Democracy is more vindictive than Cabinets. The wars of peoples will be more terrible than those of kings. – Winston Churchill
Yugoslavia, in the nineties, experienced one of the worst episode of hyperinflation ever. You would expect them (the serbs) to understand that printing money is not the way forward…But people here see Bitcoin as something that’s controlled by foreigners. It’s just another foreign power trying to manipulate our people. They don’t understand that Bitcoin’s not controlled by anyone…It’s controlled by everyone. And they’re very skeptical… thanks to big forces NATO interfering with our sovereignty, breaking up the country. You would expect the Serbs to be kind of switched on to that, but no. The thing is, they are switched onto the fact of not being brainwashed anymore. They’re not as brainwashed as, as the west is right now. – Prince Filip Karađorđević
