I invited him to speak at Bitcoin 2012. This was his response:

Thomas Woods, woods@mises.com

Dear <Redacted> (if I may),

I am mortified at how long it's taken me to get back to you. I am getting so much email these days I can't possibly keep on top of it.

While I genuinely appreciate the invitation, I'll have to decline. The whole Bitcoin issue is something I need to read about and give some thought to, and in the near future, with major projects and deadlines all over the place, I won't be in the proper frame of mind to do so.

Cordially,
Tom Woods

I smell fear in him. The fear of making wrong predictions

Spare some bitcoin?

Well, at least that wasn't a no.

That was sort of like a 'Japanese' no, however.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
