The Four Horsemen of Decentralization

in bitshares •  3 months ago

The Global Control System (aka "The Beast") is a cage rapidly closing about the planet. In China, they are beginning to score every citizen based on what their national surveillance grid observes them doing. Jaywalk enough times and you can be denied the right to own a business or hold a passport. Our own phones report our locations and interactions with each other to diverse faceless agencies and enterprises. It wouldn't be hard for them to keep a "good citizen score" for every phone holder on the planet. They probably already do. Americans are under the jurisdiction of America no matter where they live on the planet. In fact, the word "jurisdiction" has come to mean "wherever a government can enforce its will".

Money is a key component of that Global Control System. Your actions are your transactions and they can be tracked. Soon no one will be able to buy or sell without permission from the Beast. Better keep your score in good standing! You won't even need to accept a physical ID mark, the Beast can identify your face, your fingerprints, your retina, and your patterns of spending, communication and daily movement. It already knows your every act. For that reason, you will ultimately be coerced into accepting an indelible and remotely scannable ID mark -- just because they can. "Who is like the Beast? Who can make war against it?"

There is a glimmer of hope. Four independent projects that I like, among many others, are working to keep the cage from slamming completely shut, at least for a little while. They take very different approaches and complement each other without depending on each other (or even coordinating with each other). There are, no doubt, many more such heroes, but these are a sample of what freedom fighters look like today.

The First Horseman, Dan Larimer of the BitShares EOS Dynasty, is taking the approach of providing new smart contract legal jurisdictions that people can freely choose what rules will govern their interactions with others. That, of course, depends on the ability to enjoy them in a jurisdiction where other jurisdictions will leave them alone.

The Second Horseman, Jared Rice of dWeb, is attacking the points of centralization on the Internet where other jurisdictions (and would-be jurisdictions) seek to extend their power to enforce their will on those who would otherwise be beyond their reach.

The Third Horseman, Sean Worthington of EOS Stealth (formerly CloudCoin) is using his RAIDA technology to create and validate digital assets that can be exchanged privately, like cash, without need of a public ledger.

The Fourth Horseman, Larry Castro of StealthGrid, is working on alternative private network infrastructure that can allow people to interact with each other directly, without passing through unnecessary intermediate jurisdictions where their freedoms can be observed, interdicted or attenuated.

It's too early to tell whether any of these projects will be successful, and each is only developing the tools of freedom - like musket makers in 1776. It will be up to others to take up those tools, and combine them in various ways to build applications where free people can interact outside the closing cage of the Beast's global control system.

Of course, if the cage ever does close, it won't be possible to develop such tools anymore. You're life can be turned off for publishing anything that the Beast doesn't like. Look at what just happened to Alex Jones who somehow came (briefly) under the "jurisdiction" of self-appointed commercial thought police.

I'm pretty sure the Beast won't like freedom-fighting geeks chipping away at its cage from the inside. Better get out now.

In Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has a mind calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is the number of mankind, and its number is six hundred sixty-six. https://www.concordant.org/version/read-concordant-new-testament-online/27_unveiling/ Since 6 is the number of man I take that as "Man's government", "Man's economy", and "Man's religion" and one of the main tools that "Man's government" uses is the public education system.

the public education system should also be in favor of people's welfare

Our public education system is based on the design of King Frederick of Prussia.

The centralized public education system is designed to turn our children into little mindless cogs that benefit the state.

The king is dead. Long live the king!

Hi Stan,

I know that we don't see eye to eye on a few points of theology, but I am very glad to see that you recognize as and identify the beast with human government.

I also appreciate that you've identified and pointed out possible defense mechanisms.

I'm glad that we have common cause.

😄😇😄

Do you think there can be an "economic" freedom revolution? Or do you think it needs to look like 1776? I don't think there's a physical place to defend or declare independent. At least without being totally crushed. England in 1776, for all it's power, is weak compared to most governments now. What are your thoughts? Best course of action?

Well, we can buy time. The Beast comes close to winning, but there are those who will endure to its end.

I wonder the same thing. In addition to the iniatives mentioned above and others, I take heart in projects like Liberland that are starting up all over the place.

No, there's always opposing forces that get revealed at the end

I agree with this post, the government is invading us at every step, look at such facebook or snapchat applications, we give our information on fb, what we like, how old we are, who we are dealing with, what humor we have from emoticons, snapchat we send where we are at a given moment, all this can be recreated! it's all in their databases, watch out for facebook because at any moment your conversations can be searched by the police, if you have a problem with the law, facebook will give your police talks without any problems! after all it is sick! zero privacy, the worst is that we agree, we live in a sick world, there are so many applications that control us! our children are addicted to them, they need them as much as they need to eat or drink something, if the phone discharges them, they immediately go to connect it. Someone once predicted that in 100 years people would walk everywhere with small computers in their pockets and they would click on them forever, once people would say that it is impossible for such a short period to change so much, today this computer collects information about our he lives, he writes down everything that gathers algortim set for espionage, a sick world!

More 'horsemen' needed urgently in my opinion

You're right facial detection in fingerprints remotely scene will eliminate the need for a chip perhaps. Interesting read thank you for sharing.

Well spotted !

A glimmer of hope is right. It seems we need to hang on to glimmers these days... at least for now.

