Very interesting for those who speak German:

I only skimmed it but it's the worst kind of hit piece. They do everything to make it look and sound bad. They even invent stuff like 'cyber maffiosi made a lot of money off the flash crash'. Conclusion is: it is made by hackers, it is only used for illegal stuff and will be made illegal soon. Hackers being used in the classic media sense of evil masterminds out to destroy everything, of course.

Germany controls the Euro.  If Bitcoin is not violently throttled, it has the capacity to destroy the Euro.
This, coupled with German's natural love of authority, means that mainstream German society will resist Bitcoin along with Australians etc.

No, it doesn't.  Germans are the taxpayer of last resort, however.

Quote

That's not much of a unique claim on the part of Bitcoin.  Even the Euro has the capacity to destroy the Euro.  From my own perspectives, the breakup of the European Economic Union (and thus the Euro as such) was already baked into the cards before Greece was a member of the EEU.  It's inherently unstable, much more so than even the normal fiat currency system would be.  Disparities between nations and their working cultures make political events as we have been witnessing of late a certainty eventually.

Quote

Ah, I see.  This was a joke!

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."
