Soft forks were foreign to Satoshi Nakamoto. He introduced the block size limit, but he also explained that it should be removed and upgraded by HARD FORK before the blocks got too full.

But guess what!
Hard money doesn't change.
Would gold be valuable if you could vote to change it?
Of course not!

The thing they don't want you to know is that is also made BTC into a technocratic, oligarchical fiat currency.
