From the Author
Who am I?
Just a man that decided to speak. Just a man who wants to look into the eyes of my children and know that I did not betray their future. Just a man who wants a world bursting with harmony, peace, and prosperity rather than collapsed by division, strife, war, and a debtor economy.
Initially, I wrote this book for an audience of one, an outlet to express my view of the world, a distraction from a health challenge that was trying to kill me. But as the book grew into form and substance, I began to see that others might find it useful to help them understand how the Self and law interact, and more importantly, how this fundamental understanding determines whether we walk this earth as victim or master.
Now, more than ever, we need to understand who we are, and to whom we serve. Do we really know? Forbidden Property will demonstrate beyond any doubt that many of our so-called truths are false beyond our greatest fears. Knowing the truth may terrify you, but possessing the truth can also help return the power and property that is yours to claim.
We live in perilous times: non-existent privacy, diminished due process, search and seizures upon flimsy evidence, detainment without counsel, rabid suspicion, fear and paranoia. Is this the world promised by the Constitution and Bill of Rights? Is this the world we want for our children? In order to implement change, we must first uncover our root problems. Only then can we free ourselves from the obstacles in our path. While Forbidden Property may seem focused on a narrow aspect of big problem, I believe it reveals the root of our predicament. My focus, my goal, my purpose in writing this book is to promote fundamental principles that will encourage and support harmony, peace, and prosperity -not just for America, but for the world at large. Everything in this book, every word, every concept, every proposal, was considered in light of this final goal. We must first take the pebble out of our shoe before we can walk that path. We must first discover our forbidden property, for therein lies our power. Therein lie the keys to harmony, peace, and prosperity.
The conclusions presented in Forbidden Property are self-evident and undeniable, yet difficult to accept. Difficult or not, you will know truth when you see it. What you do with that "truth" will determine your future. Will you be a victim or the master of your destiny? Will you help to produce a future filled with harmony, peace, and prosperity, or allow its present course to reap more discord, war, and debt.
