De-Centralized Cryptocurrency is the New Capitalism

Remember, remember!

The fifth of November,

The Gunpowder treason and plot;

I know of no reason

Why the Gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot!


It’s always been interesting to me that a worldwide movement called Anonymous was built from the script of a Hollywood movie. V for Vendetta and its use of the Guy Fawkes mask has symbolized the resistance to a corrupt and power-hungry elite for years now.  Masks are some of the most powerful symbols used by humans and the Anonymous mask is no different. (Reference the last line of my article titled The Geopolitics of XRP – “No more masks”.)

The movie portrayed Guy Fawkes as something of an “almost hero” if only he had succeeded in blowing up England’s House of Parliament on November 5, 1605. At the time the House of Parliament was controlled by the Protestants.  The real Guy Fawkes was a Catholic and the time period was one of extreme political tension as the Vatican waged its Counter-Reformation to regain control of lost real estate and governmental institutions.  

Alec Ryrie in his excellent book titled Protestants makes the historical case that Protestants are men and women who stood steadfast in the face of authority and set out to make a new world based on the principles of material and spiritual freedom. Ryrie states that the modern world is a product of Protestantism, as are the very ideals of Capitalism. 

America was made by Protestants as these very special men and women set out to build a new world separate from the corruption of the Catholic Church and Pope. The battle for the future of Europe and North America has been going on now for over 500 years. The American midterm elections on November 6, 2018, are a continuation of this back and forth battle for the heart and soul of the Western Man. 


Guy Fawkes and his companions

Did the scheme contrive,

To blow the King and Parliament

All up alive. 

Threescore barrels, laid below,

To prove old England’s overthrow.

But, by God’s providence, him they catch,

With a dark lantern, lighting a match!

A stick and a stake

For King James’s sake! 


Alex Ryrie also provides an overview of how Protestantism is still spreading in the modern world. China, Korea, Africa, and Latin America are all experiencing a resurgence of Protestantism.  In my article The Massacre of Protestant Rwanda we explore how Protestantism was spreading from Rwanda across Central Africa and how the Catholic Church was complicit in the genocide of Protestant Rwanda.  Even in China today there is mass persecution of Christians, which are predominantly Protestant, or of Protestant origins. 

The Order of the Jesuits was created by the Vatican to wage the Counter-Reformation.  Though it goes against the accepted historical narrative, there is ample evidence to suggest that the Jesuits were responsible for the creation of Communism, and its ideological roadmap of Marxism. Whatever your position may be on that, it is accepted fact today that the Church has become “progressive” and is supporting the worldwide Marxist revolution. It is my conclusion that Marxism is just another variation of the authoritarianism of the Catholic Church which forced the Protestants to search out, and build, a new world in the first place.

Marxist regulations under the guidance of its Socialist modeling brought Capitalism to its knees over the last century.  The regulations which contributed to the re-distribution of wealth from the middle class to the elite built the false-narrative that Capitalism was evil. All Capitalist were thereafter portrayed in Hollywood movies as evil white men who were fat on their decadence and greed. This pattern has been repeated in movies hundreds of times and is undeniable to the honest observer.  

The Central Bank framework was developed by the Church and Jesuits as a strategy to wage the Counter-Reformation.  This was covered in my article Central Banks as a Jesuit Counter-Strategy to the Protestant Reformation. Considering America was built by Protestants who stood against the Church the reason for American resisting a central bank for as long as it did makes more sense. Central Banks and Socialist regulations destroyed traditional Capitalism. But like the Protestants themselves, the ideals of Capitalism are extremely hard to get rid of.

Chris Herd in his short but excellent article titled Why Cryptocurrency is the Next Operating System for Capitalism makes the case that cryptocurrency will eradicate this banking framework and breath life into a new Capitalism. 

“In the same way Amazon has brutalised physical retail, Cryptocurrency will eradicate banks. If you don’t see this coming you aren’t paying attention.”

Herd suggests that throughout history technology has always disrupted existing systems. In fact, it was the creation of the printing press which in fact made the Protestant Reformation possible, as it allowed for the mass printing of Bibles in languages other than Latin. For the first time ever, the people could read the Bible without the filters of the Catholic gatekeepers. 

Herd ends his article with this inspiring sentence:

“Capitlism isn’t going anywhere though. Cryptocurrency is simply a more efficient vessel which allows for its manifest destiny to be realised.”

That one sentence encapsulates my full thought process on blockchain technology and a new Capitalism which is rising to counter the corrupt Marxism of a centralized Globalization which has failed most of the world. (See my article Globalization 2.0 with XRP)


If you won’t give me one,

I’ll take two,

The better for me,

And the worse for you.

A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,

A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,

A pint of beer to wash it down,

And a jolly good fire to burn him.

Holloa, boys! Holloa, boys! Make the bells ring!

Holloa, boys! Holloa boys! God save the King!

Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!


A lot is at stake in the coming months. Those who wage the Counter-Reformation have used both terrorism and Cultural Marxism to achieve its nefarious ends. Like Guy Fawkes in 1605, if the Counter-Reformers can’t take control of governments through fair elections than they will have no problem committing acts of terrorism to overthrow and destroy those institutions. 

Hollywood movies, the magic wand of the Cultural Marxists, have done a lot to further the goals of the Counter-Reformation and to destroy the Protestants. The Trump Agenda represents the ideals and continuation of the Protestant Reformation. This is why all of Hollywood and the establishment media are against Trump. Their open hatred is undeniable. 

The Counter-Reformers are attempting to take control of the new technologies, and like the printing press, eventually, use them for their own means while removing the power of the new innovations from the Protestants.

The next time you think the Anonymous group(s) or the Guy Fawkes mask represent the resistance to evil corrupt elites in this world, I would ask that you take a deeper look and consider the origins of the mask and the group itself.  Nothing is what it seems. Nothing is what you have been told it is. Everything is changing as the power shifts back. – JC
