Cryptoism

crypto-Anarchism

A spectre is haunting the world — the spectre of Cryptoism. All the powers of the old world of flesh and steel have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: political puppets of every party around the globe, regulators and bankers from every corner of the planet, and police and military forces of every nationality.

Two things result from this fact:

I. Crypto and cyberspace is already acknowledged by all world powers to be itself a power.

II. It is high time that Digital Natives should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their view, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Cryptoism with a manifesto of objectives.

To this end, digital citizens around the world have started running nodes to distribute our code, and create a new society across the global. Arise Digizens! You have nothing left to lose but the chains of the old world, and a whole world to win!

From each according to the code, to each according to the keys!

The Destituent Power of Crypto

Arduino

“There is something that all people, whether they admit it or not, know in their heart of hearts: that things could have been different, that that would have been possible. They could live not only without hunger and also probably without fear, but also freely. And yet, at the same time—and all over the world—the social apparatus has become so hardened that what lies before them as a means of possible fulfillment presents itself as radically impossible” –Theodor Adorno

We will witness the radical impossibility that has been promised since antiquity: a world unified under the banner of true freedom. Through the power of digital technology and crypto, this world will become a reality. This is because the form of power that crypto is based upon is only a destituent kind of power–it only finds value in a world where money, language, and politics have been fully corrupted, and the only thing left to do is to refuse it. Through the deactivation of the power structure as we understand it through a totally new strategy of power inoperativity, we break the whole system.

The new digital economic exist outside and beyond the control of any and all forms of government. It does this through deactivating the control states have on the economy through creating a new monetary system. From the NSA, CIA, and DOD, there is no lettered agency that can claim any degree of sovereignty over our means of economic exchange, and private communications that we have made for ourselves within the framework of crypto. There is nothing they can do other then display their powerlessness against the majesty of cryptography, and their own selfish and fearful need to control everything. Crypto is the bases for the new society that we shall create in the shell of the old.

Destituent Power

Agamben“If revolutions and insurrections correspond to constituent power, that is, a violence that establishes and constitutes the new law, in order to think a destituent power we have to imagine completely other strategies, whose definition is the task of the coming politics. A power that was only just overthrown by violence will rise again in another form, in the incessant, inevitable dialectic between constituent power and constituted power, violence which makes the law and violence that preserves it.” -Giorgio Agamben

The goal is not to create a new form of money–that has already been achieved. The real objective is to render a new kind of law; a new kind of politics. A kind of politics that does not taint itself with the violence of man, or the machinery of the state. There no longer is a need for the law-making violence of the state machine, and we are creating a new world where such crude and barbaric forms of violence can no longer legitimize themselves. We shall vanquished such evil from this world through simply absconding into bits spread all through the globe.

A new epoch is beginning and the first goal is to render both old money and old politics not just worthless; but as a testament of its corruption.

Our power is a destituent one. A power which robs the current laws and politics of any meaning through displaying their total corruption. This empowering a new system which they cannot affect, they cannot touch, and they cannot corrupt. We can do this through shattering the current economic-political monopoly, and rending those powerful in old world indifferent to that of the digital realm.

We seek to reactivate Law as it was suppose to be, rather then attempting to constituting changes through the corrupt system of today. The laws of the old world are meaningless in this digital space; and now we need to make this is true in the world of flesh and steel as well. Once we see that abandonment of the current political architecture is the only way forward, that we will be able to start to creating our new form of politics.

The digital system radically divides itself from the state system of laws through a political praxis of non-violence. Through protecting information with encryption, and widely distributing media against corruption and injustice as a form of truth, we can create a new world.

The legal violence which enacts state laws and creates their power simply cannot exist here: there is no territory in which it can apply itself. This radical division is what fundamentally divides our codified digital laws from contemporary violence made laws. We don’t need the violence of statism to cooperate.

The Digital Commons as an Economic and Political Praxis

Through the power of the internet and the digital commons, we can recreate our systems of government to be the Utopian fantasies they were dreamed to be. We can reactivate the power of being ruled by constitutions–agreements to what we are entitled to as citizens. This can allow for us to be governed by the science and immutability of technology, rather then the finicky wills of men who corrupt with ease for selfish gains. No longer do we need to tolerate the violations of our sacred compacts, and the trouncing of the very rights which create our governments.

The deployment of all of these new cryptosystems with harden cryptography is not just a mathematical breakthrough, but the roots of an epochal change. The economic power of digital currencies deposes of state economic system in exchange for a digital one. This is just the very beginning of the deposition of power away from the hands of the state, and back into that of the people. Over the next decade these systems are going to fundamentally challenge the state, and their control on every level of life.

This power deposes because it is an explicit exit from the current, corrupt economic and political system that is pervasive and all-encompassing in our lives. In the digital, the whole multitude of society can exist; with no minders or masters. Here we have chosen to construct all of this for ourselves, without the help of our masters of state, or their capitalist allies who have corrupted our systems of government for private gains.

Towards the Future

We can create a radical new world where the freedom of all is not just a hope, but a reality. The power of technology has drawn us closer then we have ever been before, and now we can see the world as it truly is:

There are untold billions of us living in the most destitute of situations, fighting for the smallest of scraps from Empire. Once we see that there is the greatest of strengths in creating a new form of digital solidarity which can beat back the beast of global fascism, we then might stand a chance for a real future which we are no longer slaves; but truly free to determine the world which we will make.

Ethereum, Crisis, and Code as Law

The crisis that is currently facing the Etherum community with the upcoming hardfork to recover The DAO funds brings up the fascinating question of what is the role of those who write the code which acts as functional law in the land of cryptocurrencies? The Code may very well be The Law within these systems, but what happens when the rules of such a society starts to break down, and the very core of those laws seems to be threatened? Must the law be maintained no matter what, including the destruction of the society? I think not.

Salus Publica Suprema Lex

This latin phrase came to be one of the highest laws in the Roman Republic. It loosely translates to, “public safety is the highest law,” which includes the guiding principal that necessity does not acknowledge any law. What we uncovered here is the very real political praxis that operates within the Ethereum community, and the cryptocurrency community at large. The political action behind the code can always find itself in the most extreme scenarios, in which it must operation outside and beyond the principals of the code as it was written. We find that at the extremes of the breakdown of the code, there is always the meatspace where the intentions of those who make the code can reactivate it to what it was intended to be.

For the Ethereum community, the DAO hack was not just a challenge to the code that has been written, but to the very foundation of what is to be done. If the NSA or GCHQ had hacked The DAO, or compromised the Ethereum protocol itself, would we sit aside and proclaim, “The code is law, and there is nothing we can do,” or would we choose to fight back?

