The human-changing potential of Bitcoin
At the beginning of 2022, we should all pause and be amazed at how far Bitcoin has come in the last 13 years. What began as a white paper has grown into a healthy, robust, youthful global phenomenon in its infancy.
Against the backdrop of the higher and higher gears of the clown world simulation, Bitcoin has become a heartbeat and a source of truth and understanding for millions around the world. The importance of an individually enforced, voluntarily sought, collective and objective truth cannot be overestimated.
But despite the very real, practical, and undeniable advances that have been made, there are many who continue with their salty disbelief and shout at clouds of uninformed variants of the same, weary anti-Bitcoin arguments.
“What if [insert uninformed China FUD]? “
“How about [insert uninformed energy FUD}?”
Look at [insert pointless tea-leaf chart FUD]? “
I can only watch as the naysayers, FUDsters, scammers and fathers do their best to confuse others and themselves on their way into economic insignificance. And while I am now immune to their stupidity, I can’t help but pity them, or perhaps regret their lack of hope and faith.
It reminds me a little of the scene in “The Matrix Reloaded,” where the team prepares to enter the Matrix so Neo can meet the architect. Morpheus preaches appropriately, reminding everyone that he sees providence where some see chance.
“I see no coincidence, I see providence. I see purpose. I think our destiny is to be here. It’s our fate, ”he says.
Niobe then asks:
“I keep thinking, what if you’re wrong? What if all of this, the prophecy, is all nonsense? “
And Morpheus replies:
“Then we’ll all be dead tomorrow.”
Then, more importantly, he follows with:
“Now think about the alternative. What if i’m right? What if the prophecy is true? What if the war could be over tomorrow? Isn’t it worth fighting for? Isn’t it worth dying for? “
This scene reminds me of the hope that Bitcoin stands against both a) the tired pessimism most intelligent but well-meaning people display, and (b) the empty nihilism of the rest of humanity.
Bitcoin is a classy, swanky attempt to build a parallel world on a solid foundation, because the alternative, the status quo, is a complete mess.
Bitcoin by no means simply “fixes” everything, but by tying human action to some form of real economic consequences, it damn sure directs individual behavior towards a more “natural” order.
In this way we have a much better chance of not only bringing the world closer to “heaven”, but at least off the road to hell that we are currently on and accelerating it.
If Bitcoin is unsuccessful, much like Morpheus above, we’re largely screwed. Society will regress until all the capital that we have built up in the previous millennia is used up and society collapses, or we live in sterile, technocratic dystopias until the centrally planned system above all breaks, tears apart and collapses – on primitive at this point people like Equality 7-2521 in Ayn Rand’s novella “Anthem” have to reappear to rebuild.
In any case, with or without Bitcoin, the world is a desolate, dark, cold, empty and sterile place where the worst form of parasitic behavior is stimulated and the spirit of progress, diversity and life wiped out under the guise of “equality.” . “
Now think of the alternative.
What if Bitcoin Succeeds?
What if we are right and the organic emergence of healthy money helps transform individual behavior towards morality, lower time preferences, and more eyesight? What if this monetary standard introduced shorter, faster, and more reliable feedback loops for the actions of individuals, businesses, cities, and nations?
What if these improved feedback loops translate into faster corrections to bad decisions, along with duplicating actions that lead to real progress? What if this leads to more accurate value judgments overall, making society wealthier, more moral, and more direct?
What if this new money, fixed in the supply and its rules, made inflation a thing of the past, ushering in an age in which the cost of products, goods and services in step with the increased efficiency and efficiency that we have can produce, sink and? do you deliver?
What if this results in a performance-oriented society in which both social and economic mobility is possible, in which productivity and value creation enable advancement, while waste, poor judgment and parasitism lead to downward movements?
What if, in this way, we can turn society into an organic, dynamic 80/20 distribution, rather than a cancerous, static 99.9 / 0.01 distribution where the poor can never rise, the parasitic elite can never fall and the productive middle has to bear the whole burden?
What if the lack of thoughtless loans from the future, compulsory taxation, and involuntary theft through inflation makes the rulers responsible for their actions? What if it changes the relationship between the government and the ruled to one in which the former is a customer service provider rather than the current status quo of subjects / overlords?
What if Bitcoin heralds the next phase of natural evolution in the human species through its effect on human behavior? What if, through generations of more farsighted, time-saving, and productivity-oriented behavior, we began to bake morality into our DNA and evolve into a more majestic, noble species of people? Homo bitcoinicus maybe?
What if bitcoin is the most important discovery since the fire because it enables us to encode the product of our labor into high fidelity information and either store it forever or transmit it at the speed of light? What if this ability ushered in a new renaissance of collaboration, collaboration and productivity?
What if Bitcoin is our way through the big filter?
Isn’t it worth fighting for? Isn’t it worth dying for it? Isn’t that worth something Life Per?
I really believe in it in my heart.
How many of these “what if?” Are possible? What will the short and long term future look like?
Of course I don’t know. None of us do. We can use first principles, intuition, instinct, and experience to make estimates, but to discover them we must create and build them.
Because of this, free, independent, entrepreneurial, productivity and creation minded people will thrive on a standard in which this behavior is encouraged. In other words: on a Bitcoin standard.
And getting there requires a great deal of trust and hope, because the clarity needed to make accurate value judgments and calculate economic costs is still emerging (Bitcoin).
A creator is the one who creates that which does not yet exist. That is why today’s message is one of hope. We must move forward and create a world that we can be proud of not only to live but also to give to our relatives. We have to hope and hope in the highest sense of the word. In its shadow form, it can be seen as a weakness. Something that is limp, impotent, and just waiting for someone else to come to save or protect you.
The “hope” I speak of is capitalized. In its light it is one of our greatest strengths.
“Hope it is the quintessential human madness, at the same time the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.”
– The architect, “The Matrix Reloaded”
Bitcoin is hope and I would like to take a moment to thank Michael Saylor for pointing this domain to the correct source.
“Bitcoin is hope”
Please don’t waste my or anyone else’s time asking “What if Bitcoin doesn’t work?” Neither pessimism nor nihilism will help.
Spend your time actually creating a new bitcoin standard because even if it delivers a fraction of what I said above, it is a monumental step towards the current alternative; a globalist faux dystopia that mixes slavery, lies, vermin, pods, bondage, serfdom and sterility.
As Eminem said, we have a chance, an opportunity, to take anything we ever wanted. Are we going to capture it or just let it slide?
So come to me Join us on our way to 2022.
Love, Truth and Bitcoin will win! For her got to prevail.
