I'm not particularly surprised by the cable, although some of you may find it informative. What I find interesting are the implications of the loss of control of finance and IP to centralized power. Bitcoin/Namecoin present major obstacles to corporate interests who would prefer to control all conduits of creating, distributing and profiting from all different types of IP. "Finance" is the only real remaining power center in the US, and it relies on IP (media/propaganda) on a fundamental level. This probably explains why the state department is being used to bully countries like Sweden with "super 301."

To an unprecedented degree, bitcoin/namecoin unlock the corporate deathgrip on information. I am sure that "finance" has recognized distributed currencies as lethal threats to its existence. The attacks will be fast and furious. In particular, beware the threat of infiltration and its potentially paralyzing effect on organization and progress. Don't trust; only build infrastructure that doesn't require trust.

Maybe now people will understand what I meant by that.