Direct Action has no code

There was no code, no digital currencies, and no method of digital economic action to resist the corrupt banking and economic machine in 2007. This did not stop Satoshi from his radical dream of create a new digital compact through code, in which we could create a new economic system which the state was banished from entering.

Flash forward 7 years and see what we have now. There is not just one, but hundreds of digital currencies all which pose some degree of threat to the contemporary economic system. Each and every one of these new forms of money is not just code–it is a protocol of direct digital political action.

There is no code for direct action. There is only the principals that guide us in the same way that there are principals that guide the functions of cryptography. Does it serve the function of public safety for what we need it (in this case, is the crypto secure) or has it been compromised? This is the same function that the direct action of a hardfork serves when it is to help preserve the integrity of the system as a whole. There is no code to ensure the system functions as it should–only the will of those who code it.

Crisis as Consensus Building

If the DAO hacker gets to take control of the amount of Ether that is on the line, there is a very real possibility of the whole system of Ethereum being compromised. The DAO hacker can control a significant % of Ether and use that to stake for much more Ether once Caspar has been implemented. More importantly, however, would be the display of callowness from the Ethereum core devs, and their willingness to let their vision be compromised, all because they see the code as the highest law, and not their ability to affect it.

At this point we can choose to move forward with the code as it has acted, or we can usurp the unintended action of the code in the name of the safety of the system. The Law of the code is not what is written, but what is intended by those who operate it and give it real power.

The Ethereum hardfork that will happen tomorrow is simply the reactivation of the code as it was suppose to be. I support these actions because they show the strength, courage, and tenacity that the Ethereum core devs have. They will see their vision of an open financial system birthed into the world, and it is because of their own willingness to demand that. They are allies in our quest to free the world of statist fiat money, and this is just the first of many test of what shall be done when we are face-to-face with what can either destroy us, or make us stronger.

Facing such crises together and choosing to lead us through these times of crisis is what shall allow for us to change the world! The code is not law, but what we choose to support and manifest is!

Here is my salute to the Ethereum core devs! Keep pushing forward the code that will help us change the world, and know that you are supported in your efforts!

The Brinkmanship of Crypto

“A specter is haunting the modern world, the specter of crypto anarchy. Computer technology is on the verge of providing the ability for individuals and groups to communicate and interact with each other in a totally anonymous manner. Two persons may exchange messages, conduct business, and negotiate electronic contracts without ever knowing the true name, or legal identity, of the other. Interactions over networks will be untraceable, via extensive rerouting of encrypted packets and tamper-proof boxes which implement cryptographic protocols with nearly perfect assurance against any tampering. Reputations will be of central importance, far more important in dealings than even the credit ratings of today. These developments will alter completely the nature of government regulation, the ability to tax and control economic interactions, the ability to keep information secret, and will even alter the nature of trust and reputation.”
― Peter Ludlow, Crypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias

States believe themselves to be above and beyond the laws and constitutions that created them. They believe they are the law itself, no different from the kings and emperors that came before them. This has driven the world under the leadership of state governments into a dangerous power struggle with their own people. This game of brinkmanship has led to the extreme development and deployment of cryptography as a means to resist tyranny, and will cause for the downfall of states in the coming years as they lose control of the means of communications, exchange, and ultimately their population.

Due to the constant transgressions of all States into a territory to which they have no claim, we have been forced to use the power of encryption to shield ourselves from their glaring eyes. We use encryption to protect the very rights to which we are entitled, but which the state would still deny us. The same aggressive, violent and illegal behavior states display outwardly towards each other, they now present towards their own people. The have pushed us into a brinkmanship that can only end in our mutually assured destruction:

The people, as bound and sworn subjects, and States, as sovereign governments that reign through the power of the Social Contract and constitutions that bind us.

This is how the old social contract is destroyed, and new smarter one is deployed.

Encryption as Resistance to Tyranny

The power struggle for states to control all communications has each state engaged in a civil war against their own citizen for control of all information. States violate civil liberties of their citizens systematically, utilizing violent police actions to respond to our political actions. We are fed propaganda that such actions are for our own safety, and that the state must see all and approve of all to protect against ‘terrorist’ that are little more than a fabrication. We are brainwashed from a young age not to disobey authority or we will be met with the truncheon and broken teeth. Direct physical resistances is impossible and merely gains us broken bones, and lengthy prison sentences. To abscond into bits is our only hope now.

These repressive bodies of armed men under the authority of the state has driven the circumstances which impels the development of cryptosystems. This dangerous game that has all states engaged in brinkmanship against their citizens, violating their right to privacy and interloping into every facet of life for ‘security reasons’. Through these actions, states have caused for the extreme development and use of cryptosystems across the global. States have proven themselves to no longer be trusted, and we must use crypto to protect ourselves from them. People around the globe can now use crypto to negate the economic and political functions of the state, and evade their unjust draconian laws.

Digital currencies are the economic empowerment of cryptosystems that fights against both corrupt bankers, and the corrupt state fiat money system. Over the next several years there will be a florishment of activity from System D, and the global south as they discover what crypto can do for them. This will be at the expense of the contemporary economic and political system, as more and more people choose to exit state economies and political systems, and join the new digital ones.

Economic Resistance Through Digital Currencies

It is inevitable that this new form of technological capital will clash against the old forms industrial capital. Through the creative deconstruction of money as a social ideal, bitcoin recreates capital as access to, and direct ownership of the social network that is money. It renders a new kind of capital that is based upon mathematics, encryption, and technology; which is superior and more efficient that the violent monetary monopolies of state fiat capital.

Crypto provides absolute protection of both ones communications, and now wealth as well. It is from this base of power that we can start to understand the true power at the root of digital currencies.

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are new forms of capital that any person can use from anywhere on the planet. We are creating a new world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth.  We are creating a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity. State legal concepts of property, expression, identity, movement, and context do not apply to us. They are all based on matter, and there is no matter here.

Through the understanding and application of cryptocurrenices and cryptosystems to the modern economic and political machine, we are forging a new future; outside and beyond the controls of states from the past.

Digital Solidarity

There is solidarity to be found in our mutual quest to have transparent, privacy-protected form of wealth. This solidarity is transnational in its nature, and can be found among people in every corner of the globe. We now have a mode of true economic resistance that will allow for us to reject the corrupt beast of government and capitalism, while forging a more egalitarian system for all. There is now an economic system which makes economic exploitation much more difficult. This will create a rising tide for all, at the expense of the contemporary capitalist class. Crypto gives people a way to organize, communicate, and exchange for themselves, without the approval of the state and outside of the banking system. This new form of international money can operate outside the bounds and beyond the limitations of any, and all states. It is truly a manifestation of a digital sovereign; an economic and political power that is beholden only to itself.

