hier wieder so eine schöne arte-doku in der aufgezeigt wird wie wissenschaftliche ergebnisse auf konzerninteressen hingetrimmt werden. (im falle von corona geschieht sowas natürlich gar - nicht!)
Dear #Fediverse aka the awesome socially aware #Mastodon community! Have you been following Disha Ravi a founding member of #FridaysforFuture #India ? She has been arrested on dubious charges which violate basic human #rights of #Freedom and #Privacy . Its a death knell for all kinds of #activism which can happen in the country. Now parents are scared of children expressing their 'political opnion' online! 😱 #freiheit #digitalrights @digitalcourage #climate #green #Aktivismus
IP is not the same. IP is saying you own information that another person might hold. Bitcoin is provably yours and not theirs. No external force. No threat of harm. It functions as a natural, real commodity.
Premise: property must be physical.
Counter: property is ownership, and often property is owned by deed.
Bitcoin is never held by a person. You own the deed, which is the UTXO that assigned bitcoin to your address. You prove you own the deed with your private key. Bitcoin never move at all, only ownership moves.
Let me argue that anarchism, which promotes violence and terror against living beings to coercively reach its goals, doesn't make sense.
Because you cannot liberate someone from an oppression by the means of violence against humans, where the oppression is not based on violence.
Where it is based on disinformation, economic power, laws, education, conditioning, culture, fear, other emotional manipulation, those foundations have each to be destructed accordingly.
Used to be illegal NOT to grow hemp in the UK - bring back Henry VIII. 🙂
Hemp used to be a common crop grown in the UK. In 1535 Henry VIII required all farmers to sow quarter of an acre of hemp for every 60 acres they owned. Hemp was valued for its rot-resistance and salt-water resistant properties making it particularly useful in the production of sails and rope for the navy.
@h4890 I'm a broken record here, but IMO, what's most important to me is that people dump fiat and move to crypto. In so doing fiat loses it's value and hence all governments lose power too - including the power to regulate crypto.
In the longer run, there will be solutions to solidly locking out tracking of trade and the flow of money. So for me this mastercard join is just another nail in the coffin of fiat and the State.
MasterCard Joins Visa, PayPal On The Crypto Payments Bandwagon
Skeptic: so you bought bitcoin! WTF are you gonna DO with it?
Me: ANYTHING I WANT.
Telling people not to use an adblocker is a tough sell with these facts. If you feel adblockers are threatening authors incomes or anything like that you should wonder how to fix this instead of doing "but please disable your adblocker" campaigns. https://www.debugbear.com/blog/2020-chrome-extension-performance-report#performance-impact-of-ad-blockers
I'm calling strawman. Steady reliable demand for energy is better for renewables which have lower marginal cost of production. Long term probably net positive.
BUT even if all of that energy were produced with coal, the fact is a lot of very bad very powerful people are losing their grip over society and they are pissed.
All of the newspapers which haven't been profitable for 20 years are cranking out the same talking points.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
