Bitcoin Audible – Read_540 – Bitcoin & the American Idea [Alex Gladstein]

“Perhaps Bitcoin can help Americans reflect on our history and remember that our true glory, in Adams’s words, is ‘œnot dominion, but liberty,’ and that our true march is ‘œof the mind’ and not the sword.” – Alex Galdstein

Happy Independence Day fellow Audionauts! This is the day to celebrate the American experiment and the ideals which it sought to achieve. An ideal of “all men created equal,” individual liberties, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and so many more revolutionary principles that have been the foundation for the outlaw of slavery, the civil rights movement, & human rights movements around the world.

So where do we separate “America the idea” from “America the political system?” What was missed in the founding documents that allowed the experiment to still fail so many? Does Bitcoin have a role to play by re-empowering these core principles of individual liberty?
