“That Guy’s” Response to Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad on Anarcho-Capitalism
“That Guy’s” Response to Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad on Anarcho-Capitalism by Jeff Berwick – Dollar Vigilante
I recently ran into Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and had heard him say many anarchist sounding things so thought I would ask him if he was an anarchist.
I detailed what happened next here, “Is Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad MK Ultra Mind Controlled or Just Having a Nervous Breakdown?”
Yesterday, he responded to what happened with, “Why I Flipped Out on the Guy Who Called Me an Anarchist.”
But, his response begins,
“During the event, I was approached by a stranger who asked me if I was an anarchist. I informed him I wasn’t, but he kept pressing the issue, eventually pushing me to the point of extreme irritation.
Turns out the man is a semi-celebrity in the anarchy circles and a self-described anarcho-capitalist. Not taking my answers at face value, he continued to try and fit me into a label, and I did not appreciate it. Nor did he appreciate my getting angry with him.
In all honesty, it’s not worth responding but I did consider this a good opportunity to clarify further my beliefs about government and politics.”
He then states, “I’m not political at all.” Which is what an anarchist would say.
And said, “In the end, the only person that can save you is you.” Which is what an anarchist would say.
He then went on to say that smart people find ways to not pay taxes. Which is what an anarchist would say.
Given this and many of his other anti-government statements anyone can see why the question needed to be asked, “Are you an anarchist?”
I asked if he was an anarchist and he said no. I then asked if he believed in government and he said no. So, I said that if he doesn’t believe in government it makes him an anarchist.
