Steal This Show S04E14: Faircoin Part 2
We discuss the advantage of using Faircoin rather than Bitcoin or even Euros; the history of anarchism of in Spain and the use of pre-crypto ‘scrip’ currencies in and between anarchist communes; the need to build an infrastructure for the coming community of disaffected normies, and more.
We also take a long excursion into Enric’s backstory as the ‘Robin Hood’ of the antiglobalisation movement: how he stole half a million euros plus from banks and gave it all to anticapitalist projects, and his ensuing life in the underground. And finally, we come around to the big question: how to get to a global Commons without requiring big-state communism. Bonus: the mysterious link between Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin and Enric Duran’s commune Calafou.
