Interesting perspective. You are describing a final boss battle, one that Bitcoiners have been expecting since the beginning. It appears your view of government is that it has the competence, resources, and desire to risk destroying trillions of dollars of value internationally and hundreds of billions domestically for the sake of seizing control of something they want. I'm sure there are many Warren types that would. But there are also many who would go the other way - protect freedoms because that is good for them politically and economically and it's far and away what people want.

I don't disagree with your paradigm that some politicians and central bankers won't rest until they control everything, even things that other people invent and participate in voluntarily. I know they exist. I just don't think they'll win.
