Paralyzed by fear..

Look man, Life has risks... crossing the street has risks, should you debate and think of all the things that could go wrong pick the very worst things and then use that to justify not crossing the street.

The point I'm trying to make is you need to properly asses risk and put it into context. Is Bitcoins perfect... Is it the end all be all..Absolutely not. However that doesn't mean you shouldn't use it.

All the fear you have about the Bitcoin system could be said about Gold and Silver. Someone looking to purchase Gold and Silver could say.. "What if the government comes to confiscate it, What if the government labels me a terrorist, What if they impose jail sentences for using it to trade, what if they impose high taxes on it's sale..." See, that risk is all there for Gold and Silver but assesing the risk of owning precious metals vs not should lead someone to conclude that they should own precious metals despite the risk.

It's the exact same thing with Bitcoins.but still the risk is on a lesser scale. Remember no one is saying to put your wealth into Bitcoins the arguement is to use it as a currency to transact and bypass the dollar. It's Dollars vs Bitcoins... Honestly, your fear is really irrational when you think of all the risk associated with FIAT central banker debt money.
