Technology is a double-edged sword.
It works for us and against us.
It increases communication and also isolation.
It saves us time. It wastes our time.
It brings us together. It rips us apart
people with unparalleled freedom or facilitate humanity's total enslavement.
In recent weeks, I've noticed people becoming aware of the possible dangers blockchain technology could pose and how it could be used as a tool of subjugation.
There are already signs that that banksters and power elite are executing plans to infiltrate, manipulate and subvert blockchain technologies.
Goldman Sachs backed Circle has just bought Poloniex and there are sure to be more major moves to infiltrate the cryptosphere, manipulate the markets, gain influence, flood the market with government backed cryptocurrencies, mimic decentralization and initiate deliberate attempts to crash the markets, all in an effort to regain complete control of the financial sector and world economy.
Still, others openly speculate if cryptocurrencies themselves, and the promise of freedom that comes with them, are nothing more than a technological trojan horse planned in advance by the NWO and quietly introduced to usher in a world currency.
Perhaps, even a case of predictive programming as the Rothschild publication The Economist indicated 30 years ago.

This contest came about through conversations with fellow steemians @tarazkp and @son-of-satire. I'd like to thank them for giving me both inspiration for the contest and for their writings on the subject which I also greatly enjoyed.
