Aaron Day: “This Is The Hill To Die On”

If CBDC’s are broadly implemented, it’s over. There will be no more privacy, no more freedom, and our lives will be controlled by unseen people and AI programs nudging us toward thinking, saying and buying only the “right things.”

Last year, Evie and I were invited to a private lunch with RFK Jr (thank you, Jeff!).  Of course, we accepted.  Given the chance to ask a question, I posed this one; “If you had to skinny your candidacy down to a single issue, what would that be?”

Without missing a beat RFK Jr said “Central Bank Digital Currencies!” or CBDC’s.

He then went on with a deep background about the importance of free markets, free market capitalism (as distinct from the fascism we’re currently living under, defined as the merger of corporations and state through regulatory capture and barriers), and concluded with the observation that once we have programmable currencies we’ll have lost all of our freedom.

With that loss of freedom would be loss of economic dynamism, as is typical of all authoritarian states.

And there’s nothing more authoritarian than a programmable currency.

I recently had the great honor of interviewing Aaron Day at the 2024 PorcFest gathering in New Hampshire.  Which explains the t-shirts and on-the-fly recordings done with my cell phones.

Aaron has made fighting the arrival of CBDCs his “hill to die on” because he’s a man of deep integrity who understand that if our generation fails to fight CBDC’s off we will be leaving a degraded and impoverished economic landscape to our children.

Great news!  Aaron Day has eagerly agreed to be a seminar presenter at our upcoming Peak Prosperity Summit, which is stacking up to be the “can’t miss” event of 2024.  There’s limited space so if you are on the fence, or simply haven’t yet gotten around to securing your tickets, you should do so.  We’re expecting a sell-out crowd this year and early ticket sales are on track.

In part II for my subscribers, I go into the ways in which we can individually protect ourselves from this menace.
