  • An Anti-State, Anti-Fed Thriller-Romance?

    Here is the synopsis of “Silver Circle,” a forthcoming, animated, liberty-themed film: Picture a world with crisis-fueled cycles of government growth, inflation, nationalization, bailouts, and the corrosion of liberty. With each crisis, the Federal Reserve grows, yet remains below the public radar. Not exactly farfetched, eh? But in the film’s state-dominated world, the spirit of liberty still lives on …

To be blunt, repeatedly falling back on useless lines like “live, laugh, love” probably undermines one’s ability to actually do those things. But there is one such cliche’ that gets me, *ahem,* rather sappy in  Gandhi’s “be the change you wish to see.”  This beautiful, …
