    GIM tried to educate and inform the membership about Bitcoin years ago, but we wouldn't listen :)

    Should also include a "fraudulent and corrupt judicial system" as well as a "fraudulent and corrupt healthcare system". Also a "fraudulent and corrupt education system". And of course, a "fraudulent and corrupt financial system".

    Great! Concise. Keeps the focus on money which influences, impacts and is the foundation of ALL parts of ALL systems. No wiggle room for the pretzel "logic" of leftist influenced gray matter.

    money/fiat/whatever isn't the focus

    that is only the scoreboard, everybody clamoring for their position on the scoreboard,

    it is all about power and who has access to it, then all the rest follows

    IMO for sure

    banksters this and banksters that is yesterdays myopic pov IMO,

    somebody/something runs the bankers,

    go beyond to what is really going on is where I come down,

    Yeah, it seems that just as politicians are selected from a pool of obedient or controllable (blackmail) types, the bankers seem to be selected from a similar pool. Names change, but policies seem to be directed by a very high and invisible source.

    Shouldn't that be "libertarian" and not the co-opted liberal word?

    Blaming bitcoin for being stolen from an exchange is akin to blaming gold for being on a train that's robbed. Headlines like "BITCOIN STOLEN" or "EXCHANGE HACKED" exist only to frighten people that don't know much about bitcoin.

    ...and blaming bitcoin because someone lost their private keys is like blaming FRNs for someone losing their wallet. ...except with bitcoin you can make an infinite number of backups of your wallet. The only excuse for that to happen is that the owner of those keys was careless/lazy/dumb.

    In short, bitcoin is somehow to blame for human nature. People sometimes steal stuff, and yes people are sometimes stupid and/or lazy, but blaming bitcoin for human nature is like blaming guns for "killing people" or cash for "being stolen". If people would just treat bitcoin like commodity money then most of the stupid would go away.
