From section 5:
“ 3) Each node works on finding a difficult proof-of-work for its block”
Satoshi on all the paper with “nodes” he means “miners”.
There aren’t nodes that don’t mine on the bitcoin.pdf, or the only possible reference is at section 8 with
“Businesses that receive frequent payments will probably still want to run their own nodes for more independent security and quicker verification.”
But even this isn’t certain.
It’s ok that you say that you don’t like how bitcoin now works, and how it is written on the paper, but using your misunderstanding of the bitcoin.pdf as base of your logic doesn’t leave space for any debate.
