I have been reflecting a lot about the peer to peer money for the world movement. One thing that really strikes out to me is that many of these heroes are mostly ordinary folks, doing extraordinary things above and beyond, changing the world one step at a time. As the saying goes, extraordinary people are just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. And this article is dedicated to each and every single one of you, whose names I may not know, but whose purpose binds us together.
Life is short and I think it is not so much what you have in life, but what you left behind in life that impacts others in a positive way, is more valuable and everlasting. In some religions, this is what is known as enlightenment. In fact, you probably won’t recall as much the millionaires of the past century but you might know the names of people like Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, etc. They may be gone but their legacy lives on forever. And I think that is true of your work in some ways. For that, you have my respect.
For the folks working in the background pushing adoption and growing the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, I am sure that I am not the only one who has been privately inspired by your actions, so please keep up the good work. Know that revolutionary movements that are worth doing seldom comes easy, but just like Martin Luther King, it has to start with someone with a dream. And this article is dedicated to you, whose dreams may be the same as mine, a world where ordinary people are in control of their own financial sovereignty, with freedom and liberty, where wars are a thing of the past (because governments can no longer fund wars through printing money), where corrupted governments no longer suppress their citizens like what they did in Venezuela, where the world is so much better off for billions of born and unborn children.
This article is an ode to you, Bitcoin Cash supporters, because you inspires me. Thanks for making a difference and thanks for doing what you are doing, even if your efforts may at times been overlooked and underappreciated. This is my ode to you.
Hrrmmmmss…. How does this work? If I switch pages will it save the draft?.. It did not save my bio when I clicked submit. So I will have to rewrite my bio. All good.
Aha, this draft has been saved!! Most excellent.
Where to start. I Have been in Crypto since dec 2013. I first started acquiring "private money" or "p2p cash" when I finally understood what was going on and the market was crashing. The first three times I heard about Bitcoin and what it was being used for, the market price was climbing and I looked the other way. I knew something was up but I couldn't put my finger on it. I wrote it off as E-gold which was squashed almost as soon as it was created. At $30, $50 and $80 I was disinterested. But at $1200 and crashing It was all the talk.
Shady news travels fast. The saying goes a lie travels faster than honest news can put its shoes on, or something like that, so the first 3 times I heard about Bitcoin I was skeptical. For most people i know they enter the space anywhere from the 7th to the 10th time they hear about bitcoin or they've overheard me ramble on about protecting wealth on many occasions, or in some negative news which seems to be the mainstay with new ideas or news in general. All in all very new to me still at that point, I could see there was more to understand and learn than the headlines were leading on because of this monstrous climb in price, I had to know what this was all about. I started my personal finance story off as a gold bug or further back in college in economics class, but there's much more to that story which I can get into in another post.
I find myself educating people on most topics, I do read a lot, more like all day long, more than most it seems and I needed to acquire all the information I could, so 6 years later and its past midnight in NYC, you can understand my sentiment and why my never ending search for knowledge has lead me here sparked by the right idea. Protecting ones wealth and having a future were at odds in NY then and I regret not hearing or taking the news more seriously as most do in this space earlier. My thoughts were radical at that point according to the mainstream media and Ron Paul wasn't well received by the major players in the political discourse. He is my hero and volunteerism is my guiding principle so coming of age for me was riddled with minor setbacks.
The future is hard to predict so I won't flog myself publicly much longer but I could not have made a better choice when I took the first leap of faith at $700 and I bought a quarter of a bitcoin. This was most of my monies at that point but I kept acquiring all the way down, even picked two up at around $170. Most of my acquisitions were squandered one way or another with alter coins or a hack, but I held on to some BTC. I have since figured out how to trade with intellect rather than emotions and instinct rather than fear and the light is brighter than ever. If there is a truth to be had, it is have some conviction in life no matter the naysayer, stay strong and hodl on. This is my crypto story, this is my truth. I hope yours is just as excellent. "Our greatest joy is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall" a saying on a plaque in my kitchen growing up. Thanks to everyone who helped me become a better man and thanks to people like you guys who allow us to share ourselves with the help of technology to keep the playing field honest. My sincerest appreciation.

Google is a US military contractor working for the pentagon's murder-by-drone "projects". Before getting in the drones-for-murder business, Google was already working for the US military through its Boston Dynamics subsidiary. And these are just two examples off the top of my head. Of course, the main reason why Google exists is to spy on the whole world as partner in crime of the NSA.
You can read more about the very close relationship between Google criminals and US government criminals here.

