  • Should we progressives work harder on cultivating a better sense of humor?

    I can sort of understand why many right wingers find us humorless. Yes, we have our comedians, e.g., Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, Al Franken, Samantha Bee, Jon Stewart, but a lot of progressives in academia and politics can be completely humorless. I don't know. Is it just me or do we come across this way.

  • What are your opinions on bitcoin?

    Best answer: It's GREAT for being in control of your own money. For NOT having to pay a dime to greedy grasping bankers who need eye watering bonuses and high charges to just function, but demand socialist style government guaranteed bailouts/ bailins the minute their greed brings about their own downfall. It's one way... show more
    Best answer: It's GREAT for being in control of your own money.
    For NOT having to pay a dime to greedy grasping bankers who need eye watering bonuses and high charges to just function, but demand socialist style government guaranteed bailouts/ bailins the minute their greed brings about their own downfall.

    It's one way of keeping your money OUT of government's hands. You are on a equal footing with billionaires, who use countless tricks to exempt the wealth from government's grasp.

    Countries sanctioned and stifled by the West cohorts can use bitcoin to trade.

    Bankers hate bitcoin. Since bitcoin bypasses them. No high charges. No proclaiming themselves masters of the universe. No demanding their cut!

    All transactions are secret. Although blockchain maintains the history of each and every transaction.

    Governments hate it. Whine it shields proceeds of crime, confers anonymity. But that's rich, since when did wall street go to prison for the mess it wilfully caused in 2007-8? And still Than only finds have been dished out. High real estate is the proceeds of illgotten loot hidden in plain site.

    Initially politicians spurned bitcoin, but than were happy to accept bitcoin to find their campaigns.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47340.htm "It is my view that bitcoin is the beneficiary of this rigging of the prices of gold and fiat currencies.
    Bitcoin cannot increase in supply, and bitcoins are not priced in future markets that permit naked shorts. "


    https://www.counterpunch.org/2015/12/09/searching-for-satoshi-nakamoto-and-hunting-bitcoin/
    "Then come an assortment of figures who feel that such virtual currencies are the puffery of the moment, and will never reach wide circulation. Nothing will replace solid, acceptable currencies. Such dreary views come from central bankers and monetary fund directors who have to justify their continued relevance. The scepticism of Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund and Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan is far more telling than they let on.

    Corruption breeds alternatives. Virtual currencies, like any innovation, come with their problems, but they also come with a radical assortment of means to conduct transactions between citizens. A currency mined algorithmically, without a central bank or backing assets, smacks of revolution."

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/09/25/jpmorgan-chase-is-right-to-fear-cryptocurrency/ "Cryptocurrencies run on blockchains, “distributed ledgers” without central authorities. Dimon prefers fiat currencies, which are created by governments, managed by central banks, and funneled through institutions like his, legally privileged choke points taking generous rake-offs from wealth created by others but forced to pass through them.

    Neither crypto nor fiat currencies are backed by physical commodities like gold or silver, but the resemblance ends there. Crypto is backed by the work of maintaining its ledgers, called by the imaginative name “mining.” Fiat currency is backed only by your trust in the governments (and the Jamie Dimons) of the world.

    “Creating money out of thin air without government backing is very different from money with government backing,” he says. He’s right. Money with government backing pays Jamie Dimon. Cryptocurrency threatens his business, his paycheck and his way of life. "

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2013/11/15/the-takedown-of-the-silk-road-drug-market/ "Anonymous online markets offer unlimited possibilities for entrepreneurs of all trades. They encourage investment in alternative currencies. They encourage people to take their money out of an economy based entirely in violence and transition it to one which stresses cooperation and individuality. Imagine a world free from government and you’ve imagined what the darknet and Bitcoin markets can bring us. "

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/19/central-bank-digital-currencies-a-revolution-in-banking/
    "Several central banks, including the Bank of England, the People’s Bank of China, the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve, are exploring the concept of issuing their own digital currencies, using the blockchain technology developed for Bitcoin. Skeptical commentators suspect that their primary goal is to eliminate cash, setting us up for negative interest rates (we pay the bank to hold our deposits rather than the reverse).

    Money recorded on a blockchain is stored in the “digital wallet” of the bearer, as safe from confiscation as cash in a physical wallet. It cannot be borrowed, manipulated, or speculated with by third parties any more than physical dollars can be. The money remains under the owner’s sole control until transferred to someone else, and that transfer is anonymous."

    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2017/12/money-yes-talking-bitcoin.html "For those who don’t know the situation in Venezuela, its government has destroyed the value of the nation’s currency, the bolivar, which traded at roughly 10 to 1 US dollar as recently as late 2012, when bitcoin was roughly $10.

    The black market exchange is now over 98,000 bolivars to the US dollar, and one bitcoin is now worth over 1 billion bolivars. Clearly, bitcoin has acted as a store of value. The resident of Venezuela who traded 100 bolivars for $10 and traded the $10 for one bitcoin now has 1 billion bolivars or $15,000 US dollars. "

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/is-bitcoin-a-reaction-to-us-dollar-hegemony/5626364 "What is happening in the cryptocurrency markets in not only occurring in parallel with the spread of the Internet, smartphones and the increasing ability to operate in the digital world, but is also seen as a safe haven from centralized financial regulators and central banks; in other words, from the dollar and fiat currencies in general. Whether bitcoin will prove to be a wise long-term investment is yet to be seen, but the concept of cryptocurrencies is here to stay. The technology behind the idea, the blockchain, is a definitive model for decentralized economic transactions without any intermediary that can manipulate and distort the market at will. It is the antidote to the debt virus that is killing our society and spreading chaos around the world. "
