Bitcoiners are often insulted because "they're not working"
But many just work smartly & refuse the modern dictatorship to work for work's sake
They're using the rest of their time in a way that Classics would call "σχολή" in Greek & "Otium" in Latin

They were all noble activities like learning philosophy & sciences, physical activities, discussions & disputations

We can stretch the point further:
Socials could be the modern version of the agora. Where they discussed publicly important matters

@mir_btc I was working limited hours, avoiding offices and ignoring most of the rat race long before I heard of Bitcoin. As did the lucky few Romans and Greeks who could afford to (most humans were slaves back then).

Part of it is luck (having the right skill set at the right time), but plenty of others have more skill and do work full time in dreadful jobs. So at least in part it's a choice.


@sjors I agree, it's partly a choice in most of the cases. Plus, bitcoin it's an unprecedented opportunity for many to have even more freedom of choice