People of the world will adopt cryptocurrencies in the coming decades, not from the majesty that is offered by the mathematical security of these systems, but the from the sheer economic efficiency they present against the old monetary system. Digital currencies are too efficient and inexpensive when compared to the expensive, corrupt, inept system of finance, exchange, economics, and banking the world has today–the transaction cost of cryptocurrency systems are just too low compared to fiat ones. Digital currencies can help our society solve the fundamental issue that has always existed between money, and exploitation: the control of money itself.

Hidden from the all-seeing oppressive panopticon of the technological totalitarian state; crypto is the organizational weapon against the bureaucratic state, their police armies of death, and their alliances with corrupt capitalist who poison and permanently destroy vast swaths of the natural world. We can now fight back without needing to subjugate ourselves to the violence that will meet us if we organization in the streets. We must strike at the root of the problem, which is economic in nature, and has manifest itself though the control money by a small corrupt group of politicians and bankers. We must end this exploitation, and the only way is to create and use another system of money which they can have no power over.

Crypto Endgame

There is a total war that is happening against all people right now–a grand civil war that has all states engaged against all people. This war is pervasive, all-seeing, and complete in the most insidious ways. The web of torment and despair we have endure can only be made present by the catastrophe as Angelus Novus sees it. This is about far more than just money and economics–this is about justice, redemption, and the creation of a free future for all.

As people start to see through the illusion of money and how governments use that to control their populations; their will be a slow abandonment of government fiat currencies for cryptocurrencies. Through withdrawing our support of fiat money, the old system will collapse upon itself, and there will be a grand jubilee. States will be forced to acknowledge our economic power, and ask for our help–to which we will say no, and we will watch them burn.

The war by the state against citizens is larger than about simply having privacy, or a right to personal wealth–this is about fascism. The insidious, hidden mode in which intolerance and oppression is allowed to exist through an authoritarian state masters commanded by capitalist. These people in government care more about controlling people through violence, than to resolve the problems that propel their populations to demand justice. We can now create that on our own; without their help and beyond their control.

We are creating a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace. May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments have made before.

What Is To Be Done

“Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement.”

hb6tgne

At the end of the 20th century humanity was given the most powerful tool that the world has ever seen: the internet. In less than 20 years, the internet has evolved from being a slow, complex, obscure piece of technology to connecting billions of people today with just the flick of a button. Despite the fact that we can use the internet to communicate more efficiently, and exchange information with magnitudes more efficiency then just a few decades ago; we still find the shadow of fascism grow larger with each passing day…

Control of our respective economic, political, and social systems have been overtaken by corrupt capitalist and their political stooges, and now they seek to take over the internet itself. It does not matter if you are German, Korean, Argentinian, or American–all of our systems have been corrupted in the same way, with the same methodology, by the same class of people. Corruption reigns supreme, while the basic needs of society as a whole are ignored. Self-determined humans everywhere have been hamstrung by economic corruption, government impotence, and social cowardice to ensure that the wealthy will always win.

This is THE defining feature of ALL so-called democracies around the world. Unless we choose to fight this corruption directly and to strike at the single root which unites them; we will continue to suffer under their exploitation. The single feature which unites them is fiat money; and that is the very structure–the very object–which we seek to destroy. Through the promotion, advocacy, and use of digital currencies we can destroy the contemporary financial system, which is controlled by the 0.1% at the expense of the whole of society.

Politics and Economics are Inseparable

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-10-56-54-amWe must understand that there is absolutely no division between economics and politics. It is by the very make up of our political and monetary system that all economic conditions are determined. It is only when we fully recognize that political power is only economy power that we will be able to create the revolutionary struggle against all state monetary systems and their kleptocratic allies.

Never has there been a greater need for true radicalism to emerge to challenge the fascism hidden in the folds of all governments. We must radically divide ourselves from every other supposed ‘political’ group in order to make our struggle clear. Each and every sort of progressive movement throughout the world today finds itself under the constant glare of the fascist machine to ensure it remains complacent and broken. Threatened to be violently crushed back down each time we rises up; the people callow under the glare of the machine like cattle calmed by the hushes of butchers. For the first time in history, there is a real possibility for true international proletarianism, if we choose it.

We can use the internet to as our revolutionary vehicle to organize ourselves, and digital currencies as our method to create economic independence. All that is left is to create the organizational structure that will create a new future, in solidarity will all oppressed people everywhere.

As this new form of power grows to show what it is capable of, a new power structure will form–a polis within the internet itself, which will become the citizenship of the future.

From this base of power we can start to organize against all states, and the corporate machines that control them. As our membership grows, so will our political practice, and our political consciousness. This is how we build a new future outside and beyond the horrors that currently haunt the future which we are marching into.

Beyond The Spectacle

tv-specDespite the incredible power of the internet, today we stand stunned and seduced before it; subject to it, rather than subjugating it. We are hypnotized by the taste of the social architecture; the dazzle of infinite distraction. Wsuccumb to the inertia of the impossibility of our task; feeling no more than a hollow glimmer that a different world is possible. Today even the most ‘radical’ solutions are little more than an impotent sigh; a sign of caring imbued with defeat from the start. Not an action of true struggle, but the compromises of slaves who know freedom can never be a reality.

The Left, crushed and broken for decades, has become little more then a false idol to placate the the liberal masses. To offer some illusion of progressiveness is the sole duty of liberalism, while allowing for nothing to change. Even socialist today are little more then apologist for the capitalist system, only wishing for a more ruthless exertion of state control upon capital.

If want to create a new way forward, the only way is to break the bonds of the old system itself: Money.

By break the antiquated money system of old, while cultivation any new one they do not control; we can change everything.

The New Way Forward

Every party today wishes, beg, and cowtows for The Machine of State-Capitalism to change its horrific ways.

Where is the party to which would stand and fight against this Machine? Where is the party that would crush it where it stands and to uncompromisingly disassemble each and every last cog of the machine to make way for a better tomorrow? Where is this party that proclaims to be a true representative of the people? This party is nowhere to be found, which is why we must lead to a new way of life that is beyond parties and politics.

