Issue #593: Don't fuck up the money, exhibit 147

Here's a great thread from our boi Conner Brown in which he recounts the way the founding fathers fucked up the money quickly after establishing their independence from England. I highly recommend you check it out when you get a chance (the thread is longer than what you see above) as this is a great example of how state-issued money can and will eventually fail.

This has been a big theme around these parts recently, "don't fuck up The Money". Something we humans in 2019 have been warned about numerous times throughout history from philosophers, founding fathers, Iranian history and many other sources but we seemed to have missed the message. We here at the Ƀent feel it is our duty to help spread these warning from our much wiser forefathers and will continue to do so as more examples cross our desk.

If you're interested in learning about hard money, the opposite of fucking up the money, I recorded an interview with Saifadean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard, for Real Vision that you can check out here if you're a Real Vision subscriber. Hope you enjoy.

Final thought...

Routines are pretty dope sometimes.
