John McAfee Fugitive Follies – What’s Next For The Most Interesting Man in The World?
On the run from the IRS and running for President of the United States. Welcome to the John McAfee Fugitive Follies.
The cryptocoin world had quite a spokesman in John McAfee. Imminently intelligent and obviously eccentric, he was the perfect poster boy for crypto currency, his last escapades in Belize and through Guatemala before returning to the United States notwithstanding.
Apart from being being fascinating and entertaining on the level of the OJ Simpson slow speed chase in that white Ford Bronco so long ago is the potential for a teachable moment. If John McAfee is as wealthy as he claims to be through cryptocurrency AND if his assertions of privacy and fluid of movement are to be proven, this latest adventure of John McAfee known as the John McAfee Fugitive Follies could be the test case everybody has been looking for. If John McAfee continues to live the posh life while on the run, in exile, or whatever then the case he’s been making for cryptocoins all along will have been made.
There’s one obvious downside to the John McAfee fugitive follies; he’s giving the cryptocoin world a sorely unneeded black eye through his latest misadventures. Tax evasion is not something you want to be known for in any circle. Connect tax evasion to the current cryptocoin climate where government sentiment is concerned and it’s clear John McAfee is doing more harm than good at the moment.
A cautionary tale for John McAfee and anyone following the John McAfee Fugitive Follies: Al Capone was the most prominent target of the US government in history. He deflected every attempt to put him behind bars even when the FBI put their full weight on him. Mind you, the FBI back then was way more powerful than today’s FBI relative to civil liberties, procedures and all the rest. So how did the untouchable Al Capone end up in Alcatraz? The IRS.
