I wasn't aware of the exact reason for Irwin Schiff's imprisonment, but encouraging tax evasion would fit into his theory of what ails the
US and world economy. He argued that fiat currency is not real money
and therefore earnings in fiat currency must be converted to real money
before tax rates are applied. Obviously, this kind of reasoning was bound
to get him in trouble with the IRS.
My feeling is that his main crime was writing a book, which if widely
read, would cause a Revolution and bring down the Pigs who stold the
original American Revolution. (This is a referral to the book "Animal Farm"
by George Orwell)
Right now, the whole Pig System of debt slavery is unraveling before
our very eyes, just as Irwin Schiff predicted it would. Schiff understood
the mind set of the insiders, because he was raised as an insider himself, but
like Jesus, rose up against his own kind. Consequently, he is being harshly
treated as a traitor to his own kind, which is why he needs to be sprung
from prison before he dies there.
