Commonalities


In the 1980s, I invented an SF story plot idea about various countries and groups creating their own digital currencies.
These were fiat currencies, in the sense that the issuer could always create more virtual currency units. Each unit was its own self-actualizing computer program.
Some of these made-up currencies would explode in value as they became popular in the world economy.
Real-life crypto currencies are much better than this, since the number of currency units that can be created is limited. But they are also absurdly wasteful, not to mention unfair to late adopters.

BLM activists and their government/media supporters are strongly opposed to the police. They want them defunded or maybe even abolished. People's commissars would maintain the peace and enforce the Will of the People as relayed by the Party vanguard instead.
Well I'm against the police too, but for quite different reasons.
In practical terms, the police are the ones who make it impossible for those who need it to get euthanasia.
