Silver Circle Review on Nolatarian Blog

December 4th, 2012

What’s that? You’ve never heard of a Nolatarian? It’s a neologism of “New Orleans, Louisianan” (NOLA), and “libertarian.” The Nolatarian blog covers the most important liberty and free market related news and issues facing the people of New Orleans. Caleb Trotter writes for Nolatarian and came to our screening of the Silver Circle film at New Orleans Comic Con last weekend. Here’s what he wrote in his review.


This weekend, Nov. 30, 2012 – Dec. 2, Wizard World’s Comic Con was in town. Usually, that isn’t something I’d really bother to mention here, but this year Lineplot Productions brought their new full length animated film, Silver Circle, to the convention for its second public screening before it is released in theaters in January 2013.

The plot focuses on America in the year 2019 in the wake of financial collapse. Prices have skyrocketed on most consumer goods and fuel in response to the Federal Reserve’s continued printing of money. Additionally, the Fed is directly engaging in managing home prices. In fact, the Fed regularly employs SWAT-like raid squads to forcibly evict homeowners who refuse to sell their homes to the Fed at Fed mandated prices.

The story is told through the eyes of a Fed arson investigator, Jay, searching for clues after several recently Fed-evicted homes burn down in a single neighborhood. Along the way he meets Zoe and a band of rebels who illegally mint silver coins in their attempts to undermine the Fed and stabilize the economy.

Being that this is a subject near and dear to many libertarians and Ron Paul Republicans, it’s refreshing to see the message of the dangers of the Federal Reserve system told through an untraditional medium that remains compelling. If you’ve ever attempted to explain these concepts to someone you understand the challenge that Silver Circle faces.

Fortunately though, their team is comprised of several talented artists who have provided the Fed fearing community with another valuable tool to use in spreading the message Ron Paul has worked so hard over the years to get out. With Dr. Paul retiring from Congress in January, what better timing than now for the release of the film.

About the Author: Davi Barker

In grade school Davi refused to recite the pledge of allegiance because he didn't understand what it meant. He was ordered to do as he was told. In college he spent hours scouring through the congressional record trying to understand this strange machine. That's where he discovered Dr. Ron Paul. In 2007 he joined the End The Fed movement and found a political home with the libertarians. The Declaration of Independence claims that the government derives its power “from the consent of the governed." He does not consent.
