It would be nice to think the scenario through (“evil” group of people want to enslave people) so we can better understand the potential risk of the technology and understand the game theory behind community driven platforms . If I am a “evil” authority with lots of power how could i use this new technology to achieve my “narcissistic / egoistic” goals?
For example a group of people want to enslave the world why would they use community tools for that like slack/discord/metagame etc. ?
People in power want to stay in power and they can only stay in power if the input energy/money is less then the output energy/money. for example today the banksters have implemented a system where they are able to open the money valve whenever they want with very little effort. this system force people to use this money so the money supply can be diluted. they can take money out and put air in.
With the help of blockchain everyone can create their own money. this democratization of money leads to a system where different monetary theories/systems can compete on the free market. Before blockchain there were only a few global money systems. So now the people in power have to think about a different system how they can stay in power, because people can more easily switch from one money system to another with a click of a button. Also the taxation will become more and more difficult. It is a fact that if people have a choice the will always choose the system that most benefit them. A community centered system always benefit more people than an authority centric system. So how are they going to force people into slavery again. How does the new slavery look like? Will it be a new authority centric ID system where all data is liked to this ID and if you want to participate in public live you always need to carry your ID around and authenticate yourself. So money get less important and permission get more important. You will get permission if you score is high enough. China is leading the way and is becoming the next super power. I think the goal is to have democratic / liquid democratic decision making but the devil lies in the details.
What Metagame is doing is like what china is doing with its social credit score but with a option to port your social credits to a new system. I think this is very important that the social credit system is open source and transparent how it get distributed how it gets calculated etc. Corona has shown how important permissions are and who decides about the permissions. Corona has shown that something unimaginable like a lockdown which only happens in china can happen everywhere and people just follow. Who has decided it? Who is giving the permissions? Are the people in control? It’s difficult. Media, information, research, trust, democracy, decision making. Most people don’t have time or don’t want to take time to ask and research.
I think the basis of a robust, democratic system is the educated individual. So the goal is to educate people to become independent self thinkers and for this the basis is a transparent democratic information portal and thats why I think that it would be really great to have a web3 personal website maker and a decentralised search engine so people can post their thoughts/experiences and find each others thoughts thoughts/experiences and then on top of this a gamified reward system like metagame
