Ways To Think Through Critical Issues | Aleks Svetski

The Mark Moss Show

Today I'm sitting with my good buddy Aleks Svetski, and we're going to discuss a problem I see in the world today that's very detrimental for millions of people. Which is the lack of being able to think under critical circumstances. Reading and drawing conclusions from headlines doesn't draw real solutions, because it's partial reading. There's so much distortion in the markets today, and sometimes we get stuck making arguments at levels we shouldn't be discussing things. Like Blackrock is buying all the homes up. They're stealing the American Dream from young couples, and forcing them into serfdom, now they have to rent. They're buying them 35% over market value, because they're being given free money from The Fed. In my comments they're saying 'this is wrong', 'this is horrible', 'should be illegal' — and I agree but I don't believe there should be a law, like why don't we just take away the money printer that gives them the power in the first place. And that's what we're discussing today. 👇Follow Aleks Svetski👇 Twitter: https://twitter.com/ghostofsvetski?s=21 🔥 Join BlockFi today and get up to $250 🔥 https://go.1markmoss.com/BlockFi The Market Disruptors Podcast is hosted by Mark Moss and two times per week he sits down Builders, Investors, and Leaders in the Crypto and Blockchain space to find out What they are doing, How they are doing it, and What are the things we can learn from them to give us an edge in the markets and space overall.

Why Bitcoin is Intelligent w/ Aleks Svetski

Bitcoin Magazine Podcast

Aleks Svetski discussed his “Intelligent Guide To Bitcoin” and the misunderstandings about BTC that are often perpetuated. Many in the traditional financial space, government and academia have long dismissed Bitcoin as a silly toy for criminals and predicted that its price will go to zero. These predictions remain commonplace in the mainstream media to this day, despite the network’s astounding growth and the currency blasting past $30,000 prices and making inroads across the global economy. Upon reading a recent example of these crypto dismissal articles from an Australian professor, titled the “Dummies Guide To Crypto,” Aleks Svetski — CEO of Bitcoin DCA app Amber and Bitcoin Magazine contributor — felt that he needed to respond.  Svetski agrees with the author of the “Dummies Guide” that “crypto” is trash and that there is very little substance to the general “crypto” market. Aleks does however disagree that these assumptions are also true for Bitcoin. The reality is that Bitcoin is a very well thought out solution to a very important problem that has been plaguing humanity. Aleks’ response to the “Dummies Guide” is “The Intelligent Guide To Bitcoin.” In the article, Svetski covered what Bitcoin is, whether people should invest in it, the mining and energy factors and its downsides. “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast” host Christian Keroles sat down with Svetski to discuss the key points in the article and debate how to best articulate them to people that think Bitcoin is just a silly toy.

Read_523 - Fiat, Fascism, & Communism [Aleks Svetski]

Why The Fed and Totalitarian Control Will Fail & How To Protect Yourself | Aleks Svetski

The Mark Moss Show

Why The Fed and Totalitarian Control Will Fail & How To Protect Yourself | Aleks Svetski The conversation you're about to get into is one of the best conversations I've ever done on this channel, and it's also the longest over my average interviews. I know this might not be the typical content I normally release on my channel, talking over financial stuff. However, it's very important (I highly recommend you watch this). Robert Kiyosaki taught me that 25 years ago to imagine a glass, and what you can put inside is the content (and imagine the cup as the 'context'). Sometimes you need a bigger cup to put 'content' inside of, and this is what this interview is about, to help expand your thinking and to possibly change your life. We speak on where the future is going, what type of systems do we have, and what we can do to protect ourselves in the future. We get into how to discern truth and we make complex things simple, (which I always try to do for my viewers). It's important to understand and be aware of the Psyops the government has ran on society over the last few decades to enslave us, mentally. We've been given a artificial problem, with an artificial solution. Be sure to stay tuned, I asked Aleks very important questions for my viewers to see the world from another glass, so stay tuned.
