"What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty".

We Americans are happy paying taxes for public services.

That's changing.

For the time being (and over the last few years) I've answered this question as :

Socially Liberal and Fiscally Conservative

Seeing how most people can't tell the difference between libs and cons generationally for the last 200 years though.... I figure everyone is going to read that how they want to no matter how its stated.

So the dumbed down version...

"Get off my property and don't tell me what I can and can't do with that which is mine."

Property in this case being monetary in nature, and the social aspect of that position I suppose would be the openeness that is the bitcoin community.

So you are basically an Americanized classical liberal? Or that is at least how it sounds Tongue

Does anybody know of a good page that displays a detailed description of the economics of Bitcoin? I know a contributor to Maybe with some prodding and the proper research materials, he could give an Austrian analysis.

What is your political/ideological affiliation, and how do you feel it has affected your involvement with Bitcoin?
