Edward G. Griffin's Red Pill Expo
November 6-7, 2021
Join G. Edward Griffin, and a host of other notable speakers for an event that will BLOW YOUR MIND.
If you’re familiar with the 1999 sci-fi movie The Matrix, you may recall the red and blue pills.
The blue pill allowed the hero Neo (played by Keanu Reeves) to remain in a computer induced illusion which SEEMED like the real world. But it was fake … and hid the reality of Neo’s enslavement.
The mysterious mentor Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) challenged Neo to take the red pill and “free your mind” … and see the much harsher reality.
Neo took the red pill. And once enlightened, became engaged in a very real world fight for true freedom.
But for one of Neo’s comrades, the artificial prosperity of slavery was too tempting. It was easier to enjoy faux freedom than fight for the real thing.
What does this have to do with real estate investing?
Maybe nothing. Maybe everything.
G. Edward Griffin’s iconic book, The Creature from Jekyll Island – a Second Look at the Federal Reserve, pulled back the curtain on the origins, mechanics and motivations of what is arguably the most powerful institution on the face of the earth.
It’s a VERY controversial work. Not everyone agrees. But it opens the imagination to the possibility there’s more to the Fed and the monetary system than meets the eye.
In fact, The Creature from Jekyll Island, was one of the primary motivations for Robert Kiyosaki to get involved in financial education … leading to the creation of the Cash Flow board game, and the epic best-seller Rich Dad Poor Dad.
Some lay the blame for the dot com stock bust and subsequent real estate bust and mortgage meltdown directly at the feet of the Fed. That alone makes the Fed worthy of study by any serious real estate investor. After all, the Fed is overtly and directly involved in manipulating interest rates … which affects the cost of mortgages … and nearly everything else.
The Fed could just be the tip of the iceberg …
The foundation of real estate riches is private property rights. Every real estate investor should be VERY aware of any infringement upon their rights to own and profit from property.
But what if there are some people who believe your rights to profit from your property should be limited? And what if they’re working behind the scenes to infringe on your property rights?
Anyone paying attention knows this has been going on for some time. It started innocently enough with eminent domain laws, which subordinated the individual’s property rights to the “greater good” based on the government’s best judgment.
Of course, there’s a long list of abuses of eminent domain. But until it gets close to home, no one pays attention.
Later, the wars on drugs and terror effectively suspended due process clauses … allowing the government to seize property first and prove guilt later. Not surprisingly, there’s a growing list of abuses here also.
But again, as long as it’s the “other” guy and not you, it’s (maybe) okay.
Today, there are global environmental treaties being contemplated which may further erode your private property rights. Where will they lead? How will YOU be affected?
We’re attending the Red Pill Expo to find out.
More than just money …
On our 2016 Investor Summit at Sea™ we did a special panel discussion called Health – The Ultimate Wealth … which turned out to be one of the most popular sessions of the Summit.
After all, what does it profit you to gain a fortune in real estate but lose the health and vitality to enjoy it?
This Summit at Sea™ special session was born out of a personal crisis … when one of our very own was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
This led to an urgent study of the disease and treatment options, and ultimately to a shocking discovery about alternative treatments which are largely hidden from cancer patients.
We’d heard the stories. But until we experienced it first hand, it just seemed like so much conspiracy theory.
But it’s not.
And it made us wonder … what other really important things do we not know about?
Standing on the edge …
Legendary shock rocker Frank Zappa said it best … “The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it’s open.”
We’ve developed immense respect for G. Edward Griffin. He is smart, curious, bold, and very concerned about what’s going on in the world. If he’s paying attention, so are we.
And who knows? We might just pick up another piece of life-changing information or make yet another valuable relationship.
