“The illusion of freedom will continue as long 
as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
 
At the point where the illusion becomes too 
expensive to maintain, they will just take 
down the scenery, they will pull back the 
curtains, they will move the tables and chairs 
out of the way and you will see 
the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Silk Road Mastermind Ross Ulbricht

Sentenced to Life in Prison

by Julianne Pepitone


Ross Ulbricht, the convicted operator of the underground online black market Silk Road, was sentenced Friday to life in prison, according to WNBC.
That was the maximum sentence Ulbricht faced for seven federal convictions including narcotics trafficking, computer hacking, running a criminal enterprise and money laundering.
Ulbricht, 31, had been convicted in February 2015 on all counts he faced for his role in operating Silk Road -- and facilitating what investigators say totaled more than $200 million in anonymous online drug sales using the digital currency bitcoin. The New York City jury of six men and six women took only a few hours to deliberate and convict Ulbricht on all charges.
