On Tulip Manias and Fragility in our Nascent Democracy.The Future of Us: ZeroNet @ TED2017

The Future of Us: ZeroNet @ TED2017

In last December I got a totally unexpected email, that had an invitation to give a 18 minute talk in front of 2000 people in a very big and a famous event in Vancouver, Canada: on the next TED conference.

The distributed web is above all about Democracy. There are many watered down versions of democracy and also models of governance calling themselves democratic which are nothing of the sort. Your Platform, IPFS and Swarm and others I have not heard of, I am sure.,are at the Elite end of Computing. Within the proprietary software model even distributed systems would leave existing Elite hierarchies in control manipulating and rationing information and access to the fruits of what we call Society or civilisation.
Richard Stallman the founder of GNU describes what free software is.
´´Free software means the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.Free software is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech”, not as in “free beer”.
More precisely, free software means users of a program have the four essential freedoms:
  • The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0).
  • The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
  • The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
  • The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
Developments in technology and network use have made these freedoms even more important now than they were in 1983.
Nowadays the free software movement goes far beyond developing the GNU system. See the Free Software Foundation’s web site for more about what we do, and a list of ways you can help. we are free it is easier to see the scams or to challenge the validity of restrictions placed upon us by those who assume authority. This project and other distributed computing can make freedom meaningful in our, Media our Politics and our money these 3 are the interfaces through which we conduct our social and business relations.

On Tulip Manias and Fragility in our Nascent Democracy.for ethereum to have utility as a means of exchange what is needed is stability, money has several functions Store of Value means of exchange and unit of account being the most well known. The idea of Bitcoin and ethereum being in competition is unhealthy for both. Both currencies are complementary and their chief predator and enemy is FIAT money or Central Banks and issuers of FIAT money credit. Ether and Bitcoin are vanishingly insignificant in the context of the Trillion dollars Global FIAT derivatives market. Money is by definition debt in the current system and both Ether and Bitcoin are pegged to FIAT currencies and hence debt. The size of the FIAT debt market dwarves Bitcoin and Ether and they are both highly vulnerable to market manipulation, as such they are merely tolerated. As long as they are seen speculatively there is a potential problem but, if Cryptocurrency generally is seen as a complementary alternative system that is symbiotically connected and mutually supporting outside of a FIAT money framework then real value and enduring value will be created and become
un-manipulated by the structured/rigged and Coercive FIAT debt ´´Markets```
Here are two blogs I did on Ether and Bitcoin over a year ago. Both Ether and Bitcoin are and have been in Bubble territory, diversification and balanced portfolios rule in what is a highly volatile and As I say very very small and therefore highly manipulated market place. Remember, Money and Value is make believe so have lots and lots of dreams, not just one.

Importantly investigative journalism can not be sidelined and memory holed as easily as it is today.
We are though as long as we use the main search engines slaves to Googles Algorithms, we are cursed to live in Googles echo chamber of our own thoughts manipulated and perverted by their masters at the CIA, NSA and FBI, GCHQ and a whole salad of spook acronyms.

Roger Lewis7 April 2017 at 12:56 Syria is all about Gas, not poison Sarin Gas but Gas Pipelines. It is also not about Hydro Carbons in themselves but the market for hydrocarbons and which currency contracts of supply are settled in otherwise known  as,  US petrodollar hegemony.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …

Things are really hotting up on the Future Prospects of the Petro Dollar. Climate Change particularly the AGW CO2 Narrative is clung to with religious zeal and promoted by Finance Elites, why is that?
