The cost of a gallon of milk is $12.
A Chiptole bowl with no guac is $17.
Your electric and water bill is something like 30-50% more than it was a year ago.
Maybe you got a small raise this year, like 5% or something, yet the prices of EVERYTHING have increased around 15-25% the last 3 years.
You feel like something is broken. You are unsure what the cause is or what you should do about it.
Do you try to make more money? Do you get a new job? Do you start buying meme stocks or the new dog coin?
Then you think back to Nov 10th, 2021, and this newsletter.
And you shrugged it off because it was “normal” and what everyone else was doing and going through.
So you did nothing.
You didn’t buy Bitcoin or research what inflation is or the history of money and banking and all that stuff.
And you reach out to me with advice. (Well hopefully you do, because if you go to anyone else you’re likely to get a lot of confirmation bias and explaining-away whataboutisms that won’t help you.)
And I’ll tell you to buy as much Bitcoin as you can and keep buying. I’ll also tell you to understand why because when you understand WHY Bitcoin, you are hopeful.
You become optimistic.
You’ll have a solution to your problem and you’ll have hope for the future.
Inflation is real and it’s only going to get worse because the US dollar and the Federal Reserve have completely lost control. They have printed so much money and messed with the free market so much that anything they do will result in catastrophe.
Don’t be one of the free unprepared.
Be one of the few that took matters into your own hands rather than trusting the Useful Idiots that have historically let us down.
And don’t stick your head in the sand.
What to expect below:
inflation and what to do about it
What if the people in power didn’t know what they were doing yet pretended to?
Being selfish AF
📰 News 🚨
Inflation has been here for years, you just haven’t felt it that much because the world around you in the US is defined by the deflationary nature of technology.
Simply put: things have been getting better and cheaper while at the same time more expensive.
It takes some time to understand this topic fully.
All I’ll say right now is the history of currency is one defined by crisis after crisis, with most currencies failing. The US dollar in 2021 is no different than any other currency that is not backed by physical things. It is based on air, by decree (fiat).
And you can’t ignore the basic laws of thermodynamics—you can’t get something for nothing.
So for as long as a government creates nothing out of thin air, something will be paid. The thing is, it’s always the lower classes that pay while the upper classes get rich.
Bitcoin is the first time in human history that money has been discovered that removes human nature from the equation. Because no one person, government, or group can ever make more of, restrict, or otherwise control Bitcoin, it is already one of the most important inventions of the human race.
The early adopters of Bitcoin that have done the work to see BItcoin for what it truly is will benefit tremendously in the coming years as we go from $68k a Bitcoin (today) to $100k, then $250, then $500k, then $1,000,000, then $1.5 mil, then 2 mil, then 2.5 mil, to 5, to 10, to 20, and beyond.
The most important thing you can do for your life and future is buy and hold Bitcoin.
You will either buy now or you will buy later… the difference will be the price you pay.
A hilarious take on trying to control the narrative but being a joke that everyone sees through:
President Biden @POTUSJobs are up, wages are up, home values are up, personal debt is down, and unemployment is down. We have more work to do, but there is no question that the economy continues to recover and is in much better shape today than it was a year ago.

🦾 How to be dangerous → Be more of who you are. Don’t people please or self-censor because all that does is prevent you from attracting the people that belong in your life while doing nothing to thwart the people that don’t belong. BE YOU UNAPOLOGETICALLY AND AS RUTHLESSLY AS POSSIBLE.

🔨 Product I bought recently → Table saw, Ryobi power tool set 18v → love these things, with interchangeable batteries. This is one of the strongest network effects I’ve ever seen outside of Big Tech platforms. Since you own multiple of the batteries, anytime you need a tool you search ryobi + tool. I’m now at 20 ryobi tools. And while this brand gets a bad rep for being “cheap,” I completely disagree.

After doing the UF mineral test, I found some alarming mineral imbalances.
I had high mercury, low sodium, and potassium.
To correct this, I started a daily stack that includes Upgraded Magnesium and Potassium, Upgraded Memory with Boron, and the Upgraded Iodine.
Since adding UF to my daily routine, my sleep is better and that mid-afternoon "slump" is nonexistent.
I’ve always known that minerals matter, but it wasn’t until I tested myself that I was able to see exactly what I needed.

💬 A Quote To Ponder
“A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live.”
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
People today are so afraid.
They don’t want to offend or hurt anyone’s feelings.
And they are creating a world with fake feedback loops that sweep reality under the rug.
This rot will fester until it bubbles out.
When it does, few will be ready.
