Juicing the Rebel Alliance
My talk to the Prospera gathering in Roatan, Honduras on the mission and moral justification of decentralized governance.
I write this over the Caribbean Sea, flying back to the Empire. I am returning after five days in what is arguably the world’s freest jurisdiction: Prospera.
Prospera is also a company that operates a ZEDE—a special economic zone—on the Honduran island of Roatan. Several exciting folks, from legal innovators and entrepreneurs to DAO specialists and distributed ledger mavens, had gathered to compare notes and celebrate how improbable it is that this place exists at all.
I was invited to speak about the importance of decentralized governance and, of course—subversive innovation. Big thanks toand his team for setting up the conference.
Because each participant was more highly specialized in his or her own way, I had to bring a little right-brained juice to what might otherwise be a left-brained party. Every community needs a little inspiration, someone to remind them why. Channeling this archetype, I told them they would have to wrest the future from powerful people and that they were pretty much the Rebel Alliance. But membership in such an alliance takes courage and an unwavering commitment to a vision and a mission.
Anyway, someone was nice enough to record my talk. Here it is.
