Do Kown of Terra, which is building a new financial system: “I think building a real economy on the internet is something that is of value. And the reason why I think this is of value is because while reality is constricted by physical laws, and admittedly, this is part of what makes reality beautiful, but at the same time is what makes reality broken. The only thing that limits us on the internet is human ingenuity. So the types of things that we are able to build on the open web are going to be significantly more sophisticated, significantly more value-additive than the things that we can construct in reality.”

Aldus Huxley (decades ago): “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution…A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.” [via Atanu Dey]
