Socialist Survivalism: A Democracy Beyond Democracy
This includes both early investors who have already collectively amassed a hundred billion pounds of profit and later adopters now increasingly familiar with a new way of doing things. Early adopters naturally associate their wealth and success with the disruption of fiat currency. They believe — from experience, not just theory — that private, decentralised solutions can replace ancient public institutions, and that profit comes from cutting out complacent gatekeepers.
The gap between the evolution of governance online measured in years and offline measured in centuries is already large. Superior governance tends to attract both citizens and capital, as the British Empire in the s and the United States in the s both demonstrated. As we continue to experiment with governance methodologies and technologies in the virtual world, we should be optimistic that the highest forms of governance have not already been discovered, rather that improvements upon them can become a continual process.
At the very least, we should accept that governance is a technology, crypto is profitably disrupting it and the resulting innovations are unlikely to stay caged in the virtual world. The Spectator. Brendan O'Neill.
