Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew interviews Amir Taaki, early Bitcoin developer, hacker, revolutionary, and political activist. We discuss an interesting array of topics on geopolitics, from communism to capitalism, the role of religion, the role of leaders, the role of weapons, and the role of money. Amir shares some stories from his early days in Bitcoin, both things he appreciated, and those he thinks Bitcoin should improve upon. We spend a good amount of time on political and economic activism as well, such as agorism, how fighting ISIS in Syria shaped Amir's worldview, and what he hopes to help those in Catalonia achieve. The latter part of the interview focuses on Amir's goals and challenges for his Polytech Acadamey.
