Bitcoin Lets Us Stand Up To Ruling Class Plunder


The below is a direct excerpt of Marty’s Bent Issue #1120: “They have made plunder the norm.” Sign up for the newsletter here.

If you couldn’t tell, we’re living through a bit of a societal decay at the moment. And if we’re being brutally honest with ourselves, we’ve probably been living through a bit of a societal decay for decades, it’s just much more obvious at the moment. There are many variables that led to the current frayed society that seems lost and somewhat desperate. We can point to the money printing, a media and political class that seem hell bent on sowing division, a combination of complacency and apathy, and a number of other factors.

However, there is a common factor beneath all these factors that has created an environment where societal decay is inevitable. Furthermore, this common factor is something that man has known about for centuries and we have been warned to avoid by great thinkers throughout history; when those at the top of the economic/power structure don’t live by the same rules as those below them it will lead to an inevitable societal and moral collapse as those below the upper rungs of the power structure become privy to the unfairness of the system.

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis the fact that we live in a two-tiered society broken up into a ruling class and its cronies who can plunder with little to no repercussions and the rest of us who do not have that ability. Or should I say, did not have that ability. It seems that we’ve reached a point where some of the “have nots” have had enough of watching the members of the ruling class run amok and are deciding to get what they perceive to be their fair share. This sentiment and follow up action is becoming pervasive in cities around the country that have neutered their police departments and decided not to prosecute petty crimes like theft. It has become increasingly popular for flash mobs to run into stores and absolutely ransack them without any fear of repercussions.
