Yeah he has done some dodgy shit in the past, however the way that NZ police got bent over by the FBI to raid him illegally is considerably funny haha

I fail to see the funniness in the world bending to US pressure.

I hope he remembers to encrypt his emails this time, instead of using US servers and asking his employees where he can find the latest pie-rat DVDrip in cleartext

Are you saying that that is what they are trying to extradite Dotcom on?  Something that probably 50% of the internet using public is guilty of themselves?  If so, it's small wonder that the US is in no hurry to produce their evidence of his evildoing and the extradition is dragging on.

OTOH, it would hardly be the first time that someone was singled out for a petty indiscretion and subject to absurd hardship for political reasons.  Some people commit suicide like Aaron Swartz and some people stand and fight back like Kim Dotcom.

Bringing things back to monetary science terms, fiat is backed by force of law (in my definition of it.)  And the system of laws and justice is falling apart insofar as it is increasingly working well for certain groups and increasingly poorly for others.  That is why I have little faith in the ability of our modern financial systems to survive.  The backing is simply falling apart.   This in turn has me especially interested in alternative which are backed by other things such as mathematics and quantum electrodynamics.

Basically that is their "proof", they seized megauploads US servers and inside were a bunch of juicy employee emails where they discussed where to find pirate uploaded movies and music instead of taking them down. It is of course, pretty flimsy which leads me to believe they simply raided megaupload out of existence solely on the insistence of movie/music industry lobbyists and don't really have any plans to actually extradite him and are instead playing the delaying game, where a country with endless resources can keep throwing BS charges and delaying court proceedings until you give up because all your money went to lawyers.

If megaupload made so much money why aren't they copying his business model instead of trying to put him in jail. Instead we get terrible geo-IP restricted videos riddled with forced ads which is the industry answer to piracy. It's like when South Park decided to stream their own episodes for free to combat piracy, but with so many greedy middlemen and cable companies it's impossible if you're in Canada or somewhere else to watch the episodes without jumping through hoops so people still pirate them, because it's easier.

I hope that from here forward the Kiwi's can find the testosterone needed to tell the media corporate (and their US state-level hired muscle) where to stick it.  It would go some distance toward healing the wound of being outed as the pathetic lick-spittle.

I dearly hope that one day nation-states such as Iceland, Ecuador, and (hopefully) New Zealand are paid back with more than simply a nod of respect for their willingness to stand up to power.  It seems not outside the realm of possibility in an increasing globalized world where capital flows can be at least in some part influenced by individuals.

---

By happenstance, I find myself in need of sending funds to a mom-n-pop class manufacturer in New Zealand at this time.  What an incredible hassle!

It is an ironic state of affairs that I prefer to use my credit card to in many transactions which are possible using Bitcoin because the Bitcoin ecosystem is so rife with shady flakes.  Standard businesses who I trust and would love to use Bitcoin to patronize (because of the sad state of our heavily controlled and exploited mainstream payment methods) have never heard of the Bitcoin solution.
