On September 7, 2021, El Salvador grew to become the primary nation within the historical past of the world to undertake bitcoin, the world’s new foreign money.

Keep in mind these phrases, as they are going to be engraved within the historical past of cash.

However as of right now, in these early occasions, opinions are caught within the buckets of it being a daring transfer, a sensible transfer, a dumb transfer, or just of venture.

In fact, it was not one of the above. It was the one apparent transfer, the one logical one. For individuals who perceive, the true query shouldn’t be if different international locations are going to undertake bitcoin, however when.

We’re so early on this paradigm shift, {that a} logical, widespread sense transfer is controversial; it has many individuals cheering it on, and plenty of, many detractors.

On this event, I cannot analyze the supporters, however the detractors. They are often separated into three teams:

  1. Those who genuinely assume it was the incorrect determination.
  2. Those who assume it’s a superb determination, however for the incorrect causes.
  3. Those who’re afraid of our determination.

Now, the attention-grabbing half is that the primary and second teams exist principally due to the third.


As a result of probably the most vocal detractors, those who’re afraid and pressuring us to reverse our determination, are the world’s highly effective elites and the individuals who work for or profit from them.

They used to personal all the pieces, and in a means they nonetheless do; the media, the banks, the NGOs, the worldwide organizations, and nearly all of the governments and companies on the earth.

And with that, after all, in addition they personal the armies, the loans, the cash provide, the credit score scores, the narrative, the propaganda, the factories, the meals provide; they management worldwide commerce and worldwide regulation. However their strongest weapon is the management of the “reality”.

And they’re prepared to battle, lie, smear, destroy, censor, confiscate, print, and do no matter it takes to take care of and improve their management over the “reality”, and all the pieces, and everybody.

Simply take into consideration the a whole bunch, if not 1000’s, of articles about how El Salvador’s economic system was supposedly destroyed due to its “bitcoin gamble”, about how we’re inevitably heading to default, that our economic system has collapsed, and that our authorities is bankrupt.

Most of you will have certainly seen this, proper? They’re throughout. Each monetary publication, each main information group, each newspaper on the earth, all of the credit standing businesses, and all of the worldwide monetary organizations are saying the identical factor, as in the event that they had been in a choir.

However is any of this true?

Nicely, you simply have to learn their articles and take heed to their “specialists” saying that each one of this occurred after El Salvador misplaced round $50 million due to bitcoin’s plummeting worth on exchanges. Since we’re not promoting any bitcoin, this assertion is clearly false. However for the sake of constructing a extra profound evaluation, let’s say it was solely true, which after all it’s not, however bear with me.

Actually? A complete nation’s economic system was destroyed by a $50 million loss?

Sure, El Salvador is a comparatively poor nation, however in 2021 alone, we produced $28 billion in services. Pushing the concept that a $50 million loss — lower than 0.2% of our GDP — would destroy and even put our nation’s economic system in bother is way over silly; it’s revealing.

You’ll assume the financial geniuses at Bloomberg, Forbes, Fortune, Monetary Occasions, Deutsche Welle, BBC, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The New York Occasions, The Washington Submit, and so on., would have sufficient analysts and editors effectively versed in these matters to inform them to not publish that nonsense. You’ll assume these absurd articles wouldn’t go these editorial boards, however they do. And generally they even get a really giant area, like a full-page unfold in The New York Occasions.

So the argument that we have now misplaced $50 million value of bitcoin is fake, as a result of we merely haven’t offered any bitcoin. And even when we had been to just accept that argument as true, then it could be ridiculous to conclude that an economic system of $28 billion per 12 months will go bankrupt or into default due to a 0.2% “loss” in a single 12 months, when in 2021 our economic system grew 10.3%, or by $4 billion. That is utilizing the IMF’s personal numbers!

And even if you wish to settle for that absurd argument as true, which might imply you ignore math or fundamental logic, nonetheless, you’ll have but to ask your self why these worldwide media companies would give a lot time and area to such a small nation like El Salvador.

Had been they speaking about El Salvador earlier than? Did they care about what occurred in our nation? Did they report the $37 billion (with a b) that the earlier governments stole from our nation’s treasury?

Ask your self these questions; a couple of years in the past, do you know the place El Salvador was positioned on a map? Do you know the title of the earlier president of El Salvador? Do you know about their failed financial insurance policies?

The reply to these questions added to the unbelievable absurdity of portraying, in a whole bunch of significant monetary publications, that an economic system that produces $28 billion a 12 months will go bankrupt for a debatable $50 million loss. That’s all of the proof one ought to have to see that they’re attempting to idiot you.

In reality, these are the true numbers, that are public info and may be discovered and double-checked fairly simply:

In 2021, our GDP rose 10.3%, earnings from tourism rose 52%, employment went up 7%, new companies up 12%, exports up 17%, power technology up 19%, power exports went up 3,291%, and inner income went up 37%, all with out elevating any taxes. And this 12 months, the crime and homicide charge have gone down 95%.

These are actual numbers, information that can’t be distorted by narrative. The one quantity that may be modified with their rhetoric is our bond costs, since they rely totally on the official narrative and the credit score scores of their businesses; extra “reality” than the reality.

They’ve mentioned again and again, in additional than 100 self-accredited publications, that we’re not capable of pay our money owed and are heading for default. We had been even ranked because the nation with the best danger of default on the earth. El Salvador with extra danger than Ukraine. Yeah, precisely.

So to counter that narrative, we did precisely the other of not paying our money owed; we supplied to pay prematurely. And that’s the reason this month we will probably be shopping for all of our 2023 and 2025 bonds, that the holders wish to promote after all, at market worth.

They’ve additionally instructed you that there are big anti-Bitcoin protests in El Salvador; they’ve been something however big. Moreover, why would my authorities have a 85-90% approval ranking in accordance with each ballot carried out within the final 12 months, together with a number of polls carried out by the opposition and several other by impartial worldwide polling companies, if we had been dealing with issues so badly?

By the way in which, what’s your president’s approval ranking?

So if you’re in group one or two of the detractors, my message to you is that this; cease ingesting the elites’ Kool-Help and try the information. Even higher, come ask the individuals, see the transformations for your self, stroll within the streets, go to the seashore or to our volcanoes, breath the recent air, really feel what it actually means to be free, see how one of many poorest nations within the continent and the earlier homicide capital of the world is altering to quickly grow to be the perfect place it may be.

After which, ask your self; why are the world’s strongest forces in opposition to these actual transformations. And why ought to they even care?

You see it now, proper? The explanation for all of it’s because we’re not merely combating a neighborhood opposition, or the standard roadblocks any small nation might face, however the system itself, for the way forward for mankind.

El Salvador is the epicenter of Bitcoin adoption, and thus, financial freedom, monetary sovereignty, censorship resistance, unconfiscatable wealth, and the top of the kingmakers, their printing, devaluating, and reassigning the wealth of the majorities to pursuits teams, the elites, the oligarchs, and those within the shadows behind them, pulling their strings.

If El Salvador succeeds, many international locations will observe. If El Salvador one way or the other fails, which we refuse to, no international locations will observe.

They know this very effectively and that’s why they’re combating us so onerous.

Will you play their sport?

Or will you grow to be conscious of the true sport?
