My model: Morality is a set of ethics most likely to achieve some result. Morality only makes sense in the pursuit of an objective. What should be the objective? That is what we must as a civilization decide. What is it that we want? This is philosophy and the answer is right in the name. Love and wisdom. How should love and wisdom manifest itself? This is actually an extremely difficult question, and our whole society is an organism designed to figure this out, and its learning, and getting better as it goes along. Here is what it has figured out so far: Capitalism. Socialism.

The only definition of rationality that I found that is practically, empirically, and mathematically rigorous is that of survival –and indeed, unlike the modern theories by psychosophasters, it maps to the classics. Anything that hinders one’s survival at an individual, collective, tribal, or general level is deemed irrational.

My strategy in the post is to build Bitcoin up in stages. I’ll begin by explaining a very simple digital currency, based on ideas that are almost obvious. We’ll call that currency Infocoin, to distinguish it from Bitcoin. Of course, our first version of Infocoin will have many deficiencies, and so we’ll go through several iterations of Infocoin, with each iteration introducing just one or two simple new ideas. After several such iterations, we’ll arrive at the full Bitcoin protocol. We will have reinvented Bitcoin!

Nazis who protest the removal of statues, and the ancestors of slaves who seek their removal both agree the statues symobolize white supremacy.
