This is a key quote to consider when thinking about cryptocurrencies. And I recommend reading this book, as it offers key insights about what is happening right now. Pay attention. ‼️
The goal of fascism is to keep control of capital and money with private interests and industry, thus enabling that sector to gain control of, subjugate, and even eliminate the state.

Cryptocurrencies serve fascist aims.
Anybody who tells you differently is a fool, a liar, or both. Stand strong, we will be dealing with this issue daily for a long time.
It sounds populist and egalitarian to talk about “giving the people control of the money,’ until you realize that most wealth, and thus control and power, belongs to the 1%. It is a mirage, and a trick.
The people and corporations enabled by “privatized money” can then wield the power of the state to keep a boot on the neck of anyone standing in their way.

Because ‘people’ no longer have power — only money has power.
“The status quo has problems, so let’s try something new.” A cry as old as, and ever-present when people are trying to avoid the hard work of governance and democracy.

It’s a total pain in the ass; there is no shortcut or savior.
One of the original sh*tcoins……
Go listen in on any crypto Twitter Space and you will hear a sense of “equality” but above all, pride in belonging to a community of “pioneers.” This is the populist urge that takes hold when states fail at governance. Governance matters.
Again, governance is hard. A republic, if you can keep it, etc, etc…
This presents an alternative to the communist state, where private property is eliminated; in fascism, private ownership is thus preserved, and corporate power merges with that of the state.

The Human Rights Foundation @HRF is being used to advance a plan to crash the global economy and drive assets into cryptocurrencies.

This is a pump and dump on a global scale, hiding behind “human rights” with positions functionally indistinguishable from the John Birch Society.
Alex Gladstein, the @HRF’s Chief Strategy Officer, has become increasingly visible in recent weeks, like an internet whack-a-mole, offering to debate anyone who critiques cryptocurrency.

He argues that crypto helps individuals subvert dictators, a somewhat valid claim. However…
He also asserts that fact means it also should be brought into widespread use in pluralistic democracies with advanced monetary systems, such as the US and EU.

This is a fascist position. To understand that, one needs to go back to the 1930’s…

Bottom line: Peter Thiel and Elon Musk have allied with Putin and oil/gas interests to try to undermine the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, in a fascist bid to destroy the US and EU administrative states.

Pick a side.
This intel assessment was developed early this year. Sharing now publicly because it’s becoming a more acute situation.
The corollary to this is that oil/gas interests see undermining states as their surest path towards avoiding both regulation and competition from renewables.

What percentage of crypto enthusiasts understand their views are well-aligned with those of the John Birch Society, the World Anti-Communist League, the Moonies, and the Council for National Policy?
What percentage of crypto enthusiasts understand that the Council for National Policy planned and executed the January 6th insurrection?
What percentage of crypto enthusiasts are sympathetic to the goals of the January 6th insurrectionists?

These folks intend to try to bribe the Smithsonian into shilling libertarianism for them. GTFOH with that — go put it in the Museum of the Bible, or Koch Industries HQ, or Palantir if that’s your intention.…
These folks say their DAO is “governed by the people,” by which they mean gimps in the libertarian cult scheme. Conflating “demos” with “participants in our dumb scheme” is their favorite logical fallacy, and everyone should call it out 100% of the time.
The only way these schemes can ever be “democratic” is if they are made universal, and in a democracy that has to be done with a vote.

Otherwise, what you have is a private club, a cult, a pyramid scheme and a project. That’s anti-democratic and undermines democratic goals.
