Simple question.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

You didn't disappoint me. Question modified.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

What do you ask for? Are you asking at all?

Faith in a higher power.

Higher power, absolutely

Religion, only with several truckloads of salt and a serious cross-cultural comparison

Well, first live enables it all. How about stopping there?
Enabling is slightly different from forcing. Choice is an important part here.
Choice enables but should it be therefore restricted?

I have faith SHA256 will be worthless for bitcoin within 3 decades, likely 2.  I also have faith we will transition away from it before this point and the bitcoin blockchain will still be secure.

I have faith that Bitcoin will not survive in space because it takes too long to send block data between Earth and Mars (between 4 and 21 minutes), but I have faith we'll figure something out, and that Gavin is already on top of that serious and urgent problem  Grin

Mining would simply be infeasible to bootstrap on Mars.  Martians could still broadcast their transactions back to Earth, but miners would just have their blocks rejected unless they could outrun all the miners on Earth.  Maybe as more miners get rich and move to Mars, the Earth hashrate will decrease enough that all the miners who have already made it to Mars will be enough to overtake the Earth blockchain.  They could also have a MarsCoin and an exchange with Bitcoin since it takes up to an additional 42 minutes to reach X confirmations (21 minutes to broadcast transaction to earth, 21 minute delay on receiving blocks).  This would help reduce the transmission costs since it takes a lot of power to send data so far.

Of course, all this is moot if we are able to develop faster-than-light communications by manipulating quantum entanglement effects.

religion has a lot of corruption from it's power but it's still a useful resource

There's a lot of misunderstood things in life that could  be attributed to god but can they equally be labelled as natual processes;

i.e. Pray to god for something could be law of attraction rather god... Could be.

For me, religion and atheism seem to fit side by side peacefully no worries with no dualistic thinking of does god exist etc
