Not all of us are here just for profits. Some of us want to drive change. Here’s why humankind needs a deflationary decentralized global currency

– Current economic model is a constant growth model which is fundamentally unsustainable by definition on a finite planet.​- Inflationary financial model is a design feature to disincentivise holding, and incentivise spending – to spur the constant growth consumeristic economy (again, which is fundamentally flawed).​- Current consumerism is literally destroying the planet and threatening existential level catastrophies on multiple fronts. The planet will surrive, but we may not. Global warming, depletion of topsoil (55 years remaining), Phytoplankton collapse causing O2 collapse due to acidifiying oceans, Bee and insect collapse, Plastic in oceans, etc. Every one of these is strongly linked to the constant-growth-consumeristic unsustainable economy.​- We either put ourselves into lower energy lifestyles, or nature does that for us – in potentially extreme ways such as “your planet can no longer grow food because you have no more soil – it’s all in the oceans/rivers”. Or, “good job, you maximized profits for shareholders, BTW I’ve sunken your entire planet under the oceans – best of luck”.​- Humans are too stupid collectively (smart individually, stupid as hell collectively) to reverse this.​- Compound this with the fact that the people in charge of these decisions are directly supported by the people who have financial vested interest in NOT changing their extremely financially lucrative (but environmentally devastating) practices.​- Humankind NEEDS a deflationary currency, so that consumerism is DISINCENTIVISED. People are stupid, and if you want them to do something their best interests, the only way is to create an incentive to do that. Right now the incentive is to spend – we need the incentive to be to reduce spending.​- The economy WILL take a hit, but that hit is absolutely required if we are going to continue being able to survive. The only way we can get there is to take power out of the corrupt, put power to the common, and even if not actual POWER, but CONTROL.​- We need to stop giving power to the PRIVATELY owned and controlled organisation which controls the current financial system (fiat). We NEED to move away from consumerism. We need to move away from inflationary currencies which drive consumerism. We need to incentivise less spending and a lower energy footprint lifestyle. Deflationary currency such as BTC (or whatever ends up winning) needs to happen, as a matter of survival of the human race.​- Decentralized currency means we take voting/decision on currency policy away from the centralized few who will make decisions entirely on maximizing their own family lecacies/profit.​Not all of us are here just for profits. Many of us are here because we NEED change. Like, or else we all fucking die. Well, likely not US, but our grandkids who we are constantly screwing so that we can have 5% increased profits every year, year on year, with no thoughts towards how sustainable increased resource consumption to drive these profits is – on a finite planet.​
