A quick thought for the Libertarian cryptocurrency enthusiasts out there.If tax is theft, but the act of taxing people in your own scrip is necessary to underpin the value of that scrip as a national currency…(supporting the argument that a cryptocurrency will never be socially valuable on a mass scale unless it’s accepted by the highest taxing authority to extinguish tax debts.)… does that make ransomware the theft that underpins the value of cryptocurrency as a universal currency?If so, what does that say about civilised progress? We’re going from a tax authority which we can democratically control and govern, to a ransomware authority that operates on a strongest man/feudalistic basis, and takes no regard for how the proceeds of that theft should be spent or distributed?Nice.Related
