I was thinking about the idea of a state, a police force, an insurance company, even a forum moderator.
aren't they here because people can't settle their disputes by themselves?
we assign a neutral third party to settle disputes because we can't do it ourselves.
lets take an insurance company - you scratch someones car but instead of directly giving her some cash to fix it, you call a third party to settle the dispute.
its the same concept in politics, law,banking, police, army's and so on....
we give them unimaginable power and authority over us mainly because we can't come to a resolution without them.
i was thinking about a software that can "judge" who is right, who's to compensate and how much...
if people trust the software and agree to its rules isn't it an alternative to the humongous and corrupt institutions we created?
