This piece was inspired by something I told @Chiefmonkey on the Scarce.City Banter Telegram Group a little while back… that I feel like a giant oppressive beast is sitting on my chest, not letting me breathe...

It also is a criticism on this summer’s ESG FUD.

The Fiat lords pretend to care about Mother Nature while enslaving her, violating her and destroying her.

Bitcoin Fixes this!

Death by Fiat is part of a project called The Orange Pill Effect series.

Each illustration is made for it to have complete meaning on its own, but to also work along the other pieces in order to complete the strip.

Each piece has its own story, but to HODL with diamond hands during Bitcoin’s volatility, you have to zoom out, and zooming out is what’s achieved when the full series is on display.

To achieve the Orange Pill Effect, one graduates from blue pill addict, to the red pill rehab, then to the relentless optimism of the Orange Pill.

The candles on the chart are affected by the color of the pills, or are the pills affected by the candles on the chart?
