Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

I honestly don't have near enough knowledge on the subject to determine that, actually, the reason I think it won't go anywhere, is because I'm conspiratorially minded in a sense in regard to the economy, the pyramidal structure of things. It seems to me that a certain level of economic slavery(as ...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

One of the lessons I learned the hard way actually, that's probably why guilt was considered a sin if I'm not mistaken. Stress and high demand has a backwards effect and leads one to do worse and turn in on themselves. I added these to my knowledge of character flaws, immoral behavior, bad ethics, ...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

It depends what you mean by financial freedom, which in my observation, as commonly defined, is usually an illusion of financial freedom. True. Ultimately, I aim to set myself up for a simple life in retirement. Whether or not the price is suppressed, the gold bugs should adjust their predictions a...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

but one of my conclusions is that one should pay much greater attention to avoiding immoral activity and embodying virtue as much as possible, as it is so easy, and we are all so prone to get stuck in the tendency of, hamstering excuses, doubts, fears, or even focusing on rational downsides, and us...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

Propagating it should always be after number one, which should be to 'gain' more wisdom, if possible. No doubt. Of course, once you've got it, you've got it. Embodying it is a whole 'nother animal. As for bitcoin, I definitely don't see it as any revolutionary currency which will result in a more f...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

Hello Eric, Why worry yourself about international currency issues? Is wisdom too boring for you? Do you want to get rich? Has a scrumptous siren tempted you to provide for her with gold? If there is a connection to this topic to wisdom, I'd very much like to hear it, since my degrees are in economi...

Re: The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

I think modern economical markets are often about the complex struggle between adding control and removing or challenging those. Some controls are hidden, others are public. The role of currency type remains irrelevant, ultimately. Hmm. I agree that, for the masses, in everyday situations, the curr...

Re: The social justice wars

This SJW vs alt-right war is merely just the far left vs the far right. There's a lot more people fighting against the SJWs than the far right. I'm a left-leaning person, and I'm fully against the SJWs. Others, like Jordan Peterson, or the Google memo writer, are centrist. This may be the case, but...

Hey Jup! While you could perhaps argue that Alphabet's market cap is inflated, I doubt that its revenue and profit numbers from wikipedia are far off. Adwords and adsense are huge money makers. Check out this and this . I agree that YouTube is likely a money pit for them in itself, but worth it over...

The Future of Money - Gold Standard - Bitcoin

The stark dichotomy of political power between uber rich and the rest of us became most obvious after the housing crash and the trillion dollar bailouts . Yet the public no longer see this as "the big problem" as the elite-bought MSM has been hammering home the false reality of an "economic recovery...

Re: The social justice wars

Google's goal is to gather data and give people what they are looking for based on that data. Because they do this so well is why they are as big as they are. The results are a reflection of the sentiments of society, which is heavily progressing towards feminine values. It's fitting that Google's e...

Alex, how familiar are you with Black Wall Street of Tulsa? Here's an excellent documentary. Note not so much the riot, but the success of the segregated black man, and the efforts to erase the history of this success following the riots, and think about the effects that this erasing must have on t...

Re: Statement about Solway and Trump

How in fuck was this frigid harpy allowed to traumatise a bunch of kids with her SJW bs in the 60s? If an authority figure tells a boy he is better than *anyone* in his peer group because of XYZ, you can bet he'll believe it. As I've stated before, I'm not really a fan of her or her work, but her e...

Faustian - Sacrificing spiritual values for power, knowledge, or material gain. Whoops, you just exposed yourself.

What's laughable is that you blindly believe that Asians ever had a monopoly on Truth seeking. You've lost track of what's going on. The main proponent of any race having a monopoly on anything is you. Creativity and the Faustian Spirit are something European men posses to a far greater degree than...

AWM may or may not be speaking from a position of 'fear'. He may be speaking just as well from an embryonic ideological position and one that is more angry than fearful.

Personal attacks? Don't you think you're overreacting? I must have struck a nerve. Instead of scolding me like some kind of smarmy school teacher maybe you should do some reflection.
