Since there are no violently funded States to squander wealth in the future, global productivity in my time is so incredibly high that most people only work a few hours a week.  All of humanities energies are directed into private markets that serve consumer interests.  For example, since there are no shipyards building aircraft carriers for State governments, those same ship yards are now building cruise liners for the public.  With the State out of the way, people were forced once again to only produce things that individual consumers actually desire.  Obviously it goes without saying that there are no wars or military dictatorships since they can’t exist without the ability to steal wealth from the public.

Another great non-socialist anarchy fantasy fiction production.

I like how it was set in the future and not based on anything in the real world. Must take a great imagination to dream up something like that. It reminded me of star wars, except without the wars.

But if I had to judge, I think light-sabers more likely than this warless Society ruled by greed and fear.

I need a job!!!!

Those working only a few hours a week will be outcompeted by those working more hours a week, unless there is coercive pressure preventing the same from happening. For eg. Look at the finance industry, a bunch of workaholics heading towards burnout. Many of them could have chosen a lower pay and a more relaxed schedule.

I'm not favouring coercive redistribution or coercive laws to prevent that from happening. I'm just saying that there is a higher probability of the 30 year old burnt out retiree becoming a more common stereotype compared to the 4 hour work week in an anarcho capitalistic scenario.

People need 10000 hours to achieve expertise, according to Gladwell. That would mean 50 years in a 4 hour work week and 5 years in a 40 hour work week scenario.

Consider yourself as an employer or a consumer. Wouldn't you take the best deal offered? Young experts or old guys who will become experts in the next 10 years?

There would be competition among employers, too.

You're standing on a flagstone running with blood, alone and so very lonely because you can't choose but you had to

You know, Bitcoin is so beautiful to me.

Before Bitcoins I had this perpetual sinking feeling in my stomach knowing what was going to happen with the dollar but not being able to see any possible way for the rational half of society to avoid it.

I see a light at the end of the tunnel with these coins.

It's funny how electronic bits can translate into emotional joy.

Yeah, I see a lot of hope for the future now that we have a currency that neither can be inflated, nor legislated away.

BitCoin is our savior.  Satoshi Nakamoto is a saint.

"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."
