Those

gullible idiots

seem to reside all over in managing whole countries, central banks, the stock-exchanges, etc. etc. etc.

…with most of 'em trying to fill their own pockets!

Of course, but that’s exactly my point - cryptocurrency (well very few of them actually, but it’s beyond the point) gives you an instruments and ability to have full financial independence from anyone at all, even from governments. Unless some madman would completely turn off internet worldwide, which is very unlikely so far.

That is actually the only real reason to use cryptocurrency at all, to cut loose of those idiots :rofl:

In so far, only in (duly marketed) theory!

Which leads me to think of other, historically failed utopias… like socialism praticed 100 yrs. ago.

(The blockchain’s been a pipe crap from the beginning, if you ask me.)

Well…Solely depends on how deep you personally wish to go.
Like i’ve said, if you’re smart about how and what you’re doing - it’s definitely very possible right now.

I may or may not live like that for years, but you would never know for sure :male_detective:

And only point of complete and utter failure would be absence of internet worldwide…At which point i bet humanity will have some bigger problems anyway :rofl:

God forbid, it’s completely opposite idea :rofl:

That remains so for folks looking outward (not inward)…

Sorry, not sure i follow…? :thinking:

I don’t see anything remotely soycialistic about real crypto, unless you mean some new government issued surveillance social credit score currencies that will replace cash, cards etc, which :clown_face: :earth_africa: will surely do at some point…
It’s an open secret now.

But that doesn’t change the fact of your independence when using real crypto completely anonymously out of that loop, which you can “cash out” anonymously to whatever the <insert_new_fiat> will be acceptable anyway, as long as there are decentralized anonymous exchanges (in other words the internet :joy:) exist, to outside powers such a transaction (at worst) would look exactly the same as someone sending some currency to a bank card.

It really doesn’t matter what form fiat money would take in the future.


However what i describe above clearly will not be used by everyone to create some kind of utopia, it’s just impossible coz people not reading BTC and XMR whitepapers along with Whonix manuals, instead most of them just fear-porn on good old NPC MSM train. :clown_face:

And that’s a real shame in my opinion, our world would be much more free if most people would just refuse to participate in money monopoly of governments, theft through taxes etc.

That way the only monopoly of control governments would have is violence :sweat_smile:
But that’s another story, that forum policy doesn’t appreciate deep political and philosophical subjects.

What’d I say? Utopia it was, wasn’t it?

I know, and I wasn’t trying to get into these.

Instead, trying to point to our all-common source, the ‘inside’.

Trying an explainer:
What good is all money if our last shirt does not have any pockets?

No not really, coz as i’ve mentioned above that paragraph - it’s just not possible…

So that’s why i don’t even consider it at all, being pragmatic. Doesn’t matter at all what i or you think on the subject - that just ain’t happening, coz people are what they are and will be, it’s absurd idea to think that any knowledge would change nature of subject…Unless it’s a very very very very long run :clown_face:

It’s just a key to a right door, but no one can force it :laughing:

Oh, i got you now :wink:

Native Americans urge Apache Software Foundation to ditch its name

Open source org called out for ignoring own code of conduct

Tiktok has built a new Barbie-fier, which clearly outperforms previous filters in terms of quality.

The next generation of deepfakes will probably look much more credible.

And it’s hard to imagine what the porn industry will do with this technology. Soon you’ll probably have a character creator like in video games, where you can click on what the actors should look like, and the AI will paste it over using raw motion capture data. I’m sure various startups are already working on this.

I’m also curious about the new questions that will arise. Can one still claim the right to one’s own image if there is nothing left of one’s own image because software has manipulated it? That would have consequences for the traceability of Revenge Porn, for example.

This is just another reason why i do not like TiK Tok and every other social media platform out there. They are the scourge of the Internet. Do you know what harm this does to young women and girls. I can see this technology being used in the right environment but here is not the place. It’s no wonder so many young people develop depression and other issues related to always being compared to something other than who they are. I think it’s pathetic that we as a society put up with this garbage!

Seems yer getting old?! - Nah, just jokin’…
My daughter of 15 is all into these things. Being beautiful is everything that counts for her. Well, not just everything… I hope she’ll grow out of such puberty-related flaws soon! :wink:

I’m just advising you that it can be very harmful to young girls at that age and younger or older doesn’t matter. I would be very open and transparent if i were you and have some discussions if that were my daughter about things with a little bit of probing so that they are aware and have knowledge and you get some feedback. Knowing your kids is also about keeping them safe from, the traps of these kind of things that draw young minds in and they become addicted to and overwhelmed by the sentimentalization that these platforms push onto these younger audiences via algorithms and tools such as this. I just don’t think it’s healthy in my opinion.

I am well aware of this. Thanks for that response. Think she’s just doing fine, and we have frequent contact, and discuss things together, and I have great trust in her abilities to differentiate and to judge right from wrong. More than probably many of her associates. It is something most all her peers are infested with. She’s aware of it, and so am I. … :v:

Well that’s good to hear. We can’t always be there to protect them and we just need to install upon them the knowledge and wisdom so that they know how to make good choices. Life is hard and the path we follow can bring much joy and happiness or sadness not always by choice. We just want the best and strive to educate them also. Having a good open honest relationship is key to giving them strength in their ability to make their own good decisions. :wink:
