Gigi destroys a shitcoiner for claiming Bitcoin maximalists are “siding with the state” for dunking on centralized “defi”

If you think that maximalists are siding with the state, you are literally retarded, and I'm not even sorry for saying that. It's a harsh truth that you better learn now than later.

For years now bitcoiners have been trying to warn you guys that (a) decentralization is actually important (b) good opsec is paramount (c) the whole point is the separation of money and state, nothing else.

This is not a game, as is hopefully becoming more evident by the day. It's not all unicorns and happy paths, it's fucking velociraptors that will maul you to death at the first chance they get.

What happened to the TC dev is absolutely disgusting, and no bitcoiner I know is cheering for it. To the contrary, many high-profile bitcoiners have spoken out about the insanity of the legal precedent it sets.

Either code is speech or it isn't. Either free speech means something or it doesn't. Either peaceful civilians are allowed to send messages to each other or not. If not, the authoritarians show their cards clearly, and so be it.

The whole fucking point of bitcoin is that WHAT AUTHORITARIANS THINK DOES NOT MATTER, it is resilient from the ground up, censorship-resistant from first principles.

This is why it is important that people can run full nodes, cheaply. This is why open-source and self-sovereign tools are essential. This is why decentralization actually matters. This is why PoW is used.

Maximalists should absolutely be dunking on DeFi, because DeFi is CeFi and CeFi can be killed easily. When it comes to the separation of money and state, ONLY THE STRONG WILL SURVIVE.
