About Sovereign Man
Personal liberty is deteriorating, the economy is on life support and can flat line any day now, governments around the world are getting crushed by debt, and it’s all getting worse at an exponential rate.
Out of these circumstances Sovereign Man was born, and since 2009 we’ve scoured the globe for information, solutions and contacts that help individuals and companies rise above the problematic politics of bankrupt nation states and the fraudulent and fragile financial system.
Our goal at Sovereign Man is to help you make more money, keep more of it and take back your freedom from out of control, destructive governments.

Let’s face it: There is something messed up with the world we’re living in.
Personal liberty is deteriorating…
The economy is on life support and could flat line any day now…
Governments around the world are getting crushed by debt, and are resorting to financial controls and other restrictions to “fix the economy”…
And it’s all getting worse at an exponential rate.
However, let’s be clear – it’s not all doom and gloom.
For smart, rational people like you and me who are willing to break free of the status quo, the opportunities to grow wealth, keep more of it, and protect ourselves from out-of-control governments are abundant.
The path to freedom and prosperity begins with a clear understanding of the biggest problems we’re up against.
And once we’ve identified those problems, we can take simple actions to solve them with practical solutions that make sense no matter what happens.
Today’s bureaucrats are making the same mistakes that didn’t work last time…
Without a doubt, you’re no longer living in the country you grew up in.
Smart, responsible people want to know:
1. “What’s going to happen next?” and…
2. “How can I prepare for it (and prosper from it)?”
The strange thing about the problems we’re experiencing right now is how many times they’ve happened before.
It’s as if the bureaucrats are sitting around choosing the worst plays from the pages of history.
At Sovereign Man, we routinely draw from historical lessons to highlight this time is not different.
What can we learn from previous economic/societal crashes?
Throughout the 18th century, for example, France was the greatest superpower in Europe, if not the world.
But they became complacent, believing that they had some sort of ‘divine right’ to reign supreme, and that they could be as fiscally irresponsible as they liked.
The French government spent money like drunken sailors; they had substantial welfare programs, free hospitals, and grand monuments.
They held vast territories overseas, engaged in constant warfare, and even had their own intrusive intelligence service that spied on King and subject alike.
Of course, they couldn’t PAY for any of this (sound familiar?).
French budget deficits were out of control, and they resorted to going heavily into debt and rapidly debasing their currency.
The French economy ultimately failed, bringing with it a 26-year period of hyperinflation, civil war, military conquest, and genocide.
Look, history is full of examples, from ancient Mesopotamia to the Soviet Union, which show that whenever societies reach unsustainable levels of resource consumption and allocation, they collapse.
How can we apply this to what’s happening today?
Right now, the US is consuming TRILLIONS more than it produces, resulting in an unprecedented level of debt (over $19,000,000,000,000 – that’s nineteen trillion).
No other country in the history of the world has ever amounted this much debt.
And other Western governments are in a similar boat – from the UK to Greece, Spain, France (again) and Italy.
The writing is on the wall…
This level of spending is unsustainable.
And when you look at the raw numbers, there is no sign of improvement anywhere on the horizon.
