This is the opinion editorial by Aleks Svetski, author of “The Non-Communist Manifesto.” Bitcoin Times and Host of “Wake Up Podcast with Svetski”.
Such is the case when there is a small print copy blended with a kind of hops infused with philosophy, what the doctor ordered.
Svetski is here to offer this cure for your pains and ailments. This mix is for my siblings in the final Bitcoin classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021.
this is your moment earn money your bitcoin. Inheriting the world with first-mover advantage in Bitcoin was never going to be easy, and each of these sections is an opportunity for you to not only save up some cheap sales, but to actually convince.
The former is a nice advantage, but the latter is what builds character.
In this short piece, I will try to remind you. Why we are all here.
Most individuals LARPing freedom and wealth will now be running for the hills with their tails tucked between their legs. They will exchange energy coins for toilet paper, funny coins issued by the government or the central bank.
An incredible sight to see.
But… Those who don’t, what’s left among you, will be transformed into something stronger and deeper.
i am writing for this joyful, because I and many others have walked the same path. We are in the early stages of a multi-decade struggle that must replace the old empire of lies with a truth time chain. The world cannot continue as it is. Center and central planners cannot hold on.
You will finally have the opportunity to become a Bitcoiner. Now is your chance to enter the Bitcoin hall of fame, and I don’t mean some public record written on a wall. I’m talking about laying a foundation for generational wealth.
We are still in the heat of war. What the world needs more of right now are faithful, battle-hardened Bitcoiners who will not bow to the enemy under any circumstances.
This enemy is multifaceted. It includes the get-rich-quick schemes of the Shitcoin world, the fake gods of the fiat state, and the fraudulent machinations of central banking cartels. Each conspires to turn you into either a pile, a Judas, an Ephialtes of Trachis, or just a mindless sticky blob of gray that will be molded into whatever fit the hysteria of the moment.
Bitcoin is not going anywhere because you and I are not going anywhere. Bitcoin will not bow down because you and I do not bow down. If Bitcoin sinks, we turn it into a submarine and we’re on our way. We’ll find a way to resurface.
There is no plan C. You burn the goddamn boats to take the island.
None of this is new, just a fighting version of our generation. The spirit of the victor remains the same.
No one will devote their life to “printing euros by the ECB”. But many will devote their lives to the establishment of a techno-sociological phenomenon that roots the scorecard of the product of our labor in the universal currency (energy).
This natural advantage is what makes us different from both lemmings and parasites, firstly because they are unaware of what is going on, and secondly because they pull the levers to themselves, they want to maintain the status quo.
The intolerant minority wins because they won’t submit. Time is always with us. We may not have the numbers, but we have the advantage of the seriousness of the truth. The Empire of Lies has to fight entropy. As such, he will lose.
Lock your Bitcoin, make it impossible to touch and watch what happens.
When I wrote about 42 reasons to sell bitcoin in January 2022, I was very clear about how this year would go. I’m not even sure I consider what we’re going through as a “bear market”. The worst is an intermittent phase in a larger up-loop. Either way, it’s irrelevant because it serves a single purpose; earn bitcoin.
“42 Reasons to Sell Your Bitcoin:
1. If you think it won’t fall:
Then you are in a gross awakening. Sell your bitcoin.
2. If you think it will not rise:
Then what are you doing here?
Sell your bitcoin.
3. If you believe the 14-year-old tea leaf analysts with large Twitter accounts:
If this is the basis on which you buy Bitcoin, you should definitely sell them all. Drawing lines on a screen helps you understand “why bitcoin”, just as watching someone else work out at the gym helps you lose weight…
23. If you think the highest is $69,000:
Then you should sell.
24. If you think $600 to $300 is different from $60,000 to $30,000:
Then you can’t do math… so you have to sell.
25. If you think the bottom is $42,000:
Then you should sell.
26. If you are still watching Real Vision:
Then fuck me… you’re definitely beyond help or reason. These clowns have been right every 10 years and you’re still watching them?
I suggest you not only sell your bitcoin, but also buy some BSV, make a poster of Raoul, hang it on your wall, take a photo, make an NFT and pretend you’ve innovated on Web 3.0…
40. Transforming the world would be easy:
If you wanted salvation and thought it would come without sacrifice, if you thought winning would be a walk in the park and we wouldn’t have to make fun of it for decades, sorry, you guys were seriously wrong.
If you think that the ‘Great Transition’ will somehow become a Kumbaya where we all hold hands and happily switch to the Bitcoin standard, then you are as wrong as the next central planner and I would rather you give up immediately. Draw unicorns and create smart contracts on Ethereum.
Here in Bitcoin we need warriors: not Arcadians but 300…
42. If you think I’m joking:
No. I am not.
I’m really happy when Bitcoin drops, not because I bought cheaper corn (that’s nice to have, but the $20,000 difference now means fuck off later), because it shakes up all the lemmings and losers.
A new elite is emerging whose fundamental principles and character differ from the ‘masses’ before them.”
Right now your focus should be on a few simple things:
- Earn money. Increase cash flow, generate income, use surplus to save
- Learn. Increase knowledge, gain faith, use to accumulate
- Develop a thick skin. Every lemming, naysayer, and Taleb ass-licking loser will come out of woodwork to tell you: “I told you, it’s going to zero.” This is the moment when you will truly discover how much of an individual you are and whether you can be the one to stand by the truth and honesty when times get tough.
Number three is a direct consequence of the question of whether you will become a camp guard. As Jordan Peterson puts it, most people would just “obey” because it’s easier to fit in with the crowd or the dominant narrative. Harmony and obedience are the signs of the masses.
The relic are those that cultivate and shape the beast within. ‘ they can say.no” stand their ground because it is the right, honest, and right thing to do, not because of false narrative and someone told them.
This is where identity is built, and as Tony Robbins said, the greatest strength in the human psyche is the need to stay consistent with one’s identity.
Now is the time to create the Bitcoiner’s identity. Residue. The intolerant minority. He’s the one who won’t.
Reminds me of the famous line of Leonidas, King of the Spartans.
“What is your job?”
Who will you choose to be?
Are you Arcadian or Spartan? Both are good, but now is the time to choose. Another short excerpt from the book “Why You Should Sell Your Bitcoin”:
“This journey is a parade. It’s not about being rich, it’s not even about an inheritance. It’s about starting a goddamn dynasty.
Cheap sats are a bonus, but go far beyond that.
It’s about unequally distributing Bitcoin into the hands of those who take it, care about it, and want to rocket up or ship down.
These shakes mean that future kings, lords, emperors and gods will have more.
Parasites, minions and lemmings will be less.
We are returning to the age of greatness.
The sharp fall of the Bitcoin price regularly wipes out all the shit money and get-rich-quick alt-people so royals, nobles and purebloods can rally.
Nature is healing.
This is what it looks like.
And as Randy Savage said… ‘You may not like it, but accept it’.”
This is an opportunity to learn instinctively. Only The monetary measure that matters is the amount of Bitcoin you own. If you have more today than yesterday or last week, you win.
The “exchange rate” between Bitcoin and other units of account is irrelevant because each of these units is temporary in nature. What matters is the absolute region you can accumulate in the Bitcoin network and your share in the total energy currency available.
If you can master this mindset, your grandchildren will have a foundation to build on. If you don’t, no one can help you.
This is the greatest time to live in human history. Waste. Enjoy the pain. Embrace. Let it transform you into something bigger.
You are a Bitcoiner under construction.
