Comment: I think you missed the point.

(See in situ)

I think you missed the point.

I think you missed the point. The fact that you can switch the word "bitcoin" to anything else, even gold, was the point of the post.

"Store of value" has never been a quality of money. Can't store value anymore than you can store love, hatred, or happiness, honesty, or any other idea. Ideas do not exist outside of an individual's mind.

Of course, a lot of people WISH that value could be stored, and task those who have violent tendencies with trying to make it happen.

It's kinda like one of the posters here that's always saying BS like "anarchists don't know what threatens freedom". Umm, duh!!! Can't remember who it is, but the messenger doesn't matter. This person may WISH that gov't could protect us, and they probably WISH that gov't didn't use aggression, and they might even WISH that anarchists don't believe in defense, but they will always be wrong, because these aren't actually the beliefs of voluntarists.

You may wish money was a store of value, but it isn't, and there is nothing the gov't can do about that. Value can't be stored.
