Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday. These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference. The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.Sounds like the FBI may be concerned about Ron Paul's campaign supporters [ ;) ] or perhaps more generally they are concerned about extreme Libertarians of the Right from a law enforcement perspective.
This is where ignorance about our modern monetary systems can lead: extremism, threats of violence, and accordingly, surveillance. I'm sure many (but probably not all the "hard cases") of these people would not be driven to this form of anti-social behavior and rebellion if they could see their way into the MMT paradigm and truly reach an understanding of how our monetary system operates.
It's really a shame, and many so-called "experts" that these people listen to are very much to blame for provoking these heavy handed policies.
