Debate: Should Bitcoin Be Regulated By Centralized Governments? [VIDEO]

Government is a propaganda scheme to brainwash people so they forget they own themselves.

Look at the etymology of the word—”govern”, which in Latin is “guvernare”, meaning to control, and “ment” is “mentis”, meaning “mind”—to control the mind.

It’s mind control to convince you that your enslavement is for your own good.

I’ve spoken all across the world and regularly ask audiences if they believe they own themselves.

Even in the 21st century, the human psyche has yet to break free from this archaic, “socially-contracted” babysitter called the (nanny) state.

So when I’m on stage debating an opponent who claims to love and embrace cryptocurrency, I’m not too surprised to hear them advocating to increase the state’s power.

I recently traveled to Tel Aviv to present and debate at the Israel Bitcoin Summit. Gidi Bar Zakay, a former regulator, is a fairly eloquent speaker, but took the position that the way forward for crypto is through government regulation. It’s a juxtaposition that baffles most libertarians who’ve been interested in bitcoin for reasons beyond investing.

Cryptocurrencies are, by design, meant to be free—free from central planners and regulators, yes. That means, free from the state. It’s the most important feature!

Yet sometimes, the only way forward is to take a leap—not unlike Indiana Jones when, upon traversing that large chasm, had to step blindly–yet faithfully–onto the invisible bridge.

As I explained to Crypto Insider, the beauty and power of cryptocurrencies is that they regulate themselves.

One thing I make very clear in the debate is my belief that humanity is at a crossroads—a fork in the road where for the first time in a long time, we can choose our destiny.

Of course, one path will lead to an Orwellian fascist takeover of reality…

The other path, however, can be unchained freedom, innovation, progress, and prosperity like the human race has never seen.

Years ago, I would’ve thought the hopeful option was impossible. But thanks to the internet and cryptocurrencies, never have I held more optimism.

The annual Anarchapulco gatherings have revealed to me how much promise there is in the human spirit. As The World’s Premier Liberty Event, Anarchapulco has brought together incredible thought-leaders and the most remarkable people from all over the planet to build tomorrow’s communities today.

In just a few weeks, we’re set to break all previous attendance records with a stunning lineup of guest speakers, including Ron Paul, Andrew Napolitano, Cynthia McKinney, David Icke, and many more.

The Free Your Family Camp will even offer fun and educational activities for all ages. A few tickets are still available, so be sure to book now before it’s too late.

Our Cryptopulco stage will feature some of the most prolific professionals in blockchain tech, and yes, anarchists have rented out the entire Princess Mundo Imperial resort—you don’t want to miss this.
