Triforce Slavery

The industrial revolution changed the way we did slavery.
Used to be you could just own slaves straight up,
now ya gotta be a little more tricky about it.


Wage slavery

Hello, friend.
How would you like to trade your time for money?
I bet I can make more from you than you can from me.
If not I'll just fire you and find a better part-time slave.


Debt slavery

How do you plan on paying for things?
Perhaps you'd like to use my currency.
We took it off the gold/silver standard so I can print more whenever.

Would you like a credit card?
Your identity is the collateral.

Wouldn't it be fun if it took your whole life to pay off this mortgage?


Tax slavery

Hey remember when I paid you less then you were worth,
and then essentially forced you to use a currency that I control?

Well, you actually owe me income tax now,
and if you don't pay,
I'll torture and legally enslave you under the 13th Amendment.

I've already convinced the vast majority that I'm in the right.

By the way, corporations are exempt.

All of us were born and brainwashed into this system.
It's been around quite some time.

All contentious topics have been blended into the spectrum,
that way arguments can be made on both sides.

Is it still slavery if you're making 6 figures?

Yes, but many will argue 'no',
because one can still live in abundance at that level.

How else are we going to build roads?

More like how else are we going to engage in infinite war for profit.


Corporations take the lions share of wage-slavery.
Central banks take the lions share of debt-slavery.
Governments take the lions share of tax-slavery.

And they're all buddy buddy and sitting pretty,

for now.

Crypto is really primed to change the entire game using healthy competition. Blockchain can't have tax-slavery because the tax is built into consensus and agreed to beforehand. Also, changing the rules is very hard to do. Looking at bitcoin, we see the tax is paying miners with inflation to secure the network. Seeing as 85% (18/21) of inflation has already been mined, we understand this is a very light tax, especially considering the upcoming halving event and the fundamental benefit of increased network security.

Crypto can avoid wage-slavery by lowering the barrier to entry and overhead for small business endevors. Decentralized development means that bounties can be placed on small jobs. It wouldn't matter how many hours it took you to do the job, only that you completed it and it was accepted by the network. This brings a return to actual work ethic.

Debt-slavery is automatically avoided. There is no such thing as usurious debt on the blockchain because digital identities are independent from the physical world. Privacy is key. This in combination with the pre-determined monetary policy of the chain (inflation rate) stops debt-slavery in its tracks.

Conclusion

Humanity has been enslaving itself since the beginning. Life has always been a zero-sum competition. I personally make the argument that even billionaires are slaves because all of humanity is being held back by our greed-fueled power structures. Doesn't matter that you own a mansion if you could have been flying around in a spaceship by now. Competitive relativity is creating a false sense of worth.

I maintain that humanity is operating at <1% efficiency. If everyone on Earth was working together in harmony we could advance 100 years technologically in a single year. It sounds insane but trustworthy scaled network effect is a powerful paradigm.

Crypto is primed to change the very foundation of our existence from one of competition and scarcity to synergy and abundance. We've got a lot of mountains to climb, but the path is there.

Oops, wrong Triforce.
Still, don't let it fall into the wrong hands.

I’d guess that the vast majority of people have no clue that the mort in mortgage means death.

I have a buddy, when he was in the workforce, had a boss raking in $250K a year and was up to his eyeballs in debt. He had the fancy cars, the nice home, and the boat.

Actually what he had was just a bunch of monthly payments.

There was someone else he worked with, an engineer, pulling in $150K. The guy needed an advance of $3k for work he did every few months to make it to payday. My buddy asked if he had a credit card he could use in the meantime..it was maxed out.

This is the epitome of what is taking place. The consumer economy is enslaving people simply because it is impossible to get free. Like you mentioned, even if one does stop spending like a fool, the taxes and currency get one.

I am so excited to see what crypto is going to do. I have a feeling the next 24 months will unveil a great deal. People are going to be surprised how quickly this all moves once it starts going full tilt.

90% of the population spends money like they're simply temporarily embarrassed billionaires. I made $14k last year and it sounds like I save more money than those guys. lol

It really is horrible. Money is carelessly spent on frivolities of every description.

The truly horrible thing is the whole glorification of it. Being a gluttonous consumer is something that is practically worshiped in American culture, at every single income class.

I've seen poor kids without shoes popping out of their parent's expensive car... where the fuck do people get these priorities? Oh wait...

It’s an endless cycle. Buddhists have the right idea about our endless wants.

Amen.

Most people will deny it cuz that's psychology. It prevents them from understanding how deeply they're conditionized. It would make them fearful cuz to understand these (deep-bound psychological) things you have to let go of their ego.
And to prevent this fear/ pain, there are protection mechanisms, which will just make them deny it.
Protects them from total breakdown. Nihilistic epidemic.

