There once was a man from Edmonton, Alberta…
His name was SEK3, an agorist assertor.
He believed in counter-economics,
And hated all commies.
Said a free market system’d never hurt ya.
Seemingly overnight, Wall Street and Silicon Valley (read pro-legacy banksters and elite BigTech) have come out in favor of the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies into the economy.
And the crowd goes wild: “In mainstream we trust, and if they want in, surely Bitcoin is a safe, sure thing.”
But you see, that’s not the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Actually it’s nothing like the truth at all. Because the one thing, above all other things, that totalitarian authorities, communists and fascists hate is the concept of competition. Which, of course, is the basis of the free market.
Make love, not war
The 70s weren’t all about free love. It was also a time of deep reflection on everything that’s wrong with society, and, perhaps, the most outspoken generation in respect of not being satisfied with the status quo of being told what to do, what to think and how to think. (Or to think at all)
To quote from an article written by Jeff Riggenbach and published on the Mises Institute website (mises.org): “The natural leaders of this first generation of modern libertarians — those with the talent, the charisma, the vitality, the drive to move, figuratively speaking, to the front of the group and attract attention to themselves and their accomplishments — began to emerge during the 1970s.”
The seventies became the stage for guys like Murray N. Rothbard and Harry Browne, as well as Samuel Edward Konkin III (later known as SEK3), who coined the terms “minarchist”, “Browne-outs” and “Koctopus”.
What does this have to do with cryptocurrency in its current form?
Pretty much everything. You see, SEK3 was a true believer in individual freedom against government intervention. As a so-called “new libertarian”, he came up with the concept of a voluntary, free market society based on counter-economics, in which people can freely live their values without violence and coercion by others.
His main objective of agorism was to foster voluntary interactions in the marketplace governed by logic and self-ownership – to counter the excessive involvement of governments in shaping human interactions within the economy.
If you think the banksters and corporate elitists creeping into the world of cryptocurrency is a good thing, think again. It’s all about control – of you, your privacy, your money and your life. The system is rigged. And if you don’t understand why I’m saying this, today’s video is a must-watch. (Hint: I also give away my vote for the shittiest shitcoin on the market)
Another way to understand why you’re probably already an agorist and don’t even know it, is to attend the TCV Virtual Summit on February 4th – 5th and meet speakers like Dr. Daniel Kim, who is without a doubt one of the world’s smartest experts on Monero and how it preserves your individual control, liberty and rights.
Wake up, don’t fall for the mainstream hype, do your own research and be a decent person.
