@ModernApostate @Bitcoin_IRA If the bitcoin was purchased inside the Roth IRA, there should be no tax so long as you aren’t day trading.

Oh no, 70% of @Bitcoin_IRA investors use Traditional IRAs. Think long term, folks: tax-wise, Roth IRAs are superior! bitcoinira.com/wp-content/upl…

@999BTC Also: deprecation of State where individuals can opt-out of its control doesn’t preclude people from choosing to live under a State.

@999BTC To be clear, I think statists often create a strawman argument that anarchists claim a stateless society will be a nonviolent utopia

@999BTC Someone has to pay for security personnel, the only difference is how the money is raised.

@999BTC If an individual or group is incapable of defending themselves, they can hire private security forces. Need not be backed by a State

@coin_artist @decredproject Hard fork voting? Does that mean that a majority of voters can force a minority to follow them onto a hard fork?

@999BTC Most infrastructure is already built and maintained by private companies - the State is merely coordinating them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 999BTC

@999BTC Right, that’s what I mean by deprecating the State - making superior voluntary options available for people.

6) “Deprecate the State” is my take on @balajis’ “Silicon Valley’s Ultimate Exit” youtube.com/watch?v=cOubCH…

5) “Death to the State” can’t work - it’s insane to continue this cycle. Our best hope for freedom is to peacefully deprecate the State.

4) It may take centuries for weak govt to amass enough power that citizens find it too onerous, revolting & resetting the cycle of violence.

3) Even when a nation is replaced by a much weaker govt (such as the USA with its many restrictions on power) it will slowly grow stronger.

2) However, nation states can’t be destroyed via violence. Nation states are the embodiment of the monopolization of violence.

1) Throughout human history when citizens could no longer tolerate the atrocities committed by the State, they’d violently overthrow it.
