The Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms inside the construct of a well regulated militia. The Constitution also guarantees my right and your right to domestic tranquility. There is no situation on the planet earth where the free unregulated flow of high performance firearms, machine guns basically, does anything to secure anybody,…

Decentralization & The Importance of Lewis Brandeis | The Real Ratigan

httpsi.ytimg_.comviwePw3h_EMGUmaxresdefault.jpg

I’ve been talking a lot about centralization versus decentralization, the idea of decentralizing and moving towards human sized institutions for human problems, having the people that solve the problem in your life be close to where you live, solving it on the municipal level. This is not an idea out of thin air. This…

Resource Tech Is the Path to Security | The Real Ratigan

httpsi.ytimg_.comviKp8-AMEGz8Amaxresdefault.jpg

The mistake of the past 100 years is believing that the path to global security is through a strong military and the deployment of weapons technology.

about

ABOUT

Dylan was born in Saranac Lake, New York, a few miles from where the Americans triumphed over the Russians in the “Miracle on Ice” during the 1980 Olympics. He’s now a nomadic road warrior constantly traveling around the country, primarily residing in New York City, Louisiana, California and Chicago.

Dylan is partner and co-founder of a Louisiana-based manufacturer that integrates systems to grow food, purify water, produce solar electricity, establish wireless connectivity, create jobs and provide essential community services. This venture was inspired by US combat veterans who described plug and play integration of housing, food, power and water systems as fundamental to global security.

Known by his strong voice for economic justice on Bloomberg and NBC, Dylan now serves as Chief Skeptic at Tastytrade and Advisor to CyndX. He speaks out daily for transparency, integrity, choice and aligned interests as a commentator, film producer, and author of New York Times Best-Seller “Greedy Bastards.”

Dylan advocates for student-debt reform, veteran employment, food and water security, drug decriminalization, fair economic opportunity and the recognition of money in politics as the root cause of our nation’s challenges. Despite these challenges, Dylan is an optimist who sees the current crisis as a potent opportunity to dramatically transform society for the benefit of all.

Dylan is a passionate fighter for the best in all of us, and an occasional paddle-boarder.

ISSUE ADVOCACY

Dylan sees a country that has allowed itself to be swindled and robbed. He rips the lid off our deeply crooked system – and offers a way out.

Health

Choices made to align the interests of health professionals and patients enhance health. Misaligned interests between health professionals and patients escalate health care costs and do little to promote health. (read more)

Education

Every choice to align the interests of teachers and taxpayers with everyone else through proven group- and web-based problem solving methods enhances all problem-solving; every choice to breach it destroys it. (read more)

Political Corruption

Every choice to align the interests of politicians with everyone else by eliminating money and gerrymandering and closed primaries enhances productive policy making; every choice to breach it destroys it. (read more)

Banking

Every choice to align the interests of bankers with everyone else through capital requirements enhances productive investment; every choice to breach it destroys it. (read more)

Trade

The goal of the connect the dots in trade is to show how capital (money and human resources) is diverted away from one nation to another artificially using currency and tax policy. (read more)
