Anarchy does have its drawback.

Don't forget scammers thrive in this kind of environment.

Even without government, there is the majority of people... Scammers would be dealt with.

How so? Look at how badly bitcoin has dealt with scammers. A lot of people who were once Anarchists or sympathetic to the cause are no longer after seeing the reality of bitcoin.

There have been far more scams pulled off with fiat currency than bit coin I assure you. People don't change a fundamental outlook because there are a few thieves in the world.

Sure there's thieves everywhere, but there's no disincentive other than your own personal morality not to scam/steal in bitcoin and other systems where there is no regulation/authority.

I've personally known people who have changed or softened their views on anarchism or libertarianism as a result of witnessing the extent of fraud that comes a long with a system like bitcoin. Some of it was just naivety to human nature, and some of it is realizing that complete freedom is not necessarily something that is inherently a good thing.

With all that's happened in bitcoin in the last four years it's pretty hard to argue that humans are inherently moral and cooperative. A lot of people believe that living in some libertarian paradise will bring out the good in everyone, but that's just wishful thinking.

People make mistakes. And then people learn.
Look at all the threads here in the Marketplace. People don't get scammed as easy as they used to.

The future course of society may be interesting thanks to these technologies but the weak point in all this will be (as always) human nature and therefore I am not too optimistic.

Great article. I really appreciate the time taken by the author to examine many of the potential implications of the development of distributed consensus technologies. We've heard a lot of these ideas mentioned in various places over the past few years, but here they are gathered into a thorough, well-written article that I can refer people to when they ask me why I'm so enthusiastic about bitcoin.

The foundation that Bitcoin was based on is the idea that the inventors would have mined billions of dollars worth of them before the market took off. And that in itself shows that Labour have already done all the possible damage to democracy. What need is there for technology to disrupt things when they can breed six billion hunger factories and give them little hammer and sickle badges?

Basic individual right has to be enforced by gun.


Which lead me to believe coercion with the consensus of the population is the only way to have peace.

despite that, there is still a large market for scammers, as every day there are more and more bitcoin adopters.
