As to the evil which results from censorship, it is impossible to measure it, because it is impossible to tell where it ends.

“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”

I need a sofa and have been blown away buy the price of them. I found a real beauty but it would have meant having to sell some Btc, which I just couldn't do.

So I found an affordable second hand one, which, with some new covers, will be fine. Bitcoin left unscathed.

Savings used to be about growing your capital, but the banks broke that. So spending savings doesn't mean anything anymore. Bitcoin teaches you about savings again.

Oh and JPM can suck my Bitcoin!

“Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.”
― G.I. Gurdjieff

Fiat currency is a tyranny. A tyranny that controls all of ours lives. Bitcoin is the cure for that crime. Bitcoin is the silver bullet, the stake to the heart, the saviour of the suppressed populations of the world, who have suffered untold misery because of tyranny that the controllers of the Fiat wield. Fiat can thrash about, it can shout, it can complain, but it's dying and soon the tyranny will be over. Long live Bitcoin .. short the criminal cartel of the vampire squid of Fiat of bankers.

The art of not reading is an important one.

It consists in not taking an interest in whatever maybe engaging the attention of the general public at any particular time.

When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools, always finds a large public.

A precondition for reading good books, is not reading bad ones: for life is too short.

Should I have bought Bitcoin instead? BTC mining is VERY HARD! via @YouTube

Went to one of my local shops today, to find it closed, with this sign on the door.

In existing criminology there are concepts: a criminal man, a criminal profession, a criminal society, a criminal sect, and a criminal tribe, but there is no concept of a criminal state, or a criminal government, or criminal legislation. Consequently what is often regarded as "political" activity is in fact a criminal activity.
P.D. Ouspensky

The majority of men... are not capable of thinking, but only of believing, and... are not accessible to reason, but only to authority.
Arthur Schopenhauer

"For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.”
