Lets summarize some of these concepts:
- Bitcoin will allow "fair" trade since it is not "manipulated" against "the small guy".
Whilst the underlaying payment system in Bitcoin can not be centrally regulated or adjusted, the result is to an extend quite the contrary. Bitcoin is already showing that it will be an open and unregulated object of speculation, whilst this is good for the valueation, this will not benefit people who "cant make it now" to all of a sudden "make it" just due to bitcoin.
Totally open and unregulated systems are strictly "survival of the fittest" in its context and favour the fittest exactly because they treat everyone equally.
The idea that free markets are 'survival of the fittest' is a myth. Free markets prevent the strong from crushing the weak. Almost all interventions in the economy by the government are done at the behest of market leaders, in order to reduce the number of competitors.
Those most helped by the free market are precisely those who are not already established in an industry and thus, with greater regulations, face higher regulatory compliance costs when they want to enter and those with the least financial means to buy political influence and get favorable regulations passed.
- Bitcoin is great because it suddenly allows X Y Z
Whilst i agree that legislation in many places of the world goes over the top in punishing consumption of certain substances, there is valid reason for alot of things "not being allowed" by social consent, i.e. child pornography or other things. Bitcoin is like cash, and it should be treated like it. Buying drugs and snorting coke or buying child pornography anonymously isnt the greatest aspect about cash, so stop acting like its the greatest thing Bitcoin has to offer.
Buying drugs and buying child pornography are incomparable. One involves making a personal decision that will cause self-harm, and another contributes to an innocent party being harmed. Any way, I agree that buying drugs isn't the greatest aspect of the currency. It's just one area where it will have an advantage to traditional currencies.
