I'm arguing that crypto is just as dependent as every other form of currency
Which is incorrect, and you can easily look that up. Or you can attempt to prove me wrong by doing one of the following:
- Withdraw all the money in your bank account at once, half in digital form and half in physical form.
- Buy something the government or banks don't want you to buy
- Make an instant transfer to someone who's in a different country
- Restrict access to your wealth by securing it with your own private key that nobody has access to.
- Run your own wallet node, allowing you to access and manage your wallet even when internet connectivity is down.
- Pay someone when power is out and your phone is discharged, by simply firing up your gasoline powered car and plug your phone into any 12V usb socket.
None of that is possible with fiat banking.
And that you unironically post in a online forum, so you can argue with people on the other side of the world. Something tells me you're more dependent on the system than you want to admit. Except you live in denial, which means your entire digital presence is fully dependent on centralized services.
The problem is the swamp speculating on every asset there is. Look up "futures markets", biggest fuckery in history in terms of speculation and theft of whatever little people have left in assets.
The solution is to hold assets, if they try to tell you that your assets have low value, therefore you should sell them. Don't believe them. They're lying. Your assets will always have about the same value, no matter what it's valued in fake fiat currency.
Your car is valuable because you use it to get from A to B, there's never more or less value in transportation, it's a need you have to fulfill in order to survive or to have a decent life. Same with your house, it keeps you warm and safe. That value never goes away.
All crypto does is to offer digital assets, with this important property of value you don't get from centralized services, but with better redundancy than you get from a fully self hosted environment.
Switzerland is a direct democracy, they can implement restrictions like that short term by the will of the people, and most likely through populist anti-gun campaigns.
The very same way, they can just as easily revoke those restrictions, once they realize they didn't work as fake news media told them it would.
As for armed countries in Europe in general, whether it's Switzerland, the Nordics or East, open carry was never very common. Most guns are for specific purposes like hunting, shooting ranges and in some cases self defense, in which case they're stored at home safely.
Should crime go up there and the police have trouble to show up in time, then support for open carry will increase and it will most likely be legalized. Just like rural areas is encouraged to have their own well for drinking water instead of relying on the city's water grid.
Every war is a bankers war. Bankers and israel tell Americans to fear the invisible enemy, someone who's supposedly a threat to America. Nobody could ever conquer America with force thanks to the high amount of armed civilians.
This is why the cold war never ended in a Soviet invasion, why China is using economical and biological warfare, and israel is conquering from within.
America needs to go America first, don't waste American lives fighting fore these ungrateful piss diapers and their perverted dreams of a enslaved America. The world support Americans who are America first because it benefits everyone. Especially the countries who just want to live in peace but can't because israel is pushing them down using American muscle.
but then they went too far.
This is what the fake historians want us all to think. This is why $3.3B are paid in reparations to israel every year, only from the US. Germany pays a lot to. They don't want us to remember the good stuff because it's such a simple fix that would make all of our lives great, debt free and enjoyable.
Especially the US deep state is very afraid of Americans learning the truth. As not only would they know their own government made them fight against God and Jesus Christ in order to support fag,s trannies, degenerates and Satanists. Most Americans didn't want to go to war, those who knew what was truly going on where ready to support Hitler in his fight against communism.
There has to be a solution for this too, with artificially inflated house prices they automatically increase property taxes based on a fake value of the house. I can see how this phenomena itself will force many of the last independent people to sell everything they own, move into a pod and eat bugs.
Germany didn't have conservatives, the alternative was Sozis (globohomo socialists supporting degeneracy) or outright communism. They also abandoned the central banking slavery system which is a huge plus. The Germans where lucky, then America ruined it all.
You'll love the original more then, but joking aside you really should learn about cryptocurrency as an asset. The usage areas are unlimited if you care about privacy, free speech, secure and private communication, no middlemen in the digital space, local storage of digital assets and much much more.
Speculation is done to every asset today, metals, stocks, crypto, cars, houses, energy, water etc. They even have futures markets which allows a form of speculation that makes every asset volatile in value. To use that as an excuse to dump everything you own in exchange for dollars is both dangerous and retarded.
Now I'm not saying you need to get into crypto, or even understand it. But whatever you do, make sure that you own assets, that is land, some animals, an off grid house with wooden stove and wood burner, a vegetable garden, your own water well, horses and bicycles. Anything that will help you not ending up living in a pod, which will happen very soon if you only have dollars and debt now.
The original is about the merchant buying chickens and cows instead of monkeys. Then he can overcharge on milk and eggs because now he controls the supply. Meanwhile everyone is stuck with their worthless dollar bills that are now only good as toilet paper.
Dumb people would sell their cows and chickens for "the right price". You just choose monkeys because everyone knows monkeys are worthless.
The analogy is stupid, which you partially proved in your comment.
First of all, nowadays the merchant runs the same scheme on every asset, that's the whole point of fiat currency. Enrich a few on the top with all the assets while the people lose all the asset they own, because they sold them for fiat.
Secondly, real world use does create value. However, gold and silver are primarily used in electronic hardware, hence the huge demand in this modern world. Should something happen to the power grid or worldwide internet connectivity, demand will go down and we're back to a pre 1800 society anyway.
However, with internet and power grids functional and more redundant both metals and crypto will have value. What if you wanna communicate without getting censored? What if you wanna buy something online without paying tax to WEF or have your transaction blocked? What if you need to cross a border, as in simply leaving your neighborhood, which means you're gonna have to pass a check where they do a full anal search, you can't bring metals throughout such check without having it seized. You need crypto when you're getting the hell out of that Orwellian place.
