My tribute to Murray Ruthbard

in #murrayruthbard11 months ago (edited)


I can't tell you my whole story, I have tried to cover it in much earlier posts. But in headlines. I did study economics at Copenhagen University for an extended period of time, always looking for answers to all my questions, which I never found at University. I started studying at the economic faculty in Copenhagen University in 1997 and ended my 'master studies' in 2010. In Denmark a "kandidatgrad i Økonomi" is supposed to take 5 years ;)... and it is something in between a masters degree and a phd. We have our own system that is older then the American.

When I was in "Folkeskolen" what there come close to primary school, I was almost not accept for "Gymnasium" which is close to High-school, but for some weird reason they accepted me in the last minute. That is how my whole school career has been. In High-school I spend most of my time in the music rehearsal room close to my home and not reading books, so I was expelled and had to go to exams in all ~11 subjects, where as normal students had to go to exams in ~4 subjects.

When I graduated, almost the whole High-school was outside the examination room, waiting to see if I graduated or not.

So I spend 13 years in University looking for answers I never found, off-course I was doing other things on the side (or most of the time?) since it took so long, right?... yes, when I was about 23 years old, I was hired as a student worker for the science ministry. One evening at work, the science-minister of Denmark at that time, wanted my expertise, so I was in a meeting with the minister at the age of 23 years old, still at student, had to advise him about the Internet!

That was just to mention on special experience at the time. There where many others like that.

I was a rebel of nature and I actually wanted to make music. Singing and playing guitar. I had been in several successful bands as a teenager and I saw the job as an economist as a way to finance my music career. Which was a crazy logic I learned later.

Long story short, a young girl of 21 years, got pregnant with my daughter, after only knowing her a few months. I was happy, because I wanted to be a father. She wanted me to do all kind of changes in my life and her parents wanted to boss me around, something that my 28 years old very independence self could not accept. I had my own rules, I don't think they where bad, they where just very independent. So she ran away with the child pregnant. I never saw my daughter ever, today I know she is 12 years old.

At the exact date that Ditte, the mother to my daughter Amanda give birth (we find out 1.5 years later), Joanne (living as a student in the capital of Brazil, Brasilia) write me a letter. 3 months later Joanne and I live together in Copenhagen. We get married and move to Malmö, Sweden in a small apartment in the middle of the city, where we live while our son (born inside the marriage) come to the world. Unfortunately we couldn't get the marriage to work for both of us and we divorce in 2010, when our son Angelo is about 1.5 years old. We have kept contact till this day, even it hasn't been very easy all the time.

So what does all of this have to do with Murray Ruthbard?

That is a good question, I am not sure I have the answer for.

But Murray Ruthbard's work was exactly what I was looking for for 13 years in University, but never found. I knew that something was wrong with everything that I had learned in University, Society, family and so on, but I didn't have the exact words to describe it before I found Murray Ruthbard's work.

Now I don't know if he had children, but I think he never got that? Which if it is true is very sad, as he deserved it 10000 times more then any other 'economist' of maybe all times.

No one in university ever talked about Murray Ruthbard. I was kindof living a double life for many years. I was following the classes at university and at the same time listening to all kind of alternative people on the internet.

I know that I personally found Bitcoin in April 2013 and I don't remember when I found Murray Ruthbard, but maybe 1 or 2 years later.

In 2004 I was already convinced that the "current money system" was a fraud, controlled by Illuminati or Freemasons (or what ever you want to call those entities or people). I know that the word Illuminati doesn't sound right for most white people, many other races, seems to have a higher rate of people that know that Illuminati exists.

Now can you imagine, the type of life I been living, as the only white person in my circles that knew about Illuminati?

I was not talking about it directly to friends and colleagues for many years. It came later and then they all disappeared!

FYI in 2016, about the same time I joined Steem, I realized that there was many FLAT EARTH videos on YouTube, and for that reason I had to watch them all to understand what was/is going on. Shortly after I knew that the earth is flat. I tried to convince other people, mostly over the internet, but had to experience how deep the brainwashing is, and that most people or like 95% cannot wake up to flat earth or Illuminati from you just talking about it or sending videos.

So about the same time I see this woman called Tatiana Moroz ( ) and I fall in love with her... till this day I understand that she is not attracted or interested in this old (little? 175 cm FYI) fatty man!! LOL...

