Why Share?

Why would anyone freely share knowledge about how to make money? A better question is, "Why not?" The more people know, the more wealth we possess. The more wealth we possess, the more freedom we enjoy.

The United States was formed with these goals in mind:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Our Founding Fathers understood that any honest government, one that respects freedom and personal wealth, will eventually be challenged by the same swindlers and thieves they kicked out of America. Continuing the paragraph:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Our Founding Father's wisdom is another reason I freely share. We are in the midst of another great power struggle to retain our nation's freedom and our wealth. If you don't realize that, you soon will. Perhaps you've lost a significant portion of your wealth to the latest incarnation of assailants, already.
