Save the world. Lower your time preference.— Marty Bent (@MartyBent) July 31, 2020
In a world in which politics has become nothing more than a circus, Marxist tendencies are on the rise, those who are tasked with protecting the vulnerable turn out to protect evil, and governments and central banks have grown drunk with power the most beneficial thing one can do to help bring about a better future is lower their time preference.
It’s going to take a while to fix the systemic issues that exist in our society. Make no mistake. However, it is possible. If more and more individuals begin to lower their time preference we can begin to restructure the pillars that hold up a society worth living in. This means getting back to basics. Start by acquiring bitcoin and convincing others to do so. Bitcoin is the best savings technology the world has ever seen as it preserves your purchasing power over time and respects your time on this planet. Start accumulating capital to deploy in the future. Aim to build a strong family. Get involved in your local community. Take care of your health by working out and eating well.
These simple things combined and implemented by a great number of individuals are how we fix this society. No more misallocation of capital and time due to the easiness of money printing. Many individuals saving for the future and deploying capital after years of thoughtfulness about putting that capital to work will yield things that are worth building and stand the test of time. Building a strong family and instilling values within your children are investments that pay off in the form of well functioning adults who understand respect, civility and hard work. Getting involved in your community helps to develop trust that so many who are disconnected from their communities lack today. Taking care of your health by eating well and exercising ensures that you’re around to accumulate capital, continue having a positive influence on your family, and set a good example for those in your community.
Things may look pretty bleak now, but they can be fixed. It will take time and a critical mass of individuals deciding to lower their time preference. Humans have never had better tools to enact this change than we do today.
I feel like I’m getting better at golf.
Enjoy your weekend, freaks.
