So are you implying that they maybe created both those things with known holes in them so people who are planning to do illegal stuff rely on them and can be surveilled by those agencies even better? Ha, that totally sounds like a conspiracy theory Cheesy Nah, I don't really believe that!

I am not implying anything, just stating the facts. No conspiracy theory here, as to me, like you, it does not make sense.

TOR was created by the Navy with the intention of being used by the government. It needed other people to run and use it in order for the government to be able to use it securely. TOR is not perfect, however neither is any other "method" of privacy.

Well, that makes sense. TOR is not perfect, but prior to the existence of TOR people already knew how to be private. There is now another layer added.

If all our money circulates around on the Blockchain simply turn if off and all our money is gone and the Government takes controll over humanity and turns us all into Slaves....

they can't really turn it off. they could forcibly gain control of one of the mining pools/build a bunch of ASICS and do a 51% attack but everyone could just switch to an alt-coin that's designed to be more 51% attack resistant

also they wouldn't wanna bring it down yet because...

The other thing is if the CIA or the government is behind it, they for sure push it skyhigh, so is this now a good time to Invest in Bitcoin or stay far away??

if ross ulbricht gets convicted, they now have 100,000 btc to offload. they aren't gonna wanna offload it at ten dollars a bitcoin...

And besides the evil attentions intentions of the US Government to enslave us all and sell us as work slaves to Planet Crypto,

we're already enslaved. you can't call it intent if they've successfully carried out the plan.

Quote
does it matter if the government is behind it or not??

no because...

Quote
Would you guys get out of Crypto if it is a fact that the CIA or NSA or anyone of the Alphabet boys is behind it??

alternatives like BitShares exist.

I will shit my pants if that larimer guy turns out to be CIA.

Hmmmm.... that's probably more reason to get into it.

1. I'm still anonymous.
2. I'm going to get rich.

I think that prior to TOR it was very difficult if not impossible to have privacy from a large attacker on the internet. As of when TOR was created the internet was still very new, and a lot of the privacy services did not exist then. You also had many less options to connect to the internet; you were not able to connect via public wifi, at most public places, in a hotel or even via cell phone.

I would not put this past the CIA, NSA, or DOD. What is the greatest threat to the USA today?

The USA is a superpower that's had nuclear bombs more more than half a century.
We really started printing money in the 80's forward, increasing our debt along the way.
Suddenly, in the 1990's this thing called the Internet comes along and connects the entire world.
Now, we have people all over the world learning exactly how these dollars come into existence, and they are questioning why they spend their time chasing the dollars (along with every other world currency).

On the flip side of the Pacific, you have more than 2 billion people suddenly realizing that they can buy things, and they are going to do so by releasing dollars into the market.

Possibly Bitcoin could have been created as a defensive mechanism to prevent world economy from changing too quickly which would not be good for anyone.
