  • How Michael became disaffected while working on Wall Street during the Great Financial Crisis
  • How Zero Hedge amplified Liberty Blitzkrieg and sent Michael on a decade-long writing path
  • How Michael discovered bitcoin and the bitcoin community in 2012
  • Why social media platforms need to be regulated with the principles of the First Amendment 
  • How all political parties use division to stay in power 
  • How outrage culture has become endemic, commodified and co-opted by existing power 
  • Why the only option to fight outrage culture is to opt out