It is this false hope that a ‘party’ can steer the state and use that power for good which is the greatest enemy of our cause. To believe in the legitimacy of a corrupt electoral system only empowers the corrupt, and legitimizes their evils. To truly create change we must go beyond the false political consciousness we have been given, and construct a radical new one.

No Gods of Government, No Masters of Money.

We radically divide ourselves from the liberals, socialist, communist, and libertarians who refuse to work towards a better tomorrow without the state, and against the capitalist machine. They beg and plead to reform this horrible system, and would rather tolerate a corrupt, inept government; then acknowledge the puppet democracy for the false idol it is. It is only when we realize reform is impossible, that we will be free to achieve inevitable:

Revolution!

To Create a Revolutionary Future

We must create our own organization that stands against the evil anachronistic ways of the past, while radically embracing the liberative power that digital technology harnesses. We must make a global technology union for all people that will stand, serve, and protect the rights of each individual against the interlopings of all thieves; be it in the form of banks, the state, or violence itself. This is what will become the citizenship of the new society that is forming in the shell of the old.

Everything we need to change money–which changes everything–is in our hands. The only thing left to do is to build, collaborate, and create the future we must have.

“For the anarchist, freedom is not an abstract philosophical concept, but the vital concrete possibility of every human being to bring to full development all of their powers, capacities and talents with which nature has endowed them, and turn them to social account.” ― Rudolf Rocker

Introduction

Over the last several years I have worked on this body of articles in an attempt to create a cohesive Theory of Bitcoin. Here is my abstract:

The Internet is a sovereign territory that exist outside and above the control of all state governments. Due to the international nature, and economic dependence that all states have on the internet; the internet has now become a spectre that is beyond any of their control. This combine with the imperious nature of bitcoin forms a new kind of money and power that can render the state useless. This power can supplant state institutions, and allow for all people of the world to economically and politically unite in 21st century, but only if we struggle to make it so. Using the internet and bitcoin we can create an international digital sydicate that will allow for the free economic and information exchange of all people around the globe as a single political body.

I have divided my writings into three (I, II, III) distinct sections. Part one explores the legal history of money; part two covers the economic functions of bitcoin; and part three covers the radical political, social, and economic ramifications of bitcoin.

Part One

This rather long section is of necessity to understand what exactly money is and how it functions from a legal and historical standpoint. There is a long and complicated legal and economic history of money and we must have some understanding of it in order to see how money is a distinct and separate object from value. We must understand that legal power over a long history has literally striped the intrinsic value from money, and replaced it with a false idol of fiat money. This is a form of theft that is only possible through legal means. This has allowed for all States to steal from their citizenry with great sophistication and guile through their alliance with the bankers. It has been over the course of several generations that money has ever-so-slowly lost its power as an intrinsic vehicle for wealth, and been enshrined in the legalist framework of state-capitalism. It is through the State’s monopolization of the mode of exchange–money itself–which has allowed for the State to divorced fiat money from intrinsic value. This in turn has created the great number of economic issues we face today.

To divorce intrinsic value from money itself is an incredible feat for the state; however, it is not without its problems. The state can only monopolize money through force and ideology, not majesty or science. States will always be unsuccessful with the monopolization of money, and history can testify to that.

This is where understanding the mechanics of bitcoin becomes extremely important. Because of bitcoin’s known, fixed monetary supply, infinite divisibility, and imperious security through cryptography; bitcoin becomes something much more than just money, wealth, or value. Bitcoin creates a totally independent, stateless system of economic and information exchange that is pseudonymous over the internet. This is extraordinarily revolutionary, as it creates the basis for a new economic system built on top of cryptography outside of the mortality and corruption of law. This will usher in an epochal change that happens only a few times each millennial!

Once we understand the mechanics of bitcoin we can see that it is truly digital gold. And just like gold, it will be impossible to eradicate from the world. However, there is one feature that dramatically separates bitcoin from that of other commodity monies: its non-physical nature.

The power of the non-physical nature of bitcoin eludes to what I have taken to calling The Digital Sovereign. This is the real power of the internet to affect and change society from without, as a sovereign force. It is with bitcoin that the internet has an economic mode for itself. This economic mode is what will start to radicalize the internet on a whole. When the internet sees the true power that lies within it to change the world, how it can do it with its own money, there will be nothing to stop it.

Part Two

Section two mainly covers the economic functions of bitcoin. First we will explain the mathematical and cryptographic features that make bitcoin provably better money than any money that exist today. We will go into detailed analysis of the features of good moneys, and how bitcoin exudes and embodies all of those ideals in the most scientific manner. This will allow for us to go into a detailed analysis of current system of fiat monetary exchange as a commodity itself. This commodity is the network that is money. Through treating fiat money in this way, we can directly contrast and analysis it against bitcoin.

It is from this lens that we can drive a wedge between the value of money itself as a network, from the value of the legal force embedded within that money. This is explained in the first section in regards to bonitas intresica, and valors imporium. Once we can see all money as being only a network of exchange, than we can see how that network operates both inside and outside of the hands of governments, and their limited economic control.

When we take classic economic theories such as Grehmsham’s Law, Course’s Transaction Theory, and the works of Keynes, Gesell, Hayak, and combine them with the tenets of anarchism, we are given a radical new understanding of bitcoin. It is once we understand how bitcoin functions economically, and why it is superior to other forms of money, that bitcoin shows itself to be the technological tour-de-force that it is.

Finally, taking Schumpeter’s theory of creative destruction, we can see laid out before us the radical and revolutionary technological power that bitcoin will use to change the world. This is not an opinion, but a fact of economic function. This is given to us by Hayak, who offers us a glimpse into the future with liberated money. In his magnis opus “The Denationalization of Money,” he describes how a world of competitive, non-state currencies would work, and how it can answer the economic and political crises of today.

With the application of understanding bitcoin as a commodity money, we can apply classic banking practices within bitcoin to create a new form of money through transparent fractional banking. This will be the model that will allow bitcoin to become the rails of the financial system, and for bitcoin to build its own debt-based units. This will spell the doom of the contemporary banking and monetary system.

This new form of money is the bridge to the future, and is the core nexus of the ideological development that will be the next epoch of humanity: The Digital Sovereign. It will be the answer to how humans are going to solve all of the monumental and heart-wrenching issues that plague our world today. With the historical and economic ramifications of bitcoin explained from the first two sections, we can now go into the third and most important of the three sections: The political power of bitcoin.

