How Intrinsically Moral is Cryptocurrency?
For as long as there has been governed systems of monetary exchange gainers and losers have existed.
Conceptual fiscal divide has been all too real in its physical manifestation where the “haves” have, and the “have not’s”, well, haven’t.
The obvious and apparent question is; “isn’t this purely down to factors such as time, space, ability, hard work and good old luck?”.
Absolutely yes. This is the definition of life I’d argue.
But what if I were to ask you a different question? One of the horrible, impossible yet all too relevant ‘what if?’ type questions.
Yes, i dislike them too. Yet the value of these questions is in their ability to cast into the future. They can force us to imagine a new way and perhaps act toward it, and isn’t this really the definition of what it means to be a free person?
But, to reel it in and come back to context, the question is that for all of those valid reasons why a person may be financially better off – imagine how things might’ve been if the super-financial systems we know were a bit “kinder”?
By kinder, I specifically mean making profit and indeed being as highly lucrative as possible not being their primary reason for existing?
How many people on this planet are substantially affected by banking, insurance and corporate systems whose methods are on the face of it are logical, required and necessary?
See, as I ponder these points and the sub-questions which intrinsically follow a picture forms.
A view and imagining that captures generation upon generations in time, in place, where no matter what they did or could do invisible boundaries shaped their lives largely without true knowledge of such.
