I will not engage in this discussion on this thread.

Yet that discussion is central to your original assumption. Bitcoins aren't enforced by anyone. There is no government telling you to pay taxes with Bitcoins and making sure those taxes are payed. Every one using Bitcoin endorsed it willingly, the same as everyone using gold or silver did.

Now, can I opt not to participate in your RBE? I mean, since you're resource based, that I own some resources and you people do not respect private property, how am I not to participate in your system if I wish not to? If i can't extract myself and my ressources at will from your system, then you are enforcing it on me. If I can leave but I have to let you keep my wealth, then you are stealing it from me.

You people need a reality check. Any rule is by definition enforced.
