@koreymoffett says the guy who killed himself to avoid going to prison for tax evasion.

US POL 

@koreymoffett yeah mcaffe who offed himself after having done too many drugs and evading taxes, and then couldn't stand for what he did, really great person to look up to ;)

US POL 

@sotolf who said I looked up to him? I simply posted something he said that I agree with, I'm not saying I agree with everything he has done. Simply agree with what he said.

US POL 

@koreymoffett haha, yeah being proud of agreeing with a scammer who has connections to the extreme right of the US, well of course you are free to do that, I just would not do it myself.

US POL 

@sotolf I simply agree with what he said, what he was is irrelevant, rather he was left or right wing is also irrelevant. I'm agreeing with a statement.

US POL 

@koreymoffett also since you agree with the statement he made, how has crypto helped anyone who are fucked by the system? The only thing it has done so far is letting privileged people swapping money while people living from paycheck to paycheck, what have they seen so far? Zilch nix nothing, don't fool yourself with fantasies.

US POL 

@sotolf I haven't fooled myself, i am my own person and i have my own ideas and opinions on things, you clearly aren't ok with people thinking differently than you

US POL 

@koreymoffett how am I not? How did you see this magical knowledge? Are you a mind reader as well? Again like most shit coin toting people, instead of answering the question you went straight to an as hominem, it's sad to see that you have fallen that far..

US POL 

@sotolf Cool, glad we could disagree.

US POL 

@koreymoffett okay, so no willingness to answer the question, I take it you agree then?

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett fuck the government. Taxation is theft. McAfee was right to dodge taxes. Every week I pay 20% of my wages to the government. If you think that is right and just you are a cuck.

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett Oooh another one of the crypto shits trying to act tough with their ad hominems, sad to see you didn't manage to follow the things that you were supposed to learn in school ;)

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett I have some money in it but I'm not a retard about crypto. I really hate the government and the bootlickers that crawl behind it.

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett Who said anyone are simping the government here, you're making assumptions... Especially broken governments like in the US.. I'd rather support something that brings humanity forward instead of supporting another system that allows people with money to gain more of it and people shuffeling theirs around patting themselves on their back telling eachother how great they are while they are fucking over the ecosystem.

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett shitcoins are only fucking with the ecosystem because of the nonrenewable energy used, it's just a symptom of the problem and not the root. Your hate is misplaced fren. The rich hoarding money is a people problem, if the government wasn't taxing everyone so much people would be more apt to help their fellow man. Also they have to not be pricks. I feel you there.

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett The only reason why people are in crypto currencies are their selfish wish to enrich themselves.

Remember what happened last time when the big coal powerplant in china had problems...

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett it is in everyone's personal interest to try their best to live comfortably, shitcoin trading is a way to do that. Can't fault people for wanting what's best for themselves and the people close to them

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett I'm not faulting the people, I'm faulting the crypto currencies for only helping people that already have money instead of the people that actually would need it. while still making the world more shit for the people that already has nothing, it's just capitalism again, and we see how that went the first time...

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett lmao I disagree, the free market is king. People just need to stand up for themselves and not rely on their big brother for help

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett The free market is great, for you and me who are priviledged enough to take part in it, for people generally, no it's not good.

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett the people that aren't privileged enough consist of?

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett people living paycheck to paycheck, people that have debts that they have to pay off for education or medical issues that they didn't cause themselves, people from families that weren't well off in the first place, people in countries that got truely fucked by their government and so on.

US POL 

@sotolf @koreymoffett I literally live check to check. I know what it is like to hit rock bottom in the US. I've lived it, I've breathed it. Let me tell you this, the system here is rigged by the government. Regulations, taxes, inflation, etc is because the government has it's fingers in every pie. It has destroyed the economy, it has profited off of the labor it's people provides. Those elected officials sit on their asses and collect over 100k a year. I swear to you this country would be a way better place if these grubby goblins didn't hold a place of power and the people actually had a voice.

US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett Funnily I live in a country where I paid way more taxes, also got my education (bachelor's degree) for free, every medical issue (I had quite a few growing up) covered by the state. I don't think I am neither lazy nor "sucking on the teat of big brother" because of that. I gladly pay taxes to help giving other people in my community to have the same chances that I had.

re: US POL 

@GirthyChode @sotolf @koreymoffett >not rely on their big brother for help

then “crypto” can’t be the solution anyways

re: US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett @sotolf the crypto markets are all heavily centralized, just because you say its “defi” it doesn’t become true

if hobo mchoboface wants to store his begging dollars on the blockchain, he’ll have to go through one of the big names (if he can even afford the fees/“gas”)

re: US POL 

@ic3l9 @koreymoffett @sotolf he absolutely does not unless he purchased the crypto in a place that doesn't give him actual access to the wallet. You can have wallets offline and on devices that were never connected to the internet. You can transfer coin through Bluetooth, NFC, etc.

re: US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett @ic3l9 And destroy the environment in the process.

re: US POL 

@GirthyChode @koreymoffett @sotolf how exactly is hobo mchoboface going to obtain his own wallet, let alone convert his begging dollar into “crypto”

not abstractly, specifically
