Yes, I agree.

I look at Bitcoin with interest, by it is still unclear to me whether we
still need a currency, and/or whether a system such as that suggested in Money
as Debt III: Evolution Beyond
Money<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P7izAUe3ZM>would not be more
practical, and/or whether such currency should be scarce,
the problem with fiat money being possibly that of its control by private
monopolists lending it against interest more than of its very existence.
