We Choose to Build

“On Saturday we ushered in a new era of space travel – we were traveling to the stars while the cities burn below.

I’m struck by the juxtaposition.

One man kicks in a window and steals $500 worth of H&M shirts. Another prints billions in bailouts for his cronies. Only one of these things is a crime.

I’m struck by the juxtaposition.

But burning isn’t our focus. That’s not where we’ll spend our energy. We don’t want to burn it down. We want to build it up.

Crypto is peaceful protest.

We want to provide an open alternative to the world. A lifeboat. A better system.

We see the terrible juxtapositions in our societies and we choose to build.
