Reality that 40% of bank accounts in Cyprus were siezed?
Reality that Bitcoin has passed $180?
Reality that 401(k) seizures are coming next?
Then none of this is futile.
I am willing to bet and accept they "need" the 401(k)s. Dosen't really change anything. Whether they need it or not, perhaps the owner of one, while they still own it, might want to find another method of storing it.
One example of why this is all worthwhile. More than just a hobby. There are real fundamental changes in the world underway and this is the most insightful means to know and discuss what they are.
