Max Keiser to Russell Brand: “Bitcoin. There’s your revolution.”

Russell Brand’s recent BBC interview, where he called for revolution, but did not know how, has inspired Max Keiser to remark: “Bitcoin is the currency of the resistance. Allowing people to create their own economy so that it works for them, not the kleptocrats.” Starting at $1 a coin, it now trades at $200 a coin. As Keiser says, “Bitcoin is now an asset class.”

We discuss the revolutionary solution that takes money and power from those who hate and gives it to those who will no longer wait for celebrities and pundits to cogitate, agitate and debate whether or not wristbands and hashtags – oh so quaint – can stop the plunder and pillage by the conmen, hucksters, and banksters backed by the state. Yes, bitcoin. The currency is already creating economic value across Africa, China and the developing world while Brits destroy economic value by moving their money into yet another corrupt bank. In the second half, Max interviews Simon Dixon of about peer to peer lending and the future in which the population can deploy their own capital in more productive ways.

    I am totally confused. I thought that mankind was on the verge of some hyper awareness….an evolution of consciousness. I do not see Bitcoin as a solution for the billions of souls “smothering in an airtight cage of poverty”. This is more of the same misogynistic paradigm that offers nothing of any value to those who have no disposable income to purchase “bitcoins”.
    I think we need to change our materialistic values in order to create a system with real meaning.
    Would it not be better to barter, trade and apprentice rather than use the same format as the current one?

    • Jamie, yes, I agree with you in the need for a transformation of values. You might read Charles Eisenstein’s Sacred Economics to help you with your confusion. It sure helped me! Meanwhile, we can view bitcoin as an interim step, eroding the power of the current banking system. And why not view bit coin as an “asset class” meanwhile? Buy one bitcoin, and see it rise in value over time.

      I haven’t viewed the full Keiser Report yet, but I do notice that he speaks about peer-to-peer lending at the end of it. That’s another interim step. Sacred Economics really has a grip on all of this. There isn’t going to be a sudden changeover from one way of circulating energy to another, rather a series of adjustments, I expect.

      Hey Jamie, I think I kind of agree with you. Those who have the power to accumulate excess money build a paradigm to enable them to have the ultimate advantage to take more of that wealth for themselves. Bitcoin is definitely not the currency of the poor , the dispossessed, the vulnerable and those who are sleeping rough on streets throughout Europe.
