I don't know if this belongs in "Press Hits", but I don't know where else to put it.

"We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.

Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks, but pure P2P networks are holding their own."

I think he's going to try to shine BTC in a bad light Tongue  It'd be suspicious if he was making it look like a wonderful thing.

That's not the quite the feeling I was getting from the comic.  What I got was that it is no worse than the banking system and stock market anyways, and the bankers won't be able to extract their pound of flesh for the "privilage" to use your hard earned money.  To me, at least, that sounds neutral to slightly positive, in an everything-is-already-screwing-me-over kind of way.

I must say the three of you are all humor-impaired. It's a joke! It's making fun of ... Never mind. I'm not going to explain it.
