It wouldn't actually surprise me if he did at this point. Atlas has woven himself a worldview that makes him feel special. That he's a part of this great big thing with bitcoins, ushering in the future with his brilliant ideas. That it obviously isn't working and all his ideas fail miserably isn't a flaw of bitcoin or himself, so it must be something else.
No, I have not chosen my world view in the name of any particular feeling. I don't feel grand nor superior to anything in this world. I don't even find myself having the need to blame anything nor any faults of my own to place upon others and the world itself. The concepts you have placed upon me are completely foreign to me, if anything.
So far he's blamed SA, the government and masons.
I don't recall blaming you gentlemen for anything. You're being your lovely selves and I couldn't ask for anything more. Yes, I blame government and its tyrannical benefactors for its direct agression against the people but that is another argument for another time. The fact is if I fail and somehow feel shame in said failure, I would not see any value to be gained by blaming the entire incident on another entity. Resentment and disdain have never been traits of mine if that is not clear already.
In most cases, I have only had the poor habit of blaming myself in absolute shame for the terrible things that happen to people and myself.
He's so invested in his security blanket that he cannot back down on any part of it or it will all come crumbing down around his feet and he will be left with only the brutal reality of his own pathetic stupidity and the parade of failures he has left behind him.
Yes, yes your psycho-analysis is so very accurate. There is no way I could live in a world that is not subject to an international banking cartel for it would mean my fringe point-of-view would be invalid and thus make me feel inferior. Oh how I would weep. I would no longer feel special. It's not like I actually care about the people of this world or anything. It's not like I feel the poverty and war that aggresses against the human species could be helped if we had a more decentralized political system. Yes, it's actually because I am a smug barely self-aware hipster. The happiness that would exist in a free society would be nothing to me. Haha.
Honestly, what do you think I live for? I am not even insulted. I'm just astonished by your perception.
He will have to face that bitcoins are a fool's dream. That he is not the next captain of industry. That his 'great ideas' are trite and unworkable.
We'll know the fate of Bitcoin all in good time. I'll leave that contention up to science. Whether my ideas are great or workable is of no relevance to me. The real pleasure comes from me figuring that out on my own. After seeing your previous fallible contentions, the authority of your word comes into question; your wisdom cannot decipher whether my ideas are truly workable or not.
And the fact that he is not special.
What is "special" again? The fact is I hold a valuable spot in a lot of people's lives. The degree of my value isn't relevant. I am happy with my life and others are glad I am here. That's special enough to me. Heh.
So it only remains to be seen who he blames next.
Again, I've never played the blame game. I find it lacking in value.
