So?

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

dude, nobody is going to out themselves like this

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

As far as I can thrown them.

Help me out: is that a yes or a no? No-one (sane) trusts anyone (let a lone some vague entity) unconditionally.

(O wait, I also trust them to royally fuck up.)

Well trust is a vague term

So lets go through the list (I'm an American btw)...


Do I trust my government to do what it promises? Nope...

Do I trust my government to be transparent on non-national-security issues? Nope...

Do I trust my government to place individual rights and freedoms over money? Nope...

Do I trust my governments various parties to not sell out to corporations and media organizations? Nope...

Do I trust my government to give us factual information on the wars we are involved in (such as # of civilian casualties on both sides)? Nope...



I think ima vote no...

I trust my government to make poor decisions based on the whims of the corporations and special interest groups that pay for elected officials to get into office.

I trust my government to make the rich wealthier at the expense of (and on the backs of) the working class and the poor.

I trust the government to sway the public to vote against their best interests.

I trust the government quite a bit...
