A new movement of non-aligned countries is being born. All gathered under the orange banner of Bitcoin (BTC). In the face of money printing, can the Bitcoin network represent an alternative as significant as the Soviet Union was to the United States during the Cold War?

The Non-Aligned Movement

For those of you who are from the former Yugoslavia, the global cause known as the Non-Aligned Movement is familiar. Under Tito’s leadership, the movement brought together diverse and large-scale nations such as Yugoslavia, Egypt, India, and Indonesia.

In people’s minds, it was less a formal entity aimed at imposing thoughts and decisions on others than a decentralized group. It was far from resembling today’s World Economic Forum (WEF), the United Nations, or the European Union, which are enemies of many bitcoiners.

For nearly 50 years of “Cold War,” superpowers in conflict around the world sought to force everyone into one of the two blocs, the Soviet Union on one side and the United States on the other.

While the Cold War tried to impose a difficult choice on countries and individuals, affecting their lives, livelihoods, and wealth, the Non-Aligned Movement aimed to avoid binding to either side.

Just like the Non-Aligned Movement, a third monetary way is being born.

A World Full of Fiat

Post-Cold War Western leaders sought a new enemy.

The West needed a new adversary to create a bi-faction bloc again like in the “good old” Cold War days.

However, none could fully satisfy the bloodthirsty Fiat printing press until the world witnessed the rise of China.

The world was once again black and white and ripe to restart the mad fiat money printer.

The modern Cold War turned into an economic, financial, technological, and monetary war. The global economic dominance of the United States was challenged, along with the role of the US dollar.

How could a country that simply produced cheap clothing and Christmas decorations become a GDP rival?

With this in mind, the Western master began imposing the most comprehensive and extensive controls on anyone touching or even dreaming of the dollar.

“Where did you find your 789 dollars and 82 cents?”

“Why do you need to withdraw 124 dollars in cash?”

“Bring your birth certificate, 4 fingerprints, 10 years of tax returns, and a blood sample tomorrow, and maybe we’ll give you your money back so you can pay your daughter’s medical bills.”

The new polarized world was created to force people to make a choice, to use the US dollar and the Western financial system, under the threat of having their wealth held hostage, frozen, or even confiscated.

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies,” Thomas Jefferson.

Bitcoin, the Solution to a Fragmented World

Today’s world is not some sort of Yin-Yang where the two blocs must exist to create balance, but rather a world where the two blocs are in constant friction, burning at their contact points and grinding each of us in between.

Yet, what the elders of the Cold War and today’s money printers did not foresee, is the creation of Bitcoin, which sprung up between the friction blocks that served as flint.

Bitcoin is the New Non-Aligned Movement

Bitcoin is the new version of the Non-Aligned Movement.

By giving the public control over its own monetary system, a “third way” has been born.

Neither Yin, nor Yang, neither East, nor West, neither Democrat, nor Republican, neither left, nor right. The new movement is led by personalities such as the cool President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, and the enigmatic Satoshi Nakamoto.

There is always room for others within the Monetary Non-Aligned Movement, if the Argentine president Javier Milei, who wields the chainsaw, were willing to embrace decentralized currency, he would be welcomed with open arms.

A Monetary Non-Aligned Movement

In an interview with the President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele stated that he wants to offer Salvadorans an “alternative system”.

“Trying to set up an alternative system that is more independent, that is not confiscable, that is not censored, and that is completely decentralized… We are taking small steps to change some things and to give people different options. We are not changing everything all at once, but we are giving people other options, and we have made bitcoin legal tender,” President Nayib Bukele of El Salvador.

Just as we moved from the arms race to the race of printing magic money, we must now venture to end the categorization of the world into blocs that only favor certain economic groups.

Bitcoiners talk about choosing an alternative path with self-sovereignty.

The new elements of power are not acquired by forced association, but by will and self-determination, constituting a true “Monetary Non-Aligned Movement”. Bitcoin is the new “Third World.”
