I liked that one.

"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've grown tired of listening to Molyneux.  It's not that I don't agree with his point of view, but he always seems so negative.  It's time to quit complaining and start taking an active role in smashing the state: black markets, Wikileaks, exploiting inherent weaknesses in bureaucracies, etc.

Molyneux ... he always seems so negative.

...And as a result he attracts a band of largely-unhappy followers. It's a real pity, because he's highly intelligent and articulate. If Molyneux could take a cue from Harry Browne's optimistic writing in "How I found freedom in an unfree world", his slice of the voluntarist movement would be much more fun.

Thanks for that.  Just read the introduction chapter and I like it.  I like when he says, for instance :

Quote
There must be a way to be free without having to wish for a miracle. It must be a way by which an individual can change things without having to rally the rest of the world to his side.

You should email that to him.  He is human and reads his emails.  He's replied to mine a couple of times.

You can also email him a link to this thread, in case he doesn't know about bitcoin yet Smiley

Stefen Molyneux expressed a lack of interest in accepting Bitcoin donations in favor of PayPal donations.  If you consider it, it's quite conflicting considering his agenda.

It could also be that he doesn't understand bitcoin.

It's that. One person can't be expected to know everything. He knows the stuff he specializes in. He's not even an open source guy. It's Windows for him.

But I don't criticize someone for a lack of knowledge. If he understood open source, and if he understood bitcoin, I'm sure he'd approve of them.

Harry Browne died in 2006. He published "How I found freedom in an unfree world" in 1973.

I emailed him link and summary of few comments from this thread to Stefan for him to consider.  However, since he is not bitcoin-inclined, I think it may be useful for someone bitcoin-inclined to assist him with using bitcoins since he may be too busy to establish acceptance of bitcoin on his own efforts.  However, it may be necessary for someone that is friend or family of his to introduce it to him before he shows such acceptance or willingness.

One email should be enough.  Why should we make so much efforts in order to give money to someone ?

This guy is far from stupid.   He's perfectly capable of understanding what bitcoin is and how it works.  If he's not, then he's not so smart and I don't care about this guy, nor am I willing to give him anything.

It's not about smart or stupid, it's about getting heard above the 10,000 other things that are clamouring for his attention.

He has a huge following, many of whom would be very interested in Bitcoin. I'll post something in their forum.

See http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=804.0 where there was quite a bit of effort

We have not even saturated the whole libertarian movement with bitcoin. Surely, we can do better than this.

I doubt whether even 1% of libertarians have heard of Bitcoin.

It may be counterintuitive but I've found that a lot of libertarians are pretty closed-minded. They worship gold and silver like a regular person worships government and when you challenge their beliefs they immediately go on the defensive. I guess it's part of human physiology, we prefer trading one god for another rather than destroying him completely from our minds.
