I don't know if this is something true but my opinion is yes. I saw that video several months ago and they keep updating their websites. If true, they will crap their pants when they will learn about bitcoin  Grin

I don't think bitcoin wants anything.  It is a protocol and some software, not a conscious being.  I don't think you can speak for the entire community either, although I do think most here would agree that it is bad.

This is bullshit. Nowhere it seems like a parody. Did you laugh while watching this? I certainly didn't! And why there is a website that is always updated for such a fucking boring joke?

I think it's a boringly crafted strawman/bogeyman designed to appeal to conspiracy-theory-susceptibles.

edit: if the quote from BCB is legit, then it was an interesting idea... but unfortunately it seems that parodying conspiracy-types is like parodying creationists. No matter how hard you try to parody - it's indistinguishable from the real nutbaggery.

What you don't realize is that Bitcoin has been created and sponsored by Illumicorp all along. It's quite obviously the official NWO currency.

That was actually a pretty well made video. The writing hits on everything conspiracy theorists want to hear, pretty much bringing together a bunch of ideas into one cohesive organization. What I'm more impressed by is the level of attention to the design of the video. Everything works together perfectly to create the atmosphere of secrecy, professionalism, and coherence. The quiet, slow, almost atonal music goes well with the dark but empty set, and the Illumicorp logo looks like a standard company logo while still maintaining some core ideas. The triangular shape shows the distribution of classes in their distinct layers, with the top layer having an orange circle seemingly covered with blinds. The orange reminds me most of a sunrise/sunset with the light coming through a thick atmosphere. Still, the "sun" is covered with black stripes to maintain the idea of being a secret sunrise which only the few at the top of the triangle know about. Clever design.

The best part is definitely the actor. He's an older man in a black suit, looking about the age to be peaking out in his business career as a CEO. He smiles welcomingly when talking about how great the future will be, but then manages to work in a little bit of "evil overlord" smile when he mentions murder as a method of control. He doesn't flinch when bringing up the absurd idea of controlling the weather, instead sounding exactly like a large company's announcement of a new product. His character encapsulates so many of the ideas behind these NWO-Illuminati-ConspiracyStuff ideas.

Compared to most of the other "Here's the real truth" blogs written by one guy nobody knows, with old fashioned hit counters and walls of text that randomly get bolded to show how important these ideas truly are, this video is amazingly well done.

I'm sure they could have used your vast media empire/political constituency/giant pile of money/powerful military forces...

This was hilarious. Good to see parody done well.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Very well written.  You should be a reviewer!  Start a more general interest blog and write brief reviews about bitcoin sites/services.  Charts/exchanges and other sites etc.  Might be helpful for all the n00bs trying to figure out the world of bit coin.  I'd read it.  Just a thought. We could use some additional pr that isn't so techno-geek centric.
