Problem 2: Economic Monopoly Destroys Freedom

The government has monopoly power over the creation and issuance of money. Have you ever played the game Monopoly? Good. Then you know what will happen to our economy.

In this series of articles, we present the concept of an economic democracy, which is something that the authors of the US Constitution understood clearly. The articles then walk you through how the US Constitution was reinterpreted to mean exactly the opposite of what its authors wrote and how that reinterpretation was used to create an economic monopoly. It then explains how and why government uses its monopolistic powers to concentrate power to itself.
