    consent vitiates abuse. All those people signed agreements acknowledging what they were doing and letting their exploiters off the hook.

That money makes it possible to cheat people before they know what's up means that the issuer of that money has an obligation to regulated how and by whom it is used. However, to accomplish that, we first have to disabuse people of the notion that money belongs to whoever's got it in hand.

But, both the regulators and the users and the speculators prefer to believe otherwise. Currency leaves no fingerprints, but it is easy to trace. That's what makes it dangerous.