The global awakening is slowly and I'm kinda happy for that. A mixture out of both worlds to let the people slowly unlearn their conditioning.

"Blockchain can't have tax-slavery because the tax is built into consensus and agreed to beforehand."

[citation needed]

Do I need to describe the many ways guys with guns can force you to pay them?

"...changing the rules is very hard to do. Looking at bitcoin, we see the tax is paying miners with inflation to secure the network."

HF's are not hard to do. How many HF's has BTC suffered? Also, BTC miners are able to charge additionally to incorporate transactions into blocks. Some miners charged as much as 25% for doing so, causing BTC to become essentially impossible to transact with during the moon event.

"Debt-slavery is automatically avoided. There is no such thing as usurious debt on the blockchain because digital identities are independent from the physical world."

Do you not recall Ross Ulbricht?

I dunno man. It really seems like you want to believe so much that you ignore actual results. None of these contentions is true, and they're obviously false. I'd like to end slavery as much as anyone, but the solution is not to retreat to hallucinatory fantasy. The movie 'Brazil' is a good example of how that ends up.

I don't feel like focusing on all the blood/sweat/tears/torture/death it's going to take to get there. Your mindset lately has been one focused in America. Yes, you can stop all of this stuff from happening in America, but you can't stop it from happening all over the world all at once. Crypto City-states are going to start popping up like wildfire and they are going to band together to defend themselves. It's not going to be fucking pretty, I'll tell you that much.

There are rules at the top. The military industrial complex can get away with murder, but they can't get away with everything. The will of the people matters; that's why the establishment goes to such great lengths to manipulate it.

This is an abundance technology;
it can't be stopped because people at the top will fight for it.
They are making money hand over foot, after all.

Yada yada yada.
You'll see.
It's gonna be fucking insane.
The volatility of the entire world is going to start mimicking the volatility of crypto.
Not cute.

I hope so. I've never been hurt worse than by things that were cute.

There are companies that are worker owned and have voting, but they are not able to keep up with centralized companies. Centralization of private business is better as different people have different experience and skill sets. What makes work not slavery? Consent. Voluntary cooperation is a good thing. The blockchain and cryptocurrencies encourage that. I think that as more businesses adopted crypto’s there will be more freedom. We already see lots of pizza, retail and even some big name companies accepting crypto payments. There is even a taxi company that pays employees in crypto’s. Also, people need to work on improving themselves and not get greedy. For its true that even if you are free from exterior threats like governments and central banks, but you are a slave to your own greed then your still a slave.

"What makes work not slavery? Consent."

Not one slave ever lifted a finger without willing that finger to move. What is coercion? The fed.gov has a gun to your head. The banks outsource force to fed.gov. The happiest slave is the one that believes they are free. They work the hardest for their masters.

This is not freedom.

Yes we don’t have freedom. All I’m saying is companies would have more incentive to be honest and do the right thing for their employees and customers if governments and central banks and their fiat currencies were replaced entirely by decentralized crypto’s. The individual will become his own governor, his own bank, and his own master because of this technology. But people also have to be woken up to the truth and be willing to withdraw their consent to be ruled. Voluntary interaction including selling the product of your labor to whoever you want is the only way to be free. This includes when you go to a company and interview for a job that is voluntary. If you decide to sign a contract to work for them that is also voluntary. You can leave if you don’t like your situation and work for someone else or work for yourself is all I’m saying.

You're not waiting on crypto to be free. Crypto can't set you free because the extant equity holders won't let it. They're not gonna let what is basically a video game destroy their power.

You're free right now if you refuse to capitulate to oppression. I do not recommend doing so, because slavers make offers you can't refuse. However, you can do so in limited degree. The other day I built a shed in exchange for a leather belt.

Good luck taxing that transaction. Sadly, I was coerced into the deal, because if I had not agreed to build it, I'd have suffered the disappointment of my neighbor. If you knew my neighbor, you'd be right that I would have built the shed for free just to avoid the misery disappointing her would have brought me.

Crypto is not setting anyone free. Only you can do that for you, and I for me. Beyond that, no one can really be free. Galt's Gulch doesn't exist.

Keep working, stop paying.

I am glad to see your comment, probably more than you will believe. It's good to see you here.

Thanks :)

Nobody wants those things, but they happen because none of the bad actors at the top can actually control each other... or at least that's what some people would claim.

We saw the same thing here with bid-bots.
No one wants them, there they are.
If you can't beat um, join um.
