due to the efforts of a guy named Ron Paul and his rEVOLution. Anarcho-capitalism was still essentially unknown by most. We believed that taxation was theft but trying to find more than a few dozen other people who felt the same was not happening. Many people still hadn’t woken up to 9/11 being an inside job.
And, not even we knew about bitcoin back then… only hearing about it in 2011 when it was at $3 and immediately jumping on the bandwagon as perhaps its loudest promoter.
So, what a nice surprise it is to see how quickly things are changing.
