cypherpunks write code; if people can be persuaded it's in their interests to use that code, we can unilaterally take back our self-sovereignty, and side-step the self-proclaimed elites, with misguided zeal pulling the world deeper into the abyss, the dystopian digital dark-ages.

it's curious to me that some ethereum proponents are so divergent with bottom up thinking, in multiple domains: technologically and self-reliance, self-sovereign, hard-money, bearer, final, immutability thinking. must be tough to have that conflict bouncing around in your head.
