According to the Bank of England, Bitcoin isn’t a currency – but that didn’t stop Zakk Lakin choosing to be paid in it and nothing else. This is what life is like being paid exclusively in digital money

This was an incredible video by British broadcaster, journalist, writer and television personality, Piers Morgan . Piers recently sat down for an interview with Ben Shapiro. During their discussion the topic of the modern day left came up.
Piers Morgan: Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, Okay? And I speak as a liberal… Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem.

You know, this snowflake culture we operate in, this victimhood culture that everyone, has to think in a certain way, behave a certain way. Everyone has to have a bleeding heart… You say a joke 10 years ago that offended somebody you can never host the Oscars… So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They’re fed up with the snowflake culture. They’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything… They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their life but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to, It’s a kind of version of fascism.
Don’t try this at home, kids!
