Documentation Matters with Decentralized Governance


I’ve heard some pretty strong opinions about EOS in the circles I’m exposed to.

I admit, I don’t know more about it (I probably should.) Just reading through this, I see some pretty concerning things.

  1. “bugs in the law…..cause property violations.” 

    No. Human beings deciding to take what isn’t theirs or to intentionally harm others through physical, financial or other means is what causes the violations to others. Basic violations of a person, their stuff or things in their legal control happen when people choose to violate natural law. Codified statutes only act as a deterrent to behaviors, but is not the cause of it.

  2. You mentioned that the EOS community will decide later on several things….

    Some of these things sound absolutely undefined.

  3. In order to have consensus on anything, you have to have clear and agreed upon definitions.

  4. Who defines what is “unjust”?

In order to decide what is just or unjust in any community, there must first be a standard lifted up for comparison.

If anyone can take the code and make their own communities, with their own rules, how is that any different than the hundreds of different countries that are existence today?

Decentralized governance happens when a list of rules is first specifically agreed upon. But nothing happens without first things being clearly defined and legally done to a point where this decentralized governance board can answer to and or for anything one of the already existing governments throw at it.

Because this post contains things that are not yet defined (especially some pretty important things) and or there is a (what I’m left with the impression of) that there is a prevailing mentality that law is either all corrupt and or the lack of standard thereof solves everything, I’m hesitant to trust the technology as put forth by EOS.

Oh, and if you’re freezing community members accounts, tokens for “violations” — again, isn’t there then a “law” present has been present for it then to have been “violated?”

I admit, as I began, I don’t know as much about EOS as I probably should and there could be errors in my understanding. However, this particular post makes it clear that EOS is not as solid at backing up its claims as other technologies I’ve been exposed to.

Like what you read?
