They must get to you somehow. Widespread use of criptocurrencies mean that with social engineering, fake/trojaned apps or even using nsa backdoors your wallet is exposed for all the world. Social engineering is a powerful tool with bitcoin stealing trojans. Things are not so easy with bank accounts, even with all the problems they have, and of course, not with cash.
And if you don't want to rely in third-party gatekeepers, how most people will use it? In your phone? in your (for the majority, windows) pc? You can't use gatekeepers because a lot got hacked or just run with the coins, and you can't have them yourself because the most used platforms are ripe for external exploit, either making the user do something or just making popular good looking trojans.
And if that insecurity is not enough, having over that government sponsored weakened encryption algorythms and mandated backdoors don't help a lot.
We are still not ready for a distributed digital money in those terms.
I think I see why you're confused. The curse was an effective way to kick off the revolt, yes. Not any way to start an earthquake, though. Reality doesn't work that way.
OK, let's squash some of this nonsense right now.
I never believed the 2010 Haiti Erthquake was caused by a voodoo curse, and I'm astonished that anyone interpreted that post in that way. What I found anthropologically interesting is that something like Robertson's "satanic" invocation seems actually to have taken place. Not actually "satanic", but within Robertson's impoverished terms of reference that's about the only way he could describe an invocation of the loa.
I believe, and have repeatedly said, that the supposed "scientific consensus" on CAGW is not a conspiracy but an error cascade. I think most scientists are honestly trying to do right, but have been overly credulous about data and models that have been (and continue to be) fraudulently manipulated by a tiny minority of them. Those of you who think this makes me some sort of nut are going to have some explaining to do when measured GAT drops out of the bottom of the IPCC's 95% confidence band, which looks set to happen before the end of 2014.
I might reply to some of these other questions at more length, but these two deserved to be dispatched immediately
If you think that is bad enough that the government is doing it, think that in fact the ones doing it is the people of the government, the same ones that spied the conversation between US soldiers and their fiancees/wives when they were at Afganistan, and shared between themselves the hottest parts.
Probably the biggest repository of child porn of the world is in NSA servers for their "investigative" use. And we are speaking about people that have power over you and your family.
