2021.09.16 22:47 ViridianZeal This book published in 1999 talks about cryptocurrency. Amazing.
I haven't read the book yet. This excerpt is from the Amazon website. It's from the first chapter, I believe. [Emphasis mine]
When this greatest tax haven of them all is fully open for business, all funds will essentially be offshore funds at the discretion of their owner. This will have cascading consequences. The state has grown used to treating its taxpayers as a farmer treats his cows, keeping them in a field to be milked. Soon, the cows will have wings.
The Revenge of Nations
Like an angry farmer, the state will no doubt take desperate measures at first to tether and hobble its escaping herd. It will employ covert and even violent means to restrict access to liberating technologies. Such expedients will work only temporarily, if at all. The twentieth-century nation-state, with all its pretensions, will starve to death as its tax revenues decline.
When the state finds itself unable to meet its committed expenditure by raising tax revenues, it will resort to other, more desperate measures. Among them is printing money. Governments have grown used to enjoying a monopoly over currency that they could depreciate at will. This arbitrary inflation has been a prominent feature of the monetary policy of all twentieth-century states. Even the best national currency of the postwar period, the German mark, lost 71 percent of its value from January 1, 1949, through the end of June 1995. In the same period, the U.S. dollar lost 84 percent of its value. This inflation had the same effect as a tax on alt who hold the currency. As we explore later, inflation as revenue option will be largely foreclosed by the emergence of cybermoney. New technologies will allow the holders of wealth to bypass the national monopolies that have issued and regulated money in the modern period. Indeed, the credit crises that swept through Asia, Russia, and other emerging economies in 1997 and 1998 attest to the fact that national currencies and national credit ratings are anachronisms inimical to the smooth operation of the global economy. It is precisely the fact that the demands of sovereignty require all transactions within a jurisdiction to be denominated in a national currency that creates the vulnerability to mistakes by central bankers and attacks by speculators which precipitated deflationary crises in one jurisdiction after another. [In the Information Age, individuals will be able to use cybercurrencies and thus declare their monetary independence. When individuals can conduct their own monetary policies over the World Wide Web it will matter less or not at all that the state continues to control the industrial-era printing presses. Their importance for controlling the world's wealth will be transcended by mathematical algorithms that have no physical existence. In the new millennium, cybermoney controlled by private markets will supersede fiat money issued by governments.] Only the poor will be victims of inflation and ensuing collapses into deflation that are consequences of the artificial leverage which fiat money injects into the economy.
Lacking their accustomed scope to tax and inflate, governments, even in traditionally civil countries, will turn nasty. As income tax becomes uncollectible, older and more arbitrary methods of exaction will resurface. The ultimate form of withholding tax -- de facto or even overt hostage-taking will be introduced by governments desperate to prevent wealth from escaping beyond their reach. Unlucky individuals will find themselves singled out and held to ransom in an almost medieval fashion. Businesses that offer services that facilitate the realization of autonomy by individuals will be subject to infiltration, sabotage, and disruption. Arbitrary forfeiture of property, already commonplace in the United States, where it occurs five thousand times-a week, will become even more pervasive. Governments will violate human rights, censor the free flow of information, sabotage useful technologies, and worse. For the same reasons that the late, departed Soviet Union tried in vain to suppress access to personal computers and Xerox machines, Western governments will seek to suppress the cybereconomy by totalitarian means.
The book is called Sovereign Individual.

2021.09.16 22:47 brownmagician Having the ability to customize my food order on an app allows me to be specific and probably get what I really want where I may not have before. Plus it's not as awkward either.
If I wanted to order fast food from a company's app, the ability to customize really allows me to put in an order through with custom instructions and toppings and not feel bad about taking too long in line or at the drive through.
I can't speak for every place that uses apps like this, but I just ordered a bunch of cheap burgers with a bunch of customizations to each one like adding lettuce, removing ketchup and having one lettuce wrapped and another with bacon but no mustard, etc.
It really is convenient and I don't inconvenience others. Anyone else feel that?

