    No problem! I also would suggest dumbing down any message you want to present. A lot. Really, really a lot. The average IQ of your country is about 80. Average. None of these people can even understand the pronunciation of the word "libertarian," much less why they may want to pronounce it. I don't even know why they would. They probably wouldn't! So actually, I would suggest one of two possible paths (not that you can't do both... if you have unlimited time and resources): either radically dumb the message down, or radically intellectually juice the message up. This second option is that you just ignore all the people in your country who are completely incapable of understanding libertarianism (as well as being incapable of pronouncing the word, which is going to be just downright annoying for you) and focus on the upper-class elites, who are capable. Option One: Make Lebanese libertarianism synonymous with something really popular to the plebes in Lebanon. In your case, possibilities would be: Islam, and.... OK, just Islam. That's pretty much the only horse you've got. So hitch 'er up! Option Two: Make Lebanese libertarianism extremely exclusive and high-level stuff that the elite and only the elite will be attracted to, or even have the equipment to understand. By refusing to compromise, water down, or even simplify, you will gain a cachet of exclusivity. By utterly refusing to attempt in the slightest to seem attractive to, or even palatable to, or even non-horrifying to, or even comprehensible to the idiotic masses, you will draw at least some curiosity from one group: powerful, intelligent, contrarian/independent young men in wealthy families with high IQs. If your ideas are as sensational as you think, this group will then adopt them. And, turns out.... that's the only group you need! True story.

    No insult. If you want to not lose, you have to not think like a loser. Did I say you are a loser? No. Are you, in fact, going to be a loser? That is for you to decide.

    There is, however, more than one interpretation of the practical (real) data. The big question is: when an uncertainty resolves (a quantum state collapses), what decides which way it resolves? What decides whether the electron goes left or right? Who decides whether the cat lives or dies? One answer is the now-standard, vanilla Copenhagen answer: both happen. "We haven't found any causal factor that would make that choice one way or the other, so both must happen! The universe splits (actually, duplicates)." A quite extreme measure to take to solve the problem! So you get an extremely large number of parallel time tracks (aka "the Multiverse"). A second answer, just as reasonable and coherent actually, and advocated by at least one great quantum physicist, is that God decides. This answer was.... not generally popular. So, instead of accepting the possibility of a cause we have not (yet) observed, we end up with a universe that's having infinite babies. Interesting. The first answer just fits more satisfyingly to the modern Zeitgeist. After all, it makes humans completely impotent and freedom and free choice utterly meaningless, and that is always a plus, believe me. Anything that makes you a victim with no control over your environment is very appealing to the r-selected mind. The Multiverse just happens! You may think you can choose excellence and beauty and self-improvement, but actually even if you do there's another copy of you that will choose the opposite. Ha, ha, loser!

    By Matt Agorist - April 21, 2017 On Thursday, John Podesta took to Twitter to post a link to a Washinton Post piece written by James Alefantis, the owner of the now famous Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington, D.C. In his Tweet, Podesta made the tasteless and terrible joke, while downplaying actual concern about the pedophilia and child trafficking that currently plagues the planet.

    Well judging by the state of Right Wing politics in Lebanon your going to have an easier time convincing people than say a country like India, Pakistan, China or Russia all of which have massive amounts of government intervention and promotion of military worship. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_parties_in_Lebanon

    It seems very cool, it seems very promising. I'm just trying to get more.... concrete. You write, "In the future you may see little risk in putting $100 into it." How do I actually put it in, though? I mean, I actually have a hundred dollar bill in my pocket right now. And, let me look.... yep, a five, too. Do I just "consider" the hundred and part of the five as earmarked as my reserve for Metric? I mean, I haven't mailed the money to anyone. It's still in my pocket. Is that a problem, or is that how the system's designed? You also wrote: "Currently "just_dollars" has three members. wizardwatson (me), poopeater69 (an old friend of mine), and helmuth_hubener. Currently only me and poopeater69 are connected. Therefore, we can pay each other because there is a path of connections between us. If you were connected to me you could pay me or poopeater69." OK. How could I pay you? I understand the commands, but... after I run the command, it seems that in real life, you do not have any more money than before. And my money is still just as much in my pocket as it was before. In order to *actually* pay you, wouldn't I have to put the money in an envelope, stamp it, and mail it to you?

    What is it designed for, then? I'm trying to understand. Could you give us a specific example or two of something one could do with Metric? I know you have already answered this, but don't get frustrated: I didn't understand. If I didn't understand, I'm pretty sure no one understands. Just a simple, simple, simple explanation of what in the world we could use this for!! :). Pretend I'm ten years old.

    So, it "advises" the different banks who needs more reserves, is that it? Does the amount of reserves advised take into account different withdrawal rates, or literally "even out" everything as you say, attempting to make all nodes have equal reserves? A busy city branch, for instance, might need more reserves than a quiet country one.

    True, physically. But legally, you are the owner. Excellent! ....??? The whole point? That is the only benefit of gold, to you? Because you can hold dollar bills in your hand too; they satisfy that standard. If you (a) want to use gold as money, and (b) you absolutely demand to hold it in your hand at all times, if that is your standard, then you have created a Catch-22 for yourself. You will need to first convince everyone with whom you wish to do business to accept gold. That is not practical. So, you're stuck with no solution.
