BingoBoingo: Anyways, we&apos;ve got this Republic which is sovereign. We&apos;ve got a lord of lords in MP. Does not paying mike_c maximize coin that certainly stays inside TMSR, sure. Does not paying mike_c reduce the space in which Lords can credibly extract rents from those who&apos;ve touched Pantsuit in the past, I very strongly suspect so.

diana_coman: might as well towards-purposing all along; that&apos;s not at all what "republic of men, not laws" means to me.
BingoBoingo: The fact that he valued voice, whether MPEx pays him out or not... I don&apos;t see how that isn&apos;t submission. In his best case he gets coin out, maybe he does turn it all over to hostile parties. He agreed that in his worst case where MPEx does not pay him out... his coin stays with Republican interests.
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: Right. As asciilifeform is still politically alligned with the Republic, I find the proposal agreeable in creating a second opportunity to demonstrate continuing submission.
BingoBoingo: After being brought up to speed on relevant matters the Republic has explored in his extended absence, mike_c countered my proposal with one that sees him out an extra 5 BTC over my initial proposed structure whether he recovers his coin or not.
BingoBoingo: The problem of the Republic and the Negrated is not "What does the Republic owe the negrated", the problem is... are those negrated for their absence capable of submission after returning. Is doing something other than submitting an option they hallucinate.

BingoBoingo: Topic: You have reached the public forum of The Most Serene Republic, a terrorist organisation dedicated to the creation of a safe space for the elites to productively defect to, leaving the pantsuit stranded behind.

mircea_popescu: it&apos;s not a matter of "oh, we handled phuctor story" ; it&apos;s a matter of "failed to present republic with fifty virgin transsexuals and fifty million in cash post haste ? awwww..."
lobbes: Is there something I&apos;m missing? I pressed using mod6&apos;s V and created the vpatch using the "classic" vdiff described in http://cascadianhacker.com/07_v-tronics-101-a-gentle-introduction-to-the-most-serene-republic-of-bitcoins-cryptographically-backed-version-control-system

mircea_popescu: that&apos;s all i&apos;m saying, not that pizarro&apos;s no good or anything in the vein, but that the flow flows like it flows. republic mgiht pick some people from pizarro rooster for enoblement, not pizarro might pick some people from lordship for making a sale.
mircea_popescu: anyway, in the general, a most important chore of the republic is to destroy the economic basis of "paris", ie the notional metropolis,
mircea_popescu: anyway. the world&apos;s salvation is work for the world&apos;s own hands. i feel no obligation towards it ; i feel an obligation towards my having a good time and that&apos;s all. if the world&apos;s ready to work i&apos;ll show it how and if it&apos;s not ready to work i&apos;ll just talk to my girls. the only thing with something to lose in the republic-world binome is the world.
mircea_popescu: the republic loses nothing / gains nothing whether adlai/framedragger/whatever is in or out.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform of course. most of the apparently functional parts of the empire are simply republican-tech-with-serials-filed-off, in this case "implicit" rather than explicit.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, since we&apos;re doing lost arts, where the fuck did i state the pantsuit&apos;s problem of integration (ie, that pantsuitism doesn&apos;t stand a chance in the republic because the republic integrates it) in the terminology that "this sword cuts for them a portion of the way and for us the whole way" ? ie, that they&apos;re always dependent on state, whatever shit they come up with gotta be carefully ~stopped~ on various slippery
mircea_popescu: read the thing quoted. it says http://btcbase.org/log/2018-03-08#1787189 and http://btcbase.org/log/2018-03-08#1787190 for a fucking reason. that reason is, that for as long as freenode persists in "code of conduct" and "women aren&apos;t meat" and assorted nonsense, the republic is wealthy, and the republic is powerful, and yes someone will pay so that hilary "inexplicably" loses "the election".

mod6: Lords and Ladies of The Most Serene Republic: The Bitcoin Foundation&apos;s State of Bitcoin Address for July: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2018-August/000306.html
mircea_popescu: the republic&apos;s ideology has just about caught up with the state of the art cca 1948, and we can in fact very directly use rosenberg terminology to explain why the pantsuit are so fucking objectionable, both ethically and aesthetically.
mircea_popescu: because unlike the empire, where they speak to feel good, like birds chirping, the republic has the log and the mechanism of inference, one can very effectually land self in soup. all it takes is apply the "i want everyone to be happy" imperial process for a few passes, until you&apos;ve loaded yourself into such a ball of inference no one can possibly managed.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform consider eg that pizarro doesn&apos;t need to undertake the (significant, and unbounded) cost of writing "code of conduct" or "terms of service" or any of the other nonsense. things have changed. nude bitcoin is dangerous in the sense discussed in 2012, but bitcoin-as-currency-of-the-republic eminently usable today.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-24#1837476 << more generally, actually : that you&apos;re so fucking private about what&apos;s doubtless a public point of concern, namely the strange case of the conversion of a member of the republic&apos;s lordship smells to me of a colossal wasted opportunity.
mircea_popescu: in any case, any fix to the "why is republic so weak commercially ??" question will contain ample doses of beating the "i did enough work -- as compared to line average" approach out of the hopefuls.
mod6: Lords and Ladies of The Most Serene Republic: The Bitcoin Foundation&apos;s vtree has been updated with asciilifeform&apos;s Aggressive PushGetBlocks vpatch. The TRB-HowTo Guide has been updated as well.
asciilifeform: afaik the only republical item that builds unmodified on current crapple is http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-18#1835881 , and strictly from eschewing pretty much any nontrivial posixism
mircea_popescu: phf specifically, i do not believe "they know that usually they can&apos;t get it upfront, because nobody expects to pay for software" is at all related. rather, "they know it makes no sense to get before-the-shipping money". because think in terms of those who invented commerce, to wit http://trilema.com/2014/the-most-serene-republic-and-its-laws/#selection-69.178-69.401 : what the fuck sense does it make for he to pay you ~befor
mircea_popescu: specifically : if say BingoBoingo decided to buy himself a farm in that republica oriental ; and if on that farm other than the venezuelana an&apos; the peruana he added a columbiana and whatever else ; and if those produced him over some years a good three dozen offspring, good heifers that they were ; and if his sperm was so utterly macho that all the x&apos;n commited suicide on the spurt out of sheer shame leaving nothing but boys
mod6: Lords and Ladies of The Most Serene Republic, my personal node is again fully sync&apos;d and chugging along. I have re-added it to the list of advertised republican nodes.
mircea_popescu: suppose there&apos;s a measure of human fitness, not quite IQ but anyway, just as insanely, a positive integer scalar. suppose there&apos;s a measure of human confusion, going from 0 (full pantrsuit, actually believes socialism is a thing, etc) to 1 (actual republican).
