Bitcoin revives the American dream.
It’s a tough claim, I know.
How would you describe the current landscape of relationship building and family formulation? Typically in my circles it is answered with fear and a general lack of excitement. Why do we think that is so?
I think Fiat problems have permeated every inch of our lives. We (as a general partnership) spend more money than we have to buy goods we don’t need, to impress people we don’t know by pretending to have a life that isn’t real. Everything for clicks and attention.
I feel that this has resulted in the experience of finding a partner being so emotionally and intellectually exhausting that individuals generally abstain from the process entirely. Consider it; when large numbers of people are projecting lives to attract and excite you, but then … when you have access to your life and realize that the basis for first impressions (first impressions) were fiction. In the extreme, it means that the basis for the relationship was laid on a lie. If anyone has ever seen a building collapse due to a shabby foundation, this is not a recipe for future success as failure of the structure is essentially inevitable, not just possible.
So the next question is, “Why is this happening?” Why do individuals try to project false lives to get attention? Well, there are a couple of answers to that, and they all happen at the same time. But I believe there is one single reason that is paramount compared to any other – money. The average single citizen cannot afford to live a life that is not only socially desirable but also capable of amassing wealth. A person has rent, phone bills, health insurance, car payments, etc., all of which can run at almost similar costs. Meanwhile, wages have been cruelly unable to keep up with inflation – kudos to Ben Prentice & wtfhappenedin1971.com for their work detailing the differences. With this in mind, it is very easy to see how the average person’s cost of living can easily exceed average incomes.
All of this boils down to many barriers that create many, many frictions in the form of stress with the very essential and important aspect of life – dating and raising children. What can be done to fix this problem? Fix the money. Fix the Money and Restore Power to the Nuclear Family – Greetings to Marty Bent and Matt Odell for bringing my attention to the structure and importance of the nuclear family.
Marty touched on this topic on a podcast with Whitney Webb, which you can find here.
I believe that the importance of nuclear family structure has been analyzed in an intellectually – and philosophically – dishonest way, and not in relation to the nature of the family structure or in relation to the gender / gender of the parent / guardian.
A structured family environment plays several important roles, both in terms of raising children and particular reproduction and from a social point of view. So that humanity as a species and America as a beacon of freedom can continue to storm headlong into the future and further prosperity for all parties; We need healthy families. Why is this?
I am an individual who genuinely believes that every single person is capable of greatness – that greatness does not reflect the moral of their effect, but the range. In order for these members of society to realize this potential, a structured home environment is necessary, not only to learn the basics of human functioning and socialization as a child, but to spark those moments of wonder and exploration that ultimately lead to what can become passions. These are the passions we humans base our entire lives on – be it in the form of hobbies that turn into careers, or simply enjoying the privacy of a mind. Passion is what defines a man or a woman. These passions will be able to change the very fabric of history; We don’t know what technologies might have been invented if only “x” people had been pushed to focus on a hobby that they enjoyed.
What gets complicated about our species is that every family environment is different, and I’m not here to suggest that Bitcoin can solve these problems. But what Bitcoin does is create a monetary environment that allows individuals to thrive.
As soon as a citizen is able to build up individual wealth that does not lose purchasing power so quickly through a simple vehicle like saving, it enables him to build up a buffer of capital that enables both psychological satisfaction and that of the individual to look to the future to look forward to – seeing a better life as an achievable opportunity.
When this relationship becomes a reality for the individual again, it becomes an even greater force for successful and happy family formation. How many marriages have broken up due to money problems? Dispute over money is a major cause of a large percentage of divorces among Generation X and Boomers alike.
Bitcoin is the asset that can pull the American dream out of the filth of nihilism (which we are currently in) and lift it into the horizon of the rising sun (“… at tomorrow, look east”). to promise a better future worthy of optimism. It is a dark moment in history when a whole population – or a whole society – begins to believe that the future will come to nothing until that belief becomes commonplace. Because without the belief in a better future and without the perception of seeing a “way out” from the current environment – many would call this a “devil’s playground”. Where cases of depression rampant when people lose hope; and where cases of substance abuse and addiction skyrocket when people try to escape their current environment through an altered state of mind. A society in which the money economy can flourish may not be completely free from these scenarios for all of its citizens, but it can reduce them dramatically. How many of us have friends, family, and loved ones who are plagued by depression or addiction and cannot see a way out? How many do we know who postpone starting a family for economic reasons?
I believe that if we fix the money, we can actually fix the world. Bitcoin brings a worldview of family life back to those glorious days of America after World War II. Where families are booming, communities are thriving, and each of our futures is limited only by imagination.
It is worth noting that this also makes the “American Dream” attainable for anyone and everyone, regardless of geographic location, due to Bitcoin’s decentralization, uncensorship and inability to be confiscated.
Bitcoin brings back the American dream for today on a global scale.
Bitcoin offers optimism for a more prosperous, efficient, and fairer future.
Bitcoin is the hope for a better future.
