Investment can be beautiful

Art is meant to be seen, so I though I'd share mine with you. These pieces were created by Max Mellenbruch, with contributions from other artists (including myself). What I love about physicals is their unique ability to open up the world of Bitcoin by allowing a person to hold value in their hand (like a gold bar). A Kialara  is a fusion of tech and visual expression, which makes it the most beautiful investment in your portfolio.

It’s not that there’s no jobs, it’s that your standards are too high

people don't want to work

This is for the American youth. I found a job for you! It's at an indoor mushroom farm. Eight hours of walking up and down isles of manure, in humid stink, picking Chanterelles.

A place like this only hires immigrants; not because they can be exploited or paid less, but because they're the only ones willing to work. The mushroom farm mentioned sponsors individuals from countries like Ukraine, gets them a two year work visa, and gives them accommodation and health coverage.

Alas, the American worker has been diluted. At its infancy, America harvested the most spirited Europeans, who built her to be magnificent. But as the Mongol raiders of the steppe learned, the decadent lifestyle of just a few generations will jelly anyone's spine.

Unemployment numbers are high not because there's no jobs, they're high because young Americans don't want to do unskilled labour; mopping up blood at a slaughterhouse would be an assault on their self-esteem. Young Americans want the good jobs that they were promised! But they never considered that employers may want good employees. Unemployment has become a bigger issue for the employer; businesses are having a difficult time scaling because finding skilled, competent workers has become their largest expense. 

Let me rephrase my earlier claim. Unemployment is high because young Americans don't need to do unskilled labour. Most parents will never sacrifice their child's accustomed standard of living, so there isn't much consequence for being willfully unemployed. Most young Americans can afford to be choosy (on their parents' dollar). 

This is actually a good sign. If a society is efficient and productive, leisure time is supposed to increase. The problem is these people are complaining. On a weekday night, at most bars, you can hear the buzzing of discontented college graduates whining about there being no jobs, while enjoying the leisure time they granted themselves by opting out of jobs they didn't like. They also tweet. And rally. And vote. And then you get socialism. 

What we have in the west is not unemployment, it's joblessness. The former implies the willingness to work, the latter does not. 

The takeaway 

#1  If you haven't considered cleaning toilets, it means you don't REALLY need a job. Be happy about that

#2  To get a good job, you need a valuable skill set [1] 

#3  Having a degree does not mean you have a valuable skill set

#4  Work a shitty job, it builds character


[1] does not apply to government work. If you're a government worker, you won't be unemployed, but you will be unimportant. 

The Men’s Rights Movement

men's movement decline

There's an epidemic of women slipping rape drug & viagra concoctions into men's drinks & carrying them home for some good ol' female on male rape. Not to mention, 50% of gang bangs are orchestrated by groups of women against a man. It goes underreported because society deems it embarrassing.

Reputable survey says: dead wife initiated violence against her husband! 

The pomeranian is more aggresive but it's the pitbull that's banned. Much injustice. 

Donate to stop the hurt today. 

The men's rights movement! Fighting for the right to be just as shitty as radical feminists!

The men's rights movement started out as a rational, reactionary move against radical feminism and the resulting gradual dismissal of males within western society. I go over what I consider to be their best contributions, and their worst. I hope the MRM does not continue to slip into radicalization, mirroring the fate of feminism, the very thing they are trying to balance. Both movements want equality for genders that are not equal. Both movements are vile denials of observable biological truths.

My Love Affair With Superintendent Lawsky

I first heard of Ben Lawsky after the initial draft of the BitLicense. As an advocate for financial freedom and supporter of Bitcoin, I joined Tone Vays in creating a parody of this document (the IntLicense), comparing it to the Telecommunications license of 1994. This forced me to read and re-read the Bitlicense more times than I thought I would have liked. But something unexpected happened as the words of force flashed before me. I recognized a kind of poeticism in the language. How can a Government document capture the struggle of the human condition in such a spellbound way?

