Not voting is a decision that gives consent to whatever happens as a result of your apathy.
Not voting reveals the system for what it is: violence concealed by the division of labor.
Voting in an election is as moral as bidding in a slave auction. In both cases participation gives both processes the illusion of legitimacy they do not deserve.

Are you going to claim you had no hand in putting him there?
I've never voted in a presidential election, for exactly that reason.

I don't know what to do except keep my passport up to date. Western civilization is slowly comitting suidice, on many fronts.
Learning is slowly being made illegal and replaced with schooling.
Chemistry sets were effectively banned a long time ago as a side effect of the war on drugs.
I'm pretty sure that "trustless mixing" is the very same method as described here. This method requires no changes to the bitcoin protocol and I'm fairly certain is in at least limited use today, given that there's been software released to facilitate it.
You're ruining someone's troll post by bringing facts into the conversation.
