I'm a politically minded hacker. I like, follow and try to be involved in the cypherpunk movement. I have been involved in cryptocurrencies since 2011, small-time mining and trading, as well as coding on altcoins and some bitcoin APIs. At the end of the day, I think that cryptography can enable our civilization to thrive as private individuals or private groups of individuals. It can not only allow us to put out our thoughts freely without having to worry about government oppression or oppression by anyone else. Even for communities that cannot freely exercise their human rights, they can use cryptography to move messages of freedom within their people, support revolutions and organize the unorganized masses against oppressive regimes.
Cryptography is our way out. Where progressivism and conservatism fail on the moral and economic nature of the 21st century, technology and cryptography provide a way out of these archaic thought methods that define our political realm in a dogmatic way. Not only can cryptography provide means for private economy, it can also pave the way to true free speech. Both are especially helpful in fighting against oppressive regimes and corrupt so-called democracies who shun their citizens' rights.
In light of the social, political and military events of unparalleled circumstances that have consumed us in the last twenty years (1990's onwards), the new world order and big brother are not just conspiracy theories and distant futurist novels, but a daily reality. Europe and the Americas are plagued by illegal immigration. Africa is getting poorer and sicker. The middle east are a breeding ground for extremism, corruption, intergovernmental racketeering, drug trades, slavery, sex trafficking and misery.
All that said, the society in the western world is suffering the ill effects of unopinionated antithesis. We have anticapitalists running around with iPhones, socialists, feminists and so called social justice warriors fighting "fascism", while their own ideas and practices are sicker than those of Hitler and Stalin combined.
We are running wild. While the East is running nuclear tests, our attention is monopolized by the mainstream media who shove lies down our throats. While some are trying to rebuild their countries and get up to speed with modern society and technology, we've started heading the opposite way. Some are fighting for women's real rights and we're debating if the man with the fancy clothes should be called a he or a she, or invent some new pronoun
I aim to discuss about politics, economy, technology and how cryptocurrencies, cryptography, and revolutionary digital ideas can reshape the political world as we know it and bring us on a new level of technological advancement, security, morality and economic prosperity. I'm a master of none of the above, merely a student through my own research. All opinions are my own. English is not my mother tongue, spelling and grammar corrections are welcomed.
