While these media impressions might appear unassociated, a common thread is sewn between the two: experts in different fields with confidence professing uninformed opinions on Bitcoin. Café Bitcoin did the same recently in the very first half or so of its January 9, 2023 episode.Shellenberger made it a little much easier to locate his misunderstandings, obviously going on Pomps podcast for the sole function of showing his total and utter ignorance.SourceI think one of the most important questions to consider following these conversations is: How are either of these 2 gentlemen certified to make such evaluations in the first place?How could somebody feel so comfortable stating something they so undoubtedly understand so little about?– Alex Brammer, board of directors member for the Bitcoin Today Coalition (BTC)He even turned that sentiment into a tweet, seen below: A characteristic common to Bitcoiners is their low time preference– the desire to sacrifice short-term comfort for long-lasting gains, as opposed to following every whim. When you comprehend Bitcoin, you understand that the long-term price is gradually approaching infinity as central banks slowly, then unexpectedly, add monetary units to the system in order to manipulate the cost of capital as they see fit. Conserving in bitcoin might be a rough road for those who do not yet see the value, however in my eyes, its the most safe thing that I own.
This is a viewpoint editorial by Mickey Koss, a West Point graduate with a degree in economics. He spent 4 years in the infantry before transitioning to the Finance Corps.Barely a week into 2023, and Ive seen Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano dispute Michael Shellenberger and Joe Rogan interview Peter Ziehan. While these media impressions may appear unrelated, a common thread is stitched between the 2: professionals in different fields confidently proclaiming uninformed viewpoints on Bitcoin. Ziehans misunderstandings can be heard in the last 20 minutes or two of the interview. Our buddy Guy Swann simply made a nearly 90-minute long episode of “Bitcoin Audible” committed to tearing Ziehands analysis apart. Café Bitcoin did the exact same just recently in the first half or two of its January 9, 2023 episode.Shellenberger made it a little simpler to find his misconceptions, obviously going on Pomps podcast for the sole purpose of demonstrating his utter and total ignorance.SourceI believe among the most significant questions to consider following these discussions is: How are either of these two gentlemen qualified to make such assessments in the first place?How could somebody feel so comfy saying something they so undoubtedly understand so little about? If these 2 are so confident with viewpoints that are so certainly incorrect and uninformed, why should I trust them on anything else? While going over these two interviews in a small group, one of the members stated something that influenced the concept behind this article:”For now they both feel secure in their assertions. In the next bull cycle these clips will haunt them and stain their reliability.”– Alex Brammer, board of directors member for the Bitcoin Today Coalition (BTC)He even turned that belief into a tweet, seen listed below: A particular typical to Bitcoiners is their low time choice– the desire to compromise short-term comfort for long-term gains, instead of following every impulse. These people are the personification of what the fiat system is doing to individuals, a symptom of what happens when the money stops to interact clear prices signals. Their time choice has been so manipulated that they are willingly sacrificing their long-lasting reliability for short-term notoriety. They do it thoughtlessly, with little understanding of what theyre even critiquing, let alone the long-term implications of what theyre stating. They do it because they must, lest they be erupted as simpletons, like the rest of us. What ever happened to just stating “I dont know”? Possibly more importantly, what happens when all these naysayers are not just proven wrong, but totally, spectacularly and absolutely incorrect in every method? I forecast in the years and months to come, that those who chose to speak carelessly will begin to rapidly lose any semblance of the reliability that they as soon as had. The Cure For Gell-Mann Amnesia Is Absurdity”Briefly specified, the Gell-Mann Amnesia impact is as follows. You open the paper to a short article on some subject you know well. In Murrays case, physics. In mine, show service. You checked out the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the truths or the issues. Typically, the post is so wrong it in fact provides the story backwards– reversing domino effect. I call these the damp streets trigger rain stories. Papers full of them.”In any case, you check out with exasperation or amusement the several errors in a story, and after that turn the page to global or national affairs, and read as if the rest of the paper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just check out. You turn the page, and forget what you know.” — Michael CrichtonBitcoin is the orange tablet that wakes you up from the matrix, yes, but what if the narrative became too absurd? What if the critiques and the gripes became so certainly incorrect that these so-called professionals were no longer respected, not to mention listened to?I was a fan of Ziehan. I found his books interesting and useful. They appeared well considered and thoroughly looked into. After that interview, I dont know what to think any longer. After hearing him speak, prior to even hearing his Bitcoin critique, all I actually heard was a quasi-automaton; a character who was well rehearsed at speaking in sleek sound bites. His Bitcoin analysis was so smooth, well worded and confident. Guy, was he positive. And everything he said was absolutely wrong. I see the next couple of years as the precipice for the dissolution of present day professionals. Just like the financial expert uncle in the dystopian tale “The Mandibles,” these experts will have responses for whatever, and yet wont be able to explain a thing. Slowly however surely, people will understand that the world that these “specialists” have actually developed inside their theoretical minds no longer exists. Reality will ultimately come crashing down. You do not have to wait for that. When you understand Bitcoin, you comprehend that the long-lasting price is gradually approaching infinity as reserve banks slowly, then suddenly, include monetary systems to the system in order to manipulate the expense of capital as they see fit. Conserving in bitcoin might be a rough road for those who do not yet see the value, however in my eyes, its the most safe thing that I own. As I sit to show during this troubled week in the bearishness, I feel that I have actually never been more bullish than I am right now. This is a visitor post by Mickey Koss.
