    I've added a poll. :p

    And I've left Nihilism out. Fuck em. What do they care anyway? If they were really Nihilists they wouldn't even bother to vote.

    You should vote then. You're probably more Libertarian than Centrist if you think small government is appropriate. As an aside, I can't see Centrism as being a valid position, too many inconsistencies and hypocrisies in a system that claims to seek a balance.

    Maybe Classical Liberal may be more appropriate for you? I can add that label if you'd like.

    I'd say the more "radical" politically someone is the more chance that cryptos align with or oppose their political leaning. As an ancap, they fit perfectly into my political spectrum as a form of decentralised, private money and blockchain as a decentralised ledger. A socialist on the other hand would have to spend a considerable amount of effort in justifying their crypto holdings and I would argue that they would fail and be shown to be a hypocrite.

    That’s fine, it’s just for fun anyway.

    I’ll peg you as a fully fledged Centrist then, being pragmatic is one of their tell-tale attributes. A penchant to trade-off or compromise in order to achieve goals.

    :p

    Some definitions may help:

    1. Socialist: an arsehole intent upon using the power of the State to steal all private property, no idea about the importance of prices in a market, an authoritarian that solves social issues by resorting to famine and murder

    2. Liberal: a form of trendy socialist, young, gullible, ignorant, low IQ, has difficulty working out the difference between a boy and girl, full of faux rage, smells of BO and illicit drugs, believes in unicorns and money-trees, whinges a lot, has a tendency to rewrite history, in denial that the espresso machine runs on fossil fuels

    3. Centrists: weak spineless pussies with splinters in their arses from sitting on fences, never invited to parties, can’t decide whether to drink beer or red wine so either don’t drink or mixes them both together in the same glass, por dressers, make good building material eg as fill behind retaining walls, posts, steps, insulation material, breakwalls, hood ornaments etc as they can be moved and placed without objection

    4. Conservatives: old, self-appointed moral guardians of society, smell of malt and moth balls, an authoritarian that solves social issues by locking up anyone who disagrees with them, hates drug users, drinks excessively, scared of anything new, likes their veggies to be overcooked and mushy, won’t eat hummus

    5. Libertarians: optimists, champions of individual freedoms, good looking, funny, charming, 8ft tall, smell of cigars and reek of success, erudite, snappy dressers, never age, can all run sub 11 sec 100m and drive a golf ball 360 yards

    6. Ancaps: Gods who walk the Earth because it amuses them to do so

    Quite a lot of people both deliberately so and as a consequence of their actions that enhance value.

    brains replacement is becoming a future now
    so cryptos for bots and human bot and even brains replaced humanoid bots would be fully utilizing such exchanges by then
    when human no longer died, don't know what kind of world have we would be, there sure would be plenty of spare parts
    may be spare parts business would be really make ones days

    Any of you collectivists ready to post something original or funny or even intelligent yet? This is like being teased by a bunch of grade one kids with school sores ie utterly non-confronting.

    Yawn.

    Back on topic, 3 votes all libertarians. Which makes sense as crypto is a libertarianesque concept.

    I think the bow tie bit in the ancap one is funnier and much more clever than the space suit bit. I can explain the joke if you don’t get it B.B.

    Julie should get it, she’s got a better memory than you.
