Has Bitcoin changed the way the left thinks?

I’ve always considered myself a left-wing progressive type…or, in my opinion, someone who takes pride in putting people’s daily needs ahead of the interests of corporations or the rich.

I grew up in a coastal city with liberal parents, went to progressive schools, and could spit Marxist critiques of anything you throw at me. The equitable distribution of wealth across classes – and the narrowing of the wealth gap – has been at the forefront of my political consciousness as far as I can remember.

Fast forward to learning about Bitcoin and I quickly began to understand the current economic injustice Paper money policies, and how to use government control of the US dollar to “make the rich richer” at the expense of almost everyone else.
