    Because while it is not a perfect place to introduce it, it is vastly better than most sites on the internet, and I have been using it anyways.

    About you being an anarchist, well my own ideology is anarchistic in that it allows every single freedom that does not cause detriment, unfairness/exploition, Harm, or Hindrance of others or society. This is where I make the distinction between positive freedoms vs negative freedoms. Positive freedoms are things you can do because they are not immoral in any way, and negative freedoms are things you can't do because they are immoral.

    I noticed you classified yourself as A leftish-Market-Anarchist. If you have not already checked out my thread regarding my political-philosophical Ideology that I call Morationalism, i would like to introduce you to my thread:

    http://intjforum.com/showthread.php?t=128084&highlight=

    A morationalist is one who believes that all forms of practicality should serve what is right and moral, so that there is no exploitation of individuals, no Harm or hindrance of individuals, or abitrary limitations on individuals, and that fairness i, both economic and social activies and settings is ensured.

    You don't seem to get it. Bitcoin is a brand of software...and there are potentially limitless brands of the same concept. There are already dozens, if not hundreds, of other crypto-currencies out there already, so the total supply of TOTAL crypto-coins is bound to go up, not down. The only way for on Brand of software to dominate is either through government-enforced monopoly...or monopoly by competition.

    For example, Google is the #1 search engine...yet I don't pay squat for it. Granted, I prefer to use other search engines for privacy reasons (and they are all free), but Google remains the best in terms of relevant search results. Because of this, Google became the most successful. Likewise, Bitcoin is but a platform for a software SERVICE, which can be replicated infinitely. Miners and speculators will inevitably get smaller and smaller returns until they learn to earn money in other ways.

    Here's what I'm thinking will happen next. Bitcoin's "coins" become free over time...but the maintainers start selling support services on the side to companies wanting to specialize in their crypto-currency as a transaction service. This is the same approach that Linux distros like Ubuntu adopt, and it works.

    Btw, thanks for offering, but I'm cool. I already have a wallet of my own. Just because it isn't a long-term store of value doesn't mean it isn't useful.

    My opinion hasn't changed for better or worse. Like I said before, I love the technology...but I'm not convinced that the BRAND (Bitcoin) of said technology would ever hold its value over time. Basically, if you get in, prepare to get out like the boom/bust days of the Internet's early beginnings. I also still maintain that with the booming # of crypto-currencies out there, that they'll eventually reach 0 in price...and you will also see more banks coming up to use this cost-effective type of transaction-verification. Peer-Review systems of exchanges are still problematic because of the fact that they take more time the bigger the network becomes...but they'll still fill niches and, best of all, every business can adopt its own version.

    And omg, the Free Detroit project may as well be say they've succeeded, because the city government is woefully inept. All that's left is to put the "Capital" in "Anarcho-Capitalist" and fill the void for law and order. Too bad the city government is is still declaring war on the wrong people. http://reason.com/reasontv/2013/09/1...its-war-on-sma

    As far as El Paso is concerned, you are right; there are libertarians here, and definitely agree that we anarchs aren't on the verge of extinction anymore. Hmmm, orgs like TMC give me great hope. A storm is definitely coming.

    Holy crap! You're on TV! :P Cool links, btw. I can see why he would avoid making that connection on purpose...because there's always the possibility of such an organization being targeted for extinction if he overtly made that connection. This guy has been doing this since the 90s without being shut down for "treason"; I say he's probably pretty smart.

    Likewise, but the networking is invaluable. Sure, I live here in El Paso, Texas. The market here pretty much revolves around Fort Bliss, so finding an anarchist here is next to impossible. I met a friendly Marxist, however, and she is surprisingly open-minded. I might convert her eventually. You?

    I reread your comments on my profile - the point of the thread is not to "debate the validity of the government". If that's what you want to debate then start your own thread. Your claim to be well versed in empirical evidence is comical to say the least. The government exists today and so does sovereign debt. If you truly have a commanding knowledge of those topics, then please share. The point of my thread was to discuss the long term impacts of sovereign debt. If you can demonstrate an ability to stay on topic, rather than childishly steering the thread to your pedantic ends, I will engage you like an adult.

    I can't take you serially because you call government parasitic. I have no interest in debating semantics with someone as willfully ignorant as yourself.

    No. You still have not convinced me that you can think for yourself. All I see is parroted hyperbole. I don't think you'd even comprehend my response so I'll not waste my time. Once you demonstrate an understanding of the purpose and existence of government I will address you like an adult of equal intellect.

    Considering that people tend to stick with the currency that is the most popular (a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy), then you might be right about BC being on top. Definitely agree with the rest.

    fee.org just got put into my "liberty" bookmarks. I didn't realize the last article you posted was also from Jeffrey Tucker until the end. Damn, it's good it's read from him again! No, never heard of threatmanagementcenter before or shieldmutual, but both are excellent first steps toward my dream of a true defense/arbitration network.

    Honestly, still skeptical about BC's long-term status. Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't someone just create another BC alternative (as was the case with Litecoin) and diminish its marketability? There's nothing physically like Gold or Silver, but software is software. Great idea for a charter airline, btw. If BC software can be pegged to physical commodities, and be just as secure, then I'd be all in.

    Oh, I didn't mean it as if we were disagreeing. Just pointing out that whereas you and I would freely cooperate mutually, hardly anyone would freely come to the state's defense. Sorry for the confusion.
