This is an interesting, though anti-liberty, this article about the secessionist movements in Europe.
I think that the EU will eventually break up. I have been thinking this since at least 2009. I think that the European central bank will continue to inflate to the very end to try to keep the system together but it will still break up in the end whether the it is from secessionist movements or economic reality.
I think there will also eventually be a push from the grass roots level in many of the American States to break away as well if the Federal Reserve does not let off the monetary gas and leads the U.S. into a hyper inflation scenario.
Here is the list of things people should know about the Fed from buisness insider.
#1 The Federal Reserve System Is A Privately Owned Banking Cartel
#2 The Federal Reserve System Is A Perpetual Debt Machine
#3 The Federal Reserve Has Destroyed More Than 96% Of The Value Of The U.S. Dollar
#4 The Federal Reserve Can Bail Out Whoever It Wants To With No Accountability
#5 The Federal Reserve Is Paying Banks Not To Lend Money
#6 The Federal Reserve Creates Artificial Economic Bubbles That Are Extremely Damaging
#7 The Federal Reserve System Is Dominated By The Big Wall Street Banks
#8 It Is Not An Accident That We Saw The Personal Income Tax And The Federal Reserve System Both Come Into Existence In 1913
#9 The Current Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, Has A Nightmarish Track Record Of Incompetence
#10 The Federal Reserve Has Become Way Too Powerful
I guess the liberty movement is continuing to split over Rand Paul’s recent behavior. He recently refused to comment on the Bilderberg group. In addition, Jack Hunter went out of his way to explain that such discussion should be off limits because it hurts the movement. While not the top of my list of concerns (the Federal Reserve System is more than enough), it should not be outside the realm of polite discussion. I know politicians might especially be afraid to breach such topics but the Bilderberg Group does exist, it does meet in secret, and is composed of most of the most influential members of government, finance, and industry from around the world. What it does behind closed doors is mostly left up to speculation but this should at least be on the level of “kind of strange” or “weird”, especially considering the long history of distrust Americans have had of secret organizations.

This is was an interesting Reason blog post. A military vetran was recording police arrest a young woman for a DUI in a very aggressive and violent way when they saw him and approched him claiming that he was interfering with the arrest. They then said that the man with the camera then spit on them and assaulted them (the police.) Other cameras on the scene prove this was false but the man still faces charges that could land him ten years in jail. From my interaction with police, this is pretty normal and very unsurprising (especially when they interact with military men). It just makes me wonder how many others have been convicted by the lying testimony of police because they were not lucky enough to have someone on the scene recording the incident.
