III. Risk Management
“The Object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”~Marcus Aurelius
In a high-friction environment, risk management is the most important investment for building personal and family wealth. It’s absolutely imperative that you not get harvested. There is no point in making millions of dollars in your career and in your investment portfolio if you are just going to let it “flow out the back door” as a result of falling prey to poor management and habits, financial or health frauds, and other forms of organized crime, war, and mass atrocity.
Control and freedom happen one person at a time. Powered by AI, software, and telecommunications systems that we fund and the financial incentives that we navigate, the control grid operates throughout our lives and intimate spaces. Backing out requires that we make sound choices about the choices and risks created by the control grid as well as life in a period defined by change and uncertainty.
