„The term "Bitcoin Society" shortened as"B-Society" is very interesting: implying a society powered by Bitcoin, incentivizing and rewarding honest trade, creation and interactions. "Be Society", insinuating that you are ultimately the one who can have an impact on the status quo, the idea being that you ARE society (at the very least a part of it). If you are society, and engage in honest proof of work, this becomes part of society. There's also the notion of"Alternative B Society", the idea being that "Alternative A" is a Silicon Valley-esque dystopia where machines and code rules, and with no repercussions for their creators, whereas a Bitcoin Society allows us to "measure" value more accurately and give ownership of data, rather than hand it over in ignorance (e.g. not understanding that signing up for a website is giving away valuable data for free). Bitcoin is the alternative, a way for a hyper-interconnected society to stay honest and just.“
"There is no government"
Published by CSW on June 20, 2019
The core of a democratic republic is the right to differ and dissent; this includes the right to disagree with the powers that be.It is a right to words, to elucidate to others. It is the right to use rhetoric and argument to persuade. It is not the right to fund crime, it is not the right to terrorism.
All society is created from many voices.
These people, even the greatest amongst us, differ. We hold opposing and conflicting views.
I support the right to debate these. This is the heart of all free government and free liberal society.
You have a right to say others are in error, but not to defame. For that is a means to silence and stop discourse and discussion.
Bitcoin was never a tool for crime nor for anarchy; rather, it is a means to allow people to have a voice. It is a means to curb corruption and to hold people to account. I created bitcoin to ensure that the people can have a voice, that they can trade and that they are safe from predation. We the people call for an honest system, a system that allows us to strive, to seek and strive for success and happiness even if we know it is an arduous path.We the people call for a system of laws we can review and debate and a world that is open to all.This is bitcoin.
Aristotle taught us, how man alone has a sense of good and evil; of justice and injustice. He instructed us that "justice is the principle of order in human society". In the Federalist papers (No. 51), James Madison taught us "Justice is the end of government. It is the end of civil society. It has ever been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until Liberty be lost in the pursuit".
No society may obtain wisdom but through the love of wisdom. But, the love of wisdom is a long path that requires determination and a willingness to learn and grow and listen to others.
There is no government, that is an abstract term. There are people. We are the government. We, the people in a democratic society choose the rules and laws we are to be governed by. To be in a society requires law, and to develop a just society requires order. We are the people and we are the government.
To attack government, not to debate and engage is to attack the people in a society.
To be free requires seeing that we are a part of a larger order, and to understand that we act within a bound of others.

Dr Craig Wright & Jimmy Nguyen @ Oxford Union
Bitcoin and Blockchain
An Australian computer scientist and businessman, Wright has claimed to be the engine of the team that created Bitcoin and the true identity of “Satoshi Nakamoto”. He will be joined by his business partner Jimmy Nguyen, the CEO of nChain. Together they aim to restore the original Bitcoin protocol, to keep it stable, and to enable massive on-chain scaling, to promote the global growth of their new Bitcoin SV. With all of Bitcoin’s recent controversy, they aim to restore its place as the dominant and safe global cryptocurrency.

Breakdown of all Satoshi's Writings Proves Bitcoin not Built Primarily as Store of Value
Published by Sam Patt on 06 Jun 2019
The claim “Bitcoin was purpose-built to first be a Store of Value” is false. Many of Satoshi’s statements shown as evidence for this claim are taken out of context. When those statements are placed in context and considered alongside all his writings, it’s undeniable that Bitcoin was not built to first be a store of value, but was built for payments.
