Don’t Tread On Meme is the marketing effort for an economics project.
Every day, people like you act with kindness, consent, and when conflicts arise they tend to find win-win solutions. They seek restitution, not retribution. They honor their agreements.
They wish to develop their talents and simply live without asking permission from whom none is due.
They want to build stable businesses at home and abroad without artificial barriers, distortions, or a rigged system of accounting.
DTOM embraces a world of diversity and prosperity and we believe that what unites us all is the desire to share our talents and exchange our creations.
We believe defensive force to be a universal human right, in contrast to aggressive force which is a regressive path for civilization. Therefore we reject the initiation of force whether it is done in the first person or in the case of non-consensual fees and controls which are simply an outsourcing of the initiation of force.
Because we believe in living by consent and not coercion, trade and not violence, agreements and not orders, we embrace a currency familiar to millions and one not easily manipulated, cheated, inflated, or embezzled.
We find silver coin to be that currency.
We seek an alternative from the boom & bust, pump & dump schemes of government central banks and fractional-reserve banking cartels. We read Austrian Economics.
You may disagree and we encourage you to find what works for you.
We started the project in hopes it would inspire others to make it their own. Visit our new French friends The Sound Money. They are providing a peaceful alternative as the Euro meets the same fate as the FRN!
2012 A Silver Odyssey (The Moneylith Video)
To further promote the concept of silver as an affordable and accessible barter money, Don’t Tread On Meme purchased a vending machine in January 2012 with the sponsorship of silver dealers Roberts & Roberts Brokerage, Inc., along with Freedom’s Phoenix, Silver Circle Movie, The Shire Society, Freedom Engineering, Shire Silver, Porcfest 2012, RTR.org, and Antiwar.com. The machine became a prop for economic and political “street theater” at events such as Ron Paul campaign appearances and liberty conferences. Due to the black monolithic appearance and its purpose as a “sentinel” for economic evolution, it became the inspiration for this web-based featurette film 2012: A Silver Odyssey written as an allegory to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
