Simply Bitcoin” hosts Nico and Phil signed up with the “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast” for a conversation about censorship and international occasions.
Starting the podcast off with liberty at the leading edge, the hosts of “Simply Bitcoin” state, “I think Bitcoin is going to usher in this mental idea that no human being should have the right to censor another human being’s speech. Period. And speech includes your ability to transact with somebody else.”
They go on to presume that Bitcoin might be the Trojan horse for a decentralized web since interactions can go from a single person to a server to another individual with Bitcoin nodes functioning as that server, rather of a central center.
The speakers proceed to discuss their issues about product costs and how those connect to the increasing expenses of whatever else. When oil costs increase, the rate of shipping items increases, leading to increased costs. Wheat is another product that affects the international food supply. Food shortage and the taking place cravings can result in social discontent which might cause Orweillian implies of control responding to actions of starving residents. Phil and Nico acknowledge that even discussing this possibility makes them seem like conspiracy theorists.
Phil and Nico make the strong claim, “In 2003, if social media was around, we would not have invaded Iraq.” Because of the media’s capability to manage info along with the story around it, implied they might function as gatekeepers of info. The web has actually disintermediated the tradition media and they do not understand how to manage info any longer, so they are depending on censorship.
If Bitcoin can cause a method of negotiating and interacting with anybody around the world without depending on a central web, then it might develop a world with incorruptible liberty of speech.
