WiM010 - Dear Eric Weinstein
03:05:55

Introduction

00:00:04 – 00:05:14 Why Eric Weinstein?

00:05:15 - 00:09:57The purpose of this conversation - Building our Portal

00:09:58 - 00:15:33Zooming out - The parameters of our Portal

We’re living through cultural and economy decay

00:15:33 - 00:23:18 Bitcoiners vs. Weinstein – What we agree on (Or: We’re living through cultural and economic decay

00:23:19 - 00:27:40 WTF happened in 1971? – Systemic Rot

00:27:41 - 00:31:42 Skin in the Game – The limits of the Keynesian perspective

00:31:44 - 00:33:41A stall in innovation in physics - Weinstein’s perspective

Why mainstream explanations come up short

00:33:42 - 00:38:02The money is the root, not theoretical physics

00:38:03 - 00:44:09Keynesian’s are too zoomed in

00:44:06 - 00:47:07Gen X vs. Millennial perspectives

00:47:08 - 00:53:46Millennial disillusionment in art and popular culture

00:53:46 - 01:03:54The monetary system is the unseen cause

01:03:58 - 01:14:23Meme wars - Why Bitcoin wins

The history of money

01:14:24 - 01:19:08The function of money

01:19:08 - 01:21:16Why gold emerged as money

01:21:17 - 01:22:33How gold empowered civilisations to become great

01:22:34 - 01:26:56Why we moved beyond gold

01:26:58 - 01:32:29Money, standards and social scalability

Fiat money is the root of the problem

01:32:37 - 01:42:21Money is the base layer of civilisation

01:38:39 - 01:42:20Fiat money is decivilizing

01:42:21 - 01:52:20Corrupting the money is the cause of decay

01:52:20 - 01:56:57The problems with Weinstein’s perspective

How problems with the money are causing societal decay

01:57:02 - 02:03:10Fiat money robs society of its course-correction mechanism

02:03:12 - 02:06:42Fiat money insulates society from the consequences of its actions

02:06:43 - 02:09:34Fiat money gives power to Wall Street

02:09:35 - 02:14:41Good money creates great civilizations 

02:14:42 - 02:20:55Fiat money embeds dishonesty into the system

Bitcoin is the solution, Bitcoin is the future

02:30:44 - 02:30:43Bitcoin is the bedrock for a new society, economy and morality

02:33:22 - 02:33:21To understand Bitcoin’s implications is to understand the future

02:38:57 - 02:38:56Bitcoin accelerates the transition to the digital age

02:58:20 - 03:05:51A Bitcoin future is a hopeful future
