When you sign the petition, you may leave a comment as I did:

Large criminal organizations like Google and Facebook are in violation of the U.S. Constitution in their censorship of the Internet. The free flow of information and opinion is essential to a functioning free society, and overbearing corporations like Google and Facebook must be dismantled and their officers prosecuted for treason.

I am an expat because I refuse to live under a corporate militarized police state. Everywhere I go I urge people to boycott all products of mega-corporations: Do not drink Coca Cola, do not eat at McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut. Do not patronize WalMart or Amazon. Close your Facebook account.

Do not watch television. Turn your back to CNN and Fox. Do not accept mendacious reporting or propaganda.

When you buy a Bitcoin you are telling criminal bankers of JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs that you are a free person opposed to their crimes. Let these criminal enterprises fail. Starve them. Buy Bitcoin.

"mendacious" one of those words that should be immediately followed by "Mother Fucker!"

Yes, buy a digital currency which in no way can be artificially manipulated by anyone with a moderately-sized server farm.

You're advocating swapping a relatively stable economic system for an unstable one based almost entirely upon perceived worth with no tangible value. One which is dependent upon an electronic computing network which, in turn, is almost entirely dependent upon the infrastructure built and maintained by your much lamented mega-corporations. Who do you think brings you your internet connection in whatever backwater country you chose to exile yourself?

Your overall message is fine, but to ignore the scope and influence of global corporatization as if you can just choose to completely extricate yourself from it is to ignore reality. That's not changing the status quo of a corrupt system - that's a feeble attempt to run and hide from it, comfortably couched in willful ignorance.

The only reason the sheeple aren't listening to you is because you speak too much truth.

At first I thought I might give a fuck about this post.

Then, upon some serious reflection that took about .32 seconds, I realized that you should just go fuck yourself.

Christ am I glad to be an expat. Americans are soooooo ignorant. Beer and football are all you know. Your six-fingered kids will be happy too as Net Neutrality ends and we enter the New Dark Age.

I just signed a petition to have you banned from ever posting anything on the internet.

The only people telling others to buy bitcoin are those who are mining bitcoins from processing bitcoin transactions*. Why would I buy one bitcoin for (today) USD8159.11 when for the same money I can buy servers and a few high-speed internet connections and use them to generate my own bitcoin by doing basically nothing beyond setting up the network? And why would I choose to "bank" within a system that pays no interest, charges fees for everything I do with my bitcoins, and is only as reliable as the hackers, the internet service providers and the power companies permit it to be?

*In the bitcoin economy the only form of "work" that "pays" a "wage" is bitcoin mining - processing bitcoin transactions. You don't do that yourself; your huge server farm with the multiple GBps internet connections does that. You don't have one of those? It's a safe bet that the bitcoin equivalents of JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs sure do, and it's also a safe bet that they are big enough to get to decide what the base per-transaction remuneration rate (read: "minimum wage") will be.

Yeah. Maybe I do have the right ... What's that stuff?
