Great until you said give more money to government funded healthcare systems like the VA - which will inevitably squander the resources.

+David Stickney People not paying taxes by definition doesn't cost anything. People protecting their income from thieves are laudable. Of course, the government should never give money to a company either, by the same logic. All taxation is deplorable.

@47:49 Joe Rogan... Please read some history - the majority of all people around the world were involved in farming until very recently...

Joe - the solution to the problem of the "Oceans" is the Privatization of the Oceans.

hey Joe- want to solve the problem of the Oceans? Then Privatize them.

The "government" doesn't care.

Mother earth doesn't care. Mother earth doesn't exist.

Only individual human beings care. Let those who care about the oceans and the animals within them take ownership and protect them.

You've provided in a nutshell why free market economics is just a pipedream.
It's just  like with patented stuff. Who'd want to  compete if the competition drives profits down to cost of  doing business?
I'm sure even if they got rid of government, the entrepreneurs with nice cosy profits will want to keep competitors out. And without government who's  going to break up monopolies and oligopolies?

Hmm - I don't buy the "you don't have to dig up rocks like you do gold" argument - I don't believe in the labour theory of value, and that would also eliminate the  "it takes computing power to mine a bitcoin therefore it is valuable argument"

It takes computer power to make a really crappy movie that no-one wants to see as well.

Of course, Milton Friedman also made the "why waste resources mining gold when we can just print up currency at the central bank" and look where that has gotten us...

Bitcoin only has value because someone will else will accept them in exchange. Will they continue down the path of greater acceptance? Or will they be a blip on the radar?

For the record I do own some bitcoin, and I have not yet sold them.

It is not the resources spent (consumed) to produce bitcoin that give them their value directly. Value is what an individual project in the present and in the future.
But the need to spend resources to produce bitcoin (mining the blocks) make them limited and difficult to manipulate.