Part Three

Bitcoin is not about money at all… it is about our core values of human-beings and what it means to be free people. Freedom is a condition and identity that is acknowledge through condition alone, and today we are not free, but we can be. Through organizing around the use of bitcoin for ALL of our economic exchange and holding of bitcoin as a form of economic resistance, we can exert true political pressure on a corrupt system through economic means. If just 1% of the world’s population would be militant enough to use bitcoin in this way, as a revolutionary tool to help people organize against the machine, it would be but a week before the system started to seize, and less than a month before it were in cataclysmic turmoil.

This is the power of revolutionary syndicalism on a transglobal scale; we can use the internet and bitcoin to organize ourselves and achieve revolutionary ends. We can organize politically, independent of one another, while having economic solitary together against our respective governments.  Using bitcoin as an economic weapon against the corrupt state-capitalist machine to which we all belong, we can realistically create dramatic change in our world. Pulling from the historic traditions of anarchism, we can ultimately organize around the theory of the general strike. This will cause for a complete collapse of the State-capitalism as we know it so we may transition to a new way forward.

This is only possible if we proactively start building towards a better tomorrow now! We must do this through the formation of a revolutionary political union, and advocate from this seemingly radical stance. Through the use of the internet as an ideological tool, we will create a new class consciousness. This class consciousness will fully contain and represent the international proletariate through the ability of all people everywhere to use, interact and organize with the internet itself; and to use bitcoin as the economic vehicle to bring about change.

The Revolutionary Vanguard of The Digital Age

“How is the discipline of the proletariat’s revolutionary party maintained? How is it tested? How is it reinforced? First, by the class-consciousness of the proletarian vanguard and by its devotion to the revolution, by its tenacity, self-sacrifice and heroism. Second, by its ability to link up, maintain the closest contact, and—if you wish—merge, in certain measure, with the broadest masses of the working people—primarily with the proletariat, but also with the non-proletarian masses of working people. Third, by the correctness of the political leadership exercised by this vanguard, by the correctness of its political strategy and tactics, provided the broad masses have seen, from their own experience, that they are correct.” -Vladimir Lenin, Left-Wing Communism: An Infantile Disorder (1920)

Vladimir Lenin was the leader of one of the most profound and powerful revolutions that the world has ever seen. Today he has been turned into little more than a goblin of the past by the powers that be. Comprised, defiled, and disposed by the masses due to a century of relentless propaganda against his ideas, and communism itself, most have never read anything of Lenin’s, but will still tell you his ideas were a failure. If we can take the time separate the filth from the facts, we can see that Lenin presented the revolutionary praxis through which the State can be destroyed. Over the course of the 15-years after Lenin released, “What is to be Done?” he build the largest vanguard party in history and destroyed one of the most powerful nation-states that ever existed. The tactic that allowed for Lenin to accomplish this is called vanguardism.

The Digital Vanguard and Proletarian Internationalism

Che Guevara To have a deeper understand of what exactly the vanguard is, we can look to international revolutionary and hero Che Guevara, who implemented Lenin’s ideas to help liberate millions across the globe:

“The vanguard group is ideologically more advanced than the mass; the masses understand the new values, but not sufficiently. While among the vanguard there has been a qualitative change that enables them to make sacrifices in their capacity as an advance guard, the masses see only part of the picture and must be subject to incentives and pressures of a certain intensity… All of this means that for total success a series of mechanisms, of revolutionary institutions, is needed.”

-Che, Man and Socialism in Cuba

What strikes me about this comment is this is the same sort of ideological position that Anonymous and other hacktivist groups have taken without exposing their statist identities. Though the ‘institutionalization’ of the revolutionary values found within digital technology, activist have been able to strip their physical bodies from the struggle, and enshrined them within digital practice. This allows for the entirety of the revolutionary vanguard to exist solely upon digital means alone. What makes this so incredible is that it allows for the fusion of anarchist and communist principals through practice alone. This practice allows for organization around the principals of strong crypto; which blinds the state, and stripped them of their ability to bring violence to revolutionaries.

The second important principal that comes from this digitization of the vanguard is the completeness in which it embraces proletarian internationalism. Through stripping our physical selves from the revolutionary praxis of the internet, we are forced to operate on only a global scale. There is no way to see our nationalities; only our mutual humanity–we can only deduce from our online interactions that the other person is human, and that is it. With the physical protection that is afford to us through this medium, it allows for us to see the full vulnerability of other humans within this system. Though we may not know the physical bodies of those we interact with, we can still see the fundamental properties that make them as flesh and blood as you and I. To see humans first and foremost as humans, and not as nationalities, sexes, races, or labor, is what forces the perspective of proletarian internationalism on to the digital vanguardism. This principal is forced upon from without, unlike communist vanguardism which vulgarizes its own principals in the name of one official power.

To Build a New Way Forward

When we can understand the internet as a revolutionary apparatus to destroy the state and usher in a new epoch based upon digital practices alone, we can see that the first two of Lenin’s principals of the vanguard have already formulated themselves. Heros like Ed Snowden and Julian Assange among many others, have seen the truly revolutionary power of the internet, and have used that power to show the world what a single human can do against the catastrophe of governments. They have set an example that shows the truly revolutionary power of the internet. This is why they have been so ruthless pursued by states, because they show how vulnerable their corrupt system is to our digital power. This power has been know for the better part of a decade, but it has only been with the advent of strong crypto that a single person can stand against the supposed omnipotence of the state; and prove that omnipotence to be little more than smoke and mirrors.

The second of Lenin’s principals (to organize with the broadest swaths of society) has been seen in the Arab Spring, and the failed Occupy uprisings. It proved that the internet can be used to communicate, and organize around revolutionary change. Since 2011 we are seeing more and more direct action being taken by hacktivist groups and individual strikes against various aspects of the state capitalism machine. Each victory in the form of data theft, a site take down against a major corporation, and the advent bitcoin all are displaying the weakness of the political-economic system. However, we also know from the aftermath of these events that the final, and most essential component of Lenin’s theory has not been enacted: Political leadership, strategy, and tactics.

The Need For A Revolutionary Vanguard

To quote Che again, “At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality. Perhaps it is one of the great dramas of the leader that he or she must combine a passionate spirit with a cold intelligence and make painful decisions without flinching. Our vanguard revolutionaries must idealize this love of the people, of the most sacred causes, and make it one and indivisible.”

We must know and understand that is through our conviction that people shall always matter more than money, that we can change the world. To know that it is we who will fight against the wicked and corrupt, that it is us that shall liberate the impoverished and smash the chains of the oppressed! We do not do this for our hatred of those who oppress us, but for the love of those that we demand to be given the freedom they are rightfully entitled to. It is only through the revolutionary zeal and infinite capacity of our love for humanity over all else, that we can create a new, and better world.

