It's an elaborate double bluff. Satoshi is the US govt/Fed/IMF or some similar consortium of 'money controller', who are quite aware that the current monetary system is out of control.
They have built bitcoin, they own a controlling amount (or are in the process of buying it... they have infinite money to do so). Over time they will engineer themselves into a position of owning a controlling amount of the network (having infinite money to devote to a data-centre or two of miners).
The endgame is that they are going to be processing most blocks and therefore collecting the bulk of transaction fees. The protocol allows the finder of a block to choose which transactions to include, meaning they can effectively block transactions that don't pay sufficient fees.
Then we are back in exactly the same situation as now, except there is no actual cash that people might transact off the books. The USD becomes the black market currency. The majority of the new BTC wealth in the hands of the few, and everyone else paying tax for the privilege of transferring money.
Carerful what you wish for
