The Establishment Panic at Cryptocurrency

“When Kingsley Amis encountered the works of D. H. Lawrence, he was left unimpressed by yet another great denouncer and missionary the English send ‘themselves to tell them they are crass, gross, lost, dead, mad and addicted to unnatural vice.’ With little charity, Amis suggested leaving the didactic novelist on ‘on his pinnacle, inspiring, unapproachable and unread.’ Leaving aside matters of inspiration, much the same can be said of Hillary Clinton, failed US presidential candidate, tenured alarmist grump, ever worried about inroads being made into establishment power by rogue elements keen to snatch the crown of power. One of them, in her mind, is the threat posed by cryptocurrency.” (11/23/21)
