California is arguably top-of-the-line locations on this planet. The state is stuffed with nice climate, nice geography, not to point out that we have now among the smartest residents dwelling right here. We are leaders in know-how worldwide and thru that we are altering how folks stay on daily basis. But are we at the moment strolling down the best path, or have we misplaced our method?
I might argue that we have now misplaced our method.
For the previous decade California has been strolling down the flawed path — a path main to extra social management of the final inhabitants. The firms that reside right here are turning into “the thought police,” telling the people who we love that their personal opinions are flawed. While a lot of the builders see themselves as doing good, collectively they are ruining California.
On high of that, there appears to be a development of the California authorities mismanaging their taxes and monetary system as a complete. California’s Gross Domestic Product is one of many highest within the nation, but our taxes preserve going up and debt keeps expanding.**
One factor I’ve discovered all through my three yr Bitcoin journey, is that Bitcoin and Bitcoiners love transparency. Open-source code that anybody on this planet can examine, and personal nodes that anybody can arrange and might confirm all points of the community if they select too are all a part of Bitcoin’s ethos.
Where Should California Be Heading?
California needs to be working in direction of constructing an open-source world, the place folks can examine the code for bugs and exploits, ensuring that the infrastructure is safe and nothing was dedicated with no assessment course of. This needs to be utilized to all points of our native, state, and in the future, the nationwide authorities. Only by transparency are you able to restore the religion and belief of the folks.
As for the tech firms that reside right here — they needs to be working to improve the non-public freedoms and rights of their fellow man. Once you constrict private freedoms, folks will at all times struggle again, or peacefully go away the state solely.
California is perhaps at the moment on a path in direction of destruction, however this doesn’t want to be the destiny for the Golden State. The common particular person dwelling right here needs to stay in a greater world than the one they grew up in. Californians are actively attempting to make a distinction for the higher good. We all have vastly completely different opinions on how to make this modification occur. But one factor is for certain, the present trajectory will solely lead to extra social management and monetary disappointment.
Replicating the open-source transparency of Bitcoin is the way in which ahead for California, and for any state that needs to prosper.
