There are many questions surrounding the development of this technology that poses an existential threat to humanity, but most people are too busy worrying about whether computers can have a soul to address these concerns.
In history, many “things” have been labeled money. Shells, tree bark, stones, plants, etc. But all of them lost their attractiveness and people turned back to gold and silver.

So it is extremely unlikely that this purge will be the end of this particularly turbulent chapter in the history of the House of Saud. It may just be the beginning.
...it's unlikely we're going to get a single bombshell on the Kennedy case from these documents, but there still may be nuggets worth digging up here, new ways of gaining perspective on deep state events that could serve as a spark for a future generation of would-be researchers.
The greatest trick the banksters and their corporate cronies have ever pulled is to convince you that you are weak and powerless without their governmental puppets and regulatory lapdogs to (pretend to) protect you. That is a lie. The people have always held that power in their own hands.

...the blockchain can be used to create digital currencies that represent the very vision of a totalitarian tyrant’s wildest wet dream.
The bottom line is this folks. In areas where they can grow sawgrass and sugar cane, the “price” about equals out, but there’s a bigger carbon print. In areas where we’re using corn, the math does NOT work.
...suffering through the Great Depression, the American people were willing to listen to any ideas to replace the current system that had so obviously failed them, no matter how outlandish. Technocracy, Inc. did attract a following, swelling into the tens of thousands later in the decade.
