Bitcoin makes Marx's dreams come true ", claims Mark Alizart. What dreams? Above all, the hope of a system that can distribute power among the people, a social order that enables equality and freedom without intermediaries and power classes.
Before the revolution came the Reformation, Alizart continues: As princes conveyed political power, the priests and the church conveyed the divine until Martin Luther laid the foundation for a direct relationship with God that everyone read the Bible for themselves. A distribution of a divine approach is here both the goal and the means. This does not end in anarchy, but in a new law owned by all in a new "communist" community.
Symbiosis, mutual help and usefulness characterize higher life forms.
The reference to religion also becomes an opportunity to point out that the word "credit" comes from the word "crede", to believe. Trust and faith are also the crucial but weak link in the monetary system. The modern state is, as Alizart reads Marx, itself a function of the market.
