This is probably one of the few good use cases for blockchain technology where independent actors (of potentially different political affiliations and in different countries) can help given they’re given a purely monetary incentive independent of any political outcomes.
I suggest everyone takes this with a grain of salt unless confirmed with other sources (ideally I’d like a reputable entity like the Internet Archive to release a similar service as so far they’ve been trustworthy and haven’t shown any political bias).
Full disclosure: I am a Trump opponent but I’m not into US politics based on what I hear in mainstream international media which I know might be biased.
Just curious, not trying to bait you into saying anything stupid. I just ask as someone who is "very political" and trying to understand what people mean when they say they're "not into politics".
I’m not into politics and I don’t take the time to do proper research into who said what and I only take info from the mainstream news so I understand they’re biased and I disclosed that to cover myself in case what I heard ends up wrong. I’m against him but I’m also open to the basis of my opinion being incorrect.
Not that this has anything to do with what you said specifically -- it is just sad how polarized our nation is and the folks at the extreme ends have created a dumpster fire that the media magnifies for profit.
So I’m against him based on what I heard (his thoughts on climate change and the FCC situation with Ajit Pai being appointed) but no other information besides that.
Just interested in people who frame statements the way you did. As another poster said, sometimes it's meant as "If I say I don't care about this, when people disagree with me I can troll them by pointing out how little I care" but I understand your point of view.
Thanks for clearing things up!
I hold similar opinions about Brexit - I think it’s a bad idea based on the reaction of everyone else but if it was just up to me I wouldn’t care much (although I think it was managed badly).
If it ends up bad for my business (software engineering consultancy currently based in the UK) I’ve already got a backup plan of moving elsewhere. Other than that I don’t have much power to prevent politicians shooting themselves in the foot so I just sit and wait with a good backup plan.
