I'd like to add one more thing into this post, as to police brutality. This was a 'harmless beanbag round'

Beanbag rounds aren't supposed to be harmless.  They are non-lethal.

I think a wound something like that on the neck has a fair chance of being lethal.

Or between the eyes.

Not to mention the weaponized tear gas being used. It can cause the need for hospitalization. I find it funny, because these protests make sense, and are peaceful and unarmed, yet the Tea Party protests are people carrying loaded guns and nothing happens. The government has a bit of a problem with anyone that might make a difference.

Funny though, i've just been discussing with an occupy group and guess what their #2 item was...

"reforming the monetary system",

yet if you bring up bitcoin they all group up and form a group that looks an awfull lot like this

Bitcoin is a great way to decentralize an economy, but I don't really think that cryptocurrencies are 'old' enough to become a country's economy.

Bitcoin is a great way to decentralize an economy, but I don't really think that cryptocurrencies are 'old' enough to become a country's economy.

Ofcourse, it's new, it's scary.
But i'm just very suprised that they aren't even 'open minded' (as they claim to be) to a brilliant concept.
Yet, they try to think of their own kind of money, probably gets down to trading classic goods and resources...

This was one of the few groups i really expected to jump on bitcoin eventually, maybe not initially, but in a few weeks or so.

Most of the OWS do not match with Bitcoiners... Politically speaking that is... If they only knew how much they really have in common...

That. They don't understand what they're doing, or don't know what to do. The real fight is in here, trying to push Bitcoin. But these people just don't see it, and think we are their enemies.

I've said this in other threads, but any of the Anonymous (the hacktivist group) funding is done through BTC.

A bit offtopic, but I recommend not using "the ... group" in the case of Anonymous. The point is that it's a swarm, anyone can join or leave or come back at any time. People fundraising for "the" group usually just represent a very tiny branch of the whole... thing, or whatever it is. Any real "anon" is unlikely to ever accept any kind of leadership. However, he'll probably be positively amused that someone was able to raise funds using the name.

This class war has been raging for centuries and there is finally a financial weapon that will one day turn the tide. Stanley Kubrick would have been proud of the invention of Bitcoin.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
