we should not fear, nor be proud of, jail time.

on this note...something I've been mulling over for a lil' while (that I
have absolutely no idea how it would work out or could be worked, but
throw it out for people to chew on)...An effective way to become more
community based is that of a local based currency, which a few small towns
in the US have put into use. Obviously a local currency is extremely
useful in setting up alternatives to the NWO....what about a local
e-currency? The extreme diversity of talents and resources of a global
population all wanting to get out of the State's coffers? The
possibilities are fucking, how do we do it?
