Bitcoin has gotten too big to ignore partisan politics, now regular bitcoiners will deal with the reality that hardcore cypherpunk libertarian have already known for the longest.
Reasons why I’m right, and politics neutral people and the politically ignorant are wrong:
I’m a classical political anarchist, I’ve spent my life studying the government of Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler, I know what happened, and what led to it, I understand authoritarian extremist fringe modern current groups very well, and how they can bring heat down on crypto through guilt by association, and how the government can abuse this concern trolling like Trudeau is currently doing.
Conservatives are less hostile to bitcoin because some republican politicians are being open about it. The moment Trump or Tom Cotton tells them to be hostile towards it, they will be. Bill Barr, Mnunchin, and Trump and the entire Neocon establishment are and were hostile to bitcoin.
But we have a much bigger problem, the cultural zietgeist of progressives is deeply against the thesis and purpose of bitcoin. The liberal parties of western countries believe there is always an excuse or reason for the government to intrude upon and violate not just the constitution but the very Thesis of Bitcoin itself;
They do not believe in the right to censorship resistance, confiscation resistance, and radical financial sovereignty and self custody, they want backdoors, and they want to violate your freedom of assembly, property, and speech, they are becoming radicalized and anti-liberal in the process. I consider them the “Blue Stack” a fascist merger of colluding government agencies, NGO, corporate press, and extreme tech conglomerates operating in sync to censor and depatform people.
Bitcoin cannot survive with one party, with only conservative parties, even if the average progressive is hardline opposed to the separation of the state and money, we must \*CO-OPT and Control The Liberal Parties of the West\*
\*We Must Co-opt and Control The Liberal Parties Of The West\*
\*We Must Get anti-crypto Candidates Knocked Out of the Running, and Pro Bitcoin Pro Self-Custody Candidates Elected\*
The cultural zeitgeist of western liberal parties is about as anti-cypherpunk as imaginable now, they will call anyone a Nazi, and do anything to censor you, they are on a clear trajectory towards extreme tyranny and abuses of the lack of constitutional restraint, we cannot let them continue forward in this manner.
