Every year the world seems to be getting crazier and more people are starting to realize that it stems from oppressive government transgressions against a peaceful society. The world has noticed millions of people from France, Hong Kong, Venezuela, Indonesia and more are rising up because citizens are sick and tired of the manipulation. Because of all the money printing, hyperinflation, capital controls, austerity measures, and privacy-invasive tactics, groups and individuals have discovered that cryptocurrencies are profound tools for achieving economic freedom and the interest in permissionless money has only just begun.
Individuals Worldwide Are Protesting Against Oppressive Governments and the Growing Wealth Disparity
Three years after the 2008 economic crisis, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests started in New York City’s Zuccotti Park and quickly spread across the world. OWS protest camps were staged internationally and there were many other types of similar demonstrations like the Arab Spring protests, the British student protests, the bank bail-out protests, and the Iranian election demonstrations. All of these activists had been fighting against economic inequality and the huge wealth disparity within the world. Now, little more than eight years later, people are rising up again for the same reasons. Revolution-style protests are taking place in Argentina, Venezuela, Indonesia, Netherlands, France, India, Russia, Hong Kong, Chile, Lebanon, Peru, Haiti, Egypt and Syria, and the whole world is watching closely.
The Argentines have literally watched their government destroy the economy slowly. The socialist leaders recently initiated currency controls as the country’s central planners have failed to fend off hyperinflation. In September, the Argentine government told the public the peso was extremely weak and restricted foreign currency purchases.
