Today I discuss this article in Bitcoin Magazine: Read this article
Read it a few times; it's that good.
Here are some highlights I discuss:
Contrast them to the many “influencers” out there spewing the same old artificial beyond-meat manure about “mass adoption” and “building followers” by “trying to make it accessible for everyone.
As a Bitcoiner, diluting your message and your mission to “appeal to the masses” is the greatest fraud you can commit. It’s the pathway to emptiness, to regret and to deep meaninglessness… into the abyss of the masses.
Those who want the best for you are by definition those who demand the best from you.
I find democracy to be abhorrent, and it’s frustrating that the source of human flourishing and progress, i.e., free exchange, property rights and individual ingenuity/productivity, has been conflated with dEmOcRaTiC rule.
The reality is far harsher. Democracy is more accurately the parasite which has benefited from the prosperity of free markets and continued to leech resources, capacity and energy alongside human flourishing.
Democracy emerged in the West as a reaction by the masses, to the prosperity created by the free markets of the Remnant. The rising tide lifted all of the boats and with it came a wave of new capital that the parasitic masses could feed on. Hence, they created, rather mindlessly, a more sophisticated way of stealing from people. The idea:
Give the Remnant enough space to innovate and produce, and then just take all their shit after the fact.
The way of the masses is always a tragedy of the commons.
Democracies create legal, public monopolies, run by popularity contest winners with no skin in the game. They appeal to and always devolve into rule of the masses where morality and the consequences of stupidity are socialized, and often carried or paid for by the productive members of society.
The sales pitch sounds nicer on the surface, but in reality it’s a much greater burden on society because it, a) has the capacity to last, and b) empowers the masses to think they’re somehow in charge, while they proceed to blindly obey their parasitic overlords.
Bitcoin is for the Remnant.
Crypto is for the masses.
The masses are generally on the wrong side of history because of the madness inherent in crowds. They only find themselves “right” when it’s the default position. After the truth, forged forth by the Remnant, finally prevails.
💡 Today's Big Idea
If you believe in property rights, then you must believe in sound money since fiat robs the wealth of humanity.
If you believe in natural law and human rights, you believe in #bitcoin

Our Mission it To Build sovereign individuals and communities through Bitcoin and education so those that need access to the global economy more than anyone can actually benefit from humanity’s prosperty so they can then take their destiny into their own hands rather than having to rely on Western’s.
Mission: Bring financial sovereignity to humanity through bitcoin-focsued education by getting a pre-loaded device with a FREE Eduction, courses, videos, and instructions on how to use the lightning network.
Unsound money ENSLAVES humanity - problem we are solving? Multiple. We are giving access to the global ecomoy, the creator economy to those that need it most - the simple ability to accept payments for work rendered gives agency and ownership to individuals instead of them having to rely on DOLE/Charity.
Sound money → When the US gov prints money, the elite get richer, asset owners get richer, the poor and middle classes in AMERICA and the rest of the world get poorer. Their earning power is now less. Their savings is now less. Their ability to get ahead is now less likely.
Those living under crumbling jurisidcations, war-torn areas, tyrants, socialism, communism, and other terrible ideas that are still used by those in power ot enslave others, need sound money. Bitcoin is the best chance they have to protect thier wealth from governments and theft.
Bitcoin surpasses outdated monppolies thathave been praying on the poor, like Western Union, with their high fees and slow payments or their outright shutting down in a place like Afganistan and Cuba, places where humans need money from relative the most, where they can starve to death.
Disburse phones with EDUCATION + Guides translated to show how to join the Bitcoin network. We want to encourge hodlers yes, but also lightning users if needed.
Include Videos, Guides, How to, things that support people in different areas, from nutrition, to physics, engineering, etc.
For places that dont have it + education on lightnign wallets and usage for africans and south american
Small communities in places with hyper-inflating currencies that need access to the hardest money in existence
