As my young friend, Kris, observed, "I feel like days of trading are going to come back."
It's a return to the forms of trading that built civilizations ... and a departure from the destructive path down which we're being taken, to a world in which the producers of wealth (goods and services) are enslaved to those who simply control the trading exchanges, financial lending institutions, and banks..
And many people fear that.
But commerce, trade, has historically been exciting, adventurous and, yes, even dangerous.
Bitcoin is nothing just another attempt by human beings to restore some of the humanity that's being sucked out of the world by the insatiably greedy.
