In this talk, Andreas looks at the importance of charity and building infrastructure to facilitate remittances, while it is being stifled not only by the parasitical and immoral financial class but the overbearing and inefficient system of monetary regulations which have only made these problems worse. He also argues that being able to honestly express ourselves and participate in a community through our currency choices matters more to adoption than the sovereign authorities who think they still have a monopoly on value. Currency is an emergent artifact of a social species.
