I see a lot of people talk about how BTC will end wars and play a significant role in disincentivizing international conflict, but I'm not seeing it. I don't understand the argument that BTC can end geopolitical violence. How does it end wars? Some countries still have natural resources that another country might want; how does BTC interfere with the inclination for Country A to invade Country B for B's resources? How does BTC interfere with a theocratic state's inclination to oppress its native"heretics", or impose its leaders wills on foreigners?
I'm just not connecting the dots here. Would BTC have prevented the Iraq war? Vietnam war? Rwandan genocide? Yemeni genocide by Saudi Arabia?
