Yay! This is a great idea until someone someday comes up with a decentralized form of law.
Wow there's an idea! could that be done using a blockchain thing - like storing the rules of law in a decentralized way that people all agree is correct?
Yep! I believe it will be done eventually.
Bitcoin is a perfect tool for direct democracy where people vote for laws with hash-power.
But that should happen when majority of the population starts participating.
On a technical side, I guess the blockchain would include a hash of "the law", while the actual text will be stored somewhere else. Everybody could verify that the text hashes to the value in blockchain.
We would also need some rules on what to do if multiple different hashes get voted in (in different blocks of course).
Maybe select the winner based on the last 1000 blocks or something similar. Interesting times ahead
