“The libertarian instinct behind the cryptocoin fervor is similar to that driving the affection for assault weapons. The government can’t be trusted. It’s out to get us and make us all slaves of the elite. We should all live in fortified compounds, free of societal restraint. Especially any restraint over our money. Never mind that government monetary management has produced results far superior to the centuries of boom and bust that preceded 1913. It’s the principle that counts.”
Note the word "Libertarian". This group is often ultra conservative (except many in the group are atheists).
