3D Printing, Bitcoin, the Digital Age Revolution Has Begun

Politics / Internet May 14, 2013 - 05:05 PM GMT

By: Jeff_Berwick

Politics

Welcome to the official beginning of the digital age!

When I first heard that the Internet had finally come to fruition in 1994, I could hardly contain my excitement as I'd been waiting for it since I got my first computer in 1981. When I heard about the Internet 13 years later I didn't even know what anarchism really was or had heard the word libertarian, but I instinctively knew that most problems in the world could be solved if people would just have more of an ability to communicate and to get access to real information. Having grown up in Canada, I was certain that the government's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was not giving me the full and truthful picture of the world!


However, by around 2002, eight years later I was becoming a bit sad. Everything I hoped that would come from the Internet hadn't yet happened. Heck, most of the things I had hoped hadn't happened. Many people were just starting to use email and the world wide web regularly at that point. YouTube was still three years from being created as the bandwidth simply wasn't yet there to host and play millions of videos per day. Even mySpace hadn't even been launched until a year after that. And, it's already a distant memory.

Even Facebook, which we now know is CIAbook, was still a few years away. It wasn't really until the iPhone, which was first released in 2007, that many people finally realized the power they held in their hands.

But, now, just a few years later, it has all coalesced into what I knew it would in 1994.

I declare that the true information age has started, officially, as of 2013. It's finally all come together and now the exponential growth made capable by billions of Internet users will now bring us to a new world—and not their new world order, ours. As of the latest data calculated by internetworldstats.com, 2.4 billion people are now on the Internet.

And, by these stats Asia will be leading the way and Latin America is competing for supremacy with the residents of North America.  

3-D PRINTING

It's sort of strange to think that one of the main reasons I am professing that the digital age has begun is because of "printing". If you told me that back in 1994 with my dot matrix printer that the Internet and digital revolution would result in printable handguns, I would have certainly been skeptical! But, how fast things change.

Technology is changing so fast now that you can print your own handgun in your house with an $8,000 3-D printer. It's certainly not the most advanced of weapons, currently only capable of one shot, but this changes the game.

Nation-states around the world have "outlawed" many forms of self defense devices, like guns, but of course they still exist. The main problem is buying and transporting them. Only organizations like the US government and its fascistic military industry (the military industrial complex) has the capability to sell large scale "defense" (although almost always used offensively by their clients) worldwide.  In the top 10 are seven US-based fascist military vendors, including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics and Raytheon. The other three are European.

But if you as an individual want your own self protection device, it is becoming harder and harder, no matter where you live. The nation-states have realized that if they are going to be tax farming their own citizens into oblivion, it is probably best not to allow them a way to defend themselves.

3-D printing changes all of this.

Just last week the US government and their attempts to control everything showed how impotent the state is in the digital age. Cody Wilson's Defense Distributed posted on their site last week, "This file has been removed from public access at the request of the US Department of Defense Trade Controls. Until further notice, the United States government claims control of the information."

The file had already been downloaded 100,000 times however. It's on Pirate Bay, it's on my computer and you can get it almost anywhere. How can they stop it? The only way to stop it would be to attack and try to shut down the entire Internet. Good luck doing that—finally tens of millions of youth, if not many more, have something to fight for. They can't imagine a world without the Internet and if the government tries to shut it down, they'll take their Gears of War skills out into the street with their 3-D printed guns.

And, not to mention, in a recent poll 61% of college students in the US already want the government to stay completely out of their lives.

BITCOIN

To add extra cream to this extra yummy freedom milkshake is the fact that many of Defense Distributed's creation came from donations via bitcoin!

Bitcoin is just one arm of the new revolution.

3-D printing is taking the monopoly on violence away from the government and they can't stop it. And, bitcoin is taking the monopoly on money and banking away from the government, and again, they can't stop it.

Believe me, you are going to love this beautiful new world the Digital Age has enabled.

Again, the most dangerous criminal gang on Earth, the US government, has realized bitcoin may become a problem for their fascistic monopoly and have thought about shutting it down. The CFTC just this week said they can regulate bitcoin if they want. And many other US government officials have said that they shoud shut it down.

Good luck! Where do you go to shut down bitcoin? There is no central place where bitcoin is, the same way there is no central place where the blueprints to print a gun on a 3-D printer exist.

Game, set, match.

THE ANARCHO REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN

The digital age has enabled the anarcho-revolution. Anarchy just means, according to the Greek words, "an", without, "archy" a ruler.

The new ruler is you. Meet the new revolutionaries leading the revolution.

Thanks to Angie K. for sending us that graphic.

Good friend of TDV, Adam Kokesh, also featured in that graphic is taking the cause to the street and hopes to march with 10,000 other freedom lovers in Washington, District of Criminals, with loaded firearms on July 4th. I will likely join him there.

Things are changing fast. [And to keep up with more in-depth analysis and ways to profit from these rapid changes, check out our subscription TDV newsletter. Click here to learn more.]

And, as the digital age progresses, it will only change faster.

The saying "the revolution will not be televised" has even become archaic. Television? Who watches that 1930s technology anymore?