2021.09.16 22:47 hardcorechim Finally a great experience!
I applied for a job about 2 hours ago. I just now got off the phone with the manager and he was great. He was very open about pay range and it was exactly what I was looking for. He said "theres no point for me to bring you in just to find out the pay isn't what you're looking for, that waste everyones time". They followed up 2 hours after an application AND were transparent about pay. It's just refreshing lol

2021.09.16 22:47 Particular_Flower330 Breakup advice.
Yo guys It stops hurting after all. The black hole inside of your chest filled with emptiness will eventually fade. It takes time, and that time might be one of the hardest things you will go through. I had a girlfriend, she meant the world to me and i treated her as a princess. The day before my birthday i woke up because i got a notification. It was a picture of my gf kissing another boy. That hurts. 2 and a half year wasted. I had so many bad thoughts going on in my mind. I was angry, sad depressed. But the worst part of it, was that i felt guilt. Guilt because my subconsciousness told me, that i could have done more to keep her happy. And if i had done more, then she wouldn’t have thought about cheating. This guilt thing went on for months. I was blocked on everything 2 days after i broke up with her, and that didn’t make me feel better. You don’t have to find a new hobby afterwards. Take your time. Lay in bed. Cry. It’s okay, u wasted ur love on someone who could never give half as much back to you - even though you kept trying to convince yourself that wasn’t the case. If you are down bad then please write in the comment section.
I love you.

2021.09.16 22:47 Icefirewolflord I believe that self diagnosis for the purpose of getting medical attention is ok
Pretty much the title, but ONLY if it’s to get an actual medical diagnosis and treatment.
If you have done the research, compared the symptoms to your own and are reasonably sure, I think it’s perfectly fine to tell your doctofamily/friends “hey, I think I have this, I’m going to go get tested.”
Of course, SD for attention is never ok. You shouldn’t ever become the middle school kid who’s convinced they have severe depression because something made them sad.
Personally, (with the support of my therapist and psych) I have self-diagnosed myself with autism.
Not because I want attention, not because I think it’s cool. It’s because I have a LARGE number of the symptoms, two co-morbid (often occurring at the same time) conditions, one that can only be diagnosed after an autism diagnosis, and because I have consulted with my therapist and psychiatrist who agree.
I don’t have a medical diagnosis; it’s rather difficult to get one at my age and in my area. But I am on the wait list to get one, and on a wait list for specific therapy relating to the second comorbid condition.
I did my research, took my time, and consulted medical professionals before placing a diagnosis on my head. At my age and birth sex (17 FTM trans), if you don’t tell the doctor definitively, they won’t even consider it a possibility.
This is when I believe it’s ok. That self diagnosis is ok as a form of advocacy for yourself in order to get the formal diagnosis.
TL:DR; IF you have done hours of research, consulted a medical professional, and are absolutely certian you have a condition, it’s ok to say you have the condition as a way of self advocacy to get a diagnosis

2021.09.16 22:47 bozwobbler Taking a pay cut for possible dream job
I guess I'll start by saying I'm 26, living just out of London, earning 22k - and I'm one of the many people who hates my job. I have a pretty decent amount of savings, with some invested in stocks and crypto.
I found my current place of work fairly quickly and desperately after being made redundant from a job I absolutely loved. The company I work for now is starting to become pretty unstable, and my wage definitely won't be moving anytime.
Since I started at my current place of work, I've been looking for that "dream job" again, and have found and been invited for a second interview at a place that could be an amazing opportunity for me. However, it's a junior role with a 2k pay cut, I'll have to pay travel expenses, and its a pretty long travel time (2hrs).
At the moment, my self justification is that it would be a good foot in the door of the industry I want to work in. The pay cut and travel time however, are leaving me wondering if it would be worth it. My ambition to move on and better my life and work situation is leaving me feeling conflicted. If the commute wasn't so long, I'd take it without question as to me the pay cut will pay off in the long run (pun intended? Who knows).
I know it's a bit stupid as ultimately it's a decision I need to make, but could anyone give me some advice as to what they would do, or give me some percpective?
