I usually say something like: ‘How well do you understand the current system by which money exists’, and when they realise ‘Not much’, I point out that it is extraordinarily important to society – almost a bedrock upon which the rest is built – and is controlled by politicians & bankers, effectively without the informed supervision of society. By this point they usually realise at least the potential for fuckery to have occurred in the current system.
Next, depending on the person I’m talking to, I will go on to discuss the permanent state of war, or a global economy optimised for resource depletion, or the impossibility of true social mobility when the richest people control the rules of the game, or any of a dozen other angles.
To understand the solution, it is first necessary to understand the problem. I don’t mention specifics about Bitcoin until they feel the burning need for its invention.
