Brian McConnell : Peer-to-Peer Taxation

I find it hard to imagine this as anything but crank put out by O'Reilly to stir the pot around the idea of peer-to-peer, in anticipation of their upcoming conference on the same subject. I say this because the only discussion about the network here is the buzzword-bingo that tries to obfuscate a seriously ugly political agenda. Essentially, this guy is advocating downloading all the government's responsibilities (read:money) on to the private sector and replacing political debate with ballot initiatives. In this context, the only role the network plays is as a tool to distract the masses from what's really going on.