My take on this is that the 'good' is based on truth and in the end truth will dissolve all lies. The truth WILL set you free. Its inevitable - the truth is indestructible, being the true relationship between all the components of reality. Lies and misconceptions can delude, deceive, mislead you in your ignorance. But in the end the Truth, by it's uniqueness and by being indestructible just has to conquer. Being faithful to the Truth is key though...or am I missing something?

·

I don't think you have missed anything.

The four horseman of the first four of seven seals are portrayals of various things that we are to be aware of. The most amazing thing is who is opening the seven seals. He is worthy, He is the Word. He is the Lamb. And with His blood he purchased men for God. And those men will reign.

The key to the Revelation is chapter 1 verse 3 where he writes "blessed is he who reads the words of this prophesy, and blessed are the the ones who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near"

As you say, Truth in the form of the Word of God is indestructible and He will defeat evil because He is present. He is a priest

The truth has always been about the Lion of Judah who is the lamb of God. Laid down together when Jerusalem was made new.

Truth is, that every prophecy was fulfilled in Him. He is the Spoken, as in Creation, Written, as in scripture is all about Him, every single written word is Him and Living, as in - died and was buried and rose on the first day. Foerever our high Priest in the order of Melchizedek. without beginning and without end. Alphea and Omega. First and Last. Who was and is and is to come.

Google, Facebook, and other controlled sites will die soon. It's just a matter of time. Decentralization is a real free speech!

Great article,

I imagine the war of the centralized economy vs a decentralized one will give the immediate advantage to the centralized system already in place.

However, there is power is numbers and I believe the people will stand and fight if they become aware of the danger of giving "the beast" total control.

What are your thoughts on what it is going to take for "the horsemen" to succeed?

Nice information

the apocalyse of decentralization

Yes, that's right, there is total control of almost all the inhabitants of the planet. Even Rockefeller said that it is necessary to implant each person a microchip so that it is easier to manage the herd if it does not agree with the system rules, disconnection and reservation. Now it's almost like this through all methods described by the author. Riders are certainly good, but who will give them upside downf17799732e0d5ec247219bfdea07a46b.jpg

Decentralization rulz ! break the cage ! break the beast ! break the system !

I had to comment here.

Good article but becomes a joke when you reference Alex Jones. It's pretty simple, if you don't abide by the rules set by whatever privately owned platform you choose to operate on, you get booted off. It's pretty simple. The guy is an absolute idiot and infowars bursts at the seems with utterly false 'news'.

You may as well just put up a picture of the so called 'journalist' Tommy Robinson.

Frankly, if you think it's ok to allow someone to carry on spouting nonsense who claims Sandy Hook was a hoax filled with child actors amongst other horrific statements and comments then you're an idiot.

·

I'm not evaluating the content, I'm evaluating his right to speak it and the conspiracy to destroy a competitor's business. It's actually better if the example is controversial. One's right to speak is not a function of the content of that speech.

That said, each individual company has the right to choose who it serves, just like I have the right not to bake you a wedding cake. Oh, wait...

·
·

He's free to speak it. But the platforms are private and they lay out quite clearly the rules of speaking on their platform. Rules were broken and he was kicked out. I don't see the problem? As you say, each individual company has the right.

Do you not think if Alex Jones had not repeatedly broken the rules of these platforms he would still be on there now?

All he has to do is find a platform that'll allow his vile views, or create his own. Quite how so many people in America take this guy seriously is beyond me.

He's kicking off because he's lost over half his traffic that's all.

Too bad.

As an artist, I am happy decentralization gives art a chance, and us for making a real living!

We may be able to buy time but Biblical Prophecy has to come to pass. It always has it always will.

·

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

·
·

So, in theory, some must outlive the Beast.

·
·
·

From the text, that seems like a good interpretation. I think that as well. Just because things are going badly, doesn't mean they will overcome all good.

·
·
·
·

For you are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and security,” destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers, are not in the darkness so that this day should overtake you like a thief.…

·
·
·
·

And the text of Revelation was just as true in the first century as it is today. soon come to pass makes it clear that there is an urgency to read the message.

My opinion on this topic. People need their freedom. You have to be able to say what you want. Always treat people how you want to be treated yourself. you make peace yourself. Work together then you continue. Do not bother your neighbors.samen werking.jpeg

These guys are definately all leaders in the field. I feel like there may be about 30 "Horsemen" though.

30 that will later become 4

Good research man :)

each application must go through test after test with which success or lack of literature can be seen so that it is possible to develop from time to time

This is some scary stuff mate.

Solo queda esperar la palabra profética del eterno creador YHVH por que lo que esta escrito se ha de cumplir y su venida sera ¡inminente!

I love your ideology and technology. Such awesome timing! #WWG1WGA

does seem this is linked to blockchain

I think we are going to enslave ourselves to "the block chain"

Young folks who grew up with technology at their fingertips their whole lives probably cannot envision a world where it is not a factor.

When the Stuff Hits The Fan, decentralization is going to mean going back to life like it was without smartphones and wifi and all that. A life young people are going to be entirely unprepared for.

Decentralization of apocalyptic levels is going to be very, very ugly, and a lot of people are going to disappear off this earth very, very quickly.

I think it would possible to develop

i like how you combine theology and economy together.

i think thats not true.it's seems like panic

This scary and what can we do?
