When I first received the e-mail from Bernard Von NotHaus, the founder of the liberty dollar, I thought this was a joke. From the e-mail:
Dear Fellow Liberty Dollar Supporters,
Swwooosh. During the 60s, Star Trek’s Captain Kirk and his crew took many of us to the “final frontier” to “explore new worlds” as they sought out new civilizations and developed deep thought-provoking plots. You didn’t have to be a “trekkie” to enjoy “the voyages of the starship Enterprise.” Now, Lt. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), Chekov (Walter Koenig) and members of the various Star Trek crews will star in Liberty Films, a new venture launched by the Liberty Institute and will feature Liberty Dollars!
Can you imagine, liberty themed movies using Liberty Dollars? Can you see yourself in such a movie? Can you contemplate the enormous impact when liberty based concepts are presented in a hip entertaining media like movies? While the message can be subtle, the impact is very strong. That is exactly what is happening.
Now, I’m a proud user of The Liberty Dollar and I was certainly a fan of Star Trek back in the day, but I’m a little skeptical for now. However, feel free to check out their website,and see what you think. They have a lot of actors from the old Star Trek series and they are already in production.
