61. Bullion is an asset. A system of measure cannot be used to measure itself.

81. The producers and consumers own their market and the people own their political jurisdictions.
82. Political jurisdictions represent the people’s assets.
83. A political jurisdiction is that part of the natural world a given population assumes responsibility for.

In 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg Cathedral. The resultant reformation changed the world... but not enough. For 500 years mankind has suffered under secular authorities that have never had any greater legitimacy than had the pope. The Anarchist Reformation is about to begin. Another set of theses has been uploaded. The secular authorities are being challenged. Let’s see if the can proof their legitimacy. The Anarchist Reformation finishes what was started 500 years ago. The last vestiges of illicit power will be swept away. Follow us and watch how it happens.
