The Dollar Vigilante: "The Anarcho Revolution Has Begun" (Really)Submitted by barracuda_trader on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 06:01
THE ANARCHO REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN
The digital age has enabled the anarcho-revolution. Anarchy just means, according to the Greek words, "an", without, "archy" a ruler.
The new ruler is you. Meet the new revolutionaries leading the revolution.
Just last week the US government and their attempts to control everything showed how impotent the state is in the digital age. Cody Wilson's Defense Distributed posted on their site last week, "This file has been removed from public access at the request of the US Department of Defense Trade Controls. Until further notice, the United States government claims control of the information."
The file had already been downloaded 1,000,000 times however. It's on Pirate Bay, it's on my computer and you can get it almost anywhere. How can they stop it? The only way to stop it would be to attack and try to shut down the entire Internet. Good luck doing that—finally tens of millions of youth, if not many more, have something to fight for. They can't imagine a world without the Internet and if the government tries to shut it down, they'll take their Gears of War skills out into the street with their 3-D printed guns.
And, not to mention, in a recent poll 61% of college students in the US already want the government to stay completely out of their lives.
To add extra cream to this extra yummy freedom milkshake is the fact that many of Defense Distributed's creation came from donations via bitcoin!
Bitcoin is just one arm of the new revolution.
3-D printing is taking the monopoly on violence away from the government and they can't stop it. And, bitcoin is taking the monopoly on money and banking away from the government, and again, they can't stop it.
Believe me, you are going to love this beautiful new world the Digital Age has enabled.
Again, the most dangerous criminal gang on Earth, the US government, has realized bitcoin may become a problem for their fascistic monopoly and have thought about shutting it down. The CFTC just this week said they can regulate bitcoin if they want. And many other US government officials have said that they shoud shut it down.
Good luck! Where do you go to shut down bitcoin? There is no central place where bitcoin is, the same way there is no central place where the blueprints to print a gun on a 3-D printer exist.
Game, set, match.
