But in terms of liberty and technology, it was a great year! 2013 was also the year that a vast new majority of Americans turned their back on the overseas military agenda. We can all agree that we couldn’t care less about building short-lived roads and bridges in Afghanistan when we’ve got roads and bridges to build here for children, our grandchildren and ourselves.
Privately funded and openly discussed technologies – for alternative non-state controlled currency, for communications, for delivery of goods and services, for building anything and everything – debuted in a disordered rambunctious cacophony. Bitcoin, space rockets, drones, encryption and 3D printing – we had been taught that these categories belong only to state, and never to the people.