Today we have a choice: we can continue to work within the system, when all evidence points to the corruption, and impossibility of creating substantial change, or we can take it upon ourselves to start actively organizing against this system. The only way that we will be able to create revolutionary change is through embracing the third and final principal of Lenin’s revolutionary vanguard: through political leadership, strategy, and tactics to help steer the masses towards liberation. The only way that this can be done is through the open organization and promotion of revolutionary tactics against the machine. By using the power of bitcoin, and the censorship-resistant blockchain we can create an alternative economy and society that is fully outside of the hands of the state.

Bitcoin, Newspeak, and The Blockchain

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there’s no reason or excuse for committing thought-crime. It’s merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won’t be any need even for that. . . . Has it ever occurred to you that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?”

-George Orwell, 1984

Newspeak was the fictitious language of the world of 1984. It was part of the process of using propaganda to mold and manipulated thoughts and dialog of the masses. It is through the corruption, contortion, and disembowelment of words from their meanings that language itself becomes a weapon of the oppressors. They seek to create a world in which we cannot explain things as they are–they create a world in which there simply are no longer the words to do so.

It may seem like an insignificant point at first glance, but this is the exact nature of the use of the word ‘blockchain’ to replace bitcoin. Through the repeated ‘blockchain good, bitcoin bad’ rhetoric there is a slow manipulation of the facts as they truly are. They are to make bitcoin little more than a financiers plaything, not a revolutionary tool for the masses.  By divorcing the blockchain from bitcoin; bankers, financiers, and capitalist scum of all kinds are trying their damnedest to make bitcoin into a kind of technological revolution that has nothing to do with bitcoin! This is the same process that every form of personalized power has gone through at every stage of their advancement–a manipulation of the facts as they stand in order to disempower those who it would benefit from it.

Divorcing Value From Money

Money plays the greatest role in the formation of history, and it was not too long ago that most people would laugh and scoff at the idea of using paper money that was backed by nothing. Furthermore, they would think it is insane that you could not use gold or silver for a transaction–a money that has proven its worth over millennia, and has value imbued within it. Today the trillions of dollars that are circulating around the global economy are backed by nothing more than the violence of whatever state controls that money–there is no value whatsoever behind their worth paper; just the threat of their violence.

Bitcoin can be compromised in the same fashion that money itself was more than a century ago. Governments and bankers will try to take it over and tell us that it is for our own good. They will try to make the blockchain a settlement layer for themselves, while criminalizing the use and acceptance of bitcoin. This process is already underway with media conversation about bitcoin being the money criminals, hackers, pedophiles, and terrorists, while the blockchain is the ‘revolution’ that can change banking for the better.

As this conversation continues, everything will be done to attempt to delegitimatize bitcoin and drive a wedge between it and the blockchain. History will show us that people are more likely to believe that which they are told, then to go and discover for themselves what the true nature of things are. It is through this very path that everything will be done to stop bitcoin from becoming the sovereign economic power that it is destined to become, while making the blockchain into a powerful tool for only the economic elite.

Class Consciousness of The Digital Age

lukacs-class-consciousness“This means that formally the class consciousness of the bourgeoisie is geared to economic consciousness. And indeed the highest degree of unconsciousness, the crassest, form of ‘false consciousness’ always manifests itself when the conscious mastery of economic phenomena appears to be at its greatest. From the point of view of the relation of consciousness to society this contradiction is expressed as the irreconcilable antagonism between ideology and economic base. Its dialectics are grounded in the irreconcilable antagonism between the (capitalist) individual, i.e. the stereotyped individual of capitalism, and the ‘natural’ and inevitable process of development, i.e. the process not subject to consciousness. In consequence theory and practice are brought into irreconcilable opposition to each other. But the resulting dualism is anything but stable; in fact it constantly strives to harmonise principles that have been wrenched apart and thenceforth oscillate between a new ‘false’ synthesis and its subsequent cataclysmic disruption.

This internal dialectical contradiction in the class consciousness of the bourgeoisie is further aggravated by the fact that the objective limits of capitalism do not remain purely negative. That is to say that capitalism does not merely set ‘natural’ laws in motion that provoke crises which it cannot comprehend. On the contrary, those limits acquire a historical embodiment with its own consciousness and its own actions: the proletariat.”

György Lukács, History and Class Consciousness, 1923

To fully grasp the revolutionary nature of bitcoin, we first need to understand the internet and its role in forming a new class consciousness. I call this new class consciousness and its manifestation in the world The Digital Sovereign. Barley 20 years in the making, the internet is already the most powerful tool of global communication and information exchange that we have ever seen. With 3.2 billion people and growing with each day, the internet has put more people in contact with one another than at any other time in history. Digital communication is near instantaneous, access is ubiquitous and allows for a scale and magnitude of organization that has never been conceived. What unites the 3.2 billion people beyond the marketing and capitalist rubbish of the internet is a new crystallized form of class consciousness. This class consciousness is the true proletariat; the cohesive whole of humanity and the great society which contains us all.

What is Class Consciousness?

Class consciousness is the awareness of our identity as not as individuals, or even as a group, but as an entire classes of people. Historically, the class consciousness that we have been aware of since the advent of capitalism have been false consciousness based upon racial, nationalistic, religious, political; but most of all, economic consciousness. As Marx stated in, The German Ideology:

superstructure

The Base and the Superstructure

“The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas.”

Each time that we trace back the origin of prior false class consciousnesses we come to find that the ‘facts’ upon which they are based are little more than propaganda of the ruling class, only to be torn asunder by the next epoch. The only real class consciousness that we have been given by the various ruling systems is a consciousnesses of exploitation and objectification–alienation in its most sinister forms.

False Consciousnesses as Consumers and Citizens

The false consciousness that we experience in society today is based upon the process of reification; in which we develop a false identity in the reflection of the ruling system. This started long ago with the industrial development of the cultural industry being sold as mass enlightenment. As Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer explain so well, the cultural industry is a form of mass distraction and deception forced on to the whole population as bourgeois enlightenment. We were birthed into a world where for many decades the mythos of state and capitalism has reigned supreme, and crass avarice as seen as zenith of benevolence. For generations the masses have mindlessly obey the state and enthusiastically participated in capitalism. This has created a sort of stockholm syndrome of society under the barbarism of the state, and exploitation of capitalism. People truly believe that the answer to environmental catastrophe and genocide can be found within consumption and statism. Our identities are so entangled and interwoven as being subjects of both the state and capitalism that we cannot conceive any other sort of socioeconomic situation. This is where we find our common ground.

