Life After The State

I’ve written a book.

It contains everything you need to know. It will solve all your problems and bring profound understanding.

Actually it’s a book about money and social systems – the result of all the reading and study that came with my unexpected foray into gold many years ago.

I’m publishing it with Unbound, who are changing the way publishing works. Before a book is published, readers hear a pitch. If they like the idea, they can pledge to support it. In exchange for a pledge you receive rewards – in addition to the unadulterated pleasure of owning and reading the book yourself. The bigger the pledge, the bigger the reward.

I need your help to get the book published. I really do. So please go the website, hear the pitch – and make a pledge. Here’s the link.

This book can save the world. So by helping me, you are actually helping to save the world. Saving the world is a pretty good thing to have done on a Wednesday.

And also I’ll know exactly who has pledged. And, more importantly – who hasn’t. So if our relationship is worth anything …

Here’s that link once again .

And here’s the video pitch:

    Dominic – I heard you on R4 this morning 6/11/13 although I’ve been following your gold thoughts for some time. What I seemed to understand (only through my knowledge of your wider corpus) is that the judgement and services of the state have no tangible unit of measure, and even gold is no longer a hard measurement of that since the loss of the standard. How do we measure a ‘unit of happiness’ or a ‘unit of freedom’? Quantifying these kind of values are key to a functional stateless nation. Without that measure, corporations (state is one of them!) will be unable to track the value of their output and ROI of their personnel. That last statement sounded a bit socialist, but we are swiftly approaching a world where there isn’t enough work to go round, so the consideration of ‘work as happiness’ will have to come into play. Society will need to engage all its members and help them feel needed, and make efficiency and share prices secondary in certain cases.

  • If you have not already done so Dominic watch Larkin Rose here

    Best wishes

    Hi Dominic – just finished reading your book which I found very enlightening – thanks.
    Have you come across Chris Coverdale of Make Wars History, or the Tax Rebellion website? Basically, as the government is engaged in unlawful acts of war, we are breaking the law by paying tax and thus enabling them; if enough of us withhold tax they will be forced to stop.