The international image of Colombia has improved drastically in the last two decades but has the quality of life there improved too? Definitely in some sense it has, for basic services have reached more remote areas and technology has helped close the gap in production. Yes, you don't hear the same stories about sicarios and kidnappings, but has the reality truly evolved?
I would say no, if anything Colombia is currently under a higher level of censorship than it previously was. In a way one could say that the bad people won, and that although the waters seem calmer on the surface it is only because the oppression is more efficient.
The underdog, the Colombian middle and lower class population, continues to live in a hostile environment silenced by the legal and illegal armed forces; their realities censored from the rest of the world. In the last year alone thousands of community leaders have been murdered with the news never traveling even as far as the local outlets.
The international corporations that exploit the natural resources in Colombia work in collaboration with the paramilitary groups to subjugate the population, at the same time making corrupt alliances with the government officials to get unmonitored licenses to, for all intent and purpose, steel our natural resources. The most ironic part is that this conflict has been going on for so long that Colombians themselves have engaged in this cycle of self-hatred, blaming each other for their sorrows instead of joining forces against the true culprits that compromise their wellbeing.
The international news community continuously fails to share with the world the true horrors of our living situation. Hopefully one day, through platforms like honest cash the voices of all those who are now threatened and oppressed will see the light, and the continued genocide taking place in Colombia will subside.
Uncensored freedom of speech is one of the most important vehicles to ending human right violations around the world.
There is a french economist whose name is Frederic Bastiat and who tends to be known in libertarian circles. Around 1850 Bastiat wrote :
"Between a good and a bad economist this constitutes the whole difference — the one takes account of the visible effect; the other takes account both of the effects which are seen, and also of those which it is necessary to foresee."
That quote comes from a collection of essays titled "That Which is Seen, and That Which is Not Seen" [http://bastiat.org/en/twisatwins.html
Bastiat points out for instance that when an activity is subsidized by the government there are visible benefits (say a particular product gets cheaper) but hidden costs. And it turns out that the hidden costs offset the alleged benefits.
However, the principle doesn't apply only to the flaws in government subsidies. It applies to any situation where the cost of something is hidden or purposedly ignored.
Libertarians like to praise division of labor a lot. They talk about the amazing benefits that division of labor furnishes. And it is true that division of labor allows a group of people to carry out complex tasks and produce goods that individuals acting alone couldn't produce. So what is seen here is that division of labor enables the creation of technically complex goods. The interesting thing is that alleged libertarians completely ignore the costs of division of labor. Despite their constant talk about economics libertarians are bad economists.
The cost and uninteded consequence of the division of labor is that individuals become dependent on it. And this should be an obviously undesirable outcome for libertarians, who claim to value individual freedom.
Division of labor becomes especially toxic when mixed with government, and sadly that's the way it has always existed. In a complex economy individuals are heavily dependant on technical expertise they don't personaly have and that expertise is in the hands of people who closely cooperate with the government, serving the government's ends.
A glaring example of this is the current surveillance state run by "great capitalist heroes" from Silicon Valley. The technical infrastructure is controlled by criminal organizations like google, apple, intel, facebook and the like who in turn are nothing but private facades for the state.
Are libertarians bothered by this? Not as far as I know. If anything the majority of libertarians are corporate apologists who see big corrupt businesses as "poor oppressed victims" of the state.
Regarding free speech, my previous post on Honest Cash was about freedom of expression and censorship focusing on J.S. Mill's arguments. In that post, I had mentioned Mill's Harm Principle and how a hate speech could be argued around the principle. In this post, I would like to make reference to Holocaust denial in the context of freedom of expression. The reason why I wanted to write about is a n...
I've written a bit about the Consolidating CoinJoin protocol I am developing for anonymizing Bitcoin Cash. A competing protocol, CashShuffle, is further along in its development cycle. Installing it is only for the technically competent, but if that's you, read on and learn how to install it and start anonymizing your Bitcoin Cash today!
A few things to keep in mind before getting started:

Freedom of speech or freedom of self-expression has always been of the most argued concepts respecting its scope, its limit as well as its possible effects on an individual or a society. We could say that it has always been a popular concept to debate mostly by the philosophers under the topic of liberty.
However, we see that a lot of people have recently been referencing to "freedom of speech"...

Evil lives in dark corners. The more dark corners exist, the more it thrives. Competition tends to squeeze out dark corners. Monopolies on violence, backed by propaganda and fear, create more dark corners.
Anything deemed too important/necessary to question or face competition is a giant web of protected dark corners. This is why the myth of authority and the myth of the rule of law are so dang...

Are you asking why? Because we don't count for no reason, because we don't spend time with stupid things.

We have to do more important things than this. We have to buy presents, we have to plan our holiday, we have to stay for overtime. We have no time for this.
Currently, in many places, when someone poses “an immediate danger” to their-self, police and in turn psychiatrists can detain them for treatment. This is despite not having broken any laws. If someone’s life is so miserable and weary of life that they want to end it, should not they be allowed to? Should not they be allowed to do this in as peaceful a way possible? It seems they should be offered...
For those in a psychiatric unit voluntarily, being in a psychiatric hospital can be comforting and helpful, potentially. Although, many individuals are not given a chance to give authentic informed consent much or most of the time.
For those in a psychiatric unit involuntarily, such a nonconsensual experience can feel like abuse and even like torture sometimes. The psychiatric survivor movement ...
