Once upon a time...
There was a group of old men that called themselves "Goldbugs". Precarious group of fellows they were. It wasn't rare to hear them shout things like "End the Fed" or "Bring back the Republic". As a neophyte I found myself stumbling upon their rhetoric. Being about as green as one could get, I found myself easily swayed by their charm. Not knowing that someday they would try to make me baghold their paradigm. A somewhat complicated thing to explain but in time I may get there with you. I do warn you though in order to follow along you must shed any preconceived notions you have about alternative media and anything affiliated with it.
I do apologize for the title of this thread because it will take a certain level of understanding to get to what Bitcoin is all about. In essence Bitcoin is about money changing to say the least. How can this be you ask? Aren't goldbugs trying to end the Fed and rid the world of the money changers? Haven't they noticed and somewhat embraced this shining gem that Satoshi created to fix what the so called money changers created? Well the answer to that question is yes and no. In order to handle the no you have to decide exactly how far down the rabbit hole you want to go. Such a cliché thing to say I know. Nonetheless, most of you probably already feel it in your gut that changing the economic landscape in your life is not the end all be all of cause and effect. I can assure you though that most of you probably have no idea that you are in fact facilitating the reincarnation of the money changers themselves by supporting Bitcoin. With that being said I will have to start where I laid hands on my first 10oz bar of silver...
