Here's a tweet that perfectly encapsulates how the US public is viewed by mainstream economic "experts" and the political class; a bunch of farm animals who are to be milked for as much money as possible.
"If the technology makes it impossible to know people's capital gains, then the technology should not exist."
Put another way, if a technology prevents us from surveilling US citizens so that we can extort them for as much money as possible under the threat of jail time, it should not exist. You are nothing more than an input in a function that produces the War Machine which plunders the Earth and commits mass time theft from its "constituents". The masks are all coming off as the chaos intensifies. True intentions are being laid bare and hand waving appeasement of the rule of law isn't even attempted anymore. You should not be allowed to leverage one of the most important inventions of our time because we won't be able to tax you as much.
The silver lining of this whole infrastructure bill debacle is the fact that it is becoming abundantly clear that the government is petrified of Bitcoin and the leverage it provides the individual. Bitcoin works and that is a very unsettling fact for an incumbent system that cannot compete on merit and stands to lose everything. The war will only heat up from here. But make no mistake, Bitcoin will emerge victorious. There is no stopping and idea whose time has come.
Life is a precious thing. Don't waste it.
Enjoy your weekend, freaks.