12c19-tumblr_lt4eahprsr1qlx2j3o1_500The false identities of consumer and citizen alike has made us into weak, solitary, individuals against the omnipotence of the states and markets–we are forced into roles and identities as only individuals to be exploited, not as empowered class of people who can resist. Within the system of state capitalism we cannot be autonomous, self-empowered humans; but only things to be exploited by capitalism, and subjugated by the state. This is why despite the power of the numbers that we have to actively resist such a system, there is no ‘consciousnesses’ that has formed to created such a resistance. From nearly a century of inundation and bombardment of mass culture, we no longer have any sort of a vision of what life can look like free of the state, or capitalism–the vast majority simply believe there is only a one-dimensional existence. Luckily, the revolutionary tools that will shatter these false identities, and unite us as a single people are already at play, and cannot be stopped.

Internet Sociology

The development of the internet and the formation of the social web has created a new territory. This space is unlike any other space or territory that we have ever encountered before because it is a sovereign space of non-physicality:

The axiom that the internet functions from is that it can only and explicitly exist non-physically, which is also the praxis of its inevitable success. Only expression can exist within the confines of this screen–the physical contact needed for violence and intimidation explicitly cannot exist here. Furthermore, the anonymizing properties of information dissemination via the web allows for personal discovery outside of the official indoctrination of state capitalism. These combine attributes of the internet have created the conditions for a new kind of social relation that has manifested as an ideological apparatus.

The self-interest of this apparatus (the internet) is to perpetuate itself; to freely disseminate information–that is what the internet does. This alone has made it a threat towards both the state and capitalism, however, it is the conscious organization of the internet into a political vehicle which will allow for it to defeat state capitalism. The revolutionary praxis of the internet demands for meaningful and constructive communication, which in turn is reliant on the freedom and liberty offered in this territory.

The freedom and liberty of the digital territory is not the vulgarized freedom of nation-states and capital markets, but that of an idealist one. Here is a territory in which we can all freely project our thoughts, while the physical corrosion and intimidation of the ‘real world’ cannot exist. This means that people have the freedom to both personally, and ideologically discover for themselves what the true nature of the world is for themselves through this space.

Only for so long will people fall for the ruse of state and capitalist propaganda masquerading as facts; and with each new lie this system purports acts as a testament against its own bankruptcy. In this digital territory we are stripped of our individual and state identities, and given new digital ones. This homogenization of people through the banishment of physicality, allows for us to see ourselves more as a single people than we could have ever experienced in the physical realm. The internet is what allows for us to see, organize, and interact for the first time on a truly global scale. This is the natural outcome of a world that has existed under the full weight of a century of globalized imperialist capitalism.

The Coming Digital Sovereign

This transformation of class consciousness is only in the very early stages. Even today the internet is still seen by most people as only a mode of communication which must be subservient to the state. But as we advance into the 21st century and experience the power that the internet has to shatter borders and disseminate the harshest of truths, we will find a class consciousness in that very power. As more and more people discover the radical personal empowerment the internet can offer in a world of unrelenting barbarism via state capitalism, the internet will take on the powerful ethos of the global proletariat.

The culmination of the ethos of the internet into a full social, political, and economic organization is the global proletariat; and the internet is its most powerful weapon of organization.

The internet thus far has been mostly used for the trite and vulgar needs of capitalist exploitation. The modes of power that exist to exploit individual users within the internet are present today, and they are very powerful, but so are the the modes of counter-resistance. In fact, this game of brinkmanship between the state and the individual in the digital realm has reached an end game that the state has lost. Crypto has reached sophisticated enough levels to hide the likes of men like Ed Snowden, and other whistle blowers, and there are plenty more of them to come.

Within the digital realm it is left up to individual actors to choose to what level of exploitation they will face, or how they will resist it. This is radically different from the world in which we live in. The panopticism of everyday existence forces us to conform to the will of the state capitalist system. This is what Max Weber called the iron cage. The internet is what gives us an exit, and a way to subvert this system.

It cannot be understated how powerful it is that a non-physical space can have a sociological influence on the physical world. It is within the very fact that the digital territory of the internet creates its power as The Digital Sovereign. The Leviathan of our time; the internet serves as the cohesive tool that can allow for humans to radically organize on a praxis that forces non-violent organization–the Achilles Heel of all States.

There is no immediate physical space in which violence can exert itself. The internet does this while directly influence the physical world, particularly in times of crisis. This in turn has allowed for the internet to become an ideological apparatus that will both organize and fight for its own existence, while finding solidarity for its fight in every corner of the globe. It is by no mistake that the several regimes spanning decades collapsed after the Arab Spring Revolts, which the internet was the influencing factor.

The Internet and The Global Proletariat

Slowly the interpellation of the values of the internet are overtaking that of the state. We are still subjects of our respective states, but no longer under the spell of statism. The radical values upon which the internet was created, and because of how the internet functions and influences our lives, we now have more loyalty to this territory than that of our own states. Due to the sovereignty of this territory, it has acted as a space for the radical education and dissemination of information throughout all of cyberspace, which in turn has self-propagated its own development. The truth can be demanded and told through this medium, without the direct physical oppression of states, or exploitation of capitalism.

The historical embodiment of people being used and exploited by state capitalism is now found in every person and everywhere around the globe. We have advanced so far and so deep into capitalism that there is no person, no space, or territory that has not been fully defined by capitalism. This in itself gives us a united identity as a single people through the shared exploitation and turmoil that we are all subject to under this system. With the advent of the internet and digital technology, the class consciousnesses that we all share as The International Proletariat is starting to gain momentum. It is forming itself through a variety of modes that cannot be stopped by states, or their capitalist allies. This consciousness is the pure historical information that has created the conditions of the proletariat.

The internet has made the suppression of information nearly impossible which allows for the naked facts of what is to be seen by all. This freedom of information is the bases of power for the class consciousness of the internet and the global proletariat. The free organization, collaboration, and dissemination of the facts of the world as it is, free of the propaganda of states and capitalists alike, allows for a new lens of view to come into focus: The true class consciousness of the global proletariat united through the internet.

The Reappropriation of Our Economic System

What we have been taught about money and the economic system is little more than a collection of lies, and propaganda shoved down our throats at the point of a knife. Our economy is far from being fair, or free; and we are exploited by the whims of capitalist whom have received the seal of approve from all governments. The financialization of the economy by the state started with the creation of the Federal Reserve, and finalized with the abandonment of the gold standard. This was the beginning of the end of money having independent value from governments. When governments of the world discovered at Bretton Woods that they could simply end the convertibility of gold, and all governments could move forwards with only fiat money they were exuberant. This removed the greatest check on government power that has ever exist: the power of the purse.

