For the technology crowd that as fallen on hard times since Bitcoin and friends headed down starting in 2014, there is a silver lining A quick browse through bitcointalk and you can still find threads of the cess pool that is created from a lack of awareness, lack of kindness, lack of compassion and a lack of community.

Where is this ‘Silver Lining? The DeCentralised Block/Alt chain crowd got an education in less than two years that took my parents generation 50 years.
The negative competition, back stabbing, me me me attitude, how can I extract more from others, instead of “how can I support us all growing more abundant” – “how can we work together to help us ALL break free from the chains of suppression created by the old school financial system.” My parents generation look back now, as they try and retire, many cannot, have to rely on Government to support them, to take care of them, but how can they rely on Government when the same pervasive cess pool of culture remains active within Government itself.
My parents generation look at their children and grand children, and then kick themselves for allowing such pervasive and predator based system to so entangle our lives.
The worst aspects of left and right (instead of the best), mixed in with central controllers who think of us in much the same way we think of dogs. They tell us when to rollover, when to bark, when to wake-up and when and what we can eat. They jam needles in us when they want, force pills down our throats when they want. The only difference is that at least most of us actually care for our pets, whereas the controllers clearly do not care for us.
My parents generation ponders, how are their children are going to survive, how are their grandchildren going to eat. How can a job that pays $10/hr with little benefits @ 35 hours a week pay for a home where interest itself takes nearly every dollar. How do parents provide for their children when health costs are 50% of wages? Why does a home that takes a few builders a couple months to build require a mother and father to work full time for 30 years just to pay for it?
The silver lining – the Decentralised Block/Alt Tech crowd will hopefully learn this lesson in 2 years, and still have a lifetime to change it vs my parents generation only realized how destructive this behavior is long after they had the opportunity to fix it.
I discovered Bitcointalk a couple years ago and was not even slightly interested in being a part of it – although admittedly there was some amazing technology coming out of it. I learned of NxT thru Bitcointalk and was delighted to see NxT moved to their own forum so they could create a better culture.
Then, I discovered this guy who appeared to have an amazing awareness about him, JL777 and so I followed him to SuperNET slack, clearly others did too. Soon after Fibre, then Blitz and TVE and others we’re in SuperNET Slack. Each step from Bitcointalk to NxT to SuperNET to etc. was definitely a step in the positive direction.
Then, a few months ago I discovered ‘House’ and his idea of BTCOR. I can tell you first hand, the people in BTCOR understand how powerful a little team work, a little kindness, and a little morality is to the success, especially in this day. BTCOR is not about profit at the expense of everyone else, it is a model of the future, a model that can be used by the rest of the world to be a part of the Indian Rainbow prophecy. (Look it up).
This phenomenon is not merely linear, it’s a circling spiral, extending it’s reach, branching out in entropy and self-organizing ways. People see BTCOR shine and thrive, which spawns new ideas and concepts, and reverberates back up the direction it came from, making Blitz more vibrant, SuperNET more abundant, NxT more appealing, and inevitably brings a bit of light to Bitcointalk.
