    Says Arthur Budovsky:

    For US citizens, that goes without saying ;)

    It's a life-or-death issue. Without that, they're looking at a Snow Crash scenario :eek:

    I don't know much about Liberty Reserve but it was a thought provoking read. I have some of the same concerns about BitCoins. I use and love them but like all "privacy" structures, there will be some that use the privacy just for that purpose. Others will abuse the coins with "criminality" and ruin them for the rest of us.

    There are very few activities that are considered criminal everywhere. That's true even for the two major fnords, terrorism and child abuse. Definitions of "child" and "abuse" vary widely in different parts of the world. Were Genghis Khan or George Washington terrorists or freedom fighters? It depends on whom one asks (or, at least, asked at the time). Everyone knows that they have the truth ;)
