I’ll Take That – BitMEX Blog
Bitcoin is less than a decade old, and is still very much an experiment. But if you possess a sum of wealth, it is prudent to diversify the networks used to secure it. Many people believe if they follow the “law”, they will be alright. However, laws change to serve the growth and power of the government writing them.

A Psychological Analysis of How and Why Corporations Become SJW-Converged
But in the age of social media, the story gets worse. Not only can an organization sic these righteous little foot-soldiers on their internal critics, they have learned to sic them on external critics as well. Thanks to mob strongholds like Twitter and Facebook, an effectively world-wide network of SJW miscreants can be spontaneously compelled to form outrage mobs against a corporation’s external critics. In a way, you have to respect the efficacy of such a potent and adaptive force.

» La fin de l’empire, par Chris Hedges
Malgré l’aura souvent projetée par la toute-puissance des empires, la plupart sont étonnamment fragiles et manquent de la force inhérente d’un État-nation, même modeste. En effet, un coup d’œil à leur histoire devrait nous rappeler que les plus grands d’entre eux sont susceptibles de s’effondrer pour des causes diverses, les pressions budgétaires constituant généralement un facteur primordial.

Economics of Bitcoin as a Settlement Network | Satoshi Nakamoto Institute
An interesting thought experiment is to imagine the shape of a global economic system built around settlement in Bitcoin. Bitcoin’s current capacity is to verify around 350,000 transactions per day. This number of transactions can allow a global network of 850 banks to each have one daily transaction with every other bank on the network. (The number of unique connections in a network equals n(n-1)/2, where n is the number of nodes.)

He merely invoked Article 48 of the Weimar Republic's constitution, allowing the state, in the interests of the greater good, to set — what's the phrase? — "reasonable limits" on freedom of the press, freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom from unlawful search and seizure and surveillance of postal and electronic communications. The Nazis didn't invent a dictatorship out of whole cloth. They merely took advantage of the illiberal provisions of a supposedly liberal constitution.
