I’m a firm believer in the sovereignty of the individual in society.
Society is constantly falling into collectivist quagmires, where the self-government of the individual is subjected to dense matrices of law and obligation, usually in response to some media-generated crisis or in overreaction to a real crisis that isn’t really resolved by the overreactions.
I am a great fan of blockchain technology precisely because each participant wears the ‘big boy pants’, makes their own decisions, participates exactly how and where they wish, and yet are so collaborative and collegial. In my opinion, the great community here is precisely because we are all self-sovereign individuals who feel able to contribute to the ecosystem as a whole, not because we are obligated to by governments or paymasters.
Blockchain solutions also could provide a way out of the collectivist quagmires: IE if USA wants to devalue their currency, raise taxes and hike interest rates, we can find or build solutions for those problems in crypto.
In general I’d like to see the power of governments and corporations diminished in our lives, and without some broad system of collaboration we can all embrace, there’s no way to do that really.
What do you guys think?
