Even Peterson is talking about Bitcoin these days

in bitcoin •  21 days ago

Just to be clear my friends, I'm not much of Peterson fan, but I do respect some of his ideas. In other words, he's not without his merits, but in my personal opinion he is quite overrated as an intellectual. However, seeing this, watching him and other opinionated personalities talk about the censorship issue is a good thing, and I believe these are steps in the right direction.

You might be aware that Patreon lately has been chopping some heads. That is to say, that they've started to kick people off their platform if they believe the content creator is toxic to their label. In one hand I can understand it, meaning that, it makes sense that as a company that can get lawsuits you would do whatever it takes to avoid losing money in such a silly way. That being said, some of the people that have gotten banned or more accurately kicked off, were not necessarily toxic so to speak.

In solidarity some prominent people have spoken up against this move from Patreon and in my opinion they will probably be remembered in good light for doing so, among them of course is Jordan Peterson, the man behind the tweet I found on my feed today.

I'm not fully aware of the numbers, but last I heard, which was months ago, he was one of the most rewarded people on that platform and thus one would assume that him speaking out would be dumb, but I respect a man that stands by his sense of ethics and does not succumb to greed.

I'm of the opinion that this somewhat new discovery of "censorship resistance platforms", the ones being built everyday on different blockchains around the world, will eventually attract enough leaders of thought as to really the legacy systems in place, but how far are we from that day? that, I really don't know.

That being said, I'm happy the conversations are happening, I'm glad the focus is not just on the "moon" and the lambos but on the value proposition of immutable sound money.

Yeah, I got notified about that as well. As a content creator on Patreon, it affected me directly since I got messaged to offer other donation ways since people didn't want to support Patreon as a company anymore.
Unfortunately, we could only offer Paypal as an alternative which is not much better in terms of censorship resilience and "ethics".
I also told our supporter that the only reason we didn't move into crypto yet is that Patreon and Paypal accept any FIAT currency easily while in the crypto community you are quite restricted yet. That would restrict our "donator base" a bit too strongly.

The huge bull run last year perhaps put crypto on the radar and shook out some of the greed. These conversations are hopefully putting it in the right spot on the map.

This is what we need! More celebrities talking about crypto! Thanks for sharing Meno! It's always good to see this!

As happen in many great evolutions, we need to get back to the basics to remind is why it all started.

I am ready for them...

Yas is overrated as a meme or joke.

On a similar note, though, and related to this post: nothing is more tired and played out than "when moon" memes, which is essentially what Dmania is. A storage for those.

I see what you did there. :)

is J. peterson, like, someone people pay attention to?

·
·

Why is it sad?

·
·
·

Mostly coz JP is over rated and his shelf life is 3 more years..

He is right about the 12 rules of life but that's about it...

Fair enough. Most of what he says just strikes me as common sense, but since the vast majority of the public seems to have lost what little they ever had, maybe that's why his ideas seem so important to some people now. I think he's just pushing back against a system that is trying to silence people who don't want to give in to every demand that the PC crowd has.

He starts with common sense (12 rules etc) and then tries to sell his own snake oil (christanity is besy / incel symapthy / females make it difficult at work place)...he obviosuly uses connontation to imply these ideas without coming out and saying it explicitly. .
