A Tale of Two Systems


The two structures we’ve depicted here produce vastly different results. On the left is a system in which the nodes (that’s us) are the most important things. On the right you see a system in which the structure itself is the most important thing… where the structure is primary and humans must conform to it.



Centralized systems tend to tyranny, not because of the people operating them, but because of the structure itself. Decentralized systems tend toward freedom for the same reason.