"Section 200.3 License (a) License required. No Person shall, without a license obtained from the superintendent as provided in this Part, engage in any Virtual Currency Business Activity."

Then I realized…it's not the document speaking to me, it's Lawsky. What happened next was something I have been struggling with for months; I began to fall in love with Benjamin. 

At first I buried my emotions, taking the rage I was feeling for myself out on him. I trolled him on twitter, criticized him publicly, made rude memes of him for r/Bitcoin. But as I did all this, my fondness grew stronger. 

I began spending hours looking upon his image.

That smooth countenance, which holds a humbling gaze shared only by the likes of Gandhi. That hair, which echoes a young Jon Favreau. Those perfectly proportionate ears…all the better to hear us with. 

bitlicenseBen, I know you are a deep, free-thinking, peaceful person, who is simply caught in the confusion of these desperate times. Perhaps you feel inadequate, small even, and working for the NYDFS reinforces your existence? But there is no need for this. Use your words for good, use your mind for good. I can help you believe in yourself.

This is me bearing my soul. Lawsky, unlike Bitcoin, your kiss can take me to the moon.

How to Soft Kill Americans

american government killing citizens

Welcome to this comprehensive guide. In the next few minutes I will outline how the American Government uses the soft kill technique to commit the indirect murder of citizens without liability. 

There are simple ways to kill US citizens, such as sending them off to war, or becoming a cop. Did you know that cops kill an average of 928 people a year? 

But this is what you call "hard kills." Although highly efficient, hard killing is indecent, and can backfire with public outrage. 

What we're going to be discussing in this video is "soft killing," which is a much more powerful strategy for several reasons.

It's hard to quantify, which keeps it discreet, and it's very easy to disguise under laws and regulations. If done right, soft killing can become part of the societal norm, and last multi-generationaly. 

So if a hard kill is like a shot in the face, then a soft kill is like poisoning the well.

Now that we have an understanding of what a soft kill is, let's get pragmatic. 

The best way to soft kill populations is by targeting their most beloved, addictive activities: Sexual intercourse and Narcotics.

For example. There was a website called RedBook. Redbook was a thriving marketplace for sex workers. It had reviews, ratings, reputation systems, sexual safety info, and forums discussing anything from fetishism to libertarian philosophy. The site was used by many johns of course, but more importantly, it was used by sex workers to make sure their work environment would be safe. Not only did prostitutes never have to leave their home, avoiding exploitation by pimps and dangerous situations like getting into strangers cars, but they could also warn each other of bad clients using the website.

The IRS and FBI shut the website down in 2014, thus executing a perfect soft kill. Let me illustrate further. 

This is one of our case files. Her name is Racheal. "Recently Rachel's customers have tended to be men she meets offline, guys just milling about or driving around the neighborhood, looking for action. She doesn't like walking the streets, because it's tiring and scary, and she especially hates doing car dates because they're dangerous. But the reality is that she's had to do more of both since RedBook closed. 'I still have a couple friends from the site who get in touch, but not many,' she says. 'I hope another RedBook comes around at some point. It made life a lot easier.'”

The average lifespan of a street prostitute is 34 years. So Racheal will most likely be dead soon. Soft Kill executed. And that's only 1 of many.

Let's take a look at another excellent example. The SilkRoad was a website that allowed peer-to-peer transactions of mostly narcotics. Like RedBook, it took dangerous activity off the street, reducing exploitation by gangs and dealers. It also provided a rating and reputation system so the likelihood of getting bad batches of drugs was low. It too had a thriving community and forums and even utilized a violence free currency called bitcoin. The site prided itself on not allowing the sale of anything with the sole purpose of hurting someone, like stolen credit cards, or child pornography. The US Gov shut it down in 2013. After this, many other sites were created, with much more flexible moral rules. 

This again is an excellent soft kill as it forces drugs back on the street or to shadier websites that don't care about the well-being of persons. 

See, the purpose of shutting down these sites is not so people can't have sex or do drugs, it's so people can't do it safely.
