I must say that the debate between a fictitious perfectly capitalistic society and totalitarianism isn't convincing whatsoever. I don't need the Internet to tell me I don't want to live under Stalinism.

FWIW I do not subscribe to the false antithesis of capitalism vs socialism, I just like to play sniper in these discussions. Carry on!

Did Satoshi really believe that Bitcoin would be self-sufficient on fees alone in ~120 years or was he knowingly shifting future inflation decisions to later generations?
yes, he was sincere when he said the system could transition to run on only fees 28 votes · 5,034 satoshis
no, he was passing the buck to future generations 0 votes · 0 satoshis
not sure, this question makes me strangely uncomfortable 1 votes · 600 satoshis

"Theft" also being defined as the *inappropriate* or *criminal* taking of property; meaning, there can exist cases in which taking someone's property is justified / "not theft"

@kokansei "the economically optimal solution is always the societally optimal solution" is an assumption that may or may not be true
676d · Capitalism
@kokansei there are two different issues, optimality and efficiency
676d · Capitalism
it is also unclear that societal optima = economic optima for 100% of societal / human needs, differentiation may be critical to societal success
676d · Capitalism
belief that all markets are perfect and efficient can get us all into a lot of trouble, this is a naive view of economics
676d · Capitalism
societal suboptima can occur in markets where markets are not efficient
