Danger: Bitcoin's Lightning Network is the first step towards Corporate and Government control over Bitcoin
Users of Bitcoin are having to pay high transaction fees and wait for hours, even days, for their transactions to be confirmed. Bitcoin Core proposes a solution that takes away our digital signatures into another system provided as a service by Blockstream. This is a form of centralization. This Segwit/Lightning Network solution accumulates important pieces of information into one area where it could be controlled, manipulated or stolen. It also makes it easier for governments to the delight of banks and central banks, to justify unnecessary controls over our freewill to transact with whom, for what and in a manner we want.
