So, what's the alternative to capitalism in your book? Cause I don't see anything wrong with it. It's the only system, if unobstructed, that self-regulates. Everything else is artificially steered by humans, humans that are inherently incapable of seeing the bigger picture of all the interactions in a system as complex as our planet. And so far I haven't even read about anything that comes even remotely close to capitalism.

Democracy on the other hand... is just the opposite extreme of authoritarian regimes and ultimately not much different.

Capitalism self-regulates just fine in some cases, like it will determine the number of barbershops in a town. But there are other cases: bank runs, monopolies, etc.
Bank runs are only a problem because banks lend out 50 times more than they have.

twitter is intermittently broken, so meanwhile, on capitalism:

Conclusion

Bitcoin’s main benefit to society can be understood as bringing back sound money. Sound money allows for capital accumulation which allows for investment, leading to better goods and services for less effort. This, in turn, benefits all of civilization. We’re not there yet, but this is the main value proposition.

Contrast this to our society which is based on fiat money and you can see the difference. Instead of a large number of rent seekers, we instead get entrepreneurs. Instead of people playing zero sum games, we get innovations that add to the pie.

In short, Bitcoin works because Bitcoin is sound money. And sound money changes everything. Bitcoin will change the role of government, how people relate to one another, how people will perceive the future, how everyone will plan, etc. Bitcoin is nothing less than a complete upheaval of the current fiat system with large second and third order effects that incentivize building instead of rent-seeking.

Welcome to the revolution.

Not to mention the landfill mountain of debt money fueled garbage products.

It is impossible to make a profit manufacturing items of real quality in this environment.  When the money is meaningless, and constantly devaluing, people will buy anything.

The ecological consequences of the fiat system have been profound, it can't end soon enough.

It's just an example of an unstable system. There are plenty of such examples, aside from banks. Sometimes a small problem for a company might create a self-fulfilling prophecy, and lead to bigger and bigger problems.

And if you complain about migrants on facebook or twitter, you go to jail. At least in germany and england, same pattern everywhere, just a matter of degrees.

Slight exaggeration. If true, the 51.9% of UK population who voted for Brexit primarily due to immigration concerns would be in jail.  You can complain about migrants, it's racism which is illegal and rightly so.

In other news....it's a sea of green in cryptoland  Grin

Racism is illegal? Despite our problems, I'm often glad I live in America, where at least we have truly free speech.

Localbitcoins went all kyc/aml.
At least they tell you about the info retention. Other firms, not so much.
afaiac, they were always mitm-bait.
The twitterati are recommending hodlhodl and bisq now instead.
But otc for the win, it's the only way to be sure.

meh, edge cases

In almost every industry the quality of even the very finest examples are being dragged down by the lowest common denominator.

$700 Hilti drill has plastic gears

No dial indicators currently being manufactured to historical standards

Antique machine tools are being rebuilt for industry as machines of similar quality can not be procured at any price.

I believe the debt money is the primary cause of our state of industrial decline.




also...Apple?, quality hardware?  really Bob?

Doesn't change that it influences how long you go to jail for any number of crimes. Not to mention that people lose their jobs over it, even when nothing illegal has been done.

Reality matters, not ideas that are not enforced.

Another example. Apple. They are making money hand-over-fist putting out quality hardware.
They primarily sell a lifestyle, an idea. A feeling of belonging to a group. And nothing wrong with that, but let's be realistic about it.

Good mention from IMF head and a praise to Sharia Law possible catalyst to recent price action? Or the tax day theory?

Interesting thing about the IMF's recent support of blockchain is that the head of the IMF is advised by a french libertarian, Gaspard Koenig. Gaspard just recently joined Blue Frontiers as an adviser and has been a big supporter of seasteading since he first heard about it.

It has nothing to do with capitalism.

Why not? Stable, self-correcting systems (negative feedback) are part of capitalism. But unstable (positive feedback) systems exist within capitalism just as well.

I don't know who this is but I think you have to consider the possibility that he's just in it for the dancing girls.

It looks like things will get ugly Bitcoin is currently on its 2 hoursly chart it is forming a Head and Shoulders and we are currently completing the right shoulder. After several failed attempt to go back up above 8,500$ or more we might be going back down below 7,000$ if BTC will not break this formation we need to think of shorting is now until it is up above 8,000$. Volume is also decreasing which is an indicator that the market is still bearish on Bitcoin. MACD also formed a bearish divergence which signifies a momentum going down.
