Love it or hate it, can anybody deny the inevitability of this happening?

I'm sure everyone is going to be surprised by the fact that I love this. What I find so cool about it is the fact that all of the pieces already exist for this to be implemented...

We could see this emerge soon. It gives me hope for anarchy in my life time, something I didn't dare hope for before (the main cause of a lot of frustrations I've been feeling of late).

Anyway hells yeah!!!

Thanks for posting this Seth!!!

EDIT: I decided to go ahead and read the essay, it was easy to find but I'm a fan of the division of labour so now instead of having to search for the essay yourself you can find it here.

This concept is very touchy...

Jim Bell is no longer in prison and his name does come up still from time to time on the Cypherpunks mailing list. Bitbutter actually changed his mind though about how inevitable assassination politics really is (and I notice Seth that you just recently commented on that video).

I'll try and get in touch with Bell about some of this. I do have some skepticism about this whole idea, but in many nations of the world today I do think it has some merit.

Well the tech already exists all that is needed is for someone to do the hard part and make the service.
