Bitcoin doesn't discriminate, it follows only the laws of math and the guidelines given to it by the network, and it is passively open to the entire world, making it potentially one of the best debt consolidation utilities in our century. That's all it is though. It takes money to move money and the only way it could assist in decreasing poverty is by increasing opportunity.
Other than that, Bitcoin is not the cure for cancer, governments, or reptillian congressmen. Sorry.
I totally agree with you, thanks mate. This one is the best answer to the question.