To Smash the Chains

resist_oppression_communism_greenThe legacy of capitalism is deep, profound, and all encompassing within our society. The reification of everything by capitalism has left no stone unturned, and has sucked every facet of life into the economic sphere. This is not the capitalism that Smith and Ricardo understood; but a distorted, anti-human Deus ex Machina careening toward the destruction of both humanity and Earth. This greatest evidence of this is in the near complete and total environmental destruction that we have experiences all over the world with the sixth great extinction of species from this planet. Indiscriminate of nationality, race, or origin; our oceans, skies, water, and land has all been polluted and raped by the powers that be. The very governments that were empowered with protecting our sacred rights were overthrown by capitalist gangsters; thugs in suits who auctioned everything off for a meager thirty pieces of silver.

The issue is not with the capitalists who only know corruption and theft–this should be expect from them most of all! The issue is with the state, politics, and the corruption that has enveloped all aspects of our social spheres. This system is corrupted and festering to the core; it cannot be saved, nor should it. The men of politics who hold themselves in such high esteem for being the negotiators of the prostitute our political system are the very ones that hold us down to be raped and used, again, and again by the capitalist machine. Our cries of consanguinity are never heard; we are little more than objects to be tolerated by them, while they exploit us to our deaths. If we are to be liberated, and free, as we were promised by our forefathers and the constitutions that govern us, than we must smash the chains of economic enslavement which we keeps us tethered to the destructive machine that we call capitalism.

To Break a Monetary System

We must harness the power of markets and entrepreneurship for the good of all, while dividing ourselves from the parasitic nature of capitalism. We must rip power away from a corrupt state which empowers a very small, exclusive class of people to the right of destroying the world of tomorrow, for a collection of trinkets today. If we are to ensure that we have something to offer to our children other than imprisonment, and a burned Earth, than we must choose to end this system of abuse now, today, and permanently.

This can be done. We have the means to break this totalitarian socio-political-economic system of the old world, and usher in a new era of global development outside of the hands of both the state, and capitalism. We can reappropriate our respective national monetary systems, for new, independent digital ones. Through this single action alone–through the reclamation of our economic power–we shall create a domino effect that shall ripple throughout the economic, political, and social structures of the world. Through using an independent money whose control and power comes from outside of the state, people can reappropriate their economic power for themselves. This will come at the direct expense of the state and capitalist who bleed us like the vampires and leeches they are. By breaking the monopolistic control of the means of exchange by the state, we shall expropriated the system of exchange, and the means of exchange itself back to its rightful owners: the general public.

We see the corruption of their system. Beneath the shimmering veneer of capitalism’s accomplishments and supposed progress, lay the untold billions of shatter lives. At its base we see that the law is nothing more that offical violence–state sanctioned terrorism with propaganda from a capitalist third estate.  To fight their violence we must use the most powerful weapon at our disposal to rid ourselves of this barbaric system:

Non-violent, direct economic action

Through simply using another form of money, we banish the violence and vicious fist of the state from the economic power that each one of us generates. No longer would the state have the ability to rob us, nor would they be able to fund their crimes, or continue their corrupt regimes. To cripple the monetary system would strike at the very heart of the corrupt state-capitalist machine, and would cause for it to come to a grinding hault.

International Money for All

bitcoin-networkEach state is invested into its own system of governance, money, and taxes so that the small powerful elite can rule over all for their own pleasure. They keep their power not through democratic means, but through oppression, division, regulations, controls, taxes, boarders, prisons, levies, and so much more. This is not for protection of the masses, but their oppression. This is not create justice, but to maintain injustice. Governments create these artificial rules and regulations so that they may steal from their people, and keep them divide and silent. We must see their petty tactics for what they are, and see the magnitudes of our own strength which we have in our numbers.

For the first time in human history we can smash these artificial boundaries and false consciousnesses of nationality and statism, and find solidarity in working together through simple rejecting their corrupt economic and political systems. There are billions of people across the global that create trillions of dollars of economic wealth each year; and yet these very same people live a life of poverty and insecurity from the exploitation they face. Through creating a new popular front against capitalist exploitation under the guise of the state, we can create a new economic and political movement that can break the bonds of debt that have enslaved us.

Using digital currencies as a political action, we can reappropriate our economic wealth away from the hands of corrupt politicians and their capitalist allies, while create a revolutionary new way forward. This single action alone can ensure that we will no longer be enslaved to the same system of debt bondage that has created the conditions of the world today. Together, as a single unite body of free people, we can banish the last vestiges of slavery from this planet for all history moving forward.

The crux of power within this system is control of the economy. This control is exerted through the monopolization of the object of exchange: Money. Governments steal fragments of the wealth from each and every person on this planet through taxation and inflation, while also give themselves the power to punish with legal violence and death to anyone who opposes this monopoly. The minders of this monopolies are the capitalist banksters, thugs who strut about in fine suits with no shame of their avarice, or the blood that taints their money. Through the direct expropriation of the system that benefits only the 1% at the expense of everyone else, we will  create better conditions for the great tide of all.

International Direct Economic Action

solidarity

We do not seek to create a party or to organize with titles and salutations; we simply demand direct action. We understand the most significant action we can take is to refuse to participate within the old economic system, while building our own independent one. Through boycotting fiat money and using digital currencies instead, we create a dual power of both economic boycott from the current system, and economic solidarity with the new emerging one.

This new system of exchange is not based upon the false nationalities that have been assigned to us, but upon the permanence of mathematics that applies to all of us. It is a form of money that is inclusive of all peoples, regardless of whatever oppressive state one may be forced to live under. Most of all, bitcoin is a form of exchange that is outside of the control of both statist scum, and capitalist pigs. It is a totally new form of money upon which we can build a new system of exchange, and an independent economic system. If we are ever to liberate ourselves from the chains of capitalism, and the impressment of debt, then building a new and independent economic outside of their control is the only way that we can move forward.

Bitcoin and other digital currencies can be the tools upon which we build this great new economic and monetary union–but only if people are willing to learn and participate. We know that there is a deep people problem with bitcoin, and that we will need to educate and agitate if we are to create a real and substantial change. This is the start of the global economic revolution that will smash down the artificial boarders that separate us, and will economically unite us against our respective oppressors. Bitcoin is the new economic Popular Front against the exploitation of capitalist, and enslavement from tyrannical state governments around the world.
