There is absolutely nothing stopping people from going about and researching Bitcoin themselves and learning about it, we can't be held responsible for peoples laziness or incompetence, I have another theory regarding Bitcoins slow adoption rate and part of the problem is that Bitcoin is trying to undo over a century of yes, I'm going to be blunt here, social engineering and brainwashing. We have been brought up with very little knowledge on how global economics and currencies actually work and that has been a deliberate and systematic process attempted by our governments to keep us ignorant.

Can't have the unwashed peasants understanding how their money works now can we? They'd revolt and bring down the central bankers early on, this is also a reason why many central banks are refusing to define Bitcoin as private money because that would nullify what they have been teaching the public for years, that their paper currency is the only true form of money, why do you think they keep trying to say Gold/Silver are commodities that can be bartered? It's the same situation.

Nice post there, I have missed it earlier. You're definitely right, most of the population is being controlled, they are 'sheep'. People don't think about these things and just live their lives (most of them). From the moment on that I've read about Bitcoin, I knew that this was going to be something one day. The banks can't let their system die off that easily either.

noobs think that they can get a university degree's worth, a college diploma's worth and a highschool certificates worth of bitcoin information all wrapped up in a nice little bow and presented in no more then 3 paragraphs.

they need to realise that bitcoin is not just a google wallet.

bitcoin is a whole economy. with industry, investments, retailers, services. and lets not forget 1000's of lines of code.

i now personally tell people that directly ask me about bitcoin. that it is its own country, with its own industry, its own payment, its own currency, its own 'race' whereby the country is called: the internet.

that anything that they want to do and have done with fiat can be done with bitcoin. and bitcoin is open up to any new idea's that fiat laws prevent.

that if they really want to know more then how to open a wallet and send a transaction. then they really need to put in the time and research the sector they wish to get involved in.

bitcoin is far far far past just being a wallet.
