I agree with you but I'm worried that we're getting to a point where people that use bitcoin don't understand it as fully as they should so they don't know what they should be doing


heh, we've long past that point.. all we need now is a good ol' purge.

thats the thing bitcoin has always been very centralized in its development. at first there was 1 guy with 1 vision. then gavin came, tried to listen to everyone but when it came down to it he would do what he thought was best, even if there was disagreement. now gavin is gone, there a hole bunch of dev's each with there own idea of what bitcoin should become, each with a BIP tailored  to their vision, each conviced there idea is the best way to go. and so they argue, and argue, meanwhile nothing is getting solved... there needs to be a better way, we need a "boss" that calls the shots!? no we need to decentralize decision making!
a decentralized governance model.
thats what we're working on,
stay tuned.

Rubbish.

How come bitcoin's development would be centralized since it is open source?

It's all there:

https://bitcoin.org/en/bitcoin-core/

https://bitcoin.org/en/development

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin

But then again, it is not because you dont contribute to the code, nor understand it that it is centralized.

Also, not going forward with bogus code, and not running crippled implementations does not make it centralized either.

This is in fact decentralization at its best.