I excuse my overweight with the extreme early waking almost ALONE to extreme topics, but that doesn't seem to work with nice ladies like Tatiana, That's life, I can move on, I was lucky to father 2 children, outside of relationship as of today.

So here we are now... there happened so many other thing in my life... extreme situations, that most people, I believe, never come close to.

I have to thank my parents for that I am not homeless and that I am still a pretty stable functioning person, I believe that many people would not be, if they experienced what I did. But that is just my thoughts, who knows if it is true?

I want to end this post with saying that Murray Ruthbard, was the only economist that I ever agreed with, after studying a lot of them for many many many years.

Thanks Murray Ruthbard for bringing reason and truth to the world.

Stay blessed

PS: If you don't already know, Murray Ruthbard formulated Anarcho Capitalism.


A mini-biography! It seems like music is your passion, even more than studying economies. Maybe you could form a music-economy!

I'll be learning more about Murray Ruthbard, his thoughts look very interesting.

Hallo @ironshield , I am surpriced that I am the first to break to you that Murray Ruthbard was the "father" of Anarcho capitalism, he actually just described the natural state of a free society.

I am sure you will never forget him now, as I think you was already are an anarcho capitalist by mind, hence crypto currency is 100% pure anarcho capitalism. I don't know about his other works, I think they where irrelevant, at-least for me they are.

You are the only person I have regular contact with that both are an anarcho capitalist (I assume, based on what I know about you) and a flat earther, we are an extremely rare bread of today, therefore we need to stick together and support each other.

6000 LASSECASH in my upvote.

Btw there is a few bugs on, like your LASSECASH POWER does not show and "Decline payment" doesn't show on LASSECASH site, they are working on it, and should be fixed at the end of the week. The currency and posts are 100% secure on the STEEM blockchain it is just a few bugs in the viewing of stuff.

We have a lot in common and philosophically my views run similarly to anarcho-capitalism (anti-statism), however I don't know if my views align 100%, I'll have to learn more about anarcho-capitalism.

I believe in the rule of law, however any law that is unlawful or unjust is not a law at all. I have an anti-statism view not because I'm anti-statist exactly, but I'm anti-statist because of unjust practices and regulations imposed by the state. Lawless laws and regulations are getting worse and worse and unjust cronyism runs rampant.

The founding fathers of the United States were the "anarcho-caplitalists" of their day. One feature of the union of states is to forbid tyrannical practices, protecting "certain unalienable rights" for all people within it's borders. They did not believe that rights were administered by the state, but by our Creator. They also professed that the state must NEVER trample upon the God-given rights of the people. If any of the states practiced tyranny, it is the people's duty to overthrow the corrupt state and form a new one. This is why the "right to bear arms shall not be infringed" is included in the United States constitution.

Wicked Powers are hiding our Creator. They hide Him by convincing us that there is no Heaven, only an empty vacuum of space. If there is no Heaven, there is no God. If there is no God, there are no God-given rights. All we are left with is State-given rights which the State can revoke at their will. The State becomes our god. It's like when Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness: "Bow down to me and all this will be yours." No. If we want freedom, we cannot sell our souls.

Heaven is real. The earth is flat.

Yes, I think we have a lot in common.

I also think you are a little confused, let me try to help.

"The founding fathers of the United States were the "anarcho-caplitalists" of their day." This statement is false, as anarcho capitalism is defined as a stateless society where there is one principal, the none aggression principal.

I am agnostic, meaning I don't know if there is a god or not, but I am open to the possibility.

Actually I believe that the state is a construct build by satanism. That satan created statism as a mechanism to enslave people. People that are statists believe they do the right thing when they follow the laws of statism, but in reality they are slaves to satan without knowing it.

This is the best work of Stefan Molyneux, before he went back to talk about statism a little too much:

As power corrupts, any state will always be corrupt, because when there is a state you have a ruling class, who will always be corrupted.

Anarcho capitalism is "anto-statism". There can be politics and rules created by private companies, as an example in a shopping mall there are certain rules, but you have the option to go there or not, where as in a state you have no option to opt out, you are a slave to the state where you are citizen in. This is against the none aggression principal.

I don't know if there is a heaven as described in the bible, but I do believe the earth is flat and that the planet is a satanic lie.

Thank you for the thoughtful reply.
