Panama is still an obvious escape hatch

At the turn of the 20th century, the United States had recently become the largest economy in the world… and it was showing.

The US had just vanquished Spain in the Spanish-American War, resulting in a vast new American colonial empire, stretching from the Philippines to Puerto Rico.

AOC’s terrorist propaganda video

“I’m not here to poo poo you,” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told 4.8 million followers on a live Instagram broadcast over the weekend.

“I’m not here to say you’re wrong. Or that you’re a bad person. . . I’m not here to shame you.”

But to AOC, not voting for Biden is the worst possible sin.[...] Click here to continue reading

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by Viktorija, our Sovereign Woman]

If Simon were writing this letter, I have no doubt he would start off telling you a wonderful tale dating back thousands of years to Turkey’s ancient history… probably something about the Trojan War.

I’ve always been a fan of Simon’s historical stories. But I don’t have his command of the humanities.

So I’ll start off today’s letter telling you about[...] Click here to continue reading

While I was sitting in the ER, I thought of these three other countries with great healthcare

Around 2:30am a few days ago when I was deep asleep, my significant other suddenly shook me awake and asked me to take her to the emergency room.

She told me she was having trouble breathing and her heart was racing, so we immediately hopped in the car and raced to a nearby urgent care clinic.

Fortunately it all turned out fine. But it was my first experience seeing the Puerto Rico medical[...] Click here to continue reading

California’s governor makes ominous prediction for America

California’s governor made a rather ominous prediction this weekend when he told an interviewer that “California is America. . . fast forward.”


He was talking specifically about the wildfires that have ravaged his state-- a warning that the natural disasters will soon plague the rest of the country too, thanks to climate change.


But his comment should really be taken more broadly… because California really is a snapshot of America in the near future.

The new puritans are on the prowl

In the spring of 1692, Giles Corey was 80 years old when his wife was accused of witchcraft.

I met expats overseas who are absolutely thriving

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by our Sovereign Woman—Viktorija.]

Just like Simon, I’m probably one of the world’s worst tourists.

When I travel somewhere, I prefer to experience real life in the country or city that I’m visiting.

So my schedule is usually full of meetings and networking with local entrepreneurs, attorneys, bankers, and foreign expats, trying to get a feel for the place.
